She seems detached—and she probably is, not just 10 feet but a million miles away from the games going on around her, not to mention the tragedy.
She is also divergent. Born both a Southern girl and celebrity, her (perhaps healthy?) detachment from the world reflects, it would seem, having learned a lifetime’s worth of lessons from her father’s tragic life. She’s probably feeling burned too. She left the Church of Scientology or so we hear—and Lisa revealed the bitterness, even if nascent, in the song from Storm and Grace “So Long.”
Maybe it’s just being Lisa Marie, daughter of the rock and roll king, once wife to the king of pop, with the height of superstardom and the depth of crushing deaths. She probably died and came back numb? Or, as she says, she likes to keep things “compartmentalized.” Here’s the fame part, here’s the mom part. By fate and fortune to become the only child of a mega icon, being a rock star in her veins and in her own right, Lisa Marie has had an escapade of a life.
In the darkness stands Lisa Marie Presley, chewing on a pastille and staring at the spotlight as she waits in the wings for her cue. Alone but never alone - a personal assistant sprinkles talcum powder on her palms and the soles of her bare feet, to stop them sweating and sliding over the stage.

"Eating clean and organic is best," Presley, 46, tells PEOPLE from Down Under, where she and her husband, guitarist Michael Lockwood, are touring in support of her album Storm & Grace.
