A representative for Sir Elton John has reportedly denied claims that the singer insisted gig organizers in Brazil book a separate hotel room for his collection of glasses.
Elton, known for his eccentric eyewear, is set to play in Belo Horizonte in Brazil this weekend, and according to The Daily Telegraph, wanted another suite in the (five-star) Ouro Minas Hotel, kept at a special temperature, to help keep his glasses in tip-top shape.
“Elton John asked for an extra room in the hotel for some of his collection of glasses because he needs a temperature of 16 C to preserve the accessories,” said an unnamed spokesperson, who also said the star’s other requests included vases of red and white roses, four bottles of cranberry juice, a pint of fresh, skimmed milk and two bottles of wine. It’s certainly not unheard of — in fact, it’s fairly kosher — for stars to have a list of personal requests for their dressing rooms or hotels.
But according to the Daily Mail, a spokesperson for the Elton camp has denied that the, “my glasses need their own hotel room” claims have any grounds.
