You know you’ve arrived when American comedians start making jokes about you; so just in case there was any lingering doubt that Susan Boyle was a bona fide international star, Joan Rivers has had a pop at her Christmas album, The Gift.
Rivers, who is known for basically going not finding anything off limits, including making jokes about women being happy that their husbands had died in the Twin Towers attacks only weeks after it happened, said that the album has ‘sucked the joy’ out of her Chrimbo.
‘Listening to Susan Boyle's new Christmas CD,’ Rivers wrote on Twitter. ‘It makes one want to take the turkey out of the oven and put your head in it... dreary.
‘Susan's CD is called The Gift. Hint - don't unwrap it. She has sucked the joy out of the holiday season.’
