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.

Gabrielle Union twinning with her daughter as Clovers cheerleaders from ‘Bring it On’

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. 

Stormi Webster as mom Kylie Jenner

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.

Kali Uchis’ “Telepatía” is Becoming a Global Hit Thanks to TikTok

Kali Uchis’ “Telepatía” is Becoming a Global Hit Thanks to TikTok

Through the power of TikTok, Kali Uchis is taking her song “Telepatía” to the top. The Colombian-American singer is sitting comfortably in the top 10 of Spotify’s Top 200 chart in the U.S. thanks to a TikTok trend.

This isn’t the first time that TikTok brought new fame to songs.

TikTok has proven to be quite the catalyst for today’s top hits. The app assisted in getting Olivia Rodrigo’s “drivers license” to the top of Billboard Hot 100 chart, where it remains. TikTok also reinvigorated interest in Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” last year thanks to Doggface’s viral video. Now Uchis is getting her long overdue shine with “Telepatía.”

“Telepatía” is becoming a global hit thanks to the same phenomenon.

At No. 7 on the Spotify U.S. chart, “Telepatía” is the highest-charting Latin song in the country. Bad Bunny’s “Dákiti” with Jhay Cortez is the next closest Latin song at No. 14. “Telepatía” is also making waves across the globe where the song is charting on Spotify’s Viral Charts in 66 countries and in the Top Songs Charts of 32 countries.

There’s also plenty of “Telepatía” memes.

Uchis is turning the viral song’s success into strong sales and streaming. On this week’s Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart, “Telepatía” debuts at No. 10, marking her first top 10 hit on the chart. There are also memes circulating on other social media apps that are contributing to the song’s virality.

“Telepatía” is one of the key cuts on Uchis’ debut Latin album, Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios). It’s the best example of her translating that alternative soul music that she’s known for into Spanish. The song is notably in Spanglish as Uchis sings about keeping a love connection alive from a distance. It’s timely considering this era of social distancing that we’re in during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Uchis is currently nominated for a Grammy Award. She’s up for Best Dance Recording for her feature on Kaytranada’s “10%” song.

Kehlani Dresses as Both Prom King and Queen on Cover of ‘Playboy’, Talks Feeling Comfortable in Both Gender Roles

Kehlani Dresses as Both Prom King and Queen on Cover of ‘Playboy’, Talks Feeling Comfortable in Both Gender Roles

Kehlani has long been open about the fluid nature of her gender expression. That’s why it’s exciting that the R&B star is experimenting with different facets of her personality on the most recent cover of Playboy.

In a bold move, Kehlani appears on Playboy‘s latest cover dressed in both (traditionally) women and (traditionally) men’s clothing.

And as if one Kehlani isn’t exciting enough, the magazine cover treats us to two versions of this Oakland native. On the left side of the magazine, Kehlani is dressed up as a Prom Queen, complete with a resplendent gown and a tiara. On the cover’s right side, Kehlani is dressed in Prom King drag: her tie undone, her collar open, her crown askew.

She shared the picture to her personal Instagram page with the cheeky caption: “I always wanted to date me.”

In the accompanying interview, Kehlani talks about gender identity and expression, motherhood, and owning her sexuality.

When Kehlani was asked how she defines masculinity and femininity, Kehlani got refreshingly candid. “I’ve discovered that I’ve run from a lot of femininity,” she admitted. “I was way more comfortable in a more masculine space. I feel more masculine when I am in my stillness and I’m grounded in a quiet, contemplative mode.”

She then explained that she feels “most feminine” when she’s “being the mother of my house.” (Kehlani had a baby girl named Adeya Nomi in 2019). She also explained that she “feels her femininity” when she ‘s indulging in self-care, like soaking in a flower-filled bath, or doing a hair mask.

“My femininity makes me feel soft and gentle and tender and careful in a different way than my masculinity makes me feel,” she said. “I’m trying not to let it fall into the gender norms of feminine and masculine, but for me it does a tiny bit. But I also am very fluid in both of those settings.”

Kehlani has always been open about her fluid sexuality and gender identity.

In 2018, she tweeted: “Not bi, not straight. I’m attracted to women, men, REALLY attracted to queer men, non-binary people, intersex people, trans people”.

But of course, haters on the internet accused her of “queer-baiting”–that is, pretending she’s queer to get more LGBT fans and attract attention. In an interview with The Guardian last year, she revealed why the accusation frustrates her.

“I’ve had girlfriends in front of people’s faces, right under their noses, and they weren’t famous and so nobody cared to make it public,” she said. “So they automatically assume that I must like men more than women.”
