Lily-Rose Depp offered a creative lens for her upcoming series, The Idol as fans continue to term it a s*xually tortured p*rn. Defending the bareness of her role as Jocelyn, the French-American actress recently expressed that Jocelyn is a born and bred performer. Nevertheless, most folks continue to rage against the controversial nature of the upcoming series.
Lily-Rose Depp Defends The Bareness Of Her Role as Jocelyn
As Sam Levinson’s upcoming series, The Idol, starring Lily-Rose Depp (daughter of Johnny Depp) and The Weeknd, continue to be termed as a “luxury sleaze” and “s*xually tortured p*rn”, Lily-Rose Depp came forward to defend the bareness of her character as Jocelyn.
Lily-Rose Depp said:
“Jocelyn is a born and bred performer – and I think that extends to every aspect of her life, not just her professional life. The way that she dresses, for example, is her trying to tell you something all the time… or express herself in some kind of way.
I also think that the occasional bareness of the character physically mirrors the bareness that we get to see emotionally in her.”
Sam Levinson, on the other hand, compared the upcoming series to his hit, Euphoria, and admitted that the “things that might be revolutionary are taken too far”. Abel Tesfay’s controversial, “proactive, and troubled” HBO series, The Idol premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2023.
Lily-Rose Depp’s Fans Clap Back At Haters
The upcoming series, The Idol, has been billed as a “darker, crazier and more risqué version” of Levinson’s hit series, Euphoria. Even though termed as the “sleaziest love story in all of Hollywood”, Levinson feels that Jocelyn is a “reflection of American culture— particularly the influence of p*rnography on the “psyche of young people.”
After Lily-Rose Depp’s comments, one Twitter user expressed, “This show is basically Br**zers but on HBO Max.” Here are some of the tweets wherein netizens attacked Lily-Rose Depp, also questioning her nepo baby status.

It’s so interesting that so many negative comments come from Swifties on their moral high horse. Their conservative views/expectations are exactly what their favorite singer railed against.
