Susan Boyle had some trouble adjusting to fame, but now she's ready to share her story with the world. The overnight singing sensation has written a memoir, The Woman I Was Born to Be, due to hit stores this fall.
"I'm writing this book to try and show that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, and I hope it will benefit other people," Boyle says. "My story demonstrates that... you should look at the whole person, emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually, and I hope that telling it will show that dreams are not impossible, if you've got courage and a willingness to go on no matter what the circumstances."
We think it's fantastic that the super-gifted Boyle has come to terms with her status as a pop culture hero, and that she feels confident writing a memoir. Yet we have to wonder: Is there really anything left to tell? The whole reason Boyle stole our hearts in the first place is that she was a totally ordinary woman, nothing special about her -- until she opened her mouth to sing and an otherworldly voice emerged. Her life before Britain's Got Talent was spent in a small village with her cat, where she strutted her stuff at the occasional karaoke night. Boyle doesn't seem like a woman with the kind of deep, dark secrets that make a juicy memoir.
Then again, maybe we're wrong; and if Boyle is secretly a member of the royal family, or had a passionate affair with Simon Cowell, we'll be first in line at Barnes & Noble.
