*Although Donald Glover is confident performing as rap alter ego Childish Gambino, he admits he’s not so confident with life right now.
“I’m afraid of the future,” Glover said in his recent Instagram post.
“I’m afraid my parents won’t live long enough to see my kids. I’m afraid my show will fail. I’m scared my girl will get pregnant and not the exact time we want. I’m scared I’ll never reach my potential. I’m afraid she’s still in love with that dude.”
“I feel like I’m letting everyone down,” followed by, “I’m afraid i’m here for nothing,” and “I’m scared I’ll be Tyrese.” He continued to vent his frustrations. “The label doesn’t want me to release in December cause its not a holiday record and I’m not a big artist,” he continued, addressing rumors of his run on NBC’s scripted comedy, “Community.” “I didn’t leave ‘Community’ to rap. I don’t wanna rap. I wanted to be on emu own. I’ve been sick this year. I’ve seen a bunch of people die this year. This is the first time I’ve felt helpless. But I’m not on that. Kept looking for something to be in with. Follow someone’s blueprint. But you have to be on your own.”
