Remember when your mom and aunty used to lose their minds over D’Angelo back in the day? It wasn’t just his smooth vocals that made the ladies lose it, it was his hard, beefcake bod too! There was no doubt about it; D’Angelo was a good looking man. Plus, he had the confidence to go with his dashing good looks — or so we thought…
It turns out that D’Angelo, real name Michael Archer, wasn’t emotionally equipped to handle his growing fame. D’Angelo mistakenly believed his music was not appreciated by his fans as much as his hawt bod was. So, like most artists who lose their focus, D’Angelo dropped out of the music scene. Paralyzed with self-doubt, he neglected his music and turned to a life of drugs and alcohol abuse.
Along the way, D’Angelo, now 37, was arrested for drug possession and DUI’s. He did a stint in drug rehab in 2006. And on Mar. 10, 2010, he was arrested for soliciting oral sex from a female undercover officer in New York City.
But despite his many setbacks, the old D’Angelo made a triumphant return to the stage during a performance in Paris, France over the weekend. Watch the performance after the break!
