Unlike Coldplay, Justin Bieber does not want the Mumbai experience.
Justin Bieber’s India tour, scheduled to take place on May 10, has taken the country by storm — but this Canadian singer doesn’t come cheap. Bieber’s has a list of demands for the tour, which could put the Queen to shame (okay, that’s an exaggeration).
It’s common knowledge that celebrities like to be pampered during tours and JB is no exception.
Indian music journalist Arjun S Ravi tweeted a press release stating a set of demands Bieber has asked for during his tour in India, and let’s just say it’s a looooong read.
Here’s a breakdown:
JB will only travel in a Rolls Royce and his entourage of 120 people will travel in 10 luxury sedans and 2 Volvos — this does not include security personnel, btw.
The singer will be flying to the stadium (concert venue) and a private jet and chopper will be available on call for Bieber’s ‘immediate travel demands’ in India.
10 containers including a sofa set, washing machine, refrigerator, ping pong table, Playstation, massage table, among other things, will be flown in with the singer, AND there has to be a Jacuzzi for his personal use before he hits the stage.
Two 5-star hotels will be reserved for security reasons. The hotel will convert itself into Justin Bieber’s private villa and redesign his suite to incorporate Mogul paintings, antique furniture and signature Kashmiri bedroom linen. Three floors of the hotel will be booked for JB and his entourage with one elevator only for the singer’s use.
The 1000 sq ft room will be adorned with purple carnations, since purple is JB’s favourite colour.

A licensed female masseuse will be flown in from Kerala available for the singer during his four-day stay.
