Justin Bieber's rock star wants include Swedish fish and t-shirt time?

justin-bieber-swedish-fishImage Credit: Kevin Mazur/WireImage.comIf you had any doubt that Justin Bieber is a down-to-earth teen star, take a look at his tour rider, just released by The Smoking Gun. Seriously, you should all be beliebers (heh) now. In an era where musicians make some downright insane backstage demands, young Bieber stays really levelheaded with his touring wants. Turns out the Biebs hardly makes brand requests for anything, except for Vitamin Water and Swedish Fish in America or Big Foots candy in Canada. That means all the tea, honey, potato chips, and condiments Biebz is requesting can be from… anywhere. This is a foreign concept for celebrities, if you poke through more tour riders on The Smoking Gun, and in all honesty, I know non-famous people who are more particular about their food brands than Bieber seems to be. And he is Justin Bieber — the Prince of Pop!

As sparse as his tour rider is, I am puzzled by a few requests, though. On page two, he demands that all cups be made of quality material, yet on page three he asks for Solo cups. More surprising are his requests for t-shirts and socks of all sizes except medium, but including the hard-to-come-by XS.

While the Bieber tour rider makes him seem “aw shucks” cute and sensible, part of me wishes it was somewhat like Iggy Pop’s tour rider, which is 18 pages filled with requests and downright hilarious commentary — and reality television show pitches. Come on Bieber, at least ask for them to sort your Swedish Fish by color! Get crazy!

What do you think, PopWatchers? Are you surprised Justin isn’t asking for more goodies backstage?

    A) Swedish Fish only come in one color so I guess they already are sorted…
    B)He wants solo cups to play beer ponggg
    C) I want to make my own list.. :)

      Actually, Swedish Fish come in many colors (even though the “all reds” version is by far the most popular).

      I think Steve Martin’s tour rider is my favorite.

        Gosh, I sound like such a Swedish Fish n00b.

      Beer pong? I hope he plays with root beer.

      Anyway… Yeah, I’m trying to picture myself as a rock/pop star or a wee pop giant going through puberty in slow-mo and what kind of ridiculous demand I would make and I can’t really think of any. I don’t like giving strangers a hard time. I reserve that for family.
      It’s true, though. Some of these so-called “rock star” demands can easily be equalled or outdone by ordinary people that I know.
      As amusing as some of the more outlandish rock star demands can be, I really wish more of these overgrown children with guitars and countless millions could be more reasonable.
      But, then I guess they wouldn’t be rockstars. They’d be Justin Bieber.
