Hoo boy. Community‘s Donald Glover is really going through something, you guys.
About 19 hours ago, the writer-actor-comedian-rapper — still best known for playing Troy Barnes on NBC’s meta-sitcom — began posting a series of angsty, introspective messages on Instagram. The notes, handwritten on a Marriott Residence Inn pad (tagline: ‘Ideas Worth Saving”), chronicle a host of Glover’s insecurities, some serious (“I’m afraid of the future”), some that seem to be tongue-in-cheek (“I’m afraid that this will feel pretentious”), and some about Tyrese (“I’m scared I’ll be Tyrese”).
Glover followed his catalog of fears with another series of notes that address his upcoming exit from Community – Glover will reportedly appear in just five of the show’s upcoming 13 episodes — as well as his frustration with his record label, Glassnote. Apparently, Glover is hoping to release his next Childish Gambino album in December — but according to him, Glassnote has rejected that idea “’cause it’s not a holiday record and I’m not a big artist.”
