Sam Smith has donated a third of the expected sales for a concert at the Sydney Opera House next year to Australia's same-sex marriage campaign, according to reports. The Oscar-winning singer is one of a number of stars urging people to say yes to same-sex marriage, and last month shared a post on Instagram about the vote, telling Australians: "You have a special special place in my heart."
OJ Simpson is free. The former football star who spent the last nine years in prison for a 2008 armed robbery and kidnapping in Las Vegas was paroled early Sunday, a Nevada prison official told the Associated Press. Simpson, 70, had been in the Lovelock Correctional Center north of Reno before being transferred to the High Desert site for his release.
