Home Celebrity Legendary Music Producer Quincy Jones Launching Line of Sugar Free Popsicles Today...

Legendary producer Quincy Jones, 85, never stops. He’s peerless when it comes to licensing his name to products. I love the headphones he makes for AKG. Their sound can’t be topped.

Now Q is launching a line of sugar free popsicles. In 2015 he says he went into a diabetic coma, mostly from alcohol consumption. He cut the drinking, learned to love the pops, and lost 50 pounds. I love this this line: “Having come up with the likes of Ray Charles & Frank Sinatra, I had enough alcohol to last multiple lifetimes…” Q has lived a lot longer than either of those superstars, and I hope he keeps going for a long time.

If and when this popsicle video surfaces on YouTube, I will add it here. Keep refreshing…

Here’s what Q posted to Instagram:

In 2015, I went into a diabetic coma & took what should’ve been my last breath. By the grace of God I made it through, but not without having to make some MAJOR adjustments. Having come up with the likes of Ray Charles & Frank Sinatra, I had enough alcohol to last multiple lifetimes, & the doctors told me I had to call it quits!! After substituting drinking with eating sugar free popsicles, I lost 50 pounds, & started feeling 37 again. My mind cleared up & it brought back incredible memories I shared with mentors who helped me along the way. When I was a kid touring on the road, jazz greats used to tell me, “Youngblood, step into my office. Let me pull your coat for a few ticks.” (slang for “Come over here. I want to teach you something”). I valued those pieces of advice more than anything & now that I’m back on track, it’s only right for me to share what I’ve learned with some of the talented rugrats out there today…Man, these kids got a lot of it down already, but as someone who’s been there done that, it don’t feel right keepin’ it to myself. I wish I could’ve recorded the lessons my mentors shared with me but we didn’t have technology like y’awl got now, so now that we got it, we gon’ share it! And because I cain’t have a drank no mo, we’re sharing it over a sugar free popsicle…So I hope y’awl will join me on my @youtube channel tomorrow (Friday, 12/20/19 at 9AM PT – link in bio) for the breaking of our first popsicle \(^o^)/…Don’t let nobody tell U purple is better than red!!…xxoo..q…<3
