Everyone’s fave Childish Gambino, aka Donald Glover, has just premiered his new bleached beard and people are having a lot of feelings about it. Stepping out with his new lewk at a pre-Grammys party, the bleached scruff has since been featured all over twitter. This has come after announcing early last year that he was working on his last Gambino album and retiring from music for a bit.
Since then, he’s been working on his return to our screens and has landed two massive big screen roles. After the success of his TV series Atlanta, Glover booked the 2018 role of young Lando Calrissian in the Star Wars prequel, Solo: A Star Wars Story. He’s since been working on the role of Simba in the coming Lion King remake, opposite Beyoncé.
With all this movement and change in Glover’s career, I’m starting to wonder if maybe this is his version of cutting bangs. Y’know, we’ve all been there. The infamous post breakup/graduation/mental breakdown hair change. I had a pixie cut for a year after high school. It happens to the best of us.
Regardless of his reasons, his facial hair is now blonde, and people are feeling things about it.
Some people are into it…
childish gambino still looks 11/10 with the bleached beard and this has further proved my theory that he just cannot be unattractive, thank you for coming to my ted talk
