Lisa Marie Presley: "I Don't Have It In Me" To Be an American Idol Judge
Lisa Marie Presley has always had stardom in her blood -- and now she's passed it on to her kids! Most notably, her daughter Riley Keough, 23, is making like her grandaddy Elvis and getting into movies (she's also reportedly engaged to actor Alex Pettyfer, 22).
"I'm so proud!" says her mama, Lisa Marie, who just released her rootsy third CD, Storm & Grace (produced by T-Bone Burnett). I chatted with Presley recently about the effort, her growing three-year-old twins Finley and Harper and the one gig she just couldn't play.
More than 500 fans lined up against the famous brown brick façade of Sun Studio, 706 Union Ave. Monday, May 14, to meet singer-songwriter Lisa Marie Presley, who made her historic first public appearance at the legendary recording studio that launched the career of her father, music icon Elvis Presley.
Lisa Marie Presley is a curiosity. Famous from birth, she is rock's only real princess. Her face is a stunning combination of her parents' best features. Her marriages have been, well, unusual. Who could forget her awkward television kiss with then-husband Michael Jackson? Or the few months of wedded bliss to actor and Elvis fanatic Nicolas Cage? She has led a colorful life — one that overshadowed her music career when she started making records in 2003. But on her new album, Storm & Grace, she has found her voice.
