Earlier this week Quincy Jones, legendary musician and very great person, gave an insane freewheeling interview to Vulture which covered such topics as who killed Kennedy, how Bono named his son after Quincy Jones, but is also a bad musician now, and how he tricked Ringo into thinking someone else’s drum line was his own. It was freewheeling, crazy and frankly, you should read the whole thing — but amongst the information in there was the concept of Marlon Brando’s possible bisexuality, with Quincy Jones saying —
[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.
Interviewer: He slept with them? How do you know that? [Frowns.] Come on, man. He did not give a fuck! You like Brazilian music?
See? What did I tell you? The interview was great! It’s also a nice little shout out that the population of bisexual men is… you know, deeper than people think it is. Still, there’s such a stigma against bisexual men that like — well, this is nice. Two figures of polar opposite masculinity hooked up once! And, how do we know this is true? Well, Pryor’s ex-wife more or less confirmed it, telling TMZ —
It was the ’70s. Drugs were still good, especially quaaludes. If you did enough cocaine, you’d fuck a radiator and send it flowers in the morning.
Well, folks. Marlon Brando is a lot hunkier than a radiator and probably appreciated the flowers a lot more. It’s a very nice bit of news, that two great figures of the 20th century were progressive and more open to bisexuality than maybe a lot of figures today. So, if you ever would use an excuse that the days gone by were somehow more conservative, well, Pryor and Brando had sex. So, if you’re nervous about coming out as bisexual, Brando’s got no problem with it! And, he was a fat guy who owned an island. The ultimate dream!
Would you have sex with a radiator and send it flowers, or would the radiator burn your junk off? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
