As Hollywood hated production on nearly every project, the internet has been flooded with celebrities showing on social media how they are passing time while being self-quarantined. While there are no red carpets or paparazzi to keep a celebrity’s name in the headlines, a wide range of famous people have posted everything from performances to chores on social media.
Breitbart reported further on the #StayHome videos.
Entertainment luminaries including Michael Stipe, Steve Martin, Hugh Jackman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Trevor Noah, Naomi Watts, and Richard E. Grant have posted videos in which they perform for the camera, reveal their stay-at-home activities, and provide their personal takes on the global outbreak.
The celebrity stay-at-home video is part public service announcement, part virtue signal. But as Breitbart’s John Nolte noted, the stars could be spending their time more productively: “Why don’t they put on protective gear and spend their days serving the countless homeless who have been camped in squalor right outside their front doors for years?”
The multi-platform entertainer Lin-Manuel sang a soothing version of “Everything’s Alright” from Jesus Christ Superstar.
Here’s “Everything’s Alright” from Jesus Christ Superstar.
