Susan Boyle Released From Hospital, Goes Shopping

Five days after she was checked into a London mental health center since losing last week's 'Britain's Got Talent' finale, Susan Boyle went shopping.

The Scottish singing sensation enjoyed a shopping spree in North London alongside her doctor, Sarah Lotzof. Boyle appeared to be upbeat as she shopped, and even stopped for photographs for eager paparazzi.

Her mental problems after appearing on the reality show, which was said to have caused her exhaustion and anxiety attacks, began a national debate about the effects and pressures of instant celebrity.

"If you could only imagine to have someone plucked out of the blue, who has a magnificent talent, the whole world gets to know her," Paula Abdul said last week. "The pressure becomes overwhelming. When everyone touts you to win, and you've never experienced that before, it's overwhelming."

Boyle's brother, Gerry, believes her mental breakdown stemmed from her fear that her singing career was all but over after she failed to win the talent competition.

"Things are becoming clearer for her now. She's now beginning to believe that, 'Yes indeed, I will be a singer'," he told GMTV. "The conversation has now moved on from the Priory to talk about her musical career. She is feeling much better. She is much happier. She seems a lot more like herself."

Boyle will miss a few legs of the 'Britain's Got Talent' tour as she continues her recovery, however, she is expected to join the tour on June 12.
