Noughties pop singer Anastacia has joined the growing list of stars using self-isolation to rewrite their hit tunes with coronavirus-inspired lyrics.

Posting to Twitter yesterday, the singer – whose iconic pop song I'm Outta Love came out in 2000 – replaced the lyrics to form an ode to those running low on supplies during self-isolation as cities worldwide head into lockdown.

The 51-year-old star renamed the throwback anthem I'm Outta Dove, clarifying before launching into song that it was not a paid advertisement for the soap brand.

The genius lyrics included: "I'm Outta Dove, I can't get clean, I'm at home in quarantine / Could be 3 days, god forbid a month / And my nose can't handle me / I'm outta Dove, can't get clean, I'm at home in quarantine / I'm outta Dove".

Anastacia joins a sprinkling of celebs who have taken to social media recently to fuse their tunes with pandemic commentary.

Pop singer Jojo recently flipped the lyrics of her hit Leave (Get Out) to encourage people to stay in and practise social distancing to slow the spread of the deadly virus, hopefully "flattening the curve" around the world.

While Jojo and Anastacia's attempts at cheering up self-isolators have been praised online, some stars have missed the mark entirely.

Last week, Gal Gadot's celeb-packed rendition of John Lennon's Imagine was slammed online, with many labelling it "tone deaf" and condescending.


"We're all in this together," said the Wonder Woman star, 34, at the start of the viral video posted last Wednesday to her 36.8 million-fan Instagram page.

The three-minute clip then cuts to a montage of Gadot, Mark Ruffalo, Will Ferrell and other Hollywood elites singing the lyrics of the late Beatle star's opus, which envisions a world without strife.

But Gadot's musical morale boost rang hollow with the social media masses, who labelled the video "cringe" and "out of touch".

"I've always hated this song," scoffed one Twitter critic. "'Imagine no possessions,' sung by some of the wealthiest people in the world."

Another mocked: "Honey, look at all the rich people singing Imagine. Everything will be all right now, even though we both lost our jobs. This was so much better than money and not cringy at all."
