NEW YORK – The legendary music producer Quincy Jones says that twelve years ago he left with Ivanka Trump, the daughter of the president of the United States, Jones was almost 50 years old.
The surprising statement is one of the many that Jones leaves in an interview published on Wednesday by Vulture magazine, which reviews his long career and numerous anecdotes lived with well-known stars of the entertainment world.
“I dated Ivanka, you know?” Says the 85-year-old producer in his response to a question about the current US president.
According to Jones, the alleged relationship took place twelve years ago, after designer Tommy Hilfiger told him that Ivanka wanted to dine with him.
“She had the most beautiful legs I’ve seen in my life. But the wrong father, “says the music entrepreneur, who calls Donald Trump” megalomaniac “and” narcissistic “and considers him” mentally limited. “
Winner of 28 Grammy Awards, Jones is responsible for the production of the best-selling record in the history of music, “Thriller” by Michael Jackson.
Known for having worked with many of the most popular artists of the twentieth century, in the interview he speaks about his experience recording with the Beatles.
“They were the worst musicians in the world,” says Jones. “Paul (McCartney) was the worst bass player I had ever heard. And Ringo (Starr)? Let’s not talk about it. “
Among other curiosities, the producer assures that Michael Jackson “stole” many parts of his songs from other artists and reveals that Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen is a great guitarist.
Throughout the talk, Jones speaks openly about different artists and the world of music today, but also ventures far beyond that area, for example who murdered US President John F. Kennedy.
