It’s a tough time for the Hollywood celebrity. With a national shutdown and no more gigs, the celebrity has turned to the ruling class to promote public service messages like “stay positive,” “we’re all in this together”, “Stay The F Home”, “Wash Your Hands”. This has become a PR disaster for most and if not treated carefully, their careers won’t recover.

Jennifer Lopez posted a video of her family sheltering in the backyard of Alex Rodriguez’s vast Miami compound, the public snapped.“We all hate you,” was one representative response.

Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee said to his fans in a tweet – ‘Stay Inside’: ‘I Got Some Big Stadium S**t To Do In June’. The fans replied to Tommy with “Stay The F Home, the tour isn’t happening.

Pharrell Williams asked his followers to donate to aid frontline responders. The public told him to empty his own deep pockets.

“Ellen DeGeneres lounged on her sofa, video-chatting with famous friends. Comedian Kevin T. Porter solicited stories from service workers who had experienced run-ins with DeGeneres, whom he called “notoriously one of the meanest people alive.”

David Geffen deleted his Instagram after being slammed for a post about how he’s self-isolating on his $590 million superyacht.

The list goes on and on. Check out The New York Times ‘Celebrity Culture Is Burning.’

Sam Smith is making some changes in light of the pandemic. Smith said that the upcoming album will no longer be called “To Die For” and will be delayed in release. It makes sense, “To Die For” does seem a bit out-of-touch with the current situation.

“I have done a lot of thinking the last few weeks and I feel that the title of my album and imminent release doesn’t feel right,” the announcement read. “So I have come to the decision to continue working on the album and make some important changes and additions.”

You have to give Coldplay props after the band put their plans on hold to tour over the environmental impact of their concerts. They’re one of the few acts that walk the walk, not talks the talk. We need more of them.

After talking to several managers and artists we have a new global issue that’s on the level or even more problematic than climate change. It’s the cov19 pandemics and the next pandemic. What does this mean for the future touring industry? It means a lot. It means stadium tours could be a thing of past.

Many managers and artists agree that we have a ‘moral responsibility’ and a role to play in preventing the next pandemic while flattening the curve of the present COV19 pandemic. That could mean no more huge stadium tours. No more artist meet and greets. Artists performing in smaller and intimate outside sheds could be the answer. In the event of the public health crisis, more artists are focusing on live streaming their shows.

There are few big stadium tours that are set to kick off in summer that most likely won’t happen. In fact, no way it’s going to happen. The Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe Stadium tour is set to kick off June while The Hella Mega Tour that features Green Day, Fall Out Boy, and Weezer begins in May.

We are all in this together and we’ll all figure this out.
