Demi Lovato, Camila Mendes And Cardi B: Here Are Our Favorite Celebrities In Over The Top Halloween Costumes

Halloween 2019 is taking over two spooky weekends this year, and that means we’re getting double the parties and double the celebrity costume extravaganza. We all know crazy Halloween fans who go all out on All Hallows Eve, but no one nails costumes quite like celebs do. Granted, most of us don’t have the budget they do, so let’s sit back and watch as they serve spooky looks for all of us to gawk at. Here’s what we gathered from weekend one.

With another weekend in store, we selected our favorite celebrity costumes from weekend number one.

Reigning Halloqueen, Heidi Klum, hasn’t hosted her annual Halloween party yet, so we have next weekend to look up to for that, but many celebs hit the town in other celebrity-inspired costumes, dressed up as dead history characters, or just as a good old ‘sexy-this-or-that’ outfit. We rounded up some of our faves:

Demi Lovato as Sexy Penny Wise

The Halloween-loving singer already blew our minds with her costume choices this year. On Saturday she dressed up as a lady version of Pennywise the clown, complete with professional clown makeup, a cute red wig and a ruffled white dress with red, fluffy buttons to resemble the villain’s iconic outfit.

Demi again, of course. The singer takes Halloween very seriously, and this year she’s already wowed everyone with two killer costumes. For round two, Demi dressed up as everyone’s favorite decadent monarch, Marie Antoinette. The singer was in full glam with pearl makeup embellishments and a massive blonde wig to look just like the 18th-century royal. 

Halsey as Marilyn Manson

Thank God someone paid tribute to the one and only man who celebrates Halloween 365 days a year. Halsey channeled Marilyn Manson’s late 90s clam at her annual Halloween party in L.A. The singer recreated Manson’s iconic ‘Mechanical Animals’ album cover art in a red wig and elaborate eye makeup, complete with a white vinyl bodysuit. 

Cardi B as a Sexy Nurse

There really is nothing Cardi could ever wear that wouldn’t be deemed as ‘sexy’, so let’s just leave it at nurse. The singer wore a skintight mini-length, nurse’s outfit, complete with a hat and stethoscope to join hubby Offset on stage in New Jersey.

Halsey —again. Dressed up as Cher

Paired up with rumored-beau Evan Peters, Haley dressed up in the iconic couple’s costume of Sonny and Cher. From the slick hair and the polka-dot coordinating ensembles to the very ‘70s ‘stache and “Cher” nameplate necklace, both Halsey and Evan matched the iconic pair’s looks to perfection.

Camila Mendes as Rick, from Rick and Morty

The 25-year-old actress channeled her inner genius scientist and made it hella sexy in the process, throwing on a baby blue bobbed wig and a chic white blazer as a lab coat. She even covered her chin in glitter to hint at Rick’s dribble —ugh how did we not think about this one?

Lele Pons as Maleficent

The Venezuelan YouTube star dressed up as everyone’s favorite Disney villain, Maleficent. She also posed with fellow Youtuber, Hannah Stocking, who went as Cruella de Vil and honeslty, we wish we could be in the picture with those two.

The actress also decided to dress up as the mistress of evil in a full length dress and matching horns. Are we spotting a trend here?

Lele took the Joker craze to the next level by channeling her inner Gotham super-villain in the making the ‘Joker’ —the sexier version that is. Complete with an orange corset, red blazer and green hair, we think the influencer nailed it. 

Nina Dobrev as Billie Eillish

The ‘Vampire Diaries’ seems to have caught a case of the ‘ocean eyes’. The actress channe;ed Gen Z star, Billie Eillish in bright, baggy clothing reminiscent of the Bury A Friend songstress’ frequent onstage look.

The actress dressed up as her iconic character, Isis, in the 2000 teen film, Bring It On. Not only was it major to see the 46-year-old star don that famous green “Clovers” cheerleading uniform, but she twinned with her baby daughter, Kaavia James Union Wade. And the two served lewks in their costumes, too.

Liza Koshy as Anna Wintour

The comedian dressed up as infamous fashion ring-master Anna Wintour. A fashion editor costume? For Halloween? …yeah, ok, pretty groundbreaking.

Kylie Jenner dressed her one-year-old daughter in a recreated version of her Met Gala look at this year’s event. The original gown worn by Jenner in May was a custom design from Versace, but this one’s pretty neat too.

This Video Of A Woman Doing ASL To Cardi B’s ‘WAP’ Is Too Lit

This Video Of A Woman Doing ASL To Cardi B’s ‘WAP’ Is Too Lit

Atlantic Records

Just when you thought the hype around Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” might be trickling down, a recent video of an ASL interpreter translating the lyrics has gone viral.

After dropping her big track collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion, Dominican/Trinidadian rapper Cardi B has had just about everybody repeating the beloved lines of the song over and over again. But the most important rendition of the big hit is one done by a woman who does ASL and performs to “WAP” like a boss.

The now-viral clip is beyond entertaining and inspiring to watch. Mostly because the woman in the video not only has the MOVES she also has the lyrics on lock.

A TikTok and Twitter user whose handle is @Freelove19xx went viral for her recent “WAP” ASL cover.

@Freelove19xx, who has yet to be identified by name, recorded herself passionately repeating the lyrics to “WAP” in ASL while channeling the slick and sexy vibe of the Cardi B x Megan Thee Stallion hit. In the video, the TikTok user can be seen interpreting each line of the WAP lyrics while expertly swaying her hips and bopping to the music.

In the comments, users questioned how @Freelove19xx was able to keep up with the rhythm of the music without hearing, she revealed that she has a “speaker that vibrates my whole house lmao. I can feel the music.”

Users inspired by the tweet were quick to celebrate @Freelove19xx for her post.

“A lot of times the variations of a sign are used for a song’s chorus so that it doesn’t seem too repetitive or redundant. It’s a wholeass art, as a hearing person that knows ASL, it’s amazing to see EVERY DAMN TIME lol,” one user commented.

“I absolutely love this. I’ve taken deaf studies & ASL classes & trying to learn 1 sign a week since then. hopefully, I can be signing like u someday!” another user pointed out. “Its hard w no one to practice w but i hope to gain more friends in the deaf community to help me w that. Anyway, you did amazing!”

“Ahhhhh I have no words!!” an adoring commenter replied. “This is grounds for a marriage proposal.”

Thanks to the clip, fans are already demanding the obvious:

“Has anyone started a petition asking Cardi to have Bluejay in her next video yet?” one user asked.

As of this publication, @Freelove19xx has yet to respond to mitú’s request for comment.

Tiger King’s Carole Baskin Just Shaded Cardi B For Using ‘Big Cat Pimps’ For ‘WAP’ Video —”people won’t even see the cats because it is so sexually explicit”

Tiger King’s Carole Baskin Just Shaded Cardi B For Using ‘Big Cat Pimps’ For ‘WAP’ Video —”people won’t even see the cats because it is so sexually explicit”

WMG

Just about everyone has something to say about Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s steamy “WAP” music video. The project, which dropped last week, has gained all kinds of attention and feelings. From thoughts about Kylie Jenner’s appearance to viewpoints on the outfits, just about everyone has drawn their own conclusions about “WAP”. We just weren’t expecting “Tiger King” star Carole Baskin to be one of them.

That’s right Tiger King’s Carole Baskin has seen “WAP” and the big-cat rights activist and CEO of Big Cat Rescue ain’t happy.

When it comes to the trending music video, you can color Baskin unimpressed.

WMG

The video, which features cameos from Kylie Jenner, Normani, Rubi Rose, Sukihana, Rosalía, and Mulatto, has a big cat and a few snakes to boot.

“My guess is that most people won’t even see the photoshopped cats in the scenes because the rest of it is so sexually explicit,” Baskin said of the video in a statement to Entertainment Weekly. “I was happy to see that it does appear to all be photoshopped. It didn’t look like the cats were really in the rooms with the singers.”

Despite this, Baskin says she’s not happy with Cardi or Megan’s decision to feature wild animals.

WMG

A big cat is featured in the “WAP” music video alongside Kylie Jenner as she walks down a long hallway and notices it watching her from behind an open door.

“That being said, you have to pose a wildcat in front of a green screen to get that image and that doesn’t happen in the wild,” Baskin explained. “It can happen in sanctuaries like ours where cats have plenty of room to avoid a green screen (or would shred it if offered access and could die from ingesting it).”

Baskin went onto point out that they “probably dealt with one of the big cat pimps, probably even one of the ones shown in Tiger King, Murder, Mayhem and Madness, who make a living from beating, shocking and starving cats to make them stand on cue in front of a green screen in a studio. That’s never good for the cat.”

But Baskin says her big concern is that the WAP video will encourage other artists to use big cats in their own work.

Netflix

“That makes every follower of these artists, who doesn’t know better, want to imitate by doing the same,” she continued. “After tigers are too old for pay to play sessions by people like Joe Exotic, Bhagavan ‘Doc’ Antle, Marc McCarthy, Mario Tabraue and others, they become a liability instead of an asset.”

“While I think most [big cats] are destroyed behind closed gates at that point, some end up being given away to people who want to have a tiger to show off,” she added. “That never works out and the cats either die or end up dumped in sanctuaries or worse yet, breeding mills. There have been some accounts of tigers just being turned loose on communities when they no longer served as ego props. No matter how you cut it, it’s always abusive to the cat and dangerous to the public.”

Speaking about her decision to feature other artists and women in “WAP” Cardi told New Music Daily on Apple Music that she was eager to show that women can support other women.

“I feel like people be wanting to put female artists against each other. … You know what I’m saying?” Cardi explained. “Every single time I feel like there’s a female artist that’s coming up … I always see like little slick comments like, ‘Oh, they taking over your spot. They taking over this. They taking over that.’ And it just makes me feel like, damn, why it had to be like that? Because I actually like shorty music a lot. Why does it even have to be like that?”
