No good deed goes unpunished. Susan Boyle was returning home last night when she reportedly encountered a young man inside her council house in Blackburn, Scotland. “The owner was very distressed to find someone had been within her home,” said local police. “And we are keen to speak to anyone who can assist with our investigations.” A 16-year-old was detained in connection with the trespassing, but released without charge. “I’m fine. It’s in the hands of the police now,” she told fans outside her home this morning.
Ironically, Boyle had just flown back from London, where she recorded her vocal for Simon Cowell‘s charity single for Haitian relief, a cover of R.E.M.‘s “Everybody Hurts” (a peculiar choice, considering the song’s subject is teenage depression—is Simon worried Haiti will kill itself?). Among the other stars joining Boyle on the track are Mariah Carey, Miley Cyrus, Bon Jovi, Robbie Williams, Mika, Leona Lewis, Take That and Rod Stewart—whose presence reportedly made Boyle “shy” at the recording. D’ya still think he’s sexy, Susan?
