Asking for a Ribbing

In his biography, Moonwalk, Michael Jackson clues us in on the origin of Quincy Jones' nickname. Jones, who famously produced Jackson's Off the Wall and Thriller, was known far and wide as Q. This was a result of, Michael tells us, Quincy's well-known love of barbecue.

I heard the nickname "Jacko" came from Michael's love of Jackie Onassis.

Was that before or after he revealed that he'd never had plastic surgery?
