Black History Month just got a little Blacker and more historical with the cast announcement for the upcoming Oprah Winfrey-produced movie musical The Color Purple which is based on the hit Broadway musical which was based on Steven Spielberg’s Quincy Jones produced-and-scored 1985 movie which was based on Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning 1982 novel. Of course, soon-to-be household name Oprah co-starred in the movie playing Sofia and now, almost 40 years later, she’s calling Danielle Brooks on the phone and yelling “Sofia, So-FEEE-AAHHHHH!! It’s your day!” Then she probably called up Fantasia, Colman Domingo, Taraji P. Henson, Halle Bailey, Corey Hawkins, and H.E.R. and was all “And YOU GET PART and YOU GET A PART and YOU GET A PART!!!” because they did, they all got parts.
Old LLQJ (that’s Loose Lips Quincy Jones) is at it again, flapping his gums and telling stories out of school. I wish I could take credit for coining LLQJ, but that’s the name his daughters gave him after his last string of interviews landed him in hot water. And what does a legend do when they find themselves with a surplus of hot water? Well, he makes his apologies and then pours another serving of tea. The tea’s not quite as hot as this round (hard to top Marlon Brando and Richard Pryor, just ask Marvin Gaye) but tasty all the same. In the first installment of The Hollywood Reporter’s Icon series of interviews, 88-year-old Quincy claims that he refused to work with Elvis Presley because Elvis was “a racist mother…” which is not nearly as surprising as finding out that Marie Osmond had a big ole’ ass. Two lumps, lots of lemon for me, thanks Q.
The future of print media looked bright a couple of weeks ago. Sure, circulation is down, but a solution had emerged: every magazine and newspaper article forward needed to involve Quincy Jones. Pawpaw Quincy may be 84, but with old age comes fewer and fewer fucks to give. He said he dated Ivanka Trump, made Marlon Brando leap up the gay charts after saying he fucked Richard Pryor and likely set the record for how many times “motherfucker” appeared in a single sitting. Sadly, it sounds like Quincy wants to take it all back. Continue reading
Rain Pryor isn’t the only one pissed off at Quincy Jones for talking out of school about Richard Pryor and Marlon Brando doing the last horizontal tango in Hollywood. Miko Brando, Marlon’s eldest living son (and former HSOTW!) has told TMZ that Quincy is full of shit. But in a nice way.
When tea spilling pepaw Quincy Jones let it slip that Marlon Brando used to get his swerve on with Richard Pryor, everybody in my circles gave Richard a posthumous tip of the hat for pulling that hot piece (of course, we were all picturing Streetcar Marlon when it really would have been more like Last Tango Marlon but please just let us have this). Sadly, Richard’s own daughter, Head of The Class actress Rain Pryor, wasn’t so pleased about this news coming out and so she posted a couple of lengthy screeds to FB denouncing Quincy for tainting her father’s legacy for fun and profit. She also came after Richard’s widow Jennifer for confirming the rumors, calling her a “bottom feeder”.
Quincy Jones Says He Dated Ivanka Trump 12 Years Ago, And Knows That Marlon Brando Boned Richard Pryor (UPDATE)
Okay, who’s going to make the, “Trump, smell your daughter on these fingers,” joke about that pic?
Horny ole’ bag of endless tea Quincy Jones already took us for a wild ride during his GQ interview when he bragged about having 22 girlfriends, said he watched the nutsack of Ray Charles get shot up with heroin, and claimed that Marilyn Monroe was interested in getting with him but he turned her down. (I know, everything that comes out of Quincy’s talk hole should be certified as a lie for telling that fairy tale about Marilyn Monroe.)
Quincy is back with another wild interview where he claims he dated Trump’s favorite child, alludes to knowing who REALLY killed JFK and provided me with some good vintage fap material by saying that a young Marlon Brando fucked Marvin Gaye and Richard Pryor. 2018 is bringing the surprises, because who knew that Quincy Jones of all people would turn out to be my favorite neighborhood gossip. Benita Butrell, who?
