Following showings at the BET Awards and the House of Blues that earned D'Angelo stellar reviews, the soul singer is continuing his (extremely welcomed) return to form by announcing a late summer tour. The performer, who is carefully making a comeback after more than a decade in seclusion, is set for a co-headlining trek, dubbed the Liberation Tour, on which he will be joined by the reigning Queen of Hip-Hop Soul,Mary J. Blige. Only six dates were unveiled on Monday, the first being an Aug. 18 stop in Virginia Beach, Va. Blige told Rolling Stone the tour will be 20 dates.

During Sunday's live telecast of the 2012 BET Awards, anticipation reigned, with questions filling Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium. What would polarizing singer Chris Brown say? How would soul singer D'Angelo's highly awaited comeback performance fare? And how would BET pay tribute to fallen pop titan Whitney Houston, whose February death cast a shadow over the Grammys? The annual show, which started in 2001, is known for its over-the-top performances and drama onstage and last year pulled in 7.7 million viewers.

At the 2012 BET Awards Sunday in Los Angeles, anticipation reigned thanks to a long-awaited comeback by soul singer D'Angelo, the potential of Whitney Houston's mom Cissy paying tribute to her late daughter in song, and a performance by Chris Brown. The BET stage is the first high-profile appearance the often-embattled Brown has made following a highly publicized bar melee reportedly involving him, Drake and buzzy rapper Meek Mill. No sign of Drake, but Meek performed with his Maybach Music Group and Brown hit the stage more than midway through the telecast.

There is much to envy about actress Beverly D'Angelo: ageless beauty, a Hollywood career of lasting duration, the fact that hunky Al Pacino parked his slippers at her front door for years and that she owns a 1920s Spanish-style gem of a house in Beverly Hills that has come on the market at $2,185,000. The five-bedroom, 4 1/2 -bathroom, 4,045-square-foot house has a two-story entryway, arched doorways and hardwood floors.

Despite reports from authorities that the R&B singer D'Angelo had been badly injured in a car crash, a lawyer for the neo-soul star said Monday that his client was home and healthy. D'Angelo, 31, was in a 2003 Hummer on Sept. 19 when it veered off a highway in his native state of Virginia and crashed into a fence. Another occupant, Lynne Sellers, was injured too. Police could not say who was driving. State Police Sgt. Kevin Barrick said Monday that the Grammy winner was ejected from the vehicle.
