What a difference a day makes. Susan Boyle was transported by ambulance today from her London hotel to a private health clinic, reportedly suffering exhaustion and some mental distress.
I suspect the same thing would have happened had she won first place. The sudden and overwhelming celebrity was probably as enormous a burden as it was an opportunity.
I hope she gets excellent care and recovers quickly. I’m sure Simon or someone is planning on having her record an album, and I’d bet it will secure her financial future.
