Monday Man Candy: Marvin Gaye

It seems fitting that, with it being Black History Month, the rest of this month's Monday Man Candy dreamboats will be black. If you have suggestions, please leave them in the comments! First up is Marvin Gaye. I was clicking through something the other day and was struck by the beauty of Marvin Gaye's smile. So let's look at him together!

Once upon a time, Marvin Gaye didn't have a beard. He was a handsome man, very clean-cut and upstanding, like he could've been in the army.

But then he was all like politics! I'm changing the world with my music! Let me grow this bohemian beard and wear questionable beanies. And everything was right with the world.

I want to kiss the hell out of this face.
The smile! The eyes! Obviously, it wasn't just the voice that made the whole stadium of women go nuts in that recording of "Distant Lover" (you know the one I mean).
I'm too sexy for my Rolls Royce via
And when he eschewed the beanies for a suit, my God. The fur draped over the arm just so, huge 70s lapels cutting through the wind aerodynamically. I can't stand the cool.

I don't even know what this is but I love it.

Hope you enjoyed this week's Monday Man Candy. Who do you nominate for next week?
