He’s been in the business for a long time, and there’s no doubt he’s seen, heard and experienced a lot. The 85-year old dished on everything from the JFK assassination to who Marlon Brando was f**kin. At some points in the interview, he’d say he shouldn’t be talking about a particular topic in public.
On the music tip, he was critical of many he worked with. He said U2 doesn’t make good music anymore, Michael Jackson was a greedy theif, T-Pain’s tribute to the pop star sucked, The Beatles also sucked and that iconic comedian Richard Pryor had sex with actor Marlon Brando.
And that’s just part of it.
Coincidentally, when asked about it T-Pain agreed that he botched the song. But added he thinks QJ might just be mad at the whole world.
Here’s a quick excerpt from the interview with Vulture.
[Marlon] Brando 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.
Quincy currently has a new Netflix documentary and CBS special hosted by Oprah Winfrey on the way.
