Issa Rae Takes Charge On Cosmopolitan Magazine Latest Issue

Actress Issa Rae is the cover girl for Cosmopolitan’s lastest issue. She’s seen in bright patterns and prints.

In the magazine, she recalls, her failures, win & success, her reaction towards supporting black creatives and her journey in whole.

Here is her interview with Cosmopolitan

On giving opportunities to black creatives

She wants to know “who’s hungry” and surround herself with other black creatives so she “can just work. We don’t have to break things down. We understand each other. For me, it’s just about finding who’s got it, who’s got something to say, and who just feels down and with it.”

On fear and failure

“Candidly, it’s terrifying,” says Issa, as we talk about buzzy, big projects like The Photograph…“The bigger you are and the more people know your name, the more people you’re stumbling in front of.”

On impostor syndrome

“It almost just feels like I fooled people. Ha, ha, you put me on a magazine cover.” …“The blessing is like, Okay, I can for sure make my own opportunities, and that’s fun,” she explains. “But I also want to be able to…I want to deserve to be here, and that’s part of what keeps me up at night.”

On her legacy.

“I want to be a pop culture staple—a black pop culture staple,” she says. “I want to have an impact on my community. Everything I’ve done has been for—and in thinking of—black people, and I don’t take this moment lightly. I want to do right by us, at the end of the day.”
