Nothing is a more fun cultural zeitgeist indicator than what folks wear for Halloween. And, of course, musical personalities are prime fodder. So here are our predictions for what will be the most common music costumes this year.

Of course, despite the fact that we specifically cautioned you against "Slutoween," we know some of you believe sluttiness is the holiday's true essence, so we've added some tips to help you along.

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez

Why this costume will be popular: The Biebs and his babe are pop's current golden couple. They're adorable, and ridiculous.

What You'll Need:

*Just remember: the male in your couple has got to be Selena, and the female has got to be Justin

*Justin wig

*Oversize tee, jeans and flashy kicks

*One understated piece of bling

*The boyfriend's drag: dark wig, hoop earrings and sparkly gown

MTV Riff Raff a.k.a. Riff Raff SODMG

Why this costume will be popular: Because this Soulja Boy-affiliated white L.A. rapper has more bling than a gold prospector.

What you'll need:

  • Not a shirt
  • A bunch of temporary or drawn-on tattoos of the BET, NBA and MTV logos
  • Jack-o-lantern bling (no made-at-the-mall shit)
  • An extravagant gold watch
  • Some fresh piggly wigglys
  • Ridiculous neon oversized glasses
  • A ballpoint pen, to draw on zig-zagging facial hair
  • Cornrows
  • Grillz

How to make it slutty: Appear on an MTV reality show.

Why this costume will be popular: The pint-sized rapper has been one of the year's most hyped and controversial artists, taking L.A. and the Internet by storm with "Gucci Gucci" and her White Girl Mob. She even has her own video game. Love her or hate her, there's no denying girl's got style -- who doesn't want an excuse to rock Minnie Mouse ears and a bedazzled Glock?

What you'll need:

  • Liquid eyeliner
  • A nose ring
  • A crop top and baggy jeans
  • A sick gold chain
  • Doorknocker earrings
  • Throwback/hipster glasses
  • A toy gun, covered in jewels and Hello Kitty stickers
  • Swag

How To Make It Slutty: Add the phallic popsicle, duh.
