Quincy Jones Disses Kanye West — Say What!

Guess who’s not a Kanye West fan? Quincy Jones. A comparison to the rapper/producer brought out Quincy’s ire in a recent interview with US Magazine. “Did he write for a symphony orchestra? Does he write for a jazz orchestra?” the 79-time Grammy-nominated producer snapped. “Come on, man. He’s just a rapper. There’s no comparison. I’m not putting him down or making a judgement or anything, but we come from two different sides of the planet. I spent 28 years learning my first skill. I don’t rap. It’s not the same thing. A producer has to have some sort of skills that enable him to be a producer. It’s totally different to know what to do with 16 woodwinds you know from piccolos down to bass clarinet. It’s a whole different mindset. No comparison. None.” Damn, Q. [US]

Ke$ha discussed wearing a garbage bag at the MTV VMA’s this year. “I was trying to look super hot,” she said. “I like to poke fun at when people make fun of me, because I don’t take myself that seriously. People say I’m ‘garbage chic,’ so I thought I’d take it to the next level and make a garbage bag super f–king chic — and I succeeded!” No. [MTV]
