Whiny Les Miz Singing Lady Has Nervous Breakdown

Because she lost.

Obviously, I'm being sarcastic.  The whole thing is rather sad.

But not entirely unpredictable.  Fame is a hardship, and instantaneous worldwide fame destroys.  Going from a quiet anonymous life to life-under-the-fishbowl must be extremely straining. 

Here's hoping she gets well.  In fact, I hope Susan Boyle makes the decision to retire, thumbing her nose at the lucrative money she was sure to receive (even by coming in second place) from tours, records, etc.  It would be a long overdue slap in the face to our celebrity culture.
