By David Joshua

American writer, actress and series co-creator, Issa Rae is sending out major “ebony beauty” vibes on the latest issue of the Complex Magazine. Issa who is back for the new season of her HBO series, Insecure sat down with Senior Editor, Nadeska Alexis at Complex to talk about a slew of topics from her successful show, life goals, old TV exes and much more.She may seem like just an ordinary girl but Issa Rae has paid her dues, working her way from a YouTube web series called The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl to a successful show with HBO, Insecure, and roles in upcoming feature films. She said she grew up watching Vanessa and Rudy on The Cosby Show, Laura on Family Matters, Moesha Gina Prince-Bythewood and they inspired the woman she has grown up to be.Complex also asks Rae about a comment she made regarding Hollywood’s diversity and progress being tied to racist, old executives dying off, the star didn’t mince words in her response. “I’m happy to report that we’re making progress. People are dying,” she said in joke-y and serious manner. “Roger Ailes just died. He needed to go. it’s great. As time goes on… unfortunately we won’t be able to take advantage of it like the younger generation, but it’s happening and I feel like there are people in positions of power who wouldn’t have had an opportunity in the past that have opportunities now and who have, a firm vision and are intent on hiring the people who haven’t been hired in the past. I’m very optimistic on that. People die every day, so it’s great.”“That’s the biggest catch-22 of the situation of just trying to work in Hollywood, trying to hire younger writers, trying to hire people who aren’t in the union and who aren’t experienced,” she adds. “They’ll never get those opportunities if they don’t get a chance, and some people get a chance and blow it. OK, but at least they got one.”
Issa Rae is one stunning diva dressed in Alexander Mcqueen top, Vintage Pants and Gucci shoes for the cover feature.
