HBO Is Using Raunchy Photos Of Lily-Rose Depp To Promote New Series ‘The Idol’

Despite not yet premiering on HBO, the upcoming series The Idol has already made tons of headlines for the network.

While they say that all press is good press, that may not be the case for The Idol, as there were reports from earlier this year that painted series creator Sam Levinson in an allegedly creepy light.

On the other side of the news-making spectrum, however, was the first full trailer for the series, which sees Lily-Rose Depp star as the scantily-clad pop star Jocelyn.

With the series set to premiere in just a few weeks — on June 4, which is the week after both Succession and Barry conclude their brilliant four-season runs — HBO is certainly doing their part to drum up hype for the show, as their Twitter account shared a wildly raunchy photo of Depp that was captioned “When was the last truly-f******-nasty, nasty bad pop girl?” which is a line that’s spoken in the upcoming drama.

In addition to Depp as Jocelyn and The Weeknd as Tedros, The Idol also stars Suzanna Son, Troye Sivan, Moses Sumney, Jane Adams, Dan Levy, Jennie Ruby Jane, Eli Roth, Rachel Sennott, Hari Nef, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Mike Dean, Hank Azaria, Melanie Liburd, Tunde Adebimpe, Elizabeth Bekley, Nico Hiraga, Maya Eshet, Tyson Ritter,  Anne Heche, and more.

The series premiere of The Idol will hit HBO and HBO Max on Sunday, June 4 at 9 p.m. If you want to keep up with Lily-Rose Depp, make sure to follow her Instagram account which currently has over 8 million followers.

The Idol is Depp’s first television role, having previously appeared in movies such as The King, Voyagers, and Wolf. She’s also set to star in Robert Eggers’ remake of Nosferatu alongside a star-studded cast that includes Bill Skarsgard, Nicholas Hoult, Emma Corrin, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Willem Dafoe.
