Quincy Jones says he is sorry for all the wild things he said in his recent interviews.
Recall that the legendary music producer shocked the world with his Vulture interview in which he dismissed the Beatles as the worst musicians in the world, accused Michael Jackson of stealing songs, claimed he bought drugs from Malcolm X, that he once dated Ivanka Trump; and many other wilds things which set the internet on fire for days.
Now, he is apologising “to anyone whom [his] words offended.”
“I have LEARNED MY LESSON! Let me tell you, I’m so grateful for my daughters because they aren’t scared to stand up to their daddy. I am an imperfect human & I’m not afraid to say it. And I’m sorry & I’m not afraid to say it,” said the legend in a statement shared on his Twitter.
“One of the hardest things about the situation is that, this bad-mouthing has contradicted the very real messages I tried to relay about racism, inequality, homophobia, poverty… you name it. And of course I don’t want that,” he continued, adding, “I encourage you all to please grow with me & keep on keepin’ on. Love, an 85-year-old bow-legged man who is still learning from his mistakes.”
And he said more. Read the full note below.
