When Eminem travels abroad, he really needs his beauty sleep. According to the Sun Newspaper, the Detroit rhyme-spitter makes an unusual request when he checks into hotels overseas.

Apparently, Eminem requires that the hotel staff block all the light from the windows in his room by placing tin foil over the glass. This way, the ‘Lose Yourself’ rapper can get a full night’s rest without any interruption.

Furthermore, Em also requests that his suite be outfitted with speakers pumping ambient music throughout the room. “The noise and darkness gets Eminem the best night’s sleep,” a source told the Sun. “He uses the technique as he’s always jumping time zones.”

Considering the source, we don’t know if any of this is true or not. Some thick curtains and ear plugs could possibly be a better alternative than tin foil and Yanni music, but we digress.

However, Eminem has asked for some unusual things in his tour rider before.

The Smoking Gun uncovered Em’s food request list for his ‘Recovery’ tour in 2010. In it, the ‘Not Afraid’ rapper demanded that his dressing room have Gundelsheim pickles, jumbo shrimps, deli meats, condiments and 25 pound dumbbells on hand. What the dilly, yo?

We can only assume that Eminem loves to eat shrimp cocktails and pickles after a good workout.
