Moviegoing in the United States slowed dramatically over the weekend amid the coronavirus pandemic, resulting in box office revenue falling to a 20-year low. The revenue coming in was around $56 million. The last time ticket sales were that low in North America was a weekend in September 2000. Even the first time weekends after 9/11 were higher. Disney and Pixar’s animated film Onward stayed at No. 1 in its second weekend. Some movie theaters are operating at reduced capacity or are closing their doors for the next two weeks to try and help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Lady Gaga would love to be spending time with her parents and grandparents, especially with how rapidly the coronavirus pandemic is spreading, but that’s exactly why she won’t be making plans to visit with them anytime soon. Gaga posted some thoughts on COVID-19 and what she’s learned in her conversations with some healthcare professionals about it on Instagram this past weekend. She said it’s not the easiest for everyone right now but the kindest/healthiest thing we can do is self-quarantine and not hang out with people over 65 and in large groups. I wish I could see my parents and grandmas right now but it’s much safer to not so I don’t get them sick in case I have it. I love you world, we’ll all get through this.

So I talked to some doctors and scientists. It’s not the easiest for everyone right now but the kindest/healthiest thing we can do is self-quarantine and not hang out with people over 65 and in large groups. I wish I could see my parents and grandmas right now but it’s much safer to not so I don’t get them sick in case I have it. I’m hanging at home with my dogs. I love you world, we’ll all get through this. Trust me, I talked to God —she said we’re gonna be ok.
More show cancellations are rolling in. They certainly didn’t want to but both Kelly Clarkson and The Jonas Brothers were forced to cancel their upcoming Las Vegas residencies. Best advised to not be together in large gatherings, both artists knew it was the best decision for everyone’s health and safety. Kelly is now aiming to reschedule a residency for July while it is still undecided if the brothers will make a return.
