Issa Rae on Staying True to Herself: 'All I Know Is Who I Am'

Issa Rae is on the cover of Glamour magazine’s new issue.

Here’s what the Insecure star had to share with the mag…

On Michelle Obama telling her she watches Insecure: “I was like, ‘You really watch it?’ She was like, ‘Yes. Sasha and Malia put me on to it.’…It bums me out that I will never have that feeling again of the First Family f*cking with us so hard and getting us. If Melania said that to me, I would be like, ‘Well, I guess it’s canceled. We’re not making this show. It’s not ours anymore.’”

On the backlash to her upcoming show, Him or Her, about the dating life of a bisexual black male comedian: “[Being queer] is the experience of lots of black men, and it’s like, ‘Why would you try to prevent that story from being told? Who are you to tell him that his story isn’t valid.”

On being herself: “All I know is who I am. At the end of the day, all I know is my intentions, and no matter what you take out of context, no matter what pictures you post, I know that I am aligned with. I know what my truth is.”

Issa Rae Gives Stephen Colbert Her Favorite Advice: 'Don't Be Afraid To Be A Bitch'

Issa Rae stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last night (August 9) ahead of Sunday’s return (August 12) of her Emmy-nominated HBO show Insecure!

The 33-yeare-old talked about meeting celebrities, her mom’s concern for the show’s racy content and cleared up rumors that she turned down Drake at a Golden Globes party.

Issa also talked about getting approached by up-and-coming talent for advice and admitted sometimes she doesn’t “know what to tell them because everybody’s journey is different.”

“As a showrunner, being in the industry, just as a woman, once you’re labeled like difficult, your career is kinda over, cuz then it’s like everybody’s saying, ‘Oh she’s hard to work with, beware,’ and then you don’t get many chances to fail,” Issa said.

The biggest slice of advice Rae could offer, though, came from a few of her Hollywood leading women friends — Shonda Rhimes, Ava DuVernay, Mara Brock Akil and Debbie Allen. “Don’t be afraid to be a b***h,” Rae said. “And it’s so true.”

That same day, Issa posed at Samsung’s After Unpacked: An Evening for the Rest of Us event held at Samsung 837 where the company revealed the all-new Samsung Galaxy Note9.


Issa Rae’s Favorite Advice: ‘Don’t Be Afraid To Be A Bitch’

FYI: Issa is wearing Alexis Bittar earrings and the Sergio Rossi Karen sandal.
