Donald Glover Spoofs Kanye Shitstorm As SNL Host, Childish Gambino Debuts Tracks As Musical Guest [Watch]

first_imgOn Saturday night, multi-talented writer/actor/musician/entertainment Renaissance man Donald Glover (known in the music world as Childish Gambino) entered a rare club, becoming one of a short list of performers to serve double duty as host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live. Just as he does with all his various, separate projects, Glover put his best foot forward in both roles, showing that he doesn’t just do a bunch of different things–he does a bunch of different things really well.On SNL, Glover starred in his silliest, wittiest comedic form in the episode’s wealth of priceless sketches, and fully transformed into his Gambino alter-ego for his incredible musical performances, both of which were debuts. For his opening monologue, over smooth jazz in the key of D, Glover joked about being hung up on his two failed SNL auditions back in the day. Playing on the frequent comments about the breadth of his talent, he sang about how “I really can do anything” while asking cast members what they did for their auditions and failing at menial tasks with pronounced hubris.As a bit of self-aware commentary at the end of the monologue, Glover didn’t stray from the script customarily read by the host to welcome the musical guest, despite the unusual circumstances: “We have a great show for you tonight, Childish Gambino is here.” That distinction was proven valid throughout the show, as Donald, the Emmy-winning actor/director, and Gambino, the Grammy-winning musician, both shined in their respective, separate duties.Donald Glover – SNL Opening MonologueAmong Glover’s most amusing segments was a pre-canned sketch riffing on Kanye West‘s recent deluge of inflammatory public comments in a parody of the critically acclaimed new horror film, A Quiet Place. In the sketch, titled “A Kanye Place,” a group of would-be victims is attempting to sneak through a cornfield undetected by the monsters trying to eat them, but despite their attempts to stay quiet, Kanye keeps tweeting outlandish shit and they can’t help but talk about it–which turns out to be their downfall. It’s a sublime send-up of the media circus that’s surrounded West in the last couple weeks and the perplexing process the public has gone through of denouncing, deliberating, and endlessly debating the significance of this metaphorical dumpster fire. Check it out below:A Kanye Place[Video: Saturday Night Live]Serving as Childish Gambino in another pre-filmed clip, titled “Friendos”, Glover, Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd portray a hilarious spoof of mumble-rap superstars Migos. Under the guise of a hot club banger music video, the Friendos do maintenance on their group relationship by going to therapy with Dr. Angela, played with a steely deadpan by Cecily Strong. A$AP Rocky even makes a surprise cameo. Watch the video below:Childish Gambino ft. A$AP Rocky – “Friendos“Glover also put on his Childish Gambino “mask” for a theatrically choreographed performance of a new track, his first since his universally-acclaimed 2016 album, Awaken, My Love! The performance was introduced by (and featured the dance moves of) Zoë Kravitz. You can watch the SNL debut performance of “Saturday”, the appropriately-titled new track, below:Childish Gambino – “Saturday”For Childish Gambino’s other musical performance, he debuted another new song, “This Is America”. The SNL video of that performance was not released with the others, but today he released an official music video for the track, which strikingly juxtaposes the joyful machismo and the harrowing violence and fear that come along with being a black man in America. The track also features backing vocals by Young Thug, 21 Savage, Quavo of Migos, Rae Sremmurd’s Slim Jxmmi, and BlocBoy JB. Check out the music video below:Childish Gambino – This Is America[Video: Donald Glover]You can see an assortment of other clips of Donald Glover/Childish Gambino on SNL below.
