Sir Paul McCartney performing at the Hollywood Bowl in March. Doubt he stayed in a budget hotel there.

Last week, we couldn't believe it when we read that Jay-Z and Beyonce shacked up at in a room at the budget brand hotel, Premiere Inn for the Isle of Wight music festival. But that was like, totally true! And they weren't the only rich music stars spending the night in budgie accommodations.

The Daily Mail reports that Sir Paul McCartney stayed at the Premier Inn when he headlined the music festival last weekend. However, Sir Paul had to gussy up his room a bit while he was there:

Sir Paul McCartney, who headlined the Isle of Wight music festival this weekend, decorated his budget accommodation in Newport with Moroccan drapes and his very own Buddha in a bid to transform the room.

He also added candles and incense to the room. Not surprisingly, the Premier Inn folk were thrilled, saying that "We’ll be more than happy to welcome him with open arms if he decides to make another visit!"

Premier Inn might need a new tagline now: If it's good enough for Beyonce, Jay-Z and Sir Paul, then it's good enough for you. Rooms start at just £29 this summer.
