You know that famous story about Van Halen demanding M&M’s with all the brown ones removed in their dressing room before concerts? Well, that got us thinking: What do world-famous celebrities these days demand of the hotels they stay in? As we found out after a little bit of digging, the answer is quite a lot. All this week, we’ll share some of the more bizarre, befuddling, and downright diva-licious celebrity demands we came across. Oh, and for the real story behind those Van Halen M&M’s, see what Snopes has to say about it.
When investigating this topic, it became clear right away that divas of the music and theatrical world were at the top for craziest demands. Babs, Mariah, J-Lo and Britney are all very particular about their homes away from homes.

To hotel staffers, what exactly does one have to do to achieve status as a "nightmare" hotel guest? Towel-stealing? Calling the front desk asking for amenity after amenity to be delivered to their rooms? Loud drunks?
Yeah, no. Try throwing plates of spaghetti at walls, biting hotel security guards, and ordering xylophones up to their suites.
A couple of the gems after the jump.
Recent months have seen a few ugly celebrity scenes at Claridge's Hotel in London, with Courtney Love's careless cigarette behavior causing an expensive fire in her room (she's not allowed to go back), and friends visiting Kate Moss and Pete Doherty during their stay there needing to be ejected over some boisterous parties.
This week at Claridge's they've got Nicole Kidman and hubby Keith Urban as guests while they're in town for the premiere of Nicole's new movie The Golden Compass. That's the movie based on Philip Pullman's book Northern Lights, and it's interesting to know that Nicole only agreed to do the role--of a villain--after receiving a personal letter from Pullman.
Anyway, so far so good, no news that either Nicole or Keith have done any damage at Claridge's. Perhaps that'll restore their faith in celebrity guests.
