Venting to the World

Susan Boyle is refreshing

Susan Boyle’s success has been astounding not only because she has a superb voice that produces goosebumps, she also looks like the generic middle aged woman you see in the streets. Everyone loves an underdog story, that gives people hope. It also gives older people hope, that someone can still live up to their dreams later in life.

We have grown so used to seeing starlets and singers look the same (think Britney Spears, Madonna, Cristina Aguillera, Lady Gaga and Jessica Simpson) with their beached blond hair and sexy outfits that is very refreshing to listen to a singer and enjoy their…voice.

We live in an era where the emphasis in beauty is everywhere. You want to be a famous writer? You need to look good. Editors will make sure the back cover shows a glamorous picture of you!  You want to be a successful Realtor? Make sure your picture ad is photo-shopped to make you look good-and don’t forget make up and hair to take that picture! You want to report the news on CNN, MSNBC and others? You gotta look stunning.  What happened to raw talent? What happened to not judging a book by its cover 🙂 ?

Susan’s talent is so intense that her appearance doesn’t matter. I hope they don’t give her a makeover. I don’t need to see her looking skinny in black leather, nor does she need to become a blonde. I just want to hear her voice.
