For Beyonce, the list above isn't her first to make headlines, and in the past she was accused of making diva-like demands. In February, the NFL stuck up for Beyoncé after rumors surfaced that she was making absurd dressing room demands for her half-time Super Bowl performance.
British tabloid Daily Star reported that while Beyoncé rehearsed in New Orleans for her half-time performance and had numerous excessive demands. Among them, she allegedly requested that her daughter, Blue Ivy, have a nursery decorated with rose-scented candles and that Blue Ivy's crib be shipped from New York.
"She’s by far one of the most difficult celebrities we’ve ever dealt with. The list [of demands] is as long as my arm. She may be a superstar, but this day is about football, not her,” a source told the tabloid.
The NFL later dismissed the allegations.
