Quincy Jones is one of the greatest and most
influential people in music. He is one of the greatest producers,
entrepreneurs and more who paved the way for hundreds of artist
over the years. Still, with all of Jones accomplishments, it seems
that he still has no plan on stopping or
This is basically what the soon to 85 years old
told the guys at GQ anyway. Jones stated that he plans on to live
at least to the age of 110. Jones revealed that he was going
through some treatments he's been undergoing at an exclusive
hospital in Stockholm, Sweden for six days each
Jones who again is one of the most prolific
figures in music talked about Taylor Swift and the music of today.
Jones stated: "We need more songs, man," the mega-producer said.
"Fucking songs, not hooks." "Knowing what you're doing. You know
what I mean?" he said. "Since I was a little kid, I've always heard

But on the other hand, there are many artists
that Jones see a strong future with and these artists are currently
the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars, Drake, Ludacris, Mary J.
Blige, Common and Jennifer Hudon.
Jones also talked about having at least 22
girlfriends all across the globe. "Hell yeah. Everywhere," he said.
"Cape Town. Cairo. Stockholm – she's coming in next week. Brazil –
Belo Horizonte, São Paulo, and Rio. Shanghai – got a great girl

"Yeah, I don't lie," he said. "And it's amazing – women get it,
man. Don't you ever forget they're 13 years smarter than we are?

different footwear on.
"He had on some burgundy wingtips, man, with thin

"We had to go and kiss his hand before we left.
And when I kissed his hand, I looked down and saw those shoes and
