In a twist that no one saw coming, Quincy Jones has claimed in a new interview that he once dated Ivanka Trump. Time
Music legend Quincy Jones' statements in a new Q&A published Wednesday are eyebrow-raising to say the least.
In an interview with Vulture, the 84-year-old music producer talked about a variety of topics, from Michael Jackson to the Kennedy assassination to Ivanka Trump. Below are some of his most fascinating quotes.
His first impression of The Beatles:
"That they were the worst musicians in the world. They were no-playing (expletive). Paul (McCartney) was the worst bass player I ever heard. And Ringo? Don’t even talk about it."
His thoughts about President Trump:
"I used to hang out with him. He’s a crazy (expletive). Limited mentally — a megalomaniac, narcissistic. I can’t stand him."
His claim of a flame with Ivanka Trump:
"I used to date Ivanka, you know." Elaborating, Jones says, "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 (expletive).' She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though."
How Oprah Winfrey would fare as a president:
"I don’t think she should run. She doesn’t have the chops for it. If you haven’t been governor of a state or the CEO of a company or a military general, you don’t know how to lead people."
What was misunderstood about Michael Jackson:
"I used to kill him about the plastic surgery, man. He’d always justify it and say it was because of some disease he had."
His take on actor Marlon Brando:
"Brando used to go cha-cha dancing with us. He could dance his (expletive) off. He was the most charming (expletive) you ever met. He’d (expletive) anything. Anything!"
Something he wish he didn't "know":
"Who killed Kennedy," Jones says. His theory is that mobster Sam Giancana is to blame. "The connection was there between Sinatra and the Mafia and Kennedy. Joe Kennedy — he was a bad man — he came to Frank to have him talk to Giancana about getting votes," Jones claims.
Jones became a trending topic on Twitter Wednesday after the interview was published. People were understandably shook.
There were also those who thought the interview was "everything."
And one person who had some fun dreaming up a Q&A with Jones.
