Pop stars can pretty much demand whatever they want. And Pharrell Williams wants a framed picture of Carl Sagan.

The Smoking Gun got a hold of Williams' tour rider for his 2015 performances. And among the various specified food and drinks is the desire to have a protected picture of the late astronomer looking down on him with supposed kindly pride.

The 42-year-old Williams has spoken of being obsessed with Sagan since watching the original "Cosmos" series when he was a child. The Sagan photo demand actually appears twice in Williams's list of dressing room requirements.

The "Happy" singer's backstage digs must also contain Patron tequila, Ketel One vodka, gluten-free bread and crackers, Pedialyte, Cetaphil cleansing wipes and lotion, and a "box of matches (Very Important)."



He's even documented it on his Instagram account.

The perfect rider...candy, Pedialyte and Carl Sagan.

In 1996, just months before he died, astronomer/astrophysicist/author Carl Sagan recorded this message to future colonists living on Mars.

Very interesting to hear 16 years later, in the light of Curiosity's landing, and cuts jeopardizing our national space programs.

Hopefully a few politicians are listening to his words of wisdom.
