The Idol debut at the Cannes Film Festival Attracts Adoring Fans

The crowd gave the actors in the cast of the Idol also known as "sleaziest love story in all of Hollywood" a five-minute standing applause.

The Idol, an eagerly anticipated new HBO series from the mind behind Euphoria that calls itself the “sleaziest love story in all of Hollywood,” has its international premiere on Monday at the annual Cannes Film Festival.

The show’s stars, Lily-Rose Depp and Abel Tesfaye, accompanied Travis Scott, Stella Maxwell, and Julia Fox along the red carpet in front of a crowded crowd of shouting fans on the Croisette promenade. Julia Fox was also wearing black lipstick and a plastic gown.

Depp plays Jocelyn, a pop diva attempting to make a sexier-than-ever return after experiencing an anxiety attack. Depp’s legendary father, Johnny Depp, likewise made his debut at the festival.

Tesfaye, more commonly recognised as the megastar The Weeknd, makes his acting debut in the series. He plays Tedros, a nightclub mogul from Los Angeles and Jocelyn’s romantic interest.

Using the stage identity Jennie Ruby Jane, Jennie Kim, a member of the well-known K-pop girl group BLACKPINK, will also be making her debut as an actress in the TV series. The project also plans to have appearances from Dan Levy, Hank Azaria, and Anne Heche, who passed away in 2022.

Together with Sam Levinson, the man behind the successful HBO teen show Euphoria, Tesfaye co-wrote and co-created the TV series.

When asked about Tesfaye’s idea for the show, Levinson noted that she said, “If I wanted to start a cult, I could.”

Levinson stated that Tesfaye implied his supporters were so passionate and dedicated that they were going to accompany him wherever.

What follows once a pop star falls in love with an unsuitable man and no one steps up? “That was the seed of the concept for The Idol.”

The Weeknd is well-known for songs like “Starboy” and “Blinding Lights,” and Depp portrayed Isadora Duncan in the 2016 film The Dancer, which aired in Cannes’ Un Certain Regard section.

On June 4, the television series will premiere.
