Elaine Paige - Paige Baffled By Boyle Album Snub

West End legend ELAINE PAIGE was baffled when SUSAN BOYLE's second album was released - because her duet with the Scottish singer had been scrapped in favour of a collaboration with "someone from the public".
Boyle shot to fame after auditioning for Simon Cowell's Britain's Got Talent TV show, and she told the music mogul she dreamed of becoming as successful as her idol Paige.
Paige subsequently labelled Boyle a "virus that swept the world", but made up for the slur by performing her track from the Chess musical I Know Him So Well with the unlikely superstar on a U.K. TV special.
The stage star claims she was told their collaboration would feature on Boyle's 2010 album The Gift, but she was baffled when she realised a duet with an unknown U.S. paramedic had been included instead.
She tells Britain's Daily Record, "I did put my part of the duet down. But they didn't do it. I don't know or understand quite why. It's a difficult scenario with Susan. The record company are very protective of her. They've made a choice not to sing with me.
"Susan has her career and I have mine. We don't need to sing with each other to have a career.
"She had this album that came out before Christmas which sold bucketloads again which is fantastic for her. But they weren't interested in her doing a duet with anybody in the business.
"I haven't heard it but I believe she did a duet on that album with someone from the public or something."

Whose loss?!!! Not Susan's, for sure. Elaine is the one here who is complaining that she wasn't included in SuBo's album. She shouldn't have to wonder after she put down the artist (S.B.) who made her name known in the U.S. & all over the globe, then tried to deny her words. Susan, meanwhile, just goes on making hit albums and not making derogatory comments about anyone. Quite a lady and with an especially beautiful voice.
