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”. I assume that means she falls in love with a royal. And I assume it’s a romantic comedy because we need something to provide relief from the horror—existential and actual—of life right now. Full Story

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

This is a post about Issa Rae. I swear this is a post about Issa Rae. I feel slightly guilty for naming a post about Issa Rae after a male character on her show instead of her but you know what, she is responsible for giving us Nathan and for that we are forever indebted, so I am not sorry. Our collective thirst for Nathan is really a reflection of the solid writing and casting on Insecure, which is a direct compliment to Issa Rae. Full Story

On Saturday, HBO held a block party at Banc of California Stadium to promote the new season of Insecure. HBO held a whole ass block party in a stadium to premiere an episode of a TV show. They don’t normally do this. Insecure is a show that transcends television. Like everything Issa Rae does, it’s for the culture Full Story

At the 2017 Emmys, Issa Rae had just been named CoverGirl’s latest face. Issa was asked about what working with CoverGirl meant to her in almost every red carpet interview that night.  “I remember just being in high school, seeing the ads, but you never, ever imagine 'someday I could be a CoverGirl. Full Story

“Single. 30. Thriving”

Those words open the Insecure Season 3 trailer. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that “single” is the focus here. Issa is living with – but not sleeping with – Daniel. Molly is allegedly done with Waste Man Dro and Kelli is living her best life as usual dropping comedy gems. Full Story

The first trailer for The Hate U Give dropped during the BET Awards last night. If you’ve been reading this site, you know how I feel about Angie Thomas’s novel The Hate U Give. You know how Lainey feels about it. We’ve haven’t been subtle about how much we were moved by the story of Starr Carter and her best friend Khalil. Full Story

Let me tell you all the ways I love Issa Rae. She's given me a lot of reasons to love her lately. First, let's start with the CFDAs. She hosted the awards, looking flawless per usual, rocking the sh-t out of a Pyer Moss gown. The gown is great but it's the belt that I want to focus on. Issa's belt reads: Every N---- is a Star  The belt was Pyer Moss designer Kerby Jean-Raymond's idea. Full Story
