David Beckham moving into $21k/night hotel suite

David Beckham out and about in London (2/7)

A few weeks ago, David Beckham signed a five-month deal with soccer club Paris Saint-Germain. And what a five months it’s going to be. He’s not actually going to make any money (he’s donating his salary to charity), but the team is putting him up in the $21,600/night 3,225 sq ft Royale Suite at the Le Bristol Hotel in Paris. That works out to $669k for a one month stay, which is completely fucking insane. A source told Grazia magazine:

“It costs around $21,600 a night, however PSG will foot the bill. The local area is perfect, there are lots of lovely shops nearby, such as Hermes and Colette, plus boat rides along the Seine for the children. For dining out, La Maison Du Caviar is uber-cool and loved by Karl Lagerfeld … David’s French is awful, so he’s signed up to weekly classes.”

Holy sport that no one cares about — that’s a lot of scratch to keep Burger King’s pitchman happy. I don’t follow fake sports, but I’m pretty sure that David isn’t as good at soccer as he used to be, so WTF? If he really wants to be thought of as a good guy, he should also donate that $669k to charity and stay at any Motel 6. For $60 a night, you get two beds with barely any semen on them, free WiFi fast enough to download an entire episode of Homeland in just a week, and walls thick enough to muffle even the loudest hooker’s cries of pain. Hey Motel 6, see what I just did? That’s called an endorsement. You can drop my check in the mail.
