Priscilla Presley thinks The Simpsons should be banned

Priscilla Presley, 67, is not a fan of The Simpsons, because she believes its content does not promote good morals. When asked what she would do if she was 'Queen of Everything' in an interview with Stylist magazine, she said: "I'd have to ban 'The Simpsons'. It's not good for people's moral compass. It's OK for adults as we can put it all together but it's not good for kids and I think we need to bring back something more family orientated like 'Leave It To Beaver' that I used to watch when I was growing up." Priscilla - who is playing the Wicked Queen in pantomime Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in London this month - is also concerned about the amount of children being raised by divorced parents. She divorced late rock 'n' roll legend Elvis Presley in 1973 after six years of marriage but believes kids with parents and step-parents are getting mixed moral messages. Priscilla explained: "We're in trouble. Churches are going, religious leaders are being attacked. I do think we need guidance because we're in trouble right now for not having any. It's the same with parents. When we're growing up it's our parents who we look to to give us guidance, the morals, the ethics, the standards. I find that because kids are being raised by multiple parents with the divorce rate as high as it is, everyone is thinking differently." Priscilla's daughter Lisa Marie Presley - her only child with Elvis - has been divorced three times after marriages to Danny Keough, Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage all failed. Lisa Marie now lives in East Sussex, England with her fourth husband, guitarist Michael Lockwood, their four-year-old twin girls Harper and Finley and Lisa's two children.
