Elvis’ Daughter Lisa Marie Marie Presley Dies At The Age Of 54

Published

on

Lisa Marie Presley has died.

The singer/songwriter – who was the daughter of late music legend Elvis Presley and actress Priscilla Presley – was rushed to hospital on Thursday (12.01.23) after suffering a cardiac arrest but passed away later at the age of 54, leaving her family “shocked and devastated”.

Priscilla told People magazine in a statement: “It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us. She was the most passionate strong and loving woman I have ever known. We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers. At this time there will be no further comment.”

Lisa Marie is survived by her actress daughter Riley Keough, 33, who she had with first husband Danny Keough, and 14-year-old twins Finley and Harper, from her fourth marriage to Michael Lockwood, who she was still involved in a bitter custody battle with, more than six years after they split.

Her fourth child, Benjamin Keough, took his own life in 2020 at the age of 27.

She married the late Michael Jackson in June 1994, less than a month after her marriage to Danny ended, but they split two years later.

In 2000, she got engaged to musician John Oszajca, but the relationship ended when she met Nicolas Cage and she and the ‘Con Air’ star wed two years later, though their union only lasted four months.

As a musician, Lisa Marie released three albums, 2003’s ‘To Whom It May Concern’, ‘Now What’ in 2005, and ‘Storm + Grace’ in 2012.

She also helped homeless families and families in need by overseeing the Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation and worked with Oprah Winfrey’s Angel Network to help those affected by Hurricane Katrina, and the Dream Factory, which benefits children with life-threatening illnesses and conditions.

‘Unholy’ Hitmaker Sam Smith Loves To Perform For A Drunk Audience

Published

on

Sam Smith “loves” it when audiences are drunk.

The 30-year-old pop star is unable to drink before a show but thinks it is “fabulous” to look out during a concert and to find that the crowd is intoxicated.

Sam said: “I love it when the crowd are drunk, it is fabulous, I can’t drink though before I sing. I have never really done that. But I am down for people to get drunk and wine drunk is a fabulous drunk and I am ready!”

Meanwhile, the ‘Stay With Me’ hitmaker was asked about the recent 200 Greatest Singers of All Time list published by Rolling Stone magazine – which was topped by late soul legend Aretha Franklin but controversially missed out ‘My Heart Will Go On’ hitmaker Celine Dion – and noted that other music icons such as ‘Over the Rainbow’ songstress Judy Garland and jazz singer Sarah Vaughan were also overlooked, but dismissed the ranking as unimportant because they all have “such an incredible fanbase” to begin with.

Showmax Drama Series Single Kiasi Is Back For Season 2!

Published

on

The Single Kiasi S1 finale ended in a cliffhanger when during their reunion dinner, Eric (Michael Munyoki) found out that his wife Rebecca (Faith Kibathi) was cheating on him with a hotshot celebrity (Lenana Kariba); Sintamei (Gathoni Mutua) found out she was pregnant after her clandestine affair with her young intern (Brian Abajah); while Mariah’s (Minne Kariuki) relationship with J.K (Mburu Kimani) took another big blow.

In season two, seeking a fresh start, Sintamei becomes her own boss when she makes good on her goal to start her own firm. This leads to a reunion with an old friend (Grace Wacuka), who buys a majority stake in the new venture. All the while, Sintamei eagerly anticipates motherhood and accepts the likelihood of raising her child alone.

Mariah on the other hand, having endured the final rejection from J.K, makes a life-changing decision and resumes a life of carefree adventures with her loyal cousin Ritchie (Kevin Maina) by her side. Ritchie expands his horizons by playing the field in an effort to find a life away from his sugar mummy’s beck and call.

On the other side of town, Rebecca and Eric’s marriage is at its lowest point. Despite her best efforts at reconciliation, Eric behaves erratically in an effort to get even with her for cheating on him. Things get even more complicated when Eric introduces a new woman in his life, who takes pleasure in Rebecca’s suffering.

Joining our three ladies in their never-ending relationship drama and entanglements in Nairobi are Ian Mbugua as a witty, sophisticated doctor that Mariah is set on wooing; Fidel Maithya as a college professor who takes a liking to Rebecca; and Quincy Rapando as Sintamei’s new adventurous love interest.

Just like season one, Single Kiasi season two is directed and produced by Insignia Productions duo Grace Kahaki and Philippe Bresson, known for shows like New Beginnings, Socialites, and Pieces of Us.

Catch Single Kiasi S2 only on Showmax, with new episodes every Monday.
