Rapper/actor LL Cool J joined “Extra’s” Maria Menounos at The Grove on Thursday, where the “NCIS: Los Angeles” star opened up about the controversy surrounding his "Accidental Racist" duet with country singer Brad Paisley.
LL explained, “The fact that there is so much controversy is proof that the conversation needed to be had. In clarifying, my intent is in no way saying that slavery is okay, that would be heartless.”

"I will never forget this moment, because in this moment, everything I have ever wanted has happened to me," Swift said holding back tears.
The 19-year-old was chosen over Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney and George Straight for the award. She thanked her fellow nominees, saying, "Every single person in that category let me open up for them this year. Thanks so much, y'all. I love you."

Swift made her own reference to West when she won the Female Vocalist award. She concluded her acceptance speech with a jab, " I want to thank everyone in this room tonight... for not running up on this stage during this speech."
