Supermodel Heidi Klum might have squeezed into a gold mini-dress at the American Music Awards, but she pigged out on midnight Maccas on the way home.

"Finishing off a great night at @theAMAs with a great friend, @desireegruber & a great meal from @McDonald’s!’ she tweeted after the awards.

Klum had a moment on stage to introduce Pink at the awards, but she didn’t stick to the script of her former McDonald’s Salads Plus ambassador role – instead tucking into a burger and chips.

But she's not the only hot celebrity to down a little junk food recently: Rihanna's recent tour shopping list reveals a less than strict diet.

The singer's 777 tour plane was stocked with Oreos, chips, vodka, Red Bull and stuffed olives, among other things as she hit seven destinations in seven days.

Rihanna's private Boeing has travelled from Mexico City to Los Angeles, Toronto, Stockholm, Paris, Berlin, London and finally New York and needed more than jet fuel for the journey.

TMZ reported the rider was pages long, but the highlights included:

  • One package of Oreos
  • One large bag of Haribo brand Gold Bears
  • One box of Capri Suns
  • 10 bags of cheddar cheese Ruffles
  • Red Bulls, Grey Goose, Coke, Sprite, Ginger Ale, Diet Coke
  • 10 bags of Flaming Hot Cheetos (delicious)
  • Stuffed olives
  • One box of Golden Grahams cereal
  • Mini Babybel cheeses

Vogue's November issue has also released details of her regular diet, according to her personal chef Kamal Kalokoh, is far from steamed chicken and broccoli.

"She loves pasta and Caribbean food — her favourite thing is curried chicken. She eats a lot of rice-based meals," he told us. "She likes those carbs and can honestly eat anything. She's a creature of habit," he said.

He said the carb cravings were a result of her intensely physical performances.

"All that rice gives her enough energy for her job … She knows that. She's not a fan of fast food. You wouldn't see her in McDonald's."
