When I say “Swiss army knife” I’m not talkin’ about the kind that makes your hand shake because you’re tryin’ to get your finger nails in that GD little groove in hopes of pulling out ONE blade…aka every Swiss Army Knife. Donald Glover is the kind that comes equipped with a blade for each ability and emotion that he can effortlessly evoke and he pulled them all out on last Saturday. As host and musical guest he made you laugh, dance and think.
THINK/DANCE: “This Is America” – flip over the light melody and you’ll see the real reflection of our culture. He performed it on SNL, but watch the official video for the full effect.
LAUGH/DANCE: “Friendos” – Migos goes to therapy and I can’t stop saying “skeet skeet.”
KANYE: This one will make you laugh and cry on the inside because it’s about all of us.
DANCE/LAUGH: “80s Music Video”
As someone who cannot remember jack sh*t…let’s take a moment to celebrate my brain for pulling this from my “80s music idiot savant brain file” without one google search.
