  Original Published: 12/9/2013 Susan Boyle says she has a form of autism and the Band "Heart" cancels on Seaworld because of a controversial documentary. For more on those stories, here's Martha Shade with your Hollywood Minute. Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle has Asperger's Syndrome. She made the revelation in Sunday's edition of The Observer newspaper. Boyle says as a child, she was told she had brain damage. It wasn't until last year she went to a specialist and learned it was Asperger's, a high-functioning from of autism. Boyle told the newspaper she hopes this announcement will lead people to treat her with more understanding. "Heart" is the latest band to cancel a performance at Seaworld because of the controversial CNN documentary "Blackfish." The film raises questions about safety and the humanity of whales in captivity, and profiles a 12,000 pound orca, who has killed three people, including a Seaworld trainer. Willie Nelson and the Barenaked Ladies have also canceled shows at the theme park. At the movies this past weekend, Box Office Tracker says "Frozen" was the big winner. It brought in over $31.6-million, bumping "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" to the number two spot. In a distant third was "Out of the Furnace."
