With the release of Susan Boyle's second big hit "Cry Me a River", her potential seems boundless. We talked with the golden voiced spinster about her future and her relationship with former BGT discovery Paul Potts.
Susan Boyle may have found a mentor in cable repairman turned opera star Paul Potts. But Boyle assures everyone that their "romance" is actually quite ordinary. "It's nothing to get all worked up about. I still haven't been kissed."
Boyle told us about what the two overnight sensations talk about when they hang out at fish and chip joints together.
While Potts occasionally gives Boyle brotherly advice about romance, there are also times when he helps the 47-year-old star out with her career.
"He's a decent guy and he's helpful," Boyle said. "I ask him questions every once in a while, and he gives advice, but he's not my life coach."
Sometimes he just tells me something he thinks I need to know, for instance, "Don't do heroin, and if you're going to be drunk with your friends, don't get wasted at the Chateau Marmont and hook up with some famous guy."
Boyle said that Potts has filled a gap in her life after the passing of her mother. "It was getting to where I was talking to Pebbles, my cat, about all my personal problems. Cats can't understand, you know. They can't give advice. They don't really care, so long as you set a bowl of kitty chow down a couple times a day. So, just having someone to talk to-that's something."
While Potts could not be reached for comment, his manager said Potts feels his experience may help Boyle and he's ready to lend a hand as needed. [Paul Potts, you're decent bloke-Editor]
