Issa Rae Quizzes ‘Insecure’ Superfan SZA On The Show’s Biggest Moments

Published

on

Aside from being featured on the show’s soundtrack (on the song “Quicksand“), SZA is the self-declared “biggest fan” of the HBO show Insecure. The show’s writer, producer, and star Issa Rae put SZA’s knowledge to the test on behalf of Billboard for the publication’s Quizzed series, challenging her on a video chat with questions from the show’s biggest moments.

After the two discuss their respective smoking/drinking habits — Issa drinks but doesn’t smoke, SZA smokes but doesn’t drink — they commence with the questions, which include a “true-or-false” round, a general trivia round, and a quotes round. SZA gets five of seven of the true-or-false questions correct, missing the names of Lawrence’s app and Issae’s rap alter ego. In the general trivia section, SZA garners a perfect score, displaying near-perfect recall of some of the show’s funniest moments, including the wine-down apartment fire and the name of Molly’s dog.

Unfortunately, the “Hit Different” singer doesn’t wind up answering any questions from Issa about her new music. While she argued with TDE president Punch about not having a release date, she told her fans her music wasn’t being held hostage but that she just goes back-and-forth about whether she’s “strong enough” to release it.

Star Wars Star Alden Ehrenreich Pushes Back Against Narrative Surrounding Solo

It’s definitely true that the media tends to polarize not only the good and the bad but also everything in between. When it comes to Solo, there’s a lot to look at; so, let’s separate the conversation into box office and general perception. The first is box office. Was the media unfair to Solo by calling it a box office failure? Well, it’s certainly fair to call it a disappointment. The film was reportedly made for $300M according to Deadline. The film grossed a total of $392M and change worldwide. When you factor in marketing costs and percentage theaters keep, especially overseas, there’s no way the film made its money back theatrically (if the budget numbers are accurate). That being said, when you throw in home entertainment and life it’s getting out of streaming services and merchandise and what not, Solo was definitely not a disaster. It wasn’t what I’m sure Disney hoped, but sometimes that happens.

Emmys Twist: Zendaya Wins Best Lead Actress in a Drama for Euphoria

Published

Holy Emmy upset!

In a stunning twist, Zendaya won the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series prize for her work in HBO’s teen drama Euphoria, besting perceived frontrunners Jennifer Aniston and Laura Linney.

In including Zendaya among TVLine’s Dream Emmy Nominees last June, we declared, “With her dispassionate voiceovers and heavy-lidded, moody expression, it might seem at first like Euphoria‘s Rue doesn’t care about anything. But throughout the HBO drama’s eight-episode run, Zendaya found subtle, heartbreaking ways to show us that her recovering drug addict cares about everything, particularly her relationship with best friend and crush Jules. Underneath that angsty-teen exterior was a young woman trying to grasp her own identity, and we watched in awe every week as Zendaya presented new layers of Rue’s heartache and uncertainty.”
