Quincy Jones - Quincy Jones Clears Up Comments About Sean 'Diddy' Sean Combs

Legendary producer Quincy Jones has played down remarks he made about Sean Combs' talent, insisting he meant "no diss" to the rapper and has only "love and respect" for him.
Jones singled out Combs for criticism during a launch event for online music streaming service Spotify in New York on Tuesday (26Jun12), accusing him of relying on his impressive marketing skills to succeed.
The music veteran told the crowd the hip-hop star "couldn't recognise a B flat if it hit him", adding, "P. Diddy has a doctorate in marketing."
But Jones insists he meant no harm to Combs and has taken to his Facebook.com page to set the record straight.
He writes, "No controversy, no diss. I have nothing but love and respect for Diddy and all that he has achieved as an artist and an executive. Always have and always will."
