Beauty and the Boyle

Here’s a story that’s likely to get any online editor dribbling with glee: Lady Gaga has said that she loves Susan Boyle, even hinting that she would love to take the stage with everyone’s favourite middle-aged singing Highlander and crank out a whacked-out electro version of whatever it is SuBo sings.

What form this would take is anyone’s guess. Maybe Gaga could do something dead tasteful, maybe with a dark song about depression, anger and resentment, as well as confusion at how and why the fickle hand of pop works the way it does. Just as long as she doesn’t start adopting Gaga’s mode of dress it’ll be all right.

‘I love Susan Boyle,’ she wibbled. ‘She is my woman of the year. She has achieved more in this year than most artists will in a lifetime. I have watched the clip of her singing on BGT a thousand times and every time I see Simon Cowell's face it makes me laugh out loud. He thinks he knows everything but even he wasn't expecting that.

‘Our styles are different. I don't know if we could work together, but never say never. It would be great to work with somebody of that talent.’
