Crying Real Tears: An 'Insecure' Documentary Is Coming Soon

We're not okay, okay?!

Culture & Entertainment

It’s really happening! After five seasons, Insecure is coming to an end. And to make the ending of the culture-shifting series more emotional, Issa Rae and her team are giving us a documentary. Appropriately titled Insecure: The End, the documentary will give viewers an inside look into the making of the popular HBO series and interviews with cast members such as Issa Rae, who plays Issa Dee, Jay Ellis who plays Lawrence, and Natasha Rothwell who plays Kelli (and also doubles as a writer and supervising producer on the series).


Issa first announced the documentary on her social media pages. “The End, okay?! Produced by the incredible @msdeniese & directed by the phenomenal @jrbland— the documentary special Insecure: The End, streams Sunday, December 26th on @HBOMax.”

Many fans of the show responded emotionally to the tweet.

Insecure has two episodes left and fans have no idea how it’s going to end due to what seems like a (spoiler alert) love triangle between Issa, Lawrence, and Nathan. The star and creator of the show revealed in October that she even changed the ending two weeks before shooting the finale.

"Thank God I had a burst of inspiration of what I wanted it to be, and that's what we ended up shooting," Issa toldEntertainment Weekly. "I stand by it, I like it."

"The other one was good, too, but it just didn't feel like the most [satisfying]. It didn't feel like our show. I can't wait to talk about it when it airs to see if I made the wrong decision."

Uh, the anticipation!

Insecure first premiered in October 2016 and immediately struck a chord with predominantly Black audiences due to its authenticity and the writers and actors' devotion to portraying us in a real way.

The Insecure “Season Byeve” finale is set to air on December 26.

From Classical To Heart: All The Different Styles A Vagina Can Be

When was the last time you held a mirror and took a good look at your pussy? I mean a real hard look at it. What does she look like? Is your vagina normal? Several years ago, I received a DM from a young lady asking me this very question. She wanted to know if her vagina looked “normal.” She went on to explain that her pussy wasn’t as "pretty" as the ones she’d seen in porn and how insecure that made her feel. I can totally relate to her insecurities. I couldn’t begin to tell you how many jokes I’ve heard over the years from men about women and their vaginas. I would be lying if I said I’ve never pondered the same.

5 Benefits Of Matcha That Will Make You Want To Drink It Every Day

For as long as I can remember, I have been a lowkey-highkey caffeine addict. Don't let them fool you, caffeine is most definitely a drug. And while some might argue that it is healthier to consume coffee versus beverages like energy drinks or sodas, there is a thin line between its pros and cons. Starting my day with coffee has become a bit of a ritual as much as it has become a necessity. Without it, the caffeine withdrawal would lead to a splitting headache, a decrease in energy, and that infamous midday slump. It hardly seemed worth it to switch my habit to something healthier. However, after doing some research, I decided to make the switch (at least part-time) to drinking matcha.
