    “It Feels Very Therapeutic”: Lily-Rose Depp Defends The Nudity And Explicit Scenes In ‘The Idol’

    ‘The Idol’  is defying the claims that the cast members have been making since the episode first aired. They have been saying that the series will get better with each episode and that it will establish the reason why the characters are being so hyper-s*****ized. But the series is on its fourth episode, and there has been no substantial character growth for any of the characters. It is not helping the already existing controversies about the show being called borderline p****graphic.

    ‘The Idol’ is the story of a pop star, Jocelyn, played by Lily-Rose Depp, who is going through a fame crisis. She has an emotional breakdown that derails her career, and her entourage is helping her get back on track. During that process, she meets Tedros, who promises to help her gain creative powers through pain by indulging in s** activities. The show is filled with n*** scenes and explicit s** fantasies for no reason at all. But Lily is finding it therapeutic to play such an objectified and highly fetishized woman.

    ‘The Idol’ has taken over the internet even before its release! A Rolling Stone article interviewed several members of the production and crew about the behind-the-scenes chaos that erupted. The members admitted that Sam Levinson reshot most of the series after he replaced Amy Schmitz. He changed the narrative, which earlier wanted to satirize the industry’s obsession with s**. However, Sam perpetuated the narrative and scrapped the satirization idea.

    Lily-Rose Depp’s Jocelyn seems to be there on the screen to serve and titillate the man who is aiding her in the creative process. She seems like a puppet and an object of Tedros’ desires. Jocelyn is getting more entrapped in the fatal notions of the industry’s twisted fantasy for a female pop star. But Lily does not have any qualms about playing such a fractured character.

    During an interview with The Sun, Lily-Rose Depp said, “It’s all me. I love doing that kind of work. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. And I don’t think there’s anything wrong with enjoying that kind of work.”

    Lily-Rose Depp was very comfortable with the vision of Sam Levinson. Jocelyn is damaged, but the portrayal of her coping with her emotions is not the most perfect. But Lily was okay doing it, and Jocelyn’s objectified and hyper-s*****ized treatment was okay for the actress.

    She continued, “Every outfit and every interaction and every piece of nudity and all those things are very intentional and were really important to me.”

    Lily added, “Maybe this makes me, like, a little twisted. But I feel really good after doing scenes like that because there’s something that feels very therapeutic about it to me — and maybe that’s why I like doing this job.”
