#30. Beyonce

Beyonce has plenty of needs that must be met before she can get on stage to perform in front of thousands each night on tour. Mostly, it seems like she does everything she can to preserve her voice including requests to keep her dressing room at a toasty 78 degrees and the addition of rose-scented candles.

She also loves having plenty of tasty food options available for herself and her crew including heavily seasoned baked chicken legs, thighs and breasts. Additionally, the songstress can only be seen with Pepsi products, so anything Coke must go!
