Susan Boyle breaks her silence


europe Susan Boyle

About two years ago, it seemed as though Susan Boyle disappeared into thin air. But the Scottish singer has finally cleared the air. For the past 18 months, Boyle has been out of the limelight focusing on her personal life after a health care caused doctors to tell her to “lose weight'.
Boyle was diagnosed Type 2 diabetes which prompted her to turn her attention to her health. Boyle also struggles with Asperger's syndrome. Boyle has followed a rock path in the past two years after she lost her sister Bridie McCaw in October 2015.
“I needed to stop eating sweeties and cakes,” Boyle told The Mirror. “It's the bane of my life.”
The singer may have lost more than two stones (13 kilograms), but that doesn't automatically mean she'll be performing any time soon. Fans are eagerly awaiting a live performance since the last time did in 2015.
Due to Boyle's diabetes and Asperger's syndrome, she said she may never sing live again. The 55-year-old singer confessed her Asperger's syndrome is so severe, she is not able for the time being to set tour dates and there is a good change she might not be able to bring herself to sing live again.
“I haven't performed live because I've been ill,” she said. “The short answer is that it has been connected to my Asperger's syndrome.”
Her condition means that her behavior could get out of control at any time. Boyle could become stressed and that could lead to a meltdown like the one she had at London Heathrow airport. These meltdowns or unpredictable behavior in general could make live shows a risky bet.
Her new album, A Wonderful World, is due to be released on November 25.
Susan Boyle came to international attention wen she appeared as a contestant on the TV program Britain's Got Talent on 11 April 2009. The judges and the audience showed themselves skeptical when she appeared on stage, but when she started singing “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables, everyone fell prey to the spell of her voice. Boyle hadn't even finished when standing ovation erupted.
Boyle's debut album, I Dreamed a Dream (2009) became the UK's best-selling debut album of all time and the best-selling album of 2009 in the US. With the release of I Dreamed of Dream and its lead-off singles “I dreamed a dream” and “Wild horses”, Boyle made £5 million.
Susan Boyle's story is inspiring and her struggle with Asperger's Syndrome is touching. In her words: “I was told I had brain damage. I always knew it was an unfair label. Now I have a clearer understanding of what's wrong and I feel relieved and a bit more relaxed about myself.”
“I was slightly brain damaged at birth, and I want people like me to see that they shouldn't let a disability get in the way. I want to raise awareness. I want to turn my disability into ability.”
She is also an inspiration for overcoming her struggles. “There are enough people in the world who are going to write you off. You don't need to do that to yourself.”
