Video: She who laughs last – songstress Susan Boyle – Times Online

Most of the recent press about Susan Boyle has been commentary about her performance, or the YouTube sensation it created. Her TV interviews thus far have given the impression of someone quite shy and quiet when she isn’t performing. So it’s nice to see this Times article that proves there is a gritty, personable woman to go with her gritty, personable stage persona:

Boyle is aware that some of the cynicism that greeted her arrival on stage at the Britain’s Got Talent audition stemmed from her frumpy appearance. She wore a gold lace dress that she’d bought for her nephew’s wedding but left her unruly hair uncombed and her face free of make-up. “I know what they were thinking but why should it matter as long as I can sing? It’s not a beauty contest,” she says…

“Maybe I’ll consider a makeover later on,” she laughs. “For now I’m happy the way I am — short and plump. I would not go in for Botox or anything like that. I’m content with the way I look. What’s wrong with looking like Susan Boyle? What’s the matter with that?”
