Where Was Donald Glover at the GRAMMYs After Childish Gambino’s Big Wins?
By Rachel McRady
One of the biggest nights in music proved to be a record-breaking night for Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover). The only problem? The 35-year-old sensation was nowhere to be seen at the Staples Center during the major award show.
Childish Gambino became the first rapper ever to win Song and Record of the Year for “This Is America.” He also picked up GRAMMYs for Best Rap/Sung Performance and Best Music Video for the song.
So where exactly was Glover? Even his “This Is America” team doesn’t know!
Ludwig Goransson, who co-wrote the song and accepted the award on Sunday, admitted he didn’t know why Glover didn’t attend the show.
“I haven’t talked to him yet, but I’m going to call him after the award show and I’m sure we’re going to have a little conversation,” Goransson told reporters backstage, adding, “I don’t know,” when asked if he knew where Glover was.
