Miley Cyrus: new album was inspired by Elvis
'I was inspired by Blue Hawaii. Elvis' girlfriend's name is Miley. 'I used to watch this movie over and over and over again because he would say 'I love you, Miley' and I would rewind it just so I could hear Elvis tell me that he loved me. 'I really wanted to create a song that kind of felt like Elvis... whether it's Jailhouse Rock or whatever. It is just kind of being able to take some of that Elvis spirit and put it onto a song'.
Miley also paid tribute to Elvis in her music video for single Younger Now with her quiff hairstyle and rhinestone embellished outfits.
Miley also performed a series of songs live for 'BBC 1' wearing an Elvis T-shirt.

Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD + 16 page booklet.
Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever.
This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.
The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
