The singer took to Twitter to advise on how to social distance from people to avoid getting the virus.
She wrote the caption “I don’t make the rules” in reference to her hit single ‘New Rules’ before adding: “Don’t show up. Don’t come out. Don’t start caring about me now. Walk away. You know how,” and, “Don’t start caring about me now.”

The singer is among a host of artists who are trying to cheer fans up during the crisis with the latest gestures coming from Florence Welch who posted a collective poem about life in quarantine today (March 20) and The Big Moon, who are offering fans online guitar lessons.
Earlier this week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged the UK to avoid venues, pubs, clubs, restaurants and other forms of “unnecessary contact” as the government attempts to stretch out the peak of the crisis, before then pledging millions in grants and loans to secure these spaces’ future. A campaign has also been launched for fans to buy a “digital pint” to support independent venues.
Many artists have since taken online to host virtual gigs to music fans while much of the world is in quarantine or self-isolation.
