Kanye West Requires Booze Slushie Machines Backstage on Tour
For those who say you can’t learn anything important on Snapchat, Kim Kardashian just proved you wrong. Turns out the app was her social media weapon of choice for revealing that the rider for her husband’s current Saint Pablo Tour requires that Kanye West and company have two full-on boozy slushie machines operating backstage during every show.
Earlier this week, Kardashian sent out a Snapchat showing off two frozen drink machines: one labeled “frozen Hennessy & Coke,” the other labeled “frozen Grey Goose lemonade.” Included with the imagery was the text, “Pablo rider is LIT.” At least we know Kim’s got her slang down.
Because it’s kind of what they do, TMZ looked into the story behind these decadent ways of getting drunk on tour and confirmed that, yes, these machines weren’t just an anomaly: The slushie makers are following Kanye around on tour right alongside his effects crew and probably a trailer full of very oddly tailored pants. “We're told the Goose is for Kim,” TMZ reported, “and according to the tour doc ... they'll be standard at every show.”
I’m certainly not the kind of person to get jealous over Kim and Kanye’s ridiculous lifestyle. That said, if you marry a person who will always make sure there’s an alcoholic slushie machine waiting for you wherever you go in the world – come on – that kind of is true love isn’t it?
