Johnny Depp – He’s a “Belieber”

By Tom Snyder, Editor

Johnny Depp, star of the new animated movie RANGO, which arrives in theaters Friday, recently discussed the kinds of things he watches and listens to with his young daughter and son, at a press conference in Los Angeles for RANGO.

Apparently, Justin Bieber is high on the list.

In hearing this bit of news, one of the reporters shouted out a question to Johnny, “Are you a Belieber?” “Belieber” is the new nickname for fans of the pop music icon.

“Yes, I’m a Belieber,” Johnny replied.

The story doesn’t end there, however.

A few moments later, who should walk in but Justin Bieber himself, who was in Los Angeles to promote his new concert movie, NEVER SAY NEVER. Justin said he heard Johnny Depp was at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills where they were both staying and where the RANGO press conference was held and wanted to say hello because the two had never met.

When told by the reporters attending the press conference that Johnny had said, “I’m a Believer,” Justin pointed at the movie star and said, “I believe in you too.”

Apparently, Justin is as much a fan of Johnny Depp as Johnny and his 11-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose, are of Justin.

Of course, in Justin’s new concert movie, several Christian prayers are said by Justin, his mother and Justin’s crew. One of the prayers was a prayer before a small meal led by Justin with two of his friends at a tiny luncheon shop of some kind.

Justin clearly believes in Jesus Christ. MOVIEGUIDE® urges its readers, viewers and listeners to pray for Justin’s faith and that of his mother, as well as pray for the salvation and redemption of Johnny Depp and his family.

Fame and fortune don’t last forever and often have their price, but, as long as we remember Who’s truly important – Jesus Christ, God will bless our activities, one way or another, in this life or the next.

“The only thing that counts is faith in Jesus Christ expressing itself through love.”

– Galatians 5:6
