Just in case you had any doubt: Jay Z and Kanye are total divas. Their hotel riders have leaked (thanks, TMZ), and some of the demands are so over-the-top, you won't believe it. But who's the bigger diva? Let's compare.
Any room of Jay Z's must be 71 degrees, and must contain three $80 Mayan tuberose-scented candles. Vacuuming anywhere near his room is a no-no, and they better not ask for concert tickets if they want to "avoid embarrassment." He also requires Ace of Spades champagne, but he refuses to be charged for it since he owns the company.
Jay also has (totally reasonable) requirements in place for the sake of his daughter Blue Ivy: the room must be babyproof, which means no breakable objects, and no uncovered corners, sharp edges, or electrical outlets. As for refreshments, Blue only drinks organic whole milk.
Kanye, unsurprisingly, gets weird about his demands, insisting that all vases must be cylindrical. He also has no qualms about making the staff earn their pay, requesting a Genelecs 1031a speaker in his room, even though they were discontinued ten years ago. He also requires that all towels be black, all floss minty, and his bottle list? It totals up to $3,200 for only 13 bottles, and includes three bottles of Paradis Hennessy. As far as food goes, Kanye is apparently a big fan of Kashi GoLean cereal. Who knew?
