MTV Movie Awards: Black Keys & Johnny Depp

UNIVERSAL CITY, California — The Black Keys brought Johnny Depp's inner rock star front and center on the stage at Sunday's (June 3) MTV Movie Awards, trading licks with the guitar-wielding (and increasingly tattooed) actor through a steady, polished and rollicking performance of "Gold on the Ceiling."

Depp called the band "up-and-coming legends" as he accepted the Generation Award before joining the band again for "Lonely Boy." CLICK HERE to read the rest of my report.
