Lisa Marie Presley just sat down with Oprah Winfrey in an interview to talk about her ex-husband Michael Jackson’s death. She spoke of being shocked when she heard the news of his passing, and also said that she wished she would’ve reached out to him. She insists that they had a normal marriage when they were together and that they were very happy.
Lisa Marie also compared Michael Jackson to her father, Elvis Presley. She said, “The one thing that correlates with Michael and my father on this subject, they had the luxury of creating whatever reality around them they wanted to create.”
I guess it is kind of ironic that the daughter of the King of Rock and Roll went on to marry the King of Pop. Both will remain iconic symbols in music history for years to come, though I must say, I don’t know how you can put anyone in the same category as Elvis. Bottom line, there was, and will always be, only one Elvis Presley.
One can argue that there were similarities in the way that both Elvis and Michael passed. On the subject, Lisa said, “It really blows me away, to be honest with you. I still try to figure out why? What is it that I had to go through this twice? I went through it once, that was painful and I went through it again.”
Lisa was just a small child when her father passed away on August 16th, 1977, but there is no doubt that when Michael Jackson died, it brought back painful memories of that day. I’m sure that the loss of both of these important men in her life will always haunt her.
