Quincy Jones may be 84-years-old, but he from what he said in a recent interview, he’s been getting it in more than most people a quarter of his age. In his interview with GQ during Grammys weekend, he slammed pop superstar Taylor Swift for making hooks and not songs; he said that Oprah “dramatizes everything” and revealed that Michael Jackson’s famous pet chimp, Bubbles, bit his daughter, actress Rashida Jones. However, Jones’ comments about his personal love life have taken over headlines today.
During the interview, Jones (who has been married three times) claimed that he had 22 girlfriends around the world. “I got 22 girlfriends . . . Everywhere. Cape Town. Cairo. Stockholm — she’s coming in next week. Brazil — Belo Horizonte, São Paulo and Rio. Shanghai — got a great girl over there from Shanghai, man. Cairo, whew.”
Jones, who referred to himself as a “dog,” said there’s no way he’ll date a woman his own age. “For what, man? There’s nothing . . . No upside. You gotta be kidding. I got me some technology [at his mansion] that keep fat and old away from here. Buzzes if they’re too old,” he said. “But you’d be surprised . . . These women, the young ones, are aggressive now. Oh, my God, they’re fearless, man. All over the world.”
Well damn, Mr. Jones. The legendary music producer brings new meaning to the phrase “age ain’t nthin’ but a number.”
