Quincy Jones shook the media this past week after an interview he did with Vulture went viral. In it, he made some bold revelations including his opinions on Michael Jackson's "greed," The Beatles' "terrible musicianship," his past romantic relationship with Ivanka Trump and more.
While some celebrities have taken to social media to share their opinions on his words, one of his closest friends, Oprah, refrained from speaking out, until now.
TMZ caught up with the queen of all media while she left the Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York, on Wednesday night. When they asked her if she would share her thoughts on the interview, she made one thing clear.
"Listen, Quincy is a friend of mine. You are not going to get me to say one thing about Quincy Jones," she said. "Quincy Jones discovered me for The Color Purple, honey... You will not hear me say a bad thing [about him]."
Jones produced The Color Purple, the film which saw Oprah earn both an Oscar and Golden Globe nomination in 1986.
"I haven't read the article," she said before leaving.
