Here’s something I didn’t know I wanted that I am now obsessed with: the trailer for The Lovebirds, a comedy starring Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani. I have watched this four times already, and will undoubtedly watch it four more times before the day is over. The Lovebirds is about a couple in love who get framed for murder and then try to solve said murder to clear their names. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Oscars this year do not have a host. But after Issa Rae and John Cho announced the nominations together yesterday, that’s the dream pairing for the internet right now. Would they want to do it though? I mean, you heard what Issa said after the Best Director nominations came out, right? Kathleen went viral when she pointed it out:  “Congratulations to those men.  Read Full Intro

The Photograph, starring Issa Rae and LaKeith Stanfield, directed by Stella Meghie, comes out on Valentine’s Day. I will be seeing it on Valentine’s Day, not with my husband but probably with Kathleen, because this is the kind of movie you want to go to with someone who appreciates a romance. Full Story

It was just this past January that it was announced that brilliantly vibrant comedian, former talk show host, and comedy writer Robin Thede would be creating A Black Lady Sketch Show on HBO. Executive produced by Thede herself and Issa Rae, it was clear that the project would be special, and it did not disappoint when it premiered last Friday. Full Story

If you haven’t seen this yet, your Friday is about to get better.  At the Women in Film gala the other night, Issa Rae was presented with the inaugural Emerging Entrepreneur award. During her acceptance speech, instead of being humble, she was …  I don’t want to say “not humble”, because that’s not the point. Full Story

Kathleen texted me on Monday night. “Are we seeing Little together opening weekend?” My response: F-CK. YES. We should see it twice.”  We are serious about this. We might see it back to back. Like Prem said Full Story

I’ve talked about how I feel about black-ish, right? If you’re new here, do a site search for “black-ish”. You should find reading material that will take up a couple of hours. I almost had a black-ish crisis the other night when I thought that the show would be preempted for Donald Trump’s primetime uselessness. Full Story

Issa Rae gets a rom-com

Well, I assume it’s a rom-com. Issa Rae will be starring in a movie called American Princess about an American woman who moves to London and falls in love “in a very unexpected way”.

Duana, Lainey, and I are fighting about Issa Rae’s powder blue jumpsuit. They didn’t like the colour. Or the fit of the crotch. I loved everything. I think the pale hue looks beautiful on her and the plunge is just right. I love that she wore pants. I know I’m biased when it comes to Issa Rae but I think I’d love this Vera Wang jumpsuit even if Jessica Biel was wearing it. Full Story
