Quincy Jones accuses Michael Jackson of plagiarism
Written by Keshia Jansen on February 8, 2018
American record producer Quincy Jones says that Michael Jackson “stole a lot of songs.”
In an interview with Vulture, Quincy explained that there were a lot of similarities between Donna Summer’s State of Independence and Jackson’s legendary track Billie Jean.
“The notes don’t lie, man. He was as Machiavellian as they come,” said Quincy.
Quincy also says that Jackson was greedy.
He told Vulture that Jackson and Greg Phillinganes had collaborated on the song Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough. However, Jackson refused to give him 10% of the credit.
Referring to the plastic surgery, Quincy says that Jackson did not accept his own appearance because “his father told him he was ugly and abused him.”
Qunicy concludes that “it doesn’t matter if you’re famous,” that drugs can affect everyone.
He explains that Jackson’s fatal flaw was Propofol, a sedative that Jackson had been using to deal with his insomnia.
After his death, it emerged that “acute Propofol intoxication” was the cause of Jackson’s death in 2009.
