Christina Aguilera Travels Like a True Diva to Michael Jackson Tribute Concert
It's no surprise that Christina Aguilera travels in style, but some may be shocked to hear of her recent demands on her trip to Cardiff for the Michael Jackson tribute concert.
According to the Daily Mail, the 'Voice' coach traveled by train to Cardiff, Wales with an entourage of over 22 people. She was also greeted by two uniformed British Transport Police officers from First Great Western, the UK train company.
Naturally, not just any array of snacks and beverages would do for the international pop star. She reportedly requested Belvedere vodka, chilled champagne, bottles of chilled Pinot Grigio, Fiji water, Fuji apples, unsalted almonds and pure honey be available for her consumption.
The 30 year old and her entourage were also given access to the Queen Victoria Lounge at Paddington, which is used by the Queen and other members of the Royal Family. However, Aguilera wanted to add her own flair, so she asked that it be decorated with candles, white roses and more champagne. She was denied the candles because of their safety risk, but got everything else she requested.
The singer reportedly spent £6,000 ($9,312 US) on hiring part of a first-class carriage, but declined the option of reserving an entire train for £25,000, which is about $39,000 in US dollars. After all, we are in a downward economy.
