Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and Justin Timberlake were among the stars at nighttime event benefitting amfAR (Foundation for AIDS research). The event paid tribute to celebrated fashion designer Tom Ford, who was presented the amFAR Award of Inspiration by pop star and fashion icon, Rihanna. The event raised over 3 million dollars (USD) for AIDS research. Polish prosecutors said on Thursday (October 30) they had interviewed filmmaker Roman Polanski in connection with a U.S. extradition request over a 1977 sex crime conviction, but decided not to detain him, the Polish state news agency reported. The filmmaker pleaded guilty in 1977 to having unlawful sex with 13-year-old girl during a photoshoot in Los Angeles, fueled by champagne and drugs. Polanski served 42 days in jail as part of a 90-day plea bargain in 1977. He fled the United States the following year, believing the judge hearing his case could overrule the deal and put him in jail for years. British rock legend Phil Collins brought his massive collection of Alamo artifacts on Tuesday (October 28) to the San Antonio site those in the Lone Star State call the "Shrine of Texas Liberty" for a museum that will be named in his honor. The items include the fringed leather pouch that Davy Crockett carried from his home in Tennessee into Texas, then a part of the Republic of Mexico, and the Alamo. A measure is set to be introduced in the Texas legislature when it meets in January to declare Collins to be an "Honorary Texan."
