Hooked: Cosmo Doesn't Hide Adele; 'X Factor' Judge Covers Vegas
Hooked: Cosmo Doesn't Hide Adele; 'X Factor' Judge Covers Vegas

Time to get Hooked, our bite-sized roundup of fashion-drenched music news.

Adele Is December's Cosmo Girl

Adele shines in Cosmo with no black clothing in sight. The gorgeous singer is styled in a Dolce & Gabbana leopard-print and lace dress looking rather sexy. I am thrilled that Adele is toying with color and pattern and looking amazing while doing it. Her look is polished off with jewel earrings, nude nail polish, and her signature cat eye. It is refreshing to see Cosmo giving the plus-size star the same attention and focus as other cover girls. Rather then cropping the image around her face, much like the British Vogue cover which zoomed in on her face for its October 2011 issue, Cosmo revealed all of Adele's voluptuous bod.

What do you think about that leopard dress?

Justin Timberlake Going Folk?

The pop superstar is possibly getting ready to head to the big screen yet again. Timberlake's next possible on-screen role may land him on the set of the Coen Brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis." This new film takes place during the NYC folk scene of the '60s, and Justin would be cast as one of the folkies, but not the lead, which has already been given to "Drive" star Oscar Isaac. A source confirms to EW that the singer-actor has been offered a part. The new film is believed to start filming in 2012 in New York.

Nicole Scherzinger on the Cover of Vegas Magazine

The "X Factor" judge brings sexy back on the cover of Vegas magazine. The 33-year-old former Pussycat Doll displayed her stunning figure in a plunging drop backline dress. Inside the mag the singer opened up about how she longed to be the next Whitney Houston growing up and discussed her new album, "Killer Love," saying: "The album is fun and empowering and it makes you feel good, but it comes from heartbreak. I feel like a lot of people can relate to that."

"Killer Love" finally drops in the US on Dec. 6.
