Is Susan Boyle Insane or Merely Scottish?


If Susan Boyle looked like Jenna Jameson, we wouldn't be having this discussion


This comes from the British newspaper called The Sun, and it really isn't very reliable:



SUSAN Boyle stunned passengers in a VIP lounge at Heathrow as she flew off the handle - dancing around and crooning into a MOP.


The swearing singer, 48, suddenly grabbed the makeshift "microphone" from a cleaner as she suffered another public meltdown.


During her bizarre performance - which sparked complaints to British Airways staff - she also used it to polish passengers' SHOES.


Airline employees tried to calm her down only for SuBo to flee the Terminal 5 lounge, yelling: "I've escaped, I've escaped!"


A source said last night: "It was chaos. Susan was very restless and agitated from the minute she walked in and immediately started making a scene.


"She was singing and dancing around, shouting obscenities at full volume."


Her rampage was finally ended by a BA official - who sat with the Scots spinster until she boarded her flight to Chicago.


Previous meltdowns have sparked fears for SuBo's mental state after she shot to worldwide fame on Britain's Got Talent last May.



She's no more colorful than any other pop star. You can get a bucket of crazy like that if you stop off and see Britney Spears, Mariah Carey, or Whitney Houston. "SuBo" is a particularly derogative appellation. Must be a British thing.


Boyle is probably overwhelmed by the attention and afraid of failing. No one would wish that combination of fears and anxiety on anyone. I think there's a double standard, though. We tend to excuse beautiful people when they're crazy (see the three above). She's merely insane, or just another Scottish girl who made it to the big time.
