Johnny Depp will be among the celebrities who will take part in the next parade of Savage X Fenty, Rihanna’s underwear company. For years, the Barbadian singer has hosted parades filled with celebrity cameos on Prime Video. This year the Spectacle It will be released on November 9 on the Amazon platform, but some of the surprises it will bring have already been revealed, including that Depp “sWe will become the first man to take on the role of a top ‘star’ as a model for the brand’s men’s collection,” according to Guardian. The fashion magazine WWD confirms that Depp will serve as a model for Rihanna and explains that the actor has already recorded his cameo in this show, titled Savage X Fenty Volume 4. To add WWD that Depp will have “a stellar performance, similar to Cindy Crawford’s appearance in Savage X Fenty Volume 3 in 2021″.
The TMZ celebrity portal was the first to announce this collaboration between Depp and Rihanna, which has already been confirmed by the actor’s entourage. This year, Depp starred in a media trial With his ex-wife, also actress Amber Heard. Last spring, the seven-member popular jury hearing the case ruled that Heard defamed her ex-husband in the article she published in Washington Post posing as a victim of abuse. The jury agreed that Depp had also defamed her in one of three statements tried, made by her attorney, and the conviction was that Heard should pay Depp $15 million and he should pay $2 million. The actor celebrated the pain and his appearances since then have continued to follow one another: last August, he appeared disguised as an astronaut at the MTV Video Music Awards gala and is preparing his return to the screens with the film Jeanne du Barry, in which he will play the King of France Louis XV.
The reactions on social networks to the choice of the actor as a guest star in the parade of Rihanna were not long in coming. Producer and activist Drew Dixon, for example, criticized Rihanna’s criteria on Twitter:Johnny Depp has been hailed as a hero by deranged right-wing misogynist extremists, and now he’s been asked to appear on the Spectacle by @SavageXFenty. I never expected such a powerful woman to succumb to this #MeToo pushback. Really disappointing.” Depp isn’t the only celebrity to take part in the parade, which will also feature performances from Annita, Burna Boy, Don Toliver and Maxwell.
