Justin Bieber has been trying to shed his reputation as something of a teenage tearaway after years of high-profile controversies – including comments about Anne Frank being a Belieber, visiting a highly divisive shrine in Japan and getting arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Miami.

But his latest rider request for his upcoming tour in India is likely to raise more eyebrows after he listed a bunch of diva demands about how he should be looked after and pampered during his time in the country.

The leaked list was posted on Twitter by music journalist Arjun S Ravi, who pointed out the jaw-dropping demands.

Among the non-negotiable stipulations included in Bieber's rider are luxury transport for his entourage of 120 people (and a Rolls Royce reserved solely for him, of course), a Jacuzzi installed for him to unwind before he goes onstage, and an 'Indian yoga casket' stuffed full of essential oils and books on chakras to be left in his hotel suite.

And speaking of his five-star accommodation, two entire hotels have been reserved for the 23-year-old star and his massive team - his own personal 1,000 sq ft suite is being redesigned to Bieber's taste and will be filled with antique furniture, Mogul art and purple carnations - and not the kind you can buy at your local petrol station.

Bieber has also banned lilies from his presence - presumably to make room for the ping-pong table, playstation and personal masseuse that are being flown in to make his time backstage as comfortable as possible.

The rider lists a private jet AND helicopter to be kept on standby so Justin can go off and visit some of India's most beautiful sights on a whim, and he's refused to travel by road while he's there, according to the leaked list.

He's also thought to have demanded gourmet chefs come to cater to his needs, and they'll be cooking up five dishes a day that will be renamed after his hit songs - perhaps Sor-roti, Love Yoursamosa and What Dosa You Mean.

Bieber's dressing room must be draped with white curtains and he's got to have 24 bottles of alkaline water, ranch sauce-coated vegetables and - strangely - 12 white handkerchiefs, the list demands.

The white theme continues with the poplet also needing access to two packages of plain white t-shirts (sizes XS and L), two packages of tank tops, three packages of white trainer socks and platters of white cheddar popcorn, white sliced bread and crisps when he's backstage.

Of course, Bieber isn't the first pop star to make outrageously detailed demands for his rider - Mariah Carey famously needs to be surrounded by 20 white kittens and have an assistant employed just to dispose of her chewing gum, while Kanye West once reportedly asked for his dressing room carpet to be ironed because it was too bumpy.
