It’s not too late to say sorry, and Quincy Jones took advantage of that fact following his contentious interview with GQ and Vulture recently. Celebrity Insider reported last week that the acclaimed producer had some unsavory words for stars such as Richard Pryor, Marlon Brando, Michael Jackson, and The Beatles.
On the 22nd of February, Wednesday, Quincy took to his platform on Twitter to apologize for talking about Michael and The Beatles as well as the artists mentioned above.
Quincy, in summation, said his family took him aside and talked about his controversial words which he shared with the two publications.
Jones said, “I’ve learned my lesson!” The 84-year-old is apparently not above apologizing considering his age, so one has to commend him for that.
The Grammy Award-winner went on to say that he’s not a perfect human being and “isn’t afraid to say it.” The mogul alleged to GQ and Vulture earlier in the month that he didn’t like The Beatles or anyone else for that matter.

Additionally, the star said he “used to date” Ivanka Trump, the daughter of the contentious president, Donald Trump. Jones joked that he has “twenty-two girlfriends” all over the globe.
Furthermore, the producer said he apologized to his friends and family whom he may have embarrassed in the process. He wrote, “thank you for calling me out when I’ve clearly made a mistake.”
As you may know, Rain Pryor took to Facebook to refute the claims perpetuated by Quincy, notably, that her father was a closeted gay man. Rain said it was self-evident that the producer had “lost his mind” due to age and the sensationalized interview demonstrated that.
