Directed by Sam Levinson, the show follows the story of Jocelyn, played by Lily-Rose, a pop star who experiences a psychotic break after her mother's death. She meets Tedros, portrayed by The Weeknd, and together they navigate the music industry and their own personal struggles.

During a press conference, Lily-Rose addressed the criticism the show has received for its explicit content and portrayal of the music industry.

She brushed off claims of a toxic on-set environment, stating that her experience was quite the opposite. She expressed her disappointment in false reports, saying, "It’s always a little sad and disheartening to see mean, false things said about someone you care about, and that you know is not like that. It wasn't reflective at all of my experience."

Both Lily-Rose and Johnny seem to be thriving in their respective projects, garnering praise and adoration from audiences. They are excited to share their work with the world and couldn't be prouder of each other's accomplishments.
