Lisa Marie Presley Scolds Media, Announces Pregnancy

Lisa Marie Presley Scolds Media, Announces Pregnancy

Lisa Marie Presley is pregnant with her third child but is not happy about the way media handled pictures of her gaining weight.

Under the subject, “Confirmation Under the Gun,” Lisa Marie writes on her Myspace:

“After being the target all week of slanderous and degrading stories, horribly manipulated pictures and articles in the media, I have had to show my cards and announce under the gun and under vicious personal attack that I am in fact pregnant.

Once they got a glimpse of my expanding physique a few days ago, they have been like a pack of coyotes circling their prey whilst eerily howling with delight. Starting with a London publication and then New York and Chicago all writing false defamatory degrading stories about all of the dark possible reasons I could be putting on weight. The US tabloids have been calling all day wanting confirmation on all kinds of insane theories.

They couldn’t wait to find out if my weight gain was because I was just overeating, in which case It would be open season and they can do the old following in her fathers sad and unfortunate demise story again or less interesting for them and probably much to their dismay, I could just be pregnant and therefore have a legitimate reason for weight gain at which point they should probably wipe the saliva off of their fangs and put them back in their mouths or they may expose the black little souls that they are.

Now that things are confirmed, hopefully they can stop all of the harassment and I can stop dodging the continuous bullets.

It is unfortunate that I couldn’t have announced something that is this much of a blessing and that has made us so incredibly happy under better circumstances.
How they have handled themselves with this has been nothing short of irresponsible and disgusting.

Pardon my seething contemptuous tone but ladies, You KNOW if you were pregnant and you felt you were expanding uncontrollably by the moment as a result and the worldwide media started badgering and harassing you for it, plastering you everywhere in an unflattering light, you would be mortified as well.

Sincerely,
~LMP

This will be the first child for Presley, 40, and her husband, guitarist and music producer Michael Lockwood, 46.

Presley has two children from her previous marriage with Danny Keough–daughter Riley, 18, and son Benjamin, 15.

    US media sucks period.

  • piper, with a low

    Good for her.

    The tabloids have been unbelievably obnoxious and out of line lately.

  • http://justjared.buzznet.com justjazz

    Congrats tto Lisa marie Presley.
    Yeah you tellh em girl!

  • denise

    She’s a public figure. She shouldn’t be surprised that people comment on her appearance. If she knows the stories are untrue she should have ignored them. Who cares what they have to say if she knows the truth?! I think what bothered her is being called fat.

  • rima

    Good for her!!! The press can be such scum some times.

  • http://slackerchic.blogspot.com/ slacker chic

    she should be glad that anybody gives a shit about her ass at all.
    http://slackerchic.blogspot.com/

  • Ha!

    Uh, I think what bothered her was exactly what she said. She was being hounded and harrassed by the press over something that was absolutely none of their business AND being ridiculed at the same time. Way to try to negate what she was really saying.

    The media sucks. Period. I am not in agreement that the media should be able to say whatever they want about people because they happen to be famous. That is simply excusing *sshole behavior.

  • Wedontreadtrash

    I want to day that for the most part, NO ONE BELIEVES THE TABS!! People are not stupid, and most of us look at the tabs and mags tag line and just laugh at such crap!! We don’t read the trash, would not EVER put out cash for something that would best be recycled for toliet tissue. Lisa Marie, do the same. Good Lord, girl!

  • http://slackerchic.blogspot.com/ slacker chic

    she should be glad anyone cares at all about her ass. what is she even doing besides living off her dad’s money?

  • Brandy

    She’s a nothing. She is a very depressed person who has been unhappy her entire life! She’s NOT pretty and I always thought she was a closet lesbian, she just has that BUTCH thing going on. She is a waste and never has and never will have her father’s charisma. Instead she got her sulky mom’s looks and attitude! Her mother looks like a freak now because she’s had so much plastic surgery, she honestly looks like the joker! Poor Elvis in that he was miserable his whole life because he got hooked up with Pricilla, who bore him a miserable child. Even when they were at amusement parks when she was a kid, Elvis would be smiling and laughing and Lisa Marie would be sitting there with a scowl on her face. We were the same age, and I asked my Mom, why is that kid unhappy when she’s at an amusement park? My mom said that she was a prime example of how money can’t buy happiness.

    Wedontreadtrash

    I have to disagree. I don’t read tabs, but I am always surprised at how many seemingly smart people do. And the real problem these days is that so called legit news agencies are repeating stories that come from tabloids and reporting the stories as FACTS.

  • loris

    ————–
    calling someone a nothing is kind of harsh..guess your mother didn’t teach you that.

  • lmp

    nobody ever said money should buy happiness. how do u know shes not happy? u’ve never seen her behind closed doors. lets see you get harassed and told lies about, think ud be a f-ckin ray of sunshine? highly doubt it. shes owes us NOTHING.. she doesnt hafta smile if she doesnt want to. lord knows i wouldnt want to. cant trust anyone either. someone obviously leaked news that she was pregnant. some friends.

  • Preesi

    Her hubby is FUGLY!

    And weird….

  • Life is good

    Yep the media loves the “she is too fat, she is too thin” stories, then i their two faced manner go “lets blame the magazines that show beautiful and thin models and OH MY GOD !!! That model there is so thin…. wow when did so and so put on so much weight….”

  • lola

    I totally understand and agree with her…poor celebrities!

    –read my blog at htto://fashionpoirot.blogspot.com

  • eugene

    she should have just kept quiet and kept the media speculate. pregnancy is a private issue, the media don’t have a right to invade her privacy. she’s not even that big of a celebrity or a public figure, and the media had no right to pry into her business. she’s not elvis, and he died 30 yrs. ago. get over it.

  • eddie jones

    amen brother, the media is out of control. All these celebrities that become celebrities would kill for the attention, once they get it, they don’t want it. I never recall LMP wanting it, but boy being the daughter of elvis is going to hand it to you.

  • http://kwanzoo.com oakling

    I totally hear her about the media, but… why doesn’t she just STOP READING THAT STUFF? They’re not going to stop writing it.

  • sheryl

    Well said, Lisa Marie! The media, both UK and US, are pretty slimy when it comes to celebs. But that’s their way of making their millions, while the masses fall for it because they buy the ****.

  • http://justjared rose

    Congrats to Lisa Marie Presley and her family!!!!!

  • Daniela

    YAY! i love her. i lover her family. theyre awesome. im happy for her!

  • coalharbourqt

    Brava Lisa Marie! Way to say it like it is! The way the media treat women in general, and particularly pregnant women, is absolutely disgusting and does nothing to further the fair and decent treatment of women. I don’t care if you are a celebrity or not, you still have the right to be treated with decency. I hope she sues their azzes.

    Whether she reads it or not, that trash is still out there and she’s going to hear about it from other people. The point is that it shouldn’t be out there in the first place. How can anyone with a conscience support that kind of trashy mentality?

    Denise and Brandy – women like you disgust me – instead of having the backs’ of other women, you take on and perpetuate the disgusting attitudes of our chauvinistic media against women. I hope it comes back to you in SPADES. You deserve it.

  • nora

    She’s a strong woman, and she owns every word written. She deserves every ounce of privacy and the freedom to keep it that way!

  • angel hair

    she writes well!

  • Nicole m

    Congrats to Lisa Marie! Why do people have to be so mean? She had to announce the happy news with bitterness. Not fair to her.

  • whatever

    Wow some of you people are idiots! NOBODY likes to be called fat and she even said some of those photos were doctored!

    She apparently is in her first trimester, she’s about to turn 40 (if she hasn’t already) and at 40, I’m sure she didn’t want to announce her pregnancy until after the first trimester was over! MOST people know the first trimester is when you can lose the baby (miscarriage) and stress is a big factor and now she has a-hole media claiming she’s fat and calling her about it! Leave her alone.

    Congratulations to her and her husband! Best wishes for a healthy pregnancy and baby!

  • kath

    its no wonder women have weight problems and eating disorders with crap like this going on

  • http://yahoo.com blondie

    The only time that I ever saw this pretty woman happy,
    was when she walked hand and hand with Michael Jackson.

    People with their chatter, spoiled that affair, good and proper.
    They broke up, and neither one has seemed to be happy, since.

    When she split with Nic Cage, I lost interest in her, totally.

    I see her as a great song writter.
    I like her singing. I hope that she starts with slow love songs.
    I wonder if she could sing that song that Elvis did on the flip side
    of a song. The song that I wish that she would do
    is called, “Don’t.” It is slow, sexy, and steamie.
    Don’t. Don’t. That’s what you say.
    Each time that I reach for you
    this way.

  • Hmmm

    Good for her, she has some valid points concerning the media.

  • Xnn

    I don’t like her. Fat, ugly rich with no talent at all. Her father was wonderful. She is not.

  • hottest couple ever

    She looks so much like her father.

  • Donkey Punch

    Both her and her mother are stupid scientology cult members. The reason she was married to Michael Jackson for a short period was because Scientology wanted to recruit him.

    Scientologists disconnect from people in their lives who aren’t scientologists so that means her man is also a scientology zombie.

  • remember da truth

    What people don’t seem to UNDERSTAND because they are too stupid to READ and are the same people who trash celebrities because they are miserable themselves — is that it wasn’t just something written!!!

    She was getting harassed!! Phone calls, paps, etc. For a “celeb” only because she was born into it, did not choose the constant exposure and has done her best to avoid it and mind her own business, doesn’t club-hop or go to parties, doesn’t have drug and DUI arrests, and is generally a good person — she doesn’t deserve the unwanted attention!!

    And for those who think just because you’re famous, you deserve to be harassed, I wish you could spend one day with it, and learn not to be a part of it just because you yourself are such an a** hole!!

  • ewwwww

    She is somebody who has never had adult responsibility and therefore remained very immature.

    She is more than happy to court the media and the public when she selling something or promoting her daughters modelling career.

    Which is it? You’re either a ‘celebrity’ or your not. Public interest isn’t something she can turn off like a tap. She’s in her 40′s now & old enough to know better’

  • boo bear

    she’s right.

  • http://millonaireromance.com Mike

    She is so beautiful. I love her sweet smile.I saw her profile in millonaire dating site” W e a l t hy L o v i n g .c o m”.I found she fall in bad ill and the baby is not…That is true?

  • http://arabaquarius.blogspot.com/ Arab.Aquarius

    I myself feel so down and angry when a couple of people comment on my body when i gain weight, so I would be very angry as well if i was her

  • Astrid

    She needs to eat more fruit and veggies during her pregnancy and then she won’t look like she’s eating for four. Her family has the “fat gene” so she needs to do what she needs to do so that she won’t get diabetes while pregnancy (which tends to happen when mothers let their weight get completely out of control).

  • dan

    Wake up! She’s a huge LESBIAN. She’s a pouty, angry-faced DYKE who is so unstable that she keeps getting married to unlucky men. 3 marriages? 4 marriages?
    .
    She should save herself the trouble and get a butch DYKE girlfriend and a STRAP ON. They can take turns being the MAN, which is what LESBIANS WANT. To be MEN. If they want babies, they can use a turkey baster.

    Honestly, does anyone give a flip about this no-talent? She seems to be a surly unhappy person. Guess the Scientology BS somehow didn’t make everything wonderful. YAAAWWWWWNN!
