Lady Gaga, Beyonce And More Musical Halloween Costumes

If you're too broke to go trick-or-treating, Bigger Than the Sound is here to help!

Halloween is just around the corner, and even though times are tough, that doesn't mean you shouldn't still have a kick-ass costume. And since no one wants to end up trick or treating as a lame ghost (or a "sexy border patrol agent"), I'm here to help, with a handful of homemade Halloween costumes that allow you to still dress up as your favorite artist, while not breaking the bank.

Of course, if you don't have a bank to break, fret not, because a lot of my ideas don't require a costume at all — just your imagination, a fierce attitude and an awareness of irony that borders on, well, ironic. So, if you're at a loss for your next costume — or too broke to care — read on, because, boy, do I have some suggestions for you. After all, Halloween is for everyone (especially those who love candy), and who among us doesn't want to dress up like Coldplay?!? Have a look, and send me some candy!

Adele: Deceptively easy. Refrain from speaking to anyone all night (vocal rest!) while firing through Marlboros like a mahjong player on a bender. For added authenticity, sell approximately one bazillion albums.

Beyoncé: Take a balloon and stuff it beneath your $10,000 Reed Krakoff dress, mimic B's matronly glow with a $7,000 HD Ruby and Diamond Peel Facial, strap your $1,200 Christian Louboutin heels on extra tight to replicate the ankle-swelling side effects of pregnancy. Or just down a crate of Four Loko and get all crazy like the "Ring the Alarm" video.

Britney Spears: Get a boyfriend with exactly 24 rippling abdominal muscles. Consume Strawberry Frappuccinos as if they were being discontinued. Be a commercially viable force, much to the consternation of critics and naysayers the world over. Say "y'all" a lot.

Coldplay: Dress in matching, finger-painted outfits with three of your closest friends (or, in a pinch, tattered French Revolutionary garb). Donate all your candy to Oxfam. Hang out with Brian Eno. Maintain an almost annoying level of self-efficacy.

Justin Bieber: Just get a snake named Johnson.

Kanye West: Communicate to every single person you meet as if you were speaking in ALL CAPS. Wear sunglasses, even at night. Have a bizarre thing for the Olsen twins. Over-share when it comes to your personal feelings and sexual proclivities. Create complex, Machiavellian conspiracy theories. Treat every comment and criticism as if it were a flaming sword to the torso. Cut a Maybach in half with your pal Jay-Z.

Katy Perry: Dress up as a mermaid. Or a gawky, orthodontically enhanced pre-teen. Or an S&M cheetah. Or a space alien. Or, really, you could just lick a bunch of candy and stick it to various parts of your body. Katy's simple.

Lady Gaga: Sure, you could go the easy route and just trick or treat as Jo Calderone (and deliver a lengthy monologue while doing so), but where's the fun in that? Instead, why not meld yourself with a motorcycle, like the British boxer-turned-model, make a drug-fueled music video with him. Note: May not get you a ton of candy on the farms of Northern Ireland.

Beyonce's 'Countdown' Video Shoot Was 'Evolving, Spontaneous'

'I love the creative team that works with Beyonce because they can roll with anything,' video director Adria Petty says.

Beyoncé's "Countdown" video plays up the singer's theatrical side. It pays homage to iconic films like "West Side Story" and "Funny Face," as well as '60s icons like the Supremes and Audrey Hepburn. The clip, co-directed by Adria Petty, is an eye-catching glimpse at the pop culture moments that reside in the creative conscience of the pop star.

While a lot of the video displays the singer's personality and spunk, as well as her ever-expanding baby bump, it's clear that Petty and her team worked hard to make sure they captured the spirit of the milestones they re-created in the video.

"I brought Beyoncé a number of references and we picked some out together. Most were German modern-dance references, believe it or not. But it really evolved," she told MTV News, calling it "an evolving, spontaneous process."

Check out what we spotted, and let us know what we missed!

"The references were then dispersed to her creative team (hair, makeup, wardrobe), and they interpreted them on the set in their own special way. Of course, one of the strongest wardrobe references was Audrey Hepburn in 'Funny Face' when she does the beatnik dance scene. I think a lot grew from there," Petty continued.

Shot over the last few months in New York City warehouses, the shoot was all about being able to squeeze in all of her work commitments while also trying to finish the elaborately set video.

What do Queen B's fans have to say about that "Countdown" baby bump?

"The shoot was great. We had a number of brilliant dancers and musicians and a top-notch crew. Beyoncé brings in a number of her own people who are so hardworking. Our video was the fourth they had shot in five days," Petty said. "I love the creative team that works with Beyoncé because they can roll with anything and keep smiling. Everyone was really upbeat and excited because we all love the track and the opportunity to work with Beyoncé so much."

Jay-Z, Kanye West's Throne Tour Has Thrilling Liftoff

Regal rap titans bounced through Watch the Throne cuts and solo smashes in a set marked by a gaudy display of hits.
By Rob Markman

ATLANTA, Georgia — Not even a stormy night could stop the regal reign of the Throne. On Friday, Jay-Z and Kanye West opened up their Watch the Throne Tour in Atlanta. While the WTT album has been noted for its opulent displays of wealth, Hov and Yeezy's show will be marked by the duo's overabundance of hit records.

The doors to the Philips Arena opened at 7:30 p.m. ET and, with no scheduled show opener, the house DJ played old slow jams like the Isley Brothers' "Between the Sheets," Little Beaver's "Get Into the Party Life" and Hank Crawford's "Wildflower" — all songs that have been sampled by Kanye and Jay at one time or another. Still, the subtle measure wasn't nearly enough to keep fans satisfied. By 9 p.m. ET, the crunked-up crowd was restless and salivating for the night's stars.

With the house lights low and fans pumped, the multilayered instrumental from "H.A.M." came blaring through the sound system. The initial WTT track has been criticized by some as too over-the-top and too much unlike anything in Jay and 'Ye's respective catalogs, but the helter-skelter mix of crashing symbals, bleeps, beeps and bombastic bass was clearly built specifically for sports stadiums and grand auditoriums.

The build was perfect, even if the execution wasn't. Kanye commandeered a rising platform at the front of the stage, while Jay simultaneously occupied a similar lift that was situated on the floor in the middle of the crowd. Within moments, the duo were elevated in unison towering above the audience, volleying verses from one side of the arena to the other. Jay stumbled vocally, though: His ear piece short-circuited and failed to properly feed him the music and his timing was clearly affected. For a time, Hov's raps were badly off beat.

But there were no fits and no cursing at the sound man. Instead, Jay fought through the malfunction, which lasted through the next song. While mid-verse on the dubstep-laced "Who Gon Stop Me," Jigga cued to have the music cut, then finished his bars a capella, buying time until the technical mistake was corrected. From there, perfection ensued.

"Otis" came early in the set. With a Givenchy-designed American flag flashing on the stage's main screens, the Throne bounced through their fan-fave with a youthful glee. Surprisingly, the Roc Boys performed a number of hyped-up Watch the Throne cuts in the first quarter of the show.

With the Throne tone set, Kanye disappeared from the stage while Jay got his rocks off spitting his 1997 street banger "Where I'm From." Throughout the night, Hov and Yeezy would trade off, rocking a few solo songs a piece, before coming together for something collaborative. 'Ye tore through "Can't Tell Me Nothing" and "Jesus Walks" all by himself, before Jigga reappeared for Yeezy's "Diamonds from Sierra Leone (Remix)."

Jay's "Public Service Announcement" and "You Don't Know" were played against Kanye's "Good Life" and "Power" in a sound clash of sorts. By the time the Louis Vuitton Don launched into the gut-wrenching "Runaway," he had hit his stride. He even remixed "Runaway," pleading with the crowd to hold on to their loved ones as he sang, "If you love somebody tonight, hold on real tight." It was effective as couples in the crowd, hugged, danced and two lovebirds even made out.

In a comical section of the set, Jay-Z and the College Dropout weaved a funny story line where their hits "Big Pimpin'," "Gold Digger" and "99 Problems" became a narrative for Jay to school his "little brother" on the opposite sex.

Kanye owned the outfit of the night. After one particular wardrobe change, he marched out to "Touch the Sky" sporting a tribal-type jacket, leather kilt, leather pants underneath and his glow-in-the-dark Air Yeezys. Hov's black Yankee snapback and matching hoodie were no match.

Every time the crowd thought the two-hour-plus show was over, it wasn't. First there was "N---as in Paris." The track's Will Farrell intro ("We're gonna skate to one song and one song only") brought on the moment that everyone was waiting for. As the Atlanta crowd bounced feverishly to the Hit Boy-produced single, Jay halted the proceedings midway: "Start that sh-- over," he barked as the Throne's most-energetic selection of the night brought the crowd to an apex.

Next was Jay's "Encore," followed by an inspirational rendition of "Made in America," complete with images of Martin Luther King Jr. and "sweet brother" Malcolm X flashing on the big screen. Finally, the Throne closed with the rocked-out "Why I Love You," saluting the crowd as they moseyed offstage. "Peace ATL, thanks for all the love. Goodnight," Jay-Z said.

On a night where the two kings put their wealth on full display, lucky for Atlanta, Jay and Kanye West were willing to share.

Chris Brown Reveals Fortune Singles

Album is singer's follow-up to F.A.M.E., released earlier this year.

Chris Brown has already dropped F.A.M.E. this year, and now he's prepping for the release of his follow-up album, Fortune. The singer tweeted some of the titles of the singles on the album, which is expected to drop before year's end.

"Continue requesting WET THE BED [off F.A.M.E.] at ur radio stations. Also, the new singles from FORTUNE are being mixed!" he wrote on Twitter. "STRIP [off his Boy in Detention mixtape] is one of the singles off of FORTUNE so request at RADIO!"

In addition to "Strip," Breezy shared a few more song titles from the album. "I'm also really excited about the release of my single titled 'BIGGEST FAN' produced by the RUNNERS!" he said, before retweeting a message from his production team. "@chrisbrown 'Biggest Fan' is gonna be epic!! And wait till they hear what else we have in the vault together! Ha!"

In other Brown-related news, if Team Breezy can't wait to hear what he's cooking up for Fortune, that's just fine. The singer even tweeted a link to a song he penned for his pal Justin Bieber's Christmas album, Under The Mistletoe. It dropped as more songs off the November 1 release are hitting the Internet, including tracks featuring Mariah Carey and Busta Rhymes.

The track is a melodic R&B jam about making Christmas special for someone you love. "Be my babe this Christmas eve/ Be my holiday/ My dream/ Lay your head on me, I got you babe," he sings on the chorus. "Kissing underneath the tree/ I don't need no presents, girl/ You're everything I need/ Let me give you all of me/ Together on this Christmas Eve."

If it feels like Brown is everywhere these days, that's because he certainly is busy. He's wrapping up his tour next week before he begins work on his next film, "Planet B-Boy," alongside "Lost" star Josh Holloway. As the title suggests, it's a look inside the world of b-boys and breakdancers.

Nickelback Party Hard, Get Deep On Here And Now

Band's November 21 album kicks off with two wildly different singles, 'When We Stand Together' and 'Bottoms Up.'
By James Montgomery

Late last month, ahead of the release of their (sure to be colossal no matter what you think ) Here and Now album, Nickelback premiered a pair of singles — the pro-social "When We Stand Together" and the pro-party "Bottoms Up" — which seem to have only one thing in common: Nickelback wrote both of them.

After all, one's a positively massive power ballad with lyrics like "Hand in hand forever/ That's when we all win," and the other is, well, basically about drinking every substance under the sun, a list that includes, but is not limited to: Jim Beam, Jack Daniel's, Black-Tooth Grins — Dimebag certainly would've approved — and, of course, "straight gasoline." You can probably guess which is which.

But if you think "Stand Together" and "Bottoms Up" represent a Nickelback veering in two wildly dissimilar directions, well, just wait until you hear the rest of Here and Now, as the band told MTV News earlier this week.

"I mean, it's not Dark Side of the Moon or The Wall or something; it doesn't have this theme. It's more all over the map than those two [songs], for sure," frontman Chad Kroeger explained. "Because, when you play a Nickelback show, I mean, there is every range of person that you could possibly imagine on the face of the earth [in the audience], and you couldn't peg one on the street to save your life. I think we can all pick out a Slipknot fan, but it's tough to pick out a Nickelback fan, because they're all so different."

And that was the challenge presented to the band on Now, which contains a whole lot of party-ready chuggers, plus a couple more, uh, conscious tunes, too. But though you'd think penning songs about global suffering would be tough for Kroeger and Co., well, you'd be wrong. Because, quite frankly, it's writing the hard-charging, harder-drinking numbers that keeps the band up at night. After all, partying is something they take pretty seriously over at Nickelback H.Q.

"It's a drinking anthem. I mean, it's harder to write those songs than it is to write those social-awareness type songs, it really is," Kroeger admitted. "Because for us, they've got to be good. Some of the stuff's got to be a little tongue-in-cheek, there's got to be some clever stuff there, you know, and you've got to be descriptive. But when you get done listening to it, you need to have the feeling of just wanting to grab a bottle of Jack. And I think we got there, because we'd bring friends over all the time and it was just like, 'You are now a test subject! Hit play; turn it up nice and loud.' And the song's over and they'd be like, 'I want to drink. I want to drink something right now.' And we were like 'Yes!' "

Blink-182's Mark Hoppus Recalls Roof Diving, On 'When I Was 17'

On the next episode of "When I Was 17," Mark Hoppus, bassist for blink-182 and host of Fuse's "Hoppus on Music," sheds light on what his life was like before he was asking "What's my age again?"

Surprisingly (except not at all), he was as out of control back then as he is now, as he reveals on the episode, airing Saturday at 11 a.m. ET/PT.

"We were really smart as high-schoolers. We had a friend, his name was Dave, he had a two-story house, and in the backyard of his house was a pool. And his parents would leave for days at a time, so of course, Dave's a responsible guy, he wouldn't let anything bad happen. So we would jump off a second-story roof into the pool," admitted Hoppus, who just finished up on the Honda Civic Tour alongside My Chemical Romance. "We called it Acapulco cliff diving."

"It was definitely high enough so that if you jumped in, you had to turn your body as soon as possible so that you didn't eat your knees," he added.

While at first it started off safe — well, sort of — Acapulco cliff diving soon became more and more competitive as time went on.

"At first I think it was cannonballs and feet first, and then we'd one-up each other and by the end, people were doing flips. I definitely dove headfirst into this pool. It's a miracle that we're still here."

And a miracle it is, Mark. Because we can't imagine what life would have been like without some Blink-182.

Don't miss this week's episode of "When I Was 17," featuring Mark Hoppus, Sean Kingston and Tiffani Thiessen, at 11 a.m. Saturday on MTV.

Beyonce's 'Countdown' Baby Bump Wasn't Planned

'I believe she had a number of commitments and had not anticipated her special arrival,' director Adria Petty tells MTV News.
By Jocelyn Vena

In case you didn't notice, Beyoncé's rocking one major baby bump in her "Countdown" video.

The clip, co-directed by Adria Petty, features not only several references to the '60s but also a smiling Beyoncé showing off her pregnancy.

Find out what else the director had to say about the video shoot!

"When you work with Beyoncé, you are not only working with an intelligent and strongly collaborative individual but you are also usually battling with time and the given circumstances in her work life at that moment and, in this case, her personal life," Petty told MTV News last Friday. "So it's an evolving process that remains flexible," she explained. "The target we are always trying to hit is something that feels good and genuine for her."

When it came to B's look, Petty said the baby bump was pretty much inescapable. "When we first started shooting, she had not made that announcement and I do not believe that was the goal. But as the process evolved, I believe she wanted that to be celebrated in the video," she said.

The director added, "It was shot per Beyoncé's availability over a couple of months. She did her Roseland shows and the MTV Awards in the interim. I believe she had a number of commitments and had not anticipated her special arrival."

Despite having a baby onboard, Beyoncé bounces around in the "Countdown video — a lot. And it's that joie de vivre that's captured in the candy-coated clip. "I believe the video speaks for itself. But it is mostly just fun, flirty stuff that feels good for B," Petty said. "I think it is iconic, playful and romantic like the song itself."

Of the many set-ups in the video, Petty shared her favorite with us. "My favorite scenes are the 'me and my boo' scenes, the hipster dance and the sort of avant-garde, 'Flashdance' stuff. The amazing, cool cat choreographer Frank Gatson Jr. and I worked hard in rehearsals to get those grooves going," she said. "And they make me super happy and were really fun to shoot."

While fans buzz about "Countdown," the busy mom-to-be is already preparing to drop her next video, for "Love on Top."

Mobb Deep Up For Jay-Z Collabo, Despite Past Beef

'It's just hip-hop, man,' Prodigy tells MTV News' 'RapFix Live.'
By Rob Markman, with reporting by Sway Calloway

Time heals all wounds. After Jay-Z and Mobb Deep squared off lyrically in 2001, it was hard to imagine that the rap titans would ever get to a place where they would even consider a collaboration.

Nothing is in the works, but after working with Roc Nation's Jay Electronica, Mobb Deep told MTV News correspondent Sway Calloway that they'd be open to the idea of working with Hov.

"Tell [Jay-Z] to get in the studio," Prodigy said when he and his partner Havoc appeared on Wednesday's "RapFix Live." "He gotta come to Infamous Studios in Queens, though."

Though the two acts threw quite a few barbs at each other, most notably on Jay-Z's "Takeover" and Mobb Deep's "Crawlin' " 10 years ago, Prodigy was recently featured on a track with Hov's signee Jay Electronica on his "Call of Duty" track.

On the song's hook, Prodigy even spits, "Put your diamonds in the sky, wave 'em side to side/ Get juxed for your shine," a double-sided lyric that evokes the spirit of a robbery and makes a play on Jay's diamond-shaped hand gesture that he throws up at all his shows.

Mobb Deep even recorded the song at Jigga's Roc Da Mic studios in Manhattan; they clearly harbor no ill will. After Electronica attempted to reach Prodigy on Twitter, the Queens MC got the word that the Hov protégé wanted to work alongside him. "I just got mad phone calls. I woke up late that morning, and everybody was blowin' me up like, 'Yo, Jay Electronica is trying to get in the studio right now,' " Prodigy recalled. "So we just went and knocked it out."

Mobb Deep also plan to get together with J. Cole, another Jay-Z signee. "I was on the phone with J. Cole like the next day, congratulating him on his album and all that," Prodigy said of his conversation with the Cole World MC. "We're supposed to be doing some work together too."

For Mobb Deep, it isn't about beef; instead, the duo are at a place in their careers where all they want to do is make quality tunes. "It's just hip-hop, man, making good songs. Everything else is irrelevant, man," Prodigy stated. "All the feelings and dudes wanna act feminine, put that to the side, man."

Do you hope Mobb Deep and Jay-Z team up? Let us know in the comments!

Steven Tyler Explains Hotel Room Fall

'You can't handle the tooth,' bruised Aerosmith frontman jokes, attributing his tumble to illness from food poisoning.
By Jocelyn Vena

After news broke that Steven Tyler had fallen in his Paraguay hotel room, fans wondered about what may have caused the 63-year-old rock legend to take a tumble that required emergency dental work and stitches to his face.

On Thursday (October 27), Tyler opened up about the spill to Matt Lauer on the "Today" show, clearing up any speculation that he had fallen off the wagon.

"Being in the program, it's something we have to expect," Tyler said, referring to his past substance abuse issues. "People thinking that is natural and normal. We flew last night from Paraguay after that incident and we're in Argentina for two hours. And anyone who knows anyone who uses substances wouldn't be up at this hour having a talk with Matt Lauer and the rest of America. It's nothing that I don't understand. I get that people think that. It makes me a little upset."

Lauer then asked the Aerosmith singer point-blank whether he was sober, and the "American Idol" judge assured him he was clean. "No, it's not the issue," Tyler said, adding that he was suffering from food poisoning when he began to feel ill and passed out in the shower.

Tyler and the band were forced to cancel their gig on Tuesday night, but a bruised Steven did take the stage on Wednesday, according to TMZ.

"Short of having my legs taken off, people are going to expect me onstage, no matter what," the singer, who lost two teeth, said on "Today." "I went out onstage last night and I wore my sunglasses for the first song. I took them off and the crowd roared. It's all about playing to the people. We rocked out. Not only did I break my face, but we broke a house record, so life is beautiful, Matt."

Amy Winehouse Cause of Death: Alcohol Poisoning

Amy Winehouse Cause of Death: Alcohol Poisoning

A coroner's report has finally revealed the cause of Amy Winehouse's death: alcohol poisoning. British coroner Suzanne Greenway told a London court Wednesday that the "Rehab" singer's blood-alcohol level at the time of her death was as much as five times the legal drunk-driving limit.

"She had consumed sufficient alcohol... and the unintended consequence of such potentially fatal levels was her sudden and unexpected death," Greenaway said. She deemed Winehouse's passing a "death by misadventure," with the official cause listed as "alcohol toxicity."

Greenway added that two large bottles and one small bottle of vodka were discovered in the bedroom of Winehouse's North London home, where the singer was found dead on July 23 at the age of 27.

Before her death, Winehouse had reportedly tried to go cold turkey and abstain from alcohol. This led the singer's family to suggest that she died of alcohol withdrawal. As the coroner's report concludes, however, Winehouse suffered a relapse toward the end, and her return to drinking -- not drug use -- caused her death.

The testimony of Winehouse's doctor, Christina Romete, was in line with the coroner's findings. Earlier on Wednesday, she told the court that she had seen Winehouse the day before her death, and Amy had indeed started to drink again after a period of abstinence.

Romete described Winehouse as "tipsy" but "calm" and "able to hold a conversation" during her checkup. The physician said she had no reason to believe that Amy's passing was anything but an accident. "She didn't want to die," said Romete. "She was looking forward to the future."

Winehouse's father Mitch and mother Janis were onhand for the coroner's verdict -- and seem glad to have a bit of closure.

"It is some relief we finally found out what happened to Amy," Winehouse's family said in a statement to CNN. "We understand there was alcohol in her system when she passed away; it is likely a build up of alcohol in her system over a number of days. The court heard that Amy was battling hard to conquer her problems with alcohol and it is a source of great pain to us that she could not win in time."

Black Keys' 'Lonely Boy' Video: Dancing Fool

Oddly compelling clip gives us the first listen to their new single and showcases some seriously funky dance moves.

Perhaps not content to let Coldplay's Chris Martin soak up all the glory for the unicycle skills he showcases in his band's new "Paradise" video, on Wednesday (October 26), the Black Keys unveiled their own delightfully odd video, for "Lonely Boy." And let's just say: It's your move, Mr. Martin.

The "Lonely" clip may or may not be the actual video for the first single from the Keys' El Camino album (a spokesperson for their label, Nonesuch, did not respond to MTV News' request for comment at press time, though the fact that it's titled as a "first listen" leads us to believe there's a proper clip to follow). While it features little more than one fabulously funky gentleman and his dazzling array of dance moves, it is truly amazing to behold. Basically, it validates the existence of the entire Internet.

Mostly because, dang, can this dude dance. The Twist, the Carlton, even an MJ thrown in for good measure, he does it all, getting down in what appears to be the garage of a used car dealership (probably the same one Bob Odenkirk works at) while "Lonely Boy" blasts in the background. In fact, he even mouths most of the lyrics and acts a few of them out for us too. Much like the garage it is filmed in, this video is full-service.

While, sure, it would be easy to write the "Lonely Boy" clip off as just another viral video, that would be selling it short. It is a deceptively brilliant, oddly compelling and cleverly handmade thing, the kind of vid that practically begs to be watched over and over again (and believe me, I've spent the entire afternoon doing just that). There's not only an uninhibited joy to the man's moves, it doesn't hurt matters that the song is pretty fantastic too: a herky-jerky, down-and-dirty boogie powered by some raunchy guitar and a keening organ.

If anything, it makes me excited to hear even more of El Camino, which is out December 6. No word on whether the gentleman in the "Lonely Boy" video will be involved in any future promotion, but I've got my fingers crossed. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to watch this thing again. And again.

What do you think of the "Lonely Boy" video? Let us know in the comments!

Heather Morris Experimented with Girls

Heather Morris Experimented with Girls

Turns out that Heather Morris's girl-on-girl chemistry is just as strong off-screen as it is on Glee. Though the 24-year-old actress seems giddily content in her long-term relationship with boyfriend Taylor Hubbell, Morris admits in the new issue of Seventeen magazine that she did dabble with the ladies during her high-school days.

"Yeah. Mostly for guys' attention when I was in high school," Morris replies, when asked if she's ever engaged in girl-on-girl make-out sessions. "One time I did it when I was curious with a friend, but she wasn't my best friend."

Well, that explains why Morris didn't feel uncomfortable following the lesbian storyline between her character Brittany and Naya Rivera's Santana on Glee. Though Brittany is currently dating Artie on the show, she was in a relationship with Santana in previous seasons, and we're thinking that storyline is far from dead.

But don't expect Morris to start playing for the other team in real life. As she recently told Fitness magazine, she's majorly into Hubbell, 23 -- so much so, that she'd give up her career for him. "I want to marry Taylor and have kids with him," she said. "I love acting, but if it affects my relationship, then I won't continue doing it."

Glee fans certainly hope it doesn't come to that, but it's hard not to root for Morris and Hubbell -- especially after hearing how they got together.

"My boyfriend and I knew of each other in high school, but we didn't know each other," Morris tells Seventeen. "He was a year younger than I was, so after I moved, he messaged me on MySpace, asking 'When you come back, do you want to hang out?' And I was like, 'You're so cute, I'd love to!'"

Beyonce's Team Shoots Down Fake Baby-Bump Rumors

Publicist calls rumors 'stupid, ridiculous and false.'
By Gil Kaufman

Beyoncé has had to deal with dozens of scurrilous, absurd and outlandish rumors over the course of her career. And like most stars, she has ignored the majority of them, responded to some and mostly just let the talkers talk. But after the Internet blew up earlier this week with rumors that the pregnant singer was sporting what some were calling a "fake" baby bump during a recent TV appearance, enough was enough.

Beyoncé's publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, told ABC News on Tuesday that the allegations are "stupid, ridiculous and false." The rumors were sparked by an appearance Beyoncé made on Australia's "Sunday Night HD" in which her midsection seemed to deflate and fold over in an odd manner when she sat down for an interview while wearing a loose-fitting red dress.

It was during that appearance that Beyoncé — who revealed her pregnancy — at the 2011 VMAs confirmed that the child she is expecting with hubby Jay-Z is due in February. "I just feel like it's time and I'm very grateful that God has blessed me with the biggest gift any human can have," B said during the interview. "If there's any time, right now is the time, and I'm so happy."

Before the bump-troversy erupted, Beyoncé told Harper's Bazaar that she doesn't get worked up over gossip. "I am finally at the stage in my life where I am not so concerned with other people's opinions about my life decisions," she said. "It is really liberating to know what I want, to know what truly makes me happy."

And while the super-couple have always kept their private life off limits, the "Countdown" singer did reveal a bit about her relationship with Jigga in the November issue of the magazine.

"We took our time and developed an unbreakable friendship before we got married. ... But like anything great and successful in your life, marriage takes hard work and sacrifice," she said. "It has to be something both you and your husband deeply want. The best thing about marriage is the amount of growth you have because you can no longer hide from your insecurities. There's someone right there calling you out on your flaws and building you up when you need the support. If you are with the right person, it brings out the best version of you."

Kate Hudson Goes Brunette for Movie Role

Kate Hudson Goes Brunette for Movie Role

Kate Hudson is taking on a new hue. The 32-year-old actress has been photographed on the New York City set of her upcoming thriller, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, sporting a brand-new brunette hairdo!

Though it's most likely a wig, the dark brown color was a starling but welcome change from Hudson's usual blond hair. Judging by her costume, Hudson's character in the film might be a bit frumpy, but she's totally rocking the new hair style.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist, the adaptation of Mohsin Hamid's hit book of the same name, is being directed by Mira Nair and is scheduled to hit theaters in 2013. Hudson was spotted shooting scenes with Riz Ahmed, who plays the movie's main character Changez, a man whose life is inexorably changed by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Hudson plays a woman with whom Changez has a love affair; Liev Schreiber and Kiefer Sutherland round out the cast.

The Reluctant Fundamentalist is Hudson's first movie since she and her fiancé, 32-year-old Muse frontman Matt Bellamy, welcomed their son Bingham in July. Hudson also has a 7-year-old son named Ryder with her ex-husband, Black Crowes lead singer Chris Robinson.
