Lisa Presley is, of course, the daughter of a famous singer and a beautiful actress, both of whom are entertainment industry legends well-covered by the media for decades.
For the last 20 years, however, most stories written about Lisa Marie Presley have been negative. Evidently, it became popular to compare the daughter to her megastar parents and characterize her as consistently coming up short.
Unfairly as she has long been treated by critics, especially as the ex-wife of Michael Jackson, Presley has gleaned valuable perspectives from adversity through her endurance.
Realizing that she cannot ever adequately live out her parents' careers, philosophy nor spirituality, Lisa Marie Presley forged her own path, in her own way, and in her own time.
As a career musician, Presley has experimented with sounds and imagery over the last decade in attempts to privately define herself and to present an authentic, artistic package to fans and critics.
The Princess of Rock and Roll has finally accomplished what she set out to do. Lisa Marie Presley, 44, has emerged in 2012 as a deadly-serious singer-songwriter who does her own thing quite exquisitely.
After a 7-year hiatus to effectively sort through the deepest of personal psychospiritual issues, Presley has released her third studio album, Storm & Grace, which says it all.
The new album's lead single, "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet," (video below) recently debuted amid great fanfare, but both song and album actually exceed the hype.
She bluntly addresses critics who think she's evil for no longer polishing her famous father's coffin --- and for tossing out Elvis' decayed and rotted Teddy Bear at long last.
What makes the artist's new music so satisfying are her convictions, passion, confrontation, honesty, fearlessness and decision to finally ditch the expectations placed on her by others.
Lisa Marie Presley's songwriting totally rocks and she looks phenomenal.
It is truly a wonderful thing to witness Presley, a middle aged mother, emerging from a suffocating cocoon to shine as an artist worthy of music industry recognition for giving the world something truly unique.
You ain't seen nothing yet, and it's about time for Lisa Marie Presley.
