Did Lou Reed Make Susan Boyle Cry?

Which rocker thwarted Susan Boyle’s America’s Got Talent performance — and made her cry?!

That would be “Walk on the Wild Side” singer, Lou Reed, who reportedly denied Boyle permission to sing his 1972 song, “Perfect Day,” at a Wednesday taping of Got Talent, the franchise that launched the dowdy but lovable Boyle last year. The reason for Reed’s refusal is simple: according to the blogosphere, he’s not a Boyle fan.

When Boyle learned of Reed’s dis, she “dissolved into tears — unprepared to change her tune for the show,” TMZ reported.  She then “went to LAX — still in tears — to catch a flight back to London.”

Poor Susan!

Got Talent will crown its latest winner next week and one of the contenders is adorable Boyle-in-training Jackie Evancho, whom Celebuzz spotlighted last month.
