Susan Boyle needs round-the-clock supervision and care, her family have said.

The pressures of fame have left the vulnerable singer stressed and feeling isolated, they say.

I know I couldn't handle fame and all that goes with it. I enjoy my privacy, hate large crowds, and hate flash photography. I don't think she expected this much attention. I think she'd be better singing in a Broadway play or an animated musical movie. Less face time would give her less press coverage.

You're right...that degree of fame must be very wearing. I wish her the best. She's so talented. Hope she has a chance to rest up and get out of the glare and scrutiny and regain her composure.

I don't envy her, not even all that money. Her privacy is gone. Life under the looking glass? Not for me.

I thought I read somewhere that she hasn't seen a penny of that money since she came on the scene?? Did she not receive royalties??

I think in being somewhat remedial, she is probably in over her head in the fame arena. Too bad there isn't some trustworthy person in the business who could help her. She is so sweet and naive. It is just sad to think of her being unhappy because of all this publicity in her life.

Well, she could slow it down by stopping public appearances and stuff. She chose to do this, and is really the person responsible for her condition.
