Johnny Depp has just been announced as ‘guest of honour’ at Glastonbury, and people aren’t happy
I’d rather have an Oasis reunion but cool guess we get this guy
Usually surprise acts at Glastonbury are one of the best parts of the weekend, the cherry on top of an uber-expensive weekend of debauchery, music and mud. And today that was partially true, when the festival announced that Liam Gallagher would be playing a surprise Saturday set on the Other Stage.
Oh but they added that Johnny Depp would be there as a “guest of honour”. Remember Johnny Depp? He was in all those pirate films, he played Edward Scissorhands. He used to be married to Amber Heard. You may remember her from these pictures.

Anyway Johnny Depp will appear at the site’s new drive-in movie area Cineramageddon introducing his personal choice of films followed by a discussion with the area’s curator Julien Temple. Neat!
Ugh why is noted scumbag Johnny Depp the "guest of honour" at Glastonbury's Cineramageddon?

Last year Glastonbury launched their first women-only space and this year they booked actual domestic abuser Johnny Depp. SMH. pic.twitter.com/6dJMy9NS9Z

Really disappointed with Glastonbury for booking Johnny Depp. Like information + news articles about him abusing his wife weren't Everywhere https://t.co/x3LFfsGUHs

The news comes one year after Glastonbury announced their first “female only” space, and illustrates how quickly and readily we’re willing to forget any murkiness in a celebrity’s past, just to think of them at their shiniest, uncontroversial best.
It’s important to remember that Depp’s domestic abuse allegations and divorce case were settled with Amber Heard out of court, with their lawyers calling the relationship “passionate and volatile”. Since then though, the impact of the shocking pictures of Heard’s bruised face haven’t really done much to hinder Depp’s continued success. The announcement of him as Glasto “guest of honour” adds him to a long list of celebrities – including Chris Brown, Casey Affleck and Donald Trump – whose careers have remained totally untouched despite allegations of abuse and harassment of women.
As much as I wish he wasn't, Johnny Depp is still Johnny movie star pirates guy Depp, and that is who Glastonbury have booked.

Call me silly, but I’m not sure inviting Johnny Depp as a ‘guest of honour’ at Glastonbury is necessarily going to go down especially well.

Honestly, if you’re going to Glastonbury to watch films introduced by Johnny Depp rather than doing literally anything else available to you at the festival, you’re doing something wrong. Give it a miss, you can go get your tarots read in Healing Fields instead.
The most popular Instagram posts of 2018 were kind of terrible (and like 60 percent Stormi)

The holidays are great because you get to eat as much as you want, binge drink in front of your parents, and flex on all your old high school acquaintances. But they're also great because they encourage us — in our eggnog induced stupors — to message risky things to all the people we definitely…
It’s official! Every single character on Riverdale sucks except for Betty
Betty FINALLY snapped

So with Riverdale Season 3 Episode 7, there’s good news and there’s bad news. The good news is that I’m starting to think that the Riverdale writers are actually reading my recaps, or at least spending a lot of time scouring r/riverdale, because they FINALLY decided to stop jumping around madly from one disjointed plotline…
