Eminem's diva demands
16:30 03 August 2005
Eminem has reportedly turned into a diva after making a series of outrageous demands for his upcoming tour - including huge buckets of KFC chicken.
The US rapper, who will be touring Britain with protégé 50 Cent in September, has made a long list of luxury items.
Eminem has told promoters he wants a "play room" - which "must accommodate eight persons" - complete with a giant TV, a Sony Playstation 2, a basketball hoop and a ping pong table.
The 'Lose Yourself' singer has also told organisers the room must contain specific food and alcohol, including luxury cognac, expensive champagne, and European-strength lager.
A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "He wants two cases of Heineken lager, two bottles of Hennessy cognac and three bottles of Cristal champagne.
"He also wants a 24-piece bucket of KFC and a selection of mixed sweets and chocolates."
The 32-year-old hip-hop star has also requested a personal masseuse to be on hand at all times and a selection of low-carb health products.
The source added: "The services of a masseuse must be available and the artist has also said he wants 10 low-carb protein bars, and half-a-dozen cans of low-carb protein shakes."
