Everyone i've spoken to thinks Lisa's singing career is a joke. The perception is, the only reason she has the contract is because of her connections to MJ and Elvis. Even on the newsgroups they're making fun of her getting signed. Everyone keeps asking "if she's so talented, why couldn't she get signed before then?"
Do any of you think she will ever be able to overcome the cynics?
Anonymous: Of course she can. People are just gossiping as usual. Lisa will prove them wrong. A lot of celebrities go through this. She must remain focus and keep her faith. She will be okay. Some people are just angry with her because she has to great men as a connection. (11-Jun-98 12:46:52)
Anonymous:SHE CANNOT, CUZ IT'S TRUE! SHE AIN'T WORTH ANYTHING, IF SHE WASN'T A PRESLEY SHE WOULD NEVER HAVE GOTTEN A RECORD DEAL, AND EVEN SO SHE NEEDED TO MAYYR MICHAEL JACKSON. ALL THE "CYNICALS" ARE MORE THAN RIGHT! (11-Jun-98 12:57:22)
Boom-Boom: I just found out something interesting...Lisa Marie signed with Java Records, right? Glen Ballard's label with CAPITAL/EMI. Did you guys know that EMI not only owned Java with Ballard, but also owns VIRGIN records? You know, the label that Janet Jackson is on? Co-incidence? Lets see, Glen Ballard is an old songwriter for Michael Jackson, and if my memory serves correctly(and if I'm wrong, please correct me.)he told Kurt Loder of MTV that he still considers MJ a colleague and a friend. Janet Jackson is Lisa Marie's best friend and former sister-in-law. Janet happens to be one of EMI's leading recording artists and major stockholder(they gave janet lots of EMI stock when she sighned that big contract with them a coupla years ago.) Hmmmmmmmmmmm. I can understand the cynics. THERE ARE TO MANY JACKSON CONNECTIONS WITH THIS DEAL! No way could she have gotten it on her own! I but anything that the "lawyer" that got them connected was one of MJ's lawyers. The writing on the wall is just too obvious. (11-Jun-98 13:01:43)
hoju: Even if her connections were JACKSON JACKSON JACKSON... how does that make her career a joke? She is a beautiful woman, with a beautiful voice, that's two up on her side... I don't think a record company would be maronic enough to sign someone up because of their "connections", no matter who they are, if the artist isn't talented. - PS I still think she got it on her own. In show business, everyone knows everyone, it isn't a coincedance... (11-Jun-98 13:08:31)
