Quincy Jones Apologizes For 'Silly' Statements, Thanks Daughters For Calling Him Out

 

Close

Quincy Jones just apologized for the things he said during his previous interview. The music producer revealed that his six daughters spoke with him, and they made him realize his mistakes.

On his Twitter account, the 84-year-old musician said that he is extremely proud of his children for standing up to him. Jones also acknowledged the fact that he is not perfect, and he apologized to those he might have offended.

In his lengthy post, Jones explained that the things he recently said contradicted his stand on racism, inequality, homophobia, and poverty. The producer did not mention Michael Jackson in his post, but he addressed his friends who are still with him, as well as those who have already passed on and said that they are like family.

"To my dear family & friends... thank you for your grace. Thank you for calling me out when I've clearly made a mistake... many mistakes. Even though sometimes it's difficult to receive criticism or discipline (especially publicly), I want you to know I hear you," wrote Jones.

Quincy Jones Slams Taylor Swift, T-Pain

Last month, Jones criticized Taylor Swift and said that he is not a fan of her songs. He also said that he is not interested to collaborate with the 28-year-old singer.

One week later, Jones said that he is not impressed with T-Pain's cover of "P.Y.T." The singer fired back and said that he is aware that his cover of the song did not turn out well. T-Pain also said that he is upset at Jones for not giving him proper direction when he was recording the track at the studio.

Joe Jackson Defends His Son

Jones also accused Michael of stealing Donna Summer's song "State of Independence," as well as using the tune for his hit song "Billie Jean." He also slammed the late singer for his decision to undergo plastic surgery.

Weeks later, Michael's dad, Joe Jackson, came to his son's defense and said that Jones was just jealous of the "Thriller" singer.

"He says my son stole it, but he was the producer on both ['Billie Jean' and 'State of Independence'], so if anybody is wrong, it would be Quincy," said Joe.

One member of the Jackson family also said that Jones had a vendetta against Michael. It all started after Michael went straight to the heads of the Grammy Awards years ago and told them that Jones should not receive an award for "Thriller."
