Elvis with a wallaby on the set of ‘Jailhouse Rock’. He received it as a gift from Australian fans and, unable to keep the pet, sent it as a donation to the Memphis Zoo on June 12, 1957.

Two amazing kings… Elvis Presley and Little Richard. I will always love them both; deep, deep down in my heart. They are the best and no one in this generation will understand how I feel for them. I am a 14 year old girl (by the way) and I could NEVER see my life without these two kings. I really can’t. Their music and strong, positive attitudes really help me out in the most stressful situations. And to this day, I will never let them go and I will always respect them with the deepest passion. I am proud so say that I love my life and I love who I am and I feel grateful for bing able to hear their music. And even though Elvis has passed and Richard is retired, it doesn’t matter to me. I know Elvis is happy up there and Richard would live the rest of his life with his family. And now, because of them, I want be in a band and help “restore” old music. I want to teach the kids in this generation what REAL rock and roll is. I want to bring back the good ol’ country, gospel, and blues music too. I used to hate living in this generation and I would always wish I was born in the past… (Sometimes I still do) but I haven’t considered this: I was born in this generation to keep the legacy of rock and roll going. What if people forget ELVIS PRESLEY!? LITTLE RICHARD!? I have to keep their image alive and never let go of this passion. And I’m going to do it. With the help and guidiance of my favorite musicians… I will become a star. It may take awhile, and it might not be easy… but I will keep going at it. I mean, why NOT? I’d my dream and I’m going to follow it. Thanks to Elvis and Richard for their positive, loving attitudes. To Elvis Presley: Thank you for being a wonderful inspiration to me. I look up to you and I appreciate the amazing things you say. You have impacted my life in ways that are unthinkable. I love you! To Little Richard: The joy you bring into my life is everything I need. You help me try harder and be myself. I feel confident and proud of myself because of your encouraging words. I love you!
Sorry for the really late reply, I don’t go on Tumblr much. And hhhhmmm, what/who do you like!? :)
Lol, celebrities, that’s all. But I really, truly, only like older celebrities. I don’t know why.
