The photos were of statements Glover had scribbled on a hotel notepad, such as "I'm afraid of the future," "I'm scared I'll never reach my potential," and "I feel like I'm letting everyone down." But Childish Gambino now says these notes were not a cry for help but rather a way for him to vent.

Speaking with People magazine yesterday, Glover said "That night, we had a show, and then afterwards, I had this moment of feeling like, 'What's the point? Why am I even here?' ... I just wanted to write down my feelings. I definitely was just expressing myself."

"If I'm depressed, everybody's depressed," the "Community" actor added. "I don't think those feelings are that different from what everybody's feeling. Most people just don't tell everybody." Glover told People he's happy he vented and "got it off my chest."
