Robbie Williams was so annoyed by a $240 breakfast that he had an idea: He would build his own hotel in Dubai.
Singer Robbie Williams (49) is planning to have his own hotel built – in Dubai. He said this on Wednesday (November 1st). Plans for the luxury resort, which will include an event venue for him, are already underway. “I’m building a hotel, 700 rooms in Dubai,” said the former Take That singer.
The idea came to him after he was annoyed about an expensive breakfast at the hotel in Las Vegas. “I remember waking up and being charged $240 for breakfast. It was two croissants, a bowl of bran flakes and a coffee, and I thought, ‘Fuck off!'” Williams said. He was also angry about the minibar in the hotel, which “costs something if you open it and just pick something up.” He thought about Dubai and realized that there were no residencies for artists like him there. He found that interesting and therefore decided to dedicate himself to this project.
“What happens if I dream even bigger?”
Money hardly plays a role in his motivation, it is more the creativity and positive thoughts that Robbie Williams doesn’t want to “waste”. “So I dreamed so big and asked myself: What happens if I dream even bigger?” Above all, it seems that the 49-year-old wants to distract himself with building a hotel. “So I can either be over here in a bad mental state or I can be over there creating things that light a fire under me,” said the “Let Me Entertain You” singer.
Otherwise, he would spend too much time in negativity and in poor mental health. It was only in July that Williams announced on Instagram that he suffered from body dysmorphic disorder or dysmorphophobia. People who are affected by this are concerned with supposed flaws in their bodies and their perception of their own body image is disturbed.
