Quincy Jones Spills HOT Tea On Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye, Richard Pryor And More

You know how they say “old people say ANYTHING out their mouths and don’t care who has a problem with it.” Well, the tea the legendary Quincy Jones spilled in a recent interview with Vulture has the dearly departed turning over in their graves, loved ones angry AF and many of us clutching our pearls. From the King of Pop Michael Jackson, to the crooning Marvin Gaye, to the late, great Richard Pryor, Quincy Jones had not a single care in the world. I guess the 28-time Grammy Award winner has seen it and done it all in his 84 years.

“All I’ve ever done is tell the truth. I’ve got nothing to be scared of, man,” Jones said.

Jones boldly told Vulture’s David Marchese Michael Jackson was infamous for stealing music.

You worked with Michael Jackson more than anyone he wasn’t related to. What’s something people don’t understand about him?

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.

How so?

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.

He went on to talk about his relationship with The Clintons.

You just mentioned the Clintons, who are friends of yours. Why is there still such visceral dislike of them? What are other people not seeing in Hillary, for example, that you see?
It’s because there’s a side of her — when you keep secrets, they backfire.

Like what secrets?
This is something else I shouldn’t be talking about.

You sure seem to know a lot.
I know too much, man.

He even dropped the name of who he believes killed Kennedy. I’m too shook to quote that but you can read it for yourself.

Somehow the conversation went left and he started discussing Marlon Brando and his sexcapades.

[Marlon] Brando used to go cha-cha dancing with us. He could dance his ass off. He was the most charming motherfucker you ever met. He’d fuck anything. Anything! He’d fuck a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.

He slept with them? How do you know that

[Frowns.] Come on, man. He did not give a fuck!

I’m sure his daughter Kidada is shaking her head, like most people who read this interview but she knows her dad more than any of us. I’m sure in the coming days, there will be a lot of backlash. Stay tuned.

There’s so much more the music legend revealed but we would be here all day. Read the interview for yourself. You will be highly entertained.
