Susan Boyle steps out in style in home town


By Andrea McCallum

SCOTTISH superstar Susan Boyle stepped out in style in her home town yesterday (Wednesday) as she ventured to the local shops.

The 48-year-old left her home in Blackburn, West Lothian, with a beaming smile and posed for photographs in her new gear.

Her outing comes just a week after reports of erratic behaviour – and growing concern for her ability to cope with stardom.

But with her welcoming gestures and care-free attitude she looked ready for anything.

Underneath her stylish grey knee-length winter coat, Susan twinned smart black trousers with a black top which was set off by a big white bow around the neckline.

And to top it all off, she wore fancy black and white patterned heels complete with a black designer handbag.

The songstress’ hair – which appeared shorter – was not styled and she wore no makeup for the shopping trip.

A week ago Susan was dressed to the nines for her highly-anticipated appearance on America’s Oprah Winfrey TV chat show.

She emerged transformed in a long brown fitted gown and dangly diamond earrings for her second interview with the world-famous host.

But only a day earlier, Susan had launched a foul-mouthed rant her local café in Blackburn.

She stormed into the diner and complained to staff about her PA who apparently told her she needed to go on a diet.

The next day – whilst waiting to travel to Chicago for the Oprah show – she stunned passengers at Heathrow Airport when she started singing and dancing with a mop.

The Britain’s Got Talent star – who has sold more than four million copies of her debut album worldwide – has been under the spotlight since her TV appearance last year.

Susan’s spokesman said the airport incident was Susan being ‘playful’ and that Susan apologized for any offence she caused.
