World-renowned industry titan Quincy Jones apparently held back no punches in a recent interview with Vulture as he dissed The Beatles, outed the private sexual male partners of actor Marlon Brando, accused the late Michael Jackson of stealing concepts, and claimed he once dated Ivanka Trump, along with other things. To say that Jones, 84, had any cares left to give is an understatement. He dropped bombshells that went viral across the internet, leaving many to question some of their longtime faves.

To tell you the truth, when that crazy creature named Bruno told me that we might have the chance to interview Clive Jones, the first thing I thought was: impossible! This should be a joke! The millenium's hoax! But I was wrong, and when I realized that it was the truth, I felt happy like a baby!
Edgar Hoover led a deeply repressed sexual life, living with his mother until he was 40, awkwardly rejecting the attention of women and pouring his emotional, and at times, physical attention on his handsome deputy at the FBI, according to the new movie, "J. Edgar," directed by Clint Eastwood. Filmgoers never see the decades-long romance between the former FBI director, and his number two, Clyde Tolson, consummated, but there's plenty of loving glances, hand-holding and one scene with an aggressive, long, deep kiss. So was the most powerful man in America, who died in -- three years after the Stonewall riots marked the modern gay civil rights movement -- homosexual? I am agnostic about it.
