I did it my way.
I feel the same but unfortunately Lisa and Priscilla (particularly Priscilla) have convinced themselves that they are stars in their own right. Nobody would have given a **** about them if they hadn`t been connected to Elvis.Originally Posted by MIElvis
Lisa certainly wouldn`t have got a recording contract if her name wasn`t Presley and she wouldn`t have appeared on all these top name shows like Oprah, MTV Awards etc.
She`ll turn up at an awards show to give an award to some group or whatever but when her father was inducted into the hall of fame all she sent was a note to be read out, she didn`t even bother to attend.
I wish she`d do more for her fathers legacy.
i agree, i think they just use his name so they get money, that's rediculus, i mean, thats no way to preserve his memory.
Well, Lisa Marie is Elvis' only child - that would have to mean that no matter how much she may have lost her way, Elvis would still love her unconditionally. I think he's looking down from heaven, the loving father.
Of course it is still true that if things remain this way, it just won't do, ya know what I'm saying? She really needs to get her *** out of that Scientology-trouble and protect her father's legacy instead.
Her mother got her into all that.

I have just watched a programme about Lisa Marie on the Biography channel and I have to say I couldn`t believe the amount of complaining she did. I want to like her but I can`t understand why shes always moaning, sure shes had hard times but shes also had a very good life as well but she complained no end about the tabloids etc etc but at the end of the day she brought that on herself by marrying Michael Jackson and then Nicholas Cage. She knew that would put her in the magazines etc.
In comparison to her father he never complained but got on with it.
Her father chose his career, chose to be famous. She was thrown into the spotlights the minute she was born! She never asked for that attention, but always got it. So I do understand a little about the complaining. But I also understand that people can't stand someone -who doesn't have to work a day in her life- complaining, period!Originally Posted by joanne

Let me make a few points as to why I feel this way-Originally Posted by ComeBackChick
First of all it has nothing to do with her having never worked a day in her life as most people in her position wouldn`t work. it is for the following reasons-
I have visited Memphis a few times and on one of those occasions The Jordanaires were asked where is Lisa-Marie why isn`t she here and they said they (meaning her and Priscilla) don`t give a **** about the fans they`re only interested in the money. Someone else told me that he gets very angry at Lisa because she won`t turn up to meet the fans.
I have heard that she does go to memphis but only in the quieter times of the year when there are less fans there.
The most we get is a walk on appearance at Elvis The Concert and that happens once every five years big deal.
In 2001 she stood in Elvis`s bedroom watching the fans during the vigil why couldn`t she come down and meet and talk to the fans it would have meant so much to them but no.
Then she said the Elvis fans were creepy well we`re not creepy lisa we`re people that love and respect your father and we`ve made you a lot of money over the years.
She`ll go to the opening of an envelope but will she hell as go to an Elvis event.
Shes appeared on the MTV awards a number of times giving an award to U2 or Pink but when Elvis was inducted into The Hall Of Fame she sent a note to be read out.
When Elvis was inducted into the UK Hall Of Fame not long ago she sent Priscilla to accept the award.
It was quite a big event here in England and people couldn`t understand why his daughter didn`t turn up but instead his ex-wife accepted it and made a speech when in my opinion she didn`t have the right to be there.
She married Michael Jackson which propelled her into the limelight and then went on to marry Nicholas Cage and unbelievably that marriage didn`t last as long as Jackson.
Then she embarked on a singing career releasing Lights Out as the first single describing the burial site of her father as The **** Back Lawn.
She set out promoting her album but got offensive when she was questioned about Michael Jackson.
What did she expect?
She is a nightmare to interview acting like she doesn`t want to be there, anybody would think she was being made to do them.
I can`t help but think of her father and how polite he was in interviews and even though he went through a lot at times he was never rude to the media.
Because of her name shes appeared on every talk show going Jay Leno, Oprah, Howard Stern, David Letterman etc but complained that she hadn`t had the preparation of singing live in front of a small audience before she appeared on national TV. Well she certainly had the time after all she was now in her mid thirties.
I like Lights Out and Dirty Laundry but unfortunately I can`t make out half of what she is singing on the other records.
She also can`t sing live and as any entertainer knows that is the most important facet of the music business.
She did interviews being a little outspoken for her own good, yes we all like a bit of honesty but did we really need to know that she liked sex like they do it in the porn movies.
Did she have to talk about how she gave head at aged 13, had sex at 15, had lesbian sex at 16 and was also drugging it.
Somethings are best kept to yourself especially when your father is Elvis Presley and you want to respect the name.
Her attitude isn`t the best and her language is disgusting and yes I know that Elvis did swear but he never did it in interviews like she does.
She has done a couple of good things for instance opening Presley Place was a wonderful thing and she has avoided talking about her father when I know she could have made a fortune writing a book etc but unlike her mother she doesn`t want to milk it and I admire that but unfortunately the bad outweigh the good.

Man,I just work here!(Elvis 68')
Priscilla Beaulieu is absolutely pathetic.Originally Posted by ayda
I have just watched Elvis The Great Performances on the biography channel and there she is walking around Graceland as if it is still her home.
She was asked to do the programme she says, what bollocks.
As she was walking through the living room I couldn`t believe that she had added another photograph of her and Elvis on their wedding day onto a sideboard. You will also notice on Elvis By The Presleys that to the right of her at the beginning there are various photographs of her and Elvis framed.
As if Elvis kept these on display after she left.
She is so obsessed with being seen as the widow and she can`t bear another woman to be mentioned in connection to Elvis if it isn`t her.
It was very conveniant in The Great Performances how when she said their marriage had ended that it cut to Elvis singing Always On My Mind featuring guess what clips of her and Elvis.
She likes to think that song is for her when Elvis never expressed that sentiment.
I have to say Ayda that when she went to the closet and looked at the dog leads I could have swung for her.
Then when she mentioned how Elvis asked her for advice on decorating the plane because she was good with colours etc I though yeah thats right pretend that you were still with him.
She has rewritten Elvis history and she has the power to do it. She can make programmes about him and edit them anyway she likes as we have seen with Elvis By The Presleys. You can always tell when she has had a hand in them when they are critical of Elvis and when they don`t contain any of his other girlfriends.
She didn`t want Elvis but she didn`t want any other woman to have him either.
I have been critical of Lisa but only because she should of been the one hosting The Great Performances not her mother. She should be walking through Graceland like its her home because after all it is and thats what Elvis wanted and not his ex-wife.
