Brad Pitt And Johnny Depp Are Smiling And Partying Like It's 1999: Music And Old Friends Take The Sting Out [Opinion]

Kim McLendon

Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp are smiling again, partying again and enjoying life despite their messy divorces. Depp's divorce finalized today, and while the custody battle continues for Pitt, Brad seems to be a lot more relaxed since the public accusations from Angelina Jolie have finally stopped.

Brad Pitt's beautiful smile returned as he hung out with Sting and Chris Cornell of Soundgarden. Brad Pitt is no longer sequestered in private. First Pitt surprised everyone by presenting at the Golden Globes on January 8, and most recently Brad appearing with Sting and Cornell at the EBMRF Benefit in Malibu.

•12 January, 1990• •Concert Hall, Toronto, ON, Canada• Tour: Louder Than Love Song: LOUD LOVE "Soon the adonis-like Cornell was standing on local stages, shirtless and wild-haired, unleashing his otherworldly operatic screams. It wasn't just that he screamed though, anyone can do that. His piercing voice has an unusual emotional precision. Even from their earliest recordings, like their tracks on the 1985 compilation Deep Six, he nails each melody like a bullet hitting its target at close range. Unlike most rock singers, Cornell looked at his voice as a work-in-progress. He spent hours every day singing so hard that the neighbors could always hear him a capella, keeping his vocal chords in shape just as athletes train their bodies."- Circus Magazine, 1997 #soundgarden #kimthayil #mattcameron #chriscornell #jasoneverman

"Well, I been havin' a little trouble lord But I'm keepin' it together yeah My baby just walked out the doors She said this time forever"

Marylin Manson powerfully defended Johnny Depp in the media during the worst of Amber Heard's accusations, and Alice Cooper was quite protective of Johnny Depp as well. See the story on the Inquisitr.

"We never heard about it on tour. We never talked about it, not once. I've never seen him in such a good mood, though."
"He's focusing on himself again, watching what he eats and has a chef making him healthy meals."
"I'm gonna miss you cleanin' round the home And helpin' with my blues You know I think I'll get myself a maid And take her on a cruise."

Brad Pitt might just have the right idea, though. Men don't always eat healthy when left to their own devices. Why not hire a personal chef to ensure proper nutrition. It seems to be working well for Brad. Rumor has it that Brad Pitt has lost a lot of weight, but at least Pitt looks happier than he has in a long while.

Johnny Depp probably wasn't eating right on his Hollywood Vampires tour, but with Alice Cooper around, Johnny Depp is bound to have benefited from good companionship and fun.

For Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp, yes divorce is sad, especially when the other person is saying just awful things to the media, but at least Pitt and Depp still have friends. Johnny Depp's divorce is going to cost him $14 million in charitable contributions, and Brad Pitt could lose custody of his children.

Divorce is very sad, but in both cases, the decision is out of their hands. Why shouldn't Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp turn to good friends and good music, or better yet, good friends who make good music?

Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp are going to be OK thanks to Sting, Chris Cornell, Alice Cooper and Joe Perry.
