Susan BoyleSUSAN Boyle is celebrating a milestone birthday — she turns 50 today, April 1!

The Scottish singer — who shot to fame as a contestant on the UK TV show Britain’s Got Talent – will celebrate her big day with a party for close family and friends near her home.

“I’m looking forward to turning 50, there’s not much I can do about it but I’m happy to be reaching this birthday,” Susan said.

“I guess I’m living proof that none of us know what’s around the corner and while I may have started a little late I really hope I can be around for a wee while longer!

“I’ve had some wonderful moments throughout my life especially over the past two years and I would like to thank everyone for their kindness and encouragement, I wouldn’t be here without it and I appreciate it every single day.”

Susan — who’s believed to have earned around $8m from her debut album — recently insisted she’s careful with her money.

“I’ve only just learned how to go in a taxi, I don’t flash the cash,” she said.

“I’m always careful with money. I’m not saying I’m mean, but I’m always careful.”[imagebrowser id=853]

    Happy Birthday, Susan. You are a great inspiration to those of us who are over 50 and have not yet made it like you have. Love your voice! Keep going. Why don’t you interview on the Piers Morgan Show on CNN TV? He’s Brit who should interview you for all to see. Blessings to and your family.

    Haven’t you heard the old saying “Life Begins at Forty” You are only 10 years old. Happy Birthday you are blessed with a beautiful voice regardless of your age.

  • abercrombie fitch outlet

    Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    You are indeed one of the greatest gifts from God to many of us in the world.
    My husband and I listen to you always at home and while traveling by car
    across the United States. You keep us grounded in many ways. You are such an inspiration to many.

    Happy Birthday, and may God bless you always throughout many, many more
    blessed and happy years.

    yeah, 50 as old age in the context that the media puts it is so typically rude of them! Ms. Boyle is a wonderful person, she is pretty with those sultry eyes and a great and talented singer and I wish her all the best in life and love. I sure hope she finds true love and a great life with her talent and lives to see many more great birthdays.

      Are you just jealous, little boy?

  • JJ

    Gets old?

    I can’t wait until the infant who titled the article turns 50. Email me when you turn 50 so I can mock you.

  • http://Aol Jackie Oh No!

    What’s up with the ageist remarks, Showbiz? Doris Day is ancient and Susan Boyle is old?!?!? These are not nice remarks or good headlines! Not Impressed…..


    The Creator of this Universe also created the wonderful voice He endowed you with, Ms Boyle. And, I’m ever so thankful that He did. God knew you would not be hauty; He knew you would keep your the sweet ways we all have learned to love so much. THANK YOU SUSAN FOR GIVING US SO MUCH JOY!!! You have shared with us the wonderful gift

  • G. Terry
