People Are So Mad At Rihanna For Hiring Johnny Depp For Her Fenty Show, Why On Earth Did She Do It?!

Published

Rihanna‘s fans have been waiting patiently for her Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 4 feature-length fashion film to debut; and it was definitely worth the wait! As well as being wowed by the seductive, provocative pieces that were finally unveiled in the film on Amazon Prime Video on November 9th, fans seemed to have a lot of questions about one particular part of the show. And that, in case it wasn’t already obvious, was the inclusion of a certain Mr Johnny Depp!

Johnny Depp’s Appearance In Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty Vol. 4 Show

The 59-year-old Pirates of the Caribbeanactor has made history by becoming the first male to headline the fashion show’s ‘star moment,’ which in previous years was an honor given to Cindy Crawford and Erykah Badu.

Depp can be seen walking through a set which has been transformed into a forest to the tune of Outkast‘s 2001 hit single “So Fresh And So Clean” wearing olive green pants and a matching loose-fitting jacket, which is worn open to reveal a plunging patterned vest top, and layers of necklaces of varying lengths. His hair is tied back in a ponytail, with the front section worn loose to frame his face, which also has a goatee, and at one point, he can be seen hugging a tree, while multiple performers are dancing around him.

Why Did Rihanna Put Johnny Depp In Her Savage X Fenty Vol. 4 Show?

We already know that the 34-year-old mom-of-one likes to cause a stir. Anyone who remembers her New York City pregnancy announcement that will go down in history knows that Rihanna isn’t shy when it comes to getting people talking, so it was certainly mission accomplished when she chose to cast the Sweeney Todd actor, who has been causing his own stir  following his highly-publicized legal battle with ex-wife Amber Heard, on social media.

Many fans have wondered why the “Disturbia” songstress chose the Edward Scissorhands actor, with some believing that she is helping him rebuild his image as a good friend, while others have actually slammed her. Although Depp won his lawsuit against his ex-wife, who accused him of abuse in a 2018 op-ed, fans still aren’t convinced that he was completely innocent throughout their relationship, which is why they have criticized the “Diamonds” singer, who herself is a victim of abuse following an incident with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown in 2009, for including him in the show.

Fans Criticize Rihanna For Featuring Johnny Depp”Remove your ugly man from the show,” said one angry fan. “You included Johnny Depp, no money from me anymore,” one fan confirmed. “Rihanna can’t be serious? With all these beautiful and unproblematic men in Hollywood, and Johnny Depp is the one that appeals to you the most?” asked another. “Rihanna inviting Johnny Depp to her show is so, so [expletive] weird. Not a single billionaire on this planet with decency and she’s keeping up the trend sadly,” another wrote.

Others fans, on the other hand, applauded Rihanna’s decision to feature the Dark Shadows actor, as they believed that *he* was in fact, the survivor of abuse. “I’ve never wanted to be a tree so bad in my [expletive] life,” one fan joked. “He survived and is thriving,” said another. “He is so handsome,” wrote another fan. “So glad he’s been given this opportunity. He deserves it all,” they added, followed by a red heart emoji.

“Whatever he’s selling I’m buying,” commented another, followed by a kissing emoji. “I don’t get why people got mad at rih because she casted him, nothing is proved,” noted another. “So happy to see Johnny Depp in the show! He’s moving on with his life after being found NOT GUILTY of the charges that were leveled against him! This is as it should be! Well done! Moving forward!” exclaimed another.

What Has Rihanna Said About Savage X Fenty Vol. 4?

We are still waiting for the “We Found Love” hitmaker to directly address putting the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory actor in her show – but she *has* spoken about how this year’s show is her most “obnoxious” one yet, and “takes the cake” in comparison to previous shows. “This show is obnoxious,” she told People before the show premiered. “This one takes the cake. This is gonna be the show to beat. It is on a scale unlike anything we’ve ever done. It’s huge.”

“I’m looking forward to people seeing it,” the Fenty Beauty founder added. “It’s my first real thing that I’ve done since I had the baby, work-wise.” She went on to talk about her excitement of seeing “new bodies, new silhouettes, new personalities, new characters, new energies” in the show, adding: “I just enjoy seeing people celebrate their body, celebrate who they are – and they just happen to be wearing Savage. That’s exciting.”

Previous Savage X Fenty Controversy

This isn’t the first time one of Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty shows has been shrouded in controversy.

Using “Doom” By Coucou Chloe Which Featured A Sacred Islamic Text

In October 2020, the “Umbrella” singer came under fire for her use of the song “Doom” by artist Coucou Chloe, which featured lines from a sacred Muslim text known as a Hadith, which is part of a collection of texts believed to be the spoken words of the Prophet Muhammad. Chloe apologized for using the text in her song, saying she wasn’t aware that it contained the Islamic verses, as did Rihanna herself, who said using the song in her show was “irresponsible” and an “honest, yet careless mistake.”

Cultural Appropriation By Styling Her Models In Braids

In 2021, the Emmy-winning Savage X Fenty Volume. 3 show also got people talking for all the wrong reasons, as Rihanna’s models – from Emily Ratajkowski to Vanessa Hudgens – were accused of cultural appropriation for wearing their hair in braids. “Loving everything about this show except why are white women in braids??? Rihanna?? What’s good!? I need answers. #SAVAGEXFENTYSHOW” one fan wrote on Twitter at the time.

Chicago prosecutor drops sex abuse charges against R. Kelly

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx told reporters that her office believes “justice has been served” against Kelly, who has been convicted in federal court.

An Illinois prosecutor dropped 10 charges of sex abuse against the singer R. Kelly on Monday, saying the cost was one of the factors she weighed in her decision.

Kelly, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, is already serving a 30-year prison sentence on charges of federal racketeering and sex trafficking after he was convicted in New York last year.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx told reporters that her office believes “justice has been served” with the two convictions. She said her office’s “limited resources and court time” were the ultimate factors, noting that it found the accusations to be credible.

“Mr. Kelly is looking at the possibility of never walking out of prison again,” Foxx said.

Kelly is set to appear Tuesday in Cook County Court, where the charges will be formally dropped. The state has accused Kelly of sexually abusing four people, three of whom were minors.

Foxx announced the state’s case in 2019, saying the incidents occurred from May 1998 to January 2010. Kelly had faced three to seven years in prison for each charge if he were convicted.

The women in the case were identified in the indictment only by their initials. Multiple women have come forward with allegations over the years.

Lifetime aired a six-part docuseries, “Surviving R. Kelly,” in January 2019 in which multiple women alleged Kelly subjected them to mental, physical and sexual abuse. Foxx urged potential victims to come forward to speak with her office about possible criminal activity after the series.

Foxx said Monday that she consulted with the women in the indictment before she decided to drop the charges, acknowledging that some might be disappointed.

“I know firsthand how difficult it is for you to tell your stories,” Foxx said. “Four years ago, I stood at this podium and shared my story of having been a survivor and my full understanding of what it means to have to go before strangers to discuss what is arguably one of the most horrific experiences one could have. And these women, all of them Black, came forward, believing that they would be heard.”

Kelly also faces state charges in Minnesota, where he has been accused of soliciting a minor for sexual purposes and engaging in prostitution with a minor.

In the New York case, Kelly was convicted on nine counts of racketeering and sex trafficking. Jurors found that he set up a criminal enterprise that enabled him to recruit and transport underage girls for sex.

Months later in Chicago federal court, he was convicted on six counts of sexual exploitationand enticement of a minor. He is scheduled to be sentenced on those charges Feb. 23.

Kelly’s attorneys have said he plans to appeal both federal convictions.

50 GB Of Unreleased Michael Jackson Songs Stolen And Leaked

Published

By

Renowned music engineer Brad Sundberg’s laptop was stolen this week during a break at one of his “In The Studio With MJ” events in Brussels, leading to the leaks of several unreleased songs by the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

Sundberg’s laptop contained a significant amount of unreleased material by the iconic singer, predominately from the late 1980s and early 1990s. He would play them for fans who attended the events over the years.

The stolen songs, which were recorded during Michael’s “Bad” and “Dangerous” eras, have now surfaced on various online platforms, causing a frenzy among the fans. This is not the first time that unreleased material by Michael has been leaked, but under the circumstance of the theft, it’s certainly the most shocking and disappointing.

Fans have urged others to refrain from sharing or downloading the leaked songs, as they were not intended for public release and may contain unfinished versions of the tracks, as well as damage any plans for potential future releases.

We at MJWN are deeply saddened by the events. We hope those involved will be brought to justice. We will not be posting any links to the stolen material, nor naming the songs that have been leaked.

Michael’s Estate has yet to release a statement on the matter.
