In lieu of a wordy acceptance speech for his MTV Generation Award, the show's version of a lifetime achievement trophy, Johnny Depp performed with The Black Keys. Steven Tyler and Joe Perry presented the award to the 48-year-old "Pirates of the Caribbean" star, who accompanied The Black Keys on guitar for "Gold on the Ceiling" and "Lonely Boy."
"It's like the get-out-of-the-business award," said Depp.
Other winners Sunday included Shailene Woodley for breakthrough performance for "The Descendants," Jennifer Aniston as best on-screen dirtbag for "Horrible Bosses" and LMFAO's "Party Rock Anthem" from "21 Jump Street" for best music.
