Susan Boyle, who looked as if she was on the edge of madness as the pressure stemming from Britain's Got Talent competition built, is improving by leaps and bound.
"I want to take on the world," the 48-year-old Scottish spinster told News Of The World. "I've got my sleeves up ready."
Released from the London mental health clinic last week after a string of bizarre public meltdowns and crushing loss to an obscure dance troupe, Boyle is expected to record her debut album in London this week.
And she will have help as well, as Today reported that Boyle has a legal team, financial manager and doctor with her as ammunition to the fast-paced life she has stepped into the bright, hot spotlight.
