Donald Glover Confirms That He Is Still Planning to Retire ‘Childish Gambino’

blogged by: @ashleytearra

Despite his latest musical success, Donald Glover is still standing by the decision to retire his ‘Childish Gambino’ alter ego.

Last June–during the Governors Ball Music Festival in NYC, Glover made the initial announcement that he’d be closing out that chapter of his life after the release of his upcoming fourth studio album.

However, Gambino fans grew quite confused when the 34-year-old made headlines last week for his recent partnership with RCA Records.

But, this past Sunday at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, Glover put an end to everyone’s confusion, confirming that his retirement plans were still in the works.

“I stand by that. I’m really appreciative of this. I’m making another project right now,” he told the press backstage. “But, I like endings. I think they’re important to progress. I think if a lot of things had death clauses in them, we wouldn’t have a lot of problems in the world, to be honest. Endings are good because they force things to get better.”



Glover scored one win out of his five Grammy nominations. He took home an award for ‘Best Traditional R&B Performance’ for his hit single, “Redbone”.



He also graced the stage to perform “Terrified”, alongside his Lion King co-star, J.D. McCrary, who is set to portray ‘young Simba’ for the classic reboot, while Glover will take on the main role of ‘Simba’.
