We love her just the way she is, so we're happy to hear that Britain's Got Talent sensation Susan Boyle has put to bed any rumours that she'll shape up into a Leona Lewis before the final. In an interview, she doesn't rule out a makeover, but adds, 'For now, I'm happy the way I am, short and plump. I would not go in for Botox or anything like that.' What a relief. Because the reason Susan Boyle has become the world's sweetheart overnight is precisely because she looks - in her words - 'like a garage'. We've all got so used to linking talent and success with 'thin, young and beautiful' that not a single viewer expected the frumpy middle-aged woman to be a hit. We are shallow and appearance-obsessed. But we're very, very glad we were wrong. Almost too glad, which makes us wonder if the only reason we're all so obsessed with this 'modern-day fairytale' is because it still gives us hope that WE can get the better of Simon Cowell. After all, we're definitely hotter than her. Damn, what happened to not thinking shallow thoughts anymore? What do you think? Why are we so obsessed with Susan?

Pssst… In case you're one of the few people left in the world who missed it, Susan was the 'joke act' who had the last laugh in the first episode of the talent show. The 47-year-old Scot, who joked that she'd 'never been kissed', took the stage amidst much eye-rolling from teenagers in the audience, sniggering from Ant and Dec and visible displays of indifference from the judges. But while Susan looks like Mrs Doyle from Father Ted, she's got a voice that made Demi Moore 'teary', according to the actress's Twitter feed. Catch up here.
