Blimey! Susan Boyle Makes Some Serious Bank
Remember our post about how much moolah you can rake in as an American Idol winner? Well, that’s chunk change compared to what Susan Boyle has earned as the runner-up of Britain’s Got Talent. By the time Boyle turns 49 on April 1 (almost exactly a year since she exploded on the world’s radar via the help of YouTube), the Scottish chanteuse is set to earn $6 million from sales of her chart-topping debut album I Dreamed a Dream, in addition to all her international appearances. Now she can afford the fanciest cat food at the market for her kitty Pebbles. Oh, and a mansion, too.
