Music giant also calls POTUS’ “limited mentally — a megalomaniac, narcissistic” in wide-ranging Vulture interview
Quincy Jones goes all in in a new interview where he discusses Michael Jackson, who he claims killed JFK, and dating Ivanka Trump.
In the Vulture interview, the legendary record producer called Donald Trump a “crazy motherf—er. Limited mentally — a megalomaniac, narcissistic. I can’t stand him. I used to date Ivanka, you know.”
He continued, “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 motherf—er.’ She had the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though.”
Jones also doesn’t think his friend Oprah Winfrey should run for president.
“If you haven’t been governor of a state of the CEO of a company or a military general, you don’t know how to lead people,” he said.
Jones saved his sharpest criticism for President Trump. “A symphony conductor knows more about how to lead than most businesspeople — more than Trump does. He doesn’t know s—. Someone who knows about real leadership wouldn’t have as many people against him as he does. He’s a f—ing idiot,” he said.
Also in the interview, Jones, who co-produced Jackson’s biggest-selling albums, said the pop star “stole a lot of songs” and had plastic surgery because his father “told him he was ugly,” although he tried to “justify it and say it was because of some disease he had.”
Jones said Chicago mobster Sam Giancana killed Kennedy, but that he can’t “talk about this publicly.” His first impression of the Beatles was that “they were the worst musicians in the world,” and praised artists like Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar and Sam Smith for doing good things in the music industry today.
Regarding accusations against his friend Bill Cosby, the producer said, “What about it? We can’t talk about this in public, man,” but had no problem calling out “Brett Ratner. [Harvey] Weinstein. Weinstein — he’s a jive motherf—er. Wouldn’t return my five calls. A bully.
