Raining On The Parade
I'm happy for Susan Boyle. She stunned the world, and has her time in the spotlight. I happen to love the song she sang, and she did it justice. However, I have these sour predictions to make about her rise to fame and it's influence. I'm also aware of the fact she was a ratings ringer.
- The darling women will fall victim to media masters that will wring her out for all the dollars they can make off of her. She'll get a slice of the pie, but nothing near to what is fair.
- This women that has never been kissed, will have many an opportunistic Cassanovas knocking at her door. Miss Boyle, get that prenup. Moreover, Miss Boyle, if it seems to good to be true, maybe it is.
- Future contestants on these talent shows will take on a dowdy appearance, in order to recreate the Boyle effect. It's gonna get contrived. The build up to her pre-performance is the new template.
- People will still judge a book by its cover.
BTW she made me cry and feel good. I'm grateful for the experience of watching her perform. It reminded me this heart still loves to see people rise and take flight. Take care of yourself Miss Boyle.
