What do English Breakfast tea, Baked! Lays potato chips, low salt tuna and apple slices have in common? Give up — they’re just a few of the items that Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger requested to have in her dressing room at The 2007 Video Music Awards. In fact all the evening’s performers had strict lists (also known as Riders) of their demands, and some are just too crazy to believe! Like the fact that Fall Out Boy must be supplied with an 8’x8’ break dance mat that cannot be made out of cardboard! And 50 Cent, who is a big-time peanut butter & jelly fan, is obviously environmentally conscious because he let MTV staffers know that “No styrofoam will be accepted!” And what about the night’s biggest star, Justin Timberlake? Well, he must work up quite a thirst performing because he requested ginger ale, Coke, Sprite, Fiji Water, root beer, Diet Coke, tonic water, soda water, cranberry juice, orange juice and apple juice. Or perhaps those were just the mixers because he also asked for champagne, Coors Light, Corona, Heineken, Crown Royal, Jack Daniels, Grey Goose Vodka and Captain Morgan’s Original Spiced Rum. Guess we know where the night’s biggest party truly was — Justin’s dressing room!
