Skip to comments.Sheryl Crow's Backstage List & Carbon Footprint (Hypocrisy From Toilet Paper Diva!!!)
Posted on 04/23/2007 8:49:06 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
When it comes to Sheryl Crow's touring requirements, if it's Tuesday, this must be Bombay. Gin that is. The rock star's performance contract includes specific day-to-day instructions on what kind of booze Sheryl needs in her dressing room (TSG has never seen such attention to detail in any other concert rider we've posted). For each show, Crow requires 12 bottles of Grolsch beer, 6 bottles of "local" beer, and a bottle each of "good Australian Cabernet" and "good Merlot." As for the harder stuff, promoters are directed to purchase specific booze depending on what day of the week the concert falls, as the below rider excerpt reveals. Additionally, when the global warming warrior hits the road, her touring entourage (and equipment) travels in three tractor trailers, four buses, and six cars. Now that's a carbon footprint!

But at least she’s wiping her saggy, old ass with one square of TP.....
If she was really as green as she pretends, she would be dumping all the booze into her tour bus fuel tank.
typical liberal Do as I say, not as a I do. This doesn’t surprise me!
“Wha ... what day is it? Oh, hang on ... I’m drinking Gin and tonics, so ... it must be ... uh ... Monday.”
What about the environmental impact of all that ciggy smoke? I wonder if she and her crew are among those who think the ground is their personal ashtray?
I think I hate environmentalists as much as I do Hillary.
Actually the list of refreshments based on this is not anything out of the norm.
Van Halen had a note that no brown M&Ms could be backstage. They would destroy stuff if they found it there.
All the big entertainers have this but some are totally outlandish. There’s usually a small group, like the musicians who support the main artist who get to enjoy the stuff. With Cheryl, it’s hard to say who that is but someone likes Grolsch. Maybe it’s the drummer for all we know.
She’s going to regret this toilet paper square remark to the grave.
Don’t forget that everyone is allowed 1 sheet of toilet paper per day.
I tell ya, anytime I hear Crow’s name from now on, all I can think is...
She’s must be ‘nasty’ down there! uuugh
wait..she didn’t mean SHE was going to use one square..SHE can use all she wants, it’s the little people who have to use one square..
Easy there killer. I like Grolsch. Haven’t had it in a while but it’s a quality beer.
She likes a good beer buzz early in the morning.
I don’t know how big her carbon footprint is, but if she’s only using one sheet of toilet paper to, uh, y’know? Her carbon buttprint is NAAAAASTY.
Well, there's no accounting for taste, but I daresay you're wrong. Grolsch tastes like skunked Heineken.
I would have given you all of my paper but there's someone who's torn it apart and she's taking away almost all that I've got but if you want, I'll try to wipe again baby I'll try to wipe again but I know
The first wipe is the cleanest baby I know The first wipe is the cleanest 'cause when it comes to being clean she's cursed when it comes to wipin' me she's worst but when it comes to being green she's first that's how I know
The first wipe is the cleanest, baby I know The first wipe is the cleanest.
What a drunken lush. Isn’t Big Tobacco as bad as Bigoil??
What a Limocrite!
Pray for W and Our Troops
You might be right about Grolsch, but if you give me that and a Spud, I’m going with the Heine skunk.
I agree. Most beers in green bottles taste kind of skunky to me.
I think heineken taste like beer poured through an Indian Navy Sailors a$$.
(Note: I have never had beer poured through an Indian Sailors a$$ but I can just imagine its not a nice tasting thing!)
So now we know the reason for her breakup with Lance Armstrong. Skid marks in lingerie have a tendency to damper anyone’s ardor.
You may know this already but the no-brown clause was inserted to test the attention to detail by each venue manager/promoter - if they couldn't handle the M&M provision then the band didn't trust them to comply with requirements relative to the stage setup. The rigs/risers were very heavy and they feared accidents.
I tell ya, anytime I hear Crows name from now on, all I can think is...
Shes must be nasty down there! uuugh
Did you go a few pages into the list?
They had requested shower facilities and then crossed it out.
Damned Nasty down there..........
All I wanna do is wipe my bum
I got a feeling I’ll take only one ...
Will her next tour be called the “Smell The Hand” tour?
Can ya spare a square?
I wonder if she has read or heard about this Smoking gun piece? Is she so self absorbed that it would not matter?
That sure is a lot of booze. Ohhhh, and did you see the request for Marlboro Lights! She smokes!!!!!!!!!!
No, not a square to spare...
Funniest show ever produced IMHO.
That might be sexist. There's a fine line between clever and stupid.
Of course, there IS another, more logical explantion re. why the toilet tissue tyrant thinks the rest of us should be limited to a single sheet per visit to the crapper: It is quite probable that she hasn’t used the facility for YEARS.
Which would also explain why she is so full of s**t.
Grolsch is a quality beer. All the home brews that I have tasted taste like candy. That’s not beer, Grolsch is beer.
Of course she smokes....she needs something to cover up the smell from using only 1 sheet of poo-poo paper!!!
Crowe for President!
She’s one square with the poopulation.
Something is printing, and it ain't her foot.
I had no idea! I figured it was something sexual.
Maybe we should recycle toilette paper.
These people haven’t got enough brains to get in out of the rain.
They should do what they do best - entertain - and leave serious thinking to people who have cognitive abilities.
Does Sheryl believe smoke and energy used to create gold doesn't count? She can't see the gold mines and smelters so they're not there?
What a hypocrite -- or fool. Or both.
Crow goes beyond limousine liberal category.
She’s a gulfstream jet liberal. Truely the most hypocritical of all liberals.
She doesn’t care. She probably uses a “bidet.”
That’s why these bands/singers make these nit-picky requests. They want to make sure that the venue/promoters actually read the contract. They just have to one-up each other as well.
Sheryl has been one of the biggest hypocrites when it comes to the environment. A few years ago when the Iraq war started, and she went off about no blood for oil, many of her fans challenged her about her SUVs. She (allegedly) sold her SUV as a result. She’s also an avid motocross rider, thus tearing up natural landscape and further polluting the air.
Of course, this is for a woman whose basically a folk singer, lately.
Friday night is margarita night!
Then repeat, lol. It’s takes a lot of alcohol to keep the liberal ideas working for ya.
Just like la Streisand telling us all to hang our laundry out to dry and not use dryers, among other things.
