Oh hey Rosanne if I had met Elvis at 14 I would have been kicking and screaming to be allowed to see him too but no way would have my parents allowed it. I doubt very much if going to live with him would have even entered my head.
My parents would have said if he was interested enough he would wait until I was older then see if a relationship was what we both wanted.
Jen, we only have Priscilla's word for it that it was Elvis who went through all the trouble to get her to Graceland. I would be very interested to know how many letters and phone calls came from Germany versus Tennessee.

"...you're still lovely,
you were lovely then,
all that you had to endure,
i guess nobody noticed it..."
It's because you or your friends didn't have parents like Priscilla's (goldiggers)
These Priscilla threads take on a life of there own in a similar way to the World tour threads. I checked the thread this morning and it had 21 replies now it has 55 replies. I had heard from the Memphis mafia guys that aren't aligned with Priscilla that Elvis was very much in love with Priscilla at first and viewed her as a conquest and wanted her to come to the U.S. and live with him so he could teach her how to act and dress and behave and they could spend time together. As the years went by Elvis still loved Priscilla and genuinely cared for her but the passion was gone from Elvis point of view he had wanted to move on to other women and had really fallen hard for Ann Margret. He broke it off with Ann because of his commitments to Priscilla from what I have heard neither Elvis or Ann wanted it broken off.
Priscilla's father Joseph had wanted Elvis to marry Priscilla when she turned 21 Elvis resisted for a while and then Mr. Beaulieu threatened Elvis he would go to the media and tell them all about how young priscilla was when they started living together. Elvis fearing a scandal agreed to marry Priscilla he talked to the Colonel about it and the Colonel told him to either marry her or dump her. Elvis married her.
I don't know for sure if any of this is true because I wasn't there but have heard it from Bill Smith, Lamar, Red, Marty, Sonny
I'd never heard or read that Pris and Anne didn't get along Jen. Maybe it was part that Anne never told her until about the time she met Elvis that Paul wasn't her real father and maybe the rest was that she realized they couldn't have had much respect or concern for her in allowing her into that relationship with Elvis for their own greed.
Who knows what Priscilla really feels at this time. She very well could be full of resentment towards her parents at the same time consoling herself with all that money. She never looks like a happy person and never did.
I wasn't supposed to date until I was sixteen either but I sneaked. A couple of times in the front seat of a car and a fight with a not so nice kid of 16 when I was 14 decided me that I wasn't ready. I didn't date again until I was sixteen and that was my first love and lasted 3 years.
