There are people who - should you just murmur that Susan Boyle is alright for a sideshow - will leap upon you and suggest your standards are somewhere between those of a man who would poke a leper with a stick, and a drunk who urinates on frightened kittens.
Even those, even the Ma Boyle Right Or Wrong types are going to have to admit this smacks of an ill-conceived idea:
"Her management know that she's a huge success around the globe and if she were to work with one of the big stars of the rap world they know they'd probably have an instant hit on their hands if it was done correctly," the insider continued.
That's Digital Spy quoting the Mirror.
SuBo and P Diddy. Like it's a good idea.
"Susan's open to anything right now and is looking forward to seeing what comes out of her more urban recording and writing sessions. They have songs lined up for Susan and they are a real departure from her first album."
Translates as: frankly, people only really wanted a souvenir, and we're stumped as to what to do with her now. So anything is being lobbed at the wall, and even if it doesn't stick, we're hoping the sticky, mucky mess that slides down to the skirting board will at least let us sell a million or two more before we dump her back in real life.
