Serving us 90’s Iconic Sitcom Vibes, Issa Rae Tells Us Why She’s ‘Fearful’ Of Failure

For her GQ cover story, the Insecure creator impersonated a few of our black TV faves, and she absolutely nailed it.

Issa Rae is out here living her best life, but she’s also realistic and scared of failure. 

During the interview, she discussed her career and when failure came up, she revealed she was still deathly afraid of it despite her successes. The 33-year-old asserted that failure is different for the face of a show than it would be for that of a writer or director

“The failure is yours,” Rae said. “It is yoursss-uh.”

When the interviewer asked her if she was still scared of failure since she’s successful, Rae seemed surprised that someone considered Insecure successful.

“That could go to s**t,” Rae said. “This could be the worst season we’ve ever had. And then what? Then people are all of a sudden like, ‘Oh, okay.’ Then the calls stop. It’s like stand-up comedy: In order to eventually succeed, you have to bomb. That’s what every comedian says—that’s when the fear goes away. And I feel like I’m still fearful because I haven’t publicly bombed yet, in terms of my career. Yeah, Insecure is successful now, but where’s my bomb coming? Where are my Will Smith bombs coming? Where, where is that happening?”

The writer tried to comfort her, but Issa responded with a quote that could have been in one of her scripts.

“He went through a period when he was depressed, when three or four of his movies in a row weren’t number one at the box office. So for him that was terrible,” she countered. “And now he’s talking about, ‘You gotta fail, you gotta fail.’ And I don’t want to make Instagram speeches about failing. I don’t.”
