In a recent New York Magazine interview, superstar music producer Quincy Jones revealed a ton of juicy secrets of the music and entertainment industry that not only shocked plenty of readers, but had a surprising number of people coming forward to actually back up his statements.
From his brutally honest comments about working with Michael Jackson:
"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."
To his ESPECIALLY brutal comments on The Beatles:
"That they were the worst musicians in the world. They were no-playing motherf***ers. Paul was the worst bass player I ever heard. And Ringo? Don’t even talk about it."
To even the current conditions of the United States as a whole:
"We’re the worst we’ve ever been, but that’s why we’re seeing people try and fix it. Feminism: Women are saying they’re not going to take it anymore. Racism: People are fighting it. God is pushing the bad in our face to make people fight back."
However, one of his comments that caught a lot of people off guard was to do with the sex life of a particularly famous actor: Marlon Brando. To quote Jones:
"He was the most charming motherf***er you ever met. He’d f*** anything. Anything! He’d f*** a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye."
Well as it turns out, at least one of those stories might actually be true, but that's being heavily debated by members of Pryor's family...
