Oh my! This war is getting nasty fast! TMZ reports, that Susan Boyle’s managers confirmed the news is true that Lou Reed, snubbed “A Perfect Day” from her. However, Lou Reed’s lawyers spoke out and said the news isn’t true. Lou Reed’s reps said he wouldn’t do something like this.
See y’all? I told you, Lou Reed wouldn’t do anything like this. I’m sure we’ll hear from Lou Reed himself when he starts doing interviews in the media about this controversy.
Susan needs to get over herself and her ego. Sounds like she’s trying to get more attention off of Lou Reed to promote her own music. Bitch!
TMZ is the first to report that Susan Boyle was to perform on “America’s Got Talent” earlier this week, but she walked off the show in tears due to the fact that Lou Reed confronted her about not wanting her to perform a song he wrote called, “A Perfect Day”. It is a well known song he wrote with his legendary band, The Velvet Underground. She didn’t ask his permission to perform the song and he wouldn’t give permission for her to sing it because he simply is no fan of, Susan Boyle.
In reality, I don’t think Lou Reed would be this mean. He don’t seem like that type of guy. I think Lou himself will speak out on this story soon to clear everything up. Maybe he’ll say this story is bullshit and made up, but maybe he’ll say there is some truth to this, don’t know. He seems like a very friendly and gracious guy. He supported all musical acts as he has performed, “A Perfect Day”, with many other famous artists in the past.
I vote BULLSHIT on this story, that it’s not true at all. Lou Reed is a professional musician. He’s been playing music for way over 30 years, his whole life revolved around music. He does allow other artists to cover his songs as well. This news is tabloids, I’m pretty sure it is.
Btw, Lou Reed is a favorite artist of mine, always has been, loved him and the Velvet Underground. Wonderful songwriter.
