EXCLUSIVE: Donald Glover Compares Migos to the Beatles After Golden Globes Shout-Out: 'They're Awesome'

By
Atlanta creator and star Donald Glover raised a few eyebrows at the Golden Globe Awards when he thanked the rap group Migos in his acceptance speech. He explained the shout-out to ET backstage at the awards show.
"I love the Migos. I think they're awesome," Glover told ET's Kevin Frazier. "I think they're the Beatles. And that song ['Bad and Boujee'] is just amazing."
Glover thanked the Georgia-based rap trio after taking home the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a TV Comedy Series.
"I couldn't be here without Atlanta," Glover said from the Golden Globes stage. "And I really want to thank the Migos, not for being in the show but for making 'Bad and Boujee.' That's the best song ever."
The Community alum later returned to the stage, this time with the rest of the cast and crew, to accept the award for Best Television Comedy. He told Frazier he's hopeful that the two trophies can help with getting the FX comedy a third season.
"If you make something super personal and specific, you'll reach a wide group of people," Glover said, commenting on the show's authenticity. "People got to be real right now. I think we realized that from what's happening in this country and in the world. Small talk about things is not getting us anything we want, so you got to be honest about it and willing to listen to each other, so I think this show is playing with that."
Atlanta follows Earn (Glover), a Princeton dropout-turned-music manager in Atlanta, who tries to get his cousin, who raps under the stage name Paper Boi (Brian Tyree Henry), to stardom.
