Boy George Is Reviewing Hotel Thread Counts Now

I honestly don’t know what to think about Boy George‘s latest career move, becoming a blogger for Paper magazine. Or, more appropriately, the magazine’s hotel room correspondent.

The sometimes-pop star will be “writing about anything and everything,” we’re assured. And to kick things off, hotel amenities? Sure why not.

When you travel as much as I do, the comfort of a bed or quality of the pillows are deal-breakers (I like a hard pillow myself.). That said, I couldn’t tell you if my bed at the Hillscourt Conference Centre, where I’m staying while I attend my cousin Vanessa’s wedding to her fiance Dave, was comfortable or not because I didn’t sleep a wink last night. I’ve been poorly the past few days, dehydration or some minor bug, and have been sleeping for queen and country. Hence my restlessness. But, hey, I’m here for two nights and might yet rave about the splendor of the bed.

The Hillscourt isn’t really a proper hotel even if it does have some rooms. Last night in the bar I tried to order a coffee and was told by the waitress, “sorry love, the machine’s broken.” I was waiting for a “but if you don’t mind instant, I’ll pop the kettle on,” but not a chance. When I requested a bottled water, she looked at me as if I had grown an extra head and pointed me towards a water fountain. In retrospect this was quite thrifty, but what I wanted was a coffee.

B.G. goes on to describe what he watched on television that night. Sadly, it was not this.

    She would have been perfect for an American Idol judge.

    George used to write a column for a newspaper in England. It was actually funny and entertaining some of the time. But this piece was really boring. Like a lot of celebrities he thinks that every thought he has and every thing he does no matter how mundane is fascinating to us non-famous people.
    He goes on about his (heterosexual) cousin’s wedding, but never says one word in the piece about the fight for marriage equality for gay people. You would think if you had a platform you would want to mention such an important issue and not mundane things like your hotel room or bad tv shows.

    Yes she would make a great american idol judge!
    Once Simon left, we weren’t sure if she could replaced–the way she sparred with Ms. Secrest.
    But Ms. George would be a perfect match for Ms. Secrest.

    George can’t be an American Idol judge because he’s banned from entering the United States because of his conviction for handcuffing an escort.
    He can be funny, but I find him very overrated and overhyped. I find him quite mean, nasty and hypocritical. He’s criticized shows such as American Idol many times before so to be a judge on there would be hypocritical and would show he’s just about the money and the fame.

    I would like to share with you more about travelling. I like it very much. I junkets a lot, almost once a month and visit multitudinous towns and countries. One of the most beautiful cities I motto form without surcease is Krakow. This city is as a matter of fact superb. You can initiate there a portion of restaurants, interesting places to fall upon and definitely you will become aware of remember to sleep.

    In experience accommodation in Krakow is equal of the surpass from Polish cities so when you go to Poland and prerequisite to find comfortable accommodation you sooner a be wearing to extend to Krakow. If noclegi Krakow is not facer for you, you determination all things considered clear interested that a destiny of interesting places that are due to the fact that unwavering quality visiting – old churches, out of date buildings, restaurants. Of course you find in Krakow also uncountable places to go shopping if you as a matter of fact need.

    I’ve been to Krakow twice and I anticipate to set off there next week with my girlfriend. I think you should also ho there
