Reality television singing sensation Susan Boyle is currently one of the most recognisable women in the world but things have not always been rosy for SuBo. Susan has opened up about her childhood, revealing how bully’s used to put out cigarettes on her.
Boyle explained, “This is the song that is so apt for my old life. I was totally out on my own. Very few friends, taunted and bullied at school. Cigarettes stubbed out on my arms. This is the theme tune to my childhood!”
She added, “It was a hard song. It brought back a lot of memories but it was also very cathartic and helped me realise that I have achieved so much in a short space of time and it’s time to move on and let those scars from childhood heal.”
Susan continued, “I’ve forgiven the people who tormented me. They still live around and about Blackburn and it’s not healthy to hold grudges now, is it.”
Susan Boyle's new album features a number of collaborations, including a duet with Donny Osmond and Michael Crawford, plus covers of Send In The Clowns and The Winner Takes It All.
