22 Sep – Hong Kong Cantopop star GEM Tang admitted that she still does not understand the fuss over previous photos she took inside her car.
Earlier, the singer was blasted twice online for posting a photo of herself on the wheel; once during a red light stop, and the second, which was taken a couple of weeks later, of herself in the driver's seat. She was criticised for being reckless and endangering others for using a phone while driving.
However, as reported on Mingpao News, while speaking to the media at a music gala on 21 September, GEM admitted that she still does not understand all the commotion triggered from the photos.
"What is the problem? I had my seat belt buckled on and the car was not moving," she said.
GEM also stressed that she had even asked permission from her driving instructor before taking the picture.
In regard to a second photo she took recently, GEM stressed that she has parked her car before doing so.
"If you look closely from the reflection on my shades, you can see that I have already parked the car on the roadside," she said.
