Celebrities continued to document their time in isolation by recording themselves performing music, reciting literature, and even chatting with former first lady Michelle Obama. Just like regular people.
Stars including Moby, Britney Spears, Ellen DeGeneres, Kevin Bacon, and Sir Patrick Stewart posted new social media videos in which they showed how they occupy themselves in the time of coronavirus. The videos range from wildly out-of-touch to modestly unassuming.
Moby recorded a quaint solo guitar performance performed during his stay at home:
Not a fancy cover song with a compelling story, just a middle aged bald guy staying home and playing guitar. pic.twitter.com/G2jHiYu4GV

Wow. It’s been beautiful and inspiring to see #IStayHomeFor grow….and I wanted to make sure to thank everyone who’s contributed to #IStayHomeFor so far, as we all continue to do what we can to #flattenthecurve and practice self-distancing during this tough time. It isn’t easy, but it’s nice to know that we are not alone and there are so many people we’re doing this for….especially those who are fighting hard to keep our services, hospitals and infrastructure going during this crazy time. So keep posting. I'm commenting along. Sending you all love and hope you are keeping safe.
Rapper Cardi B was in a relatively restrained mood, telling her Instagram followers in a new post to “stay safe” and to “remember to drink lots of hot liquids and avoid foods that will give you mucus” — though the accompanying video appears to show her freaking out a little over technical problems during a live stream:
Michael Rapaport recorded a typically profane video, this time berating parents who have let their children continue to flout government guidelines regarding social distancing and self-quarantining:
