Susan Boyle’s shame

50-year-old Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle- who shot to fame after appearing on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009 – is known for her fiery outbursts but has learned to control her emotions and admits she was “ashamed” of her temper.

“I’m ashamed to admit it, but yes. But I’m getting a wee bit older now and I’m more used to it. You get nothing done by shouting and bawling. I’m not proud of it but I was known as the oiss Piggy of temper.” She says.

The Wild Horses hitmaker – who famously declared she had “never been kissed” when auditioning for Britain’s Got Talent also admitted she is “lonely” and wants to find a “special” man who can “calm” her down.

“Am I lonely? I would be lying if I said otherwise. I often say how lonely I am…You feel it sometimes at night. You just hope the job that you’ve got wins you new friends and maybe one day that vital person.”

“He would have to be kind, loving and maybe someone who could keep me calm. Someone special. Someone extra special. There’s plenty of time.” Susan says.
