D’Angelo Remembers The Time Madonna Tried To Get In His Pants
I know, I’m late… but if you are too, then get into D’Angelo’s GQ spread, in which they titled “Amen! (D’Angelo’s Back)”. The magazine was able to snag the singer for his first photo shoot in over ten years. I don’t remember whether it was the notorious “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” video, or the day I realized that the song “Brown Sugar” was a clever double entendre that I began to appreciate D’Angelo, but that’s neither here, nor there. In the interview, he talked about getting caught for soliciting sex, being objectified by women and how Madonna once wanted to get into his pants.
…on his arrest for soliciting sex from an undercover officer: “It was just me making a stupid decision, a wrong turn, on the wrong night. I’m not the role-model motherfucker. Look at all the shit that I’ve been in.”
…on an instance with a female fan: “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.’
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.”
This spread is a pleasant sight, after seeing those infamous mugshot photos. Read the full interview over at GQ!
