A news item on UK TV in the past half hour about the success of Susan Boyle has perplexed Australian fans visiting the UK.
They wonder why Susan is interviewed half hiding behind her front door?
They point out that Susan has done what only the Beatles have succeeding in doing before her. She is topping the album charts in the UK and the USA. This is only her second album and the second time she has achieved this extraordinary feat.
Why then is Susan not interviewed, like the superstar she has become, in a manner and in circumstances befitting her position as a world wide sensation?
Cheryl Cole, Take That and Leona Lewis to name but a few would not be interviewed at their front door. No, there would be a proper interview, in a suitable location and not outside in the middle of a cold Scottish town.
Susan has earned recognition and respect for her success.
She deserves nothing less.
