Justin Bieber’s proposed first ever performance in India is making news for all the wrong reasons.
The international pop star Justin Bieber is scheduled to perform in India on May 10 in Mumbai as part of his Purpose World Tour. However, prior to his visit, a list of demands reportedly made by the star has gone viral after it was shared on Twitter on Wednesday.
Images of a press release from Beiber’s people listing arrangements for the star were shared by music journalist Arjun S Ravi.

As per this press release, among the prerequisites to be arranged include “a convoy of 10 luxury sedans and 2 Volvo buses” for Bieber and his 120-person-entourage. A private Rolls Royce for himself, and a Z level security by the police, in addition to his personal 8-member security detail have also been requested.
“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 continued.
Along with these items, two 5-star hotels have been reserved in their entirety for Bieber and his team. The personal 1,000-square-foot suite will appear more rustic after having it restructured.
“His room will be adorned with purple carnations, purple being his favorite color! The hotel will convert itself into Bieber’s private villa with three floors of the hotel being booked for the artist and his entourage and one elevator blocked on all 4 full days for Bieber alone.”
“Top culinary experts will supervise the gourmet being served to Bieber over the 4 days with 5 dishes per day being renamed after his popular song... A special Indian Yoga Casket containing aromatic essential oils; jasmine, mogra, rose and camphor incense sticks; and books on chakras and yoga asanas will be placed in Bieber’s suite knowing his love for Yoga.”
A personal masseuse (flown in from Kerala) will also be joining Bieber throughout his stay. “The promoters have also kept a private jet and chopper on stand-by to meet the artist’s immediate travel demands in India.”
