The Bonang DRUMa!
I feel like we have exhausted this topic on Twitter. Bonang is fuming about Drum and how they are selling this cover as if they interviewed her EXCLUSIVELY. At first I didn’t get it but after talking to a journo friend, I sorta get it.
Bonang is mad because if you look at this cover, you are led to believe the she directly spoke to them and told them “I didn’t have an abortion, I’m not a drug addict, He’s tryint to destroying me”, which are all things that were relayed to the magazine by her publicist and lawyer.
In terms of them using a picture of her, well, we don’t see Sunday Sun or any tabloid asking anyone for permission to use their picture on a covers… It seems Bonang’s rant was more to distract us from what’s really in the article and to some extent, it worked.
In addressing that:
Whether or not she had an abortion is personal and she is entitled to choose. I”m sure there are people at Drum and all over the world who have also had abortions. Abortion isn’t illegal here and judging by those medical records/statements contained in the article, it was NOT a backstreet one, she was still within the allowed time frame so there is no crime here.
You know whenever there is gossip about Bonang, talk of this tape comes up. Some say it’s a sex tape on a roof with Da Les, some say it’s a tape of her and whoever else taking drugs, you get different stories, depending on who you are talking to and recently the stories running around were that Euphonik is in possession of tha tape and that’s why Bonang wasn’t saying anything. I just think if this tape existed it would have been out a long time ago so I don’t think it’s one of those urban myths. Give us a link so we know it’s real or shut up… there is no tape!
Anyway, my thoughts on the DRUMa thing: They were hella shady for putting those quotes up there and can Bonang’s lawyer stop giving them statements and sue them instead… As for the actual story in the magazine, it’s gossip like any of their other stories so let’s not get our panties wet just coz they are dishing dirt on our favourite star. They wrote about Brenda, they wrote about Lebo, they will most definitely write about Bonang. Comes with fame so our lady must just deal with this like she’s dealt with all the past DRUMa in her life.
Hope the rumours I’m hearing about YFM trouble are not true. One problem at a time please man.
Would love to hear your thoughts of course.
