UNITED NEWS INTERNATIONAL (UNI) — Record producer Quincy Jones went all out in an interview with a New York magazine promoting an upcoming Netflix documentary about him.
He shares his opinions on The Beatles, U.S. President Donald Trump and today’s music industry in the article published Feb. 7.
Jones, 84, founded Qwest Productions in 1975, which turned out albums for big artists like Frank Sinatra.
Recalling his long career in the entertainment industry, Jones alleged actor Marlon Brando had a sexual relationship with comedian Richard Pryor.
Pryor’s widow later confirmed the story to TMZ.
Jones also said he is not a fan of The Beatles, stating he thinks its members like Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney did not know how to play instruments.
When asked about Trump, Jones called him “narcissistic” and said he used to date Trump’s daughter and White House advisor, Ivanka Trump.
Jones plans to launch Qwest TV in the near future, which would showcase jazz music in a video-streaming format.
