Childish Gambino brings "Because the Internet" to Studio Q

Jian speaks to Childish Gambino -- the rap moniker used by Community and Girls actor Donald Glover -- about his latest album, "Because the Internet", his sometimes tense relationship with social media, and how his personal take on the world has changed over the years. In a wide-ranging chat, Glover -- who is currently in Toronto for The Deep Web Tour -- shares why he's stopped caring so much about what other people think, how it felt to retire his popular Troy Barnes character on Community, and what he was thinking when he posted some somber notes on Instagram There are too many "bullies" in the world trying to define others and put down their ideas, says Glover. He admits he's taken such pressures to heart in the past, but has since learned to trust his own creative instincts and stay grounded.
