Quincy Jones is one of the most well-known music producers, musicians, and composers of all time, but now he can officially add "master of shade" to his long list of accomplishments.
He sat down with GQ for an interview on everything from his career to his childhood and where the music industry is heading now. He was quite...um, candid...with his responses. Mary J.

But once the interviewer asked him about Taylor Swift, he winced.
"We need more songs, man. Fucking songs, not hooks." the Emmy, Tony, and Oscar-winning producer said about the infamous singer-songwriter.
He was reminded that a lot of people consider Swift to be one of the greatest songwriters of our generation.
And his response?

How will she take this criticism? Will it affect her reputation? No idea but we're certainly ready for it.
