Bret Michaels is suing concert promoters for breach of contract, and the catering rider provided in the lawsuit shows that it's not just female entertainers who have "diva demands." Of course, Michaels' requirements aren't quite as wacky as, say, Mariah Carey's ... but his rider does note that "Sprite is not a substitute for Mountain Dew," according to the Hollywood Reporter. It also requests, among other things, four cases of spring water at room temperature, a bottle of Beefeater gin, a case of Corona, and absolutely no Styrofoam cups.
