Outlandish tour riders are nothing new when it comes to chart-topping stars. But Justin Bieber’s demands for his first-ever gig in India reached new heights of excess. Featuring everything from yoga caskets to Swedish fish, here’s a look at the list which suggests the teen idol is the biggest diva in pop.
Born in London, Ontario, in March 1994, Bieber grew up in the Canadian city of Stratford. He was largely raised by his mother Pattie, who took several jobs to make ends meet, and his stepfather Bruce. He also has several half-siblings and a stepsister named Allie.
Bieber began playing various instruments including the drums, guitar and piano from a young age. He first caught attention when a video clip of his talent show performance of Ne-Yo’s “So Sick” was uploaded to YouTube by his mother Pattie. The future star then quickly began to develop an online following as his mom continued to post footage of his singing talents.
