Summer's Celebrities Are Out in Full Force in Childish Gambino's Video for 'Feels Like Summer'

It’s been a long season for celebrity news—remember when Azealia Banks hid in Elon Musk’s house? When Nicki Minaj blamed Travis Scott for her poor album sales? Drake’s secret baby? Kanye West stanning for Donald Trump? Gang’s all here, albeit in animated form, in Childish Gambino’s new video for “Feels Like Summer,”…

Childish Gambino Is Blatantly Angling for That Song of the Summer

We’re not a full month into summer yet, which means there’s still beaucoup time to anoint the Song of the Summer, a title only music industry people seem to care about. To perhaps challenge Drake’s “Nice for What” (the current No. 1 song in the country) and Cardi B’s “I Like It,” Childish Gambino / Donald Glover has a…

SZA Canoodles with Donald Glover in a Garden, and Bella Thorne Wants Us to Know Who the Hell She Is

OK, OK, I see you: SZA: “Garden (Say It Like Dat)” — A forlorn and lovestruck Donald Glover shows up in this gauzy, sexy music video, but the star of the show is SZA, dancing on the beach and in streams and rocking several very cute outfits. It’s fun and makes me wanna go shopping at Anthropologie and then go swimming…

Atlanta's Bold Second Season Explored Black Depression and Insecurity

If Donald Glover’s “This Is America” music video is a reflection of America’s perennial terrors—racism and violence—then the sophomore season of his hit FX series, Atlanta, is a reflection of black people trying to survive it. This season, refashioned as Atlanta Robbin’ Season, opened with an armed robbery at a fast…

More Evidence That 2017 Will Suck: No New Atlanta Episodes This Year

Donald Glover’s Golden Globe-winning Atlanta, for my money, was the funniest and driest comedy on TV in 2016. It had heart, it probed into its characters’ interiors with uncommon insight, it sprinkled about surreal touches. (“It’s free chicken sandwich day.”) Most of its 10 episodes clocked in around 22 minutes, which…

Donald Glover Beautifully Emphasizes That Movies and TV Are Lies in Golden Globes Speech

The recognition for Atlanta at this year’s Golden Globes is keeping many of us alive while watching La La Land predictably and dishearteningly win a lot of awards. Here’s Donald Glover in a chocolate suit accepting his award for Best Actor in a Television Series, Comedy or Musical, after Atlanta won earlier in the…

Watch a Shirtless, Wailing Childish Gambino Bring Funk to The Tonight Show

On Wednesday night’s Tonight Show, Childish Gambino/Donald Glover stood shirtless in the shadows—attempting a heavily Prince and D’Angelo inspired red-lit setup—to perform his funk slow jam “Redbone,” a standout track from his album Awaken My Love. The vocals fall into labored territory at points, giving the…

Last Night's Atlanta Went for Dark Humor With a Cereal Commercial About Police Brutality

Tuesday night’s Atlanta took a trip into the wonderful world of surreality with an episode-long parody of BET, done via the fictional “Black American Network.” As the show went about deconstructing stereotypes and hypocrisies, complete with a ridiculous news debate show and fake commercials aimed at black viewers, it…

Kim Kardashian Is Suing MediaTakeOut Over Claims That She Lied About The Robbery

Kim Kardashian has been silent in the wake of her robbery last week but the media hasn’t been able to shut their yaps, spinning yarns about an event we all know little to nothing about. MediaTakeOut, a dirty lil’ gossip site, is one of the worst perpetrators, going so far as to posit that she lied about the whole…
