Susan Boyle Explodes (Not Literally)

You can take the Glasweigian out of Glasgow, but….

Not since Christian Bale’s hilariously multi-accented, spittle-flecked rant on the set of Terminator Salvation has there been such an amusing celebrity meltdown.

After nearly 2 months basking in the spotlight of the world’s media lovebeam, Susan Boyle has been the victim of a brilliantly public meltdown.

If we were reporting this in the style of a Japanese Manga – and most days we truly wish we were – it’d only be fitting to run with the headline:  SUBO EXPLODO!!!

Boyle strenuously denied early reports that she had stunned Britain’s Got Talent fans, contestants and their families with a flicked birdie sign and a ladylike ‘f*&k off’ whilst watching Piers Morgan congratulate schoolboy warbler Shaheen on his semi-final performance.

Yet The Sun has run a story this morning that shows a visibly aggrieved (we’d say ‘narked’) SuBo getting a bit of a talking down from cops. They intervened after ‘The Bo’ (not to be confused with Doctor Who’s Face of Bo) ‘went beserk’ in the lobby of the Wembley Plaza Hotel when two strangers set out to “wind her up.”

We at OTB are all too aware of the media’s corruptive influence in moulding and breaking the fortunes of many a reality TV star, so we can’t say we didn’t see this coming.

Whatever happens, everyone’s favourite spawn of Cabbage Patch Kids/Basset Hound singer looks set to stay in the spotlight for some time yet.

What do you think? She destined to crash and burn or will she too reach the heights of Steve Brookstein?
