  • Reality TV makes me want to slam my head against the wall. More so? The headlines it generates! OMG! Some guy named Nigel is homophobic! OMG! Susan Boyle is really talented, no she isn't, yes she is, she cussed at someone, no she didn't! OMG American Idol is fixed! No it isn't! Yes it is! It drives me up the wall.?

    I'll stick to TV with actors and stuff :) And the Susan Boyle backlash makes me sick. Some older woman who isn't attractive has a very nice voice? I know, let's build her up and then cut her down in horrid ways. Was she out of this world amazing? No. Did she deserve to be ripped to shreds by the public just because people can't seem to handle just thinking well of a person? Um. No. Good lord, not everyone who is a tad overrated has to be stomped on people! Poor Susan has a very nice voice and probably wishes none of this ever happened.?

    This obviously isn't directed at any of you, but I'm just really annoyed with... people in general lately. Its like the world can't handle "something in between." Maybe it isn't fair, but I especially associate this with the UK. They love building people up way to high, then tearing them way, way down. Reality TV just really fuels this with people like Jade and Susan. ?

  • Sounds like you needed a vent ;-) No worries!

    Reality TV gets on my nerves alot too...there is only so much we can take! Course, most of the time, the people it happens to want the fame, but in Susan's case, I think she was pretty innocent.

  • Yeah, I didn't follow anything in the media about the competition or her. This is the first "reality" show I've ever really watched or enjoyed - but the only reason I watched it was because I was so impressed and drawn in by her.

    I would pay to see her in the west end anyday.

    I think Diversity was good too, Susan Boyle got a record number of hits on youtube for a reason - I'm just completely shocked that she didn't win!

    On another note though, I did like how she was genuinely happy for Diversity and was very classy toward them when they won. Not so much while she was doing her little dance, but that's part of her appeal!?

    OMG thank YOU! This is exactly how I perceive reality t.v. Who cares about whether Boyle had kissed a man, wait she didn't... well probably! I just wanted to listen to her singing and to be quite honest (with Melaina on this one) it wasn't as angelic as the media hyped it up to be. She was good but seriously, that much attention? This has nothing to do with her physically, she seems to be a lovely woman. Just a mere victim of the paps that love to build then destroy.

    I am getting so weary of "reality" t.v. and all the "new" ideas they are concocting to make it more interesting, give it a rest!

    This. They were my pick as well. Diversity were fab, and worthy winners - they need more of a springboard, Susan will do just fine.

  • Susan is reportedly in the Priory now for exhaustion.

    She has learning disabilities and obviously (from flipping off a tv to ranting at police) was not coping with the attention well....

    I'm glad she didn't win for these reasons. Much like the little girl who choked on Friday night. Nice people, but won't be able to handle the fame.

  • She has an amazing voice and I wouldnt feel too bad for her - she'll make $$$millions from this experience.  Whatever happened to the little Welsh boy?  He had an amazing voice also.
