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.
