With Cheryl Cole about to head off on her first ever solo headline tour, the singer naturally has list of dressing room demands to make life on the road easier.
While some stars might demand flowing rivers of Crystal, or a dressing room filled with white roses, Cheryl only wants sweet things. And by that we mean sweet things to eat and sweet things that make you go, ‘aaah’.
Telling This Morning about her tour rider, Cheryl says she wants, “Sweets, chocolates, jellies... and I love a biscuits.”
So far, so normal. But her next demand is a little more unconventional, she also wants to some cute puppies to play with,
“And puppies so I can play with puppies! I do have my own dogs, but they are old now and they're not as much fun - they're lazy. I want babies,” she jokingly demands.
To be fair, we’ve often thought that the only thing missing from heat Towers is a pen full of puppies for us to play with whenever we need a screen break.
The Girls Aloud singer also talked about pre-show nerves, explaining that before a performance she likes to zone out,
“There's a lot of nervous energy before you perform – I like to be left alone with the earphones in, not thinking about anything and just zone out, and then I have a little gathering with the dancers.”
And is there one dancer in particular that you like to have a ‘gathering’ with Cheryl? Would his name be Tre Holllway by any chance?
And if Cheryl’s nerves get too bad, she’ll hopefully have her Girls Aloud BFFs on hand to help settle them, as Cheryl says that they will visit her on tour,
“Yeah they'll be there absolutely. The tour will be different because I've only ever toured with the girls so that's going to be a new experience for me.”
With puppies backstage will anyone want to watch Cheryl though?
