Port Vila, Vanuatu (PressExposure) June 01, 2009 -- No one knew the name of 48 year-old dowdy singing spinster, Susan Boyle just eight weeks ago. Now she has become a global star and a household word, with one of the most viewed videos in the history of the Internet. Sadly however, more media has spent more time on Susan's appearance, (or lack of), than giving full due to her singing talent.
Some commentators saw the story of Susan's instant success as a rebuke to people's inclination to judge the physical appearance, rather than what is found on the inside. When Susan faced a hostile audience she proved everyone dramatically wrong. "Modern society is too quick to judge people on their appearances. There is not much you can do about it; it is the way they think; it is the way they are. But maybe this could teach them a lesson, or set an example", says Susan.
Police were summoned to assess a woman under the Mental Health Act, around 6.p.m. the day after the final of Britain's Got Talent, at the hotel where Susan Boyle was staying. While not openly revealing it was Susan Boyle, the woman was voluntarily taken by ambulance, to a London Priory Clinic.
"Following Saturday night's show, Susan is exhausted and emotionally drained", said a spokesman for the TV show. "She has been seen by her private GP who supports her decision to take a few days out for rest and recovery. We offer her our ongoing support and wish her a speedy recovery".
Susan took second place to a street dancing troupe in the television competition, when she once again gave her moving rendition of âI Dreamed A Dream'. "For me, she has been the show's greatest discovery. I am only sorry the tidal wave of publicity caused people to get bored or irritated and decided not to vote for her", says Britain's Got Talent judge, Piers Morgan.
In the week before the finale, Susan Boyle boiled over twice publicly, revealing the massive pressure she was under. Susan was also deeply concerned over her an accident where her favourite 31 year-old niece collapsed, after giving birth to a baby boy last month and was rushed to hospital. Medics said the niece, Jacquelene, had fallen down the stairs in her Bathgate home. It would seem she is suffering from a blood problem.
Hollywood has already made Susan some offers. Simon Cowell, owner and judge of Britain's Got Talent said, "Susan is a very special person", but it will remain to be seen if Simon Cowell will bring Susan under a recording contract, as he did with Paul Potts, an earlier winner. Or maybe Susan will make it to West End musicals. There is a rumour that Boyle is to soon head off on a Britain's Got Talent Tour with other stars of the show. An insider of Britain's Got Talent says Susan is in line to make approximately $10 million from TV advertising and record deals.
