This is like Black Girl Magic on crack! Issa Rae + Solange Knowles = Pure Dopeness!

As if we couldn’t be anymore excited for the premiere of Issa’s new show Insecure, the Awkward Black Girl made sure the soundtrack would be just as good as the show by making Solo the music consultant.

During the pink carpet premiere for Insecure on Thursday night, Rae raved about Solange, her ear for fresh talent and her “fire” album, A Seat At The Table. “She’s amazing. She really took this job so seriously and she has so much access to great talent, especially in L.A. And she was just so great about listening to us”, the Insecure EP told HipHollywood. Issa also opened up about feeling “blessed” that her project is finally on the small screen and the need to constantly help the next generation of content creators. “I want to see new voices. I want to see different stories. I want to read about different experiences than mine. I think that’s when you have the most exciting content.”

Insecure debuts on HBO, Sunday, October 9th at 10:30 p.m.

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
