Lisa Marie Presley Opens Up About Addiction ‘Struggle’ and Elvis in Rare TV Interview

The singer also releases a duet with her father.

In her first television appearance in four years, Elvis Presley’s only child, Lisa Marie Presley, reflected on her famous father and how his music helped ground her at a time when she really needed it.

Promoting a new duet with her dad, the gospel track "Where No One Stands Alone," the 50-year-old singer said recording the song made her feel more connected to him during a turbulent time in her life.

Dealing with a nasty divorce and custody battle, as well as a late-in-life fight with substance abuse, Presley told "TODAY" that "this particular record and this song absolutely brings me closer and grounded me in the middle of the never ending tidal wave. It kind of came down and grabbed me."

"I was overwhelmed when I was singing it and I was reading the lyrics and I was like, ‘Oh my god, I don’t know why this is happening right now but I’m going to go with it,’" she told Jenna Bush Hager from inside Graceland.

When asked what she’d say to her father if he could hear her, Presley said, "I could use your help right about now."

Reflecting on her recent battles, said said, "I’ve come a long way. I was not happy. By the way, the struggle in addiction for me started at 45 years old. It wasn’t like it was happening all my life."

"I am proud. I’ve come a long way. I have a therapist and she was like, ‘You’re a miracle. You really are.’ She’s like, ‘I don’t know how you’re still alive," she continued. "I’m not perfect. My father wasn’t perfect. No one’s perfect. It’s what you do with it after you learn and you try and help others with it."

The gospel album, also called "Where No One Stands Alone," is available now. Watch the music video with Elvis and his daughter below.
