The BET Awards 2012 will be very soulful this year now that R&B crooner D’Angelo has been added to the line up. This will be the "How Does It Feel' singer's first major stage performance in years. Other stars that will be hitting the BET stage that night include Nicki Minaj, Usher, Chris Brown, Big Sean and Cissy Houston.
Don't call it a come back just yet. D’Angelo was arrested yesterday for soliciting a blowie–not brown sugar–from an undercover policewoman for a whopping 40 bucks:
Grammy Award-winning R&B singer D’Angelo was arrested early yesterday after allegedly offering an undercover policewoman $40 for oral sex while cruising alone through the West Village — with $12,000 stashed in his SUV.
D’Angelo, 36, whose real name is Michael Archer, was in his top-of-the-line Range Rover at Greenwich and Horatio streets at about 2:30 a.m. when he spotted a woman he took to be a prostitute, sources said.
He was arrested and charged with solicitation after asking the woman for sex, the sources said. His manager declined to comment.
