It’s been reported here in the UK that Beyoncé Knowles booked a hotel room - just for her luggage!
The diva was performing at the Liverpool Echo Arena, but stayed in Manchester in the lavish Charles Forte Presidential Suite at the Lowry Hotel at the rate of about £2,450 ($4,000) a night.
But after struggling to find space for her 12 items of luggage, her minders rented another room, this time at Liverpool’s Malmaison hotel.
A source there told the Press:
“She had seven suitcases, three hand-luggage bags and two boxes, all for her mammoth concert. In the cases were, apparently, 14 dresses, lots of shoes, make-up and 25 wigs.”
It apparently took four helpers to carry her luggage up the stairs to the room.
Beyoncé is not the only singer who refuses to travel light. Last year, Mariah Carey flew to London for a three-day trip – and brought 20 suitcases with her.
