Life is good for Donald Glover. Hit episode of Saturday Night Live, a stop everything and look music video, his upcoming show stealing turn as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, oh and Atlanta had its season finale last night. Not bad!
We also may have to add him to the list of people who believe Stevie Wonder Isn’t Really Blind.
Glover was on Kimmel last night and explained his initial interactions with the legendary musician. “I used his songs in Atlanta and you have to ask special permission. I called him, I got his number. So we’re texting, [which is] already crazy. I’m like, ‘Hey Stevie I want to use your song.’ He’s then like, ‘Well send it over, let me read it. It gets turned into Braille, gets sent to him, he reads it and then we don’t hear anything.”
Glover then called Stevie back and tells him he got the first cut back of an episode from Atlanta and wanted to use some of Stevie’s music for it. That’s when Stevie asked if he could watch the rough edit. “He just texts back like, ‘Man, I love it,'” Glover said. “All the time I’m like, ‘How’d he do that?’ Like, touching the TV screen like, ‘This is funny?'”
