    Now It Can Be Told: Sweet Caroline Was...

    Neil Diamond has now offically told all about his hit song, "Sweet Caroline", the 1969 hit now sung at Boston Red Sox games among others. In an interview with AP, Diamond says the "Caroline" that he sang about was none other than...

    Caroline Kennedy, of whom he saw in a picture of her back in 1969 as a teenager on horseback in Time Magazine, which prompted him to write the song. He performed the song at Ms. Kennedy's (now Caroline Kennedy Schlossburg) 50th birthday recently, and was touched by the honor, according to Diamond.

    This comes hot off the heels of the recent revolation by Warren Beatty that Carly Simon wrote "You're So Vein" about him, and that secret was only shared up until then by Ms. Simon and NBC Sports/Olympics president Dick Ebersol, who won the right to keep it secret several years ago at an charity auction.

    I thought everyone always knew that You're So Vain was written about Warren Beatty. My mom told me that when I was little.

    The Sweet Caroline revelation was a non-surprise. My mom called that one, too.

    Yeah, I knew that a long time ago too.

    Well, that was always the rumor. But it's now being confirmed.

    He must have REALLY pissed her off.
