Good dad, loving husband, German reggae star: Gentleman is all these things. His latest album, Diversity, with its combination of smooth roots reggae and positive dancehall, entered the Teutonic charts at number one in 2010. Although this technically makes him a pop star, during a recent visit to the MTV offices he talked more about the spiritual roots of reggae than swagging out that bling. Of course, he said it in that sexy, raspy patois that betrayed his heartthrob status.
In this exclusive MTV Iggy photo shoot, Gentleman’s warm gaze sees right into our souls. And loving wife or not, we might be blushing a little.
