Susan Boyle told Oprah she was never crazy - just exhausted - when she lost out at the grand final of "Britain's Got Talent."
Boyle, 48, who made her debut appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Show yesterday (Tuesday) told her host she “hadn’t eaten for about a week” before she had a mini breakdown.
“I hadn’t slept. The feeling was one of extreme exhaustion. It’s a chapter of my life that’s over with now,” said Boyle, who looked the part in a long structured ball gown and a nifty slicked back hair do.
The Scottish singer, who shot to stardom after being discovered on Britain’s Got Talent last year, told Oprah she “was born to do” what she does.
Boyle was hospitalized for a few days after the show ended causing a media frenzy. Several papers accused the singer of being crazy but yesterday Boyle said it was just sheer exhaustion from her workload that brought her down.
Boyle sang a song from her new album brining many of the audience members to tears.
