Quincy Jones Apologizes For Controversial Interview (That Set The Internet On Fire)

0 No tags Permalink

Quincy Jones has decided to come from behind the curtain and address his controversial interview with Vulture magazine that was released this month!

In the piece, the legendary music producer accused Richard Pryor, Marlon Brando and Marvin Gaye of being bi-sexual, having a relationship with White House Senior Advisor Ivanka Trump, some controversial Michael Jackson comments and more!

He is now apologizing for his “wordvomit” following a “surprise family intervention” staged by his daughters.

“A couple weekends ago, my six daughters (who I’m beyond proud of) took me aside to do a surprise ‘family intervention’ because of some silly things I’ve said in two recent interviews &…I have LEARNED MY LESSON!” he begins in a lengthy statement via social media. “Let me tell you, I’m so grateful for my daughters because they aren’t scared to stand up to their daddy. I am an imperfect human & I’m not afraid to say it. And I’m sorry & I’m not afraid to say it.”

“When you’ve been fortunate enough to have lived such a long & crazy life (& you’ve recently stopped drinking — three years ago!), certain details about specific events (which do NOT paint the full picture of my intentions nor experiences) come flooding back all at once,” he wrote. “Even at 85, it’s apparent that ‘wordvomit’ & badmouthing has contradicted the very real messages I tried to relay about racism, inequality, homophobia, poverty…you name it. And of course I don’t want that.”

“I’m sorry to anyone whom my words offended & I’m especially sorry to my friends who are still here with me & to those who aren’t,” he added.

PS – I wonder have Rashida, Kidada and the crew have taken his phones and laptops away?
