Selena Gomez Shares Photo of ‘Makeshift Studio’ While in Self-Isolation

Selena Gomez is making the most of her time in self-isolation.

On Saturday (May 2), the 27-year-old pop star shared a photo of herself sitting next to a “makeshift studio” to use for recording while stuck at home amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Makeshift studio so I can work from home,” the singer captioned the snapshot on Instagram.

Earlier in the week, Gomez hosted a livestream with fans over social media to chat about life in quarantine and the possibility of even more new music coming down the pipeline.

“As far as new music, I don’t know,” the pop star said slyly during the Instagram Live before silently mouthing the word “yes” while nodding her head.

New music would arrive on the heels of recently released deluxe edition of her third album, Rare. The new set features the singer’s newest single “Boyfriend,” along with other news songs “Souvenir” and “She.”

Check out Gomez’s mini home recording studio in the photo below.

Here’s How Celebs Are Helping Out During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Since the coronavirus outbreak, cities around the country have urged self-isolation in order to help flatten the curve and reduce transmission, resulting in school shutdowns, layoffs, and a plummeting stock market. Now, celebrities are stepping up to help.

In the entertainment industry, musicians have postponed and canceled tours, while events such as awards shows and festivals have also been put on hold. Movie and television sets have also shut down production while Americans hunker down.

With the situation and economy looking more dire with each passing day, celebrities are offering what help they can. Some musicians are sharing their talents, providing livestreams of  performances to keep fans entertained. Others are donating not only their time, but their tremendous resources, to provide aid to the less fortunate in their communities and around the world.

Here’s a look at the stars who are giving back during the crisis.

Duff McKagan

The Guns N’ Roses bassist and his wife, Susan, donated 1,000 Chrome Hearts masks to UW Medicine’s staff who work in the childcare center to help ensure that they can remain safe while traveling between work and home. “We were elated that we were part of this pilot program for the childcare center,” the rocker told Seattle’s Q13 News. “You think of all the tendrils of people that need masks — not just at the hospital — but they gotta go to the grocery store, they have people take care of their kids.” The pair plan to continue to donate masks.

Ariana Grande shared her roundup of organizations that she has been supporting during this time period, including The Bail Project, Fund for Families, The Mental Health Fund and more.

Shakira donated ventilators as well as thousands of N95 masks for health care workers in Barranquilla, Colombia, and her hometown mayor took to social media to thank their native pop star.  “One of the most beloved Barranquilleras in the world is @shakira, and she is also one of the people who most love Barranquilla,” Jaime Pumarejo wrote in the post below, translated to English. “Huge thank you for your contribution of thousands of N95 masks for our health care workers, and ventilators that will save lives.”

Eminem

The rapper is helping out in several ways. He announced in an April 29 tweet that he is donating an “extra pair” of his rare Eminem X Carhartt Air Jordans to benefit the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund. A ticket for a chance to win the shoes will cost you $10, and can be purchased here. According to the Detroit Free Press, there are only 10 pairs of these sneakers in existence, and they’re worth about $20,000 each.

Earlier in April, the artist donated cups of his “Mom’s Spaghetti” to Detroit-area healthcare workers. He plans to continue to do so for the next few weeks, his camp told Billboard.

Ice Cube

The “Check Yo Self” rapper turned his famous lyrics from 1993 “Check Yo Self Before You Wreck Yo Self” into a custom T-shirt slogan that reminds people to do their part in protecting one another from COVID-19. Proceeds from T-shirt sales will benefit underfinanced hospitals and nurses in America’s inner cities and rural areas, including Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital & ER in his Los Angeles hometown. “As a global community, we all need to come together to fight against this coronavirus. Every citizen needs to step up,” said Ice Cube in a press statement. “Hopefully people can buy the shirts, and help us get supplies directly into the hands of the frontline healthcare workers that need it the most. We all need to do our part in helping the essential workers. We hope the funds from this program can help.”

And I will be continuing the fight to help you get the support and resources you need.”

View this post on Instagram

Every single day I am in awe of the medical workers on the frontlines. Their determination, selflessness and empathy is the single greatest example of our capacity to love and survive as humans. I am beyond privileged to be self isolating in my home, without the fear and obligation of essential work employment. Without a sick family member to care for. A child to feed. A financial crisis to navigate. So I tried to find a real way to make a difference. I have acquired and purchased 100,000 FDA certified 3 ply masks (with the help of Orange International Inc who sourced the masks for me from a factory in Guangzhou, China) These masks will be distributed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Providence Saint Joseph, LAC+USC Medical Center, and Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital; for the medical professionals and non medical hospital staff who are working to put a stop to this pandemic and help millions of strangers they will never meet. Please continue to stay home, if you can. If you are on the frontlines, my heart is with you. And I will be continuing the fight to help you get the support and resources you need. I am eager to redirect you to @givedirectly – A non-profit that allows you a way to give direct cash payments to vulnerable households in at risk communities, most of whom are single mothers. I will be making a sizeable donation, and encourage you to help in any way that you can. Special thanks to @anthonytomasli and the Li family, @jasonaron, PS Business Management, @fedex, and all the contacts at the hospitals who made this possible.

50 Cent Hilariously Reacts to Street Murals Portraying Him as Taylor Swift, Donald Trump & More

50 Cent has unwillingly become the muse for an Australian street artist who has reimagined the hip-hop mogul in outdoor murals as Taylor Swift, Donald Trump, Post Malone and others.

In recent weeks, murals of 50 Cent’s morphed face have been popping up on random buildings in Australia. The artwork is attributed to anonymous Melbourne-based graffitist Lushsux, who has drawn comparisons to Banksy.

One painting, titled “The 45 Fif President,” depicts 50 Cent as President Trump. Another piece, named “Swifty Cent…Smash or Pass,” portrays the rapper as pop star Swift.

It’s unclear whether 50 Cent is in on the joke, but the rapper and actor’s reactions to the murals have been priceless. On Sunday (May 3), Fiddy took to Instagram to share his thoughts on a recent Lushsux piece that depicts him as Vice President Mike Pence.

“This f—ing guy won’t stop, SMH I guess i’m not wearing a mask because i’m tested frequently,” 50 Cent captioned his post, hashtagging his cognac brand.

Earlier in the week, 50 Cent again took to social media to comment on Lushsux’s comical portrayal of him as Swift.

“Swifty cent i’d like to hit this MF right in the back of his head while he doing this s–t,” the rapper posted on Instagram, again hashtagging his cognac brand.

It seems like Lushsux’s 50 Cent mural rampage won’t be stopping anytime soon. Last week, the artist wrote on Instagram that he “might turn 50 week into 50 month and turn this war on 50 into some iraq type quagmire.”

Billboard has reached out to Lushsux for comment.

50 Cent isn’t the only celebrity in Lushsux’s street mural portfolio. The anonymous artist has also created mash-ups of Eminem and Jim Carey, Steve Buscemi and Billie Eilish, Kim Kardashian and Kim Jong-un, and many more.

See 50 Cent’s reaction to his mash-up murals below.

Miranda Lambert Is Hitting the Road … While Staying Socially Distanced

Who says your home has to be stuck in one location? Miranda Lambert is going to do some traveling while still maintaining social distancing during the global coronavirus pandemic, and it’s thanks to her new purchase.

The country star revealed on Instagram Sunday (May 3), that she’s added to her fleet of trailers and will be taking her new addition — the aptly named 2020 Airstream Globetrotter she’s calling “The Sheriff” — on the road.

“After spending these last few months at home ( a much needed break and time to next [heart emoji]) I realized something. Just because I can’t travel and play shows doesn’t mean I can’t travel and make music,” she captioned a series of photos of her sleek new mini home. “Until I get back on Elvira and tour, I’ll be pulling this rig all over the country. I know that seeing the world through the windshield again will bring creative vibes.”

In the post, Lambert includes a video tour of her Airstream, which the vintage trailer collector shares is her “very first” new one. The interior features sleek surfaces, a bedroom in the back, mini kitchen and “a real shower; can’t even believe it!” exclaims the singer.

In early April, the “It All Comes Out in the Wash” singer announced that she was postponing the spring dates of her “Wildcard” tour until October. “It’s never fun to move shows, but it’s the right thing to do for now,” she shared on Instagram at the time. “We’re gonna come out of this fired up and more ready than ever to bring it.”

Like Lambert, many artists have canceled or postponed their upcoming shows in order to shelter in place to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus. Instead, to stay in touch with fans and raise money to help COVID-19 relief efforts, musicians around the world have started livestreaming performances from home.

Lil Nas X Shares Nude Photos of Himself Posing in a Hot Tub: See the Pics

Lil Nas X is baring it all for his fans.

The 21-year-old “Old Town Road” artist took to social media Saturday (May 2) to share a series of nude photos of himself posing in a hot tub. The mini photo shoot finds the rapper in a variety of poses, ranging from muscle flexing to a seductive look over his shoulder.

“No homo,” Lil Nas X, who came out as gay last year, jokingly captioned the Instagram post.

In early April, Lil Nas X celebrated his 21st birthday in self-quarantine with a comical video of himself blowing out a candle on a lone piece of bread. Later in the day, he shared another clip of himself partying hard with his Sesame Street Elmo doll.

The two-time Grammy winner’s socially distanced birthday arrived just days after the 1-year anniversary of the “Old Town Road” remix, his Billy Ray Cyrus-assisted breakout hit that went on to shatter the long-standing record for most weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 jointly held by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day” and Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” (featuring Justin Bieber).

The account depicts the lavish lifestyle the dog enjoys, including being on set for (and crashing) the singer’s photo shoots, getting dolled up in stylish threads, meeting the rich and famous, and more.

“He was a gift … and he’s just been my little blessing ever since!” she gushed in a 2020 interview with GQ. “I’m just a proud mother. I literally take 4oe everywhere. There’s not a place that you will see me without 4oe, and everybody knows that.”
