Shortly after it was revealed that Lisa Marie Presley was on life support, it has now been confirmed that she has passed away at the age of 54.
Presley was then placed in a coma and on life support, in addition to a temporary pacemaker.
Her mother, Priscilla Presley, released a statement The New York Post upon arrival at the hospital:
“My beloved daughter Lisa Marie was taken to the hospital. Now she gets the best care. Please keep her and our family in your prayers.
“We feel the prayers from around the world and ask for privacy at this time.”
Lisa Marie is, of course, the daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley.
Like her father, she was a singer/songwriter who released her debut album To Whom It May Concern in 2003. The gold-certified record reached #5 on the Billboard album chart.
After divorcing her first husband, she married Michael Jackson in 1994, Nicholas Cage in 2002 and guitarist Michael Lockwood in 2006.
She is survived by her three children, Riley Keough, Harper Lockwood and Finley Lockwood. Their son Benjamin Keough died in 2020.
REST IN PEACE.
Elvis’ daughter, Lisa Marie Presley, was hospitalized after suffering “complete cardiac arrest.”
Prayers for Lisa Marie.
Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of Elvis and Priscilla, was hospitalized after suffering cardiac arrest, according to reports today TMZ.
EMTs responded to a call about a possible cardiac arrest at the 54-year-old’s home in Calabasas, California.
When they arrived they had to perform CPR and give her an adrenaline shot to help her get a pulse back before she could be taken by ambulance to a local hospital.
It’s unclear what condition she is in at the time, but reports say she suffered a “full arrest” and is receiving full treatment in hospital.
She is still the owner of Elvis’ Memphis home, Graceland.
Presley was at the Golden Globes in Beverly Hills Tuesday night where she and her mother were there to witness Austin Butler win an award for his role as Elvis in last year’s film. elvis
Calling his performance mind-blowing, she praised the young star for portraying her father:
Elvis Presley’s first (and only) visit to the Grand Ole Opry
When you think of rock ‘n roll, what’s the first name that comes to mind?
Many would say definitely Elvis Presley.
The man dubbed the King of Rock and Roll changed the music world forever, although one of the reasons he changed the game (shaking his hips like a maniac) was because a lot of people didn’t want.
Especially in the country music world.
Because rock music is relatively new, Elvis fell into the country music genre when his very first single “That’s All Right” featured a cover of Bill Monroe’s bluegrass hit “Blue Moon Of Kentucky” on the B-side.
A 19-year-old Elvis had just burst onto the music scene, eventually earning him a seat on the Grand Ole Opry. However, his rocking cover of “Blue Moon of Kentucky” didn’t sit well with traditional country audiences.
After NPR, Elvis actually went to see Monroe to apologize for reworking his song and performing it on the Grand Ole Opry. Monroe was quite amiable, and biographer Richard Smith says Monroe would later appreciate those large royalty checks.
“Bill realized what Elvis Presley was going to do with his song and he went along with it.
And I think it was very, very admirable of him to take that up and tell Elvis that he’s 100 percent with him if it gave him a start in his career.”
Not wanting to be outdone by his own song, Monroe then went back into the studio to re-record an even faster triple fiddle version of the song.
For Elvis, however, his experience on the finest stage in all of country music was… an unforgettable one.
Then-Opry talent manager Jim Denny reportedly told Elvis:
“Drive a truck in Memphis again.”
Needless to say, the performance was a total flop. Elvis vowed never to return to the Grand Ole Opry, and he never did.
However, much like Hank Williams before him, after shitting his bed at the Opry, Elvis began appearing on the rival show. Louisiana Hayride.
And the rest is history.
Here’s a clip of Elvis’ first appearance on Louisiana Hayride, already in 1954:
