Donald Glover Talks Controversial “This Is America” Video, Singing With Stevie Wonder On Kimmel [Video]

first_imgIt’s safe to say that Emmy-winning actor/director/writer Donald Glover, also know Grammy-winning artist Childish Gambino, has been the talk of the entertainment world this week. In addition to his incredibly successful (and equally controversial) new music video, his new movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story, just premiered, and the finale of his highly-acclaimed second season of Atlanta ran on FX on Thursday evening.On last weekend’s Saturday Night Live, Glover pulled double-duty as both host and musical guest. Along with various entertaining sketches, Glover used his two on-air Childish Gambino performances to debut two new songs, “Saturday” and “This Is America”—his first new songs since his acclaimed 2016 album, Awaken, My Love! Following the SNL debuts, Gambino released a visually captivating and thematically controversial new music video for “This Is America”, which strikingly juxtaposes the joyful machismo and the harrowing violence and fear that come along with being a black man in America. Watch the video below:Childish Gambino – “This Is America” [Official Video][Video: Donald Glover]The clip instantly became a cultural phenomenon, sparking outrage among some critics for its graphic depictions of gun violence, inspiring praise from others for its high-concept brilliance. As of this article’s publication time–less than 6 days after the video’s release–it has already racked up more than 75 million views on YouTube. Countless editorials, think-pieces, and the like have flooded the Internet, with people pointing out a bevy of hidden layers and offering their takes on the clip. However, one person who has notably not offered their interpretation of the “This Is America” video is Gambino himself: In a clip obtained by TMZ, Glover is asked by paparazzi what the meaning of the video was. His answer, smiling wryly: “Uh… That’s not for me to say.”Last night, Glover joined Jimmy Kimmel Live! to promote Solo: A Star Wars Story, the newly premiered Han Solo origin story spinoff in which he plays the role of Lando Calrissian. In addition to speaking about the significance of landing that role (“[Lando] was my first action figure”), Glover spoke about the surreal experience of being plucked from the crowd unexpectedly to sing with Stevie Wonder onstage earlier this week (Glover’s a longtime superfan, and this was his first time seeing him play), and explained how he’s mostly been oblivious to the frenzy surrounding the “This Is America” video. As he noted:Some friends have sent a couple [pieces], but for real, I haven’t been on the Internet since [before hosting last week’s Saturday Night Live]. … It’s bad for me – I’m really sensitive … I see one negative thing, and I track that person down. I go to their Instagram and be like, ‘You’re not so great. That baby’s not even that cute!’You can watch clips from Donald Glover’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live below:Donald Glover On the “This Is America” Music VideoDonald Glover on Landing the Role of Lando in Solo: A Star Wars StoryDonald Glover on Singing with Stevie WonderDonald Glover on The Album He Has Listened To The Mostlast_img read more

Cornwall’s allround display leaves Barbados Pride facing uphill task

first_imgBASSETERRE, St Kitts, (CMC) – An excellent all-rounder display from Rahkeem Cornwall rallied Leeward Islands Hurricanes and left Barbados Pride with an uphill task, heading into the third day of their opening round Regional Four-Day Championship contest at Warner Park.The burly 23-year-old smashed a lively 84 as the Hurricanes, resuming from their overnight 210 for five, were dismissed for an impressive 377 in their first innings on yesterday’s second day.Nkrumah Bonner, unbeaten on 70 overnight, fell short of three figures with 94.Off-spinner Kenroy Williams grabbed four of the five wickets to fall to finish with four for 26 while captain and seamer Kevin Stoute claimed three for 35.In response, Pride ended the day on 102 for three, still 275 runs adrift of overhauling their target.West Indies A captain, Shamarh Brooks, was unbeaten on 28 while opener Omar Phillips made 24 and Test batsman Roston Chase, 22.Once again, Cornwall proved to be the Hurricanes’ main asset, picking up two for 41, to give them honours on the day.His innings had earlier also given the hosts the momentum, as he and Bonner combined to extend their sixth wicket stand to 68, before being separated.Unbeaten on six overnight, Cornwall, one of the successes on the recent West Indies A tour of Sri Lanka, faced 150 balls in a shade over three hours at the crease and counted 12 fours and a six.Bonner, meanwhile, hit 11 fours in a knock spanning 254 deliveries and 5-1/4 hours.When the Jamaican fell, Cornwall anchored another key partnership, adding a further 55 for the seventh wicket with Jacques Taylor whose 29 required 117 balls in just over two hours and contained three fours and a six.Cornwall then set Barbados back early when he bowled Anthony Alleyne for 19 at 26 for one in the ninth over of the innings before Brooks and Phillips put on 35 to steady the reply.When Phillips became Cornwall’s second victim at 61 for two, Brooks and Chase posted 38 for the third wicket – a stand that appeared set to take Pride safely to the close without further loss.But the introduction of off-spinner Jacques Taylor accounted for Chase, lbw at 99 for three, to give Hurricanes the advantage.HURRICANES 1st Innings(overnight 210 for five)*K Powell c Williams b Stoute 26K Carty lbw b Greaves 0M Hodge lbw b Stoute 8C Hughes b Warrican 31N Bonner c wkp Rampersad b Chase 94+J Hamilton c Roach b Stoute 65R Cornwall c Stoute b Williams 84J Taylor c and b Williams 29H Walsh Jr cot out 19G Tonge c Phillips b Williams 11Q Boatswain c Phillips b Williams 1Extras (b1, lb8) 9TOTAL (all out, 157.5 overs) 377Fall of wickets: 1-12, 2-38, 3-39, 4-92, 5-204, 6-272, 7-327, 8-348, 9-368, 10-377.Bowling: Roach 18-7-43-0, Greaves 14-6-34-0, Stoute 25-11-35-3, Chase 18-4-60-1, Warrican 50-17-104-1, Charles 23-6-64-0, Brooks 1-0-2-0, Williams 8.5-1-26-4.PRIDE 1st InningsO Phillips c Bonner b Cornwall 24A Alleyne b Cornwall 19S Brooks not out 28R Chase lbw b Taylor 22J Warrican not out 1Extras (b1, lb1, nb5) 7TOTAL (3 wkts, 36 overs) 102To bat: K Stoute, K Williams, +M Rampersad, J Greaves, K Roach, N Charles.Fall of wickets: 1-26, 2-61, 3-99.Bowling: Tonge 7-3-9-0, Boatswain 6-2-24-0, Cornwall 15-3-41-2 (nb4), Walsh 5-1-20-1, Taylor 3-1-6-1.Position: Pride trail by 275 runs with seven wickets remaining.last_img read more
