Susan Boyle on Britain's Got Talent

Susan Boyle has confirmed that she wants to stay in the public eye following her success on Britain’s Got Talent.

The 48-year-old star is currently working on her debut album after finishing in second place on the ITV1 talent show Britain’s Got Talent in May.

Susan Boyle’s original audition for the programme became a YouTube sensation earlier this year, but her achievements were later marred by reports of an emotional breakdown due to the pressures of fame.

Speaking about her experiences for NBC News, the star revealed: “It’s just been unbelievable – it’s indescribable. Being plucked from obscurity is a bit like going on a long journey, really – you don’t know what’s going to happen. You don’t know how it’s going to end.”

She added: “I don’t want it to end. It’s just really good.”

Britain’s Got Talent judge Simon Cowell recently promised that Boyle’s debut single would be “fantastic”.

Mariah Carey Feels Sorry For Su-Bo

Susan Boyle can add pop superstar Mariah Carey to her list of famous friends after the diva (Mariah, not Su-Bo) insisted she’s not surprised the Scottish singing sensation is freaked out by her sudden rise to stardom.

Boyle became an international star overnight when she showed off her singing skills on U.K. TV show Britain’s Got Talent, but the instant interest became too much for the spinster to handle – she checked into a mental health clinic after her final appearance on the show.

Carey, who herself suffered a physical and emotional breakdown in 2001, is far from surprised. She says, “I feel bad for her… We build people up so quickly now that of course it’s going to freak some people out. It’s difficult. It’s got to be tough.”
