Susan Boyle felt like a “megastar” when she appeared on American TV alongside Elaine Page — bumping President Barack Obama out of a prime-time slot.
The Scottish singer — who shot to fame on Simon Cowell‘s UK TV show Britain’s Got Talent — says her superstar status is finally beginning to sink in.
But Boyle admits she still can’t believe how much her life has changed.
“It was fantastic to be on TV with Elaine,” Boyle told Britain’s Sunday Mirror newspaper in a new interview. “When I watched the interview back I felt like a megastar for the first time.
“I can’t believe how much my life has changed in the past few weeks. I am so happy and I never want it to end.”
Susan’s brother Gerry says the changes in the star’s life have left her spellbound.
“Susan thinks it’s crazy how her life has changed so fast,” she said. “She rang me after the interview on US TV and could barely talk she was so excited.
“Simon Cowell has put a wonderful team in place who look after her life. She loves the buzz of life in London and calls it home now.”
Susan, 48, has moved out of her council house in Blackburn, West Lothian, to a swanky flat in Kensington, West London.
“I knew when she walked on to the stage the world would be shocked,” Gerry added. “From the day Susan was knee-high she was singing.
“She had a difficult time at school because she was a loner. She’d get bullied and come home in tears. But at home she’d listen to my dad sing and sit at the piano next to my mum and play. The house was a special place for Susan. It was salvation from the bullying and she developed a brilliant voice.”
