Susan Boyle’s brother told GMTV today that the Britain’s Got Talent singer has been released from a London mental health clinic and is doing better, the Associated Press reports. She was admitted last Sunday, the day after she came in second place on the UK talent competition, behind the dance troupe Diversity. Gerry Boyle says Susan suffered from an anxiety attack but now seems “a lot more like herself.” Earlier this week, Susan was reportedly invited to sing for Barack Obama on July 4.
