The music and medical world were agog today after Indian Medical Practitioners announced a mind bending dual organ transplant involving two of the world's most fabled female singers.
In a joint press conference, beamed world wide and live through a feed from New Delhi's Red Dot Channel 9 TV, Dr. Patek Patel Matel confirmed reports that the two troubled singers had recently undergone surgery at his private clinic, and both were now fully recovered and ready to restart their careers.
Ms. Boyle, 47, now known as SuBo, the Scottish overnight sensation with the voice that could make Gordon Brown weep with emotion and contrition, and Whitney Houston, 45, with over 170M record sales, several hit movies to her credit, and a pedigree tying her to Dionne Warwick and Aretha Franklin, both have fallen on hard times lately, victims of their own fame.
According to Dr. Matel, both singers had come to realize that there were certain things about themselves that they needed to change if they were to beat the demons that have threatened their careers, and indeed their very lives.
Subo, according to close family members has been unable to cope with the fame her startling crystal clear voice has brought her, and Whitney has been spiraling out of control on drugs due to men problems since her disastrous marriage to R&B singer "Bad" Bobby Brown.
To turn things around, Dr. Patel after consultation with the duo, and confirmation from noted Climate Control Guru, Al Gore, writer, producer and stunt man for the infamous movie tear jerker, "Love Story", proceeded with the historic operation.
During a 25 hour non stop operation, halting only for a few hits of 'meth' to keep him alert, and his hands steady, Dr. Patel and his attendant physicians claimed success.
The results are said to be 'life altering for the singing Duo.
For Whitney, she received SuBo's Voice Box. SuBo received Whitney's well worn, and tried and true Vagina, and both said the trade was worth it.
Whitney just completed a disastrous Australia tour where she was said to be hopping around the stage like a 'roo', couldn't remember the words to some of her favorite songs, and her voice was squeaky and had no resonance.
Subo, who professes to be a Virgin who has never been kissed, was badly in need of a sexual organ that had some mileage on it to ease her transition into the heterosexual world of 'dating.' Fans of both say the operation was an act that had to be 'made in heaven.'
Interviewed on spilt screen, both singers say they were pleased, happy, and encouraged that they now could get on with their lives in a normal fashion.
Said SoBu, "My voice was a gift that while bringing me fame and fortune, didn't bring me happiness. With Whitney's love box, I think I can accomplish my fantasy to live as a normal woman with a regular sex life and fulfill my dreams as a sexy woman!"
Whitney concurred. "Everybody loved my love box but me. It brought me nothing but trouble, as it had a mind of it's own, and seemed to continue to make the wrong choices when it came to love, or even casual hookups.
While my box was never right for me, I know it will help SuBo find fulfillment."
Whitney added that SuBo's voice will help her get 'straight' and revive her career, saying "all I want to do now is go back to Newark, (NJ) and sing in the choir like I did as a child. Sex is out, Gospel is now back in!"
Fans are waiting to see how things are going to work out. There are positive signs, but some troubling ones too. SuBo was seen out at the "New Oasis Bar & Grill" in the close company of John Terry, and Whitney's plane from New Delhi back to Newark was delayed 2 hours after she performed a spontaneous concert in the departure lounge, and refused to board unless the in flight meal featured some Haggis.
