In a Q&A “interview” with himself, Atlanta creator and star Donald Glover spoke about his frustrations with comparisons between his show and fellow FX series Dave, creative differences with Phoebe Waller-Bridge on a Mr. and Mrs. Smith reboot, and whether he regrets his largely critically panned album Camp.
Glover, who admitted he doesn’t “love” interviews at the start of the article, asked himself questions and gave himself answers for Interview magazine, offering rare insight into his worldview and creative process.
"I think part of it is that the questions are usually the same. This way I can get questions I usually don’t get asked," the 34-year-old multi-hyphenate said. "I don’t think it’s more contrived than any other interview."
Among the topics he dug into are his widely misconstrued comments about “canceling,” how he feels about Dave Chappelle and Joe Rogan, and his likening of Atlanta to The Sopranos. Glover also addressed accusations that he’s become “pretentious” following the success of his show, now airing its third season.
