Ann margarett and Elvis in middle of their love affair watched news reports of president John F Kennidy assasaination. I find that interesting and picture them/ how they reacted~ I'm not sure if it ever has but that scene should be in a Elvis Bio movie.

It reminds me of a song.
"For The Love Of Money" by the O'Jays.
Lyrics go,.."People will steal from their own Mother".... Or Father, in this case.

Elvis has had most singles and albumns to be certified gold ,platinum,etc. by RIAA -he has couple more that qualify that haven't been certified yet. Elvis also was in top 10 of best selling catalog artists last year but Michael Jackson wasn't. Go ahead check Guiness Book of World Records~ Elvis biggest selling artist

Elvis released about 3 albums a year while he was alive. Since Elvis's death in 1977 (over 35 years ago)there has been scores of different releases some going gold or platinum. Michael Jackson in comparison released albums that were years apart-also material hasn't been repackaged any where near the way Elvis material has been repackaged into new releases~

King Justin has sold more than any of those lowly artists and has replaced Michael Joseph Jackson in the history books as the undefeated king of pop and dance. You floons are fools that live in a long distant and forgotten past. This is the modern era and Michael Jackson's faded crown was ripped off his dead, balding head and given to King Justin to shine and add jewels of diamonds and rubies onto its sparkling golden sheen. Oprah Winfrey is all so powerful and people believe what she claims. Justin will be on top will all his fantastic masterpieces.

Because, stupid, it's about TOTAL record sales.

Over one billion for Elvis and counting.

The biggest seller EVER.

Fact.
