Music producer Quincy Jones has apologized for firing off some comments about Michael Jackson and the Beatles in recent interviews, revealing his comments led to a family intervention.
On Thursday afternoon, Jones issued a detailed statement on Twitter regarding the "silly" information he revealed in the now-infamous interviews.
The music mogul tweeted, "A couple of weekends ago, my six daughters (who I am beyond proud of) took me aside for a surprise 'family intervention' because of some of the silly things I've said in two recent interviews and...I have learned my lesson!"
The 85-year-old music producer, who referred to himself as an "imperfect human," admitted that his "word vomit and bad-mouthing" was "inexcusable," but added that his intentions were misunderstood.
"I tried to relay about racism, inequality, homophobia...you name it," he explained. "I have already reached out to my friends privately, but when you live a public life, you have a responsibility to be an example, and since I do lead a public life, I wanted to make a public apology," his statement continued.
