Where was Donald Glover at the GRAMMYs after Childish Gambino’s - CBS News 8 - San Diego, CA News Station - KFMB Channel 8

Where was Donald Glover at the GRAMMYs after Childish Gambino’s big wins?

Posted: Updated:

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. 

He was asked a second time about Glover’s whereabouts, and Goransson responded that he tried calling and it wouldn’t go through. 

Glover did attend Goransson’s pre-GRAMMYs party on Thursday night in Los Angeles, debuting his epic new blonde beard, so we know he was in town just days before the award show. 

Glover gave fans no indication of his location on social media. His Twitter account has been recently wiped and there are only three videos up on his Instagram account. 

Glover wasn’t the only artist to win and not attend the 2019 GRAMMYs. Ariana Grande picked up her first ever award for Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener after publicly boycotting the show.
