    How the fuck does stirring your coffee counter clockwise make it better? Why can't she stir her own coffee? I would gladly stir her coffee counter clockwise, but she would be getting more then cream and sugar.

    Everyone is a freaking alcoholic.

    Some are actually reasonable. Don't know why some they want puppies and kittens though.

    A friend of mine works publicity for a major venue here in Atlanta and can vouch for Alanis Morisette being one of the least demanding stars to work with.

    The requests for animals disturbs me! Not that I think they are necessarily doing anything wrong to them, but how to you bring a puppy or a kitten to someone just to have for a limited amount of time while they are performing?? Those poor animals must be freaked out to be in a new environment around all those new people. What happens to the them after the performance is over...they just go back to where they came from?
    So you hate your job? There's a support group for that....It's called EVERYBODY and they meet at the bar.

    How would she be able to tell the difference? Do they stir it in front of her?

    Yeah, the puppies and kittens are not cool. Pets are not accessories or toys that can be discarded when you are done with them.

    Completely vapid. The fact that these numbers are totally random makes me think these celebrities just do it to see if they can get away with it or if a venue will flub it by providing them with 205 towels instead of 204 so they'll have an excuse to act even more outlandish.

    J.Lo's coffee to be stirred counter clockwise. Bitch is lucky I'm not on the backstage crew at any of her venues or she'd find more than creamer in her coffee.

    That's about the only logical one of the bunch, next to Sinatra's ear, nose and throat specialist.
