All I Want Is to Be 85 Years Old so I Can Give No Fucks Like Quincy Jones

The Vulture interview with Quincy Jones is!

I recommend you read every blessed word. Uncle Quincy is truly legendary in so many ways. He is spilling other peoples tea, in many cases unprompted. That is the blessing of being 85 and rich so if you ever thought he cared… you in the wrong key boo.

If you just want the punchlines and tweet size quotes this Damon Young article and my Diigo highlights of the interview are all you need. However you really should not deny yourself Quincy’s thoughts on

The Beatles…

“They were the worst musicians in the world. They were no-playing motherfuckers.”

and Rock…

“Rock ain’t nothing but a white version of rhythm and blues, motherfucker.”

and the unprompted boiling hot tea that Marlon Brando

“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.
