Rosie O'Donnell on Susan Boyle: 'Shrek comes to life'

Posted on

Entertainer Rosie O’Donnell was among the millions of Americans who were blown away by Susan Boyle’s performance at Britain’s Got Talent. Interviewed while showcasing her artwork at a Florida gallery on Sunday, O’Donnell told People the world should “enjoy (Boyle’s performance) for what it was.” “Here is this freaky miss, a fat, ugly girl, like Shrek comes to life, directing energy towards her soul,” O’Donnell told the magazine. “This was so rare … something authentic in a world that is usually manufactured. It was a perfect moment which will never happen again.”
