It Wasn't Lou Reed's Fault!

| Filed under: Music MinuteSusan Boyle


It was previously reported that Lou Reed was the reason Susan Boyle was unable to perform on America's Got Talent last night, but that's not true according to his reps.

Apparently it was a contractual issue and that his song "Perfect Day" was not cleared in time for her to perform in America as it was in the UK.

She also didn't have another song prepared for the show making her unable to perform.

Reps for Susan released a statement:

"Susan was due to perform a chosen song from her new album The Gift on America's Got Talent in Los Angeles. It is with real disappointment and regret that she has been unable to do so due to unforeseen circumstances relating to the song.

"Susan is very disappointed as she had been looking forward to it immensely. She is now on a plane heading back to London with a heavy heart. Susan really looks forward to being able to perform her new songs very soon."

Chin up, girl!

    She should have had a back up song just in case. Also, maybe she should look into releasing her own work.

    Every song she sings ends up sounding like it's being for somebody's fucking funeral or something. Perfect Day for death ?!?

    How the hell could she sing a lou reed song. That is a f-ing travesty, whether he gave her permission or not. don't touch lou reed.

    In my humble opinion, Lou Reed is one of the best poets / songwriters the U.S. has ever produced. He deserves respect. I love the 'Susan' phenomenon, but she's just a blip on the cultural radar.
    Perez…..please post a link to the the BBC Lou Reed ensemble 'Perfect Day' video from years ago…..and it will underscore his brilliance.

    This woman should not be allowed to perform in public. Let her record her beautiful voice in a studio and release her cd's but please keep her out of the public eye and anything that would release her mental issues. She is a walking time bomb and someday something is going to happen.
