Singer D’Angelo Reveals why he got fat ; Photos from his new GQ shoot
Many people remember D’Angelo from his famous “Untitled” Video. But many people were shocked when D’Angelo emerged and looked like the male version of precious, picture above.
Everyone was wondering what was going on with him. How in the hell did he let himself go so bad? Well D’angelo has explained why he let his image alter so much from his signature look.
QuestLove recalls D’Angelo’s desire to get fat & distancing himself from entertainment:
On the last day of the eight-month tour, Questlove says D’Angelo told him, “Yo, man, I cannot wait until this fucking 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.”
I guess this makes sense, if you don’t look like you can work then you can’t work. It may have been a bit drastic but you have to do what you have to at times.
Since then D’angelo has slimmed back down, and I’m guessing he is ready to clock back in. Check out his pictures from GQ magazine and you can read the whole interview HERE.
