The 21 Dumbest Things Celebrities Did At The Beginning Of The Pandemic That Are Honestly Funny To Look Back On Now

The pandemic really made celebrities do some crazy things.

1. Vanessa Hudgens made a surreal video where she asked why the coronavirus was such a big deal.

"Terrible, but like inevitable. Maybe I shouldn't be doing this right now haha"

2. Sia posted this drawing that means...literally I have no idea what she was going for here.

The word 'VIRUS' with the V I R crossed out leaving the word 'US'

Huh lol?

Which then turned into this:

3. Bette Midler saluted housekeepers because it appears she has never cooked or cleaned before.

I never knew my appliances as well as I’m starting to know them. So grateful to #Kenmore and #Maytag. This is no joke. I salute housekeepers around the globe, doing your best to keep your families well, safe and alive.

4. Gal Gadot and a bunch of very rich people sang "Imagine" from their mansions and vacation homes.

I still can't believe she got so many people to agree to do it.

5. Madonna called the coronavirus the "great equalizer" from a bathtub sprinkled with rose petals.

The great equalizer indeed.

7. Lionel Richie said he wants to make a new "We Are the World" for COVID-19 because that's exactly what the world needed at the time.

I am both low-key creeped out and insanely jealous at the same time.
