In an insane Vulture interview with Quincy Jones (not to be confused with the insane interview he gave GQ), the music legend suggested that, in the 1970s, Richard Pryor and Marlon Brando had sex:
[Marlon] Brando used to go cha-cha dancing with us. He could dance his ass off. He was the most charming motherfucker you ever met. He’d fuck anything. Anything! He’d fuck a mailbox. James Baldwin. Richard Pryor. Marvin Gaye.
He slept with them? How do you know that?
[Frowns.] Come on, man. He did not give a fuck! You like Brazilian music?
Brando slept with Richard Pryor?
Yes, yes he did, according to Pryor’s widow, Jennifer Pryor, via TMZ:
Richard would have no shame about Quincy’s comments. She says the comedic legend was always very open about his bisexuality with friends, and documented it extensively in diaries. Jennifer says she’ll publish them later this year.
As for Richard hooking up with Brando — she says, “It was the ’70s! Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you’d f*** a radiator and send it flowers in the morning.”
That is amazing!
I still don’t know what it has to do with Brazilian music.
