Johnny Depp Joins Marilyn Manson's Sweaty, Middle-Aged Orgy in New Video

by at .

It's not easy being an aging rock star.

For every Keith Richards or David Bowie who successfully keeps his edges sharp over the course of several decades, there are several dozen Ted Nugents or Kid Rocks who rapidly deteriorate into sad self parody.

The aging process is especially hard on folks like Marilyn Manson, who might find it difficult to maintain the level of shock value that helped them gain fame early in their careers.

And it's even harder on folks like Johnny Depp, an actor who just sort of declared himself a rock star without any of the hit records.

(Yes, yes, we know he's played guitar alongside some very famous folks, but, like, name a Johnny Depp song, ya know?)

Depp and Manson have joined forces for the latter's newest music video, and it's clear that they both want very badly to still be considered cool ... but ironically, but that's a painfully uncool desire.

The clip shows Johnny and Marilyn getting down in a foursome, but it's not the sexual content that's creating controversy.

Rather it's the violent firearm-glorifying lyrics (Manson encourages his love interest to "unload a six round in their f--kin' face" at one point.) and the choice of Depp in the role of voyeur/seducer.

For many, Amber Heard's abuse claims against Depp are still a painful, traumatic memory that's been dredged to the surface again in the wake of Hollywood's recent sex scandals.

Add that to the controversy surrounding Manson's gun stunt at a recent concert, and it's not hard to see why some folks are arguing that the video is poorly timed.
