Quincy Jones's outrageous comments about the Beatles and Michael Jackson leave world horrified
Quincy Jones, the legendary music producer who frequently collaborated with Michael Jackson, has accused the late King Of Pop of plagiarism, among other allegations.
In an lengthy interview with Vulture Magazine, recording veteran Quincy Jones made of number of wild assertions, including that he once dated the first daughter of the United States, who is 48 years younger than him.
He also made claims like The Beatles were "the worst musicians in the world," that guitar legend Jimi Hendrix was afraid to play with his band and that he knew who was behind former President John F. Kennedy's assassination.
Since Quincy's revelations are so wild and unbelieavable, let's go at them one at a time to avoid a breakdown.
Jones, who has won 28 Grammys in his musical career, claimed that he and Ivanka Trump dated back in 2006, "I used to date Ivanka, you know."
"Tommy Hilfiger, who was working with my daughter Kidada, said, 'Ivanka wants to have dinner with you.’ I said, ‘No problem. She’s a fine motherf**er.’"
"She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life," Jones continued. "Wrong father, though."
Jones went on to elaborate why thinks why US President Donald Trump is "wrong".
"I used to hang out with him," Jones stated. "He’s a crazy motherf**er. Limited mentally — a megalomaniac, narcissistic. I can’t stand him.”
"He doesn’t know shit. Someone who knows about real leadership wouldn’t have as many people against him as he does. He’s a fucking idiot," he added.
Fox News made an effort to receive comments from the White House on Jones' claims, but was unsuccessful in doing so.
The Trumps weren't the only ones at the receiving end of Quincy's attempt to become relevant again.
Vulture Magazine did not miss the chance to ask Jones about Michael Jackson's several plastic surgeries.
"He’d always justify it and say it was because of some disease he had. Bulls**t," said Jones.
Jones accused the late pop star of stealing songs from other musicians, calling him greeady as well as "Machiavellian."
"I hate to get into this publicly, but Michael stole a lot of stuff. He stole a lot of songs," said Jones.
Adding fuel to his incendiary interview, Jones also made an unfounded claim that mobster Sam Giancana was responsible for the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy.
"The connection was there between Sinatra and the Mafia and Kennedy. Joe Kennedy — he was a bad man — he came to Frank to have him talk to Giancana about getting votes," Jones claimed.
Tooting his horn further, Jones, who is also a The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee, intoned that the legendary Jimi Hendrix was anxious about playing with his band and chickened out at the last moment. Hendrix is widely considered to be one of the greatest musicians who ever lived.
"He was supposed to play on my album, and he chickened out. He was nervous to play with Toots Thielemans, Herbie Hancock, Hubert Laws, Roland Kirk — those are some scary motherf**kers. Toots was one of the greatest soloists that ever f**king lived.... The cats on my records were the baddest cats in the world and Hendrix didn’t want to play with them."
The outrageous interview got weirder when he placed Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen as a close equal to Jimi Hendrix, in terms of axe power.
"I went on a trip on his yacht, and he had David Crosby, Joe Walsh, Sean Lennon — all those crazy motherf**kers," Jones said. "Then on the last two days, Stevie Wonder came on with his band and made Paul come up and play with him — he’s good, man."
When Vulture Magazine got weary of the former recorder's baseless allegations, they decided to throw a curve-ball and asked him about the sexual assault allegations leveled against his friend, comedian Bill Cosby. Jones had no solid response whatsoever, and evaded the question.
"We can't talk about this in public, man," he said.
