All About Johnny Depp’s Special Cameo As The “Moon Person” At The 2022 MTV VMAs

In his first major appearance after his fierce trial against Amber Heard, Johnny Depp ensured that he arrives in style. The 2022 MTV Video Music Awards (VMA), which took place on Sunday (Aug. 28) at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., on Sunday night, witnessed a surprise appearance by Johnny Depp as the “Moon Person”. Read on to know how Johnny was floating all over the star-studded event.

Dressed As The Show’s Mascot…

Johnny Depp is definitely coming back to life, and the same was evident from his magical “special appearance” at the 2022 MTV VMA Award ceremony on Sunday (Aug. 28) at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. In his first post-trial appearance, Depp showed up digitally seemingly floating over the Prudential Center arena. He was dressed as the show’s mascot–“The Moon Person”.

After a performance by Lizzo, Johnny Depp was seen falling down dressed as an astronaut from above the stage. Everyone was in absolute awe as they witnessed this magical moment of Johnny landing as the “Moon Person”. As the final performer was announced, a live graphic of Johnny’s face inside the helmet was revealed.

Not just this, but Johnny even sold his professional services while floating all over the ceremony venue. “And you know what? I needed the work,” Depp was heard saying. He made another cameo where he said, “Hey VMAs, let’s get back to the f***ing music, shall we?”

In a later segment, he offered his professional services and said, “I just want you guys to know that I’m available for birthdays, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, weddings, any ol’ thing you need… ANYTHING, you name it. “So, oh, I’m also a dentist,” he added after the commercial break.

Johnny Is Coming Back To Life…

Johnny Depp’s career has been on a downswing during his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard. From getting boycotted from Hollywood to losing big projects, the actor suffered way too much. But, thanks to his dedicated legal team, the truth was revealed and Depp won the $10.5 million trial against Amber. Since then, he has come out strong and is pulling back his life and career.

Now that Hollywood has opened back its door following his innocence, Johnny Depp has started to get big adverts and movies. But hey, while Hollywood kept their door closed during his toughest time, other international cinemas had much faith in Johnny. This month, it was announced that Johhny would set foot to direct his first film, Modigliani, which will be co-produced by Al Pacino. To be precise, Johnny is ensuring that he makes up for all those lost years.

FYI, Depp’s role as King Louis XV in French director Maïwenn’s Jeanne du Barry has already started its production in July. While Hollywood closed its doors on him, Johnny was gaining popularity in Europe as he nagged this French-language project. In 2021, despite losing a libel case to “The Sun”, Depp was felicitated with Lifetime Achievement Awards at the Karlovy Vary and San Sebastian film festivals.

Apart from Johnny’s “Moon Man” appearance, viewers got to see performances from legendary stars like Maneskin, Jack Harlow, Marshmallow x Khalid, Panic! and many more. Stars like Taylor Swift, RHCP, Nicki Minaj, Bad Bunny and Billie Eilish took away the top honours.

In addition to this, there was a collaboration between Eminem and Snoop Dogg which left the fans in absolute awe as the duo gave a multiverse performance of their song, From the D 2 the LBC.  But hey, what do you think about Johnny’s appearance as the “Moon Person”?
