If Quincy Jones has his way, and Q usually has in his lifetime, Vibe magazine will be his again. 

Quincy, who started the magazine in 1992, plans to make it an online publication only. The magazine was in the middle of a Michael Jackson Tribute Issue when they were told they had to shut down.  The magazine has been in serious debt for years and with print media becoming a dying breed, it just could not compete.

In other news, Quincy Jones says he does not plan on attending Michael Jackson's private funeral on Sunday. His reason has to do with lately having to bury so many friends lately, it is leaving him sad and he just can't deal with it anymore.

VERY understandable. Quincy was very close to Michael for a huge majority of his life and I am sure he never thought he would be going to his funeral.-Dr.FB

  1. Ah but will he regret not going?

  2. Quincy has a book signing late last year. Some of my friends bought Quincy’s book and had him sign it for Michael on the page where they had their picture together. Quincy was happy to do it and said he loved Michael. I was there, but I was in line ahead of them. They told me the story and the book was given to Michael. It’s crazy to think that just a few months later, Michael isn’t here to enjoy the book. :(

  3. Stop with the Joe comments, everything about him is hearsay, let’s keep things in proper perspective. Anyway, NICE pic of Q!

  4. Quincy was also probably more of a father figure than Joe, and a parent Never believes they’ll bury their child.
