Johnny Depp to appear in Rihanna’s ‘Savage X Fenty Vol. 4’ fashion show alongside Kanye West, Jay-Z and others
‘Funny Man’ director Michael Moore says Depp’s appearance was the result of a meeting between the actor and West
Michael Moore, who is known for challenging the liberal status quo, will join Hollywood heavyweights Kanye West, Jay-Z and others for an invitation-only fashion show at West Hollywood’s Roosevelt Hotel.
In addition to Moore, the legendary director will appear in a video message called ‘Savage X Fenty Vol. 4’ – the fourth installment of the series that has been shot in his hometown California.
Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, Moore said: ‘I wanted to make sure that Jay, Kanye and Rihanna got a chance to see Michael Moore’s message. I’ve known Kanye West for a long time, and I knew he would love him. So Jay-Z was great – but Michael Moore was great for being the one who was talking. I just went there and gave him Michael Moore’s message, and Michael Moore said, “Yes, you know I’d love to do it.”
‘Rihanna was great, too. She’s like our big sister.’

Moore says he and Rihanna were on the same page when it came to the invite-only fashion show, a move that was ultimately a success.
He told the Hollywood Reporter: ‘I said I wanted to do the show, and she just looked me in the eye and said yes. I couldn’t believe it. So, I called my manager and said I need some help. He said, “Michael, I’m going to fly you down to Paris, for a few days.”
‘I had a couple of friends who were getting along with Rihanna and the kids. It was a great way to spend our first day in Paris. I couldn’t believe how cool the French were.’
