Priscilla Presley: Glee should cover Elvis

Priscilla Presley wants television show Glee to do an Elvis-themed episode.

The actress married rock ‘n’ roll star Elvis in 1967 and the couple went on to have a daughter, Lisa Marie, before divorcing in 1973. Priscilla is a huge fan of Glee – which follows a group of high school students who belong to a musical club - and thinks the cast would give terrific renditions of her ex-husband’s most famous songs.

Glee has already paid tribute to a host of music acts including Madonna, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and Journey and Priscilla believes Elvis should be honoured next.

"I think it's great,” she told ET when asked if she is a fan of Glee. “They should be doing Elvis music on there one time... I think it would be great, why not."

Priscilla was also asked about Justin Bieber, the teenage pop star who is currently setting music charts alight across the world. The 65-year-old is unsure if anyone will ever achieve the same level of success as Elvis did, but she does appreciate Justin’s music. Priscilla believes the music industry has changed a great deal since Elvis hit the charts in the 50s and she doesn’t think current artists can sustain such lengthy careers.

"You know, today is such a different time. It's just a different time,” she explained. “Justin Bieber is actually doing great at a very young age, that's another phenomena. The test of time will be how long he can stay on top."

    China faces a dilemma in Ayungin Shoal and other contested areas. If it waits for the ITLOS—which may decide against it—it would have tacitly bound itself to UNCLOS and risk a rogue state reputation if it asserts its claim in the South China Sea. If its militarily acts now, it may face international isolation. …
