'I feel ' like a mega star'Simon Cowell looked into the eyes of Susan Boyles older brother and said the words her family had been longing to hear. I think your sister is wonderful and she could be the biggest star Ive ever discovered, Simon told Gerry Boyle, in the swanky London office where the entertainment mogul has made his millions. If she does

nt want to go forward from Britains Got Talent I will walk away now and there is no pressure. But if she does, I promise to wrap her in cotton wool and make her a star. After being told he had the familys blessing to catapult SuBo to superstardom, Simon shook Gerrys hand. This week Susan appeared on American TV

alongside Elaine Page - bumping President Barack Obama out of a prime-time slot. Speaking about the interview on the Today Show, Susan told Gerry: It was fantastic to be on TV with Elaine. When I watched the interview back I felt like a megastar for the first time. I cant believe how much my life has changed in the past few weeks. I am so happy and I never want it to end. Gerry says Susan, 48, has moved out of her council house in Blackburn, West Lothian, to a swanky flat in Kensington, West London. Living with her is her beloved cat Pebbles... whom Cowell had flown in to keep her company. Shes been given a credit card for shopping and has replaced her entire wardrobe as well as getting her teeth whitened like Simon. He has provided Susan with a personal assistant called Julia and her career is being overseen by Nicola Phillips, who previously worked for PR guru Max Clifford. Susan, who used to do voluntary wor

k at her local church, is now in the studio for hours on end getting her album perfect. A manager has been appointed to make the album and it is being put together with the help of theatre guru Andrew Lloyd Webber. The first single is thought to be the Ella Fitzgerald classic Cry Me A River and SuB时时彩_任三万能码方案 o has been told she can expect to make 5m from the album. Elaine Paige has agreed to sing a duet on the album and she has been hanging

out in the studio with Lulu - who is helping her cope with the pressures of fame. Susan has also become very close to Simon - who phones her twice a week to update her on the plan to crack America. He checks Susan is being properly looked afte

r and makes sure she is not being worked too hard. They chat about how the album is coming together and he constantly reassures Susan she will have a hit record. SuBo has still not been to America as last

weeks TV interview was recorded in the UK but Simon has arranged for her to go in November, when her album will be released there in time for Thanksgiving. Next year there are plans to release a film of Susans rise to fame and a book telling her life story. Brother Gerry says the changes in Susans life have left her spellbound. Gerry said: Susan thinks its crazy how her life has changed so fast. S

he rang me after the interview on US TV and could barely talk she was so excited. Simon Cowell has put a wonderful team in place who look after her life. She loves the buzz of life in London and calls it home now. But Susan has not forgotten her beloved Blackburn... she flew back there two weeks ago to ask officials if she could now buy her council house. Gerry says: I think they were a bit shocked to see her. But they told her they had no plans to let the house to anyone else. She hopes to buy it. Susan is battling the demo

ns which caused her meltdown in the run-up to the BGT final, says Gerry. The pair share regular latenight calls and Susan has tearfully poured out her concerns about what would happen if her fame ever ends. Susan absolutely loves the life she is leading now, Gerry says. But it has left her fearful of going back to how things were, living on her own waiting for her singing dream to come true. She has asked me many times, Gerry, what happens if this all stops? Gerry says Susan has suffered from panic attacks all her life brought on by fear of failure and rejection. But he believes that with Cowell looking after her, she is in the best possible hands. Gerry says: Simon called me to a meeting last month and was very determined to let me kno

w, as her brother, that she will be managed delicately. I saw a different side to Simon. His TV persona is one thing. But he made it

clear to me he has Susans best interests at heart. As a family we needed to hear that. Gerry is astonished by his little sisters rise to fame - but not her amazing first audition, seen by millions on TV and website YouTube. Dad-of-one Gerry, from Musselburgh, East Lothian, says: I knew when she walked on to the stage the world would be shocked. From the day Susan was knee-h

igh she was singing. She had a difficult time at school because she was a loner. Shed get bullied and come home in tears. But at home shed listen to my dad sing and sit at the piano next to my mum and play. The house was a special place for Susan. It was salvation from the bullying and she developed a brilliant voice. Susan was hit particularly hard by the death of her mum Bridget two years ago and used music to cope. Gerry says: Mums death made Susan even more determined to be a star. When she stood before the judges she wanted to do it for mum. And she still does. But he adds: She enjoyed it at first. But after the first auditions and she moved back to Scotland then it became too intense and it was hard for her. She started s

aying, What the hell have I done here?. As the BGT final drew near, Susans behaviour became more erratic. Gerry says: Susan doesnt take rejection very well. Thats not to say she doesnt bounce back, she does. Its a lack of confidence and a case of getting overworked up. With Britains Got Talent it all just became too much. After she

finished second to Diversity, ITV bosses ar


anged for Susan to be taken to the Priory clinic. Gerry reveals: Susan worried about going in at first. But it was the right thing for her at the time. She realised she had not failed and would not disappear off the face of the Earth. That is what she feared more than anything. Gerry says Susan was also helped by going on the BGT tour. He says: She needed the reassurance that the

public still loved her. When she walked out that first night and got a standing ovation it was an important moment for her. Meanwhile, former cabaret singer Gerry has launched his own BGT-style competition in Scotland after setting up a record label, Instant Music. His brand - - also offers services like banking and insurance, and he has set up a business academy. Eventually he hopes his sister will help him hunt for new stars. He adds: Theres no better ragsto-riches story than Susans. And I hope to uncover a few diamonds of my own. I am sure Susan will be able to cope much better now with the pressure and challenges ahead. She doesnt want to end up back alone in Scotland waiting for her dream to come true. Comment: Page 14
