Priscilla Presley, ex-wife of legendary musician Elvis Presley, firmly stands by her belief ‘The Simpsons’ should be banned because ‘it’s not good for kids’.
Priscilla is clearly not a fan of the renown animated TV show, which sees Homer and his dysfunctional family get into numerous escapades, because she believes the subject matter does not promote good morals.
When Stylist magazine asked what she would do if she was ‘Queen of Everything’ in an interview with, she said:
‘I’d have to ban ‘The Simpsons’. It’s not good for people’s moral compass. It’s OK for adults as we can put it all together but it’s not good for kids and I think we need to bring back something more family orientated like ‘Leave It To Beaver’ that I used to watch when I was growing up.’
Priscilla is very concerned about the decline of religion in Western society and the amount of children being raised by divorced parents.
Priscilla explained: ‘We’re in trouble. Churches are going, religious leaders are being attacked. I do think we need guidance because we’re in trouble right now for not having any. It’s the same with parents. When we’re growing up it’s our parents who we look to to give us guidance, the morals, the ethics, the standards. I find that because kids are being raised by multiple parents with the divorce rate as high as it is, everyone is thinking differently.’
Priscilla’s daughter Lisa Marie Presley – her only child with Elvis – has been divorced three times after marriages to Danny Keough, Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage all failed.
Lisa Marie now lives in East Sussex, England with her husband, guitarist Michael Lockwood, and their four-year-old twin girls Harper and Finley and Lisa’s two children.
Lisa also has two grown up sons, Riley and Benjamin from her first marriage to musician Danny.
