Donald Glover of Childish Gambino during a promo in Studio 8H on Saturday Night Live

Donald Glover was the episode's host and musical guest (as Childish Gambino), just a few weeks shy of the premiere of "Solo: A Star Wars Story", where Glover plays Lando Calrissian.

"We easily forget about the shootings and tragedies and get distracted by silly dances, memes and viral videos", twitter user T wrote. Another wrote that "Childish Gambino is what Kanye aspires to be but fails to attain".

Childish Gambino put the country in straight awe with the debut of the visual to his track, "This Is America".

This repeated exposure to acts of violence - even when that exposure comes vicariously through the media - has had a numbing effect on Americans. Each time there's a gun-related tragedy, we grieve, debate and then go back to smiling and dancing until it happens again. If you think anything other than gun and police violence, you obviously need to catch up on your celebrity politics.

Pak Interior Minister shot at in suspected assassination bid
PML-N party leader Tallal Chaudhry confirmed the Interior Minister's condition was stable and he was removed from danger. Prime Minister sought immediate report from the Inspector General of Punjab Police on the matter.

In addition to discussing the lack of black people in space at the Lando Summit, Donald Glover also sang of intergalactic love as well as why he loves alien women. There's no release date yet for the new album, but we can probably expect it sometime before the end of the year.

Friendos - With Donald Glover being such an accomplished rapper, I was hoping there would be some kind of music video parody (there were actually two), but I didn't expect this.

According to The Rolling Stone, "This Is America" features vocals from " Young Thug, 21 Savage, and Migos' Quavo as well as Rae Sremmurd's Slxm Jimmy and BlocBoy JB".

Glover's dancing is nearly mesmerizing, and definitely draws your attention away from the background - which is why ya kinda gotta watch it multiple times.
