Surely you’ve heard of Elvis Presley who was an American singer and actor so far. Although most people know Elvis, there are many people who love the artist’s ex-wife, Priscilla Presley.
Priscilla Presley’s life is quite interesting, maybe even mysterious. Her father, James Wagner, a Navy pilot, died in a plane crash just months before she was born. This was shocking for Priscilla’s mother, Ann. She remarried in 1948 to Paul Beaulieu, a Canadian Air Force officer. It seems that Priscilla’s family did not live in one place and she moved several times before deciding to stay in Germany. Priscilla was a teenager at the time.
However, Priscilla attended Del Valley Junior High School in Austin, Texas. She finished high school in 1963 and married Elvis Presley in 1967, after meeting him in Wiesbaden, Germany, in 1959. She was only 14 years old when she met her future husband.
The two did not remain married until the artist’s death, their marriage lasted 6 years and they had a daughter together, Lisa Marie. Lisa is currently 54 years old.
After Elvis Presley’s death in August 1977, Priscilla decided to study acting, so she enrolled at the Malaga School of Dramatic Art. She also participated in several advertising campaigns, including a campaign for the well-known brand of hair products, Wella.
After her ex-husband’s death, Priscilla inherited a considerable fortune, including the Graceland mansion in Memphis. She decided not to live in that house and turned it into a museum. Her decision was very good because the museum is visited by people from all over the world.
In 1985, Priscilla released “Elvis and Me,” a biographical essay on Elvis Presley. However, Priscilla is a business woman, so she tried to have as many businesses as possible, which is why she created her own perfume line since the 1990s. She has also a business related to clothes and cosmetics.
She caught the eye with her latest spotlight. Elvis Presley’s ex-wife is currently 77 years old, and her last appearance was at a well-known and internationally watched event – Met Gala 2022. The Met Gala took place on May 2 in New York and was attended by the most famous celebrities of the moment. Priscilla Presley decided to dress only in black and was accompanied to the event by Austin Butler, a well-known young American actor.
Because Priscilla has not had so many public appearances in recent years, the photographers turned their attention to her when she appeared on the red carpet.
As I said earlier, Priscilla decided to wear black for the Met Gala. She is a woman who loves fashion, which is why she decided that her dress should be designed by Prada. You can’t go wrong with Prada, can you?
She was wearing a black headband, a dark handbag and a large yellow stone ring accessory on her hand.
Many people thought that Priscilla’s decision to wear only black was influenced by the fact that Benjamin Storm Keough died in 2020 at the age of only 27. Benjamin was the grandson of Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley. Priscilla’s mother, Anna Lillian Iversen, also died in August 2021 at the age of 95. These losses in Priscilla’s life could certainly have influenced her decision to wear black at the Met Gala.
Priscilla had a very close relationship with her mother because when she died, Priscilla posted several messages showing how much she would miss her mother. Among the statements made by Priscilla about her mother are: “She was the light of our lives”, “She never wanted any attention on herself. Her children were her everything”, “May you Rest In Peace mom. You will always be with us “.
In June 2022, the movie Elvis will appear, in which the actor Austin Butler will play the role of the famous Elvis. That’s probably why Priscilla was accompanied by Austin to the 2022 Met Gala. Priscilla Presley also attended the film’s premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, where she was quite excited about everything that was going on. Priscilla said she was very excited about this movie and had tears in her eyes as she remembered her ex-husband through this movie. She also thinks the role suits Austin very well. Priscilla also said that she saw the movie trailer a lot of times with her daughter, Lisa Marie Presley. They were both very excited and can’t wait to see how the movie was viewed by people.
Priscilla says that she had the opportunity to relive many memories with the help of this film, memories that she may not have thought about for some time. She is happy that her grandchildren and Elvis’ grandchildren will have the opportunity to see a small part of their grandfather’s life.
The movie can be for sure a real hit, and many of us will find out more about Elvis. If you didn’t know that the movie Elvis is coming out, then you can go see the trailer which is a very good one.
