R&B King With Queen Of Pop?
D'Angelo has spoken out about the rumours claiming he and Madonna enjoyed a brief fling back in the 90s. The R&B veteran, who is in the process of making a comeback after a ten-year absence, was rumoured to have had a smooch with Madonna at her 39th birthday party. However, D'Angelo actually remembers a very different encounter and there was very little loving going on.
"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," writes GQ in their interview with D'Angelo.
"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.'
Was D'Angelo silly to rebuff Madonna's advances?
