Quincy Jones may be 84 years old, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t out here enjoying quite the healthy dating life.
In a new interview with GQ, the music legend shared all sorts of stories about the icons, including himself. One of the things he revealed about his own life is that he’s a fan of polyamory at this point, telling the magazine, “I got 22 girlfriends.”
He tried to commit to one person a few times in the past, but each times things didn’t go as planned.
“I was married three times, man,” he said. “Was told not to marry actresses or singers. I ended up with two actresses, Peggy Lipton and Nastassja Kinski, and a superstar model. I didn’t listen to all the advice.”
So now Jones is of “the more the merrier” mentality. But his girlfriends aren’t necessarily in the same city as him. They’re all over the world.
“Everywhere,” he said. “Cape Town. Cairo. Stockholm—she’s coming in next week. Brazil—Belo Horizonte, São Paulo, and Rio. Shanghai—got a great girl over there from Shanghai, man. Cairo, whew.”
The trick to making it all work is being as honest as possible.
“Yeah, I don’t lie. And it’s amazing—women get it, man,” he said. “Don’t you ever forget they’re 13 years smarter than we are. Don’t you ever forget it.”
And even though they might be “13 years smarter,” that doesn’t mean Jones is necessarily dating anyone near his age or older. Despite having an eldest child in their fifties and the youngest in their twenties, he dates women of a certain age.
