Grab your reading glasses, your tea cups and prepare yourself to drink the tea in gulps that music legend Quincy Jones has recently spilled. A veteran in the music industry, Jones has given the interview of a lifetime. There is no tea he didn’t spill as he talks about the truth behind Michael Jackson and his vitiligo, the sexuality of Marvin Gaye, and what he really thinks about today’s music and Donald Trump.
“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,” Jones said.
In the extensive interview with Vulture, Jones unveils the reality of what it is to be a black man in the music industry and in Hollywood. Interviewed by David Marchese, Jones tells him what he feels the country’s current state regarding racism is and where it’s headed. Reflecting on the studio sessions he was in on, Jones made mention of how he felt legends like Jimmy Hendrix and The Beatles.
Also, according to Jones, Donald Trump is the biggest idiot to ever be elected president and has no idea what he is doing. When asked about the rumors surrounding him dating #45’s ex-wife, Jones replied,
“I used to date Ivanka, you know…Twelve years ago. Tommy Hilfiger, who was working with my daughter Kidada, said, ‘Ivanka wants to have dinner with you.’ I said, ‘She’s a fine motherf***er.’ She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though.”
To add more spice to the interview, Jones even eluded to knowing who really killed Kennedy, and if Bill Cosby really did sprinkle some motivation in the ladies’ drinks.
Though it is unclear as to why Jones decided now was the best time to spill this awesome tea, we’re glad he did. Jones is currently slated to release documentary on Netflix in his name and of course he’s turning the big 85 this year, so maybe this is a sample of what is to come.
