When two legends work together, often, they create something unique and incredible. But it doesn’t mean they have nothing to accuse each other of. This is exactly the case when it comes to fruitful collaboration of Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson.

What does the producer say?

At the beginning of February 2018, the Grammy Award-winner accused Michael of stealing many songs, and "Billie Jean," in particular. Yes, Jones claims that the most famous hit of the King of Pop was actually plagiarized. When comparing the song to Donna Summer’s "State of Independence," Quincy said:

The notes don't lie, man. He was as Machiavellian as they come.

Does he criticize other celebs?

Sure thing, Jones believes that The Beatles is the worst band because its members didn’t even know how to play instruments, especially Paul McCartney and Ringo Star. The American jazz legend also bagged the singer T-Pain, Cyndi Lauper, and modern pop music in general.

However, there are some artists that got his approval, such as Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, and many more.

What is Joe Jackson’s response?

Unfortunately, Michael is no longer with us to react to these accusations. That is why his father did it for him. Joe believes that the producer was just jealous of his talented son.

What is more, he thinks these claims are ridiculous because Quincy is the producer for both songs, "Billie Jean" and "State of Independence". So, even if there is some resemblance, it’s Jones who should be blamed. Jackson says:

He says my son stole it, but he was the producer on both, so if anybody is wrong it would be Quincy.

Joe also believes it's unforgivable to blame Michael who died nine years ago. The world knows that Jackson was number one all over the world, and he did not need to steal songs from anyone.
