Quincy Jones Apologizes for Controversial Claims in Recent Interviews: 'I Am An Imperfect Human'

Quincy Jones has issued an apology following the publication of controversial interviews, in which he made several bombshell statements, including the allegation that Michael Jackson “stole a lot of songs” and that he once dated Ivanka Trump.

The legendary Thriller producer issued a statement on Thursday (February 22) following a “surprise family intervention.”

“A couple weekends ago, my six daughters (who I’m beyond proud of) took me aside to do a surprise ‘family intervention’ because of some silly things I’ve said in two recent interviews &…I have LEARNED MY LESSON! Let me tell you, I’m so grateful for my daughters because they aren’t scared to stand up to their daddy. I am an imperfect human & I’m not afraid to say it. And I’m sorry & I’m not afraid to say it,” he wrote.

“Even at 85, it’s apparent that ‘wordvomit’ & badmouthing has contradicted the very real messages I tried to relay about racism, inequality, homophobia, poverty…you name it. And of course I don’t want that.”

“I’m sorry to anyone whom my words offended & I’m especially sorry to my friends who are still here with me & to those who aren’t,” he added.

“Love, an 85 year old bow-legged man who is still learning and growing from his mistakes.”

Brendan Fraser Says He Was Sexually Assaulted by Former HFPA President

Brendan Fraser Says He Was Sexually Assaulted by Former HFPA President

Brendan Fraser says that he was sexually assaulted by Philip Berk, the former president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

If you didn’t know, the HFPA is the group that votes for the Golden Globes each year.

Brendan told GQ that the incident happened in the summer of 2003 at the Beverly Hills Hotel. When Brendan reached out to shake Philip‘s hand, the man reached around and assaulted him.

“His left hand reaches around, grabs my ass cheek, and one of his fingers touches me in the taint. And he starts moving it around,” Brendan told GQ. Berk claims that he just “pinched” his ass in jest.

“I felt ill. I felt like a little kid. I felt like there was a ball in my throat. I thought I was going to cry,” Brendan said, though he decided to not go public. “I didn’t want to contend with how that made me feel, or it becoming part of my narrative.”

Fraser‘s reps asked the HFPA for a written apology and Berk admits that he wrote one. “My apology admitted no wrongdoing, the usual ‘If I’ve done anything that upset Mr. Fraser, it was not intended and I apologize,’” he said.

Brendan said the incident made him retreat and “feel reclusive.” He also wonders if his career was derailed by the HFPA. “I don’t know if this curried disfavor with the group, with the HFPA. But the silence was deafening,” he said.

Broadway's 'Frozen' Debuts New Elsa Song 'Monster' Performed by Caissie Levy!

Disney’s brand-new Broadway musical Frozen begins preview performances TONIGHT (February 22) and a new song from the show just debuted!

Caissie Levy sings the power ballad “Monster” as Elsa at the end of the second act and you can watch her amazing performance thanks to The New York Times.

“It’s a moment of anxiety where the freedom she found in ‘Let It Go’ is shaken, and she hears in the distance the voices of the men coming for her, and she realizes now is the time she has to decide what her next move is,” songwriter Robert Lopez said about the song.

Kristen Anderson-Lopez added, “It’s full of conflicting emotions. It’s got fear. It’s got rage. It’s got her self-flagellation. It’s someone who has been living a double life of secrets and shame that no one knows about, and this is the moment of reckoning with all the destruction that she left behind her.”
