Rage Against The Machine invite Susan Boyle onstage for summer gigs – Daily Gossip

Madonna kid's Mohawk, Cheryl to tell all, Mika's wedding – your music gossip stop

Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today’s top gossip:

Rage Against The Machine vocalist Zack de la Rocha has invited Susan Boyle to sing ‘Killing In The Name’ with the band at their UK gigs this summer. Despite Rage Against The Machine beating Simon Cowell – who manages Boyle – to the Number One spot in the anti-‘X Factor’ campaign last Christmas, the frontman says he’s keen to make amends with the music mogul. “The truth is Simon‘s shows occasionally produce talent,” de la Rocha explained, adding: “We love Susan Boyle, she is hot. To show there are no hard feelings we would like her to perform onstage with us this summer. She is a great vocalist and we would love to perform ‘Killing In The Name’ with her. Everybody knows her in the US and she can add her vocals to anything. It would be an honour for us” (The Sun).
