Susan Boyle a little excited (loony?) for Oprah

The next musical star to appear on Oprah: Susan Boyle, this Tuesday.

She'll be performing "Who I Was Born to Be," a song written especially for her and that appeared on her debut album. That album's run at the top of the British charts was just cut short by Ke$ha's "Animal."

Here's hoping she behaves herself in Chicago. As she prepared to fly to America for the Oprah appearance, she ... er, acted a little strange at the London airport. The Daily Mail explains:

"Britain's Got Talent" star Susan Boyle shocked passengers at London's Heathrow Airport after she started shouting obscenities and singing into a mop. The singer ... suddenly grabbed the mop from a cleaner and began to treat it as a makeshift microphone. During the bizarre outburst she also used the mop to polish passengers' shoes, according to onlookers at the VIP lounge on Tuesday. Complaints were made to British Airways staff, who tried to calm her down but instead she fled the Terminal 5 lounge, yelling, "I've escaped, I've escaped!" A source told the Sun: "It was chaos. Susan was very restless and agitated from the minute she walked in and immediately started making a scene. She was singing and dancing around, shouting obscenities at full volume."

Has our dear Susan become savvy enough in the ways of celebrity PR to act loony in order to get, well, write-ups like this? Maybe she's just a free spirit. Or maybe she's certifiable. Oprah will, no doubt, get to the bottom of it.

Still, she's looking fab these days ... with or without the rumored Botox!

The appearance was taped earlier this week. Here are some quotes from Susan's chat with O:

  • "Pretty awesome to be recognized in the street and asked for autographs. I'm getting quite a few fan letters and cards from around the globe. I'm loving every second of it."
  • "It takes a bit of time to take in because it happened so quickly. I'm really enjoying every second of it. It's like a dream come true."
  • "My mom died two years ago. After that there was a wee period where I didn't sing. You try and keep going through that pain and that's what I try to do with my singing. I am very slowly getting over it. One of the reasons I applied to the TV show was to see if I could perform in front of an audience."

Go figure. The Daily Mail... that has to be the same piece of garbage that Harry Potter author JK Rowling can't stand. That's why the paper in the Potter series is called "The Daily Prophet". They make up things because people will read them, but it's just a junk magazine with 0 credibility. Props to Susan, what a great person!

It's unbelievable how far and wide this trash flies. The inside scoop is that Susan did start singing in an airport lounge by request of fans and they sang with her. It was such a horrific disruption to one annoyed man to see so many women having such a delightful time that she got playful with him and a mop. Oh the horror. So he complained. And now the world believes she had a meltdown from having had so much fun with those who love her for her outrageous Scottish humor and wonderful voice. Unbelievable, isn't it? The truth is tabloids lie and insiders who know her don't.
By the way, there is a video on YouTube proving Susan didn't have a meltdown in NYC either.

This article is utter rubbish, but I have to respond to Liz's comment. I don't know who the heck you are, Liz, but there is NO WAT you were in New York City on November 23 because your comment is utter rubbish. If you were in the room with Susan and all the other fans, then you would have understood the circumstances and would not even make up what you have made up. I was there, along with a large group of other fans and we saw the truth. Susan did NOT do anything out of the ordinary. She NEVER talked baby talk and NEVER burst into tears. Those are complete lies. I shouldn't have to justify this, but Susan had a few brief tears after being presented with a quilt made by her fans, but she never "burst into tears." Why do people have to be so mean and evil and make up lies and attempt to smear a person's character????? Where is the compassion in this world?????

The Daily Mail no longer writes articles with intended means of informing, but of gossip and slander. Susan is a wonderful lady and should not be abused in such form of maliciousness. As WaddleDuck explains, her tears and sucking of her thumb was not because of lunacy, but of emotional gratitude and happiness toward which her fans direct to her and her fiesty humor as she imitated "baby steps, baby steps" and sucked her thumb as if she were a baby. That being said, there is nothing "loony" about Susan, you people out there in search of destroying one's happiness out of jealousy should keep your mouths shut, us fans will support Susan forever.

Liz, we have about fifty witnesses and a video proof on Youtube proving that the thumbsucking incident was just a quick joke distorted by the press to make her look crazy. Her tears at the time were tears of joy when her fans made a quilt presentation too her. This has all been filmed on video. Go to Youtube and search for the "The Susa-Quilt and Randma HQ" video (thumbsucking joke filmed around the 7 mins 30 secs mark).

It is truly amazing how the tabloids continue to look for flaws in Susan Boyle. All I can say is "I Love her music and her story!" I say "Susan enjoy your life. Who cares what other low-lifes think."

The girl has been depressed for 2 years and now look how her life has changed. I'm sure all you critics would be cool as a cucumber if you just raked in nearly $20 million on your 1st CD. I'd be danging with more than a MOP!!
At least Susan is genuine; not a crack head, sufferring from a failed plastic surgical procedure, or a child molester.

I just have to respond to Liz's comment. I don't know who the heck you are, Liz, but there is NO WAY you were in New York City on November 23 because your comment is utter rubbish. If you were in the room with Susan and all the other fans, then you would have understood the circumstances and would not even make up what you have made up. I was there, along with a large group of other fans and we saw the truth. Susan did NOT do anything out of the ordinary. She NEVER talked baby talk and NEVER burst into tears. Those are complete lies. I shouldn't have to justify this, but Susan had a few brief tears after being presented with a quilt made by her fans, but she never "burst into tears." Why do people have to be so mean and evil and make up lies and attempt to smear a person's character????? Where is the compassion in this world?????

Liz repeats that same lie everywhere she goes.
She's pathetic.

hmmmm....I notice that you don't mention Lady GaGa breaking down and going whacko..why is that, pray tell??? bias perhaps?

If I were in an airport bored and Susan wanted to perform a FREE concert for me, I'd be saying, "Cool." (oh, and clean my boots too? right on)

No photos in an airport full of cellphones? No name for the so-called "source"? If Susan did a little comedy routine with a mop, she's just following in the steps of Gene Kelly & Carol Burnett. If some stuffy VIP's got bent out of shape at her providing some amusement, the blood-sucking British tabloids would be happy to provide some lies to tear her down--their favorite past-time. When my friends & I met her at the Chicago airport at the end of her flight, she was calm & collected with her entourage in tow, & graciously signed autographs. If she'd put on a little show for us at O'Hare, we would have been cheering her on!

I think it is great, if she had hit them with the mop then that may have been some cause for concern.
Papers like the Daily Mail and others will print whatever makes headlines and catches the attention of the "mob".They are about selling papers,not concern for the reputaion of the star.
Susan's led a simple and restricted life in a lets face it tough rough Scottish neighbourhood where unemployment and crime rate is high ,they use expletives .Under stress and the constant public glare and suddenly millions of fans expressing their love for her. The change from being an almost shunned recluse could send someone more sophisticated and savvy than she is a little out of control.
It just becomes extremely unique and funny and makes us all want to laugh, heartedly. You show em' Susan!ROFL.

She doesn't need a thing done to her physically. The only thing she DOES need is the truth in what is written about her!!!!!

Was nobody with Susan at Heathrow ? Did they sit by and do nothing ? Come ON ! This story........and that's what it is..........just doesn't hang together. Where are the pictures ? Nobody there with phone ?

Not even a nice try !

Blown out of proportion again I am sure!!!!she loves being funny!!back off ..it is all so new to her.....all the attention !!
We love her all her fans xxxxxxxxxxxx

Nonsense! What no photos? Surely someone had a cellphone camera available to make a fortune from the photo. And you cannot believe that if she was so severely disturbed and behaving so bizarrely that the airline would let her board for a long flight? They could have called off the Oprah visits since it was being taped anyway. Why report, give credence to the tabloids? Why not do some journalistic digging instead?

I find it just amazing that the media have not realised the public have worked out when they are spinning a story.

The Subo stories of her being unstable are yawn so predictable. There may be issues there as can only be expected for anyone that has gone from obscuruity to the biggest world phenomanal overnight.

The above Daily Mail report is completely laughable, for a start it is highly unlikely there was a cleaner with a mop in the BA lounge at terminal 5 for Susan Boyle to grab, and even if it was why would it cause complete chaos??????????? It wouldnt is the answer

She may well have issues and may well be struggling with certain issues and dealing with fame(as most high profile media celebs do)

I sometimes dont think people realise how far reaching her impact has been - I have just returned from Korea, Australia and japan - and all three countries are obsessed with her

Let her enjoy her success, whether it is a one off record breaking album or a long term careers

If the issue relates to how she became an overnight success and the philosphy behind it - attack/criticse the creator (s) of the process, not that any journalist would turn down a $100 million contract if presented to them - no of course they will all turn it down...............


Many of the tabloids that print the trashy lies about Susan are run by the illuminati. The simple fact is, that Susan loves God and has a pure spirit and is a blessing to others! God is using her to bring healing to people's lives. The illuminati don't like that and they want to smother her light...try to cover it. That's why they order for the tabloids to print lies about her.

@ Liz ,your lying . This article is a lie. Susan is successful despite you lying losers!

The Daily Mail is trash. They've been wrong over and over about Susan. Remember, this is the paper that said she was so stressed by performances that her team was refusing to let her perform live again. Then, a week later, she performed live in Japan on tv for 40 million people on New Years Eve.
Just remember the source.

Liz - you have been spreading your junk for weeks now and it's been proven to be a lie. Stop it, please. Go slander someone else - don't get yourself in trouble with Susan's management. Your claims are so easily dissproven with the video of the event that you'd lose in court in less than a day.

I was in NY when Susan was there and she was sucking her thumb and talking baby talk. Then she burst into tears and had to be taken to a spearate room to calm down by her management.

She has that Scottish sense of human which can be hard for non-Scots to get. I'm of Scottish descent myself, so it makes me smile. I think the jerkalists exaggerate it for their own gain --getting a scoop on the biggest star in the world no doubt pays well. As long as she sings, it matters not to me what else she does. Well, not true, I do like to see pictures of her and see where she's going. I mean, for me, she can do no wrong.

The Daily Mail is a tabloid newspaper that has been lying about Susan since her audition first appeared on YouTube on or about April 11/12, 2009. They said she was fragile b/c she was crying and thumbsucking while in NYC Nov. 23 after her concert in Rockefeller Center. It just so happens that 150 of her fans met privately with her at a Scottish restaurant close to Rockefeller Center (this was prearranged with Susan's team), and she cried because she was overcome with emotion when fans presented her with a hand-made quilt and fan album and other gifts, and the thumbsucking was just funny antics by Susan in response to one of the fanclub's friends who was sitting by her and had asked her when she was coming to Texas. "Baby steps, baby steps," she replied, and pretended to suck her thumb. We fans are incensed at the Daily Mail and other rags that print trash about her without ever bothering to discover the truth. We told them what happened, but the only gossip news medium that retracted their statement was Entertainment Weekly. They had the good sense and courtesy to print a retraction. The Daily Mail doesn't care that it is lying and gossiping and assassinating her character!.

Sorry but I don't believe your story. You want to destroy her because you don't like her but we, her fans, will always be here to support her and you can't do anything about that.

Susan taped her segment on Oprah this past Wednesday. This article is baloney and you know it!!

Botox? She needs lipo on her chins man.
