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.

  5. Pour ce qui est de la navigation net, Samsung ne
    révolutionne pas sa formule avec son Galaxy S4 Mini.
    La gestion des fenêtres et favoris n’a pas changé sur le navigateur de base.
    Mais ce dernier se montre tout de même très rapide. Il faut un rating de 1170 ms sur SunSpider , ce qui est du même niveau que son grand frère
    qui avait fait 1190 lors de notre test. Même selected sur Vellamo avec
    un score HTML5 de 2021 pour le S4 Mini contre 2100 pour le S4.
    Un bon score dans l’absolu.

  6. Cyberingme says:

    Well he’s back to fat again. I saw him on SNL last night. Why D why?!!! That used to be a sexy fit man! I still am a fan of his music however, but the crush is over lol!

  7. Hey D,
    Love your music whatever size you are. You be you and be happy with yourself. Forget what everybody else say. They have problems trying to stay a size, trying to please everyone else.
    Love you????

  8. This man brought a lot of people’s out of a bad place, and start a direct healing process that gave way to being Brown and loved,as well as Black and loved. Him being fat just made him cuter. He’s a healer of love, life and togetherness, he back to help Angie and other’s find themselves, he’s awesome and he doesn’t even know it!!!!
