D’Angelo’s Sexy Makes A Comeback In GQ Magazine!!
Ladies, D’Angelo has got his sexy back, and it’s on full display in the current issue (May 2012) of GQ magazine!!! The Richmond, Virginia native once again looks like the 90s R&B heartthrob who had many women hoping the camera would go down just a few inches more in his infamous “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” video. I just may have to travel to Philadelphia for Jay-Z‘s 2-day ‘Made In America’ festival during Labor Day weekend, as it has just been announced that D’Angelo will perform. Check out highlight’s from his interview with the mag below (via NecoleBitchie):
D’Angelo on the evil in music:
“‘There’s forces that are going on that I don’t think a lot of motherf-ckers that make music today are aware of,’ he says. ‘It’s deep. I’ve felt it. I’ve felt other forces puling at me.’ He stubs out his cigarette and leans toward me, taking my hand. ‘This is a very powerful medium that we are involved in,’ he says gravely. ‘I learned at an early age that what we were doing in the choir was just as important as the preacher. It was a ministry in itself. We could stir the pot, you know? The stage is our pulpit, and you can use all of the energy and that music and the lights and the colors and the sound. But you know, you’ve got to be careful.’”
D’Angelo on how the “Untitled” video changed his image:
“One time I got mad when a female threw money at me onstage, and that made me feel like f-cked-up, and I threw the money back at her. I was like, ‘I’m not a stripper.’
On the last day of the eight-month tour, Questlove says D’Angelo told him, ‘Yo, man, I cannot wait until this f-cking tour is over. I’m going to go in the woods, drink some hooch, grow a beard, and get fat.’ Questlove thought he was joking. ‘I was like, ‘You’re a funny guy.’ And then it started to happen.That’s how much he wanted to distance himself.’”
