Susan Boyle praises Simon Cowell

Susan Boyle has praised Simon Cowell as a "genius".

The 55-year-old singer revealed the music mogul - who discovered her on 'Britain's Got Talent' - chose all of the songs for her new album 'A Wonderful World' and she trusts him completely.

She told Event magazine: "I had a lot of fun making it. Simon picked the songs. I'll always put my trust in Simon - he's a genius.

"I don't see that much of him, but I hear from him a lot.

Although it was claimed last year that Simon was planning to drop her from his Syco label, she said: "All those things were totally untrue and I had had a very successful meeting with [Cowell's] Syco Records."

The album is a collection of covers of famous love songs and Susan is thrilled with the romantic record.

She said: "It's very romantic, isn't it? Especially at the time of year when people are looking for something extra-special. Perfect for a couple who meet for the first time."

While Susan says she has never been in love, she revealed she took inspiration from her parents for the music.

She said: "The songs were favourites of my mum and dad."

Susan had a cameo in Ben Stiller's 'Zoolander 2' and is taking acting lessons in order to land more acting roles.

She said: "Ben Stiller was very clever and very funny. I'm doing improvisation and textual reading - it's about analysing characters and building things up."
