Memo: NB TO SIMON COWELL & DAVID GEFFEN – SUSAN BOYLE SHOULD RECORD A DUET WITH THE POPE
The woman from Scotland who has had over 700 million people view her Britain’s Got Talent audition performance of I Dreamed A Dream from Les Miserables, should so record a duet with The Pope whose music CD, Alma Mater drops on November 30th for the Christmas Market.
These two (supposedly) mature virgins are both releasing a debut music album each, and who have interested audiences of hundreds of millions globally… are THE ticket in debut artists with huge global audience appeal (sorry egocentric pop star kids, but THEY ARE!). (more…)
From Hollywood, here’s your top 10 celeb news bites today, here on Horiwood.Com:
We said 6 weeks ago that “song choices” was the card Simon Cowell was always going to tout as being what he could add to the Susan Boyle package. Simon thinks he’s an expert Talent Manager you know. He’s even getting paid $100 million to appear on American Idol each season, becuase somehow the world believes that Cowell is.
With Scotland’s Susan Boyle though, she didn’t need Cowell to make her famous. Cowell had suddenly lost his ‘ace’ card he promises new insecure artists, that he can make them famous. In Boyle’s case, she was already the most famous new singer around the globe with her debut audition of Britain’s Got Talent.
Well, Simon is cunning. He’s a master at justifying the millions he charges to manipulate singers and the public. So he created a “meltdown” saga with Boyle, when she didn’t win the competition.
To be a ‘savior’, one has to create a crises. Simon did that really nicely. His ‘savior’ moment is about how he could assist Boyle with ‘song choices.’ In the age of iTunes, that’s quite hard for any intelligent person to believe!!! Boyle is more than capable of sorting through song choices on the iTunes library herself, like anyone of us can too, but thanks anyway Simon or that latest round of bull crap!
Talking to Extra TV, here’s what Cowell had to say, “She’s extraordinarily good on record. We’re not going to throw out some souvenir album of show tunes which everyone expected. We went through about 350 to 400 songs to choose from. She was blown away by some of the song choices and she’s going to surprise a lot of people with this record.”
This is not rocket science! Cowell tries to make it seem harder than what it is. Yawn!
In the meantime, SuBo amused herself amidst all of the smug Cowellry, with a make over. She’s looking good!

Wow… this has got to be one of the greatest rock tributes ever! Bono and U2 kicked off their 360 Degrees World Tour with a bang paying tribute to Michael Jackson.
The super rockers dedicated their song, Angel of Harlem to Michael Jackson in Barcelona, Spain.
What a Epic moment in music history! And also, a brand new and exciting beginning. May we all look at the man in the mirror, and ask what WE can do, to make the WORLD a better place. This moment is right up there, with Susan Boyle being discovered this year on Britain’s Got Talent. SuBo also made us look at ‘the man’ in the mirror inside all of us, and taught us to see beauty in music and life, in a different way, regardless of the perceived ‘visible flaws’ and eccentricities of the musical vessel bringing the gift of music.
Music is a God given gift. Music transcends ALL divides. Thanks Bono, MJ and SuBo for that gift to us all. The Irish and the Scottish, just totally get it… as world changing minority cultures who have the ability to rise up, like African Americans have in American history, and truly touch the world. MJ through his music broke down all racial divides. His best story is still being told, through the music.
Go U2! Their tour is going to be the biggest world tour ever! You can just feel it in the air. Epic, Epic, Epic!

There’s a lot of money to be made in ‘other people’s talent.’ Simon Cowell is living proof of that. As previously reported Cowell is joining forces with British billionaire Sir Philip Green to set up their own talent TV shows, TopShop.
The New York Post reports that the duo will establish a new production company for the UK and US talent pools. Simon Cowell’s contract with American Idol is in negotiations for renewal, and it looks like Cowell has the upper hand with Fox Networks, to negotiate the best deal ever on American Idol.
A source says, he is on track to be the highest paid TV star. Which means that Oprah is going to start talent shows soon. You just know, Queen O will not be beat when it comes to being the #1 earner on TV.

After making talent Show creator and TV producer, Simon Fuller uber rich, the highly exploitative Simon Cowell now wants to be him.
Everyone’s favorite snarky gay man in a straight man’s body, Cowell, has announced that he’s collaborating Sir Phillip Green, a British retail billionaire (behind The TopShop brand). The duo are hoping to do exactly what Simon Fuller is doing in both the UK and America by developing talent shows.
After watching Cowell and Fuller exploit Susan Boyle so repeatedly in her treatment and handling, it’s now wonder why Cowell is so all up in controlling Susan Boyle’s mix and star power right now. He wants SuBo’s 300 million strong global audiences for his new show.
One still has to admire this power hungry empire builder though. Ambition is always good, if used to the right end result. Giving to others. Let’s hope with this new freedom that he treats talent better in his new shows than how he’s exploited Susan Boyle of Scotland.
At the Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, LA premiere, Kim Kardashian said that she was only there because Megan Fox was in the film. “I have a big girl crush on Megan Fox” Kardashian told E! Entertainment. “I think Megan Fox is hot… and I don’t even have girl crushes, ever!” Nice encouragement from KK towards megan Fox’s rising star in Tinsel Town. Love it! Kardashian knows how to work a red carpet for her own press. Tres smart!

This is just so wrong! Simon Cowell and Simon Fuller are unbelievable! When will the exploitation of Susan Boyle end?
The UK Sun is reporting, Tuesday, that Simon Cowell and Simon Fuller want more blood from Susan Boyle’s shining star.
What is needed for Boyle right now, is a hit record. She has the global audience numbers to sell a hit record, asap, but Fuller and Cowell continue to ring the last drops of blood out of a golden goose, that is Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle.
There was no way around it for him. Simon Cowell has had to address the mistreatment of Susan Boyle reports that are plaguing him at the organisers of Britain’s Got Talent. The man who reportedly manages talent well, was exposed by Susan Boyle for how he actually grossly mistreats his talent, for his own ends.
In a lengthy editorial written for The UK’s Daily Mail, Cowell details the ways in which he failed Scottish songstress, Susan Boyle.
“I’m the first to hold my hands up and admit I’ve made mistakes,” he writes. “Looking back on it all, it has become clear to me that we didn’t handle the situation with Susan as well as we could have.”
Though it’s nice to see Simon apologize for Boyle’s mistreatment, how Simon Cowell and Simon Fuller, milked Susan Boyle’s global popularity for all it was worth and could be milked for, to their own ends, needs a more clear apology than the drivel he served up to the Daily Mail.
They exploited and robbed Susan of winning the competition, and then preceded to set her up as a victim of meltdown, rather than mistreatment. Meanwhile, it was only because of Susan Boyle that the world gave a remote toss about their show. Cowell was ruthless in pretending that the show had many talented people in it, when really Boyle was the big draw card. She deserves a big check as well as an apology from Cowell and Simon Fuller if the multi-millionaires are truly sorry for how they exploited SuBo!
Meanwhile, Susan Boyle continues to wow. Her Wembley performance is brills!
