I have always had a morbid fascination with Lisa Marie. Probably because she is the only child of the biggest superstar in the world, Elvis. I grew up listening to his music and watching his movies because my Mom was a huge fan.
I couldn’t even fathom growing up with a father as famous as Elvis. He was a gigantic celebrity with worldwide fame. Even today, people flock to Graceland by the thousands, and Elvis impersonators are still popular. I think even in today’s times, anyone over the age of 12 knows who Elvis is.
Considering how huge her father was, she was mostly protected from the public eye growing up; especially after Elvis’ tragic death. I’m sure her Mother, Priscilla, had a lot to do with shielding her child from the paparazzi and trying to allow the only daughter of an icon to have a somewhat normal life. And all things considered, I think she turned out alright.
And followed in her father’s footsteps as a singer. I like her music, and think she’s got talent. Notice that sneer?
So, here’s to Lisa Marie Presley. To Priscilla Presley as well, for I’m sure it wasn’t an easy task protecting her famous daughter from people who would have loved to exploit her for monetary gain. And the from bottom-feeders who were still trying to make a buck off of Elvis’ name. Thank goodness reality shows weren’t a thing back then!
Thanks for reading, and be FIERCE!
