Britain’s Got Talent finalist Susan Boyle sees Rihanna as one of her pop rivals and believes it would be a great idea if they could work together on an R&B project, although she is unsure how it would sound...
“I’ve got hard competition. But there are certain types of music that you’re good at and certain types that you’re not. I mean, would I be good at R&B? I suppose you never know,” said the I Dreamed A Dream singer. “Maybe me and Rihanna could get together, I could dye my hair purple,” she added.
And although she has had the privilege of performing in front of the Pope, while her second LP The Gift has topped the album charts across the globe, the 49-year-old Scottish star still dreams of meeting Beatles singer Paul McCartney.
“The Beatles are still around now, their records live on. I hope to be in the same caliber one day,” she said. “I know I’ve got a lot to do yet though. I’d like to meet Paul. If he ever wanted to perform together, I’d have no problem with it — here I am, baby! Everybody has their own draw. Meeting the Pope was an entirely different atmosphere, it was a spiritual journey I was on. But spiritually, meeting Paul would be up there as well.”
