Deciphering Johnny Depp’s Instagram

Culture / April 19, 2020

I am so happy as Johnny Depp is finally on Instagram! I’m a huge fan of this actor. It started when he first broke into the scene (Oh, no, my age is showing!) You can bet that I’ve watched most of his films, Edward Scissorhands being my all-time favorite.

So when I found his verified Instagram, I’ve dissected what it tells about his life. I have made certain discoveries.

#1 He’s as hard-working as we expect him to be.

Johnny’s first post is a sneak peek into his latest project. I admire how this guy always has a purpose.

#2 He cares about us

Knowing we are probably losing our minds so he’s given us an 8-minute video to help us get through isolation.

#3 He’s multi-talented..duh

To further comfort us, he dropped his collaboration with Jeff Beck, a take on John Lennon’s “Isolation.” You can bet this is all I will be listening to today.

#4 Cool kids only

You shouldn’t be surprised that I looked through all the 97 people he is following. I believe it’s reflective of his taste in music: He’s following Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Aerosmith, Bob Dylan, Marilyn Manson, Alice Cooper, and Willie Nelson. Wouldn’t make that a cool playlist? Patti Smith commented on one of his posts:

On the fashion and beauty end, of course, he follows Dior, being the face of Dior Sauvage. He also clicked “Follow” on Stella McCartney. His supermodel friends include ex-flame Vanessa Paradis, Helena Christensen, Naomi Campbell, and his daughter Lily Rose-Depp.

I also found it interesting he follows Dr. Barbara Sturm. Something new to try out skincare wise! (Yes, Johnny Depp, can influence me when it comes to serums and face masks too.)

#5 The A++ list

In the almost three days that Johnny’s Instagram has been active, he already got 3.1 million followers. His second post earned 4.4 million views while his comments average 60,000. I have to say that Johnny’s engagement and reach is more than impressive. The world has been waiting for this Instagram account and Johnny didn’t disappoint.
