Britney Spears celebrated World Health Day by sharing an illustration of her iconic "...Baby One More Time" schoolgirl look, while simultaneously promoting social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
On Tuesday (April 7), the pop titan, 38, took to Instagram to share a graphic of herself in the famed video outfit, holding a bottle of Purell hand sanitizer. "My loneliness is saving me" appears next to the animated version of Spears, with the original "killing me" line crossed out as a nod to the #StayHome initiative. "Enough said," she captioned the illustration, which was designed by artist Patricia Urrutia. "Thank you to all of the healthcare workers tirelessly working to keep us safe during this time !!!! #WorldHealthDay."
Say what you want about Spears' Instagram account, but the pop titan has been very vocal about sharing positivity amid the pandemic. Last week, the entertainer shared a post in honor of all the essential workers doing their part, including grocery store clerks, medical professionals, restaurant workers, truck drivers, warehouse and sanitation workers, farmers and generous neighbors. Additionally, she helped three fans in need as part of the "Do Your part Challenge," which saw stars donate financial assistance during the global crisis.
