Susan Boyle's new album cover features the global superstar as you have seen her before--down-to-earth and natural.
Boyle's handlers are making sure that the "Hairy Angel's" appeal is not diluted by Hollywood gloss. On the cover of the 48-year-old's debut album I Dreamed A Dream, she appears in all her wrinkled glory.
Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden said: "She needs to stay exactly as she is because that's the reason we love her. She just looks like anybody who could live on your street.
"The minute we turn her into a glamourpuss is when it's spoilt. For now we'll keep her exactly as she is because that's why we've all fallen in love with her."
Ironically, how she appears on the cover may make no difference. Her album, out November 23, has already topped Amazon's bestsellers list, with tens of thousands of copies sold as pre-orders. It is certain to go straight to the top of the Billboard chart.
