Lou Reed pays tribute to Susan Boyle after Scottish collaboration-SEE VIDEO


Lou Reed and Susan Boyle

Famous rocker Lou Reed paid tribute to Susan Boyle last weekend after he helped her make a video for his classic song “Perfect Day”.

The stars had fallen out in recent months when Reed refused Boyle permission to perform his iconic track on America's Got Talent. But it later emerged a legal glitch was the reason Reed pulled the plug on the Scottish performers rendition.

Meanwhile Boyle described Reed as “childish” during her tell all interview with Piers Morgan which was screened over the weekend.

In an unusual twist of events the pair have made amends and collaborated for the music video of Boyle’s rendition of “Perfect Day”, which was set in Scotland.

Reed told the Sunday Mail: "I wanted to create a beautiful and intimate piece shot in Susan's native Scotland and she quickly agreed."

The music video was shot at Lock Lomond earlier this month despite constant wind and rain.

According to E! Weekly, the “Take a Walk on the Wild Side” star came up with the concept himself for the atmospheric music video.

Boyle who is from from Blackburn, West Lothian in Scotland said: "I loved that Lou understood how much it meant to me to film in Scotland. I didn't mind how much it rained or blew a gale - I enjoyed every minute."

A source from the shoot added: "Every element that could have been thrown at us was. Torrential rain, gale force winds and fog.

"There's a stunt double we used during a cliff scene and her wig flew off. Susan was there singing Perfect Day and the weather was the complete opposite."

Susan Boyle's latest album was released on Tuesday.
