  • Good for you, Lou! Reed won't let Susan Boyle sing 'Perfect Day'

    Lou Reed prevented Susan Boyle from taking a walk on his wild side.

    According to multiple reports, the “Britain’s Got Talent” sensation was all set to sing the former Velvet Underground singer’s classic, “Perfect Day,” on “America’s Got Talent.”

    That is, until Reed got wind of her plans, and pulled the plug on the performance.

    Sources told TMZ that producers needed permission from Reed, but couldn’t get it because he’s not a big Boyle fan.

    Big surprise.

    It happened so close to her performance, Boyle didn’t have enough time to change her tune, and broke into tears.

    The still-crying star then boarded a plane in Los Angeles back to her home in London.

    But wait, he let Luciano Pavarotti sing it.

    Looks like he learned his lesson. Yikes.
