Yungblud

Yungblud is set to host a livestreamed concert on Monday.

The 22-year-old singer has been forced to postpone the Asia leg of his tour due to coronavirus concerns, and with the virus spreading across the globe, Yungblud has decided to host his very own online concert, where fans will be able to enjoy a live performance without the risk of spreading infection.

In a statement, he said: "the world is in a very weird time at the moment. everyone doesn't know what to do or where to turn. it's like we are all trapped in a glass or perspex box whilst someone is playing a trick on us. My shows were getting cancelled left right and centre i miss the energy, i miss the connection, i miss my fans and family. We need each other more than ever right now and having the opportunity to interact with them taken away from me fully wasn't even an option for me! we're holding an online concert Monday 7am PDT earliest show of my life see you there!!! (sic)"

Yungblud - whose real name is Dominic Harrison - was due to play in South Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, the Philippines and Singapore later this month, but was forced to push back the shows amid "travel risks" following the outbreak.

He said of the cancellation: "I'm going to have to cancel this Asia tour, because we've been advised about travel risks, in terms of coronavirus.

"At first I was going to say, 'F**k it' and come, but we have been advised again to seriously not."

Lizzo

Lizzo is posting meditation videos on social media to "promote healing" following the outbreak of coronavirus.

The 31-year-old singer took to Instagram on Friday to share a 30-minute video of herself going through a "meditation and mantra" aimed at helping her followers relax and find peace, amid the widespread panic that has erupted following the spread of the flu-like virus, also known as COVID-19.

She captioned the clip: "A meditation and mantra to promote healing during this global crisis. Use at your own pace. Love you!"

Naomi Campbell

Naomi Campbell wanted to feel "protected and comfortable" when she wore a full hazmat suit during a flight from Los Angeles to New York City.

The 49-year-old model was spotted this week walking through LAX's Tom Bradley International Terminal wearing a hazmat suit, goggles, a facial mask and rubber gloves, in an attempt to make herself as safe as possible from the spread of coronavirus.

And Naomi has now said she chose such extreme safety measures because she wanted to feel "comfortable" knowing she wouldn't pick up the virus by touching any surfaces that may have been harbouring germs.

The Jonas Brothers

Jonas Brothers have cancelled their Las Vegas residency over coronavirus concerns.

The trio of brothers - comprised of Kevin, Joe, and Nick Jonas - were due to kick off their nine-date residency next month, but have been forced to axe all the shows amid growing concerns about the spread of the flu-like illness, also known as COVID-19.

In a joint statement which was posted to their respective social media accounts, the 'Sucker' hitmakers said: "Hey guys, we've been monitoring the situation and after careful consideration and growing concern for our fans, touring staff, and families' wellness we regret to announce that our April 1 - 18 Las Vegas residency at Park MGM is being cancelled. We did not make this decision lightly.

They each captioned their posts: "We love you guys and we are praying for everyone's safety and wellness. We'll see you soon."

Prince Charles

Prince Charles is postponing his spring tour to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyprus and Jordan following the coronavirus outbreak.

The 71-year-old royal was due to complete an eight-day tour of the countries next week alongside his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, but following advice from the UK government in the wake of the spread of the flu-like virus, he has indefinitely postponed the trip.

A statement from Clarence House said: "Owing to the unfolding situation with the Coronavirus pandemic, The British Government has asked Their Royal Highnesses to postpone their spring tour to Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cyprus and Jordan."

Coco Austin

Coco Austin has revealed she is breastfeeding her four-year-old daughter "for comfort" to curb her anxiety amid the COVID-19 crisis.

The 'Ice and Coco' star took to Instagram to speak about her decision to keep nursing, as she says the process is a source of comfort for her daughter, especially amid the current coronavirus crisis, which Coco described as feeling like the world is "coming to an end".

In an update on Instagram, the 40-year-old beauty wrote: "At a time when the world feels like its coming to an end.. suck up as much love as you can!

"I know the moms out there will appreciate this pic! Ive been getting alot of props in the breasfeeding community and get tons of emails from woman/moms appreciating me bringing light to the subject .. I write a baby blog about my journey with Chanel and soon I will write about what it's like to continue boob time with a 4 year old.. I get tons and tons of requests that want me to speak on it!
