Musician Grimes' backstage demands include "cute animals"

Bulldogs and chinchillas are both acceptable

A musician's rider, which details her backstage demands, "can be entertaining and revealing of an artist's personality," Pitchfork tells us.

For example, a rider allegedly belonging to Beyonce revealed that the superstar requires brand-new toilet seats and red toilet paper at every venue graced with her presence, thus confirming that she's (again, allegedly) a diva.


So what should we make of Canadian musician Grimes, née Claire Boucher, who posted her rider to Tumblr?

One the one hand, it takes a certain level of entitlement to refuse to eat any food that so much as touches a non-recyclable material.

On the other hand, it does show a strong commitment to eco-friendliness.

On the other, other hand, it includes a cute animal clause:

So yeah, she can probably get away with it.
