Quincy Jones Defends Nicole Richie

Quincy Jones blames Nicole Richie’s troubles on the pressures of being in the public eye. “You get caught up in the peer pressure and the hoopla ? it’s a media frenzy. It’s insane. Success doesn’t help, Processing success is a major, major, major process.”

Jones, who has seven kids ? six of them daughters ? added, “I try to tell the young kids there are two cardinal rules: You should approach creativity with humility and have your success with grace. It’s a gift from God. You don’t deserve it. You are a vehicle of a higher power. Don’t abuse it.”

“I adore Nicole,” he said. “I’ve known her since she was a baby. She’s a very smart girl. When she was younger she worked eight hours a day for eight years to become an Olympic figure skater. She’s a very talented girl.” source
