Interviewer David Marchese provides insight to his incredible interview with Quincy Jones.
The Internet was in a frenzy yesterday after a published interview with Quincy Jones surfaced. While everyone's been reading the interview with their jaws dropped, you could only imagine how it would've been like actually hearing these things come out of Q's mouth. David Marchese, who conducted the interview, said that the interview was a PG-13 version of their conversation.
Marchese spilled the tea on his interview with Quincy Jones earlier this morning with Buzzfeed. He explained that there were many parts during his conversation with Quincy Jones that caught him off guard but he started realizing which direction this interview was going when he brought up the question about Michael Jackson.
"I think, you know, I asked what I thought was a pretty generic question about Michael Jackson, about, you know, something that people don't get about Michael Jackson, thinking that he would say 'he was a better songwriter than he's given credit for' or something like that. Then he's like 'yeah, he stole songs' and I was like huh, so that's how this is going to go," he said.
He later explained that there was much more to the conversation than what was actually published.
"I don't even know if I want to get into this too much. You know, this is like the PG-13 version of how the conversation actually went. There was stuff said that I was like, this is not, I can not, I'm not going to wade into these waters. So there was of like jaw-dropping moments."
He also elaborated on Quincy Jones' extensive use of the word "motherfucker" and how he was unsure if Q was using it playfully or meant it with disdain.
