🚑 Quincy Jones at 90: Bad Food Gets a ‘Beat It’ – Hospital Episode 🎺🏥
TL;DR: The legendary maestro Quincy Jones gave us a little scare over the weekend as he was whisked off to the hospital, the cause – a troublesome bite. The 28-time Grammy winner 🏆 had a bit of an icky response to something he ingested 🥴, but much to everyone’s relief, it wasn’t a serious affair. 🍔➡️🚑➡️😅
Alright, picture this: Quincy Jones, 90 years young and more Grammys on his mantlepiece than you have take-out containers in your fridge. Our guy, the Soul Bossa Nova star, was just chilling at his place last Saturday when the most unexpected guest dropped by — a bad food reaction. 🍔🚫
Now, who’d expect the maestro of tunes to hit a bum note with his dinner, right? But hey, who among us hasn’t felt the need to do a “Thriller” dance 💃🕺 off to the bathroom after an ill-advised late-night snack?
In swoop the paramedics, lights flashing, sirens blaring, not unlike the beginning of an MJ music video 🚨🎬. QJ is quickly shipped off to the hospital to be checked out and, thankfully, discharged soon after, proving that a little gastric grooving can’t keep a good man down.
And how about that, throughout the ordeal, QJ didn’t lose consciousness and even remained in ‘great spirits’! Talk about Bad (and we mean that in the Michael Jackson kind of way) 👑.
Over his stunning career, QJ has not only won across 10 Grammy categories, but has also worked with titans like Frank Sinatra, penned an Oscar-nominated score for Spielberg’s “The Colour Purple,” and even arranged tunes for iconic voices like Dinah Washington and Ella Fitzgerald 🎵🎶.
Speaking of icons, remember when QJ claimed he was hesitant to work with Elvis Presley due to racism allegations? Stirring the pot, as always! 🍲🥄 He maintained, Presley was ‘being coached by [songwriter] Otis Blackwell, telling him how to sing’. A claim disputed by others but hey, QJ knows how to keep us talking.
In the end, the music icon returned home, no doubt to a standing ovation from his seven kids, including “Parks and Recreation” actress Rashida Jones. Quincy’s weekend adventure, while a bit of a shocker, turned out to be more of a sour note than a full-blown sad symphony. 🏠🎼👏
So, while we’re relieved that our beloved Quincy is feeling groovy post-hospital visit, it does make us wonder about food safety. 🍔🤔 What if that “Thriller” dance next time turns out to be more menacing than we anticipated?
And on that note, does the rise in food reactions make you think twice about the food industry and the quality of what we’re putting into our bodies? 🤔 Are we paying enough attention to our diet or just dancing our way to a food disaster?
