Stephen Colbert tries to figure out the craziest part of the amazing new Quincy Jones interviews

Stephen Colbert goes through highlights of Quincy Jones interview

Legendary music producer Quincy Jones "may have given a pair of the greatest show-business interviews of all time," Stephen Colbert said on Wednesday's Late Show. "I can't get into everything he said, but let's start small: He knows who killed JFK," Colbert said. And "strangely, who killed the president was one of the less-explosive details."

Jones also dished on Michael Jackson, Jackson's feud with Prince, and President Trump, whom Jones said he "used to hang out with" and "can't stand," adding, "I used to date Ivanka, you know." While Colbert questioned the propriety of Jones dating Trump's daughter, Jon Batiste said Jones told him the same thing. "But that is still, still not the headline coming out of these interviews," Colbert said. That would be Jones' assertion that Marlon Brando slept with Richard Pryor, Marvin Gaye, and James Baldwin. Jones had a very pithy quote about Brando, which was upstaged only by the one from Pryor's wife.
