Halloween: The one night grown men and women have a legitimate excuse to look like clowns. Call us crazy, but we stopped dressing up for Halloween at 13. We still love you and your ridiculous costume. We really do.
That's why we've taken the time to offer some wonderful ideas that will keep you from making a complete tomfoolery of yourself this Halloween. Read on for five music celebrity costumes to avoid like the plague.
5. Kanye West
Yeah, nothing says "classy" like shutter shades. Would you like to know what else a Kanye getup says? "Gaze thee upon this certified bag of douche."
Better Idea: Stuff cotton ball in your mouth, don a fake beard, and go as Rick Ross.
4. Elvis Presley
As tempting as it is to don a shiny Elvis jumpsuit for Halloween, trust us here and ditch this one. You'll end up looking like a cliché wrapped up in a human being.
Better Idea: Get a blowout and go as Antoine Dodson.
3. Justin Bieber
Leave the loopy Bieber imitation to Tom Brady. Sure, Brady now has the worst hairdo in professional sports. Look, the guy is banging Gisele Bundchen, he can rock a retro frohawk and a gold tooth if he wants.
Better Idea: Glue rug strands to your forehead and go as Donald Trump
2. Michael Jackson
You really need an explanation here? OK, here it is: Lame and grossly unimaginative. Oh, and did we mention how lame it is? We know you've been practicing the moonwalk and crotch-grab all summer and can't wait to impress your friends, but there's evidence showing that you're a full-grown adult. Do you really want to be "that guy"?

Better Idea: Go as Sandra Bullock.
1. Lady Gaga
Thanks to Lady Gaga, the meat dress is going to be a fixture at Halloween parties from now on. If you're one of those planning to assault everyone with an edible item, please consider staying home. But if you need the attention so badly, you should make yourself useful and go as a bacon dress instead. Kidding. Don't do that, either.
Better Idea: Stick two large hams in the back of your pants and go as Nicki Minaj.
