Rock Royalty, No Royal Treatment

It’s good to be the king, but royal privileges only extend so far down the family tree. Instead of a princess, sometimes you’re just a lady in waiting—or, worse yet, fodder for the court jester.

Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, Riley Keough, was in town on May 28 to celebrate her 21st birthday. Her mom, Lisa Marie Presley, and grandmamma, Priscilla Presley, took her to Aria, where the group had dinner at Union, then decided to take the almost-but-not-quite-21-yet Keough to her first club. (Well, first nightclub as a legal adult, at least.)

They headed to Haze where, despite standing in the shadow of Viva Elvis, Keough’s I.D. still said her DOB was May 29. And unfortunately for the birthday girl, the club’s bouncers refused to let her into their venue before the clock struck midnight and said birthday had actually arrived.

Apparently (and, dare we say, impressively) being surrounded by Elvis merchandise and an heir to the throne doesn’t make a difference in the world of club security.

The next night, Keough kept her b-day party (and Light Group allegiance) going at The Bank inside Bellagio, where she toasted 21 with vodka in the VIP. Meanwhile, Lisa Marie and husband Michael Lockwood decamped for the cozier confines of Caramel. Keough didn’t seem to mind, though—but considering her mother is on her fourth husband (and two previous step-papas have been Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage), she probably doesn’t get too bogged down in the particulars of where her mother is or what she’s doing—as long as she’s not off marrying Gary Busey.

Everybody has an opinion on Dana White. Just bring up his name next time you are out on the town and see what happens. “Guy’s an idiot,” “ignorant loudmouth,” “super nice guy,” “one of the most real people in Vegas,” “totally down to earth” and the age-old classic, “asshole.” Those are just a few samples from people I encountered in the run-up to this interview, but one conclusion is clear: The jury is all over the place, except in the middle.
