Susan has revealed that she decided to have a makeover after seeing herself on television.

She explained that she was very unhappy about being described as the “Hairy Angel” by the press.

“I was fed up with being called that,” she explained to the Daily Mail. “I didn’t know what I looked like on television until I saw myself on Britain’s Got Talent. I saw this wee wifey with the mad hairdo and the bushy eyebrows and said, ‘Hmm, not really telegenic’.

“So I decided to spruce myself up a bit. When I look in the mirror now, I see this sophisticated lady. I’m still a bit like that wee wifey inside, but more refined in some ways. Would you want to look like the Hairy Angel? I don’t think so.”

Susan Boyle’s brother has admitted that the Britain’s Got Talent star is living in fear of rejection.

Susan is currently busy recording her debut album. However, Susan’s older brother Gerry has now revealed that she  is still plagued by her insecurities and is fearful about returning to her old life.

Speaking to the Sunday Mirror, he explained: “Susan absolutely loves the life she is leading now. But it has left her fearful of going back to how things were, living on her own waiting for her singing dream to come true. She has asked me many times: ‘Gerry, what happens if this all stops?'”

Commenting on the incident, Gerry added: “Susan doesn’t take rejection very well. That’s not to say she doesn’t bounce back, she does. It’s a lack of confidence and a case of getting overworked up. With Britain’s Got Talent it all just became too much.”

Susan recently confirmed that she is keen to stay in the public eye following her recent success.

Susan Boyle has spoken out about the dramatic impact that her sudden fame had on her emotionally.

The star of Britain‘s Got Talent, who was thrust to worldwide celebrity status after singing ‘I Dreamed A Dream‘ ,  later spent some time in The Priory after suffering from a reported breakdown.

The reality TV singer told Today – “The impact… like a demolition ball. You know… anyone who has that kind of impact finds it really hard to get a head around it.”

Talking about her recovery, she continued: “I’ve got to be honest here. I guess I had to get my head around it, but through the guidance of a great team, and they are very good, I was able to see that in perspective and really turn that around a little.”

Susan is currently working with Simon Cowell on her debut album.

Simon Cowell has claimed that Susan Boyle’s debut album will surprise many listeners.

The Britain’s Got Talent judge insisted that the LP will not include throwaway “show tunes” and claimed that the Scottish singer was “blown away” by some of the tracks they picked to record.

“We’re not going to throw out some souvenir album of show tunes which everyone expects,” he told Extra.

“We went through about 350 to 400 songs to choose from. She was blown away by some of the song choices… She’s going to surprise a lot of people with this record.”

Boyle finished runner-up on this year’s Britain’s Got Talent, behind dance troupe Diversity.

ITV admit did make mistakes in their handling Susan Boyle

Sir Michael Grade has admitted that ITV did make mistakes in their handling of Britain’s Got Talent contestant Susan Boyle.

Susan became a worldwide sensation almost overnight, but was later admitted to the Priory with exhaustion after failing to win the show.

Speaking to BBC , the ITV executive chairman said: “Nobody has ever been that famous so quickly in that short space of time, within days, within hours of the show.

“She threw herself into it all and probably didn’t pace herself. I mean, we didn’t pace her well enough. There were American news networks wanting interviews with her, Japanese networks wanting interviews with her and that demand, it was pretty exhausting.

“If you were an established star used to dealing with it, you would have found it pretty exhausting, so it was a difficult time for her dealing with all this stuff.

“But it was just an extraordinary situation and why shouldn’t she enjoy her success? She’s waited all her life.”

Show judge Simon Cowell recently recognised that he had made errors in his treatment of Susan Boyle.

Simon Cowell has claimed that Britain’s Got Talent finalist Susan Boyle sounds “fantastic” on her recently-recorded debut track.

The Scottish singer, who finished runner-up in the ITV reality show, is reported to have completed her first song during a brief break from the ongoing live tour.

Speaking to People, he said: “She sounds fantastic on the record. She’s so good, the album is not going to be show tunes. We’re going to take our time with this.”

It is understood that the 48-year-old star, who was hospitalised for exhaustion earlier this year, also visited the Sony Music headquarters in London for a meeting with executives last week.

An insider has claimed that Boyle was told that she could walk away from the project at any time, adding: “There’s no pressure on her to do this at all.”

Britain’s Got Talent runner-up Susan Boyle has recorded her first track, which has already been praised by the toughest critic on television Simon Cowell.

“I’ve cut one track with her and she sounds fantastic on record. She’s so good, the album is not just going to be showtunes. We’re going to take our time with this,” the Sun quoted Cowell as saying.

When Boyle had first appeared on Britain’s Got Talent, she said that she aspired to become a musical theatre singer “as successful as” Elaine Paige.

The 48-year-old had performed a rendition of “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables in the first round of the third series of Britain’s Got Talent, which was watched by over 10 million viewers when it aired on 11 April 2009.
