Last night, one of our favorite songstresses, Bridget Kelly, had a close call, “Is this for real?” moment on Instagram. While enjoying a party during SXSW, she shared a photo of a white powdery substance being bagged up and ready to bake. The pic included the caption,”oh ok, now it’s a party!! lol #ghettogastro #turnup #whitegirl @ Public School,” which left her fans alarmed that she was giving them a real life, behind-the-scenes look at the rock star life, drugs included, at SXSW. Even celebs like Rita Ora and Estelle seemed confused while leaving comments under the photo.
Luckily, moments later, she shut the speculation of drug use down by deleting the photo and tweeting:
Does no one on my IG timeline ever bake? Confectioners sugar, ppl. It goes on crepes & zepolis
It absolutely is lol ppl are wildin!!! RT @JournalisticJoe: @theycallmeBK that had BETTER be powdered sugar lol
Well that was a close one!
In this day and age, celebs are promoting drugs use more than ever through their songs and social media. It’s also becoming the norm to scroll down your Instagram timeline, and see some of your favs either smoking some ganja or talking about popping a molly with no regard to the young followers who are easily influenced.
Since the event was put on by, Ghetto Gastro, a collective of chefs from the Bronx who were also serving up the meals that night, the white substance in the photo definitely could be powdered sugar from the kitchen, however, that was definitely a “Watch what you tweet moment.”
