This week's we-so-want-this-rumour-to-be-true-we're-going-to-repeat-it-in-the-hope-it-happens news is that Susan Boyle has scored a cover shoot with the September issue of US fashion tome Harper's Bazaar. The pictures were apparently taken at a country house in the UK and SuBo revealed she had only a mini-makeover: ‘Just a slight one. I brush up quite well.' That you do, Susan. Now there are quite a few reasons why we can't imagine this rumour being true. First, it's in a British tabloid. Second, the story acknowledges itself that Susan is one of a ‘handful' of stars being given consideration for the cover. Third, September is the most prestigious issue for any monthly fashion magazine. Fourth, hello, it's just mental! But here are a few reasons we'd love it to be true. First, it's Harpers Bazaar. Second, SuBo would get a kick out of shifting more copies than an anonymous model. Third, we'd love to see her rocking those serious Balmain shoulders. Or fourth, bleaching those bushy eyebrows. OK, enough indulgence now. Back to work... [The Mirror]
UPDATE: So it is true that Susan Boyle has been shot for the inside pages of Harpers Bazaar, but no word on the cover slot yet.
