Piers Morgan Slams Kiri Te Kanawa Over Susan Boyle Comments

01 June - NEWS

Piers Morgan has gone on the defensive after Kiri Te Kanawa's criticising of Susan Boyle.  

2 weeks ago, Te Kanawa was asked by the BBC what her thoughts were on Susan Boyle's success.  The Dame responded by saying "I'm doing something classical, not whiz-bang. Whiz-bang disappears. It goes 'whiz' and then 'bang'. You insult me by even wanting to bring it into this conversation. I'm not interested." 

Contact Music has reported that Piers Morgan has rushed to Boyle's defense.  Morgan wrote on his blog in UK Live magazine "Dear oh Dear. Just like Elaine Paige, who recently branded Susan a 'virus', Dame Kiri appears to have morphed from a nice, jolly grande dame into a quite ghastly, jealous and bitter old crone. I'm sure that their joint fury has nothing to do with Susan's phenomenal global success, or Katherine's radiant beauty - two things that neither Ms Paige nor Dame Kiri have ever had to worry about."

Piers Morgan is one of the judges from the British "X-Factor" show, which shot Boyle to stardom.

What is it with you and susan boyle? just because someone doesn't fall all over her, you brand them "bitchy" or a "ghastly, jealous and bitter old crone." what was your opinion of them before they dissed your precious susan? no phenomenal global success? compare the two careers, sonny, elaine and susan. susan's one year and one multi platinum album to elaine's 40 plus years, 8 gold albums, 4 multi platinum albums, olivier award, obe, drama desk, and countless other awards too numerous to mention. and elaine is jealous? please. i won't even start on dame kiri. susan is a fine singer and i wish her success, but not everyone in the world will like her. get your head out of the clouds and realize that the world doesn't have to bow down to susan boyle.

Hi piers, what about your good friend sharon osbourne? who the h ll do you think you're kidding? you don't care one bit about susan boyle, you're using her, again, for attention. you can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep. you're as disgusting as she is, and that's pretty disgusting.
