This year is proving to be one for the books and unlike any other type of national crises, this is affecting everyone. Everything is closed. There’s no restaurants, clubs, etc. to go to and if you think you’re having a party at your house, the police is guaranteed to be there and you just might have a drone fly around your house to make sure you don’t have any ideas. And to make matters worse, with an already tough election year here and looming recession, you can’t even blow some steam and enjoy a concert.
Already today, protests have started in Michigan demanding their state’s economy be opened back up now, so one would think that things should be back to normal at least somewhere in the near future, right? Well experts interviewed by New York Magazine have said not so fast. Bioethicist Zeke Emanuel, Vice provost for global initiatives and director of the Healthcare Transformation Institute at the University of Pennsylvania said “Larger gatherings — conferences, concerts, sporting events — when people say they’re going to reschedule this conference or graduation event for October 2020, I have no idea how they think that’s a plausible possibility. I think those things will be the last to return. Realistically we’re talking fall 2021 at the earliest.”
But don’t fret. All is not lost. This is why people like Tory Lanez has been doing shows interviewing his friends in the industry on Instagram. IHeartRadio canceled their annual award show but opted for an at home concert hosted by Elton John and if you’ve got a few coins you can Facetime Blac Chyna for $900. So the economic climate has definitely changed and we’re going to have to deal with getting our entertainment at home. The only problem is production on everything is shutdown so we suggest you start watching some channels you’re not used to until this is over and to the celebs filming from home, clean those houses up. We’re judging you. 🙂
