D’Angelo Brings His Sexy Back To GQ Magazine
Posted by on May 22, 2012

Wow! D’Angelo is that you? This is far cry from where the fallen R&B star was when he was arrested  in 2006  for trying to solicit sex from a female officer. D’Angelo has seemed to got himself together and ready to reclaim his spotlight.  He has fought [and is still fighting] is way out of addiction and is focused again on his music.  GQ magazine got upclose and personal with D’Angelo and he opened up about Angie Stone, Madonna, his substance abuse and more.

Check out  excerpts  from D’ Angelo‘s  interview with GQ Magazine:

On his brief stint in rehab: “I went in under a fake name so people wouldn’t know who I was, right? So, you know, Michael never got treatment. It was this other character that was in there. And the moment I left, I went straight to the fucking liquor store.”

On being charged in 2006 with solicitation after offering a female undercover police officer $40 for a blow job: “It was just me making a stupid decision, a wrong turn, on the wrong night.” He adds, “I’m not the role-model motherfucker. Look at all the shit that I’ve been in.”

Angie Stone on her former lover and father of her son: “I knew a superstar was on the rise. There was an innocence there that if we weren’t careful was going to get trashed. It’s not a little bit of God in him. It’s a lot of God in him. Sometimes when you have that much power, Satan works tenfold to break you.”

On escaping advancements from Madonna: When Madonna turned 39, she asked him to sing “Happy Birthday” at her party. One press report had her sitting on his lap and French-kissing him. In fact, two sources say that ultimately D rebuffed her advances at another gathering not long after. At that event, the sources say, Madonna walked over and told a woman sitting next to D, “I think you’re in my seat.” The woman got up. Madonna sat down and told him, “I’d like to know what you’re thinking.” To which D replied, “I’m thinking you’re rude.”

On the good/bad of being a sex symbol: “One time I got mad when a female threw money at me onstage, and that made me feel fucked-up, and I threw the money back at her,” he says. “I was like, ‘I’m not a stripper.’ “

On escaping the spotlight after his last tour (Voodoo): “When I got back home, yeah, it wasn’t that easy to just be,” he says. “I think that’s the thing that got me in a lot of trouble: me trying to just be Michael, the regular old me from back in the day, and me fighting that whole sex-symbol thing. You know: ‘Hey, I ain’t D’Angelo today. I’m just plain old Mike, and I just want to hang out with my boys and do what we used to do.’ But, damn, those days are fucking gone.”

On kicking his bad habits: “Any person who’s dealt with substance abuse, it’s an ongoing thing. That’s the mantra—one day at a time—right? So you’re going to have good days and bad days, but for the most part, I have a grip on it.” He feels the forces of good are on his side now. “I don’t know why it didn’t happen sooner. It’s just the way Yahweh ordained it.”
