In a new interview with News Corp, former Elvis wife Priscilla Presley says The King would have no interest in the internet or social media if he were alive today.
“(Elvis) was a very private person,” she explains. “I definitely can’t see him on social media. We’ve joked about this before with some of the inner-circle, saying that Elvis would never be on Facebook!”
Priscilla goes on to describe the dangerous Xanadu that was Graceland, which led her and her husband to withdraw socially. “Outside of my life with Elvis I didn’t really know anything. I had to start editing what I was saying, I had to start being careful with what I said (to people outside of Graceland) because I didn’t want to betray Elvis in any way,” she confesses.
Elvis Presley died on August 16th, 1977. Late in life, he had avoided going out in public due to the constant crush of reporters and fans. Presley was even known to complain through his own movie premieres, pointing at the screen saying “Look at that fast-talking, no-acting fool up there.”
