Issa Rae Vs. The World’s Hottest Hot Wings (Video)

Wow! Issa was hungry enough to take down those wings and face down the heat. She’s a G! Probably rather take the heat from eating wings than from #LawrenceHive

Issa Rae is the Emmy-nominated creator and star of HBO’s hit series Insecure, which just launched its third season (Sundays, 10:30 pm EST). But how is she with spicy food? Find out as the multitalented writer, producer, and actress traces her “glow up” from the dorm rooms of Stanford to heights of TV. As she battles the wings of death, Issa breaks down millennial dating terms, explains how she may have inspired Cardi B, and graces the Hot Ones stage with one of its most memorable musical performances.

“The Hate U Give” Shows How Hard It Is To Do Right When It All Goes Wrong (Trailer)

Halfway through watching this, you might have your mind made up as to whether or not Starr (with two r’s) should speak up… but keep watching. You KNOW it is not that cut-and-dry, and this trailer bears that out. Looks like a good flick to catch. In Theaters October 19, 2018.

Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly Black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right. THE HATE U GIVE is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas and stars Amandla Stenberg as Starr, with Regina Hall, Russell Hornsby, Issa Rae, KJ Apa, Algee Smith, Sabrina Carpenter, Common and Anthony Mackie.

Being Broke: Ain’t That A Mother? (Video)

Issa Rae is always (1) looking super-cute and (2) saying something worthwhile (even when she is being funny). Here she explains to Roland Martin how she got something going when she had nothing in her pockets or going for her. Grind meets Creativity on the ultimate plane of existence; a ‘starving artist’ who found ways to feed herself… steak!

(Amazing what she did with a little lot of help from her friends.)

Issa Rae Speaks On The Success Of ‘Insecure’ And Her ‘Awkward’ Time With Drake (Video)

I’m a red-blooded woman, and I love male body parts.

Yeah, ol’ sexy smooth choco-skinned Issa Rae does it for me. Gotta admit. I don’t even watch ‘The View’ but seeing Issa… had to give a watch. She talks about fans taking the show seriously enough to ‘come for her in her mentions’ due to her cheating, on purposefully including lots of male nudity in her episodes (because, see the quote above), and she talks about the time she met Drake and…

…just watch.

Issa Rae Shares Her Excitement About Season 2 Of “Insecure” And Her Insights On ‘Hoery’ (Video)

I wanna spend some precious moments rubbing on Issa Rae’s beautiful skin.

Okay, it’s out there. Is that ‘awkward’ (and if so, does that boost the chances of making that happen)? I’m asking. The answer won’t change my desire to do so though.

Soooo, this is Issa back on the radio with the pre-Season 2 promo for her “Insecure” series on HBO. Well worth catching up on if you have not done so already (only two episodes down this season). Also, hear her addressing Regina Hall’s implication of f*cking her way to the top, insights on women and their hoe phase, and she ‘big ups’ some of her co-stars. Lots in this interview.

Issa Rae Shares Some Of Her Real-Life ‘Awkward Black Girl’ Stories And Talks About Her Her HBO Show ‘Insecure’ (Video)

Nice interview short Issa Rae did with Stephen Colbert as she was making the rounds promoting the second season of her acclaimed HBO original series “Insecure.” Have you peeped that yet, by the way? I am withholding judgment overall; some things going on this season I can f**ks with, other stuff not so much… But I am not sure if one of those not-so-much things will trigger a permanent Sunday night channel change for me. We’ll see.

Just had to get that off. Not even the main thing in the clip above.

HBO’s ‘Insecure’ creator and star Issa Rae isn’t equipped with an all-knowing omnipotence to answer any question that begins with ‘Do black people…?’

Bwaaahahaaa! ‘Blaccent’ is gonna be my new word for a while. Girrrrrl!

Insecure As F**k: Season 1, Episode 1 (HBO) [Video]

Good to see. DEFINITELY! New perspectives on comedy, no filter as far as we can see. We saw it from Donald Glover (“Atlanta” on FX is really good). Now, we see Issa doing her thing…on HBO! Watch the full ep. Not a trailer. No bootleg. Straight from Issa herself.

In the wake of her 29th birthday, Issa Dee and her best friend Molly reconsider their life choices.

Watch the half-hour comedy series Insecure, starring Issa Rae, Yvonne Orji, Jay Ellis and Lisa Joyce. Created and executive produced by Issa Rae, this eight-episode series is also executive produced by Prentice Penny, Melina Matsoukas, Michael Rotenberg, Dave Beck, Jonathan Berry, and Larry Wilmore as a consultant.

Insecure airs Sundays at 10:30PM on HBO.

Larry Wilmore attached. POWER move (do your research… the man behind “The Bernie Mac Show” to “Blackish”… too real for Comedy Central, but good while it lasted)!
