We’d like to dedicate a post to someone we’ve been low key crushing on this year. But now, we’re ready to come out in the open about it. If you’re not familiar with the work of Donald Glover, you need to rethink your priorities and choice of specimen in this life. Let us name off a few of his accomplishments.
Atlanta. Donald writes, directs, and stars in this hit comedy series. The show is about two cousins who live wildly different lives, yet always seem to come together somehow because that’s what happens in great television. It’s only had one season and it’s already taking home awards.
Childish Gambino. The song Redbone should be on replay on your Spotify playlist. If this is the first time you’re hearing about it, you’re welcome. Donald’s sweet vocals will take you to another world. Not only can he enchant you with smooth jams, but boy knows how to rap and beatbox like no other. His album Because The Internet has some great getting ready to go out on the town songs.
Community. If you’re in need of a good laugh, hop on Hulu and watch some old episodes of this show. Donald’s characters is ruthless and shameless and we want to be his best friend.
Star Wars. Donald is currently filming the 2018 Untitled Star Wars movie. He’ll be playing Lando Calrissian. Production isn’t even wrapped and we already know that it’s a perfect casting.
On top of all of this, he’s a hot dad, which makes him so much more crushable, and despite all of his success, he somehow manages to live a low-key life in Los Angeles. Our favorite celebs are the ones who stay out of the limelight because they remind us that they’re just like you and me… they just make about ten times more of an income each year. May we all take some inspiration from DG, and be inspired by his abundance of talent.
