December 2011 Phosphore article translation

I am very close to Johnny, and Vanessa worked with my father. They called their daughter Lily Rose Melody, in reference to the album Histoire de Melody Nelson (1971). We recorded the song in Los Angeles, in the studio of Johnny Depp. It was he who makes the music. Few people know this but, before becoming an actor, he was a musician. He is a very good guitarist, he has an incredible collection of guitars. It's hard to say this is my model because, over time, he has become a friend. He is like a big brother. Masculine presence that I lack somewhere, he filled. He listened to some tracks on the album and he said: "I love you strongly and I am very proud of you."
