Britney Spears Has Proposed a Social Distancing Lyric Change to One of Her Biggest Hits
We can all learn a thing or two from classic Britney Spears (namely, the best way to convince your boyfriend to coordinate with you in head-to-toe denim). However, the iconography of her previous notwithstanding, modern-day Brit wants to issue a timely lyric change to one of her older hits.
While celebrating World Health Day on Tuesday, Spears shared an example by Patricia Urrutia of herself in her”… Baby One More Time” music video seems to hold a bottle of Purell, the lyrics”My loneliness is killing me” revised to read”My loneliness is saving me!”
“Enough said,” Spears’s caption read, “and thank you to all the healthcare workers tirelessly working to keep us safe at this time!!!! #WorldHealthDay #ThanksHealthHeroes.”
Illustrated Britney speaks the truth — social distancing is key to saving yourself (and others!) from contracting and continuing to spread coronavirus (COVID-19).
Along with saving her, social distancing has also given Spears an opportunity to experiment with”early Victorian style.”
