Over the years, Katy Perry has dressed for Halloween as everything from a Flamin' Hot Cheeto, to Freddie Mercury, to a fried egg.  But for this year, the singer -- who also once dressed up as hand sanitizer for American Idol -- says she's got something that may top even those looks.

“For Halloween, I definitely have a very topical costume,” she tells Vogue. “I like to hit the summary of the year on the head, and it’s very goofy as I go. There’s two ways to go, either a little bit slutty or a little bit weird, and I always tend to lean weird.”

And speaking of costumes, Katy also tells Vogue that she's busy prepping for her Vegas residency show, PLAY, by "creating these incredible costumes...that are larger than life and really lean into the Vegas-ness.”  And Katy's daughter, Daisy, will be getting into the dressing-up fun as well, she says.

"The truth is I’m always on Etsy looking for a handcrafted cute moment," Katy reveals. "I’ve favorited a couple of gingerbread dresses for my daughter. Just adorable things.”

This week, though, you can see Katy dressed in comfy sweats and denim in her new commercials for Gap's latest holiday campaign.

"It’s a bit of a full-circle moment because my first-ever paying job, aside from cleaning houses or something like that, was at a Gap in Santa Barbara,” Katy says. “I would fold the fleeces during the holidays."

"The Gap had these playlists that had all these up-and-coming artists in it. Like, I dreamed about making that playlist," she adds. "The idea that I get to be in a Gap commercial, it was a bucket list moment.”

Adele may be living in L.A. now, but she still knows her British foods.

The Tottenham native sat down at "Adele's Cafe" with British Vogue for a blind taste test of some traditional British dishes. She was asked to guess classic meals like a full English breakfast and fish and chips, desserts including Banoffee Pie and Eton Mess, and some lesser known fare like Spotted Dick -- which, in spite of its cheeky name, is a steamed pudding with dried fruit.

As the "Easy on Me" singer tested her food knowledge, she shared memories connected with certain dishes. She reminisced about working in a cafe when she was younger and how she learned to cook with Jamie Oliver recipes. Her specialties include spicy pasta and Sunday roast, which she makes for her son, Angelo.

Adele also revealed her obsession with Heinz ketchup. "I carry little sachets of Heinz ketchup everywhere with me," she says. "Beyonce has hot sauce in her bag, I have Heinz ketchup."

In the end, she successfully guessed eight out of the 12 dishes.

"I mean, it's food! Just because I lost weight, I know everything there is to know about food," Adele joked. "I eat so much food still."

Julia Michaels dropped her debut album, Not In Chronological Order, earlier this year, and she’s itching to get out and perform those songs on the road for her fans. But right now, she tells ABC Audio, touring isn’t in the plan.

“I don't have a timeline right now, and I don't want to get anybody's hopes up and say a time and then let anybody down,” she says. “So I won't. But I do miss them very much. They know that I'm doing everything I can to get to them and I can't wait until the time does come.”

For now, she’s enjoying watching her boyfriend, fellow artist JP Saxe, on his own tour. So is she feeling the FOMO?

“No, I'm very, very grateful to be home, and I'm happy that I get to watch him live out his very first tour and see all his dreams come true,” Julia says.

Though Michaels may be putting touring on hold, she's finding new and innovative ways to connect with her fans at home. On Wednesday, she launched a new partnership with Campbell’s, featuring a special QR code on the brand’s soup labels that unlocks a new track.

The track is a cover of "Just One Look" by Doris Troy, inspired by Julia’s love of listening to ‘50s and ‘60s music while she cooks. The music is paired with her favorite Campbell's recipe -- grilled cheese and tomato soup, something she says her mom made for her growing up and JP still makes for her to this day.

Fans will also have the opportunity to submit their own cooking-inspired song for the chance to win $20,000 and a partnership with Campbell’s. The Sounds Good Tonight SoundCloud contest launches on Nov. 15.

When Elton John announced Wednesday that he was going to be in an UberEats commercial with Lil Nas X, we didn't expect to get three separate commercials -- and three sets of fabulous costumes, to boot.

Each ad is part of UberEats' ongoing "Tonight I'll Be Eating" campaign, in which celebrities detail what they've ordered and had delivered via the online platform.  The first one, "Rides," shows Elton riding a coin-operated kiddie rocket ride, while Nas is on a similar one in the shape of a horse.

After each singer describes their food order, Elton asks Nas to loan him some money to gets his ride started, but Nas doesn't understand him because Elton uses the British slang words for money: "bones," "lolly" and "bangers and mash."

Finally, an exasperated Elton says, "I don't have any money!" to which Nas responds, in a British accent, "You don't LOOK broke!"

The second clip, "Mayo vs. Ketchup," features Elton announcing that he's ordered a club sandwich with fries, with mayo on the side.  Nas, who's sitting in a clump of flowers wearing a Louis XIV-style wig and playing a sitar -- because why not? -- responds, "Mayonnaise? On fries?" Elton responds, "A little judgy, don't you think?" to which Nas adds, "That's weird."

The third clip, "Legendary Looks," features Nas dressed in the multi-colored spangled feather outfit Elton wore on The Muppet Show, while Elton's wearing a pink cowboy outfit like the ones Nas wore while promoting his song "Old Town Road."

"You look amazing!" gushes Elton.

"No, YOU look amazing," responds Nas.

"Thank you," replies Elton.

"Thank you," says Nas. They go back and forth before Elton finally says, "You're welcome."

As previously reported, Elton and Nas have recorded a duet with will appear on both their upcoming albums.

How much would you pay for an ice cream sundae?  Selena Gomez is hoping you'll shell out 30 bucks for one of hers.

Selena, who's a celebrity partner and investor in the New York City eatery Serendipity 3, has introduced The Selena Sundae to the menu. The $29.95 price tag gets you three scoops of Selena's own Cookies & Cream Remix flavor, as well as banana, hot fudge, cream-filled Cookie Crumbles, Pink Sugar, whipped cream and, of course, a cherry on top.

But this isn't just some evil plan to empty your wallet and raise your blood sugar: It's for a good cause. Ten percent of the proceeds the Selena Sundae will go to the star's Rare Impact Fund, which is dedicated to expanding mental health services.

"My memories at Serendipity date back to when I was a kid and I came to New York City for the first time," Selena says in a statement. "I've always loved this restaurant, and I am excited to celebrate its reopening by adding a sundae I created to the menu."

Selena's new TV series Only Murders In the Building is streaming now on Hulu.
