this now (after the paul potts thing) and tell me this whole boyle issue wasn't just a whole makeover wet dream wannabe for the producers - she's got nothing on potts. NOTHING.
personally i like success stories involving people that have some talent to begin with, whether it's a raw talent like being able to sing or play the stock exchange like a demon, or an acquired talent like eating 38 eggs in a row.
and when that success doesn't happen for people that deserve it, i'm all for breakdowns and general unhappiness.
however. we're been slavishly following boyle's breakdown because of a huge non-success, because she sucked and the world judged her for it. boohoo. go home. this meme is DONE with.
(but before we do away with it completely read chris mc's column on her here. funny.)
