Beyonce’s toilet seats. You heard me.

Years ago on a previous Beyonce tour, a rumour about her contract rider leaked out her stop in Toronto. One of the things she apparently demanded for her dressing room was red toilet paper. No other colour was acceptable. It had to be red. No idea.

Beyonce continues to be particular with the Renaissance tour. Someone snapped a picture of a roadcase backstage at a recent show labeled “toilet seats.” According to this report, her team “spends thousands” to fly these toilet seats around the word so Be never, ever has to sit on a used one.

The Sun says “Her tour roadies have seen everything so it’s not a great deal for them, but it does raise a smile from people who happen to catch a glimpse of the branded container.” The toilet seat case goes along with Be’s golf cart which is covered in black sheets so no one can see her when she rides around backstage. Tour crew outside of her close entourage are also banned from approaching closer than 50 metres to her special VIP dining area.

Why? Whatever it takes to keep her happy and comfortable. No word on what happens to a seat once she uses it. That would be an interesting piece of merch, no?
