Boyle’s Blunder Live on US Telly!

Posted on November 30th, 2010 at 5:42 pm by    

Susan Boyle hit an embarrassing note in her career earlier today when she had to stop singing half way through performing a Christmas carol on American daytime show The View.

Looking like a rabbit caught in the headlights, Boyle cut short her performance of O Holy Night as she began to cough, she then apologized before asking producers: “Can we do that again?” clearly not realizing the show was going out live.

“Oh my God, beautiful,” said host Sherri Shepherd, as she rushed to Scottish star’s side with co-host Whoopi Goldberg, partially sparing the singer’s blushes.

But after confessing to having “a frog in my throat” the audience praised Boyle’s vocals with rapturous applaud.

All’s well that ends well, at least no one can ever accuse Susan Boyle of miming… Good on the little lass!

SuBo Picks Unknown Amateur Singer For Duet!

Posted on August 13th, 2010 at 2:42 pm by    

Susan Boyle has chosen someone to record a duet with, but this person is not anyone you have ever heard of. The Britain’s Got Talent star recently conducted an online talent search contest and chose one of thousands of entrants to join her in recording a duet for her next album The Gift.

SuBo picked an American mother-of-three named Amber Stassi. The Scottish singer called Stassi at home in New York to break the good news.

Regarding her decision, SuBo said: “I really wanted to give someone the opportunity I had. Amber is a remarkable and talented lady and I am really looking forward to singing with her.”

In reaction to being plucked from obscurity, Stassi, a 33-year-old paramedic, said: “We have had some hard times, if my father was here now he would be so proud, I know he’s here in spirit, but this is a chance to give my kids a good memory and maybe a chance at a better life.”

It appears Susan has made one of Amber’s dreams come true and has made a sincerely inspirational impact on Amber’s life. Go SuBo, go!

SuBo to Sing with Glee?

Posted on August 6th, 2010 at 8:46 am by    

Just days after Susan Boyle purchased a new £350,000 five-bedroom home in the Scottish county of West Lothian, rumours are swirling that the singer will be featured on the wildly popular musical telly series Glee. Ian Brennan, a co-executive producer and writer on the show, responded to the rumours while in attendance of actress Jane Lynch‘s recent unveiling of a Sue Sylvester wax figurine at Madame Tussauds in Hollywood.

Brennan said: “I’ve heard the same whispers but I can neither confirm nor deny.” The writer-producer added: “I think Susan is amazing, such an incredible, interesting and strange icon for everything [Glee] is about. It would be a perfect fit. I hope we can make it work.”

It sounds like SuBo has a lot to be gleeful for these days!

Elaine Paige Takes Yet Another Dig at SuBo…

Posted on April 14th, 2010 at 11:31 am by    

Outspoken musical theatre veteran, Elaine Paige has once again taken an enormous dig at Britain’s Got Talent star Susan Boyle and contestants alike for becoming overnight successes far too quickly.

Subo’s idol Elaine was her inspiration from the very first audition for Britain’s Got Talent.

Paige said on BBC Breakfast in the UK this morning: “With reality television things are very different.

Expressing that the show doesn’t allow new artists to learn as they rise through the ranks, Elaine said: “What I worry about for them is that it’s a fast track having to learn everything so quickly. They have to learn it in 16 weeks with all that pressure on them.”

Ok that’s a fair point Elaine, but there’s no need to single out poor old SuBo!

Susan sang duet ‘I Know Him So Well’ with Paige last year in a special show hosted by Piers Morgan about the reality TV star’s meteoric rise to fame.

Scottish born Susan recently received a paycheck of £4million after her debut album sold more than 8.5million copies since its release last year. Not bad for someone who was a complete nobody just a year ago, wouldn’t you agree Elaine?!

Referring to the extent of SuBo’s talent, Paige cheekily added: “She’s got a nice voice – a simple, straightforward voice.”

Ouch… I look forward to SuBo’s response on this one, Elaine sweetie, the gloves are off!

SuBo’s £4 Mil Birthday Payout – April Fools Day!

Posted on March 21st, 2010 at 5:10 am by    

What would you do if on April 1st you were told a check for millions was waiting in the mailbox you’d probably think it was an April fools joke, right? Well, not Susan Boyle, the singing sensation formally known as the ‘hairy angel’ is about to receive a whopping £4 million pound in royalties as part of her earnings for a years hard graft.

It doesn’t seem that long ago since she first appeared on Britain’s Got Talent – the series that propelled her to fame, when Subo walked onto the stage and sang her version of I Dreamed A Dream, a performance which stole the nations hearts.

Now on her upcoming 49th birthday she’ll receive an astonishing lottery-style payment after taking the world by storm.

The mega-bucks payout comes from the sales of her chart-topping debut album and countless international appearances, but according to close friends of the star, they say the money won’t change her one bit.

One close source said: “People have thought of Susan as a millionaire for months already because her album was released in November – but she hasn’t got it yet. It takes time for royalties to come through. She has been told it will be there for her birthday on April 1.

“Until now her management team has made sure she never wanted for anything. She has been receiving an allowance from Simon [Cowell], which has been more than enough to live on.

“But this is her long-awaited pay day finally arriving.”

I Dreamed a Dream, broke British chart records, selling 3.1 million copies in its first four weeks of release. It has since sold more than 8.5 million worldwide.

I say Bravo to SuBo; you are no April fool my dear… But you might want to invest in a good pair of tweezers when the money comes in!

Brit Stars Get Avatar-ed!

Posted on March 9th, 2010 at 12:42 pm by    

Hey Lil, why so blue?

These hilarious pics are the work of visual wiz Robert Paulson who’s given eighteen stars, including Lily Allen, Susan Boyle and Gordon Ramsay, an Avatar makeover.

And I don’t know about you, but I think Amy Winehouse looks pretty good as a Na’vi – the blue skin is a big improvement on the sallow complexion and scabby skin she was sporting at the height of her ‘troubles’ anyway!

Robert, 22, is a student in San Francisco who started the project after seeing the sci-fi smash, and each picture takes around two hours to complete.

He said: “I can never get the look of the yellow eyes, with their hypnotic irises and pupils and the Na’vi’s glowing dots to my satisfaction – yet. I must have spent over 200 hours on this project so far. But jokes aside, it has given me a huge appreciation of the skill and detail and genius of James Cameron and his team on a technical level.”

Robert says he’s just finished college and is now looking for a job. Maybe Jim can find him a spot on Avatar 2. You never know Robert… You never know!

SuBo’s Top Of The.. Er, Mops!

Posted on January 15th, 2010 at 9:38 am by    

According to The Sun newspaper today, Britain’s Got Talent singing sensation Susan Boyle suffered another bizarre public meltdown yesterday when she started singing and dancing into a mop at Heathrow airport.

SuBo apparently grabbed the mop from a cleaner and gave a chaotic impromptu performance, before using the mop to clean other passengers shoes.

After receiving complaints, British Airways then tried to calm her down, but Susan fled the Terminal 5 lounge shouting, “I’ve escaped, I’ve escaped.”

An onlooker told The Sun: “It was chaos. Susan was very restless and agitated from the minute she walked in and immediately started making a scene.

The source added, “She was singing and dancing around, shouting obscenities at full volume.”

Susan was on her way to Chicago to go on The Oprah Winfrey Show. In the end a BA staff member sat with her until it was time to board her flight.

This isn’t the first time SuBo has lost the plot and I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I don’t think SuBo is equipped to deal with the pressures of fame and it’s only a matter of time before she Boyles over again.

Ga-Ga’s goo-goo over SuBo!

Posted on January 1st, 2010 at 6:17 pm by    

Lady Gaga has confessed that she is a secret Susan Boyle fan; I mean talk about chalk and cheese!

The outrageous singer admitted, “I love Susan Boyle. She is my woman of the year. She has achieved more in this year than most artists will in a lifetime.”

Well, well, I wonder what the hairy angel will make of this?

Gaga added, “This time last year nobody even knew who she was and now she is knocking the world’s most established artists off the album and singles charts.” She continued, “Our styles are different. I don’t know if we could work together, but never say never. It would be great to work with somebody of that talent.”

Boyle has already won an army of loyal celebrity fans including OPRAH WINFREY, ELAINE PAIGE, DEMI MOORE and even the US president BARACK OBAMA with her rags to riches story, but Lady Gaga? I would have never have believed this if were not for my well- placed source in the Gaga camp who is, ahem, should I say, um, pretty well placed indeed…

Well, one thing’s for sure, at least they have one thing in common… the pair of them appear to be absolutely bonkers.

Gaga told a pal that she had followed Subo’s meteoric rise ever since she saw her first Britain’s Got Talent audition on popular website YouTube and has been a loyal fan ever since. The pal added, “Lady G would love to get the chance to perform with Subo as soon as possible.”

What a double act that would be eh, SuGa? GaBo? I love it, can’t wait!
