Let’s be honest… we’re still reeling from last night’s season three premiere of Issa Rae’s Emmy award nominated HBO series – Insecure. And as we mourned the loss of her longtime beau Lawrence, we were made mostly whole again by more scenes with her gorgeous new roommate, Daniel.
This is that time of year where Issa dominates everything under the sun! She’s even the cover girl for Ebony Magazine’s September issue – and yes, she SLAYED!
So it didn’t come as a huge surprise (well, at least not to us) when Rihanna took to Instagram to announce the news that Issa Rae will be hosting her fourth annual Diamond Ball.
“So excited to announce that my sis @issarae is hosting this year’s #DiamondBall in exactly one month!! AND @childishgambino is closing out the night with a special performance!”
The event is set to take place in NYC on September 13th and proceeds will benefit the Clara Lionel Foundation which “supports and funds groundbreaking and effective education, health and emergency response programs around the world. With the voices of Rihanna and her fans, CLF also engages in global advocacy with the goal of improving the quality of life for young people everywhere.”
RiRi is also offering fans a chance to attend the Diamond Ball. The lucky winner will be flown out to New York, put up in a five-star hotel and even walk the red carpet! If you’d like to find out more deets, click here.
