susan-boyle
Susan Boyle went from overnight sensation to runnerup in Britain’s Got Talent to exhausted wreck in a hospital bed. In today’s celebrity world, a cautionary tale… we make you a star, then we tear you down. Like a dog playing with a new favorite toy that got old real fast. Boyle, it turned out, was a very good singer but no Streisand. And the more we learned about her, the less endearing and more oddball she became. Fragile too, she wasn’t tough enough for modern jungle out there. Hopefully, the British woman will find some calm — and sound management — and enjoy some deserved commercial success.
