Lisa Marie Talks About Life, Motherhood, and Her New Album in Elle Magazine
April 26, 2012
A rare interview with Lisa Marie Presley in the May edition of Elle
magazine tells all about her transformation from heir to the King of Rock 'n' Roll to finding her own place in the world and the upcoming release of her new album, "Storm and Grace."
magazine music correspondent, Liza Ghorbani
, sat down with Presley at her Medieval style estate outside of London, England. Lisa Marie talked about growing up the child of a music icon, her new album, and how motherhood has softened her once bad-girl image.
"I think people think I'm harder and more arrogant and cocky than I am because I know how to put on a front, but it's nothing like who I am inside. To be honest, I'm really overly, scarily sensitive," said Lisa Marie.
Lisa Marie described her new album as no longer "pissed off and bitter" but "exposing her vulnerability" and "laying her soul bare with a 'this is me, take it or leave it' attitude."
"Her songwriting is brave and real. She's saying something," said Oscar-winning producer T Bone Burnett, who helped produce her latest album. "I think it helps Lisa Marie to have that genetic makeup, because there wasn't a better singer in the last century than Elvis Presley. Her dad had extraordinary taste and I think she got that from him."
Both Lisa Marie and Burnett tell Elle
magazine the album is something Elvis would have been proud of and both are pleased to have achieved that goal.
