It's sad that she can't seem to settle some of her demons.
I have empathy for her. No one wants to be born to become an addict of anything. She was spoiled by Elvis, first. And her lifelong bad moves or decisions (IMO), are mostly products of the addiction, disease, that does not care about celebrity, rich, poor, or everyone else in between. And money doesn't automatically fix it. if it did, many would still be with us today.
She did try the almost impossibility of making it on her own talent. And in my opinion, wrote and sang some decent songs, and had success with the more important music sophomore effort album release. It's something...no matter how small. But I think (hope I am wrong), she will struggle for a long time. And sadly, because of her (automatic by birth celebrity) relation to Elvis, will make it all the harder. I wish her well.
Well,i have sympathy for her too and what the press is making with her is cruel.
From the beginning to now....
But I don't think all her actions or wrong moves were motivated by illness......
Some things were just moves by poor judgement, like every Person can do.
Unless you trying to say that she had an illness and addiction even almost 20 years ago.
And if you think that I would like to know what makes you think that.
Cause I don't think she had addiction or illness 15 years ago necessarily.
In a recent interview, she said she became severely addicted at the age of 45.
On the other hand, in other previous interviews, she also confessed being already hooked on drugs - the first time - at the age of 14.
She's certainly not had it easy with her relationships, what with Nick Cage, Michael Jackson and the latest whoever he is. Then also having to hear about the father she probably worshipped, and to live in his shadow, and Scientology, and losing millions. I feel very sorry for her.
Indeed. I feel sorry for her too.
One of the saddest things I heard her say in an interview is that there had been occasions that she as a kid had to drag her overmedicated father to his bedroom (or resting spot). So sad. For both of them.
