Along with my 60 year old alt-country former hippie father, you can add Jay-Z to the list of unlikely Susan Boyle fans.
In a recent interview, he sung the Boyle’s praises and even suggested that she capitalize on her success by starting her own clothing line.
“What Susan’s achieved is unbelievable. Everybody wants a piece of her and the market for her is huge. I could see her with her own clothing range. Sure, why not? She’ll appeal to women of a certain age. They’ll see an ordinary person who made the best of herself. It’ll give them hope.”
I’m going to ignore the fact that he used the odious phrase “women of a certain age” and just hope to high hell that we don’t see an “Oh Susan Ugh!” or “Susan B-eautiful” line of polyester blend slacks and sensible pantsuits coming to a K-mart near you anytime soon.
