Susan Boyle Keeps It Real

Susan Boyle appears less crazy and more thrilled on the cover of her new album, I Dreamed a Dream.

The Britain's Got Talent sensation is keeping it real on the cover, appearing in all her wrinkled glory -- no airbrushing or makeover for Boyle.

"She needs to stay exactly as she is because that's the reason we love her," says Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden. "She just looks like anybody who could live on your street. The minute we turn her into a glamourpuss is when it's spoilt. For now, we'll keep her exactly as she is because that's why we've all fallen in love with her."

But Boyle's look has little to do with the current success of the album, which isn't due for release until November 23. The CD has already topped the Amazon bestsellers list due to tens of thousands of pre-orders. At this rate, Boyle is sure to hit the top of the Billboard charts!

One is compelled to look inside and seek an understanding of what is felt upon hearing the blessed Susan sing. Her perserverance, professionalism, sense of self, honesty, clarity of purpose, and dedication are deep measures of the human spirit and set a perfect paradigm before follow. As I listen to Susan Boyle, I could not help but note that Susan has all by herself clarified the condition of the world, and contrasted what it is against what it could be. From her intense voice we learn what is real, and remind ourselves of what has too long been remarkably shallow and unworthy. I find more beauty in Susan Boyle "just as she is" than all the "Pole Dancers" of the last hundred years. Susan Boyle is real and reminds us of what we have lost, and gives us hope of what we might find. God has truly blessed Susan and her beauty needs no stands on it's own.

I didn't see any wrinkles. she's beautiful, inside and out. How crass and mean some people are. I'm really looking forward to receiving her CD, and maybe someday seeing a live performance.

Chill, peeps. Absolutely nothing negative was said in this article - as a matter of fact, it was very supportive of Susan and the fact that she chose to go natural in her album cover, wrinkles and all. Find something worth while to complain about.

This is a beautiful photo of a beautiful lady - obvious to anyone who can see and think. Other poor souls are desperately searching for someone or something to destroy. Well, you won't destroy Susan or our love for her whatever your spiteful remarks. As for Amanda Holden, the least said the better.

" all her wrinkled glory??" WTH kind of comment is that to make about this incredibly talented lady who has more pre-orders on Amazon than anyone else in recorded history, is #1 on Amazon orders in the US,---and is on her way to having the most CDs ever sold in the history of the music industry? If all you can take out of that are the number of smile lines around Susan's twinkling eyes, you are short-sighted indeed. Smile on, Susan! Your star is already brighter than your detractors' will EVER be!!

Susan Boyle doesn't have the ambition to get off her chair and go to the toilet. Simon does all the work for her and all she has to do is show up and sing. She had difficulty doing that. A loser for losers.

I believe if you have nothing nice to say, then don't say it at all. I think Susan Boyle is one of the most wonderful gifts that God has ever sent to the people of the enjoy. I love her personality and talent. She is a normal person with an outstanding voice. She does have an Angelic voice. When she sings the hairs on my arms stand straight up. She is a great inspiration to me. We are both of the same age, and to think she finally accomplished her me the hope to hang on to my dreams, and keep working toward them. God put her in front of the world to show all of us not to give up, to continue moving forward in our lives. Susan Boyle you were sent to the world to give us hope and confirmation that we can have our dreams come true at any time and any place. I am so looking forward to purchasing your CD so I may hear that beautiful voice of yours. But, there is another beautiful feature of yours I look forward to seeing on T.V....Remember when Pierce had stated on the show about that cheeky little grin of yours? That is also what makes you so beautiful, when you smile it is a smile from heaven. God Bless you Susan Boyle, and the people of United States are so looking forward to being able to listen to your CD and seeing you on T.V.

Susan Boyle is a simple, humble, sweet middle-aged woman from a small village in Scotland who happened to stumble upon world wide stardom because she has real talent and had the determination and courage to overcome her fears and pursue her dream. Most of the world is rejoicing. But those who are making such mean and derogatory comments are simply showing their true colors. Someone once said, "People with low self esteem have to knock the heads off of others to make themselves look taller." And to be honest with you, I can't imagine a more deparate attempt.

Obviously pogo's comments needs to be taken off the internet with that language. SusanFanforever also needs to clean up the language. Why does anyone lower themselves to that level? Why do they think they need to use that kind of language to make a point or get attention.

Ms. Susan Boyle with her angelic voice, and the sheer courage, graciousness and elegance of her being, overnight touched the world. The cover is from the recent spread in a high fashion magazine. Another achievement. It is not necessary to comment other than the world loves Susan Boyle. She has indeed touched our hearts and lifted our spirits, and made our daily lives happy and hopeful.
