    Default Kanye West asked BBC staff to iron his dressing room

    It's not unusual for megastars to make diva demands, but Kanye West's request to have his dressing room carpet ironed by BBC staff might be a step too far.

    The 36-year-old rapper - who welcomed his first child North into the world with Kim Kardashian in June - caused a stir on the Later with Jools Holland show on Tuesday when he made a series of outrageous requests before taking to the stage to perform.
    After turning up for rehearsals in Maidstone, Kent, the star was less than impressed with his studio set and demanded that staff tear it down and rebuild it to his original plans.

    He then insisted everything in his dressing room be replaced in the colour white, including the walls, sofa and flowers.
    The singer, who joined Sting and Kings of Leon on the show, was also adamant that he and his huge entourage should be given more than half of the fifteen dressing rooms available to the performers.
    However, he really shocked BBC employees when he asked for his carpet to be flattened out with a heated tool as it was too bumpy for his liking.

    The ego has landed: The star reportedly asked for his entourage to have half the dressing rooms




    French connection: Kanye West is seen going to an appearance on channel Canal+ in Paris.

    Host: Presenter Jools Holland has suffered countless bizarre requests from celebrities





    A source told The Sun newspaper: 'Everybody knew Kanye's reputation for being a handful, but nobody had heard of a request for a carpet to be ironed before.
    'His entourage took over the studio, even though plenty of other stars were present.
    'Luckily once he got to the performance he was very quiet and unassuming.'

    Perhaps the new father was letting off some steam after a recent altercation with the law. West has been charged with criminal battery and attempted grand theft after a fight with a photographer in LA's LAX airport in July.
    Both charges are misdemeanours but Kanye could face a year in jail if found guilty.
    The theft charge relates to the rapper reportedly attempting to take the photographer’s camera during the incident.


    Straight-faced: Despite his free time in the French capital, Kanye looked stoney-faced


    West will be arraigned on October 10th.
    The photographer, Daniel Ramos, who was also attacked by Britney Spears with an umbrella in 2007, was taken to a hospital following the assault and told authorities that he wanted to press charges against West.

    See, this is where the host should explain that the douchewad won't be appearing on the show and then list the reasons why to the audience. It'll be better than his stale, same old, same old performance anyway.

    Exactly! If I had a job, where I came into contact with obnoxious celebs, I'd like to think I'd tell them to go fuck themselves, when they made ridiculous demands like that. But the truth probably is, that nobody wants to be the person responsible for a prick like Kanye walking out on the show - that could be difficult to explain to the boss.

    It needs to come from higher up in the orgasnisation. The producer and/or host needs to tell their employees not to cater to ridiculous demands and not take shit from overly entitled celebs. Not that that's likely to happen.

    He is talented, but he also is a complete doucebag, or maybe he just believes his own publicity…
