"I don’t know if everybody is penned up and just needing the release, but I wish that would definitely go away. I want a better new normal."

"I have not secluded myself. I’m way too much of a people person. The thing that is the hardest is I can’t hug anymore. That hurts worse than anything. I can’t shake hands. Daddy always told us, ‘You look them in the eye, and you shake their hands,’ so that’s two things that are very foreign to me, but it’s for their safety as much as it is for mine."
The singer continued,
"That’s why I wear a mask no matter where I go; if I do go out, I wear a mask. I stay away from people as much as I can. It’s funny. They still want pictures, and they want to hug. I just have to say, ‘Guys, we just got to keep our distance,’ but it’s for their good. I’m not surely a snob about it at all, and I never want to hurt anybody’s feelings."
