Elvis gave his toys away as a child.
I don't think that he was trying to buy friendships.
Gladys must've taught him that it is better to give than recieve.
Anyway, Vernon was tight with his money and Elvis wasn't.
Since it was Elvis's money, Vernon couldn't do anything about it.
Elvis got joy seeing people happy. That is why he did it.
But if you crossed him, he would sense it.
Vernon never had any money to be tight about and was the one left to clean up Elvis's financial mess when Elvis died.

Elvis's parents were too poor to buy him toys as a child and Elvis kept to himself any way.

Let's face it, Elvis purchased friends and also made enemies along the way with his irrational behaviour and inflated ego.
Elvis would clip a police light to the roof of his Mercedes, put on a police uniform, and with a flashlight and truncheon drive out on to the roads of Tennessee and flash down other motorists who he thought were driving too fast. Then, in all seriousness, he'd give them a lesson on traffic safety.
And here was a man who proudly wore an honorary federal narcotics agent's badge, while all his retinue knew he was a hard addict.
Inevitably, the drugs had long since affected his sex life. His longterm girlfriend, Linda Thompson, who had cared most for him after his wife Priscilla had left him in 1971, once remarked that they had sex 'maybe once a year'.
You are lying and spreading hearsay from uk daily mail . Tmz asked Linda Thompson last year about elvis sexually . She stated " he was a king in bed " it's on tape .

Elvis had people who were jealous of his success.

They weren't enemies unless you are talking about Mike Stone.

You goggle too much tabloid crap on the internet.

It wasn't an honorary federal narcotic agent badge.

It was the real thing.

Elvis could carry any firearm or drugs anywhere in the world.

No one could do anything to him.

Jacko never had that kind of power, did he?

You fail.

Elvis paid Vernon sixty thousand dollars a year.

And Elvis had toys as a child.

His parents bought him his first car before his stardom.

Stop making up stuff as you go along.

He was buried within a day because the 10 different drugs in his body accelerated decomposition and the stench was unbearable.
On Michael's autopsy report, there were traces of seven different drugs in his body. You might want to read it, sometime.

The Jackson's celebrated his life with all who loved him. It was a beautiful, caring and sharing experience. They are a generous spirited family.
That media circus was disrespectful. How generous spirited for the city of L.A. Neither do I consider it respectful when his father went on television and talked about his new company, after his comments about his son. So much for a generous-spirted family.

Elvis was always on a diet but towards the end, he didn't care.

He still showed up and did the concerts, didn't he?

Jacko sat around and did very little in his last eight to twelve yrs.

Who cares if Elvis was a junkie?

All of us had known that for years and Elvis was still Elvis.

So what?

As an Elvis fan you should care. Elvis was a human being whose cry for help was ignored by everyone.

Elvis was dead at 42 whilst Michael Jackson was alive and still performed at the same age.

Elvis' hairstyle very much in Vogue with young people.

http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/news/the-kin...

""The most memorable thing about Elvis was his presence - his look, his persona and his hair - which looked effortless but actually required a lot of effort," Mr Jackson said. "The way he moved so sexually caused such controversy, it was like a revolution, why wouldn't you want to pay tribute to that?"

Meanwhile, Wacko is forgotten. As always.

Elvis: the king of cool, 35 years after his death.

You could have put up a better looking person with the hairdo because he doesn't look cool.

Michael Jackson was Mr Cool with a capital C. He made the front cover of Vogue.

Red and Sonny West would disagree because they confronted Elvis.

But Elvis was going to do what he wanted anyway.

Jacko making an appearance with Liz Taylor stroking his inflated ego?

That wasn't work.

It's apples and oranges. Elvis died a lifetime ago.

You are obsessed with him, which why you keep bringing him up.

It's like comparing Marilyn Monroe to Paris Hilton.

Elvis and Rudolph Valentino both had hair and it's a classic style.

Jacko wore women's wigs and flopped it on his bald head.

He didn't even wash it or comb it.

It was crooked when he walked into court in his pajama bottoms.

Jacko paid to be on the cover of Vogue.

Who really cares?

You said that the Jackson family were "close to perfect". I asked you to explain why you would describe such a dysfunctional family in that way and you reply by asking me "Since when is a loving family meant to be close to perfect?"
I don't want to be prickly with you, you being such a wise sage who is greatly admired and all, but how can you think that your two contradictory statements make sense?
If you read properly you would see that I wrote,'no loving family is perfect'. But of course you switched it around to score a goal. FAIL

Marily Monroe was an actress and Paris Hilton is a mattress. That is a bad example.

EP was a 50's Rock king and MJ an 80's Pop king. The comparisons are similar, from their beginnings to stardom and deaths.

Michael Jackson was not bald. Baldness does not run in his family. He only wore wigs from when his scalp got burnt to cover the bald patch.

He had numerous different wigs unlike Andy Warhol.

If Elvis and Valentino had of lived to 50 instead of 42 and 31, they would have been bald badgers.
