She didn't have to buy a cavernous mansion but I'm really surprised she didn't buy at least a middle class house. I guess a small cramped house is what she's used to and what she likes. Surely she has at least a few million.

She actually bought a really nice house across town, but after living in it a couple of weeks she couldn't stand it and went back to her old house, giving the new house to her niece
Thank you, Aunt Susan

I always love the story about Kurt Cobain. When he bought his big, rock star mansion? He'd spend most of his time in the walk in closet. Because he wasn't used to grand spaces.
I love it that Susan Boyle is doing the same sort of thing. (Frankly, it's what I'd do too.)

I love it, if you're alone and probably not very social, why have a ton of space.
What struck me is the comment that 9 people used to live in that home. How? Where? What type of family could fit or even feed nine people if that's the house you live in?

I don't think she's a lesbian. I don't think she's ever had sex with anyone, male or female. And I don't think she has Asperger's Syndrome, either. That was the excuse given for her bizarre behavior, but it doesn't fit. Her publicity team figured it would sound good to say she's an Aspie because the stereotype of people with Asperger's is this: a socially awkward person who is nonetheless very intelligent and gifted in some way. It sounded a lot better than saying she's brain damaged, which I heard she is, because of oxygen deprivation at birth.

She's a diagnosed autistic. Like most autistics she doesn't take well to change and that's surely why she couldn't handle living in the new house for more than a couple of weeks.
She has a minder who has to travel with her on her tour dates. She's had several incidents over the years of going way off kilter from being overwhelmed by all the different things she's had to experience. I've read they finally found the magic solution to enable them to keep her grounded and feeling safe when she's away from home.

She's a true innocent. I think there's not a bad bone in her body and she very likely thinks the very best of everyone. And I think that's what was her biggest problem once she became a professional singer. For someone like her, in the business she ended up in that is chock-a-block with people who only want to get whatever they can out of her and then be done with her, I can see why there was a need to have people with her at all times on the road to protect her. I just hope whoever is taking care of her is doing a good job.

It's very simple. Her emotional issues make change difficult. She tried living a lifestyle closer to her wealth, and after 2 weeks couldn't handle it and went back where she was most comfortable, the home she'd lived in all her life.

I'm far too cynical to believe that it wasn't all planned. The audience probably didn't know, but I think the judges would have gotten a whisper of what was going to happen. They were just told to put on their most mocking and skeptical faces to really drive home the surprise. And then everyone could have a teachable moment about "judging a book by it's cover."
