You can see it here - and please watch it until the end!
It's a story for this blog because in the pre-interview, Ms. Boyle described herself as a virgin who's never been kissed and lives with her cat. She presents a less-than-glamorous figure: overweight, unfashionably dressed, unemployed, looking older than her 47 years. I was cringing watching her, dreading what was to come.
Not surprisingly the audience and judges laughed at her ambition to become a singing star. As Simon Cowell keeps reminding us, women have to be young, slim and sexual to make it in the business. So it brought me and the rest of the world a lot of joy to watch her flying her flag, taking their shit with great humor – and then blowing them all away with her wonderful performance.
I get a lot of emails from people who have shut down their outer lives because they've never had sex. They believe they're not pretty enough or sexy enough or experienced enough to ask anything of the world.
So next time you're feeling that feeling, STOP and watch Susan blow them all away, outward appearances and history be damned. I hope she becomes a huge star and fuck the rest of 'em.
