Earlier this week Childish Gambino posted a series of notes on Instagram, where he spoke candidly about his life and feelings. This led fans and critics alike to believe Gambino could be suffering from depression. However, the actor turned rapper cleared the air with People Magazine recently, explaining that is not the case. Gambino told the magazine: "If I'm depressed, everybody's depressed, I don't think those feelings are that different from what everybody's feeling. Most people just don't tell everybody. I was just tired of telling people I was tired. It felt like every day someone would ask, 'What's wrong. Are you OK?' "And I would say, 'I'm tired, I'm tired.' I didn't want to do that anymore. I guess sometimes not telling the truth is just as bad as telling a lie."  He went on to say: "I'm glad people saw it. I feel like I got some stuff out there," he says. "I got it off my chest. It felt like I had been holding on to something."  You can read his original Instagram notes, right here.
