Phillip Phillips Reveals Which Violent Halloween Activity He Finds "Therapeutic"

What's your favorite part of Halloween? Dressing up?  Trick-or-treating?  For Phillip Phillips, it's taking a knife and plunging it into the soft, yielding flesh...of a pumpkin.

For some reason it's very therapeutic for me." Wait, it's therapeutic to take a sharp knife and cut a pumpkin to pieces?  According to Phillip, yes.

Harry Styles Reveals What Made Him Barf

Remember that photo of Harry Styles throwing up on the side of a Los Angeles freeway a few weeks ago? Well, he's revealed what made him sick -- and it's not what people think. The 20-year-old One Direction singer says it had nothing to do with alcohol or partying. He simply overexerted himself. "I'd been on a hike. I'd been on a very long hike. It was about three weeks ago, so I'm fine now," Styles said Wednesday during an interview on BBC Radio 1. He may be fine health-wise, but Harry's pretty disturbed by some fans' reaction to his…
