Maybe it's true that blonds may have more fun - but apparently, brunettes and redheads know how to pull a joke or two on the media, as well.
Susan Boyle caused quite a stir over the weekend, when the Scottish beauty was photographed in London with a much lighter hair-do than her sexy trademark, her dark brown locks.
Several newspapers and internet sites even posted stories proclaiming "Our Susan Goes Blond" and Ms Boyle even posted a message on her Twitter page.
"I'm crazy about my new blonde hair!" she wrote.
But on Monday morning, Susan gave up the tease and revealed the new hairdo is fake.
"It's a wig! Did I have you fooled?" Susan wrote on her blog. "Next time I might just choose a full beard!" joked the Scotish Songbird. I did one of those photo shoot things this weekend and they put this hair piece on my head! I haven't taken it off since, because I'm really loving the look. I've been wearing it around London and everyone thought it was my real hair! Bet they won't do that with a big beard."
And while Susan's new look is only temporary, could it be something she might want to do for long-term?
"It's making me want to dye my hair and maybe actually grow a beard before the cold winters," she added. Then did her little tail-twisting motion she usually does when pulling one's leg.
