Lady Gaga Says Susan Boyle is Her "Woman of the Year"

Susan-boyle-lady-gaga  While Lady Gaga tops 'Best of 2009' lists everywhere (including here), Gaga herself thinks the woman of the year is Britain's Got Talent runner-up Susan Boyle.


"I love Susan Boyle. She is my woman of the year. She has achieved more in this year than most artists will in a lifetime. This time last year nobody even knew who she was and now she is knocking the world's most established artists off the album and singles charts."

Gaga actually makes an important point. While Lady Gaga herself seems to have erupted to stardom over the last 18 months or so, the truth is that she had been building a name for herself as a songwriter and burlesque performer for a couple years before her dragtastic pop persona made the scene. On the other hand, two years ago Susan Boyle was caring for her ailing mother and going to church.

Moreover, with her lithe, 23-year old body, Lady Gaga is not exactly an unlikely pop star, whereas Susan Boyle's initial shock factor for some was that her beautiful, angelic voice came in such "dowdy" package. Other than her voice, there is nothing about Susan Boyle that would make a single record executive consider for even a second giving her a record contract. That is, until the hype from her appearance on Britain's Got Talent.

When she first appeared on the BGT stage, Susan Boyle said she wanted to be as famous as British stage legend Elaine Paige. I think now if you were to poll people on the street to see how many know the names "Elaine Paige" and "Susan Boyle," I'm fairly certain the latter would evoke more recognition than the former. 

The fact that a 48-year old Scottish woman went from complete anonymity to international stardom overnight is fairly astonishing in its own right. But, seeing as how nowadays celebrity is more often awarded based on spectacle or scandal than on honest-to-God talent, Susan Boyle's rise to fame was not just amazing—it's almost inconceivable.
