Elvis Presley’s memory continues to live on long after his sudden death and now fans have another part of his legacy to look forward to: his seventeen-year old grandson just scored a five million dollar deal to record five albums.
Benjamin, the son of Elvis’ daughter Lisa Marie and musician Danny Keough, was offered the deal by Universal and has already begun recording. While he will be jumping into the family business, his style will differ from his famous grandfather’s.
“The music will be nothing like Elvis, nothing like him at all,” the teen reportedly said at the Inspiration Awards for Women at Cadogan Hall in Belgravia. Despite his pedigree, his rep insists he’s just a normal teen.
“He’s a typical 17-year old,” the spokesperson said. “He doesn’t get up before midday and then grunts at you.”
