Susan Boyle has now spoken about her famous monikers in a candid new interview, while revealing the biggest misconception about her. The Britain’s Got Talent favourite was referred to both as Subo and the Hairy Angel by fans, and they have since stuck despite more than a decade having passed.
When asked what people often get wrong about her, the 58-year-old said it was that she doesn’t laugh at herself.
“I have a good sense of humour and a thick skin,” the singer told OK! Magazine.
Susan continued: “I was known as the Hairy Angel after my audition and it didn’t bother me at all.
“I was also known as SuBo, which made me feel like I was a footballer. It’s a nickname I’m stuck with. Maybe I’ll get a range of sportswear!”
