Johnny Depp is no longer one of the coolest men alive.
He is officially THE coolest man alive. At the MTV Movie Awards last night, he was not only handed the Generation Award, but joined The Black Keys live onstage for special performances of “Gold on the Ceiling” and “Lonely Boy.”
You may now add rock star to his resume:
The often-animated Depp maintained a straight face through the song, letting singer Dan Auerbach and guitarist Patrick Carney soak up the spotlight.
It was an awesome moment ... so much so that host Russell Brand had to take a break from making penis jokes to acknowledge it. Not a small feat.
Depp is far from a novice, however. A fairly accomplished musician, he's collaborated with everyone from Oasis to Alice Cooper over the past 25 years.
Still, this ranks up there with the Dark Shadows star's top moments, we're guessing. Certainly for fans, his cool quotient was never been higher.
