London (ANI): Singer Rihanna is the latest to join the diva club after she demanded an Irish Garda escort to help her deal with traffic on the way to a concert in Ireland. The Umbrella singer made the wild appeal to concert promoters after observing the jamming on her last visit to Dublin. The R & B beauty made it clear to the organizers that the Irish police escort was an indispensable condition to her performing in the capital.
However, an industry insider revealed that Rihanna's stormy request was not going to be fulfilled. "She requested a full Garda escort to help her beat the Dublin traffic. But it is not going to happen," The Sun quoted the insider, as saying.
The Barbadian singer's demands also included a regular Garda presence for security reasons. "We get a lot of these demands because artists from the USA get crazy demands met when they are on tour," the insider said. "However in Ireland there is just no way you could do something like that. "We try to meet as many of Rihanna's requests as possible because she is the hottest international act at the moment. But that is one step too far," the insider added.
