Susan Boyle: Thank god for normal people on TV

April 17, 2009 by Clark 

You know what, I’m thrilled Susan Boyle is getting so much notice right now. It is a simple and sad fact of popular culture that unless you’re drop-dead gorgeous you won’t get anywhere, so when a real person does something spectacular, I want to scream it from the rooftops.

Susan Boyle has an incredible voice, and there was a time when that was the most important thing. Take Britney for example- she looks great, but her singing voice is the worst bit of reedy fluff that has ever been put through ProTools.

Susan Boyle on the other hand, had talent in abundance, and yet it is the fact that she is completely normal that the media are picking up on the most. Eh? How does that work then, you muppets? She has a massive, powerful voice that should be appreciated.

Who gives a toss what she looks like? The woman has huge talent, and that is to be applauded in this day and age more than anything.

In an industry awash with identical bright orange morons, we need more people like Susan- y’know? Talented people. Where is our new Aretha Franklin or Janis Joplin?
They are out there, being ordinary, just like all the greats were once upon a time. Stop taking the easy option and signing up pop tarts- give us some stars like Susan- people we can really root for.
