We Found Nathan: Here's What He Really Thinks About Ghosting

I’ll be the first to admit that Insecure’s “Obsessed-Like” episode put me all the way in my feelings. That helpless feeling you have after someone ghosts you is one of the most trash feelings ever. If you haven’t been ghosted at this point in your life, brace yourself because the way life is set up, it’ll probably…

The VSB Group Chat: Insecure Season 3, Episode 6, 'Ready-Like'

The #LawrenceHive got to sing praises and rejoice when Lawrence popped up on Issa at the convenient store in Episode 5. Now his storyline is back and in full swing (both literally and figuratively) on Insecure. We also get to see a bit more about the (d)evolving relationships of the Fearsome Foursome. Let’s roll into…

Is It Safe? How Insecure Can Be a Force in Shaping Black Women’s Sexual Health

If you watched Sunday night’s episode of Insecure you found out that Lawrence is out here burning folks. Kudos to the show for showing some of the negative health effects of what happens if you engage in unsafe sex, as well as showing Lawrence in true “good dude” form calling all of his sexual partners and telling…

Ahead of the 2018 Emmys, Tracee Ellis Ross and Issa Rae Bring Us #BlackGirlMagic—on a Boat!

Summer may be ending, but the 2018 Emmys are the perfect kickoff to Fall’s television season, which traditionally heralds the return of two of our all-time favorites, Tracee Ellis Ross and Issa Rae. But while we’re already woefully near the end of Insecure’s third season and black-ish doesn’t return until October 16,…

The VSB Group Chat: Insecure Season 3, Episode 5, 'High-Like' Recap

It’s Beyonce or bust for Issa and her girlfriends as they head to Coachella. After what’s been an interesting buildup and letdown with Issa and Daniel and now Issa and Nathan and Molly’s persistent work issues, the ladies needed a break. And with Beyonce on the line?!? #letsgo But ain’t no way this crew wasn’t going…

Film Noir: Issa Rae Gets Dramatic for Glamour's October Issue—and Claps Back at Melania's Camp

Issa Rae is happy—and why shouldn’t she be? She’s the creator and star of a hit show in its third season, in the process of creating several more projects, has a contract with CoverGirl and has quickly become a bona fide fashion star in her own right. (CFDA Awards, anyone?) And now, she’s the star of Glamour…

Issa Rae Says Insecure Would Not Work With a Predominantly White Staff

Insecure is now in its third season, and the show’s success lies in its unapologetic blackness—something that the black people who watch it can relate to. In a recent interview, Issa Rae said the show’s magic is rooted in its predominantly minority crew and the fact that it doesn’t try to explain blackness to nonblack…

It's Not Unrealistic for Issa on Insecure to Be 30 With Multiple Jobs and Homeless Because I've Been That Too

The characters on Insecure sometimes make decisions that make me question if they were born on the same Earth that other earthlings inhabit. (For instance, Lawrence in season 2 bringing Aparna to Tiffany’s birthday dinner from hell.) Also, I agree with Vulture’s Jasmine Sanders in that the writers sometimes seem to be…
