15 Things You Didn’t Know About Childish Gambino


Seal’s “Kiss From A Rose” is his favorite karaoke song.

Donald Glover’s favourite karaoke song is none other than Seal’s “Kiss From A Rose,” which was also featured on the soundtrack of Batman Forever. Not only does he actually like the song, but he told GQ in an interview

“At the beginning, people know the intro and react [starts singing the melody]: “Bada-ba-ba-ba-ba-bada-ba…” You’re never alone by the time you have to sing the “Baby!” which is the hard part because it gets high.”

    you just gave Nardwuar all the info he needs for a Childish interview. well done

    I like his feelings about where he failed with Camp in number 12. I’m hoping he’s got a new mixtape coming out soon – with those recent releases, we can hope.

    And number 4? That’s not the current “African-American Spider-Man which [we] can see above.” That’s some fan made art of Donald Glover as Spidey.

    You’re looking for Miles Morales.

    he also comes off as incredibly whiney and self-centered (see his needless twitter rants). for someone who really isnt that big a star to whinge like that is unbecoming

    Oh, gawd, the lost days in FL Studio, man. I know, D-Money. I know, D-Money.

  • a guest but not really

    @Islandkid Lol, responding to criticisms and hate is definitely being self centered..

  • Dakota

    Yea, most of this is pretty common knowledge.

  • @battlecrane

    They should have not wasted their time, if you like Childish you already know most of this

  • Drizzy Drake

    Here’s one more fun fact. Donald Glover briefly dated Adesuwa Aighewi, the female lead in his “Heartbeat” music video. But then he dumped her for Samantha Duenas, aka DJ SoSuperSam. The two had been close friends for the longest time and are now in a relationship…

    Wanna be the second to say I’m very hopeful for a Childish-Cudi collab. I think they could mesh well. Maybe on Cudi’s upcoming mixtape or album?
