No straight jacket required!
Britain’s Got Talent sensation Susan Boyle may not have made a living from her singing just yet – but that hasn’t stopped her making the most of her talents.
Susan is now a world-wide sensation – but her singing talents first appeared much closer to home.
She told us: “I do sing at church – and I also do a bit of amateur dramatics. I sing everywhere I can, to anybody who will really listen. They would be better off with a budgie though, do you not think?”
“I even performed at the Edinburgh Festival once, on the fringe. I was in a production of Romeo and Juliet. Was I Juliet? I don’t know what I was supposed to be. The tights were an embarrassment. But it was a laugh-a-minute magical for kids”.
If Susan makes it far enough in this competition, however, her audience won’t be school kids – it’d be Her Majesty the Queen! And that would suit Susan just fine.
She said, “Whatever comes my way, I am ready. It would be lovely to sing for the Queen. There would be less of the carry on from me, and more of the singing”.
“She is a very regal lady, very nice, so I would be nice too, and just get up there and give it a bit of wellie.”
And Susan isn’t worried that the showbiz life would send her off the rails like so many stressed-out stars before her. She laughs, “It’s a challenge. Life is a challenge sometimes but this is different. And I like to test myself”.
“If it all gets too much and they lock me up, I want a great big straight jacket with spots on it. A pink one…”
“…And a big zip on the back so I can escape!”
Can Susan make it to meet the Queen? Let us know below!
