Rita Wilson on Naughty By Nature Remix and Getting Creative in Quarantine (Exclusive)

Quarantine has allowed Rita Wilson to tap into her most creative self. 

In an interview with ET's Kevin Frazier on Monday, the performer opened up about how she's been spending her days at home -- writing! 

"In some ways, it's been a very creative time and in some ways, it's been a very reflective time. I've been writing songs almost every day," Wilson revealed. "I read this really good Socrates quote the other day which read, 'Beware of the barrenness of busy life," and I think that we are absolutely able to reflect on that right now when we are in quarantine and thinking about what's important." 

Wilson and her husband, Tom Hanks, were among the first public figures to reveal they had been diagnosed with COVID-19. The couple, who tested positive for the coronavirus while in Australia, have since recovered and returned home to the United States. Wilson's openness about her diagnosis has kept fans informed about COVID-19 -- but she's also used her Instagram for other things, like keeping followers entertained with a remix of Naughty by Nature's "Hip Hop Hooray."

"I did that as a fluke on my Instagram to show people I was recovering from coronavirus, but Naughty by Nature had saw that I'd done it and liked it," Wilson shared. "It turned into an incredible remix where we're doing it together." 

Proceeds of that remix will benefit MusiCares' COVID-19 Relief Fund, which will help members of the music community affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

Wilson's latest single, "Where's My Country Song?," was written pre-coronavirus, but produced in quarantine.
