Susan Boyle: Never Being Kissed

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on April 23, 2009

The instant popular singing figure Susa Boyle told viewers of the U.K. TV talent show that she lived alone, had a cat called Pebbles, and had “never been kissed.”
Boyle, who has joined in numerous talent shows, used the line to curry favor with the audience. She told a TV interviewer from U.K. breakfast show GMTV, “That was made as a joke! Never been kissed? I’ve never stopped.”

“Angel or crazy for publicity? You decide,” was how fan site CafeArjun.com responded. “I’m forced to believe it was all a planned show!”
Popwrap.com branded her a “one-trick pony,” while NowPublic.com was more understanding: “Do you think a peck on the cheek counts for being kissed?” the site asked.

But Boyle’s admission has done nothing to dampen the ardor of her millions of new fans. Many believe Boyle, who has been nicknamed the “hairy angel” according to Britain’s Daily Mail, should be declared the winner of the show right now.
“Now that Susan Boyle has been acknowledged as a singing sensation for her beautiful voice, I think it would be a good idea to declare her the winner of Britain’s Got Talent,” wrote C.J. Crane from Mallorca in Spain.
“I am glad Simon Cowell looks like he’s going to give her a recording contract,” said Raymond Rees from Wales.

Binghamton Shooting

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on April 4, 2009

A certain gunman opened fire at an immigration services center in downtown Binghamton on Friday, killing 13 people before authorities came and found him dead, officials said.

A law enforcement official said the body of the man believed to be the gunman was found in an office of the American Civic Association building. The official was not authorized to speak publicly about the details of an ongoing hostage situation and was talking on condition of anonymity.

The gunman barricaded the rear door of the building with his car before entering through the front door, firing his weapon, the official said. It wasn’t clear whether the gunman was included in the number of dead provided by the governor.

The Binghamton Press & Sun Bulletin reported that citizenship classes had been scheduled Friday at the center. The Binghamton SWAT team responded, and the FBI was sending hostage negotiators and an evidence response team to the scene. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was also sending agents to Binghamton.

Indications were that the shooter was a young male, the law enforcement official said. The American Civic Association is an organization that helps immigrants in the Binghamton area with naturalization applications, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Michael Douglas Facelift

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on April 3, 2009

Michael Douglas has been rumored to have undergone surgical operation for a face-lift – after photographs showed scarring around his ears.

The 60-year-old actor was pictured leaving a restaurant with wife Catherine Zeta-Jones and tell-tale signs of surgery seemed obvious. The ‘Fatal Attraction’ star had a plaster close to his left ear and a weeping wound by his right one. An individual had noticed at a Barbados restaurant said: “Michael looked like he had cuts around his ears.

“He didn’t have the scars on Monday (28.03.05) but the next day they were clearly visible. He looked very strange.” It is not the first time the Oscar-winning actor has been at the centre of a plastic surgery riddle.

He was alleged to have had his skin around his eyes tightened before he married Catherine – 25 years his junior – in 2000. ‘Ocean’s Twelve’ star Catherine, who has two children with Michael, is also alleged to have had work done to her eyes in 2001, but reportedly hid the scars behind dark sunglasses.

Michael’s spokesperson Allen Burry denied the star had a facelift, but said he had some non-cancerous lesions removed.
