Susan Boyle was invited to perform a Lou Reed song, Perfect Day, on America’s Got Talent, and producers waited until Boyle was ready to go onstage to ask Lou’s permission. Unfortunately Lou said he is not a Boyle fan, and refused to give permission.
Like a true professional cry baby, Boyle did not have an alternative song to perform, so she broke down into tears, and continued to cry even as she boarded a flight at LAX going to London.
Show business can be cruel, but a song change is more like a tiny speed bump, yet Boyle can’t handle it. This woman has no business being in show business. Just record some albums once a year, and stay secluded in a little European village somewhere. We don’t want Boyle doing anymore damage to her fragile mental health.
Susan Boyle (48) performed live on American television, then enjoyed a meet-and-greet with fans at the Rock Centre cafe in New York’s Rockefeller Centre.
Moments after Boyle was presented with a patchwork quilt knitted together by hundreds of people from 28 countries including the UK, US, Australia, Mexico, Japan and Antarctica, she became increasingly withdrawn and started to tremble and suck her thumb. Then, visibly overcome with emotion, she bowed her head and began to cry.
Just as suddenly as she broke into tears, Boyle suddenly jumped up and started dancing. Almost seems bipolar. A spokesman for Miss Boyle said:
"She was just overjoyed and extremely touched with the reception she had had from everyone in America."
It seems Miss Boyle is having a great deal of difficulty dealing with her new found fame, which isn’t a huge surprise considering her very humble beginnings.
Boyle’s CD is expected to sell somewhere between 400,000 to 500,000 copies just this week, making it the fastest selling album of the year and outstripping some of the world’s biggest stars including Robbie Williams and Mariah Carey.
Simon Cowell is even said to be preparing to film a movie about Boyles life.
Besides all the success Boyle is now experiencing she also has the unwavering support of her fans, and admirers from around the world.
If Susan Boyle can stay out of the mental hospital she might be able to collect big bucks for her performances. Boyle’s agent says she is charging $190,000 for a 12 minute performance. As one newscaster pointed out, that cost seems ridiculous to justify especially with the recession.
On the Britain’s Got Talent tour Boyle’s appearances have been sketchy as she takes time off to collect herself. The excuse is that she is having trouble adjusting to the fame, but we think it has more to do with her inner diva.
The dance group called Diversity won Britain’s Got Talent. Their finale performance was amazing. It’s hard to beat incredible creativity like that, which is why Susan Boyle came in second.
Susan Boyle came from obscurity, then went into an emotional profanity riddled tirade recently, and after the competition mentally collapsed from exhaustion. Fame is hard to take. There were psychologists before the final show that said Boyle should not compete, because she may suffer a psychotic break. Boyle has checked into a facility that some reports suggest is a psychiatric clinic. We wish her well, and a speedy recovery.
As for Diversity, we hope someone hires the choreographer that put all their great performances together.
