You’ve got to love a man who is both conscious of things going on in the world around him, but also happens to be a stone cold fox. Marvin Pentz Gaye was all that and more during the 44 years he was on this earth gracing us with his musical talents and presence. While he was deemed by many as a major sex symbol in the ’60s and beyond, Gaye tried to move past that image to be seen as a true artist. However, he was able to be both whether he liked it or not: make music that mattered and remain a beautiful man. I’m a huge fan of Gaye’s music (“I Want You” and “After the Dance” are my jams!), so I’m excited to present to you this slideshow of the legendary crooner who sang about love in a way everyone could enjoy and respect. He seems perfect in getting prepared for Valentine’s Day. Enjoy!

Look at Gaye as a young boi (*in my Lauryn Hill voice*). Dashing good looks!

Gotta love that smile!

Diana knows she was lucky! Always photographed with the beautiful brothas, and Marvin sure was that!

This brother was dedicated to his craft. This is very evident in the awesome catalog of music he left behind…

Furs and crisp white suits? FIERCE! Sorry PETA…

Marvin’s ever-evolving style only made him look better and better. Fresh…

What an all-around amazing man? I can see why mom and everyone else’s were swooning for the crooner. Would you have too? Let us know below, and be sure to tell us any other vintage brothas you would like to see!
