Scottish singer ‘gobsmacked’ by overnight stardom
The Scottish woman who became an Internet singing sensation after her performance on a British talent show said Friday she doesn’t want fame to change her.
Susan Boyle, 47, has said she’s still the same humble girl next door despite her knockout singing on “Britain’s Got Talent.”
She shocked and inspired the audience, judges, and Web watchers with her rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” from the musical “Les Misérables” in the first round of the show.
“I wouldn’t want to change myself too much because that would really make things a bit false,” she told CNN’s “American Morning” on Friday. “I want to receive people as the real me, a real person.”
Boyle’s appearance belied her talent, but in the end it was the very reason she won over the audience. There is speculation TV producers might give Boyle a makeover for the rest of the show, but she refused to say whether she’d accept one. iReport.com: Have you been judged on looks? read more
