Lisa Marie Presley - Q & A

 Q: So you're living in England now. Please tell me you live in a manor house with liveried footmen, like on "Downton Abbey." A: I don't. It's one of those conventional thatched-roof houses. They say it was a medieval house. I don't know what that means, but it's very interesting (looking). Q: Could you have made this new album if you hadn't moved to England? A: I could have made it, but it wouldn't have turned out the same. ... It took somebody not pushing me — giving me the space to do what I want — and I ended up doing the right thing. That's kind of what happened. I was set up to write with so many different writers, from pop to rock to electronic to just whatever — given so much freedom — I just wound up embracing what I should have embraced.

$10 Cover charge for Beale St?

The Beale Street Merchant's Association is considering charging cover to get onto the street on weekend nights between April and October .

It might get rid of somebody that doesn't want to spend any money and just hang out all night long and not do anything. Maybe make some room for someone that could," says Agee. Locals and tourists didn't seem too bothered by the cover charge, as long as $9 of the $10 would come back to them. The Beale Street Merchant's Association says the idea is under serious consideration right now.
