#1 - She's recording it now. She just finished 22 stops on the BGT tour, including Wembley and the O2 (try googling for the info).

But, I don't get this. "Just sayin'" what? Well, no, Susan Boyle doesn't cook. But she certainly has a career now. Standing ovations at tour stops, a CD, interviews, magazine spreads (according to Meredith Viera).

Oh... and enough ratings clout to force President Obama to reschedule his press conference.

So, really, what is TMZ "just sayin'?"

So TMZ, will President Obama reschedule his press conference for you?

What exactly is it about talented, kind, middle-aged, un-reconstructed women that offends and frightens you so much?

I think the "just sayin" came from old TMZ habit. Julie Child cooked up a career. Cool pun. Now, what's going to be cooked up by the newcomer on the British circuit?

With this kind of pre-release attention going on, I hope the record producers take extra time to find songs that work with Boyle with excellence. There is no excuse now for not making each and every song, probably 15 of them, an ideal match for voice, target market and variety of music. In the final mix, it's probably more up to the producers to get a strong band and assertive team of creative sound engineers than it is to rely on Boyle's talent. PIck any famous singer who doesn't write their own songs; the music MUST be consistently accomplished if the voice isn't an outragious talent, such as a Frank Sinatra or something. Boyle can do great, but a so-so producer and songs that wreak of melodrama will result in an entire British nation rolfing their cookies into the Thames. Now THAT would be a good talent act!

Christina for your information she did NOT do 20 odd dates o n the BGT tour. In actual fact she did hardly ANY of them where the little kids like Hollie and Aiden were doing two shows a day - and doing ALL the dates.

I can't believe the rude comments on here! Susan look fabulous! Also, she seems like a very nice and down to earth person. I wish her the best.

I don't think Susan and Julia look anything alike either. They are both their own person.
