susan_boyle_cartoonSUSAN Boyle has upset US TV show host Rosie O’Donnell by having her hair COMBED.

US TV star Rosie O’Donnell, tells Access Hollywood:

Here’s a woman who, at my age, was perfectly content to live in a little village in Scotland and sing in a pub, and then she came and did this and 200 million people saw her. That’s like being hit by a tidal wave.”

Can Rosie mean the woman who was content to compete in loadsa talent shows and lose? The woman who had a voice coach? The woman who appeared on national telly with Michael Barrymore?


“We will never see the Susan Boyle that we saw that night again. That’s done. It’s been washed away.”

And then painted…

O’Donnell has previously compared Boyle to Shrek.

“That moment is what every artist tries to capture,” she said. “Here is this freaky miss, a fat, ugly girl, like Shrek comes to life, directing energy towards her soul. This was so rare … something authentic in a world that is usually manufactured. It was a perfect moment which will never happen again.”

Boyle is a totem of authenticity because she looks like dowdy? The hackneyed opinion says that Boyle’s looks enable her to better connect with her soul, and ours, and tinkering with them will destroy her identity.

She is no longer a singer but a symbol.

How’s that for respecting her as an individual..?
