The famed musician is isolating with husband David Furnish and sons Zachary, 9, and Elijah, 7, where they play Snakes and Ladders every weekend.

“To be honest with you, it has been great to spend this much time with my boys,” he continued. “It’s 24/7 with them and it’s been fantastic.”

He then joked, “I’m saying that after a week. Check on me in about three weeks.”

He also had some advice for all the young people who, like him once, think they are “invincible.”

“This is a different situation that has ever happened before. You have to be very careful. Stick with your family…cherish it while you can,” he mused. “It gives us a chance to reflect on what life is all about…coming together as one is what I hope will be the result of all of this.”
