I don't usually follow celebrity gossip, but I saw this headline on MSN and followed the link.
Scientology Shuffle Nicole Kidman and Lisa Marie differ on the church by BeatBoxBetty
According to Mrs. John Travolta, Oscar-winning actress Nicole Kidman has distanced herself not only from the Church of Scientology, but from people involved in the organization as well. Kelly Preston -- a devout Scientologist like her hubby John -- claims that Kidman used to love being involved. "Actually when I knew Nicole she seemed to think there was nothing better than Scientology," Preston told World Entertainment News. "She was, like, 'This is the greatest thing ever.'" But according to Kelly, since Kidman's split from Tom Cruise in 2001, she's also cut ties from friends who are still active. "Well, I haven't seen her for a long, long time," she adds. "I see Tom, but not her as much."
One celeb who doesn't look like she's cutting the strings that bind anytime soon is Lisa Marie Presley. In her first album release To Whom It May Concern, one tune preaches the Scientology cause to stop parents from giving their children drugs like Ritalin. In a diatribe against psychiatry in general Presley sings, "I'm sorry, children, you don't have the choice/Your parents gave you something way back/When there's nothing wrong with you it's easier/To give you this then you won't embarrass them/When there's something wrong take an antidepressant/You can even choose which kind you want by the latest suicide/You know you're sorry 'cause you let them down..." OK, so she's no John Lennon or Joni Mitchell -- but she's got guts.
