The hub bub surrounding Britain's Got Talent Susan Boyle's appearance.
Washington Post fashion editor Robin Givhan has decided that Ms. Boyle needs a make over due to industry standards. That's right "industry standards". At one point I believe she used the word professionalism. snort. I would like to ask what standards those might be. Stick figures for bodies, botox, implants, jeans that cost as much as my mortgage? You mean those standards? Ms. Boyle walked out on stage wearing a pleasant looking dress, a dress that was rather age appropriate in my opinion. She wasn't scantily clad like most in the "industry," she is a bit overweight but I am of the opinion she should shed pounds (or shall I say stones) for health reasons and not for some TMZ viewer's pleasure. She wasn't wearing jammies like the woman I saw walking back from the grocery store (complete with slippers!) But a normal dress.
I say, leave the decision up to Ms. Boyle after all it is HER body, we already have enough plastic Bratz dolls to look at thank you very much. Instead of focusing on her not so hotness we should perhaps focus on her beauty, which is her voice; and perhaps the Western world should not be so surprised that a plain looking woman can sing extremely well.
OK snarky Jennie is going back in the box now. I am dreaming of an afternoon filled with non tantrum throwing kids but smiling ones and an easily prepared dinner.
