Susan Boyle was reportedly brought to tears on the Los Angeles set of Fox's "America's Got Talent" Wednesday (Sept. 8th), after being denied the permission to perform Lou Reed's "Perfect Day."
According to the U.K. Sun, Reed denied Boyle the chance to sing his 1972 classic from "Transformer," the singer/songwriter's second solo album after parting ways with Velvet Underground. A source said Reed's reason for the last-minute rejection was that he "didn't like" Boyle.
Says an insider of Boyle, "She had flown to America to do this and was very excited. Her version of the song was perfect. You could tell she was upset. It's very disappointing for her."
Unprepared for the rejection by Reed, Boyle reportedly left the set of "Got Talent" in tears and flew back to London this morning.
Now quotes from people without education (comments on Billboard's site):
I never heard of Lou Reed before. He sure does looks like a looser and a murderer. Susan, you are way better than this guy. Please don';t waste your time crying on this issue. This guy is an evil.
Yes, Lou Reed wanted more fame.I have never heard of lou reed in my life.Not only is he no gentelman but also not very famous.I think his refusal of Susan Boyle was just a way to get in the spot light.Well tough nuts.He just looks like a jealous creep. You go Susan u dont need him or his crummy has been song. You r a rising star.Hes a fizzle that never was.
What?@lekkerliefje, everyone sings better than him. I';ve honestly never heard a worse voice. I had no idea who he was until this story broke and he's so bad it's shocking.
Susan who?Lou who? Susan boyle is an amazing person that has one of the most angelic voices ever so its his loss!!!
Got him there, but can she write a song better than him? You know, since she had to use someone else's song in the first place.Ok, Lou, take your song and eat it, Susan sings amazing and of course much better than you!
Well folks, seems by these people, music was invented in the 2000s, the same time movies came about to the masses.
