Britney Spears has told fans to send her messages on Instagram if they need supportive words during the coronavirus pandemic.

The pop star shared a video message on the social networking site, revealing she was nominated by her younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears to take part in the Do Your Part Challenge, which encourages people to help others who are also self-isolating amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

“So our world is going through such hard times right now, and my sister just nominated me to help people,” the Toxic hitmaker said. “Whether it’s with food or I’m getting your child diapers, or whatever it is, DM (direct message) me and I will help you out.”

Several stars have taken to social media to offer their support, with Nick Jonas and his wife Priyanka Chopra also spreading some love to their Instagram fans.

“Hi everyone, I know it’s an unsure time for all of us, but hope you’re doing OK, we’re sending you positive vibes,” Nick said, with Priyanka adding: “And let’s just take care of each other and I hope everyone is safe out there.”

Ariana Grande is also helping to support charities helping hard hit small businesses, people, and families get through the coronavirus pandemic, with Kanye West pledging donations to charities in his hometowns of Los Angeles and Chicago.

Stars including Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, Kristen Bell, and Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos have also donated to coronavirus relief efforts.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has seen more than 328,000 cases of the virus registered worldwide, resulting in a death toll of over 14,300, since it began in December (2019).
