The next time you find yourself wondering what you should wear to a Justin Bieber concert, take a cue from Johnny Depp…and go dressed as a pirate.
The 47-year-old actor showed up backstage before Bieber was set to perform in Miami Saturday decked out as his “Pirates of the Caribbean” character Captain Jack Sparrow, the New York Post's Page Six reports.
"Depp was in his Sparrow gear and called Justin a 'good chap,' like he was still in character,” a source said. “Depp brought his two kids [Lily-Rose, 10, and Jack, 7] and they hung out for a while before the show."
This is apparently also why Bieber asked the audience before performing one last song, “What do you think Johnny Depp would want me to play?" Good question. Any ideas?
And while one might think that Depp would want to hang up his pirate hat, given all the time he spends in character shooting the umpteenth film in the franchise, it appears to be the opposite. Back in October, Depp put on his pirate swag once again to make a surprise visit to a school in England.
