Lisa Marie Quotes / Quotations

After my father died, I stayed relatively sane for two years, although I did lose my noodle at summer camp right after my dad's death. But when I hit 12, 13, that was it. I hated my mom's boyfriend, and there was a lot of control on me. I didn't like that, so I rebelled.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


Anything my father did for me or gave me was done out of love. I'm sure I had moments when I was a snot. But my mom was there to smack me back to the other side.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


Being Elvis Presley's daughter is a whole lot of pressure. It's been a constant burden in my life.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


Facing the press is endlessly daunting for me. But I am learning to use it to my advantage. If the tabloids come up with the latest ridiculous lie about me - and they always do - then now I can rectify it the following week in a proper interview with a serious newspaper. That's a novelty.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


For some reason, when I turned 30 I became a teenager again and it wasn't really by my own will, it just happened. I married and had my first baby at 21, so I had it together early on. But I started acting about 15 again when I turned 30. So I guess that makes me 19 now.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


How many people have a family grave in the backyard? I'm sure I'll end up there, or I'll shrink my head and put it in a glass box in the living room. I'll get more tourists to Graceland that way.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I also did a record because, as I've said, music has had such a huge impact on me all my life, and my hope was to affect others musically the way I was affected.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I didn't make this record to set the record straight or anything. I just wanted to put something out there, and I'm glad I have. I'd be having much more fun with all this if I was in the least bit vain or desperate for attention, but I'm not, so, you know ..
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I do feel relieved. I do feel like I did what I needed to do for myself, and for whoever's out there who wants to be moved by me. I aimed it at people who are willing to be moved by music as I have in my life. It's more about the music for me. It is a relief.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I do like to write nasty songs. It's a useful weapon to have, and it's cathartic as well, because I create art out of anger, something positive out of something negative.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I don't deal well with admiration if it's for something I haven't done. Other than exist.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I don't do yoga. I bite the hella outta my nails. I smoke, I eat all the wrong food, I don't exercise.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I don't respond to music that's not honest, and music's had a huge influence on my whole life. It's gotten me through everything. I don't respond to music that's full of crap . Since it's also a therapeutic and cathartic thing for me to write, I'm not going to go halfway or be some puffball.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I dropped out of school in the 11th grade because there was no purpose in it for me. I'm not proud of this, and I'm not trying to promote it.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I got an early education on how bad men and women can act. Most of those people were sucking the life out of him.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I guess I don't get inspired to write when I'm happy. And I don't respond to music that I don't feel was honestly pulled from a genuine place. I'm very much influenced by Roger Waters and Pink Floyd.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I had anything but a happy childhood. Two words: lonely and deep. I was very lonely and way too deep for someone so young.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I had no interest in hanging out with other celebrity kids, and I was certainly no cheerleader, so I started mixing with outsiders. I was very into all kinds of experimentation.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I have a lot of memories, but I don't go into capitalizing on that. Something's got to be my own. I'm not doing the record to sit here and broadcast my memories of my father.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I have a tendency to kick it up. I like to rattle the cage.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I knew that because of who I am, and the situation I'm in, that I'd attract more critics than your average person, and that was a little intimidating, but I wanted to get out there and pay my dues.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I like Jailhouse Rock and Love Me Tender. The black-and-white films. With music, I tend more toward the '70s stuff because I was at the shows for those, so they bring back memories.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I liked an Aretha Franklin song and I went into the studio to do a cover to see if I could sing. I basically walked in there and said, 'Let's just try this, and if I can't, let's just walk out of here and act like nothing happened.' You know, I'm pretty brutally honest with myself.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I live with selected people I've sort of made into my family and that's my kind of fortress. I know that I'm safe, despite what else is going on in the outside world.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I never not wanted to be a singer. Since I was 3, I knew this was what I wanted to do. Well, I can't say I wanted to do it, but I fantasized and thought about it all the time. I never thought it would actually happen.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I really went back through a lot of the dark corridors of my life in this. I wanted people to know who I am based on my music, not on what they read in the tabloids.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I remember him watching me through the crack of a door singing with a hairbrush. I was in front of his mirror. I think he wanted me to sing. He would get me on the table and make me sing sometimes or play the piano. He was very encouraging on that front.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I think I've failed every test I've ever taken. If there was a failure I would have been it.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I use songs as weapons. I've written some really good, nasty songs about people I've been involved with and then I make sure they hear it somehow.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I want a fingerprint of my own and I want credibility, and that's all I want. I just want some substance to my existence.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I wanted to come through with my own voice and, hopefully, have it affect people. I want people to know that I'm not an Elvis impersonator.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I wanted to put something real out there to end 35 years of speculation. My hope is that I can break through my legacy and earn my own credentials as an artist. Not for some stupid superficial reason, like I want to be a pop icon, but because it would make me feel more like I could hold my head up.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I was quite the spoiled brat. I have quite a temper, obviously inherited from my father, and I became very good at ordering everyone around. I was the princess; the staff were absolutely terrified of me.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I was very protective of my father and I didn't like these people who hung around outside all day. They creeped me out.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I won't say who my songs are about. But the record was written over a four-year period. I can sit and write about something that happened 10 years ago or two hours ago.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I write about subjects that are close to my heart, but not every one of them is necessarily about the men in my life. Maybe two or three at most ... That's why I called it To Whom It May Concern. Go speculate.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I'll be comfortable on stage if people come because they like the album and they really want to see me. Not because they look at it as a curiosity, or they're really skeptical.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I'll say it loud and say it proud. I'm completely insane.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I'm a hypochondriac. Yesterday it was brain damage from the vodka the night before. Today, heart attack - my arm and chest started hurting at the same time.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I'm doing it because music's been such a profound influence on me and my whole life and gotten me through everything. I thought I could use this album as a vehicle, an outlet of whatever I've been through, and I wanted to see if I could affect others. It's as simple as that.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I'm female, thank God, because if I was male this really would be difficult. And, of course, I don't attempt to sound like my father - I do my own thing.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I'm just not interested in selling out to get on the charts and make people happy.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I'm more of a tomboy than anything and then you see your name on these Top 50 Most Beautiful People lists and you're like, "What?"
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I'm more prone to his '70s material, which is what I was around for and watched a lot. I listen to a lot of that stuff. It probably influenced me quite a bit. I'm more drawn to the darker, sadder songs.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I'm not a big mover. Apparently I do have some mannerisms on stage.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I'm not doing this to be a pop star. I've had plenty of money and attention. I'm doing it for credibility.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I'm not eager to jump into marriage again. I'm in the corner right now, wearing my dunce cap. That area is obviously a nightmare.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I'm sure there's no way to escape the fact that I was heavily influenced by him. I was only around his music and him most of the early part of my life. It's impossible not to have been inspired or influenced.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I'm the bravest that I've ever been right now. Don't ask me where I got these balls: I have no idea.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I'm trying to have my own thing, and I don't know if it's even possible. I didn't realize so many people actually think I'm trying to be like my dad. I read comments like 'She's no Elvis.' I'm not trying to be. I never set out to be.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I've been chased through airports with a screaming baby because the photographers are ruthless, and they want the picture.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I've been through enough in my time where I've needed to outlet it. If I can do that in a way where I'm going to touch others and affect others then I'd rather do it like that.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I've been writing this record for the past five years, and I've written about things that happened during that period.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


I've produced something that was mine, that I'm proud of, so it helps me hold my head up a bit higher. It's not based on some other B.S. that I'm getting attention. I get attention for the right reasons, which makes me happy with the record.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


If I put out something that is actually credible, and recognised as such, then I feel a little more justified as a human, you know.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


If I'm alone too long I think too much, and I'm not interested in doing that. That won't lead anywhere good, I'm sure. If I'm busy I tend to stay out of trouble. An idle mind is the devil's playground.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


If people are expecting me to be like my dad they're going to be disappointed. I'm nothing like him. I'm in a completely different category.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


It's rewarding in that I can hold my head up a little higher because people are not just looking at me because of my marriages or the tabloids or because of my lineage. A lot of times people like the music. It's much more gratifying than being stared at for being an animal in a cage.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


Mostly singing was cathartic, writing was cathartic, therapeutic. I don't think I had a goal, particularly, to sing or put it out there for anybody.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


Music has always gotten me through life, particularly honest, real music.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


Music has had a profound effect on me all my life. I wanted to be able to give that to others, believe it or not.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


Music's always been such a big part of my life - it's always got me through everything and it always moves me - so I wanted to move others in some way, or touch them, and use my art with my own fingerprint in it.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


My relationship with my mother is fine. It took us a while to get there, but it's fine. Because we're completely the opposites of each other, so we didn't find our place with one another until about a year and a half ago. It's been a bit, like, a hit-and-miss situation.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


On my US tour maybe three out of 30 shows there was an Elvis impersonator in the crowd but that's it. I usually get younger fans, and those that come that are of an older generation end up walking out because it's too loud.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


Perhaps I should go on record now and say that there are no songs on this album that refer in any way to Michael Jackson. Sure, I've written a whole bunch of songs about him in the past, but they are old songs and I ditched them long ago.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


Power or celebrity, you walk a really fine line. It's a struggle to keep your sanity, to keep on a straight line.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


Stardom is difficult. It is a lonely, alienated position. You sometimes put yourself on a different plane than everyone else. That causes problems.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


The lyrics are more conceptual than anything. They're not particularly about a person. They're just metaphorical, conceptual, of a time and place, ideal, life, that I once knew.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


The reason I did this, and the reason the record is called To Whom It May Concern, is that there are going to be people who will immediately judge me, or label me, or try to shut me down right out of the gate. And it's them versus someone who's moved by the music.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


When they divorced, I would go out on the road more and miss more school, which I liked. People say I didn't get to see him very much, but I was with him quite a bit. All of a sudden, a car would show up at school, and he was calling for me to go out on the road.
Quotation of Lisa Marie


With a lot of hair and make-up then I'm possibly, remotely attractive. But it's rare, I don't think I'm ugly but I'm nothing particularly special. I'm not a yoga and health girl. I don't exercise that much and I eat crap and smoke and bite my nails.
