Prince Harry scoffs at Graceland: "Designer was on acid"

The United States' resident British royal was unimpressed with The King of Rock n' Roll's historic home, according to his recently released memoir.

In his new autobiography, "Spare," Prince Harry described being unimpressed with Graceland, former home of the late Elvis Presley.

"People variously called the house a castle, a mansion, a palace. But it reminded me of the badger sett," Prince Harry wrote. "Dark, claustrophobic. I walked around saying, ‘The King lived here, you say? Really?’"

Elvis lived at Graceland from June 26, 1957, until his death Aug. 16, 1977.

In the book, Prince Harry quipped that whoever picked out the decor of the famous residence must have been on drugs.

Prince Harry recalled, "I stood in one tiny room with loud furniture and shag carpet and thought, ‘The King’s interior designer must have been on acid.’"

The immensely popular tourist attraction attracts more than 600,000 visitors a year, according to the property, and features some 200,000 square feet of entertainment space, restaurants, gift shops and more.

It is the second most-visited house in the country, behind only the White House.

Harry, contrary to your entire limited real world experience, not all "Kings" have their homes bought and paid for by taxpayers, nor had the opportunity to pillage their subjects for centuries and be bribed for royal favors in order to have elegantly staged homes.

Lolani Palace is a palace of course. But as a structure its a 19th century mansion, nowhere near the scale of England's palaces. Even aristocrats not kings had enormous palaces in England.

USA has some very grand mansions. Graceland was never one of them.

My parents' home was built in the 70s and their bedroom in particular was very tacky until they could afford renovations in the 90s. They kept a second TV and VCR in there so all friends and cousins who came to our house and watched shows/movies with us had been in there. Even though my siblings and I knew it was really tacky, none of our visitors were rude enough to say anything to us or in a way that it might have reached us as they lived in a similar style.

Harry is very rude to say such a thing about Graceland publicly. Anyone who saw a photo of Elvis on a Las Vegas stage should have known he was deeply into the 70s aesthetic.

Well now, this is interesting, especially given Harold’s father’s reputation as a notorious critic of modern architecture.

Graceland was built in 1939 and not acquired by Presley until 1957, so the “acid” aspect wasn’t built in. But American art and design was strongly influenced by mid-20th century recreational drug culture, in which Elvis was a notorious participant.

Granted, 70s styles were hideous, but Harry's comments about Graceland are something you would say privately amongst friends and not broadcast to the world. It was so tacky of him to do that.

Maybe he doesn't understand how much Elvis is a part of American culture, and how he's still revered.

I've heard that Biltmore (Asheville, NC) and Hearst Castle are quite grand. Never been. Oheka Castle has 127 rooms and is 109,000 square feet though it's probably only a shadow of its former self because it went through a long period of decline. Many of the really grand mansions from the Gilded Age have been demolished because they were too expensive to keep up.

He is especially horrible about a matron named Pat at Ludgrove Prep School of whom he writes: "Pat wasn’t hot. Pat was cold. Pat was small, mousy, frazzled and her hair fell greasily into her always tired eyes."

He goes on to call her "empathy-challenged" but says with no trace of irony that he also used to delight in mocking her physical disabilities from a deviated spine.

Imagine what this woman, assuming she is still alive, must feel reading this? Or what her family must feel?

At what point in history has anyone in Britain ever kept their mouth shut about how they feel about Americans in general?

This was a case of a single Brit joking about how tacky Graceland is, which is something Americans themselves do. Anyone who is trying to say that it's offensive to mention that Graceland is tacky doesn't understand American culture at all.

Of course I can't find it now, but this entire thread reminds me of a bit Jake Johannsen did about 30 years ago, how he went to Graceland and a Brit on the tour with him said, "Hmm, it's all a bit tacky, innit?" and everyone busted up laughing at the understatement. Then Jake says something to the effect of, "Yeah, it looks like something an uneducated hillbilly who was suddenly given a ton of money would do" and, again, everyone laughed.

There may still be a handful of hardcore Elvis fans out there who were legitimately offended, but 99.44% of the people offended by this are just the usual obsessive haters who won't shut the fuck up about how much they hate this couple.

Purposely misunderstanding what I meant when I said "American culture" is pathetic, r88.

Elvis is a common cultural touchstone that represents tackiness, gaudiness, excess and waste. Graceland is a monument to that. Its reputation has improved over the years, starting with the Paul Simon song, but it's understood by anyone in the U.S. who knows what Graceland is that it is excessively tacky, just like Elvis' jumpsuits, his hair dye, his wife's 3-foot-tall wig at their wedding.

All that blather you posted, which I suspect was just meant to upset Americans, or maybe just me in particular, is completely beside the point. Harry talking about the ugly tackiness of Graceland is boring. It's a non-story. It's the equivalent of jokes about airplane food. He's just expressing his version of accepted American truths, and you foolish old darlings are trying to make us believe he's being insulting, rude, awful, and completely out of line. What we're trying to tell you is that no one cares EXCEPT foolish old ladies like you, and you'd be having an epic emotional meltdown no matter what he said.

As a broke person who has never decorated any home beyond buying some cheap flat pack furniture and some bedding I'll add that I don't like Graceland, Buckingham palace or Harry's Santa Barbara place. Graceland is tacky and OTT, Buckingham Palace is cold and museum like and from what I have seen of Harry's house it's a a lot of brown and beige and looks like a nice Ritz Carlton circa 1995.

If I had to live in one it would be Graceland though. Some rooms are very cosy if tacky. The largest house I have lived in was 1000 sq ft and it was too big for one person. I basically lived in one room, used one toilet and slept in one bedroom. I understand having a home that is not so big it feels like a hotel or museum and decorating it to your tastes rather than creating something that would look good in next month's architectural digest.

Exactly!

If he had praised Graceland, the KGs would have said he's tacky and has no taste.

But since he said it's tacky, they've taken the opposite position.

It really doesn't matter what he or Meghans says or does.

The KGs will ALWAYS take the opposing view point..

Just like their MAGA Trump-swilling counterparts here in the US.

[quote] I've seen dozens and dozens of comments here saying the BRF are lazy, they dont really do anything and every thing they say and do and wear is judged by the entire world at large.

r104. What you wrote here is true.

I'm r88, I'm a Native American, among those people whose culture America tried to destroy. That's why I know there is no such thing as "American culture", except what I point out at r88.

I don't share the same reaction to those you point out. I think what the Royals do is damn hard work. And yeah, I noticed they're wealthy, privileged, White, but I wouldn't change my life among the poor and obscure for theirs, no way, no how.

I'd take the money if I could be anonymous.

You're, however, flat-out wrong when you write this:

[quote] You realize Elvis was only an American icon right? Outside of trashy Memphis and certain parts of 'Merica he is not respected as a musician and they could give a shit about that fat bastard who died on the toilet.

It's easy to caricature Elvis, but even a cursory, shallow, look at his cultural and historical impact on planet Earth can't be minimized.

I'll grant you that in terms of sheer musicianship, aside from his charismatic persona and singing talent, he' s not at the level of say, a Jimi Hendrix on guitar, but you're minimizing Elvis in a way that cannot be objectively supported.

Hell, to this day, just about country on Earth has an Elvis fan club and impersonators.

I just was hoping that Harry's observations about Elvis would have been a bit deeper. As r82 correctly points out:

[quote] He is supposed to have been raised with enough manners not to talk shit about other people in public. It is the guy who grew up poor who knew that.

and that poor guy was Elvis. He wasn't reared in a palace or among servants. He was born dirt-poor, remembered where he came from and was a generous guy.

And, oh, by the way, he was one of the most famous persons to walk planet Earth, and will still matter long after all of us, including Harry, are taking our dirt naps.

NEW YORK (AP) _ Public Enemy frontman Chuck D derided Elvis Presley on the group’s 1989 anthem ``Fight The Power,″ but it turns out his feelings for Presley are a little more complicated than the song suggests.

``As a musicologist _ and I consider myself one _ there was always a great deal of respect for Elvis, especially during his Sun sessions. As a black people, we all knew that,″ the rapper said.

``My whole thing was the one-sidedness _ like, Elvis’ icon status in America made it like nobody else counted. ... My heroes came from someone else. My heroes came before him. My heroes were probably his heroes. As far as Elvis being ‘The King,’ I couldn’t buy that.″

Chuck D spoke to Newsday about Presley’s legacy for a 25th anniversary story on the singer’s death.

On ``Fight the Power,″ he said of Presley, ``Elvis was a hero to most/But he never meant (expletive) to me, you see/Straight up racist that sucker was, simple and plain.″

As for whether there is a modern-day Elvis, Chuck D points to Eminem.

``Eminem is the new Elvis because, number one, he had the respect for black music that Elvis had,″ Chuck D said. ``I think he’s courteous and sympathetic to black music, and, unfortunately, he’s more sympathetic to black music than many black artists themselves.″

How Elvis Presley’s ‘It’s Now or Never’ inspired Barry White in jail

So how does White factor into all this? According to The Independent, White said he and his brother were a “gang” during their teenage years. “We were a two-man gang, respected and feared,” he recalled. “For years we ran and ruled the streets of our neighborhood,”

At 16, White went to jail for stealing tires. “In jail, I heard ‘It’s Now or Never’ by Elvis Presley – it was an awakening, like somebody hitting me with a baseball bat right in the face,” he said. “When I got out, I swore to myself: never again.” The Guardian reports “It’s Now or Never” made him decide to pursue a musical career. He worked with a band called The Upfronts before starting a solo career.

White made the right decision, commercially speaking. Six of his singles reached the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100: “It’s Ecstasy When You’re Next to Me,” “Never, Never Gonna Give Ya Up,” “I’m Gonna Love You Just a Little More Baby,” “You’re The First, The Last, My Everything,” “What Am I Gonna Do With You,” and “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Babe.” The latter song became White’s only No. 1 hit. White made it to the top — and Elvis inspired him to try.

The USA, as is its wont, dealt out a huge economic and lack of recognition injustice to Black musicians and singers back when Elvis was a rising star and beyond that, too.

I happen to think Ray Charles had a point when he shared his negative feelings about Elvis. Charles correctly pointed out that black performers were gyrating and moving just the way Elvis did, but, they weren't going to let a bunch of white girls react to that, but when Elvis used those same moves, all of a sudden it was something Elvis invented.

One can know those two things. One can know that was wrong and wish it were otherwise and that every Black talented artist who was ignored while Elvis wasn't, were a household name.

Hell, right now, America's basic, factual history, when it comes to racism, slavery and stealing land, can't be taught because it may hurt the delicate feelings of some ignorant Trumper.

But damn, I LOVE Elvis Presley and ain't nothing gonna change that.

Sorry but no R119.

This thread sure went off the rails while I was away. Typical DL.

if black people hadn't been influenced by whitey and whitey hadn't been influenced by darky

would it all just be a serious of lip smacking clicks?

Most of the Harry/Meghan threads have been killed so I'll post this here. Meghan is distancing herself from Spare.

No surprise that she'd take a wait-and-see approach to response to it. She clearly was involved in writing it, but now claims she had nothing to do with it and had concerns around releasing it. So blaming Harry for it.

Well, angry black bottom at R180 to each their own, some people are crazy about BBC, but white guys do it for me and it has nothing to do with racism, cause I am all for equal opportunities, it is just my sexual preference. I have also strong preference for guys in their late twenties and early to mid thirties, nice natural athletic body, but no roided air-matresses. Moderately masculine or mainstream, nice and friendly personality, some education needed.

I just watched some stupid old French erotic film with Joe Dallesandro and physically he would be what I am looking for. If you see a guy like that send him to me.

Who cares your preference cunt R217 nobody asked your irrelevant ass. If you’re referring to me I ain't a black bottom but you can get fucked with a rusty nail. I'm sure there's plenty of room.

r217, r180 is actually an older white Canadian man who pretends to be a young black man. He's been pulling this shit on DL for years now.

Okay dude R219 I've never stepped foot in Canada and admittedly to lazy to even find it on a map but👍 lol

Let’s face it, if you went to Graceland and Presley was there you would not care what it looked like.

Presley sings ‘Love me tender’ and the rest of us say, ‘ok’.

Jesus, take the hint, r213.

If what you're posting is getting consistently deleted, then don't just start posting your shit in other threads. All you're going to accomplish is getting other threads deleted because of your crap.

I love men who have hair like the guy at r217. The rest of him isn't bad either.

But not Keith Urban hair, streaked and straightened. That's just foul.

Not sure about his drug take that day R224, but Harold had his angry bald head up his own ass when he looked at Spongebob Sparkles' flat ass and dangling tendrils, and poshly murmured "perfect perfect perfect."

It's crazy. R227. Although he's really homely himself so in that they are evenly matched.

look at the effeminate white bottom at R222 who gives a shit about your false sense of superiority, your multiple STDs and your prolapsed anus.

by Anonymousreply 229January 28, 2023 2:40 PM

While he's probably right, to put pen to paper and write that kind of thing (admittedly via a ghost writer) is so bitchy.

And then I wonder what's his motivation? He just seems a very unhappy person.

Elvis bought Graceland with his hard earned money.

Harry, as he approaches 40, is still running to daddy for handouts.

I love the couch at r37. Not the rug, curtains, armchairs, or decor, but that couch is something I absolutely would love to have. It’s very autumnal- my favorite season.

by Anonymousreply 236January 28, 2023 5:15 PM

I forget who it was, but years ago I read about some big British rock start who had visited Graceland and then made the comment that "Elvis had really shitty taste".

by Anonymousreply 237January 28, 2023 5:17 PM

He had to fill his book with something. He certainly could rely on his long list of accomplishments.

Harold's motivations are to stab his family in the back, and money.

by Anonymousreply 239January 28, 2023 5:59 PM

R236, our couch did look like that (yellow, orange, and brown floral). Except, the tops of the backrest cushions went straight across (no notched carve-outs at the corners). We also had the matching love seat. We had one single-person chair in green crushed velvet.

by Anonymousreply 240January 28, 2023 6:23 PM

R237 Can't you see the difference between the English pop star who is probably from modest background (they mostly come from working class background) and is a self made men, who achieved fame and earned mobey through his own efforts and royal twat who was born extremely privileged, surrouned by luxury created by centuries of exploitation, who never earned money for a pack of cigarettes in 40 years. It is extremely tacky and snobish of him to mock the taste of a man who was born into poverty and didn't have hihgly qualified tutors to teach him and who made a success with his own efforts.

I would add that extorting money by badmouthing his family like Harry does is in much poorer taste than Elvis' kitchy interior design.
