Susan Boyle had worldwide fame foisted upon her when she turned up to audition for Britain’s Got Talent and blew the judges and television audience away. This sweet, mild-mannered Scottish virgin suddenly became a star.
The problem is that she couldn’t cope, and she ended up going to the Priory, a clinic for celebrities and rich people in London. After losing the final to dance troupe Diversity she basically lost it and needed a rest.
So, who broke Susan Boyle? This is the question asked in this original song by Scrappy Hood. Was it the judges? The journalists? ITV? Ant and Dec? The viewing public? It was all of us, but especially Simon Cowell, who’ll be able to buy another house on the back of this series of the show.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens to Susan Boyle now. Will she stay in the public eye, release an album, and travel around the world? Or will she give it all up and go back to living with her cats? There’s a price to pay for either decision.
