It seems like rumours that LMP is out of Scientology might be true after all: http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runnin...een_nothin.php
I don't care for the song but the lyrics do point to that she is out. Good for her, if true.
i love her writings but not her voice. and the some songs (from what i've heard) new album sound like they are about MJ. if she has finally come to her senses and left the church i applaud her. if true, wonder what mommy dearest thinks
Michael, I love you now more then I can say and I'm sorry for everything in the past.........

Everybody who is somebody defends Michaels innocents. Only nobody's accuse and make up lies or speculate!
It was a long while ago when I tried to listen to her past stuff, and the songs and the way she sang them seemed so angry and filled with disgust. I couldn't enjoy them at all. But this, even though she is doing what seems to be her typical "calling people out" in her lyrics kind-of-song, has a very mature feel to it, perhaps due to the way she is now choosing to deliver her words through a more mellow, even voice. Yet, even so, it still comes off pointed, and a bit affecting. Her voice sounds good, to me. Very low, though, but that's a cool style.
Now I'm curious about her other new songs from this album, and how she will handle them. I sense true growth. Of course, it might just be seen in this one song. We'll see.
Lisa Marie sort of reminds me of that part in The King's Speech, when King George VI's speech therapist asks him, during a heated argument, "Why should anyone listen to you?" And the King before he even realizes what he's saying passionately responds with, "Because I have something to say!" and his therapist calmly responds, "Yes you do."
Lisa Marie has things to say, they are deep inside of her, and she has found an avenue in which to express them.

You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet?
"So Long" from the new album. It's strongly suspected to be a break-up song with Scientology! From this blog: http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runnin...cientology.php
We turned once again to Jefferson Hawkins for his thoughts on the song. Hawkins was once responsible for selling Scientology to the masses, and knows a thing or two about media messages. He left the church in 2005 and wrote a book about his experiences. He's especially good at describing what Scientologists go through when they leave the church.
"Wow, that kind of says it all, doesn't it?" he said when I first showed him the lyrics.
"The honesty and the passion are clear, and it seems as though she's woken up," he says.
"It's what I would expect, having spent time with her," he goes on to explain. "Some people, when they leave Scientology, get very sad. Some get scared. But some, like me and apparently like Lisa, get ****ing pissed. It has the same tone as my own thing, when I said publicly, show me a mother****ing 'Clear'."
I also pointed out a line that, to me, seems an obvious slap to the church: "Nothing's more clear than goodbye."
Beghe explained that many longtime Scientologists are being driven away from the church because of the way current leader David Miscavige has tinkered with L. Ron Hubbard's "technology" -- at one point telling advanced, longtime members that they would have to redo expensive levels of training and, essentially, go "clear" all over again. It made no sense to Beghe, he tells me, and started him on the road to breaking free. Many other veteran members now coming out of the church make the same complaint.
"A lot of people are waking up because of that thing," Beghe says. And then he added something that really surprised me.
"I also think Kirstie has one foot out the door. And Kirstie and Lisa are two hearts with one beat. They're close. They're good friends," he says.
We'll be paying attention as Lisa gives interviews this week. Will a reporter please ask her about these lyrics?

Just watched her perform on American Idol. She looks great (not a fan of the black dress though) but I didn't like the song. I've never really liked her singing voice particularly.
Lisa Marie Presley - You Aint See Nothing Yet - American Idol 2
Lisa Marie Presley will perform "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" (5/21), "Jimmy Kimmel Live" (5/22).
She was asked about Scientology by one reporter:
http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runnin...ew_zealand.phpScientology: Kiwi Reporter Puts Lisa Marie Presley On the Spot
We got a message yesterday from Russell Baillie, entertainment editor of the New Zealand Herald, in Auckland.
Russell told us that he'd seen our articles, so when he had the opportunity to interview Presley this week, he asked her outright the question we've wanted to ask ourselves.
Here's the exchange he sent us, which this morning he published at the Herald's website:
So is it [about Scientology]?
"Right,'' she replies, gathering her thoughts. "Well sadly I am not discussing any kind of religion or politics while I am doing the promo.''
Well, I am asking about the specific song on the record you are promoting ...
"I understand. But I don't typically discuss what I, personally, am writing about in my songs. I don't discuss what I write about and I don't discuss religion or politics. So there you have me backed in a corner ...''
That, my friends, is what we in the business call a "non-denial denial."
I told Russell that it didn't surprise me that Lisa Marie would avoid answering. She has an album to sell, and her label probably doesn't want its launch to get caught up in questions about her former religion.
But my hat's off to Russell Baillie for doing what no American entertainment reporter has had the gumption to do, and ask her outright about what seems so obvious from her lyrics.
Back in this country, it's still business as usual, with the press fawning over Scientology's celebrities and rarely asking them tough questions about all the messes the church finds itself in these days.
