Music Legend Tells All In Hilarious New Interview
He’s 84, his career spans more than 60 years and his vision has sculpted the musical legacies of the biggest acts to walk the planet – Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis – so by definition, famed music legend Quincy Jones has reached the point in life we all aspire to: the one where you pretty much say whatever the hell is on your mind, consequences be damned.
A week after skewering Taylor Swift’s songwriting abilities in a wide-ranging interview with GQ, Jones is the #1 trending topic today after his juicy tell-all with Vulture went viral and for good reason: it is w i l d.
He trashes The Beatles (“They were the worst musicians in the world”), called late King of Pop Michael Jackson “greedy,” said he knew who killed President John F. Kennedy (“We shouldn’t talk about this publicly“) – and that’s just the first half! The part that’s making heads swivel, though, is the part where Jones claims to have dated Ivanka Trump – you know, the president’s daughter.
“I used to date Ivanka, you know. Twelve years ago. 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 m———–.” She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life.”
Twitter immediately lit up with some pretty hilarious reactions to that revelation and the interview itself. Check out some of our favorites below:
