Kelsea Ballerini is basically doing what you are – being stuck at home during coronavirus and slowly working her way through any available food. The 26-year-old country singer is, however, tackling an unusual task – promoting a newly-released album amid a global pandemic isn’t exactly easy. “Kelsea” was due to see the blonde traveling for 21 days straight, but COVID-19 now sees the Tennessee native behind closed doors and social distancing.
Kelsea managed to weave her new music into her latest Instagram video, though, also sharing a sizzling peak into how she looks while snacking on cookie dough in tiny shorts.
Kelsea’s video (seen below) showed her looking relaxed and very much in a “home” wardrobe. The star was planted on her bed and tucking into a container of cookie dough, also using a spoon, with the camera taking in Kelsea’s super-long and toned legs as she wore a minuscule pair of PJ shorts in red plaid.
Kelsea also rocked a simple t-shirt as she lay on her front snacking, with the singer then asking Alexa to “play” her new album as she rolled around and started jamming out to the beat while lying on her back.
“Alexa and I just having an overshare party for two. An entire quarantine mood. @amazonmusic,” the star captioned her video.
Kelsea’s 2 million Instagram followers seem to have spotted the update. The video racked up over 150,000 views overnight, with the comments section seeing many fans probe the beauty over her snack – mentions of the great music were, however, made.
“Love your album BUT what are you eating!?!?! I need it!” one fan wrote.
Kelsea personally replied: “It’s @nobaked cookie dough.”
The minute the reply had dropped, more cookie dough comments came in.
“IS THAT NO BAKED IN NASHVILLE?” one fan asked.
Meanwhile, others simply vibed with the singer amid their own quarantine: “This made quarantine A LOT better,” one user wrote.
Kelsea’s third studio album has drawn attention, even bringing a full-blown profile of the star by Rolling Stone. The magazine noted the timing of the release, with it quoting Kelsea on both her music and COVID-19 as it called the release an “ideal” quarantine companion.
“I’m not going to lie, I had a few days of just being flat disappointed and pacing my floors trying to find a way around something there is no way around. However, the more I zoom out, the more I realize that this is a time where people want and need music more than ever,” Kelsea said.
Kelsea continued on the pandemic now seeing the U.S. death toll overtake that of both China and Italy.
“I’m finding a lot of peace in putting some music into the world right now, especially music that talks about finding the value in ‘home’ and friends,” she said, concluding:
“We need to find comfort in both of those things through this strange, uneasy time.”
Kelsea isn’t the only singer promoting new ways to explore life amid the pandemic. “Cry Pretty” singer Carrie Underwood has been encouraging fans to use the home time to get into shape. Oh, and making tortilla pizzas.
