Boyle Slams 'Childish' Reed Over Perfect Day Ban

SUSAN BOYLE was stunned when LOU REED banned her from singing his classic tune PERFECT DAY on U.S. TV, because she couldn't believe one of her heroes was so "childish".
The Scottish singing sensation was left heartbroken after she was told she was not allowed to cover the song on America's Got Talent just hours before her big performance in September (10).
Reed later insisted the ban was due to licensing laws in the American market, but Boyle does not believe his excuse.
Talking to Piers Morgan for his Life Stories TV show, she says, "That's his childishness, not mine. It was a bit childish on his part. A man of his calibre and his talent, a bit childish.
"Should that be changed I'd be happy to do it again. I thought he was being childish. Mr Reed, I have respect for you as an artist but you ought to be more considerate."

Susan, YOU are a class act! No matter who's song you sing, or don't, your fans are behind you 100%, and we'll always love you. I was there on 9/8/2011 to see your taping, having taken 4 buses (in my wheelchair), and 3 hrs travel time to go the 16 miles from my home, and I will do it again, and again, and again. You can never disappoint your fans, only "childish" songwriters do! You love us, and that shows in every song you sing. God Bless you Sweetheart! You are so beautiful! Stay grounded. You know THEY won't win!

Correction to my previous comment: I was at CBS on 9/8/2010, not 2011!
