Victoria F’s Ex Chase Rice Just Held A PACKED Concert In The Middle Of A Pandemic, And It Was Not For The Right Reasons

His "The Bachelor" drama doesn't hold a candle to this mess.

If you're a fan of "The Bachelor," there's no way you've forgotten Chase Rice — the country artist who surprised Pilot Pete by having dated one-on-one concert attendee, Victoria F. Now, Rice is back to making headlines, and this time it's actually serious.

The singer held an outdoor concert over the weekend, and the video he posted to his Instagram story makes it clear that COVID-19 precautions were NOT in effect during the show.

The footage shows a large, packed crowd of fans standing shoulder to shoulder with no signs of masks or social distancing. According to the venue, they reduced their maximum capacity from 10,000 to 4,000, and less than 1,000 people were in attendance at Rice's Saturday night show. Still, they were reportedly "unable to further enforce the physical distancing recommended in the signage posted across the property" and are looking into "alternative scenarios" to prevent this from happening at future shows that they currently have booked for this summer.

Fellow country star Kelsea Ballerini took to Twitter to express her disappointment in Chase Rice's decision, calling him "selfish enough to put people's health at risk."

Unsurprisingly, Rice has expressed his dislike for quarantining and other COVID-19 precautions in the past, posting an original song to his YouTube channel called "Dear Corona" back in mid-March. The song, through which Rice speaks directly to the coronavirus, includes the lyrics: "We're gonna show up, hold our drinks high, sing the songs 'bout trucks and beer. You're gonna be met with a big f**** you 'cause you ain't welcome here."

Tennessee is one of many U.S. states that has seen an alarming increase in COVID-19 cases. On the Friday before Rice's concert, the state confirmed 1,410 additional cases, setting a new record for the most positive cases within one day and making it the worst week of the pandemic in Tennessee so far.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
