“Insecure” star Issa Rae portrays 90s black sitcom stars for GQ magazine photographed by Martin Schoeller.
On her genuine discomfort with being the center of attention: “I do feel like people expect me to be entertaining,” Rae says. “And I’m not. I’m not an entertaining person. I don’t put on for anybody. I think about someone like Tiffany Haddish, who’s just naturally entertaining, who always has a story. And that’s just not my lane. I’m always gonna be the shy one.”
