'Insecure' Returns In Less Than One Week & We Have Questions

On April 12, Issa and her crew are returning to a living room near you and I'm here for all the tea.

Culture & Entertainment

If 2020 was a food, it would be potato salad. With raisins.

No shade to people who f*ck with potato salad heavy but it's only April and it's safe to say that this has been a long ass year. Over the course of a few weeks, our country has transformed entirely and we have no idea how long this crisis will last.

These days, it feels good as hell to have something to look forward to and after a two-year hiatus, our good sis Issa Rae has finally pulled up with 10 new episodes of Insecure that will keep us distracted from the chaos in the best way.

It's been 29 long months since our besties in our head blessed our television screens and after taking some time to get their creativity (and their bank accounts) all the way in alignment, on April 12, Issa and her crew are returning to a living room near you, proving that every self-quarantine has a silver lining.

In a recent interview with Teen Vogue, Issa explained that with a revamped team of writers and a newfound sense of urgency to give fans a reason to smile, she's lit AF about the premiere of Season 4. She explained:

"With 'Insecure' and other shows, people are looking for an escape and they get to go into this world where a pandemic doesn't exist and laugh and be immersed in somebody else's stuff."

Although last season may have taken the characters (and our emotions) on one helluva rollercoaster, Issa says that we can rest assured that this season will feature even more twists and turns.

"I love this season so much. Season three we always knew was the building season. In the [writer's room], we were always like, 'Ooh, season four going to be lit!' [This season is] just about asking the question: Are people in your life for a reason or a season?"

With less than a week left until the premiere, we have our popcorn and wine ret to go but I've had a lot of time to think over the past two years, and after rewatching Season 3, I realize that there are some serious questions that need answers in the new season.

For example...

Are Issa And Molly Growing Apart?

Since Season One, we've seen see Issa Dee and Molly go through the same drama that all besties go through. But is it me, or does it seem like their disagreements hit a lil different in the last season *insert eyes emoji*?

With Molly in a new relationship and Issa exploring new career opportunities, is it possible that this dynamic duo will be doing some social distancing of their own in the new season?

Will Kelli and Tiffany Rekindle Their Friendship?

Speaking of growing apart, tension was high AF between Kelli and Tiffany last season and I'm anxious to see how motherhood has an effect on their already rocky relationship.

Does Issa Give Nathan Another Shot?

Being ghosted is grounds to square up if you ask me. While I don't condone domestic violence in any way, it's safe to say that we all wanted someone to knock Nathan's block off at the end of last season. We were rooting for you!

In previous interviews, Issa revealed that she'll be playing the field with a few suitors, we're curious AF to know if Nathan is one of them.

Does Lawrence Actually Have… A Girlfriend?

And… it's Issa's friend?

I can't lie. Part of me kind of wanted to see Lawrence and Issa try to work it out one last time, but their breakup is part of what makes the show relatable AF. Relationships end. People move on. Preferably not with someone you know but hey, whatever. I'm here for the tea.

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.

Period pain. Lawd. Could there be something that is more annoying, especially since it happens every 28-30 days? Like, c'mon. If you've ever wondered about the science behind it all, basically, we need our uterus to contract, so that it can shed the lining that accumulated, just in case we conceived in between cycles. And so, what basically happens is, the prostaglandins levels in our system increase which trigger inflammation and also period pain, so that the blood is able to flow from our bodies.

One of my favorite things about the changing seasons are the new vibes and new energies that change welcomes with it. September represents a transition from the white sand beaches, bottomless brunches, and undeniable romantic vibes long nights, festivals, and impromptu road trips often thought of when we think about the summer. In its place comes romanticism in a different approach. Pumpkin spice anything, the excuse to cuddle up, and the leaves of the trees turning warm shades sparks joy in a different way as fall begins. Perhaps what I am most excited about though are the 2021 wellness trends that come with it.

A few days ago, I was having a conversation with some folks about songs that should've been official singles yet never were. One of the ones that I shared was Mariah Carey's "All Alone in Love" (a song that she wrote when she was only 15, by the way). To me, it's a perfect way to intro this piece because I have had enough personal experiences and counseled enough people to know that it is very possible to be in a relationship with someone — and still feel quite alone in it. Not because your partner doesn't love you. Not because they're up to some totally f'ed up shenanigans. It's just…even though you signed up for a true and lasting partnership, somehow you now feel some of the very words that define what being alone can feel like: unattended, detached, unassisted, semi-compassionless and perhaps even abandoned on some levels.
