Diamond In The Rough: Johnny Depp Performs With The Black Keys At MTV Movie Awards

Tonight’s MTV Movie Awards show has thus far been difficult to watch. The show portrays a totally backwards world — one where Charlie Sheen and Paris Hilton are somehow relevant again, but Ryan Gosling‘s performance in Drive is passé; where Russell Brand is considered “edgy”; and where vomitous “musicians” LMFAO can win awards.

Amongst all the faux-comedy, awkward award presentations, and excuses to air commercials for Axe body spray and the next season of Teen Moms, there lay a diamond in the rough: Johnny Depp performed with bluesy garage-rock stalwarts The Black Keys.

Johnny Depp To Receive MTV Generation Award At MTV Movie Awards

For nearly four decades now, Johnny Depp has been the definition of Hollywood cool, bringing his own iconic style to life on the small screen (in “21 Jump Street), in cult faves like “Ed Wood” and “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” and in big-screen smashes like “Sleepy Hollow,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and, of course, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise.

So, in recognition of his achievements — and all that classic cool — Depp will be honored with the MTV Generation award at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards, broadcasting live on Sunday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT from the Gibson Amphitheatre in Universal City, California.


CFDA Awards 2012: Fashion Industry Fete to be Broadcast for the First Time

The Council of Fashion Designers annual CFDA Awards will be broadcast, in its entirety, for the first time in history on June 5.

Whoop-de-do, right? Well, yes, it really is a big whoop. This is the 50th anniversary of the awards, Johnny Depp is getting the first Fashion Icon award given to a male and Saturday Night Live head writer and Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers will be hosting.

But don’t rush to set your DVRs. The show will air on Style.com, one day after the June 4 event at Lincoln Center. Until this year, the show was closed to TV cameras and the news was reported afterwards with only short video clips available online.

Steven Kolb, CEO of the CFDA says, “We are thrilled to be able to share American fashion’s biggest night with the public for the first time and to be working with Style.com on this incredible project. This is an amazing opportunity to expand our audience as we open this exclusive industry event to fashion lovers around the world.”

THR predicts that, just like the Met Museum’s Costume Institute Gala, live streamed this year on the Met’s website, there will be gobs of celebrities wearing gorgeous designer ensembles at the big event and on the red carpet.

Last year Lady Gaga was the big draw. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen were on hand, and so were Kanye West, Kristen Dunst, Gerard Butler, Sofia Coppola, Ashley Greene, Jessica Alba, Kathy Griffin, L’Wren Scott, Anderson Cooper, LA’s own fashion star Cameron Silver, Naomi Watts, Kerry Washington, Tory Burch, Rachey Roy, Joy Bryant and Marcia Cross.

Fash Track’s old pal Tim Blanks (we were in the New York and Paris Fashion Week trenches for a decade) will be the anchor for the carpet arrivals. Lexus and Swarovski are sponsors of the broadcast and the awards.

We just can’t wait to see what Johnny Depp, now an official member of the Comanche nation, will wear to win his prize — and what Meyers will say about his outfit.

Fashion Icon Award

As ironical it may sound, the CFDAs (Grammys of fashion) plan to honor Johnny’s – as he calls it – “no style-style” with this year’s “fashion icon award” for his “eccentric legacy of ‘wacky hats’ and ‘watch chains'”. 

Johnny is the first guy to receive this award, but who else if not Johnny, who looks hot even in a potato sack, should get it?

The awards show will be held June 4th at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall and hosted by Seth Meyers.

Gore Verbinski’s speech:
“Thank you so much, this is crazy. Someone asked me if this film was for kids and, I don’t know, but it was certainly created by a bunch of grownups acting like children and we just had the best time. I want to thank the real-world chameleon, Mr. Johnny Depp, and the entire cast for coming out and playing. To the artists, “Crash” McCreery, Jim Byrkit, Hal Hickel, Tim Alexander, John Knoll, everybody at BlindWink and ILM who put so much passion into every frame, and to the early believers: John Logan, Graham King, Brad Grey, and everyone at Paramount who really let us try something different. And to my beautiful wife and my family who inspire me every day with their smiles and laughter. It doesn’t get any better than this, thank you.”
