Quincy Jones is 84 and is living the life that many men try to live but never can.
In a recent interview with GQ, Jones let the world know that he has 22 girlfriends spread around different parts of the world and each one knows about the other. I’ve never heard of any man having success juggling two or three women. For Quincy Jones to be able to handle 22 women at the same time is quite surprising when you consider the fact that he’s honest about all of them.
When asked about keeping it honest with his many women, he told GQ, “Yeah, I don’t lie. And it’s amazing—women get it, man. Don’t you ever forget they’re 13 years smarter than we are. Don’t you ever forget it.”
If Quincy Jones’ assortment of women doesn’t surprise you, maybe the fact that they are all between the ages of 28 and 42 will. Jones’ reasoning for the age gap between himself and the women he dates is somewhat understandable, telling GQ that his daughters gave him the numbers to prevent him from going out with women younger than them.
While some people would assume that a man his age should only be with women more closely to his age, Jones looks at it as the opposite. When asked if he would date women his age, he told GQ, “Hell no!”
Now, there is a part of me that questions whether or not these 22 women have some unresolved “daddy issues” that lead them in the arms of an 84-year old man but that’s none of my business. Speaking of none of my business, I also can’t help but think that with all the sexual harassment allegations going around, this probably wasn’t the best time for Quincy Jones to reveal his womanizing ways.
Either way, if the women know about it and they’re okay with his lifestyle, more power to him.
