Bristol Palin’s ‘modest’ ‘DWTS’ costume revealed

While some of her “Dancing With The Stars” competitors opted for siren-red above-the-knee ensembles, Bristol Palin appears to have kept her word on donning a comparatively more modest costume...well, when it comes to length in the front, at least.

The 19-year-old single mom told People that she thought she'd "be the most dressed [contestant and have] the most modest outfits for sure because that's who I am," and in a promo shot for the show, Palin is wearing a black, ankle-length dress with a relatively demure neckline.

The costume isn’t without some sexiness, however, as the dress also bears quite a bit of lace, fringe and ruffles.

Joe Perry: 'Idol' is one step above 'Ninja Turtles'

At least one person isn’t thrilled about rocker Steven Tyler possibly becoming a judge on “American Idol.”

In an interview with the Calgary Herald, Joe Perry took a few swipes at both his band’s lead singer and the show that could very well be Tyler’s new gig.

"[‘American Idol’ is] a reality show designed to get people to watch that station and sell advertising," Perry told the paper. "It's one step above (Teenage Mutant) Ninja Turtles.”

Taylor Swift gets split reaction from music stars

If you ask Nelly, Taylor Swift has validated his "cool," but if you ask Chris Robinson, she’s the personification of the faux music star.

In an interview with Billboard, Nelly responded to an admiring tweet from Swift. The 20 year-old country-pop music star took to Twitter last week with praise for the St. Louis rapper’s latest single, “Just a Dream.”

“I’m so in love with that new Nelly song,” Swift said about the newest offering from the 36 year-old, whose latest album "5.0" is slated for release in mid-November.

Fall TV gives a sense of déjà vu

There aren’t a ton of original ideas out there in the land of fall TV, but that’s good news for those of you looking for more of the same.

We’ve compiled a list of new shows that sound a lot like… well, old shows, so you can see which match up to your TV tastes.

If you miss "Lost," then try out "The Event"

With an equally ambiguous title, “The Event” is looking to fill the void that “Lost” has left. The main character works to expose a big cover-up, which effects “an eclectic band of strangers” (can you say Jack, Hurley and Sawyer?). Also, this conspiracy could change the fate of mankind forever. (Premieres on NBC September 20 at 9 p.m.)

Sean Penn responds to Wyclef

It’s been weeks since Wyclef Jean announced his intention to run for president of Haiti – and was subsequently not approved to do so – but the musician still appears to be locked in a "he said, he said" with actor and activist Sean Penn.

The latest back-and-forth between the two was sparked on Friday, when Jean let loose a few incendiary lyrics towards Penn while performing at a concert in New York.

“I got a message for Sean Penn,” Jean sang, “Maybe he ain't see me in Haiti because he was too busy sniffing cocaine.”

Hulk Hogan hospitalized for back spasms

The Hulk recently landed in the hospital because of his back, but hopefully the wrestler’s health problems won’t sideline him for long.

In a video posted to his Twitter account, Hulk Hogan confirmed that he suffered “a major spasm from my hip all the way up the middle of my back,” adding that it “just totally overwhelmed me.”

Hogan said his trip to the ER wasn’t surgery-related, and was hopeful that the physicians could “give me something to calm this down.”

His rep told CNN Tuesday, "He is there because of back spasms but will be fine." Hogan added in a video posted Tuesday morning that he had a "bunch of tests" lined up for the day, but his back is "feeling pretty good" - at the very least, "better than yesterday."  (FYI, if you click the link to that video, you'll get an eyeful of what he calls his "potty chair." Don't say we didn't warn you.)

He also says that when he gets back on his feet, he's going to "get real dangerous." Again - don't say we didn't warn you.
