This Susan Boyle Thing, It's Enough Already

This Susan Boyle Thing, It's Enough Already-photo

She's a sweet lady, but haven't you kind of had enough of Susan Boyle? The Scottish chanteuse came to prominence through her dazzling performance on the amateur talent program, Britain's Got Talent, in August of last year, with a recording of the performance quickly going uber-viral on YouTube to viewers around the globe.

Just a year later, the crooning highlander's first album has dropped and is dominating the billboard charts in the U.S. and around the world. But how will this overnight success story ultimately play out? Through a process we here at Celebuzz call, "wild uninformed guessing", we have surmised four possible outcomes to the Susan Boyle story:

1.  The Fairytale Ending

A lonesome spinster her forty-eight years to date, Susan's 2010 world tour in support of her album leads her into the company of a certain world-class golfer recently divorced from his wife following an extra-marital sex scandal of epic proportion.  As Susan hails from the land where golf was invented, the two hit it off immediately and make plans for a future wedding, with vows optional.

2.  The Winehouse

Newfound fame on the music circuit leads Susan into the seedy underbelly of the industry, including groupies, dirty needles, and sleazy drug-users and dealers just looking to corrupt the naive Ms. Boyle. Eyes barely open following a night of crack-binging, Susan finds a very unclothed Pete Doherty next to her in bed. Simon Cowell sponsors her rehab.

3.  The Long, Slow, Decline

Susan entirely overplays her fifteen minutes of fame into two years of shame spiral, leading her to be labeled "The Next James Blunt", and a never-ending string of weaker and weaker bookings and performances until she finds herself with a talk show on the Oxygen Channel.  Yep, it gets that bad.

4.  The Reverse Joaquin Phoenix

Having achieved such superstardom so easily in the world of music, Susan declares that she is no longer going to record music and is instead going to concentrate on her acting, which will ultimately lead her to being cast as Scotch Bonnet, a full-sized sedan with an impenetrable bumper in the Summer 2015 blockbuster, Transformers 5: Still Transforming.

Tell us what you think.  Had enough of Susan Boyle or are you rooting like heck for her continued success?

    I haven't bought her CD and have no intention to.Not my style.If I wanted to see older people like over the age of 30 but under 48 sing that are female I would go out and try find me some Wilson Phillips albums or a Debbie Gibson/Tiffany/Christina Aguilera/Pink album too as these are more my kind of music.

    Susan is popular with mainly the women because she's not threat to them. She's not young, she's unattractive, she's obese, and she has the intelligence of a hummingbird. When middle aged women look at a beautiful singer she makes them depressed because she reminds them that they lost their youth forever. Thats why they dislike Britney Spears Lady GaGa Fergie whom are all very good entertainers. How do you know Susan isn't taking drugs? There is an anxiety drug that performers use before they go onstage to perform and Susan could be a user too. Drugs are handed out like candy to these people which is why there is so much drug abuse with entertainers. I havent bought her CD and dont plan to. She's not my style.

For some odd reason she wants to stay over there with you people who have treated her like sh*t her whole life and you still treat her like garbage. Maybe one of these days she'll wake up some morning and discover that you people just ain't worth it! Haha you scumbag you give me jokes! Your such a thick s*it shes here in America for few shows so I think Isabelle was talking about that. And she hasn't been treated like s*it all her life because SHES JUST BEEN DISCOVERED YOU AS*HOLE!

    It's sad that dysfunctional, mean spirited and emotionally jaded people are allowed to expresss opinions. They are simply exposing their own inadequacy, jealousy, ignorance and twisted outlook on life. I suggest that councilling is a good place for them to start their new year resolutions so that they can try to "get over themselves". Susan is a charming, lovely and gifted lady. Her CD sales say it all. For those who want to listen to crazed, drug addicted, half naked "artists" screeching ... that's your prerogative ... go for it ... and leave those of us who do have taste to listen to the music that pleases us.

    Shame Toots ... you are exposing yourself to be such a vindictive, silly, sour little simpleton with your meaningless prattle. You really didn't get it all in the intellect stakes, did you. Try to get your uninformed fragment of a mind around the fact that Susan Boyle is making history - whether you like it or not. There are those who admire her, find her charming and enjoy her music. She is outselling all other CD's at this present moment in time whether you understands that or not. There is no need to defend her. Facts cannot be undone simply because you don't want to accept them or because your lack of comprehension inhibits assimilation of fact. I suggest that if you do get satisfaction from commenting on blogs you need to be informed before you make a bigger fool of yourself than you already have. Go back to school and then try again. Susan Boyle is bigger than Tiger Woods? The writers of this article must be LTFAO

    Oops Toots! Perhaps it's anger management you need ... as well as a little education. No, no dear ... don't show your very apparent ignorance again ... Susan Boyle is not a movie star. Whether you like it or not ... Susan Boyle will go down in history as having broken several sales records, charmed millions and taken the world by storm - so accept it ... and then break free from your little egotistical cage and try to get a life. You're as thick as a brick Daisy. Aren't you the one getting all defensive over this Susan Boyle? If she was making history - I would have heard about it. Now go take your meds and calm down.

    Shame Toots ... so the need for counselling suggestion touched a sensitive chord did it? And Toots ... on whose authority do you make such profound statements i.e. that "People who go around telling others they need counseling - usually need it themselves." Was that your thesis when you went to Harvard? Where did you get your stats from? But then, it you don't yet know who Susan Boyle is you clearly don't read much .. or if you do, you don't understand much. Shame! So let me help you ... Susan Boyle is a beautiful person who has recently taken the world by storm with her charm and talent. I've made it simple ... so do you understand now? You're the one who's getting all hot and bothered under the collar Daisy. People don't normally go around telling others they need counseling. It's not normal behaviour and if you're feeling that way then maybe it is you who needs the counseling. I'm sure if Susan Boyle was that talented and charming - I would have heard of her. What movie was she in?

    okay in response to the first comment, fair enough your sick of her but to say her singing sucks just completely takes away any credibility to what you say. im sure we all love our winos and fergies and ri-ri's, but its kinda nice to see a real person for once. its people who actually take the time out of there day to hate on someone as harmless as this woman, because she is so different to the plastics in the magazines, that are pathetic.

Tiger Woods (that story got old after the first day), the Kardashians, Jon & Kate and their litter, The bumble boy, Taylor Swift, Adam Lambert, and all the other talentless attention whoooorrreeesss who's 15 minutes should be up. Susan Boyle can rock my world any day. Can't get enough of her and if anything she is under reported on. So stick that up your goose and cook it gossip girls!

    If you don't like her, then don't listen to her music or read articles about her....but MILLIONS of people DO like her and her music and are impressed that SHE DIDN"T turn into a complaining harpy (sound familiar??) and spend all of her time being negative about others and tried to make something of herself. She did a great job!on her first CD and we are looking forward to more CD's from her!!!!

    It seems to me that media venues like this one just put tripe like this article out so that people will come read it simply because they can't believe that the author is so trite and nasty. I look at it this way, besides me there are obviously several million people who want to hear her, see her and know all they can about her so who cares what the mud racking tabloid trash says. I only responded to this to implore people to stop giving credence to this ilk by reading it to begin with. If no one reads this drivel then these sites and media rags will disappear and all will be moot any way. Susan Boyle Rules. If she is not your cup of tea then simply turn a knob or the page and shut up.

    Actually, I am sick of you, this kind of untalented editor only know how to blast people (anyone) for living. Don't you know the saying, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything. As for Artists, anyone mature with common sense will never sick of pure talent artists as oppose for technical enhanced artists or sell thru sex appeal. There are so many junk editors like you blast people directly or indirectly for living, it make a world full of hate. Other artists only entertain. Susan is history making. I think the only people can blast people is if that people is better than the one he/she blasting directly or indirectly. When you sing better than susan, than people will truthly listen. Are you Elaine Paige or the likeds? If not, you're not qualify to say anything but yourself or predict talent artist future.

    We aren't tired of Susan. Besides liking her singing - whether she's the greatest singer ever or not - she still represents triumph over a crappy past. She is still a daughter who aches to share what has happened with the mother who wanted her to make something of herself. She's still the one who can look back on the bullies and the teachers who beat her and feel triumphantly warm inside. She fills that space in all of us of longing to overcome the obstacles and thumb her nose at them. You go, Susan. The world loves you. Don't listen to the naysayers who make their living by being an abstacle!!!!!

    well said melliehanson. What we are d*mn sick and tired of is everyone trying to bring her down. It's time they all wake up and smell the coffee, Susan is just beginning. She's a #1 recording artist now and that's the way it should be because she has talent. If they don't like her, don't listen but leave her alone to sing for those of us that love that voice! She's not hurting anyone, so stop trying to hurt her! ENOUGH!
