Lou Reed has nothing against Susan Boyle

Despite rumors that Lou Reed denied Susan Boyle the right to perform Reed’s song “Perfect Day” on America’s Got Talent Wednesday night, representatives for Reed claim that he had nothing to do with it.  Apparently the real reason for the performance being canceled was that due to a clerical error, the song could not be cleared in time for airing on an American network.

Unfortunately for Boyle, she did not have a back-up song prepared, and since everyone is sick to death of hearing her sing “I Dreamed a Dream,” the producers elected to scrap the performance altogether.  I’m not sure how smart a decision that was, seeing as Boyle’s 15 minutes of fame are just about up, and if she wants to stay in the public eye, she needs to, well, stay in the public eye.
