2. Lisa Marie Presley

Yup, that surname really does belong to the one and only King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley. Lisa Marie was born on February 1, 1968, in Memphis, Tennessee, and her parents were none other than Elvis Presley and his wife Priscilla.

The two split in 1972 and Lisa went on to live with her mother in Los Angeles, although she continued to see her father, evenly splitting time between LA and Memphis. When Elvis died of an apparent heart failure caused by prescription drug abuse, Lisa Marie moved in with her mother for good.

After going through a string of failed relationships, she turned to music as her comfort, releasing her first album To Whom It May Concern on April 8, 2003, which received moderate success, debuting at No. 5 on the Billboard chart and being certified gold in June 2003. Her second album Now What was released in 2005 and was certified gold the same year.
