The decidedly unhip British Invasion 2.0 continues apace with The Sun reporting that since she and her free-loading, no-rent paying roommate/ex-husband Prince Andrew got booted out of their Royal Lodge by his brother King Charles III, Sarah Ferguson aka Original Fergie, has been nosing around on this side of the pond, and has already “struck up a close friendship with” a “mysterious Texan billionaire” while “networking in the US.” And Fergie’s next conquest might take place at this Sunday’s Oscars ceremony. The Sun reports that Fergie may even take the stage to hand out an award based on her “very close” friendship with the Presley family, recently-deceased Lisa Marie Presley in particular. My, my, my; m’lady sure does get around!
Since He’s Done Talking About His Accent, Austin Butler Is Back To Talking About Being Hospitalized After “Elvis” Wrapped
Since you all made fun of that Elvis boy’s accent so much, Austin Butler has had to pivot his entire Oscars campaign back to focusing on the toll playing Elvis Presley took on the rest of his body. At least he can finally give his vocal chords a rest; right after they stop singing Hallelujah! At the very beginning of his Oscar campaign way back in May, Austin talked about how his body “just started shutting down the day after I finished Elvis” and he had to be rushed to the hospital. Now, with only a week to go before his big night, Austin dropped a bucket down into his well of anecdotes, only to have it come back up filled with dust.
Oscar nominee and Vanessa Hudgen’s best friend, Austin Butler, is getting rave reviews and ovations for his performance in Elvis. He’s already won a Golden Globe, so now he’s got to campaign campaign CAMPAIGN to win the fight against Brendan Fraser, Colin Farrell, Bill Nighy, and Paul Mescal. We already heard from Austin’s singing coach that he probably shook up his vocal cords with his Elvis voice so much that it might stick with him FOREVER. And now Austin’s talking, and well, Elvis (or his accent, anyway) will be leaving the building (Austin’s vocal cords) soon.
Priscilla Presley Is Contesting An Amendment Made To A Trust For Lisa Marie Presley’s Kids Following A Big Life Insurance Payout
As we know, the last few years of Lisa Marie Presley‘s life were marked by tragedy and struggle. Right up to the bitter end and, apparently, beyond. Even though she had cause for celebration earlier this month following the success of Baz Luhman’s Elvis at the Golden Globes, that celebration was cut short two days later when she died unexpectedly following a cardiac event. Now, even in death, it seems the ghosts of her past are determined to fuck with her in the afterlife by pitting her mother, Priscilla Presley, and her daughter Riley Keough, against each other for control of a soon-be-be flush trust fund set up for her now 14-year-old twin daughters back in 2010, thanks to a pair of life insurance policies. TMZ reports that Priscilla is contesting a possible “fraudulent” 2016 amendment to the trust, which names Riley (as well as her brother Benjamin Keough who sadly died by suicide in 2020) as trustees, overriding the initial trustees, Priscilla and Barry Sigel. Barry was Lisa Marie’s former business manager, who she sued in 2018 for allegedly mismanaging her funds and causing her to be $16 million in debt.
Austin Butler Finally Acknowledged That Vanessa Hudgens Is The “Friend” Who Encouraged Him To Play Elvis
Mystery solved! Austin Butler has finally addressed the 350-pound Fat Elvis in the room and revealed the heretofore secret identity of the “friend” who told him, “You’ve got to play Elvis.” But not being one to give up a bit prematurely, even now that he’s halfway to the mountain top with a Best Actor nomination for Baz Lurhmann‘s Elvis, Austin can now let you in on a little secret. That “friend?” Well, it was his “partner at the time.” And that partner was… Well, gosh, it must have been Priscilla Presley, right? See, it’s confusing because Austin still won’t name Vanessa Hudgens, his former girlfriend of nine years, so we’re left to assume Austin is no longer Austin but is, instead, merely a vessel through which Elvis Presley will live on forever. Or at least until mid-March.
Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis has now been foisted on us (after what seemed like a long few years of “pick me-ass energy” before it was even in the can), and while it’s pulling decent numbers, there’s a glut of other summer box office darlings to compete with like Minions: Rise of Gru and Top Gun: Maverick in theaters now, with other big money makers like Thor: Love and Thunder coming down the pike. However, one thing that may remain with us long after Elvis burns out is an image that Austin Butler, who portrays Elvis throughout his tumultuous life in the film, has bestowed upon us that has now gone viral: “Sweaty Elvis.”
