She's still Susie from the block.


I know it's been blogged about a million times over but I don't give a shit so I'm going to have a massive rant about Susan Boyle.


I really like her. I think her story is pretty amazing. I love the fact that after all this press, global attention and a multi million dollar album, she still catches the bus around town. 


If you are one of the few people who have not seen her first audition on Britain's Got Talent, watch it now.  It still gives me goosebumps. It's just amazing. 


It really annoys me when critics and reporters have a go at her for being "mentally unstable". Or when they punch out their horrible gossip columns because she threw a chair or something when she didn't win Britain's Got Talent. 


Everyone who says she's a psycho needs to think about her situation.


She's this almost 50 spinster who lives in a tiny village. She didn't have a huge amount of human interaction in her life besides going to church and down to the corner store. She was hyped up to win the television show. Launched into fame. Thrown into the spotlight. Of course anyone who has been talked up that much and has the whole world believing that they're going to win something is probably going to go a bit loopy when they don't actually win. Not only do they lose, but they lose to a bunch of kids who dance. That would hit hard. 


She's not used to fame and it will probably take some getting used to. She might not even totally adjust and continue to have 'diva' outbursts for the rest of her life. 


And anyway, look at Kevin Rudd. He's been in the public eye for awhile and he still throws tantrums when he doesn't have a hairdryer. 


What do you think about Su-Bo? Love or Hate her?
