Why I Feel Sorry For People Thrust Into The Spotlight

There are a lot of people around the world, particularly in this country, who sincerely deserve to be punched in the mouth really hard for the things they say about other people– and who I am kidding? I’m probably among them.

We live in a world when it’s considered acceptable to say just about anything to anybody, as long as you don’t make a death threat or engage in slander or libel.

That’s too bad, because it leads to situations like this one,

RANTING Susan Boyle completely lost her cool with TWO four-letter outbursts in a day, The Sun can reveal. She stunned Britain’s Got Talent fans, contestants and their families before going into meltdown later in front of hundreds of hotel guests.

There were fears last night that the pressure was getting to the show favourite.

Cops intervened at 5pm yesterday after Susan, 48, went berserk in the lobby of the Wembley Plaza Hotel in North London when two strangers set out to “wind her up”.

…The Scottish singer was heard to roar: “How f***ing dare you! You can’t f***ing talk to me like that.”

One of two cops stationed at the hotel went up and asked: “Is there a problem?”

Susan, dubbed SuBo, roared: “Of course there’s a f***ing problem.”

Tears flowing, she turned on her heel and marched out the exit followed by her family, production staff and the cops.

Hotel guests legged it to the windows to get a better view of the rumpus. Police spoke to Susan and her family for several minutes in the car park.

…One officer told her: “You are in the public eye, you must learn to expect this sort of thing.”

A pal of Susan’s told the star: “You can’t act like this.”

TV producers ushered her back upstairs after police finished speaking to her.

A lot of people probably read that, shake their head, and think less of Susan Boyle for it. Personally? I feel sorry for her.

She hasn’t been in the public eye all that long and to have people walk up to her and try to “wind her up?” In all seriousness, if you walk up to a woman on the street intending to “wind her up,” you deserve a beating.

It may be true that people like Susan Boyle have to “learn to expect this sort of thing,” but it’s really sad that they have to.
