    I don't see any theft or plagiarism here. Michael was probably inspired by Jon Anderson & Vangelis to create Billie Jean original demo. And Quincy was inspired with Michael's Billie Jean demo to create Donna Summer's cover version.

    I wonder did Quincy look at this before he said that about Michael. i agree 100%. Quincy mind is already gone..

    By the way State Of Independence doesn't sound anything like Billie Jean.

    The Friends of Mr Cairo album version of State Of Independence has more clear similarities to billie Jean in my opinion lol!

    Whatever the case, Quincy used the term 'stole' wayyy too loosely. Many songs are inspired by other songs.. Sounds evolve, you can't "evolve" from nothing..

    If I sat here and took every song that has similarity to another song - I could spend all day collecting various groups!

    Anyone think it's possible that he is intentionally jumping around getting little snippets of drama out there to creating extra interest in him?

    Quincy wants to make a 10 part series biopic of himself, what better way to get people bidding on his story than to showcase a bunch of controversial randomness??



    I'm just saying it could be calculated

    Off course it is calculated.

    I follow your articles and evaluations now for a long time. Truly an incredible job you are doing here.
    I have a question. Surely you heard from the Quincy Jones interview where he claims MJ stole Billie Jean. It really annoys me how the media takes everything negative so unchecked when it comes to Michael. It has been a strategy of Quincy Jones for years now to tarnish him as a artist and portray himself as the true maker(architect of Michael Jackson. In fact, the media are only too happy to portray it as if MJ was made by others and he has the lowest of all shares in its own success. I think it is not a surprise he took his signature song because it gives the most damage. Do you think this Jones attack to portray Michael as the thief of Billie Jean harms him in the long run.
    I think more interviews from him will come around his 85 birthday (Oprah is obviously one of the next).
    I’m always amazed how MJ after all these attacks not only his personal life but also the attacks to him as a artist he continues to have this success.

    Hi Marlene!

    To be honest, I don’t think many people care about Quincy’s rants for many years. The ones giving him credit are the same ones outside of the black culture, mostly rock fans on their 60s+, which anyway never liked MJ since it broke various Beatles’ records and never played instruments live. Basically, Quincy comments will only convinced people who already convinced themselves!

    I really do not think many of those types of people buy what he said about MJ.

    I mean, let anyone hear the two songs and come up with there own opinion.. If you have to slow the song, change the tempo to maybe hear the similarities.. Than whatever! Who the F cares?

    It's just news for the sake of news.. He said he knew who killed JFK and Michael was the headline! and the JFK person he mentioned is actually has validity, there's been documentaries and specials on it in the past..

    The media (and government) has always done a great job to say LOOK that way while we should be looking the other direction.

    He also claims he dated Ivanka Trump....
    If that wasn't enough to throw his credibility out the window then lol
    As for JFK, I doubt Quincy really has any detail on that. Any one of us could say they know and point to a documentary. I think there's better sources on JFK than Quincy (Jesse Ventura, for one). At this point I take anything Q says with the smallest grain of salt tbh.

    When a song gets talked about more than someone "allege" killer goes to show how messed up people's priorities are about what is important.

    About that Ivanka thing.. I mean, nothing that family does would surprise me lol.. I mean if Donald can say he would date his daughter, I think Quincy has a change haha!

    did she say it wasn't true? cuz, you know that family loves tweeting about "fake news".. just sayin'

    lol fair point. Yeah I believe even the trump family denied it.
    There's what, at least a 40 year age difference between them (I'm not saying it not possible) Its just unlikely IMO lol.

    I think she was in a room and just friendly offered his some food that was on the stove, sat down and eat the food with him, and he calls it a date. Just saying. This just like some guys use to wave at me and I would wave and smile back, next thing I know, they think I want to be with them when only I was just being nice.
