Quincy Jones Says Michael Jackson Didn't Want to be Black

July 2, 2009

In a recent interview with Details magazine, Michael Jackson’s long-time producer and friend Quincy Jones opened up about a number of intimate subjects regarding to the King of Pop.

Jones tackled a slew of Jackson-related topics including the time Michael’s famous chimp pal Bubbles violently bit his daughter Rashida Jones. Quincy told Details that “Michael used to bring Muscles (MJ’s boa constrictor) and Bubbles by the house all the time” and that Bubbles even bit a hole in his daughter's hand. Bubbles is no joke!

The most interesting chunk of the piece had to be when the interviewer started asking questions about Michael’s odd appearance:

Q: But it must've been so disturbing to see Michael's face turn into what it turned into.
A: It's ridiculous, man! Chemical peels and all of it. And I don't understand it. But he obviously didn't want to be black.
Q: Is that what it was?
A: Well, what do you think? You see his kids?

Hot damn, Quincy! Don’t hold back, buddy.
