Quincy Jones Slams New Michael Jackson album 'Xscape': 'Everybody's after money'

That new Michael Jackson album? According to producer Quincy Jones, it can beat it reports The New York Daily News.  Jones, who worked with Jackson on a slew of hits including "Billie Jean," "Thriller," and "Bad," spoke about the posthumous album "Xscape" during an interview on Canadian radio show "Q with Jian Ghomeshi."  "They're trying to make money," Jones said about the new album. "And I understand it."  "Everybody's after money, the estate, the lawyers. It's about money," Jones said. "It's not my business anymore."  Jones also spoke about working on bestselling album "Thriller" with Jackson, and how he took the lead on the project."What am I gonna learn from Michael? I don't wanna be singing and dancing," Jones said. "I didn't ask him about anything. We told him what songs he was gonna sing. A producer has to do that."

Sidebar: Tell' em Q. But I do love that song with Justin Timberlake. I'm just saying.
