Issa Rae is on the cover of the June 2020 issue of Cosmopolitan. Inside, the Insecure star revealed what she'd like for her legacy to be. She said, “I want to be a pop culture staple—a black pop culture staple. I want to have an impact on my community. Everything I’ve done has been for—and in thinking of—black people, and I don’t take this moment lightly. I want to do right by us, at the end of the day.”

Issa has admitted that with all of her success, she still feels like she has something to prove. She explained, “The blessing is like, Okay, I can for sure make my own opportunities, and that’s fun. But I also want to be able to … I want to deserve to be here, and that’s part of what keeps me up at night.” She added, “It almost just feels like I fooled people. Ha, ha, you put me on a magazine cover.”

Issa also revealed whether she felt any pressure about this season of Insecure and she said, ” . . . up until now, I hadn’t. This f*cking virus changed everything. Most of my mentions have been like, ‘Drop it, girl, stop playing, drop all the episodes at once’—like I’m HBO. And I’m like, What the f*ck? We’re literally still mixing and editing.”
