Singer LISA MARIE PRESLEY saw "things I couldn't do anything about" during her 20-month marriage to Michael Jackson.

Presley reveals she had concerns about troubled singer Jackson's lifestyle in an interview with Australian TV interviewer ANDREW DENTON on his ENOUGH ROPE talk show, to be broadcast on the AUSTRALIAN BROADCASTING CORP. (ABC) channel tomorrow (15MAR04).

Presley, daughter of late music legend Elvis Presley, and Jackson shocked the world when they tied the knot in the Dominican Republic in May 1994. Presley went on to file for divorce in January 1996, citing "irreconcilable differences".

In the interview to promote her singing career in Australia, Presley says she felt "powerless in a lot of ways, in terms of realising that I was part of a machine, and seeing things going on that I couldn't do anything about.

"And don't ask me what sort of things, because I'm not going to answer. But just stuff."

When asked by Denton if it was difficult to be in a marriage where she felt powerless, Presley replies, "It was, that's why I left."

Referring to how she feels about Jackson now, Presley explains, "It's really bizarre, I feel nothing."

Presley's second husband Jackson is currently awaiting trial in California to fight charges of performing lewd or lascivious acts on a child under 14 and administering an intoxicating agent.
