Almost a year after Johnny Depp’s messy defamation trial against Amber Heard ended with a jury mostly ruling in his favor, Johnny’s scored a record-breaking deal with Dior for $20 million. That’s money well spent because who doesn’t look at current-day Johnny Depp and say, “I want to smell how he looks!”
Travis Scott has once again found himself on the receiving end of a “Don’t call us, we’ll…maybe call you after all this blows over” situation. Iconic fashion house Dior had been collaborating on a project with Travis’ Cactus Jack brand, which likely would have spelled $$$ for both of them upon its release. But, we don’t know if that collaboration will ever see the light of day. At the very least, we won’t see it any time soon, because Dior has made the announcement that they’ve suspended the project in the wake of the Astroworld Music Fest tragedy.
Well, this is nothing short of an act of aggression. From an olfactory perspective, Johnny Depp conjures up the struggle-fumes of lost court cases, vintage pellets of parrot excrement and the gang bang snout assault of a billion rapidly multiplying microbes incubating in the sweat-soaked folds of his mummified scarf installation. But even though he lost his libel case against The Sun, which caused Warner Bros. to force him to drop out of the Fantastic Beasts movies, he’s still got a job with Dior.
Poor Johnny Depp. All he wanted to do was cash an easy check from Dior by appearing in a new Native American-themed ad campaign for their perfume, Sauvage, and go back to marinating in his own personal stink (top notes of hair grease and cigarettes, finished with base notes of red wine and balls). Sadly, that was not the case for Johnny. Because the commercial came out, and many people – including the Native American community – had a real problem with it. So Dior pulled the ad amid much criticism. And now Johnny is leaping to the defense of Dior, who he claims was only trying to make nothing but the most respectful of Native American-themed perfume commercials.
Dior’s got a new ad campaign for their perfume Sauvage and it features American indigenous imagery. My first impressions of the poster is that it’s just Johnny Depp (who, by the way, has claimed he is Native American but is not Native American) looking unwashed in a serape. That’s funny because Dior thought Johnny’s usual weekend lewk was going to sell their scents. But then they had to go and add some dopey mess into their Twitter teaser copy that referenced Native Americans and the video sounds like a cringey shit show that’s being about as well-received as American Imperialism.
Charlize Theron’s stock continues to plummet. She was such a hot piece! I don’t mean her looks. I mean she had a past, she beat up Teri Hatcher, she had Meryl Streep taking several seats after what she pulled off in Monster, and, well, Young Adult. She even threw shade at a Sister, Sister and that’s just funny. But Sean Penn. And then she compared gossip about her to rape. And now this interview…
And then for some reason our society just wants to go…it’s like a dead flower. [She pulls a flower from a vase.] It’s like we wilt for some reason.
Yeah, it’s that bad. She used props.
