Austin Butler’s Golden Globes Tribute To Lisa Marie Presley Goes Viral After Her Death

Following Lisa Marie Presley’s tragic death on Thursday, Austin Butler’s Golden Globes speech has gone viral. 

Just 2 days before she died, Lisa attended the awards ceremony with her mother, Priscilla Presley for the movie Elvis, which bagged multiple awards during the event. 

Austin Butler, who played Elvis in the biopic, also took to the stage that night to accept his award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture-Drama.

During his speech, he spoke out about Lisa and Priscilla Presley, and following her tragic death, his heartwarming words have gone viral. 

Lisa Marie Presley is the only daughter of iconic singer Elvis Presley and actress Priscilla Presley. She was born on February 1, 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee, and has become an international star in her own right. The shared legacy between her parents has created a unique bond between Lisa Marie and her fans around the world. 

Lisa’s debut album, To Whom It May Concern was a smashing success. Released in 2003, the record raced up to the fifth spot on the Billboard charts and earned her a gold certification. The album featured an eclectic mix of genres including R&B, pop, hip-hop, and soul.

Her music career, fashion sense, activism, and philanthropy have made Lisa Marie a beloved figure in pop culture, making the news of her passing even more devastating. 

According to TMZ, Lisa was taken to the hospital after her housekeeper noticed that she was not responding. On seeing this, her former husband Danny Keogh quickly stepped in to give CPR until paramedics arrived and started their procedure. They also allegedly injected epinephrine once during the attempt of reviving her.

Paramedics managed to find her pulse before she reached the hospital, but sadly, her condition worsened and she didn’t make it. 

A representative told TMZ: “Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie. They are profoundly grateful for the support, love, and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”

The news of her death has come as a huge shock to fans, as she only recently made an appearance at the Golden Globes, which she attended with her mother, Priscilla.

Lisa Marie could be seen alongside Elvis actor, Austin Butler, on the  red carpet for the event, and Butler later shared some heartwarming words about the star in his acceptance speech.

Taking to the stage, Butler said he ​​wanted to “thank the Presley family” for everything they’ve done for him while making the movie, adding: “Thank you, guys. Thank you for opening your hearts, your memories, your home to me. Lisa Marie, Priscilla, I love you forever.”

His words have since been described as “extra powerful” following the devastating news of her death, with Twitter users sharing their thoughts on his speech…

One user wrote: “The fact that just two days ago Lisa Marie and her mom watched Austin Butler accept an award for portraying Elvis and now she has just passed away. It goes to show how fast and unexpected life is.”

While another commented: “This is so devastating, especially because she practically”adopted” him and she said she had the urge to mother him. She should be here watching him win his Oscar.”

“So amazing that he spoke so eloquently Tuesday night, he honored the Presley family that night…it’s amazing that was only two nights ago…” a third wrote.

Our thoughts go out to her family and friends during this difficult time.

Rest in peace, Lisa Marie Presley.
