Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Susan BoyleSUSAN Boyle has revealed how she was forced to change her telephone number after shooting to fame on Britain’s Got Talent.

The singing sensation, 48, says she was bombarded with calls 24 hours a day for three-weeks solid.

“There were phone calls 24 hours a day,” Boyle said. “They kept me awake for three weeks, until I changed my number. It was constant.

“There were a lot of press people outside my door, a lot of television people, a lot of people who wanted a piece of me.

“It got to the stage where I couldn’t even go outside because the media — American television crews, too — surrounded the house.

“It was like being inside a giant pressure cooker, where the lid bubbles up and bubbles up and soon the pressure cooker goes.

“Everything had built up, and I was exhausted. You have to understand, my life ceased to be normal.”
