Singer and actor Janelle Monáe offered her thoughts on “Atlanta” star Donald Glover, and whether his list of talents stack up to her own abilities as an entertainer. (You can watch Monáe weigh in on Glover at around the 8:43 mark in the clip below.)
Monáe, who is nonbinary and uses both they/them and she/her pronouns, opened up to fellow “Glass Onion” actor Kate Hudson about Glover’s “triple threat” as an entertainer with his singing, acting and dancing abilities.
Monáe was a headliner at the 2019 Coachella music festival along with Glover, who makes music under the name Childish Gambino.
Hudson, who hit Monáe with questions during a so-called “lie detector test” interview with Vanity Fair, asked the “Dirty Computer” musician about Glover and whether she likes to share the spotlight.
Hudson later asked Monáe if she is a better actress, singer and dancer than the “This Is America” artist.
“You know what, Childish, I love you but I think yes, I would [say so],” Monáe said. “I mean, should I lie? I love you, Childish.”
Her answer didn’t trip the lie detector (not that polygraph machines are infallible.)
