Pop Star Prays to Elvis for Help

Robbie Williams, a British pop singer, spoke on BBC Radio in July 2001 about his previous addictions:

I haven't had a drink or done drugs for seven months, and I'm feeling good. I'm enjoying it. It's quite hardcore to get up in front of 60,000 people knowing that when you come off stage you're not going to get drunk…. [Instead of drinking I] pray. Not for long. I ask Elvis to look after me. I've got the tattoo on my arm: "Elvis grant me serenity." Before the gig we all get in a huddle and pray to Elvis to look after us while we're onstage.
