Quincy Jones, the legendary music producer and arranger behind Michael Jackson’s Thriller and Off The Wall, recently sat down for an interview with Vulture‘s David Marchese and promptly spilled enough tea to cover the whole damn Boston Harbor. (History nerds, that was for you.)
In the interview, Jones divulged outrageous details about his celebrity friends and acquaintances. He revealed that Marlon Brando had sex with Richard Pryor (an anecdote which was later confirmed by Pryor’s widow), claimed to have gone on a date with Ivanka Trump in 2006 (though whether Ivanka thought said dinner was a “date” is up for speculation), and trashed the Beatles’ musical ability, calling the group the “worst musicians in the world” and “no-playing motherf*ckers.”
Quincy Jones knows who killed Kennedy. He once dated Ivanka Trump. He knows Hillary Clinton's secrets. "All I’ve ever done is tell the truth. I’ve got nothing to be scared of, man." https://t.co/5RkrT0wYfu

Oh, and he also claimed to know that the mob was responsible for JFK’s assassination.
Needless to say, people found the entire interview to be both off-putting and vastly entertaining — particularly when the revelation about Marlon Brando’s sexual exploits was corroborated.
Twitter was absolutely beside itself over Quincy dropping such explosive “truth” bombs.
