Elvis Presley: Racism vs Sexism – a sexuality social cocktail

During his childhood, he was literally the last white house on the bad white street on the wrong side of town.

so, every morning, when he step outside of his particular square shack divided into two rooms, each with an outhouse in back.

if he turned one way, it was the next white kid to play with

and if he turned the other, it was the first black kid on the next block

he had pals on both sides

his early childhood was not segregated at home, only at the school he went to, he crushed on every girl to the point that there was a schoolyard taunt guaranteed to make a girl cry – “elvis likes you”

ElvisWorld: The Memphis Mafia origins

and, in the 1970s, Elvis did actually date a black woman, he knew the public would never accept it so it was short and sweet; and the book that I read that in was written by Nancy Rook, a Graceland maid – so first hand source.

Now, the Lisa Marie and Jackson marriage, I have to say was actually legitimate romantically.

Sweet Inspirations Myrna Smith took Lisa Marie to see the Jackson 5 perform in Vegas in the 1970s.

Lisa Marie apparently told Myrna that she would marry Micheal Jackson and she told Lisa Marie, then 5 years old, that that was never gonna happen.

Myrna also dated one of Elvis’ MM Guys – Jerry Schilling.

that was in his inner circle – and even more

Surreal Memories: Elvis’ Memphis Mafia

Elvis used to hire Issac Hayes in his bar band era for his new year eve parties and he regularly helped people make contacts in the music and movie industry.

there is amazing film of Elvis meeting Roy Hamilton in 1969 – too bad there’s no sound! at the american sound studio

Elvis gave Roy one of the songs he was going to do – Angeline – and that turned out to be Hamilton’s last single.

Elvis imitated that which he held in esteem, he did not cynically copy for cash. that was why he was such a threat to the American status quo in 1950s post war economic boom of teens with cash and time – and it was big that he sang “black songs”, it was subversive because he sang black WOMEN’s songs.

Mama Thorton sang Hound Dog about her cheating man

Elvis, the cheating man, blamed the dog he was emulating, sang Hound Dog.

they were really a duet, dueling pov’s of nuance, part of the courtship dance of songs in the tradition of call and answer.

hit records often spawned novelty wanna be response songs.

Elvis the Pelvis was the fear of what he was doing to the white women.

Sinatra made them swoon, Elvis conducted orgy revivals in the 1950s,

The Blue Hawaii movie, the template of the Presley Picture.

I like to think of Elvis’s 1960s as doing world music before that became genre in the 1990s .

Elvis did hawaiian/calypso and latin bossa nova and european folk tunes into the middle 1960s and then at the end, he did some mild psychelic – Edge of Reality is a drug trip song from Easy Come Easy Go, and EuroDisco – City by Night from Double Trouble.

In the 1970s, he was all power ballads and swamp stadium rock on tour doing his Vegas Cabaret. He didn’t tour the world, the world came to Vegas to see Elvis.

I was re-watching the Elvis That’s the Way it Is new all Elvis version – and I think while a concert documentary is a good thing, that original version’s segment of the British Fan club made it documentary about the impact of Elvis and was explaining fandom, not Elvis, who was the ticket seller.

anyway, in the new version, there’s more concert footage and in one song Elvis is working the stage, doing the kisses

and women he kisses, men he shakes hands

and then, after a few women, he bends down to kiss the guy, who does not even react and there’s a audience laugh before Elvis shakes the guy’s hand. the band never breaks and Elvis doesn’t either

but it was an odd moment.

and most of all, there’s actual video on youtube of Elvis and Charlie Hodge with Elvis singing Are you lonesome tonight and Hodge is doing stereotype mincing routine, making Elvis laugh and flub the song, in the Elvis bootleg world, it’s even refered to as “Lonesome Tonight The Gay Version” – although Elvis does not change the lyrics.

it seems more like an in joke being played on the audience, rather than homophobic joke the audience is in on.

and that was from the era where fans had to sneak in rolls of film and camera which was often in 2 parts and heavy to carry and clunky to hide.

in any case Jailhouse Rock was the first gay #1 rock n roll song.

Jails were not coed, the writers wrote it to see if Elvis would reject it, they didn’t want to write for him until his Hound Dog disc cheques cleared.

Elvis delivered the song with the same searing sexuality as all his other teenage heavy petting 1950s songs

Walking in Memphis: Cher as Elvis!

Elvis was too pretty to be straight; while he was enlightened about ethnicity, he was sexist about women.

 

also, I believe that Elvis Presley was bisexual. His relationship with Nick Adams as an example

Book Review: Rebel & The King Expanded

but also his Memphis Mafia guys – all more masculine than Elvis

Elvis was in control of the access to women, which was why the MM guys flocked to him, for the overflow and pulling power. And, there are all the Memphis Mafia tell all books, with the obligatory orgy party scenes, Elvis as sexual conductor; and each of them saying that there was more, that they would take to their graves.

Bisexual is pretty much the only thing not officially printed, but so long published that in the 1950s, Mexico had a riot at movie theatre to protest King Creole on the basis of Elvis being homosexual as well as a false quotation about Elvis being racist towards Mexican and Black People. Which is as false as the shoe shine quote.

They had begun with Elvis as partners. Now they were nothing more than salaried sidemen. They never had a written contract, so they didn’t have a legal leg to stand on.
