Miscellaneous news stories about Lisa Marie Presley
According to the Daily Mirror, the 35-year-old recalled,
"seeing things going on that I couldn't do anything about."
But she refused to elaborate on what she had seen: "Don't ask
me what sort of things because I'm not going to answer...it's
just stuff." One day later Lisa Marie clarified the remarks
she made on TV, saying she never saw ex-husband Michael Jackson
engage in inappropriate behaviour with children. The daughter
of legend Elvis Presley married Jackson in 1994 and the couple
split just 20 months later. Jackson is charged with seven acts
of lewd and lascivious behaviour with a minor and administering
an intoxicating agent. In January he pleaded not guilty to all
charges. Santa Barbara police will question Lisa when she returns
from her trip.

Rough road to the top for The King's Daughter:
As the only child of rock & roll's first and most celebrated
rock star, Lisa Marie Presley would have to work extremely
hard to establish her own individuality, far far away from
her famous Father. It would be a rough road, but Lisa Marie
had the spark and rawness to do it and to do it on her own
Born to Elvis and Priscilla Presley on February 1, 1968,
Elvis's only daughter spent the first four years of her life
at Graceland where she was the apple of her father's eye.
When her parents split in 1972, Lisa Marie left Nashville
with her mother for the suburbs of Los Angeles, but would
regularly visit Elvis in Memphis. Music was undoubtedly a
big part of her life; Elton John, David Cassidy and some of
Elvis' softer songs were her favorites. Having music around
allowed Lisa Marie an escape. The tension between two households
and the geographic distance apart was emotionally taxing for
a young girl; such stress came to head August 16, 1977 when
her father died after an apparent drug overdose. Lisa Marie
The decade that followed showed an aggressive young lady
that lacked direction and discipline. Lisa Marie meddled in
drugs during her teenage years while listening to Devo and
The Sex Pistols. At age 18, she left drugs behind and began
following Scientology. During this time, Lisa Marie began
writing songs, but the process proved nerve-racking. Lisa
Marie was aware of the pressures of being Elvis Presley's
daughter, so she didn't exactly pursue songwriting that seriously.
She had something else in mind; she married her longtime
boyfriend, Danny Keough, in 1988. The six-year marriage produced
two children, Danielle and Ben. Motherhood grounded her, but
not entirely--Lisa Marie was a rebel at heart and the tabloids
||In 1994, rumors circulated that she and Michael Jackson
had tied the knot in the Dominican Republic. The union
was initially denied in May, but the world couldn't believe
their eyes when Lisa Marie and the King of Pop appeared
on the annual MTV Music Awards four months later. The
two locked lips to the crowd's surprise and those watching
at home were equally a gasp. Was it a gimmick or real
Between television appearances and media scrutiny, Lisa
Marie had had enough of Michael Jackson and divorced him 1997.
She was mentally and physically exhausted. Music soothed her
once more and a chance meeting with producer Glen Ballard
motivated Lisa Marie to give the music thing another try.
Ballard was impressed with her dark, luckless melodies and
inked her a deal with Capitol.
Her debut album was slated for a 2000 release, but Ballard
didn't stick around to the final product. The next year, Lisa
Marie starting dating actor Nicolas Cage; the couple married
in summer 2002 despite it being a tumultuous relationship
from the start. Sadly, Cage and Lisa Marie's wedded bliss
fell short three months later when the pair split for good.
Lisa Marie might have been down, but she wasn't out.
Lisa Marie Presley bravely made her musical debut in
spring 2003 with the release of To Whom It May Concern. Deeply
personal, edgy and furious, To Whom It May Concern showed
a side of Lisa Marie that was both smart and brash. She wasn't
interested in living up to her Father's legacy in the eyes
of others because she was comfortable with her own.
To Whom It May Concern sold 140,000 copies during its
first week of release in April. It was also one of the year's
highest debuts with its #5 position on Billboard.
