Johnny Depp is set to ruffle feathers at the ‘woke’ BRIT Awards after he was nominated THREE times – amid fears ‘female artists will refuse to share the stage’ after Amber Heard legal battle

This could set the cat among the pigeons at the increasingly ‘wokeBrit Awards.

I hear that Hollywood star Johnny Depp, scourge of feminists since his sordid court case with ex-wife Amber Heard featured claims of domestic abuse, has made the long list for not one, not two, but three music prizes, thanks to his collaboration with veteran English guitarist Jeff Beck.

‘Depp would liven up an increasingly dull event, but the Amber Heard case means female artists would probably refuse to share the stage,’ an insider tells me.

On the big stage: Johnny Depp, scourge of feminists since his sordid court case with ex-wife Amber Heard featured claims of domestic abuse, is up for three Brit Awards with Jeff Beck (pictured together in Helsinki in June)

In June, Depp, 56, was awarded $10.35million in a verdict delivered after his legal team successfully argued that Heard’s Washington Post op-ed, in which she accused her ex-husband of domestic abuse, was defamatory.

Heard did not name Depp publicly in the piece but given their status and notoriety, it was evident who she was referencing in regard to her history of being allegedly abused.

During the defamation trial, supermodel Kate Moss took to the stand to defend her ex-boyfriend, who she dated from 1994 to 1998.

She delivered a sensational blow to his ex-wife by squashing the actress’s claim that Depp once pushed his supermodel ex down a flight of stairs.

Female artists: But the insider added… ‘but the Amber Heard case means female artists would probably refuse to share the stage’

During her testimony, Heard referred to having heard allegations that Depp had once shoved Moss down a flight of stairs but Moss insisted that the actor actually helped her after she accidentally slipped.

Heard made the claim while discussing an argument that she allegedly had with Depp at the top of a staircase, when she said her sister, Whitney Heard, stepped in between them.

Heard told the court: ‘She threw herself in the line of fire. She was trying to get Johnny to stop. Her back was to the staircase, and Johnny swings at her. I don’t hesitate and wait – I instantly think of Kate Moss and stairs. And I swung at him.’

Moss said during her testimony that Depp never ‘pushed her or threw her down any stairs,’ in fact, she said that he tended to her after she tripped during a trip they took to Jamaica together.

Johnny’s potential inclusion at the ceremony, at the O2 Arena in London in February, would send shivers down the spines of executives at ITV, which is screening the event.

The broadcaster has become more politically correct under chief executive Carolyn McCall, former boss of The Guardian newspaper, who has presided over the departure of stars including Piers Morgan and Eamonn Holmes. Morgan left the channel after refusing to apologise for calling the Duchess of Sussex a liar.

Bitter split: Depp and Heard were married for just 15 tumultuous months before they called it quits in 2016. The internal drama of their Hollywood affair was put on full display during a weeks-long trial in June

At this year’s ceremony, the organisers abolished gender categories, such as Best Male Artist and Best Female Artist, ‘to be as inclusive and as relevant as possible’.

Pop singer Sam Smith, who identifies as gender neutral, had previously said: ‘Music for me has always been about unification not division. I look forward to a time where awards shows can be reflective of the society we live in.’

Depp, 59, has made the long list for three categories, as a result of his album, 18, with former Yardbirds star Beck, 78. They are: album of the year; best group; and alternative/rock act.

While the Brit awards was once known for debauched behaviour such as then Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott having iced water poured over him by the band Chumbawamba, this year’s ceremony was dismissed as a ‘snoozefest’ hosted by comedian Mo Gilligan.

Johnny Depp got his launch in Wes Craven’s classic slasher Agony On Elm Street, but unfortunately observers missed out on his New Agony return.

While Johnny Depp was willing to duplication his part for a Agony On Elm Street effect, unfortunately, observers missed out on this gem due to an doubtful issue.

As a director, Wes Craven was noway short of whim-whams. The horror legend made his mark in the kidney with Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes, a brace of bleak, unstinting 70s exploitation pictures that hid sharp social commentary under a lot of tense set- pieces, horrible spear, and hopelessly dark plot twists.

Over the decades, Craven continued to review the horror kidney with ballot- spawning slasher masterpieces like Scream and Agony On Elm Street as well as further outré chow similar as The Serpent and the Rainbow and My Soul to Take. still, Craven’s unerring whim-whams was shaken at one unanticipated point in his outstanding career.

Luckily, this did n’t deprive observers of a horror classic. still, Craven’s query did mean that horror suckers missed out on a potentially memorable scene that noway made it into the Agony On Elm Street series despite the director’s ambitious plans.

Jenna Ortega’s Biggest Regret? Wednesday Scene Fans Can’t Stop Talking About

Published

Despite the ultimate fan love she received for the viral Wednesday dance, the actress seems to think she could have done better.

Quickly becoming one of Netflix‘s biggest hits ever, Wednesday is marching through Twitter threads, TikTok videos, and Instagram reels and garnering views and likes months after the premiere. All of this thanks to the show’s most popular scene — the Wednesday dance to The Cramps’ Goo Goo Muck at the school disco at Nevermore.

However, speaking with Entertainment Tonightat the Golden Globes ceremony, the show’s main star Jenna Ortega revealed that she isn’t fully satisfied with the final result.

“There was so much I could have done and should have done. So, the fact that anyone has shown any appreciation or even tried it themselves is unfathomable to me,” the actress said, commenting on the Wednesday dance’s viral popularity.

Ortega choreographed the dance herself, somehow managing to combine improvisation and old goth moves. Besides, she also revealed that she had to film the scene while having coronavirus — something that the actress and the production were heavily criticized for.

Still, despite Ortega’s apparent regrets, the dance scene is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Netflix’s Wednesday. This all started with a TikTok edit that popularized the dance, but with a high-pitched remix of Lady Gaga‘s Bloody Mary instead of the original soundtrack.

Now, Netflix has greenlit Wednesday for a second season — and even used Bloody Mary to promote the upcoming sequel, apparently nodding to the viral song choice. The premiere date for Wednesday season 2 is yet to be announced.

After the enormous success of ‘Wednesday’, everybody wants to know everything about its star Jenna Ortega.The 20-year-old actress has increased her popularity, and with that, it usually comes curiosity about her personal life, especially if she is dating anyone.

In the series, Ortega’s character is in the middle of a love-triangle between Tyler and Xavier, and fans also wish to see a relationship between Wednesday and Enid. However, while Ortega has grown up in the public eye, she has been very protective of her personal life.

As she is set to appear in a romantic comedy with her co-star Percy Hynes White, who recently has been accused by several women of abuse on Twitter (neither the actor or Netflix has addressed them so far), many wonder if they’re romantically involved. Check out what we know.

Does Jenna Ortega have a boyfriend?

As far as we know, Ortega isn’t dating anyone at the moment. However, fans have speculated that Ortega and Hyne White could be an item because she invited him as her date for the Golden Globes. However, anything is confirmed and they can just be friends.

On the other hand, per Netflix Life, J-14 magazine reported that Ortega left the Globes after-party with ‘The Fabelmans’ star Gabriel LaBelle. Certainly, that doesn’t mean anything either but it’s another rumor that is around.

Also, as we said before, Ortega has always been private about her love life. In the past, she has been linked with actor Asher Angel and singer Jacob Sartorius. But, per Capital FM, Ortega denied that she dated any of the guys she has been linked to online during a podcast appearance in 2019.

Per the source, when asked what the craziest thing she ever heard about herself was, she said: “Probably relationships. According to the internet, I dated like six guys, [but I] dated none of them.”
