There's an element of bravery when it comes to following in my father's footsteps.
People are either gunning or pulling for you. It's extreme, one way or the other.
You need tough skin, but I like performing. When you're onstage, you form a relationship
with the audience. I love meeting fans after a show and hearing how a particular song has
influenced their lives.
I never had a father figure. [Presley's mother, Priscilla, separated from her father, Elvis,
when she was four.] I was never partial to anyone my mum dated. The closest I've had
to a father figure is T-Bone Burnett, who produced my album. I could tell he cared and
wanted to ensure the record fell into the right hands. You need someone to champion
I visit Graceland a couple of times a year. It's my home away from home, but when it
comes to business regarding my dad's estate, I detach myself from it. I have to take off
my hat as daughter to make executive decisions. It's easier now I've been doing it for so
Living in the UK has given me a new perspective on life. I'd had enough of the people
in LA and seeing too much of one thing, so my husband [musician and producer Michael
Lockwood, whom Presley married in 2006] and I decided to start from scratch somewhere
new. We fell in love with England and we now live about an hour outside London. It
offers a lifestyle LA couldn't provide. We grow our own potatoes! I don't mind it when the
sky is dark and cloudy; I'm as happy as can be when I'm rugged up in front of the fireplace.
At 44, you start to see things from a different perspective. Before 40, I tended to look at
life as black and white. Now there's a lot of grey.
My three-year-old twins, Finley and Harper, have softened me. I feel blessed every time I see them. I
can't believe we had two healthy, amazing children in one shot. Michael and I look at each other every day
and say, "I can't believe they're ours!"
The girls know exactly what they want. One is outgoing and the other is reserved,
but they look out for each other. I cherish this time with them; I know how quickly
children grow up.
My children have always come first. I planned the tour around the twins' schooling.
My eldest children are very grounded [Presley had Riley, 23, and Ben, 19, when she
was married to Danny Keough]. They never had a shift in their daily schedule because of
what I was doing.
I'm so proud of my daughter, Riley. She's in Namibia filming Mad Max and we Skype all
the time. She's there for six months. I send her care packs because this is the longest
I've been away from her.
Mum is so busy, I can't keep up with her. At the moment, she's designing furniture.
She has a lot of energy. She's in much better shape than I am.
Lisa Marie Presley doesn't make a habit
of attending music awards show ceremonies.
However, it was pleasant surprise to see
her on hand at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards.
Presley was on hand to present the Spotlight
Award to Katy Perry.
