article imageSusan Boyle lashes out, twice

Susan Boyle of Britain's Got Talent exploded in fits of rage in two incidents at her hotel. There are fears that the pressure may be getting to the singer who wowed the audiences with her performance of 'I Dreamed a Dream' from 'Les Miserables'.
The bar at the Wembley Plaza Hotel hosted quite a scene when Susan Boyle, the public’s favorite contender on the show, ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ burst out in a fit of rage after seeing her favorite judge Piers Morgan tell 12-year-old contestant Shaheen Jafargholiv, one of her main rivals, that his was "the best singing performance we have heard in the semi-finals so far" after his rendition of ‘And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going’ from the musical, ‘Dreamgirls’ (watch Jafargholiv's performance here).
Flicking a ‘V’ with her fingers on the T.V. screen, Boyle shouted f*** off, before storming off to her room.
The bar had more than 100 people in the room at that time and they were said to have been stunned by the outburst. According to an onlooker, "Susan was sitting there quite happily with her drink at first. She got a bit annoyed when a busload of tourists asked for autographs and told them to wait until Shaheen had finished. She was smiling as Shaheen sang but afterwards, when Piers started praising him, Susan went nuts.
She got up, did one of those strange wiggling dances that she does, and then stuck two fingers up at the TV. Then she marched off. We didn't see her again.
"Everyone staying at the hotel gets on really well - it's like one big happy BGT family - so everyone was shocked by her outburst.”
While in a second incident, the same day, Boyle, 48 lashed out at two strangers who set out to "wind her up", roaring, “How f***ing dare you! You can't f***ing talk to me like that." Cops stationed at the hotel had to intervene and asked if there was a problem, to which Susan shouted, "Of course there's a f***ing problem."
A tearful Boyle then left the building and had a talk with the police officers for several minutes in the car park where one of the officers was heard telling her, “You are in the public eye, you must learn to expect this sort of thing", reports The Sun.
Psychologist Robyn Mills suggests “Boyle's foul-mouthed tantrums are the signs of a woman struggling to cope with rediscovering herself after being thrust onto the world stage”
He adds that she is under enormous pressure and it may be getting to her.
Boyle is reportedly set to sign a record deal and may star in an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical.
