Halloween has come and gone, but that doesn't mean the jump-scares are over.

Universal Studios Hollywood made sure to continue scaring the living daylights out of mortals past All Hallow's Eve as part of their annual Halloween Horror Nights event that just wrapped up on Sunday.


And Ellen DeGeneres took advantage of the opportunity to laugh at recording artist and actress Lizzo as she navigated one of the park's scary mazes with the Ellen DeGeneres Show's executive producer Andy Lassner.

Lassner—who has a reputation on Ellen for being reliably startled—and the "Truth Hurts" singer tip-toed through the "Pandora's Cabinet of Curiosities" maze and delivered with their terrified reactions.

The talk-show host shared what has become an annual Halloween tradition with the entertaining haunted maze footage.

She introduced the segment by telling her studio audience:

"I recently sent my producer Andy to go look at a house. Unfortunately for him, it was a haunted house, and we said, 'Let's send Lizzo.'"

This is how their tour went down.

It was a riot from the start as Lizzo proclaimed "We're about to rock this b*tch!" and Andy echoed the cocky sentiment seconds before jumping out of his skin thanks to a demonic entity.

The team dove in through the maze, and Lizzo greeted the apparating ghouls and lycans with the middle finger and plenty of bleeped-out expletives.

In between the unpredictable scares, she filled moments of deafening silence by invoking a higher power to calm her, saying, "Thank you, Jesus, Thank you, Jesus," while Lassner responded with, "Jewish! Jewish!"

After surviving the torment, Lizzo explained her reactions later on Twitter, letting people know what they saw on camera wasn't close to what it was like being there.

Lizzo posted:

"It looks waaaay less scary than it was... don't get it twisted... w/out that light it was a nightmare."

Umm-hmm.

Whatever you say, Lizzo.

Lassner, who was no help as a companion and at one point scolded Lizzo telling her not to "f*****g run away from me," later joked:

"It was an honor to protect you."

Classic Andy.


One of the highlights included Lizzo twerking her way out of a situation and leaving Lassner behind.




They conquered, although Lassner may have lost a tooth and Lizzo almost lost her weave after stumbling to the ground in fear from the final jump-scare.





While they escaped without injury, we were left in stitches.

Thanks, Ellen and team!

What would Harry do? Who would Harry be? What wold be his "normal" profession? Maybe one day we'll find out. At the moment J.K. Rowling doesn't seem interested in continuing Harry's story. So fans are left to ponder mere "what ifs." And the Potter fanatics are definitely creative about what Harry would face in life.

Whether it's participating in a Throwback Thursday, giving an internet flex or visually name-dropping Rosa Parks, it's been a busy week for Chandler Cosey.

On Monday, Cosey posted what at first appeared to be an innocent Throwback-Thursday-style comparison between baby Chandler in Detroit to an all-grown-up Cosey in Philadelphia.

Followers on Twitter, however, weren't so easily fooled.

Commuting is not fun. People do weird things in public transportation so it comes as no surprise to hear subway horror stories like this one.

A commuter has been criticized for cleaning his teeth and spitting on the floor of a busy London Tube (subway) station during rush hour. And, it is gross.
