Lisa Marie on Elvis
In a 2012 interview Lisa Marie Presley had spoken about her father’s influence on her. “It’s been all my life. It’s not something that I now listen to and it’s different. Although I might listen closer. I remain consistent on the fact that I’ve always been an admirer. He’s always influenced me,” she had told AP.
Baz Luhrmann’s musical Elvis
With the release of Baz Luhrmann’s musical Elvis last year, Lisa Marie and Priscilla Presley had been attending red carpet events and award shows alongside stars from the film. Just days before she died, Lisa Marie was at Graceland, a mansion in the US, where Elvis lived, and died, to celebrate her father’s birth anniversary. Elvis Presley died in August 1977, when he was 42, and Lisa Marie was nine.
Lisa Marie’s Life
Since joining the music industry as an adult, Lisa Marie had been in news due to her struggles with drugs and her four marriages. She was married to late singer Michael Jackson and actor Nicolas Cage, among others. She and Michael married in 1994, but the marriage ended two years later. Her other celebrity marriage was even shorter. Nicolas had filed for divorce after four months of marriage in 2002.
