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.

Stevie Nicks Says Fleetwood Mac Would Have Never Been Able To Continue If She Hadn’t Had An Abortion

Stevie Nicks Says Fleetwood Mac Would Have Never Been Able To Continue If She Hadn’t Had An Abortion

Fleetwood Mac has been a resurgence of attention in the past few weeks thanks, in part, to an Ocean Spray loving skateboarder. Still, long before TikTokers learned about the 1960’s rock band, the five members behind indelible tunes like “Dreams” and “The Chain” were producing some of the best-selling albums in history. Throughout their careers, the singers and songwriters of the group created lyrics with political significance. As a songwriter, and vocalist, Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nick, played a big part in the political impact of the band’s songs, so it’s no wonder why she recently made the decision to open up about her decision to have an abortion during the height of her career in the late 70s.

The beloved singer-songwriter opened up about her generation’s fight for abortion rights in an interview with The Guardian.

Touching on the recent attempts to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, Nicks remarked that the landmark Roe v. Wade decision would be overturned. She underlined the importance of abortion rights and how her decision to have one of her own made it possible for Fleetwood Mac to continue.

“If I had not had that abortion, I’m pretty sure there would have been no Fleetwood Mac,” Nicks told the outlet. “There’s just no way that I could have had a child then, working as hard as we worked constantly. And there were a lot of drugs, I was doing a lot of drugs … I would have had to walk away.”

During her interview, Nicks explained that it was important to her to “make people so happy” through her music but was more invested in ensuring that the group had two female singers and songwriters.

“And I knew that the music we were going to bring to the world was going to heal so many people’s hearts and make people so happy,” Nicks explained. “And I thought, ‘You know what? That’s really important. There’s not another band in the world that has two lead women singers, two lead women writers.’ That was my world’s mission.”

“Abortion rights, that was really my generation’s fight,” she went onto explain. “If President Trump wins this election and puts the judge he wants in, she will absolutely outlaw it and push women back into back-alley abortions.”

Speaking about 2020’s relentless unrest, Nicks recently explained in an interview with Variety that circumstances seem to have become worse than it was decades ago.

“Racism in the last four years is so much worse than it was. I’m 72 years old. I lived through the ‘60s. I’ve seen all this. I fought for Roe vs. Wade; that was my generation’s fight,” she said. “And I don’t want to live in a country that is so divisive. I go, like, well, if this starts over and there’s another four years of this, then I’m going — but we’re not welcome anywhere.”

“So where can I go? And I’m thinking: Oh, space,” she added. “Maybe I can talk Elon Musk into giving us a jet and letting me pick 50 people, and we’re like the arc, and someone can take us and let us live on another planet until the next four years are over.”

Earlier in October, Nicks dropped “Show them The Way” a new song inspired by the 2008 primaries between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

The song, was written during the time of the primaries and recently recorded.

“I just knew that right now, with the presidential election and everything else that’s going on, that this was the time,” Nicks explained. “I hope that this song and its words will be seen as a prayer — a prayer for our country, and a prayer for the world. It’s a pretty heavy song. And I think it’s just a spectacular song.”

Zariah And Ugly Primo Want To Make Sure That You Get Out There And Vote For Our Community

Zariah And Ugly Primo Want To Make Sure That You Get Out There And Vote For Our Community

Weiden + Kennedy / YouTube

There is a lot at stake in the upcoming elections. Organizations representing so many communities have come forward to fight for civil rights. Artists are also getting involved to make sure that their fans and and communities get out the vote and make the world the way they want to see it.

Zairah and Ugly Primo teamed up to tell their fans to get out and vote.

“Mueve El Pom Pom” is an anthem to all of the people out there who need to be mobilized to go vote. Ugly Primo and Zairah teamed up to create a visual piece of art that highlights the importance of getting out the vote in a very important election.

The animated music video makes the case for the need to get out the vote. Zairah and Ugly Primo highlight the crises facing the American public from affordable healthcare to an immigration system that needs to be reformed to the Trump administration’s continued attacks on public education.

The video is really pushing for people to get their pom poms to the polls.

Images of protest signs we have seen throughout Trump’s administration make an appearance. Black Lives Matter and pro-women signs appear in both English and Spanish to highlight the need for all communities to come together.

The visuals, done by the one and only Ugly Primo, drive home the importance of our community voting as a bloc to create the kind of society we want to live in. It is also encouraging people to go out and vote and to vote any way that they can.

The video is calling on the Latino community to come together and vote to save our democracy.

There is a lot of concern about the fate of democracy in the U.S. The Trump administration has bulldozed over political norms and made comments contrary to our democracy. The latest example of President Trump threatening American democracy is him saying he isn’t sure if he will accept the results of the election. This simple and peaceful transition of power is what democracies are built on. President Trump has not signaled that he will be willing to peacefully accept the election results.
