Kelly Clarkson Is Unrecognizable In Isolation

While everyone hunkers down at home, social media seems to be the best way to engage with the world. Since no one has anywhere to go, who cares about hair, makeup and the glam life of a world before lockdown? In a refreshing turn of events, it seems like people on social media are fine with documenting the more casual side of things too.

Rather than using Instagram as a place to share a highly curated photo of a perfect life (that doesn't actually exist), it seems like people — celebrities included — are happy posting their makeup-free faces, messy hair, and assortment of sweatpants. It's awesome and our girl, Kelly Clarkson, is joining in.

Clarkson has been really active during lockdown. She released a new song and spoke about it virtually on the Today show. She's been busy with The Kelly Clarkson Show as well as serenading fans through "Kellyoke," plus she's the quarantine queen of social media. In a recent video, Clarkson shared the cutest video of herself in the bathroom and she doesn't look like the glamorous judge we're so used to seeing on The Voice. But you know what? It's even better. Check it out.

Kelly Clarkson asks fans to be kind to people on the internet

Kelly Clarkson shared the cutest quarantine video with her 4.9 million followers on Instagram of herself in her bathroom, talking about life. Then, to honor Kenny Rogers, she performed a cover of his song, "Sweet Music Man," saying it was her favorite of all of his songs. See for yourself below.

After that, Clarkson shared how Amazon was a life-saver during quarantine because her 3-year-old son had grown out of his clothes. But then she went off on a slight tangent, after being concerned that people might call her out on talking about ordering clothes during the coronavirus. She said, "We really should just all be kind. Whether it's a person in the limelight or a person at home, people doing videos are just trying to make people happy and give you a distraction so maybe ease up on humans for right now."

She makes a fair point and fans echoed her positive sentiment. Someone commented: "You are delightful!" Someone else wrote: "Great tribute sweetheart! Isn't it liberating to show the world the natural you, talent taking front and center. Beautiful Kelly!"

But that's not the only musical thing Clarkson has done during lockdown! 

Kelly Clarkson keeps serenading fans

Kelly Clarkson is getting active on all of her social media platforms to continue entertaining fans during lockdown. On April 30, 2020, she jumped on YouTube to share her latest "Kellyoke" song on The Kelly Clarkson Show. Clarkson chose Madonna's "Like a Prayer" and it's absolutely gorgeous!

While Clarkson sang from her Montana ranch, her bandmates joined in virtually and the video features the band rocking out in their homes or backyards. Of course, fans were all about it and praised America's original Idol for her energy and stamina during lockdown. Someone wrote: "She's never been bored during this pandemic quarantine while me being lazy to be productive. Give me your energy, Kelly!"

Another fan wrote: "Doesn't surprise me anymore :D She can sing anything!!!! Best vocalist in the last 2 decades!!!!" So true!

Someone else wrote: "She is such a great natural singer... she doesn't have to add anything."

Natural seems to be the theme for Clarkson during the coronavirus. She doesn't need any enhancements and that goes for both makeup and her voice!

Kelly Clarkson dares people to choose love

Kelly Clarkson has been extra active during the lockdown. Like, wow! On April 16, 2020, the singer released her newest song, "I Dare You." Her message throughout lockdown has been consistently dedicated to spreading love and compassion and her newest song is no different.

On the Today show, Clarkson virtually spoke about the project. She said: "The message was perfect. I thought it was kind of globally connecting, and I wanted to do that musically."

She added: "We were going to shelve it for a minute, but it was planned to come out today and I thought, maybe people need this message today."

The message of "I Dare You" is to choose love. "It's basically like, I dare you to love instead of fear, instead of hate," Clarkson said on the Today show.

Clarkson shared that when she gets into a funk, she talks it out. She said she'll get on the phone with her assistant or her mom and talk things out until she feels better. Clearly that helps because she's able to transmit such an uplifting message in her newest song as well as in her positive presence on social media.
