At the age of 84, Quincy Jones still has enough women in his life to make any young playboy jealous. The man behind Michael Jackson’s Thriller recently admitted in an interview with GQ that he has a total of 22 girlfriends, all between the ages of 28 and 42.
“I was married three times, man. Was told not to marry actresses or singers. I ended up with two actresses, Peggy Lipton and Nastassja Kinski, and a superstar model. I didn’t listen to all the advice.”
As a free man, Jones has quite a few women in waiting, saying they reside all over the world and know about each other.
“[They’re] 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…I don’t lie. And it’s amazing—women get it, man.”
After admitting his daughters convinced him not to date women younger than they are, he’s still against giving women his own age a chance.
@stellamccartney keeps it poppin! And don’t think I didn’t see U & Nancy out there dancin’ last night, @paulmccartney. ((:0)) Man, y’awl are family & there ain’t no doubt about that!! Paul, I still got that chart you sent me about vitamins/fruits/seeds when you hopped on that vegan train. Absolutely love it…I still got it hanging in the kitchen! It’s been such a joy to see our rugrats grow up & discover themselves. We’ve come a long way, but I feel like we’re just gettin’ started! It’s truly an honor to have had our kids grow up together & to have such real people by our side. Congratulations on your new line my baby Stella… @rashidajones & I had a great time last night!…All my love. #StellaMccartney #StellasWorld

“Hell no! You see me with an 84-year-old woman? Are you crazy? There’s nothing…there’s no upside. You gotta be kidding,” he exclaimed. “I got me some technology out there”—he gestures to the mansion’s perimeter—”that keep fat and old away from here. Buzzes if they’re too old. But you’d be surprised.… These women, the young ones, are aggressive now. Oh my God, they’re fearless, man. All over the world.”
