A persons life is full of the good and the bad-triumph and tragedy, black and white.
GK I'm sure will stress the positive and his negative pages will be in the minority-but all lives have a negative side as long as..... those negatives are not made to sound like thats all there was.
Most welcome Georgia
We all have opinions but people tend to believe those with M.D. behind their name.
I think Elvis loved his daughter very much, his life was not a normal 9-5 job.
I wish the truth could be told by the man himself, and all our "Opinions" would no doubt be staggering, untrue or shocking? At least it would be FACT.
Personally, I hate it when people do this to Elvis.:doh:
Unfortunately some of these ppeople are ready to ignore friendship just for getting money !!!http://www.animationplayhouse.com/smiley_tongue.gif
Lisa Marie gets very angry at her dads "best friends." Though how much she can legally do, evidently not much. An interview with Lisa:
PLAYBOY: There's another song, Nobody Noticed It, that seems like it might be about your dad.
PRESLEY: I wrote that to relieve myself of something I saw on TV about him, on the E! True Hollywood Story.
It actually did me in, emotionally, for days.
What made me angry was the interviews with the mother****ers who hung around him.
These *****s were so disgusting--they helped him go down and were actually worse than he was.
It infuriated me.
They were trying to take away his dignity, the one thing that was most important to him.
And I needed to strike back at that.
I happened to be going to the studio, and I got the melody in my head and started to cry.
Are not the 'good things' we know about him also private? If the people who knew about them had not told them we would have not known they happened either. We never complain about this and accept them as facts...
oh please give me a break, like Lisa or her mother was/has been worried about his dignity. what a load of garbage. Lisa is ok with all the things her mother has said but the friends of elvis are bad. what a holier than thou line of bull.
to really admire a person you must admire all of them and that is what his friends did. they took the good and not so good and stayed his friend. Elvis was not the perfect friend either. he had his faults. many in relationships, but over all he was more good than not.
people are expected to extend the good graces to Elvis in abundance and yet the friends are rung through a wringer.
Elvis's love seemed long standing and unconditional, I don't believe for one second that what Red and all wrote stopped him from loving them. he prob. was real sad and ticked off, but Elvis seemed to love people better than a lot of people do w/o mean hateful judgement.
as far as this jo goes, this is nothing that she has not said before, and it is one thing. can we compare the wonderful things she has said about Elvis and the love she has shown in interview. personally I would cut her some slack because at least she and her husband stayed and loved Elvis when the holier than thou one ditched him and right away told how much happiers she was with her live w/o Elvis.
oh and who are they (Pris and Lisa) to ever get mad about people making a buck off of saying things about Elvis when they are filthy rich in doing so. and Pris began the minute she walked out the doors of Graceland.
I used to have a lot to say about Lisa & Priscilla . None of it good.
Until I went back & waded through the complete history of Elvis, Graceland etc. Lisa was not happy with her mother either .
Elvis was not perfect ,by any means. I wouldn't have put up with him either !
IMO, we all fall short of what we should & could be.
However, I tend to not judge most people ,except someone that calls themselves "my friend", who was right there following me every step of the way. I also do not tell things about "my friends" when they're not able to tell their own side. Especially the old rule.." do not speak ill of the dead."
That seems to be the point of much talk about Elvis. So, I leave that to the ones that enjoy that sort of thing...plus get paid for it ! :blink:
Infact,unfortunatelly,only for the money:'(:'(:'(:'(!Elvis is NOT deserve that!
