Briefly: Neil Diamond, Justin Timberlake, Ben Affleck

April 25, 2013

Brief news from elsewhere:

Well this is nice: Neil Diamond says he will donate proceeds from the newly surging sales of “Sweet Caroline” to marathon bombing victims, reports AP. Sales were up 600 percent to 19,000 this week — though it is crazy to think that in a normal week he was still moving 2,800 units of 43-year-old song. Dying to know how much money that is. (AP)
