Fame Was 'Wrecking Ball' to Boyle

If Susan Boyle was struck by fame like a "wrecking ball," does that mean Simon Cowell was the crane operator? In an interview with The Today Show set to air Wednesday, Boyle says that she struggled to cope with "the impact" of becoming a worldwide sensation overnight. "I guess I had to get my head around it," Boyle said. And the singer certainly had her rough moments. After losing in the Britain's Got Talent final, she had an infamous freak-out in a London hotel and also had to check into a clinic for exhaustion. But Boyle will not be fading back into obscurity—she is currently working on an album with Cowell, and despite all her difficulties, says, "I don't want it to end."
