Susan Boyle’s new gig — TV documentary star

She’s the focus of a new special.

Now, we officially know why cameras have been following Susan Boyle around relentlessly as of late. According to multiple reports, the “You Have To Be There” singer is getting set to release a documentary special about her life to coincide with the release of her brand-new album “Someone to Watch Over Me” — which hits stores on Tuesday, November 1.

Here is what one source had to say about the album in a new report per the Daily Record:

“Despite the fact she’s had this enormous success in record sales, she wanted to show her fans she’s still the same Susan.

“She still lives in the same house and has a normal life. Since the beginning of 2011, she has been filmed for a fly-on-the-wall documentary about her life.”

One of the reasons for Boyle’s success has been this sort of humility she has maintained — opting to live in the same Scottish village rather than in London, and choosing as much as possible to interact with the same group of people. “Britain’s Got Talent” managed to turn Susan into a global superstar, but it has not changed her fundamentally from the person that she was before performing.

Are you hoping to watch this special?
