The Idol Premiere Reports From Cannes 2023 Are Disgusting (Exclusive)

The Idol Trailer: Lily-Rose Depp As An Aspiring Pop Idol

Lily-Rose Depp’s Bold Journey in Sam Levinson’s HBO Series Redefines the Intersection of Sexuality, Art, and Industry

The HBO show “The Idol,” created by Sam Levinson, premiered at the 76th Cannes Film Festival on May 22, 2023.

Sam Levinson, who created the show for HBO, has made sex scenes for the viewers. The show stars Lily-Rose Depp as Jocelyn and Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye as Tedros as the lead. I still don’t understand why Rose Depp accepted to play this role, which is disgusting and awkward. Rose Depp gave a highly sexualized performance that is also grounded and often vulnerable, discomfitingly addressing the fine lines between sex and art, power, and exploitation that have faced young women in the music industry for years.

Lily-Rose Depp is now willing to take on challenging roles and has accepted the part of Jocelyn, a character who goes through a highly sexualized journey. Rose Depp aims to spark conversations about the treatment of young women in the music industry, while also showcasing her acting range and dedication to her craft.

Read review:

The idol is the worst pilot I’ve ever seen! We were disgusted and disappointed to have been sitting in the audience watching it! HBO should seriously consider taking it off its roster and firing Sam Levinson! (He stinks too; I walked past him as he sobbed over revenge.)

The Idol focuses on Jocelyn (Lily-Rose Depp), an aspiring pop idol who, after having a nervous breakdown that causes her last tour to be canceled, resolves to reclaim her title as the sexiest pop star in America and begins a complex relationship with Tedros (Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye), a self-help guru and the head of a contemporary cult.
