The beautiful thing about old age….

The legendary Quincy Jones gave perhaps one of the rawest interviews ever to Vulture’s David Marchese, which was published on Wednesday. At the age of 84, with a birthday next month, Jones gave zero f*cks and shared insightful info on many entertainment icons.

Marlon Brando slept with Richard Pryor, Marvin Gaye, and James Baldwin– a mailbox if possible.

Michael Jackson stole music. Jones described him as “Machiavellian”.

Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar, Chance the Rapper, Ed Sheeran, and Sam Smith are holding the music industry right now.

He, Quincy, used to date Ivanka Trump.

Obviously the “Q” does not stand for “quiet”. Read the full interview here.

Will Smith gets the dad of the year award!

Will Smith celebrated the accomplishment of his son’s, Jaden Smith, new hip-hop album Syre hitting 1 million streams on Spotify with a parody of him lovingly mocking his youngest son’s Icon video. Really, what is not to love about a Black father celebrating his son’s success in such a loving and comical manner?

 

 

Where’s the melanin? 

Archaeologist and world traveler, Josh Gates from Travel Channel’s Expedition Unknown appeared on the TODAY show to reveal the bust of Nefertiti, King Tut’s mother. Gates says that a 3D image of the mummy’s head was done and then given to a forensics team and a “world class reconstruction artist”, stating that sculpture is “spot on”.  However, it looks like they left out some black or brown paint, and Instagram followers took it up on themselves to recreate Elvis to return the favor.

Idris must’ve realized forever is a long time. 

Idris Elba is back off the market again as it was announced this morning that he proposed to his model/actress girlfriend Sabrina Dhowre. Dhowre was Miss Vancouver 2014 and is of Somali descent.

Apparently, Elba popped the question before the premiere of his new film, Yardie, at Rio cinema yesterday. Of course, Dhowre said yes.

Shaggy is giving back. 

Reggae artist “Shaggy”, born Orville Burrell, raised 100 million Jamaican dollars for the children of the Bustamante Hospital in Jamaica. The amount is equivalent to $800 thousand dollars. The hospital is a government funded, and Shaggy says they are trying to make it easier on the government.
