We’re not sure if Quincy Jones has gotten to that stage of his life where he doesn’t care anymore, but in his newest interview with Vulture, the 84-year-old music mogul reveals the truth about everything, and we mean EVERYTHING (last month, in an interview with GQ, he talked about his 22 girlfriends, why he hated Taylor Swift and Donald Glover playing him in his biopic).
First, he revealed the one thing people didn’t know about Michael Jackson:
“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.”
This doesn’t come as much of a surprise unfortunately. Last summer Jones won a huge lawsuit against the King of Pop’s estate, taking home $9.4 million.
Then he talked Marlon Brando‘s very interesting relationship with some of the biggest names in Hollywood:
“He used to go cha-cha dancing with us. He could dance his ass off. He was the most charming motherf-cker you ever met. He’d f-ck anything. Anything! He’d f-ck a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.”
The interviewer asks, “He slept with them? how do you know that?”
Jones response, “Come on, man. He did not give a f-ck!”
Well damn, Q.
