Lisa Marie Presley Says Her Marriage With Michael Jackson Was Normal

Lisa Marie Presley sat down with Oprah and discussed her relationship with Michael Jackson. She told Oprah she wanted to have a normal conversation about Michael for the first time and that usually when she talks about Michael she gets defensive. I kept waiting for the conversation, but it is pretty much things she has always said. She did say that their marriage was normal. "I honestly can tell you, it was every sense a normal marriage."

So, I guess that means they had sex? I am wondering how normal it was though because she says she did not know he did drugs. I realize that people can hide things from their spouses including drugs, but they were together for almost three years. You would think you would have a good idea by that point if you really were together all the time.

Lisa said when Michael was admitted to the hospital in 1995 for a viral infection, she suspected drugs but no one would tell her anything. Well, it seems to me that if she is the wife, all she has to do is talk to the doctors and they would at least give her a hint it was drugs, but you get the feeling from this quote, that she did not get to see Michael very much.

"It was very confusing what was wrong. Every day there was a different report. And I couldn't tell what was happening," she added. "I couldn't really get a straight answer about what was happening with him and I think we were all a little bit in the dark. At that point, I think I got from various indications that that was going on then."

I still think the marriage was a sham, but that is just my opinion.

OMG what did she fucking do to her face?? Talk about bad plastic surgery.

Well I think even if she HAD talked to the doctors, they wouldn't have told her the truth -- they were too busy hotdogging on the gravy train.

Given her background, I'm deeply unconvinced that LMP has had a lot of exposure to "normal marriages." Maybe it WAS a fairly normal marriage by showbiz standards.

I thought the church pimped Lisa out to try and get MJ's money? Remember that trainwreck of an interview they gave to Diane Sawyer?

Ya, perfectly normal marriage.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

Yeah, it's completely normal to bleach your skin so you look white and have small children that aren't related to you come over and lay in your bed. Totally normal. I believe her.

what the fck did Elvis do to these two women that they need to fuck up their faces so bad??

oh ya the whole madonna/whore thing.

MISCH said...

She's still protective of him, so all I can think is that he was very good to her.....and yes she's starting to look like Priscilla ...

Kate said...

Oh my God she looks horrendous! Lay off the plastic surgery.

She did say in the interview that in the marriage, she had the role of caretaker and that she loved it. She may have thought she could help him. I also found it interesting that she said that he wanted people around him to tell him what he wanted to hear and that if people were honest with him and said something he didn't like, they'd be out of his life. She has described Michael Jackson as "manipulative" before and I believe it. I always thought their marriage was a stunt, but I also think that once they were in it, they both thought it was going to last.

Lisa Marie Presley's pants are on fire.

I know Sue Ellen. Every time I hear Michael's name I can't get past the image of little boys in his bed. Sick. And she looks a lot like Wynonna in that still.

But the more I read about MJ after his death, the more "normal" he sounds. The body guards all came forward and said the child molesting was total BS. Lisa Marie is saying the marriage was real, as real as anything can get for anyone as famous and young as them. The whole bleaching skin stuff was due to that skin disease, which after many years, have now seen for myself in co-workers. The media is suspect here, IMHO. I can only point to Dave Chappelle, like what is here: http://vigilantcitizen.com/?p=3925
I think the truth is stranger than all the fiction that has surrounded MJ through all his years.

Pookie said...

sham marriage fo' sure.

i wonder if she regrets the bad ps? she was beautiful before. i don't get why she did it.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

I know about that skin condition and I don't think he had it. Let's pretend he did have it, that doesn't explain the playdoh nose. That's not right.

I also think that you don't settle out of court with someone when they accuse you of being a child molester. You fight it. At least, you do when you're innocent.

There are just too many things that aren't clean in the milk with that guy and I will forever think he was a pedo in sheep's clothing.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

@chihuahuense

You've got to be careful with other people's children, even if you are not someone with those tendancies. And I used to think LMP was so pretty with her amazing bone structure, but she looks like a Hallowe'en mask now.

Sorry it took so long to reply, I thought I already sent this. It appears I did not.

@Sue Ellen:

You could say the same about the parents. If you know that your child was molested by somebody you don't settle out of court. You fight until that beast gets their deserved punishment.

Also, it was proven that Michael suffered from vitiligo and many people who suffer from it bleach their skin to make the patches disappear and even out their skin tone.
What he did with his nose is a totally different subject. Ever heard of body dismorphic disorder?

I agree that MJ made countless bad choices in his life and that it also was his fault that people perceived him to be a child molester but he was proven not guilty and I also believe that he was innocent.

About Lisa Marie: She should stop using MJ to earn money. Let him rest in peace already.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

@Mina

I'm not talking about the parents of the kid(s), I'm talking about MJ.

Also, you didn;t mention the nose. That has nothing to do with vitiligo.

Cecilia00 said...

I think it was a real marriage by her standards and they were in love. LMP doesn't strike me as publicity hungry.

And she had no reason to enter a sham marriage. For money? For a record deal? She had money and the ability to get a deal.

In fact, LMP is probably the only person on earth who could match his publishing catalog.

She needed nothing from him to enter a sham marriage IMO.

Mina said...

@Sue Ellen:

Well, I am talking about the parents. I would never settle out of court if I had proof that my child was molested by a certain person.

And I mentioned his nose. Read my comment again.

LULU said...

I watched the interview and i understood why they were together i dont believe it was a sham and i honestly think they were in love and could relate to each other.. and with the molestation i dont believe that never have.. and to the person who is questioning his nose .ITS WAS HIS NOSE.. if he wanted to cut it , fry it , dip it in sauce that shit was his... we are all fucked up in some way or another if we had all that money we all would do all types of shit we never thought we would do... i agreed with lisa it was all his reality he knew no different ...

Belle said...

I've always assumed that Lisa Marie ended up married to MJ because scientology saw a chance to capture that star power.

Just a thought.

RocketQueen said...

He DID have vitiligo. It came up and was confirmed during the autopsy. Appreciate what you wrote _+_=_.
People just want to believe the worst.

delilah said...

@ belle...interesting theory-i am on board.

Anotheramy said...

MJ was as nutty as an almond joy. LMP married him because they were friends, he needed a beard, and Scientology wanted him.
LMP does not look for nor need publicity or money.

lanasyogamama said...

I'm pretty gullible, but I am having trouble believing this.

warmislandsun said...

I am trying so hard to be positive today BUT I just can't. Cannot. "Normal" in Lisa Marie Presley terms is still something from a galaxy far, far away. There is nothing normal about anything in her life. I am not sure how much her mother is to blame, or the celebrity factor - but Normal is not a word to associate with this one.

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

@Mina

Sorry, I skimmed. Didn' see the nose bit.

I wouldn't settle either, I'd want to screw him so hard his grandkids would feel it, but I dunno. I don;t know their motivations. All I know is that if it didn't happen and someone is trying to get money out of you anyway it's called extortion. The fact that he just paid up makes me nervous.

Jasmine said...

Mina and _+_=_ and as always Rocket Queen I totally agree with you guys and frankly I shudder a little bit when ppl start spewing the sheer torrent of hate and negativity whenever MJ's name comes up. It seems like the subject often veers from his child molestation charges into odd territories that infer race and other bigoted things.
I could get into the pyschological damages his monster of a father left (not including the unbelievable suffocating fame he indured all his life that I actually witnessed first hand, it was unreal)but i wont get into that.
I just appreciate the consideration as I think of him as a very wounded person, like I would any other, and it hurts me when I see ppl be so mean to someone so clearly fucked up who died so bloody tragically.

Jasmine said...

That being said, I am open to the molestation charges. I dont know what happened and since there seem to be equal 'facts' of proof on both sides I choose to stay out of it and insttead focus on his amazing music and legacy.

abigail7881 said...

I am a parent, and if my son was molested, on one hand I would not want to settle out of court, but on the other hand, I might not want my son to go through the courts and have to relive the experience. But I would not settle if it meant the bastard would not get jail time, who cares about money, when it comes to that?

Henriette said...

Sorry, every time this marriage comes up, I remember that awkward MTV kiss. LMP looked very disturbed and MJ looked like he was about to strangle her. It was just too weird. Maybe that is "normal" to her, but I seriously doubt they were very physically intimate with each other.

Remember, LMP is a hardcore Scientologist, so "normal" for her is believing we descended from aliens. Xeno be with you.
