Quincy Jones speaks candidly about his experiences in the music industry.
Quincy Jones is one of the most legendary living figures in music and with all the experience in his life, you could only imagine the type of stories he has. He's worked heavily alongside Michael Jackson on some of his biggest albums, Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra and numerous others. He's had better insight to the lives of the celebrities we often put on a pedestal and in a recent interview, he spoke his full truth pertaining to various subjects including Michael Jackson and Ivanka Trump.
Quincy Jones recently sat down with Vulture for a candid interview. The legendary producer revealed a whole lot about his relationship with Michael Jackson and his alleged Machiavellian approach to making music. Jones claims that Jackson actually stole a lot of music and that he had some pretty shady business practices while in the industry.
"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." He said, "He was as Machavellian as they come."
He also revealed that Jackson also didn't give Greg Phillinganes, keyboardist on "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough," any percentage of the song.
Later in the interview, he also revealed that he once dated Ivanka Trump.
"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 motherfucker." She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though."
Quincy Jones has definitely experienced a lot in his lifetime. He's slated to release an upcoming documentary on Netflix in the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for that.
