The South African comedian and host of “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” 36, talked to the magazine about how this year has been “one of the most liberating years mentally and emotionally.”
“It freed me from a lot of the paradigms and anchors that I had created for myself,” Noah said.
He said this year allowed him to feel more free to be experimental with the show.
“The first part of the show was trying to just provide a moment of respite,” he explained. “The second thing I’m trying to do is keep myself and my audience informed of what is happening so that you don’t have to live on social media, so that you don’t have to do 24 hours of cable news, so that you don’t have to watch people fighting the whole time.”
He also talked about his battle with depression.
“Sometimes you wake up and you’re like, ‘I don’t want to do this today.’ That’s one of the greatest blessings that ‘The Daily Show’ has given me. One of the best things for depression is routine and goal-oriented tasks,” he said. “Every day I have to make a show. Every day I have to finish the show. Every day I have to let go of the show.”
Noah shares this year’s issue with George Clooney, who was named the 2020 Icon of the Year.
GQ named Megan Thee Stallion the 2020 Rapper of the Year. She spoke to her musical domination, from “Savage” to “WAP” and to her headline-making appearances on “Saturday Night Live” and more.
“I feel like men think that they own sex, and I feel like it scares them when women own sex,” she told the magazine.
The December 2020 issue of GQ is available now.
