Atlanta star/creator Donald Glover generously donated some time to Stephen Colbert’s Late Show Wednesday. When asked why he maintains such a prolific output across multiple formats, Glover told Colbert, “Curiosity.”
“I’m really curious about the way things work,” he said. “I think I always have been. Also, I was raised Jehova’s Witness so I didn’t have a lot of things growing up, like, a lot of things from the world. I was always taught that the world was kind of a bad place, so whenever things came in, I’d be like ‘Yo, this is really dope.'” Those things, he added, included TV, magic, and birthday celebrations. “All the little things that a lot of people get when they’re younger were really fascinating to me when I was older,” he said. Later in the interview, Colbert introduced Glover to Charity Joy, the Girl Scout from Atlanta who went viral with her cookie-promoting cover of Gambino’s “Redbone.” Wisely, Glover immediately purchased 113 boxes of Thin Mints. “They’re vegan,” he noted.
