Scottish singing sensation Susan Boyle has never slept overnight in her new mansion because leaving her childhood home took her out of her "comfort zone".
The 50-year-old star, who shot to fame after impressing the judges on TV talent show Britain's Got Talent, purchased a five-bedroom estate in West Lothian, Scotland last year (10), just steps away from the modest house she once shared with her family.
She was reported to have moved back into her childhood home in April (11) because she felt out-of-touch with the local community, but Boyle admits she has never spent a whole night at her luxurious new property, which she jokingly refers to as "The Posh House".
Inviting cameras from U.S. breakfast show Today into her two homes, she explains, "The big house down the street isn't really me because I'm not the type of person to live in a big mansion. When I'm back in this space, my mum and dad's, I still feel close to them. I still have a lot of nice memories in this house. I feel (like) this is my comfort zone."
The pre-taped interview aired on Tuesday (18Oct11).
