Stars—they’re just like us! Especially when it comes to this year’s rare solar eclipse, which had celebs and regular folks all fired up just the same.
Being the first such solar event in 99 years, getting a glimpse (via special glasses) as it happened became a priority for some of the world’s favorite artists and musicians, who took to social media to share their experiences, and of course eclipse jokes.

Accidentally looked at the sun before the eclipse for a few seconds! I'll let y'all know if I turn into a vampire or not.—
