Because “pandemic nostalgia” is a thing, let’s remember what life was like, RIGHT before it all went haywire and everything changed…
Just a month before the pandemic began, Shakira and Jennifer Lopez starred in the Super Bowl halftime show.
Little did we know that a few weeks later we would all be quarantined.
At the start of the pandemic, Nick Cannon only had three children…
Do you remember Charlotte Awbery? She’s the lady who went viral for singing on the subway.
It was HUGE viral before the pandemic. She went viral on February 20, 2020… and was never heard from again.
Just before the lockdown, everyone was talking about it To cheer.
King of the Tigers came out on March 20th, five days before the world shut down.
And the first season of love is blind was everywhere back then.
The Invisible Man was one of the greatest films.
So was Sonic the Hedgehog And bad boys for life
The Grammys had just happened.
And she was wearing a Dillards dress.
Speaking of couples, before the pandemic, Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green were still together.
Jennifer Lopez was still on A-Rod.
Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik had not broken up.
Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello were still one thing.
And people didn’t say “there is” in relation to anything and everything like they do now.
The 2020 Academy Awards were one of the last big events before the shutdown.
We were all on one parasite high.
And luckily, the movie took home the best movie.
Shortly before the lockdown, people were still tinkering cats jokes
Little did we know that a few weeks later that face would be the least of our problems…
People liked to talk before shutdowns hustlers Everyone was pissed that J.Lo was robbed of AT LEAST an Oscar nomination.
Another extremely strange thing before the pandemic was that just before the pandemic, SEVEN PEOPLE were running for the Democratic nomination.
Pete Buttigieg regained Iowa in early February 2020. That was just a month before the lockdown.
Remember when Mike Bloomberg had a *chance*? He dropped out of the race on March 4th… about a week before we were all stuck inside.
One of the last “big” “events” to happen in a pre-COVID world was that Mr. Peanut died and was reborn into Baby Peanut.
Just before Shelter in Place, the Pussycat Dolls reunited and delivered one of the best songs of 2020.
They were so united and happy then.
At the beginning of 2020, Jessica Simpson was constantly in the headlines with her book.
At the end of February, just before the end of the world, the Megxit was announced.
This is back before we all (against our will) found out about Prince Harry’s “Frozen Todger.”
“Social distancing” wasn’t something anyone ever said or did.
We never uttered the phrases “super-spreader” or “flattening the curve.”
Likewise, we had never discussed preferences for Moderna or Pfizer.
And no one who wasn’t a real doctor or nurse has ever used the words “N-95,” “PSA,” “variants,” or “quarantine.”
In summary, it’s been a simpler time and I only wish Charlotte Awbery is doing well. I hope she is doing well.
