This is how you get away with a rebuttal!

Viola Davis made history last week when she became the first black woman to win the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama for her wonderful work on How to Get Away with Murder.

Well, as we reported, after her win Viola got some pretty harsh criticism regarding her speech, specifically from fellow ABC actress General Hospital's Nancy Lee Grahn.

In fact, the soap opera star went as far as calling it a "venue for racial opportunity."

Clearly Viola wasn't having that nonsense, however, because she responded to Nancy's initial comments, saying:

Little Mix make a statement at the Pride Of Britain Awards!

Zayn Malik, who??

Just a day after he posted a sexy new selfie with a mystery blonde, Perrie Edwards hit the red carpet at the Pride Of Britain Awards on Monday!

And of course, she was joined by her Little Mix girls! It's a good thing she has such a great support system!

Though we definitely didn't expect the starlet to go in the route of this baggy Alexis two-piece with sheer panels. It's an interesting choice, especially since we're not so sure it flatters her petite frame.

Meanwhile, Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirlwall, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock wowed in three classic looks!

Do U have a fave???

Taylor Swift Could Lose To Her Own 1989 Songs At The Grammys Thanks To Ryan Adams' Cover Album! Awkward!

Things could get pretty awkward at this year's Grammys

So you know how Ryan Adams had that completely brilliant idea to cover all of Taylor Swift's 1989 album and release his own version this week?

Well as it turns out, because his 1989 came out before Sept. 30, he's now eligible to compete against Tay Tay at this year's Grammys!

So… Taylor could hypothetically lose some major awards to songs she wrote herself! Awk!

Video: Watch These X Factor Contestants Forget Taylor's Lyrics!

Luckily, there's no bad blood between the two singers, because Taylor herself tweeted out her support for Ryan's cover album leading up to its release.

The Recording Academy decided on Friday that the newer 1989 was different enough from Taylor's original to qualify it as a work of its own — aside from the fact that it cannot be nominated for songwriting.

Basically, this means that Ryan put together a compilation album, it just only happened to be 100 percent T-Swift. LOLz!!!

Which 1989 do U think will come out on top??

One of our favorite parts of the Emmys this year was Tracy Morgan's touching surprise appearance following his devastating June 2014 limo accident.

The comedian, whose secret appearance was kept under wraps for weeks, surprised the audience with a funny yet heartfelt speech that received a standing ovation!

But the Saturday Night Live alum's plan was almost ruined by none other than Paula Deen!

Since the award show, the 46-year-old is already back in business! It's been reported that Tracy is in talks to star alongside Ice Cube and Charlie Day in the upcoming comedy Fist Fight!
