Piers Morgan Slams Kiri Te Kanawa Over Susan Boyle Comments
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.
