Sheryl Lee Ralph Defends Johnny Depp’s Involvement in Rihanna’s ‘Savage X Fenty Show’: “It’s Doing Its Job”

Published

Ugh. Another one turns to the dark side. Abbott Elementary’s Sheryl Lee Ralph admitted that she knew about Johnny Depp’s involvement in Rihanna’s Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 4 in congruence with her own appearance. And not only that, she was pretty non-plussed about it, according to her statements on the matter.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Ralph dismissed the backlash surrounding the Pirates of the Caribbean actor’s controversial cameo. She said, “I was told [a] very long time ago, PR is a very interesting thing, and as long as they are talking about you, it’s doing its job.”

That begs the question: Damson Idris, Lilly Singh, Marsai Martin, Simu Liu, et al… Did you know about it as well?

Ahead of the fashion show’s Prime Video premiere on November 9, it was revealed that Depp would make a guest appearance in the popular program. The news arrived nearly six months after his polarizing defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard, who accused him of domestic violence. In response, the internet lit up, with many criticizing his involvement and threatening to cancel their subscriptions.

In our review, we dubbed his appearance as “painful” and poorly representative of the brand’s ethos, which promotes inclusivity and modern thinking — and we weren’t the only ones who thought so. Rolling Stone wrote that they “still don’t understand” Depp’s involvement, which The Independent called “barmy” and further stated that the joke “seems to be on us.”

While Ralph placed the blame on PR and the nature in which the internet rewards controversy, earlier in the interview, the actor refused to “spill tea” on her past experience being shut down by a design house.

The actor answered, “Why bother with negativity? The positive is that now, we have body positivity and people are more accepting of different shapes and bodies. I look at it this way — if my body is vulgar, so is Kim Kardashian, so is Beyonce, and so are many others who have curves and the ins and the outs.”

Looks like Ralph is too busy nabbing Emmy Awards with her role as Barbara Howard on the hit ABC mockumentary to be concerned about how her actions may affect others and the nuance of “negativity.” While some may say “all press is good press,” let us look at where that got the drama-filled release of Don’t Worry Darling: a premature blow in its box office performance and an expedited release on HBO Max.

Savage X Fenty Show Vol. 4 is currently streaming on Prime Video.

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.

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

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.

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.”
