Quincy Jones is no longer holding onto “industry secrets.”
In his latest interview with Vulture the legendary music mogul had a lot to say about EVERYBODY, including the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.
Keep in mind Quincy Jones is prepping for a new Netflix and an American TV special therefore fans have a LOT to look forward to.
Let’s start with what Quincy had to say about Michael Jackson…read the excerpt below:
I hate to get into this publicly, but Michael stole a lot of stuff. He stole a lot of songs. [Donna Summer’s] “State of Independence and “Billie Jean.” The notes don’t lie, man. He was as Machiavellian as they come. Greedy, man. Greedy. “Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough” — Greg Phillinganes wrote the c section. Michael should’ve given him 10 percent of the song. Wouldn’t do it.
I used to kill him about the plastic surgery, man. He’d always justify it and say it was because of some disease he had. Bullshit.”
Quincy also mentioned his “PAST RELATIONS” with Trumps daughter Ivanka Trump:
“I used to date Ivanka, you know.”
“Twelve years ago. Tommy Hilfiger, who was working with my daughter Kidada. Hilfiger said, “Ivanka wants to have dinner with you.” I said, “No problem. She’s a fine motherfucker.” She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though.”
Oh and Rock Music and the Beatles? Quincy was not a fan:
“Rock ain’t nothing but a white version of rhythm and blues, motherfucker. You know, I met Paul McCartney when he was 21. [His first impression of the Beatles]… they were the worst musicians in the world. They were no-playing motherfuckers. Paul was the worst bass player I ever heard. And Ringo? Don’t even talk about it. I remember once we were in the studio with George Martin, and Ringo had taken three hours for a four-bar thing he was trying to fix on a song. He couldn’t get it.
We said, ‘Mate, why don’t you get some lager and lime, some shepherd’s pie, and take an hour-and-a-half and relax a little bit.’ So he did, and we called Ronnie Verrell, a jazz drummer. Ronnie came in for 15 minutes and tore it up. Ringo comes back and says, ‘George, can you play it back for me one more time?’ So George did, and Ringo says, ‘That didn’t sound so bad.’ And I said, ‘Yeah, motherfucker because it ain’t you.’ Great guy, though.”
