Singing sensation Susan Boyle has been waking people up all over the world to the fact that looks do not matter when it comes to pure talent.
She has also been raising the question: Just What is Beauty?
By describing Susan as “frumpy,” and “the hairy angel,” the media is still looking at Susan’s appearance rather than her talent. But it seems she is building a new phenomenon quickly in the complete redefinition of not only beauty, but also success.
So can we now see past her looks alone as a society and start looking within?
While Susan recently said on Larry King Live that she would not change her looks, she recently got a “makeover,” which mainly consisted of a new outfit and hair style, including a new color.
“Talent and intelligence and heart are all internal; they don’t rely on plastic surgery to sustain them,” says Tamar Abrams of The Huffington Post. While a new hairdo and stylish attire aren’t exactly plastic surgery, Susan did change her looks.
Should she have?
Personally I wish she had not done anything to change herself and at the same time, (I knew it was inevitable) I have nothing but respect for Susan!
It’s clear that from over 40 million YouTube views, Susan’s fan base certainly don’t care about her old-fashioned housedress and cloud of unconventional hair.
Was it the pressure of stardom that caused it? The drive to win?
Or was it just the simple yearning to change it up a little?
What it all comes down to is that every woman should be able to do what she wishes to feel her best, and if a mini-makeover is what Susan wanted—and what woman doesn’t get a new ‘do or new digs once in a while?—then that’s what she should be able to have, without controversy.
Susan Boyle has won over the hearts of Britain’s Got Talent, Simon Cowell, and millions of people worldwide—and she did it without traditional pop star style, and with an extraordinary talent that surpasses most hip-gyrators and bare-assed divas that make it big, proving that you don’t have to look like a hooker to hook your audience.
I want to hear your opinion about Susan… please take a moment to speak your mind.
Love to you,
