Michael Jackson plagiarized songs: Quincy JonesLast updated on Feb 09, 2018, 12:25 am
Quincy Jones, the American jazz legend who collaborated with Michael Jackson many times, has now revealed that the late pop star stole some songs.
In an explosive interview, Jones said he hated to do this publicly but the notes don't lie.
"The notes don't lie, man. He was as Machiavellian as they come," said the legend.
MJ was greedy
Revelations paint a different picture of Michael Jackson
Giving the example of Donna Summer's 'State of Independence', and Jackson's hit Billie Jean, Jones called him greedy.
He also told that Jackson worked with studio musician Greg Phillinganes, who also wrote a key part in 'Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough', but the pop star did not give him royalties.
"Michael should have given him 10 per cent of the song," said Jones.
Jones talks about problems Jackson faced
"You mean with the way he looked? He had a problem with his looks because his father told him he was ugly and abused him. What do you expect?" he further added.
