On January 12, news broke that Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of music legend Elvis Presley, had died at the age of 54. Her mother, Priscilla Presley, confirmed Lisa's death a few hours after she was rushed to the hospital for cardiac arrest.

Shortly after, Lisa Marie's family released an official statement to the media. "It is with a heavy heart that I must share the devastating news that my beautiful daughter Lisa Marie has left us," it read, per People. "She was the most passionate strong and loving woman I have ever known. We ask for privacy as we try to deal with this profound loss. Thank you for the love and prayers. At this time there will be no further comment."

As celebrities flooded social media mourning the loss of Lisa Marie, a clip that was filmed two days prior started going viral. The snippet featured the late singer attending the 2023 Golden Globes for the 2022 biopic Elvis and she was honored by lead actor Austin Butler when he accepted the award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama.
