26 Legendary Musicians You Should Dress as For Halloween This Year
Choosing a Halloween costume is pretty much like choosing a new identity: it's one night to be whoever you want, and what's more fun than pretending you're a celebrity? Of course you could go more current and channel Beyoncé, Britney Spears, or Justin Bieber, but going back in time can be really exciting too - especially when it comes to paying homage to an iconic musician. Last year, Kim Kardashian and her sister Kourtney channeled Madonna and Michael Jackson with spot-on looks, and other stars have paid homage to legends like Selena Quintanilla, Amy Winehouse, Cher, and Prince. If you're thinking about taking a trip down memory lane, keep reading for our costume inspiration!

After a four-year break, Jessica Lange made her triumphant return to FX’s “American Horror Story” during the sixth episode of “Apocalypse,” directed by none other than Sarah Paulson. In “Return to Murder House,” witches Madison (Emma Roberts) and Behold (Billy Porter) traveled to the haunted Season 1 residence at Cordelia’s (Paulson) request to try to learn more information about Michael (Cody Fern). While there, Constance Langdon appeared as a chain-smoking, whisky-guzzling ghost and taunted the witches in classic Jessica Lange fashion. Scroll down to see the 11 most delicious zingers from her “Ahs” encore.

Flashback: Cher Brings the Future of Pop to ‘Top of the Pops’ With ‘Believe’

Flashback: Cher Brings the Future of Pop to ‘Top of the Pops’ With ‘Believe’
This Friday, October 19th, marks the 20th anniversary of Cher’s “Believe,” the hit song that ended up predicting our future of techno-bubblegum and robo-warble. A massive hit in 1998 and 1999 — it was Number One in America, the U.K., Australia, France, Germany and more — it helped introduced the world to Auto-Tune, the once-maligned, now-ubiquitous software that melts a singer’s voice into uncanny perfection.

With the software less than two years old, producers Mark Taylor and Brian Rawling used the pitch correction software not as a way to fix mistakes in Cher’s iconic voice,

Golden Globes flashback: Lady Gaga wins, and a legendary Gif is born [Watch]

Before Warner Bros. submitted ‘A Star Is Born” in drama at the Golden Globes, Lady Gaga had been the overwhelming favorite to win Best Comedy/Musical Actress — and could very well win Best Drama Actress as well if the submission is approved. But as every person who’s on the internet knows, this ain’t her first rodeo with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Gaga famously won in 2016 for “American Horror Story: Hotel” and even more famously helped produce one of the greatest awards show moments of all time.

Gaga took home the Best Limited Series/TV Movie Actress Globe for her turn as The Countess over Kirsten Dunst (“Fargo”), Sarah Hay (“Flesh and Bone”), Felicity Huffman (“American Crime”) and Queen Latifah (“Bessie”). As she made her way to the stage, she brushed up against Leonardo DiCaprio‘s chair. The actor, who won later that night for “The Revenant,” clearly

Omarosa: Jared Has “Absolutely No Idea What’s Going On”; Ivanka “Loves Being Daddy’s Little Girl”
Omarosa Manigault Newman took her Unhinged book tour to Bill Maher’s Real Time, where she continued to torch the Trump administration she’d previously ordered us all to bow down before. This time, however, the interview wasn’t the walkover she’s come to expect.

Maher kicked things off noting she’d started in Washington politics working for the Clinton administration.

“In 1998 we were going through an investigation by guy named Ken Starr; we were faced with impeachment. There was a lot of corruption,” Omarosa said by way pointing out the many similarities.

Maher wasn’t having it.

“It wasn’t the same kind of corruption. I don’t think Clinton was colluding with Russia,” Maher pushed back. The controversy back then was “people were sleeping in the Lincoln Bedroom,” he insisted.

Maher remembered seeing Omarosa in a promo for CBS’s Celebrity Big Brother, on which she starred

Watch Nile Rodgers Unlock the Science Behind the Perfect Groove in ‘Sober’ Video
Disco legends Nile Rodgers and Chic head to Abbey Road to uncover the scientific secret behind the perfect groove in the new video for “Sober,” premiering exclusively at Rolling Stone. The New Jack Swing-inspired cut features British singer Craig David and rising rapper Stefflon Don.

A new Oscar favorite is born: Lady Gaga dethrones Glenn Close in our Best Actress predictions

A new Oscar favorite is born: Lady Gaga dethrones Glenn Close in our Best Actress predictions
Lady Gaga is indeed far from the shallow now — because she has just overtaken Glenn Close as the Best Actress Oscar frontrunner in our combined odds.

Gaga and Close both still have 4/1 odds, but the singer is slightly ahead — 19.69 percent to 19.47 percent — of Close thanks to her higher placements outside of the top spot by our Experts, Editors and Top 24 Users. Six Experts, one Editor and seven Top 24 Users are backing Gaga, while seven Experts, seven Editors and 13 Users are going with Close.

A six-time nominee, Close had been the predicted champ since our predictions center opened in August for her performance in “The Wife.” But Gaga has been slowly ascending the ranks following the glowing reviews she and “A Star Is Born” have received since it premiered at the Venice Film Festival. And now that the film has opened to a stellar $41.2 million this weekend with many fans, famous and not,

Did you think Dove Cameron would pass up the role of Cher in Clueless? As if!

The Disney Channel actress, 22, will play Cher in an off-Broadway production of Clueless: The Musical, according to Deadline.

A rep for Cameron did not immediately respond to People’s request for comment.

If Lady Gaga (‘A Star Is Born’) can’t save the Oscars, no one can

If Lady Gaga (‘A Star Is Born’) can’t save the Oscars, no one can
The Oscars are off the deep end. And only Lady Gaga can dive in and save them.

Last year’s 90th ceremony, in which “The Shape of Water” won Best Picture, hit an all-time low with viewers. In fact, academy chiefs were so spooked by the anemic ratings that they initiated several changes going forward, including limiting the show to only three hours and presenting some categories during the commercial breaks. “We have heard from many of you about improvements needed to keep the Oscars and our academy relevant in a changing world,” president John Bailey and CEO Dawn Hudson said in a statement. “The Board of Governors took this charge seriously.”

No matter how many tweaks the academy makes, it’s ludicrous to think that Average Joe will tune in to the 2019 Oscars because it’s shorter or because Best Sound Mixing won’t be presented live. In the

Tha Carter V, bound in contractual red tape for years as Lil Wayne worked out his departure from Cash Money, sold 480,000 total copies to open atop the Billboard 200, the rapper’s fourth Number One album, Billboard reports.

Will Lady Gaga in ‘A Star Is Born’ Flip the Script on Female Singers-Turned-Actors?

Will Lady Gaga in ‘A Star Is Born’ Flip the Script on Female Singers-Turned-Actors?
To a much greater degree than their male counterparts, many of music’s top female singers have attempted to make the leap into the next frontier: acting. Yet only a few have managed to sustain major screen careers.

Does Lady Gaga possess the thespian talent to pull it off? She already has a Golden Globe for “American Horror Story” to go along with her six Grammys. Now, with her first starring role in a feature film, the just-opened fourth remake of “A Star Is Born,” she’s on the edge of potential Oscar glory.

You could say the true test of potential staying power for female singers has been the screen test. Doris Day aced hers in the golden age of Hollywood, and so, in the rock era, did Cher, after several flubs (including the 1969 flop “Chastity”). Barbra Streisand and Bette Midler both started in the theater but became famous

Barbra Streisand Is Working Hard On Her Upcoming Projects: 'She Loves Being Busy' (Exclusive)

Don’t tell Barbra Streisand to slow down, to just to sit and putter. "I can't retire. How could I? I'm an entertainer, and the world needs an escape from the pressure," the diva, 76, previously told The Sunday Post. "Even if I thought about it, there is always another phone call asking for another concert or recording." Now inspired by her friend Cher's new hit record, Barbra is ready to deliver. "I'm back in the studio," the singer previously announced, teasing a new project she says will be coming soon. "She loves being busy," an insider exclusively told Closer Weekly — in the magazine's latest issue, on newsstands now! — of Barbra's first original album since 2016. "She thought she was Ok not recording for a while and taking some time off, but she wasn't. She was getting bored and couldn’t stand it." (Photo Credit: Getty Images) What will be even

5 reasons why I knew Lady Gaga would soar in ‘A Star Is Born’

5 reasons why I knew Lady Gaga would soar in ‘A Star Is Born’
Some singers turned film actors hit a high note by playing a version of themselves, such as Whitney Houston in “The Bodyguard,” bolstered by a safety-net soundtrack of surefire hits. Then there is Cher, who dropped the glam act and proved herself worthy of the silver screen in 1983’s “Silkwood,” 1985’s “Mask“ and especially 1987’s “Moonstruck,” the source of her Best Actress Oscar. As for Madonna, she started out with a bang riffing off her taboo-eschewing personas in 1985’s “Desperately Seeking Susan.” But save for her sexpot ball player in 1992’s “A League of Her Own” and her dedicated effort to nail the musical intricacies of 1996’s “Evita,” for which she won a Golden Globe, the Material Girl was not all that adept at picking her own big-screen material.

Lady Gaga vs Barbra Streisand: Will ‘A Star Is Born’ Launch a Billion-Dollar Career at the Box Office?
A Star Is Born” opens this weekend as one of the most anticipated releases of 2018. The film’s title may as well refer to its lead actress, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Lady Gaga, whose previous movie experience came from brief appearances in two Robert Rodriguez films. Her reviews are rapturous and she’s a leading contender for a Best Actress Oscar nomination, all of which could make her the biggest singing crossover since Barbra Streisand.

Hollywood hasn’t seen a singer become a breakout success since Whitney Houston in 1992 — although many have tried. John Singleton’s 1993 “Poetic Justice” featured Janet Jackson opposite Tupac Shakur, which grossed $61 million. She costarred with Eddie Murphy in “The Nutty Professor 2: The Klumps” ($212 million), and was part of a Tyler Perry ensemble in two “Why Did I Get Married” films.

In 2001, Mariah Carey starred in “Glitter,” which was an embarrassing flop. The 2002 “Wise Girls” was a
