All of the world’s most beautiful people are headed to summer camp. It’s a special gather put together by Google and it’s egotistically called, Google Camp.
That’s right, Sergey and Larry are hosting the likes of former President Barack Obama, Prince Harry, Leonardo DiCaprio and Katy Perry in Sicily, Italy, to discuss climate change. However, in the words of Joe Biden, “C’mon, man!” This swanky love-fest will cost Mother Earth big time.
“Everything is about global warming, that is the major topic this year,” a source told the New York Post.
Sources told the media outlet that the three-day event will cost the tech giants $20 million.
Many of the guests, including Obama and DiCaprio (who has his own climate change foundation) have described global warming as the biggest threat to future generations.
Italian press reports say that the Google Campers will show up in 114 private jets, and 40 had arrived by Sunday.
“Google Camp is meant to be a place where influential people get together to discuss how to make the world better,” a source told the Post. “There will likely be discussions about online privacy, politics, human rights, and of course, the environment, which makes it highly ironic that this event requires 114 private jets to happen.”
Attendees, who according to a source were personally invited by Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page, reportedly will foot the bill for their travel costs to Sicily’s Verdura Resort, but Google will pay the rest of their expenses. Rooms reportedly start at $903 a night in the luxurious vacation spot.
Other stars in attendance will be Perry’s fiancee Orlando Bloom, singer Harry Styles, Bradley Cooper, Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra, Gayle King, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, designer Diane von Furstenberg and Barry Diller. Furstenberg and Diller reportedly arrived via their $200 million yacht Eos; Dreamworks founder David Geffen is said to have given Perry and Bloom a lift to the event on his $400 million yacht, Rising Sun.
Perry, who’s starred in UNICEF videos about combating climate change, was spotted in a Maserati SUV that, at best, gets only an estimated 15 miles per gallon.
Google Camp proves that fame, fortune, and beauty don’t equate with brains and wisdom.
