Lisa Marie’s Homecoming

Written by Sabine Demosthenes

There are some songs that make your little universe stop for a few minutes.

They give you the feeling of being in the room with the people singing and you stop thinking about all your troubles and doubts. You are now hooked on the melody and the emotions of the singers putting their souls into their beautiful voices.

When this duo is a father and daughter, it makes the song a lot more powerful and ethereal.

That’s how I felt this week when I listened to Elvis and Lisa Marie Presley duet “Where No One Stands Alone” on the new gospel album of his father “Where No One Stands Alone”.

For me, Lisa Marie is the type of songwriter I have always admired. She doesn’t sugarcoat her lyrics and what you see, is what you get.

I have always been attracted to people that kept everything real and have die-hard authentic souls. When you listen to Lisa Marie’s songs such as “High Enough” from her debut album, “Now What”, you feel the authenticity and her vulnerability. Gosh, the girl is so passionate!

This week, Lisa Marie is back home in Graceland for the Elvis Week Celebration. There will be an exhibition exploring her childhood and career.

Can we expect a new album and a new tour from Ms. Presley in 2018?

Something tells me…

Yes!

We will continue to enjoy her musical journey and she will gladly invite us to join this beautiful journey her way.

Advice for the young at heart

Dear Beyoncé fans,

Yes, you guys, even other celebrities.

I would like to address my concerns about your sanity.

Fan mania

Back in the day, we were amazed when Michael Jackson moonwalked his way across the stage at every concert. We were the generation that wanted to be the epitome of cool. We were a Wu-Tang Nation, a Tribe Called Quest Squad. The Brandy and Monica drama was our lunchtime discussion, no hashtags required. Whitney and Mariah were the Diva Queens, but we were reminded that they too were human and flawed. Not the goddesses of planet Earth.

Today, it seems Beyoncé is the only being a walking supreme Mother Earth mother and everything she does is worshipped like she was the Messiah.

Bey

There are some problems guys…

Did she find a cure for any disease? Did she create a new technology with the purpose to give people a better life? Did she fight the good fight, to relentlessly bring justice to the less fortunate?

No.

She is an entertainer, a good one. I do respect her dedication to entertaining us mortals, but that’s it. I respected her more when she was keeping her life more private. Now, all I see is a brand, not a human being.

Madonna, Tina Turner, Whitney Houston, Cindy Lauper, Joan Jett, Reba McEntire, Bonnie Raitt, Salt’n’Pepa, MC Lite and Lauryn Hill were the ultimate warrior women in the music industry. Yes, they were admired for the passion they brought to their art and that was pretty much it.

I’m tired of reading about or listening to people that put Beyoncé on a pedestal like she was the next best thing after the creation of Nutella (I love Nutella – my life depends on it). I feel even worse when I read about other celebrities acting like total stupid groupies.

Come on, have some self-respect.

Fans crying

To the Beyhive crazy crowd, please chill out. I mean it.

She is not a God. She is an entertainer, one that may take herself a little too seriously (remember the pregnancy pictures of her twins, last year’s Grammy performance with the Mother Mary theme, her Lemonade video clip, and many other examples, unfortunately).

I still believe she could be a really cool person to hang out with, but you guys are not obligated to be fanatics and idolize her. Admiring her accomplishments as an entertainer, ok, but being a crazy-ass fanatic, hell no!

Beyoncé is a human being, like the rest of us. She is not perfect. I want to see a bit more authenticity from her through sharing less of her private life. By not making a grand spectacle of her every outing with the crazy outfits and the entourage.

Damn, could she be more like Tina Turner?

Tina Turner

Be the big diva on stage and give everything you got, but after, please just be human.

So Beyhave’s army, you may want to send me some hateful emails and I guess you will put my name on your blacklist, but please, consider my advice to you, the young at heart.

Just breathe.
