A Brief Overlook on Lisa Marie Presley’s life and career
The only daughter of Elvis Presley and actress Priscilla Presley, Lisa Marie Presley, sometimes known as the “Princess of Rock and Roll”, was born in Memphis, Tennessee on February 1, 1968. The sole heir to Elvis Presley’s estate, Lisa Marie also pursued a career in music, releasing her debut album “To Whom It May Concern” in 2003, reaching No. 5 on the Billboard 200. She collaborated with the Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan for a co-written song called “Savior”, released as a B-side. But it’s not Lisa Marie’s musical talent that has made headlines for most of her life, it was her controversial relationships and marriages to Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage. She first met Jackson back in the 1970’s when the singer was still part of The Jackson Five, they married in 1994, however, the marriage was seen by many as fake, and as a marketing strategy from both. They end up divorcing in 1996 citing irreconcilable differences. Later, she married the actor Nicolas Cage, who has stated several times to be Elvis Presley’s No.1 fan. Today she finally enjoys a stable marriage with music producer Michael Lockwood, father of her twin girls. Also controversial was Lisa Marie’s association to the Church of Scientology, that she was first introduced to in 1977 by her mother, Priscilla. She officially defected from the church in 2016, after several years experiencing growing dissent with Scientology. In 1997, Lisa Marie made a video of her father Elvis Presley’s song “Don’t Cry Daddy” as a duet with The King himself, using technology that allowed a new new instrumentation and Lisa Marie’s vocals.
