Donald Glover has compared himself to Jesus.
The 34-year-old singer-and-actor feels he has been ''chosen'' for a greater purpose, like the Son of God, and doesn't believe there's anything he can't do.
Asked if he's bad at anything, he said: ''To be honest, no. Probably just people. People don't like to be studied, or bested. I'm fine with it. I don't really like people that much.
''People accept me now because I have power, but they still think, Oh, he thinks he's the golden flower of the black community, thinks he's so different. But I am, though!
''I feel like Jesus. I do feel chosen.
''My struggle is to use my humanity to create a classic work--but I don't know if humanity is worth it, or if we're going to make it. I don't know if there's much time left.''
Donald - whose music is recorded and performed under the alias Childish Gambino - went on to slam Lady Gaga, insisting he has more talent than the 'Born This Way' hitmaker.
He told The New Yorker: ''I went to school with white people who had less talent than me - because I'm talented as f**k - and they're doing way better than me. I went to N.Y.U. with Lady Gaga.''
And the 'Atlanta' creator admitted he even thought about pulling out of his performance at the Grammy awards because he was unhappy at the way he was portrayed in advertising - but still took to the stage because he realised it was an opportunity given to few black artists,
He said: ''Now, CBS ran Grammys ads this week, and I'm one of the hotter acts, and they had a visual of the performers on the show: Lady Gaga, Pink, and me.
''Only they showed some black kid from a fan video--it's not even me. I was, like, F**k this, f**k them, I'm not going to do the show!
''The sad thing is I'm going to do it, because black people don't get that chance very often.''
Donald believes he is ''better'' than legendary comic Chris Rock because he was able to study the 53-year-old star when he was younger.
He said: ''Chris Rock told me, 'Man, they wouldn't have let me make your show back in the day.' I'm a little better than Chris, because I had Chris to study.''
And Donald is already on the lookout for a black woman to ''replace'' him one day.
He said: ''Now I am actively looking for the black female to replace me.
''I'm going to die someday, I hope. Then I won't have all this pain and anguish and pressure. And someone better will replace me. If God exists, all she really wants is a conversation.''
