Welp. Rihanna’s only been a billionaire for a little over a year, and she’s already turned to the dark side. I guess since Kanye West is out of the way, Rihanna decided it was her turn to court unnecessary controversy by introducing some dark-sided shit at her upcoming Savage X Fenty Vol. 4 fashion show. According to TMZ, Rihanna will counter Kanye’s White Lives Matters shirts by featuring a “wife-beater” (per The Sun, don’t look at me!), Johnny Depp, to be the very first celebrity “wife-beater” (again, this is a settled point of law, don’t @ at me either!) to “grease” her stage. Ok, “grease” was all me. This brings the total of Billionaires We Can Tolerate back down to one. So congratulations once again to Mackenzie Scott. It must be lonely at the top.
Johnny will not be walking the runway at the show, but instead will “make a guest appearance,” as he did at the MTV Music Video Awards, and will be “wearing items from the men’s collection.” And he will be the first male celebrity to have done so. The Savage X Fenty show will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on November 9, and Johnny’s reportedly already filmed his part. Here’s the trailer for the show:
Until recently, Rihanna’s cultivated a vibe that’s sexy, cool, unbothered, and high as a kite. So at least one of those aesthetics will remain intact as Johnny, I don’t know, appears on screen dressed as a giant blunt/turd of undetermined origin. TMZ reports:
Johnny Depp is a wanted man in just about every lane Hollywood has to offer these days, and he’s about to make a guest appearance in a huge show — orchestrated by Rihanna!
No, Depp won’t be shredding his guitar with RiRi at the Super Bowl … but production sources tell us he’ll be a featured surprise guest in her Savage X Fenty Vol. 4 fashion show.
Our sources say Rihanna and her team invited Johnny to be a part of it, and both sides were super excited to make it happen. We’re told Johnny has already filmed his part, and it’ll be included in the show’s premiere on Amazon Prime Video November 9.
As for how Depp will look, we’re told the vibe is “cool and chic” and works for all aspects of Johnny’s artistry — music, modeling and acting.
Sure. After smelly, ghoulish, waxen, tragic, slovenly, and possibly undead; “cool” and “chic” are indisputably other adjectives. Here’s who Rihanna’s letting get into her Fenties these days.
Between getting into bed with Johnny Depp and the NFL by deciding to headline the Super Bowl Half Time Show, Rhianna can now count “irreversible traumatic brain injury” as a major component of her personal brand.
