There have been rumours flying around that Amber Heard and Johnny Depp are engaged, and indeed those rumours are based in truth: they’re going to get married! They’ve been dating since about 2012-ish (it’s a bit murky), so it might seem a bit early for rings to be put on fingers, but oh well! They’re doing it!
People wanted the inside scoop on why they got engaged. I feel like that mostly happens when two people love each other, but maybe I’m not clued in to something, so here’s what they found out:
What made Depp get so serious so fast? “She’s a great match for him and his individuality,” says a source who knows Depp. “She’s a free spirit.”
Well, that was enlightening. Don’t forget that Johnny was with Vanessa Paradis still when he met Amber on the set of The Rum Diaries. Amber was, at the time, in a relationship of her own, with photographer Tasya Van Ree. Some say they were so taken with one another’s “free spirit” that they both cheated on their partners at the time to do the dirty. Who can say?

If you’re anything like me, you probably never thought in a million years that Johnny Depp and Amber Heard‘s relationship would make it past the first month, let alone into 2014. And yet here we are, halfway through January and there are rumours running wild that Johnny has proposed. Those rumours might be truer than any of us would hope (or care about?), since Amber has been bustling about LA trying desperately to cover the massive rock on her finger.
From E! Online:
Despite a good effort to keep her left hand covered, an eagle-eyed paparazzo got a bird’s-eye view of what appeared to be a diamond ring on that ringer as Heard was leaving a restaurant last night in Los Angeles.
Reps for both Heard, 27, and Depp, 50, have not yet responded to the question this ring instantly brings to mind—is the handsome couple engaged?!
Until this past weekend, the public side of their romance had been relegated to photos of the two out and about in various cities around the world and vague references to romance and privacy in interviews.
Hmm, this picture is pretty telling, as well:
So, what’s the verdict? Are these two actually gonna go through with this nonsense?

Elton John is coming out with a new album (with a song inspired by Lindsay Lohan, I’m sure it will be a real winner) so here comes the publicity. Not sure who leaked this, but let’s file it under, “Yeah That Happened.” Apparently Elton John is trying to set up Lady Gaga with Johnny Depp. This makes no sense because
1. Elton John recently admitted that he has a hard time even getting a hold of Lady Gaga.
2. Lady Gaga is in a relationship with actor Taylor Kinney.
3. Johnny Depp is in a relationship with actress Amber Heard.
4. Why would he care? Yeah, Gaga is his son’s godmother, but it still doesn’t make sense, because of points #2 and #3.
They’re going so far as to say he set up a “surprise blind date” for them. Here’s even more from Entertainmentwise:
A source revealed: “Elton was determined to hook up Johnny and Gaga,” adding: “While the meeting was under the guise of a future musical collaboration, Elton is convinced the two superstars would make an amazing power couple even though they’re both dating other people right now.”
Apparently the duo “bonded over music, flirted a little and basically got to know each other. By the end of the night, they’d already made plans to see each other again. Elton just sat there grinning.”
Such fan fiction. If this happens, I’m sure Ke$ha will be devastated. The only steady relationship Johnny Depp needs to be in is one with a shower.

I don’t really care about Johnny Depp and Amber Heard – not as a couple or individually, for that matter (although I will say I went to a party at a designer’s studio last year and Amber Heard was there and was kinda mindblowingly gorgeous). Their romance just doesn’t move me – and why should it, really, considering we don’t know them? In any case, Amber did an interview with Flare magazine in which she felt the need to clear up any “misconceptions” (uh…) and let people know that she and Johnny are nothing like Brangelina. Because you were obviously making that comparison.
“Can you ever imagine yourself in a situation like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie or Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, where the world feels like they have a stake in your private life? I would never want it.”
“I guess I could not hold hands with who I want to, but what kind of life would that be? I don’t want to change just because people are watching.”
Well, that’s fair enough, but people are all up in their grills because they live the kind of lifestyle where they’re around paparazzi 24/7 and sort of invite that. Even Brad and Angelina don’t have people in their faces ALL the time, but they would if they invited that kind of attention.
Anyway, these two are a boring couple – but then, that’s coming from someone who never got the big deal about Johnny Depp.

Hey, did you know Johnny Depp is nearly completely blind in one eye? Me neither! He’s apparently super near-sighted in his right eye and his left is blurry as hell and he can’t see shit out of it, forcing him to rely on some heavy duty prescription glasses. Intense!
From Rolling Stone:
His glasses are prescription, and he needs them badly, though they don’t do anything for his left eye. Since birth, he’s been “basically blind as a bat” in that one, in a way that’s impossible to correct. “Everything is just very, very blurry,” he says. “I’ve never had proper vision.” The right eye is simply nearsighted (and lately, far-sighted). So whenever he’s acting – unless he’s lucky enough to be in a scene where his character wears sunglasses – Depp can see only a few inches away from his face.
