It's so much fun when celebrities get old and crazy. 84 year old Quincy Jones has certainly been speaking his mind lately. He had a few choice words about Taylor Swift in a recent “GQ” interview, and now in a sit-down with "New York Magazine," he shares his thoughts on The Beatles, and they are also not very nice.
Asked what his first thoughts about the Beatles, Quincy remarked, “they were the worst musicians in the world. They were no-playing mother**kers,” sharing, “Paul (McCartney) was the worst bass player I ever heard. And Ringo (Starr)? Don’t even talk about it." He goes on to tell a story about how Ringo once had trouble figuring out a drum part, so Quincy suggested he go out for a beer and a bite to eat. While Ringo was gone, they brought in another drummer to play the part. When Ringo came back, they played back the tracks with the new drummer and Ringo says "Hey, that's not bad." Jones replied "Yeah... cause that ain't you, Moth*****er." (Apparently he uses that word ALOT.)
And the Beatles aren’t the only musicians he rips apart in the article. He also shares that Michael Jackson, “stole a lot of stuff,” calling him “greedy,” and adding, “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.”
But those weren’t the only salacious comments to come out of Quincy’s mouth. For example:
He claimed he dated Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka 12 years ago. (Oh sure, who couldn't believe that?!) “TommyHilfiger, who was working with my daughter Kidada said, ‘Ivanka wants to have dinner with you.’ I said, 'No problem. She’s a fine mother**ker.' She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though.” He also claimed to know who killed Kennedy. “[Chicago mobster Sam] Giancana. The connection was there between Sinatra and the Mafia and Kennedy," he says. "Joe Kennedy — he was a bad man — he came to Frank to have him talk to Giancana about getting votes.”
