Several international celebrities have arrived in India recently, but none had these bizarre demands as Canadian sensation Justin Bieber has. The singer's bizarre demands list, including a Rolls Royce and a convoy of 10 luxury sedans, has gone viral on social media.
On Wednesday, music journalist Arjun S Ravi shared a "press release" from Bieber's team and that features a list of demands that the singer has made before his India visit. The long list includes a convoy of 10 luxury sedans, two Volvo buses and 120 people. He also needs a Rolls Royce and special security cars with Z+ level security.
"10 containers will be flown in with items like a ping pong table, PlayStation, IO HAWK, sofa set, washing machine, refrigerator, upholstery, wardrobe cupboard, massage table that will be used backstage. Arrangements for a Jacuzzi have also been made for Bieber's personal use to unwind before he takes to the stage," the list shared by the journalist stated.
For the singer, the organisers have booked two five star hotels for security purpose. Top chefs will make dishes named after his popular songs. His personal suite will be redesigned with Mogul paintings and antique furniture to give a more rustic look.

That is not all. He wants two packages of plain white crewneck tee-shirts, in two sizes, two packages of white tank tops, and three packages of white low-rise socks, in every dressing room. A boombox with an iPhone battery is also in the demands list to make sure that the singer doesn't run out of battery.
Bieber will perform in Mumbai on May 10 at Navi Mumbai's DY Patil Stadium as a part of the purpose tour. After performing in Mumbai, he has plans to travel to New Delhi, Jaipur and Agra, as he wants to see the Taj Mahal.
This is the first time that Bieber is visiting India and looks like he wants to make his tour a memorable one (and for his fans in India too, thanks to his bizarre demands).
