Kelsea Ballerini just keeps delivering that little ray of sunshine. The 26-year-old country singer has proven immensely uplifting as millions face uncertain times – three our of four Americans are currently on lock-down amid the coronavirus pandemic.
COVID-19 has already seen the “homecoming queen?” singer update her Instagram from her bed and wearing McDonald’s socks. The weekend also brought the blonde beauty in a sunbathing moment on the roof of her Jeep as she reminded her 2 million followers that getting outside “really helps” – if you can do it.
Kelsea’s Monday evening photo showed her in selfie mode and fresh out the shower. The Tennessee native had shot herself close up while delivering fresh-faced beauty – a simple and fluffy white bathrobe formed the wardrobe as the singer-songwriter posed with zero makeup and her blonde locks seen soaking-wet.
A piercing gaze and slight smile came accompanied by a caption:
“Today I stopped resisting. stopped making myself as busy as possible (from home), creating work, dreaming about when this is all over. I leaned in, slept late, looked at memes and tik toks for farrrr too long and laughed a lot, and now I’m drinking wine with a fresh face feeling a little peace knowing that it’s ok to have days like this during this tough, strange season,” she began.
Kelsea continued by saying that quarantine shouldn’t be forcing people into a state where they’re obligated to feel “productive.”
“It’s ok to chill. breathe. stop running circles around the apartment just to say I did something “productive”. I’m off to put a hole in a bottle now. sending you love. ?,” she concluded.
With over 82,000 likes left overnight, the update proved a hit, also bringing in a ton of comments.
“Thank you girl for the reminder,” one user wrote.
“Same girl. Sometimes it’s smart to just take a breather and remind yourself that this is just a phase ?,” another added.
Kelsea appears to have tried her best amid the global pandemic. The updates have stayed positive, but one user called the singer out.
“Can I be honest with you, this post of yours is freaking. I feel like since day one of this outbreak you’ve only posted videos dancing around with your face covered up which felt like you were mocking the state of the world, posting videos doing goofy things around the house which again felt like you were laughing at the situation,” the fan wrote.
The user continued to suggest Kelsea hadn’t “taken the time” to consider the “gravity” of the situation.
Kelsea did not ignore the comment.
A reply from Kelsea gaining over 150 likes read:
“I totally hear and respect this. I guess I just look at my job in all of this to spread some giggles and music in it all. The heaviness, absolute real weight of information, and devastating stories are everywhere.”
She continued: “I read them and feel helpless and heartbroken. Promise I’m informed. Promise I’m sad, so so sad. Promise I’m staying TF home and trying to spread the importance of that. just trying to find my own sense of mental health in this all, and share some light along the way. Hope you’re well. ?”
COVID-19 has seen the singer release her third studio album, “Kelsea.” Rolling Stone called it the “ideal” companion for social distancing.
