Donald Glover sipped the Kool-Aid in his new interview with The New Yorker.

Donald Glover sipped the Kool-Aid in his new interview with The New Yorker.

There’s no denying Glover (better known as Childish Gambino) is gifted. He’s an actor, writer, director, comedian, producer, singer, songwriter and rapper. Instead of celebrating his multitude of talents, Glover is bragging and dragging. Not cool.

There’s a lot to dissect in his chat with The New Yorker, but one talking point is his Gaga/Grammys shade. When discussing racial inequality, Glover goes in. Here’s a copy + paste excerpt:

[adinserter block=”1″]

“I went to school with white people who had less talent than me—because I’m talented as f–k—and they’re doing way better than me. I went to N.Y.U. with Lady Gaga.” The New Yorker says there was a burst of laughter and applause from the den. “Now, CBS ran Grammys ads this week, and I’m one of the hotter acts, and they had a visual of the performers on the show: Lady Gaga, Pink, and me. Only they showed some black kid from a fan video—it’s not even me. I was, like, **** this, **** them, I’m not going to do the show!” After a moment, he added, quietly, “The sad thing is I’m going to do it, because black people don’t get that chance very often.”

I imagine the audience burst into laughter at his claims that Gaga (and Pink) are less talented than him. I know I did.

    1. Everyone has their own talents. That’s like me saying I’m better than you because I just am. Gambino does have some great records and is a great actor, but him and Gaga are on two different platforms and genres, the comparison is ridiculous. But that’s just my opinion.

      1. Well he’s definitely known for a lot more than putting artists down…lol…stand up specials,Grammy winning music, plus his highly acclaim show Atlanta. I could imagine his discontent for the industry is spilling over onto artists that he feels contribute to the faults of modern music and entertainment

    2. She’s actually pretty humble. But she’s a woman and insecure little eunuchs always think they are arrogant when simply acting confident and like adults.

  1. He’s not lying though lol…. she’s too fake and forces herself into everything to make her seem more talented than she is. But I don’t like when people are cocky either, so minus points for him.

  2. You’re boring and your performances are static as f, you can indeed act, and your voice is sweet, but your whole style is completely uninventive compared to what Gaga has done, she has reinvented herself and pop culture herself quite a couple of times, the most memorable thing about you is your silly name

  3. You’re boring and your performances are static as f, you can indeed act, and your voice is sweet, but your whole style is completely uninventive compared to what Gaga has done, compared to all the instruments she can play, the range she has, and the creativity and STAGE PRESENCE, she has reinvented herself and heavily impacted pop culture itself quite a couple of times, the most memorable thing about you is your silly name

    Go **** some dck so you can forget about how much of a sore loser you are you dckhead

  7. Talent is objective. It wouldn’t surprise me if this was taken out of context. But HAVE YOU SEEN ATLANTA. Not tryna compared two great artists BUT Lady Gaga didn’t make Atlanta. Gambinos talents fall within a different plane then Gaga’s. His insight and perspective into social conflicts and deep underlying issues is rarely rivaled. Lady Gaga’s talent pertains to commercial music and outlandish visual art (that is probably styled by somebody else). Gaga is a muse that many feel they identify while Gambino is a mastermind who will **** a ***** to pass the time

  8. Donald Glover is talented but this comparison is so gross for multiple reasons. Let’s just start out with this Gaga started in 2008, Donald in 2002, Donald is also two years older than Gaga. Lady Gaga has won over 230 awards out of 500 nominations Donald only 20+ out of less than 60. Lady Gaga is an activist, a philanthropist, a singer, a musician, an artist, an actress, a performer. She can sing, dance, play multiple instruments, and switch costumes all in one performance. Lady Gaga is a chameleon to compare a queer icon to some talented tv/film guy is absolutely ridiculous. Gaga is a queer woman in the music industry she was constantly surrounded by cishet black men her entire career because they were all her superiors, Akon, Vincent Herbert, while Gaga most obviously has white privilege his comments were gross and unnecessary. Lady Gaga is a multi talented super star who quite honestly is underrated and has never gotten the love she deserves from the general public. Numbers don’t lie and Gaga out does him in literally every single category.
