Susan Boyle is my Homegirl

When I saw this, I cried. Sat at my desk and weeped like a baby. Then I watched it again. 

I don't know why it moved me so. I guess I'm not alone, I mean this video was a youtube sensation. It's like you literally saw her dreams coming true and it was touching, inspiring, moving....

She continues to move me. Girl went and broke the world record! She has become the first female act to have simultaneous number one hits in the UK and the US twice in one year. Sorry, Mariah and Madonna...you can't catch, Susie. Only The Beatles and The Monkees have had simultaneous chart toppers and that was in the 60s. (via mtv.co.uk)

“I've never felt happier in all my life,” SuBo said of the achievement. “This is an amazing result and one I never expected.” 

SuBo?! Well, that's fun nickname if I've ever heard it!

Britain’s Got Talent boss Simon Cowell had high praise for the 49-year-old: "I'm thrilled for Susan, she has once again defied the odds. She is my superwoman."

I have to agree. She's awesome. In an age where sex appeal is king, it's refreshing to see someone get recognition for actual talent. I was angered when I heard some dj's last week say that they bet "Susan Boyle would trade in all her money and success to be pretty." Seriously? Is that were we are as a culture? What happened to "It is what is on the INSIDE of a human being that matters"???

In addition to her world record, SuBo also kicked Taylor Swift's album out of her number one seat last week on the Billboard charts. Selling more albums then Taylor Swift while she's writing songs about John Mayer and the werewolf from Twilight? No easy feat, Susie Q.! Looks like she didn't need "to be pretty" to pull that one off.

If I still bought cd's I would go buy the "The Gift" today. Maybe, I'll tell my parents I want that for Christmas.

I also heard on the radio last week that SuBo will only allow her accountants to give her $500/week. She said when she had access to all of that money it changed her and she didn't like it. Now, she allows herself as much as a secretary would make in her country, Scotland. I. am. sorry - but, I have to state, I'm completely blown away by this. What a picture of wisdom and humility and a true testament of "money does not buy happiness". If I ever have the kind of money she has I highly doubt I would have the strength to allow myself $500/week. pppppffffttttttt.

Susan Boyle, you are my homegirl....I wish you life's every happiness. Who has a cool old uncle to set her up with?? SuBo for the next Bachelorette!! JK - she's way too cool for that :)

You are so right. And guess whay - Susan IS pretty - in fact she's beautiful! Check her out in today's Rockefeller Center Concert on NBC - she looked great and sounded amazing.
