“He takes care of everything,” Presley says
Apparently, practice makes perfect where Lisa Marie Presley and marriage are concerned.
Presley, the daughter of rock legend Elvis Presley — and a serial wife — appears on Friday night’s edition of “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” to discuss why her current marriage works. Presley said there’s a reason her union with guitarist, music producer and director Michael Lockwood has endured, where her others have failed.
“He takes care of everything,” Presley, who had previously been married to Danny Keough, Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage, said. “He picks the musicians. He gets them ready to tour. That’s how we met, so we kind of knew each other that way and fell in love — you know, by just working together. I’m just amazed at how much he takes on and how much he deals with and handles.”
Presley added that the pair brings their young twin daughters, Harper Vivienne Ann and Finley Aaron Love, on tour with them, which adds to the workload.
“Because we have to do … you know, we bring the babies with us and it’s always … there’s always a lot going on, so he is incredible. We’ve been together for 10 years now, and it’s been … it’s been pretty outstanding.”
At age 46, Lisa Marie Presley, the only daughter of music legend Elvis Presley, is raising 5-year-old twins with her husband, Michael Lockwood. Along with her young kids, Presley also has adult children, ages 21 and 24, from her first marriage. In the above clip from "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" she talks about her parenting style.
"I'm very, very much a very strong and intense lioness mother," Presley says. "Very scary, intense lioness mother."
So much so, that Presley says her older children wouldn't tell her certain things. "If something happened to them or someone was bullying or doing something, they knew that I would be very proactive in dealing with it, so they wouldn't tell me a lot," she says. "So I'm very, very protective number one. Also, [I] want to be their friend and protect them, but also get them to learn how to live in the world that we're living in."
Also in the above video, Presley talks about explaining who her famous father was to her kids.
"They kind of know, because they heard music and stuff and they've gotten the idea," Presley says. "I just say he was a very special person who sang and he touched a lot of people in the world and, and people loved him and they're going to love you because of him. And they kind of understand that."
Though Presley has become a musical star in her own right, says she's very hard on herself and would never "be so bold" as to say her father approves. "But my hope is that he would be very proud of me," Presley says.
Lisa Marie Presley will be a featured guest on Oprah Winfrey's "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" TV show airing on OWN, Oprah's TV network.
