Musical genius Quincy Jones has given an interview to Vulture Magazine that EVERYONE is talking about. The icon gave the appearance of a man void of fucks and ready to spill all the tea, and to the basics it worked. But I am not basic and I actually found myself even more disillusioned with the controversial musician as I was before reading. What appeared to be a candid and frank interview came off {To Me} as the ramblings of an old jennywoman trying to get attention for telling everyone’s business but his own. Specifically where he went on about the dead black male celebrities Marlon Brando had sexy with.


“You better smolder bih!”

Now there was WAY too much mess in this interview to address in one blog. I’m gonna have to break it up starting with the issue I found somewhat problematic. The fact that he felt so comfortable spilling his celebrity friend’s gay and bisexual adventures without addressing his own.

They look like they been having some good sex.

An Excerpt from Vulture:

You’re talking about business not music, but, and I mean this respectfully, don’t some of your thoughts about music fall under the category of “back in my day”?
Musical principles exist, man. Musicians today can’t go all the way with the music because they haven’t done their homework with the left brain. Music is emotion and science. You don’t have to practice emotion because that comes naturally. Technique is different. If you can’t get your finger between three and four and seven and eight on a piano, you can’t play. You can only get so far without technique. People limit themselves musically, man. Do these musicians know tango? Macumba? Yoruba music? Samba? Bossa nova? Salsa? Cha-cha?

Maybe not the cha-cha.
[Marlon] BrandoThe actor and Jones were longtime friends. During a down period in Jones’s life, he spent time on the island in Tahiti which Brando owned. The two called each other Leroy, owing to a story recounted extremely well (one among many) in this recent GQ profile. used to go cha-cha dancing with us. He could dance his ass off. He was the most charming motherfucker you ever met. He’d fuck anything. Anything! He’d fuck a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.

He slept with them? How do you know that?
[Frowns.] Come on, man. He did not give a fuck! You like Brazilian music?

Sounds scandalous, but most od it is old tea since James Baldwin is a known homosexual and Richard Pryor was open about his bisexuality…even if the public didn’t believe his stories of it in early standup. His widow Jennifer confirmed the fling to TMZ.

Jennifer tells TMZ … Richard would have no shame about Quincy’s comments. She says the comedic legend was always very open about his bisexuality with friends, and documented it extensively in diaries. Jennifer says she’ll publish them later this year.

As for Richard hooking up with Brando — she says, “It was the ’70s! Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you’d f*** a radiator and send it flowers in the morning.”

{She’s right tho. Kinda reminds me of the turn of the century when the ecstacy was at its best again. We were all getting along too well so the government shut it down and flooded the streets with that trash “Molly” and everyone got back on antisocial ass cocaine. {Drug Qulture is a real thing. It’s the TYPE of drug the government puts on the street that’s the problem}

Jennifer says she has no doubt Richard would be cracking up if he heard Quincy spilling the tea.

Hey, I have no problem with Quincy spilling old tea we already knew anyway. He could have let Marvin’s name rest, but I’m cool with open sexuality between consenting adults. I do however have issue with folks spilling all the gay kids’ tea while keeping their’s to themselves. 

Quincy has had gay rumors surrounding him for decades. And not just gay, but the exploitation of the young musicians around him and his vindictiveness towards those that rebuff his advances. He’s rumored to have slept with Michael Jackson, Tevin Campbell, and even of making advances on Tupac while he was “engaged” to his daughter before his death. Why not address any of that gay tea?

But Tevin said nothing happened so I’ll leave it at that. {We know he has bills to pay and can’t ruffle any feathers, so I’m not trying to stop anyone’s bag.

Actually sis they been saying that about you ever since you got caught munching trade in a restroom. As well as everytime your name comes up and folks wonder why you threw away your career, so keep it real cute.

And why when he it comes to spilling tea on those still living he decided to keep mum as was the case when Hillary Clinton and Bill Cosby were brought up? He immediately implied to the interviewer that it wasn’t “safe” to talk about those subjects, so obviously he was very aware of what he was saying. And telling  his dead friends’ gay tea gets people buzzing about him. And it’s more than obvious Quincy loves him some Quincy. 

Why alter the perception of those not here to defend themselves or tell their stories the way they actually happened. Maybe he was good friends with these men and it was more then him just “fucking anything.” Perhaps he’s the one who uses boys and throws them away like that. He gives me one of those power gays that leverages opportunity for peen and affection. 

Or perhaps they were all at a gay sex party together. Having fun. Topping and bottoming and one of the other kids pulled Quincy’s man. That happens you know. The girls get mad when you pull their trade. Quincy’s talented but he’s never had much of a body. He mighta felt some typa way everyone was getting a ride on Marlon’s Brando and he didn’t, or maybe he got dickmatized and didn’t like his trade sharing. Who knows? What I DO know is that the straight kids never have THIS much gay tea.

Either way…we’ll be addressing more aspects of this interview throughout the day.

Till then… did you think old Quincy was being an “outspoken old man with no fucks” or a “shady old jennywoman?
