When’s the last time you saw your favorite celebrity or rock star in public? Although coronavirus has been keeping us inside, most rock stars we love have spent years keeping out of the public. That’s why we’ve decided to gather together some tips for giving yourself the rock star treatment while in quarantine.
Most celebrities have holed themselves in their houses for longer than usual with the spread of COVID-19. Many other celebrities have isolated themselves after testing positive for the coronavirus.
Now more than ever, music has proven itself to be a unifier and a constructive way to pass the time. Music has helped millions of people during this pandemic, and continues to serve as a reminder of our combined creativity.
While we might be dodging something a little more dangerous than the paparazzi and crazed fans, treating ourselves right is significant. That’s why we’ve gathered a list of all the ways celebrities have given themselves the rock star treatment. Check them out so you can give yourself the rock star treatment too!
Record Some Music in Your Home Studio
All you need to make your own music is a computer, some headphones, a microphone, some speakers, and creativity. Making music during quarantine can be a new hobby, or can be the opportunity to re-spark an old passion.
Plenty of musicians and celebrities have been taking this opportunity to explore new styles or start new ventures. Musicians from all genres have taken this time to create new music, including Post Malone, Travis Scott, and more.
Do a TikTok Challenge!
If you haven’t seen a single TikTok Challenge during social distancing, it’s possible that you’ve been living under a rock. TikTok has taken control of the internet during quarantine with its many different challenges involving music and dancing.
Staying inside all day can be draining, but challenging yourself with learning a song or dance can alleviate the boredom. Make sure to share your challenges with us, and to check out Recovery Unplugged’s TikTok while you’re at it!
Make New Lyrics for Your Favorite Song
If you’re running out of ideas to pass time during quarantine, get your Weird Al on and parody a song! As Madonna’s remake of “Vogue” shows, it can be much more challenging than you’d think.
Make a Music Video Collage With Your Friends
Imagine this: you and your friends sing clips of a famous song and make a mash-up. Sound familiar?
Recently, celebrities came together to sing John Lennon’s “Imagine” in an act of solidarity during this time of social distancing. Regardless of how this cover made you feel, taking the time to create a mash-up with friends can alleviate boredom and help you feel connected to others.
Create A Playlist on Your Favorite Streaming Service
We’ve all told ourselves at some point that we would reorganize our playlists to better reflect our current tastes. It can be tiring to skip the same song every time it comes on. The good news is that most of us have all the time we could need as a result of coronavirus.
Celebrities have also hopped on this trend in an effort to promote their latest releases. Artists like Bad Bunny have even offered their followers a month of free Spotify membership to help them through the quarantine period.
Hold A Concert For Your Followers
Due to all the concert cancellations as a result of social distancing, some artists have decided to host remote concerts for their fans. Even if you only have a few followers of your own, sharing your music with others can build a sense of community that we desperately need right now.
If you have a talent, don’t be afraid to share it with others, especially now! We all need a little uplifting, and music is the perfect way to build stronger bonds in this hard time.
