Lisa Marie Presley on Elvis, Michael Jackson and Her Music

Lisa Marie Presley, the only child of Elvis Presley has kept her famous surname in the spotlight with her four weddings and three albums of her own, passed away on Thursday at the age of 54.

She was briefly married to Michael Jackson, and even shorter to Nicolas Cage. Here are some of the things that Presley, who owns her father’s Graceland estate in Memphis, had to say about navigating her right to fame and fame:

Presley, 9 years old when her father died of a heart attack at the age of 42, once recalled how he took her on a private jet to Idaho so she could see snow for the first time. They spent half an hour in the dough and left to go home.

“He was such an extraordinary presence – not even as an artist, but just as a person,” she once said. told The New York Times. “Yes, he sings well, and, yes, the songs are great, but that’s how he shows through the music. He is greater than life.

Presley said she was hesitant to lean on her father’s legacy when starting her own music career. But she was rejected by her record label, which created her personal track “Lights Out” – “Someone turned off the lights in Memphis. That’s where my family is buried and gone” — her debut single in 2003.

“I’m just trying to be unpretentious and connect immediately with my legacy,” she tell the Times. “My concern is that it would go against everything I’m trying to do now, which is to create my own fingerprints.”

Presley followed up her first album, “To Whom It May Concern,” with “Now What” (2005) and “Storm & Grace” (2012).

Of Presley’s four marriages, it was her relationship with Jackson that captivated the tabloids. After a secret ceremony in the Dominican Republic, they start their honeymoon at Trump Tower.

During their two-year marriage, Presley told journalist Diane Sawyer that rumors the relationship was a publicity stunt were not true. At the time, Jackson was facing allegations that he sexually abused a 13-year-old boy.

“How can you pretend 24 hours a day, sleep with someone, wake up with someone?” she speaks. “I wouldn’t marry someone for any other reason than I love them.”

Years after Presley and Jackson divorced in 1996, she explained to The Times difficulties in navigating star dynamics.

“I’m still pretty young and trying to decide what’s better for me: being with someone who has nothing, and then they’re trampled and egoless because they just become ‘Mr. Presley,’ or be with someone who’s in a similar situation to me,” she said.
