Pitbull's 'backstage blackout request'

Pitbull reportedly took extreme measures to ensure no one could see into his dressing room at Fusion Festival.

Pitbull apparently asked for blacked-out windows and a “love seat” in his dressing room at Fusion Festival.

The singer took to the stage at the event in Birmingham, England, on Saturday, where he frolicked with backing dancers while performing.

And according to British newspaper Metro, the star also shook things up by making some bizarre requests for his dressing room. The 33-year-old is said to have been keen to ensure no one could see into the space and also reportedly asked for a “chair for one-and-a-half people”.

“He wanted blacked-out windows so no passersby could see inside,” an insider told the publication’s Guilty Pleasures section.

“The fact he had three dressing rooms for him and his 30-strong entourage made that even harder for the poor backstage staff, who had to sort that out last minute.”

Pitbull wasn’t the only one to rock the stage at Fusion Festival. Jessie J hit the stage on Sunday, dressed in a sheer top and tiny black shorts. Despite announcing a hiatus earlier this year, The Wanted also joined the fun. Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Nathan Sykes and Tom Parker had their female fans screaming as they performed some of their biggest hits.

According to Metro, Jay, 24, turned up by himself the night before to take in the action. Insiders say he had a few drinks and was spotted “chatting up” girls on the Saturday evening.

“The crowd are screaming along to @OllieMarland’s “Rude” rendition! I’m maybe 2 beers in :) #Fusion (sic)," he tweeted.
