Hey, I'm Issa Rae, and I'm playing Love it or Leave it
00:02
with Glamour.
00:04
(upbeat music)
00:09
Turning 30?
00:11
Love it!
00:12
Embrace, I cannot wait to get old.
00:14
I think old people get a bad rep, and
00:17
not that 30 is old.
00:19
I'm just saying like I'm a 30,
00:20
and I feel young and great and vivacious.
00:23
But I wouldn't mind being old.
00:25
Love it!
00:26
(laughs)
00:27
You really did your research!
00:31
Tambourine?
00:32
Love it!
00:33
Have you, first of all,
00:35
it's just basically a stick with bells on it,
00:38
and it lights up people's lives.
00:40
And you can make your own music.
00:42
You can dance to it.
00:43
You can make an entrance.
00:44
Shower scenes?
00:46
Leave it.
00:47
It just doesn't work.
00:48
It doesn't work in real life,
00:49
and it doesn't work on set.
00:50
Arrested Development?
00:52
Love it.
00:52
Love every scene.
00:54
Her?
00:55
I've made a huge mistake.
00:57
I feel like that's what Donald Trump said after
00:59
(laughs) he won the election,
01:00
and he was sitting there thinking.
01:02
He was like, I've made a huge mistake.
01:04
And he's right.
01:05
Everybody in America is gonna be saying that.
01:08
Being awkward?
01:10
I would've said leave it in the past.
01:12
Now, I love it.
01:13
I embrace it.
01:14
It's what makes me me.
01:15
It's why I'm here.
01:16
It's why I'm talking to you.
01:17
The YouTube comment section,
01:19
you know what?
01:20
I can love it or leave it.
01:22
(sighs)
01:23
But it really humbles me.
01:25
It has the best feedback.
01:28
And people who love what you put out,
01:31
that's a rewarding thing.
01:33
So I don't know.
01:33
I go back and forth.
01:35
Sometimes it hurts my feelings,
01:36
but sometimes it makes me happy.
01:37
Prosecco and whiskey!
01:39
Love it!
01:40
I would love to say that I made that combination up.
01:42
I was looking for a drink that made me feel classy
01:47
but that was like low in calories.
01:49
And so that's the perfect combination.
01:52
I call it the Classy B.
01:53
Classy Bih. (laughs)
01:55
And it's the best drink ever.
01:57
Try it.
