Susan Boyle Assassination Paranoia

The inevitable descent of the Susan Boyle camp into batshit crazyness took another step this week, after she found an intruder at her house. Now, we’re not seeking to minimise the impact of this, as we know what trauma burglaries can cause, but Boyle’s brother reacted to the news by claiming that Boyle was a “a massive world star” and he feared she would be assassinated: “You look at what happened to John Lennon in New York – it’s really worrying.” Possibly the first and last time you’ll hear Lennon and Boyle mentioned in the same breath. Unless that breathe is “Lennon would be rolling in his grave for what passes as talent these days, look at Susan Boyle.”
