As communities around the world continue to adapt to the new norm of social distancing, once-scarce face masks are becoming a wardrobe staple. Shifting from medical grade masks to those with a reusable cloth design, celebrities and manufacturers are finally offering a more personalized, trendy take on the traditional PPE. Because, why not make a statement, right? Fortunately for fans, some of the biggest names in music are hopping on board the trend, including Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Billie Eilish, The Weeknd, Blackpink, The Rolling Stones and more. These masks are part of Universal Music’s “We’ve Got You Covered” initiative, which aims to raise money for MusiCares; which will use the funds support the music industry throughout the coronavirus pandemic. Each mask is priced at $15, and offers a signature design to match the style of each artist. Grande’s mask stays true to the theme of her “No Tears Left to Cry” track, featuring a single tear drop against a solid black design. In fact, the pop star was actually ahead of the curve — she’s offered masks as part of her merch collection in 2018. She was also spotted wearing the mask back in January 2019, after calling off her New Years Eve show due to a bad case of bronchitis.

Eilish — known for her statement style — features her “Blohsh” logo in neon green. The Weeknd, of course, chose to feature his signature ‘XO’ logo. For anyone looking for a more ‘flashy’ option, designer Michael Ngo (who is known for styling Ariana Grande and Jennifer Lopez for performances) has launched his own collection of charitable face masks. Whether you’re into crystallized flair or punk-rock chic, Ngo has the mask for you. Although a pricier option, ranging from $45 to $500 a mask, 100% of the proceeds benefit the Los Angeles Food Bank which provides support to low-income communities. Other notable designers creating non-medical grade, washable masks include Michael Costello, Christian Siriano and Brandon Maxwell. Sorry Future, for right the time being, the theme is definitely “Mask On”.[video_embed id='1945859']BEFORE YOU GO: Taylor Swift and Scooter Braun are at it again.[/video_embed]
