Donald Glover had a hell of night on Sunday (September 17) at the Emmys. He took home two awards for his FX show, Atlanta — one for acting and one for directing — and also revealed that he's going to be dad again, which is all extremely great and should theoretically be enough excitement for one evening. But nope.
After the show in the press room, Glover was asked by a reporter if he'd go back to working on music now, after hinting this summer that he'd soon be retiring Childish Gambino. His answer seemed maybe a little less than optimistic — "I don't want to ever do anything because I'm forced to. I think once you do that, things start to get bad and you jump the shark." — but then, he offered a glimmer of hope (around 5:38 in the video below).
"They stop me on the street, and it's kind of scary. Youth scares me," he concluded. "So I feel like I gotta do something. I probably will."
It does seem, given Glover's comments here, that it could happen pretty soon, and he told an L.A. radio show earlier this year that the groundwork had potentially already been laid: "We're both busy but when he has, like, a moment, we've just been sitting down and just working together. I think it's about catching a vibe."
Chance appeared in the Emmys introductory song, delivering a verse that encouraged people to maybe DVR that season finale so they could hit the streets and protest instead. Watch that below, via Pitchfork.
