Quincy Jones has had a lot to say over the last few weeks. First, he gave a no holds barred interview to GQ magazine, now he’s revealing personal details about his relationship with Michael Jackson and Ivanka Trump in an interview with Vulture.
“I used to date Ivanka, you know. Yes, sir. Twelve years ago,” said Jones. “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 motherf—–r. She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though.”
Afterwards, the reactions on Twitter came pretty swiftly, and some accused Jones of not necessarily lying about Ivanka but possibly being confused about their dinner.
“So, um, just to be clear: Quincy Jones says that when he was 72 and Ivanka Trump was 24 they dated? I just don’t even know where to get started with this,” one person wrote.
“Quincy Jones says he dated Ivanka Trump when he was in his mid-70s and she was in her mid-twenties,” wrote another. “But as a lady who has had invitations to dinner misread, just because he thought it was a date doesn’t mean she did.”
In regards to Jones’ Vulture interview, Ivanka hasn’t commented yet, nor has her father, who may very well go on a Twitter rant about it.
But if the producer’s comments about Ivanka don’t get a huge reaction, his words about Michael Jackson may, because he pretty much called him a thief.
“I hate to get into this publicly, but Michael stole a lot of stuff. He stole a lot of songs,” Jones told Vulture. “[Donna Summer’s] ‘State of Independence’ and ‘Billie Jean.‘ The notes don’t lie, man. He was as Machiavellian as they come … 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.”
Afterwards, the 84-year-old said that he used to fight with Jackson over his plastic surgery, and whenever the singer would say he needed it because of a disease, Jones accused him of lying.
The real reason Jackson changed his face, the producer said, is because his father verbally abused him as a child and called him ugly his entire life.
Jones then talked about the singer’s drug use, since he died from a Propofol overdose in 2009.
“At the end, Michael’s problem was Propofol and that problem affects everyone — doesn’t matter if you’re famous,” he explained. “Big Pharma making OxyContin and all that sh– is a serious thing. I was around the White House for eight years with the Clintons, and I’d learn about how much influence Big Pharma has. It’s no joke.”
