It’s nepotism from the grave! Elvis Presley’s grandson Benjamin Presley just scored himself a huge record deal. Hey, I thought the record industry was going broke? Guess they still have some money in their coffers to throw at the 17-year-old son of Elvis’ daughter Lisa Marie Presley and musician Danny Keough. So, how much did they sign throw at this whipper snapper? Five million dollars for five albums. He’s currently taking a break from working on his first album that will be “nothing like Elvis, nothing like him at all.”
Word is Benjamin is a surly teenager’. His spokesperson described him as “a typical 17-year-old. He doesn’t get up before midday and then grunts at you.”
His debut album is slated to come out sometime next year.
