Donald Glover Tells 'Wired' He Decided To Write For TV Because Of Tina Fey!

Donald Glover sheds a tear in this artsy shot from Wired magazine’s February issue, which hits newsstands everywhere on January 24!

Here’s what the 33-year-old Golden Globe-winning Atlanta star had to share with the mag:

On why he wanted to start writing for television: “I decided I wanted to write for television because of Tina [Fey]. She was always so happy, and I was like, I want to be happy like that too.”

On Bernie Mac and Dave Chappelle being his inspiration for Atlanta: “Those shows were so honest and so true. Bernie Mac had a sister who was a crack addict on the show. It wasn’t funny, but it was real.”

On his experimental album release event and the absence of social media: “Today, kids’ idea of going to a concert is proving that they are there on Snapchat or Instagram. We wanted to give them a complete show and have their attention.”
