The team in the Bingo Hideout office are quite concerned for Susan Boyle ‘s health and well being after more news reports of the strange behaviour that the Britain’s Got Talent star is displaying. Susan has been in the news almost constantly since the shock second place position she received in the final of the last series of the Britain’s Got Talent. The press coverage although often full of news of how well Susan Boyle is doing career wise, is often supplemented by further tabloid stories telling of how her mental health is very fragile. There have been stories of the Scottish reality TV star being treated at the world famous Priory Clinic, others of her being seen sucking her thumb.
Susan Boyle’s antics make her ideal tabloid fodder
The latest chapter in the Susan Boyle story is told in a couple of articles, one in tabloid newspaper The Sun in which Susan Boyle is reported to have ‘suffered another public meltdown’. The singer was, according toThe Sun in the British Airways VIP lounge at Heathrow awaiting to board her flight to Chicago when she became agitated, sang loudly using a cleaners mop as a microphone and shouted obscenities. BA staff apparently requested that Ms Boyle ‘temper’ her unruly behaviour, although British Airways have not officially named the singer as being the culprit. The second story was published in the Daily Mail and told of her abusive behaviour in a local café to her house in West Lothian when she is alleged to have shouted at a member of staff "You better not be ****ing talking about me".
We all seemed to judge SuBo book by her cover
Since the moment that Susan Boyle – or SuBo as some papers have dubbed her - hit the stage and sang for the first time, the guys in the Bingo Hideout office have been big fans. Well we say big fans, not enough to purchase tickets to a concert or join her fan club, but certainly are quite happy to watch her on TV and download a few tracks from her best selling ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ album on iTunes. What we do all have though is a belief in is how amazingly talented the singer is, even if we don’t always have the same taste in music. It is therefore this sparkling talent that generates our passionate support of Susan Boyle. That, tinged with the overriding guilt that we all feel as we too ‘judged this book by its cover’ on first sight on the Britain’s Got Talent stage. We hope that the extremely gifted songstress will soon settle into accepting her new found fame and that the pressure of interviews, global tours and meeting her own idols such as Elaine Page, do not all add to the toll on her already fragile emotional health.
