Eminem apparently requested expensive koi carp on his rider prior to his appearance at Tennent’s Vital festival in Northern Ireland last week.

The rapper asked for a wooden pond to be built in his backstage area and filled with the high end aquatic creatures, which can cost anything from £200-600 each. Other items on his rider for the festival included dumbbells, a microwave, seedless watermelon and yogurt, reports Contact Music.

Skylar Grey recently said she feels sorry for Eminem because he lives such an isolated life. Here’s hoping the pricey carp gave him the company he’s been seeking.

The singer, who featured alongside Eminem on Dr. Dre’s ‘I Need A Doctor’, the video for which you can watch at the bottom of the page, said the rapper was scared to leave his house.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, she commented:

I feel sorry for Em. It’s kind of sad. I see a lot of isolation. I wonder if he has got any really close friends. I think he is scared to go out the front door ’cos somebody is always waiting for him. Everybody wants something from him… Seeing him so isolated behind a lot of protectors, I feel bad for him.

Grey also wrote the hook for ‘Love The Way You Lie’ by Eminem featuring Rihanna. She is set to release her second album ‘Invinsible’ (sic), featuring a guest spot from Marilyn Manson, later this year.
