Johnny Depp’s streak of bad luck seems to have finally ended as he marked his presence at this year’s MTV VMA awards as the moon person and popped in for a few one-liners during the awards show.
According to Variety, although the `Pirates of the Caribbean’ star was not at the VMAs in his physical form, his face appeared digitally in the helmet of a Moon Person floating above the stage.
"And you know what? I needed the work," Depp said during the beginning of the show.
"Hey VMAs, let's get back to the f--king music, shall we?" Depp said in another appearance after a commercial break, though his f-bomb was bleeped out for the broadcast.
Depp even posted a pre-recorded clip on his Instagram, and he said, "I just want you guys to know that I`m available for birthdays, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, weddings, wakes, any old thing you need."
Unfortunately, Depp did not have a nomination this year, and in the past, he has taken awards for best male performance, best villain, global superstar and the generation award, reported Variety.
Depp’s latest appearance by Depp comes a few months after his controversial and highly publicized defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard. Meanwhile, Depp has been attempting to restart his career in both film and music since the June verdict.
He joined Jeff Black for multiple live performances in July and later the duo released their joint 13-track album titled `18`. Most recently, it was announced that Depp is set to direct `Modigliani`, a biographical drama movie about Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani, as per Variety.
