If you’re reading this, be warned: Quincy Jones doesn’t hold back. The American record producer is famous for working on the world’s best-selling album – Michael Jackson’s Thriller. The 84-year-old who is also an actor (you probably saw him in The Colour Purple) had the most no-holds-barred interview you’ll ever read with entertainment magazine Vulture.

In the tell-all interview, he reveals that he dated Ivanka Trump, calls Michael Jackson greedy, says that he thought the Beatles were the worst musicians in the world, and dishes that late Godfather actor Marlon Brando engaged in drug-fuelled gay sex at different times with comedian Richard Pryor and musician Marvin Gaye.  And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Quincy is like Kenya’s Khaligraph Jones or Shaffie Weru; they deal with spewing zero chills. Nowadays it’s important to speak your mind but Quincy Jones took it to a whole new level. Tweeps had their moment talking about the admiration they have for his confidence… and disgust in equal measure. Musicians Kirk Franklin and Charlamagne Tha god even chipped in.

Well, have you read the interview? What did you make of it? In case you didn’t, here’s the juice.
