THEY say that fame and power can quickly go to someone’s head, a sentiment that rang true sometime last week when members of the media fraternity were forced to wait, while the demands of a certain counsellor were being met. Those in the know allege that the politician was due to address the media, however refused to do so until staffers had located a rostrum from which said politician could address them from. The attendees are said to have been forced to wait for over half an hour after the address was initially scheduled to start so that the rostrum could be located. As if to add insult to injury, tittle-tattlers claim that the dais was not even used because there was no room for it and it frankly looked awkward for the setting. Talk about being a diva!
Insult to injury
TALKING about adding insult to injury, the grapevine has it that a certain roundsman who was fingered in the unlawful liquidation of his spouse, held a jovial gathering, perhaps predicting his exoneration. The copper who was briefly incarcerated is said to have made it a point to inform attendees that the gathering was for his release and is said to not have spared any expenses for the celebration. Unfortunately, for those looking in from the outside it is indication that he cannot be bothered about the severity of his crime or how it affects those who he is accused of robbing a loved one from. One can only hope that justice prevails in this matter.
Livin’ la vida loca
THERE are those celebrities who put on a façade so they can be seen as being cool, and there are those ones who actually live out the façade, no matter how detrimental to their lives or careers. The grapevine has it that last Friday; a certain musician was spotted at a local drinking hole, getting high on more than life. The musician, who many have not been able to place until now as being a good or bad role model as they often keep to themselves, chose a side in grand fashion as they puffed away on an illegal and intoxicating substance. Then the musician is said to have started making a spectacle of themselves, but because most people at the watering hole were intoxicated, they assumed the musician merely had one too many glasses of wine. It’s a good thing no young, impressionable fans were present.
But who is to say, this is all just tittle-tattle from the grapevine…
