Quincy Jones recently made headlines for essentially “spilling the beans” during his recent interviews. Mainly his Q&A with Vulture, where discussed a plethora of topics from Micheal Jackson’s surgeries to Richard Pryor’s sexual preferences. Now the music legend has come forward with an apology. According to a statement he released via Twitter, Jones had a family intervention with his daughters to discuss his “word vomit.”
He admits that he had a “long and crazy life” and that he also stopped drinking about three years ago. He went on to say that at 85-years of age, all of his memories came back at once.
Part of the statement reads: I’m sorry to anyone whom my words offended & I am especially sorry to my friends who are still here and to those who aren’t”. Jones says that he apologized privately to certain people (and their families) but wanted to issue a public apology.
