In an interview with Vulture consisting of the sort of compact weaves that made the Coney Island Cyclone a New York City landmark, among music’s most prominent figures (his name alone is a monolith of the market), Quincy Jones, shares his ideas on practically whatever and everybody he’s come across in his 85 packed years on this world.
He calls Michael Jackson a tune burglar. Due to the fact that of her dangly precious jewelry, (“He was as Machiavellian as they come.”) He declares Cyndi Lauper almost messed up “We Are the World”. (“…She was fucking up every take because her necklace or bracelet was rattling in the microphone.”) He takes a shit on The Beatles. (“…They were the worst musicians in the world.”) He takes an even larger shit on U2:
But Jones has far mar to go over than simply the music market. He provides his ideas on exactly what takes place after death. (“Nothing.”) He calls out the Clintons for their relationship to “Big Pharma.” He declares John F. Kennedy was eliminated by a Chicago mobster called Sam Giancana prior to choosing to ask job interviewer David Marchese where he’s from. (Toronto.) He blames “Trump and uneducated rednecks” for empowering our country’s racists instantly prior to extoling dating Ivanka, “a fine motherfucker,” 12 years back. (“She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life.”)
And then, oh my god, this!
JONES: [Marlon Brando] utilized to go cha-cha dancing with us. He might dance his ass off. He was the most captivating motherfucker you ever fulfilled. He ‘d fuck anything. Anything! He ‘d fuck a mail box. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.
VULTURE: He slept with them? How do you understand that?
JONES: [Frowns.] Come on, man. He did not offer a fuck! You like Brazilian music?
Yes. After exposing the supposed sexual adventures of a few of the most prominent and popular guys of the mid-twentieth century, Jones segued into another subject by stating, “You like Brazilian music?” (I’m going to take that relocation, I believe.) It’s simply one of the many abrupt turns this interview takes. (The one turn it does not take is towards Bill Cosby.)
