In a story too good to make up, Elton John apparently booked a separate hotel room for his sunglasses in Brazil last week ahead of a show he’ll be performing there on Saturday. The reason the specs needed their own space? He wanted them to be kept at a specific temperature. Let’s all pretend this makes any kind of sense at all and isn’t the most ridiculous thing you’ve heard today.
From The Sun:
The Rocket Man singer booked the added accommodation at the five star Ouro Minas for his legendary glasses, ahead of a gig in Brazil.
And organisers were sent in to make sure the temperature of the room stayed at 16 degrees Celsius (60.8 Fahrenheit).
A spokesperson for the show said: “Elton John asked for an extra room in the hotel for some of his collection of glasses because he needs a temperature of 16C to preserve the accessories.”
The 65-year-old star also requested large vases of red and white roses, four bottles of cranberry juice, a pint of fresh skimmed milk and two bottles of good quality Pinot Grigio wine, plus eight small bottles of Evian water, and five large bottles or 12 small bottles of San Pellegrino sparkling water.
I think Elton is losing his mind. First he befriends Chris Brown, now this? It sounds like a case of too much money, not enough sense. I gotta say, though, he’s a man after my own heart with all the beverages. Just on the table in front of me right now I’ve got an iced coffee, a glass of water and a bottle of Diet Coke. I could drink some chocolate milk right now if I had it, too. Drinks for everyone!
