Britney Spears Changes Lyrics Of Famous Song To Promote Social Distancing
Britney Spears has made a slight change to the lyrics of one of her most iconic songs to promote social distancing amid the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis.
On Tuesday, the pop star, 38, shared an illustration of herself from her 1998 “…Baby One More Time” music video from illustrator Patricia Urrutia.
In the picture, the animated Spears holds up a bottle of Purell hand sanitizer next to the words “my loneliness is saving me,” instead of the song’s original lyrics, “my loneliness is killing me.”
Spears, who has been promoting social distancing to her followers for several weeks now, captioned the post “Enough said,” and further thanked all healthcare workers who are working during this period.
Earlier last month, the singer said that she would be donating supplies to three fans in need as part of the “Do Your Part Challenge” that many celebrities participated in.
In a video shared on Instagram, she said:
So our world is going through such hard times right now, and my sister just nominated me to help people, whether it’s with food, or I’m getting your child diapers, or whatever it is, DM me and I will help you out.
Britney is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, and actress. Spears’s first two studio albums; Baby One More Time (1999) and Oops! I Did It Again (2000), were global successes and made her the best-selling teenage artist of all-time.
Referred to as the “Princess of Pop”, Spears is regarded as a pop icon and is credited with influencing the revival of teen pop during the late 1990s and early 2000s.
