Johnny Depp Slams Actors Who Pursue Music Careers: It's 'Sickening'

Johnny Depp doesn’t like it when actors use their fame to pursue music careers!

“That whole idea for me is a sickening thing, it’s always just made me sick,” the 51-year-old actor said to the Sydney Morning Herald.

“I’ve been very lucky to play on friends’ records and it’s still going,” Johnny said. Johnny is a guitarist and has often been seen playing on stage with pals Oasis, Iggy Pop, Marilyn Manson, and more. He also just finished the movie musical Into the Woods, which featured him singing.

“Music is still part of my life… But you won’t be hearing The Johnny Depp Band. That won’t ever exist. The kind of luxury now is, anybody with a certain amount of of success, if you have a kind of musical being, you can go out and start a band and capitalize on your work in other areas,” Johnny added.

“But I hate the idea, ‘Come see me play the guitar because you’ve seen me in 12 movies.’ It shouldn’t be [that way]. You want the people who are listening to the music to only be interested in the music,” he concluded.
