Pink to Bury Elvis in Her Backyard

Posted By on Sat, Jan 20, 2007 at 4:00 AM

From the WTF??? file: Pop singer Pink is building a miniature version of Elvis Presley’s Graceland to bury her dead dog in.

According to, The singer was left devastated this week when she returned home to her Los Angeles mansion to find her beloved bulldog Elvis had drowned in her swimming pool.

Pink named the pooch after Elvis because he was given to her as a gift by Elvis’ daughter Lisa-Marie. The two have now decided to give the dog a funeral fit for The King.

In addition to building a replica of Graceland to use as a crypt for the dog, Pink has also hired a 70-piece orchestra to play a selection of Elvis’ classic hits on the day of the funeral.

The pet will reportedly be pulled to his final resting place on a mini-carriage by four canine pallbearers and the 27-year-old singer is even planning to erect a huge marble statue of her deceased pet in her garden as a memorial to him.

Good Lord. People, people, please... Pay attention: This is God's way of telling you you have too damn much money. Go bowling or something.
