Eventually, the woman entered, calling out to alert anyone who could be within her presence.
She may have known that the unnamed guest was Michael Hutchence, who had been spotted around the hotel the night before, seeming "spaced out", or have known that he'd subsequently partied in the room with friends into the small hours of the morning.
Loudly announcing one's presence is a chambermaid's means of avoiding an embarrassing encounter with a naked and compromised guest, but Michael Hutchence was past caring.
What that Sydney chambermaid encountered in room 524 was the naked and dead figure of Michael Hutchence -- in his final years as famous for the soap-opera drama of his relationship with Paula Yates as for singing with INXS -- kneeling on the bedroom floor, his hands in his lap, a leather belt around his neck.
Speaking about her sister, who died of a heroin overdose in 2014, Pixie told the Guardian: “It’s beautiful that someone can live a life so short and yet make such an impact.
No, not just "what" is she doing in terms of saying something outrageous (again) - part of her modus operandi to drive traffic - but in this case, why is she fraternising with far-right extremists and Holocaust deniers down in the Mediterranean and re-sharing their content on social media? You even promised to move here if he was elected, so you and I both know this is what you want. The media that gives them the platforms they crave need to remember that it's a double edged sword.

All right-minded people are united in their condemnation for the hideous atrocities that took place on Wednesday afternoon.
Best friend Lowe, Alexa Chung and sister Fifi acted as bridesmaids, while guests including Nick Grimshaw and Clash bassist Paul Simenon were among the 150 guests.
Thomas Cohen, the widower of her late sister Peaches Geldof, was also in attendance with their two children, Phaedra and Astala. I mean, there’s no one day when it won’t be bad.” Her father married his partner of 19 years Jeanne Marine back in 2015, having proposed just a year after his daughter’s tragic death.
The belt was tied to a spring-lever on a door, photographs of Yates and various pills were scattered around the room. That Saturday morning in Sydney was still Friday night in London, when Paula Yates's friend Belinda Brewin came to tell her of Hutchence's death. He was worn down by three years of this torture." Less than three years later, Paula Yates was dead from a heroin overdose.
Paula said later her first response to the news that her lover and father of her youngest, 16-month-old daughter, Tiger, was dead was to punch Brewin in the face. She had been tortured with grief over Hutchence, and had eventually rejected her original belief that he'd left her through suicide, choosing instead to believe that he had died during an auto-erotic game.
