Issa Rae is having an incredible career run at the moment, but with success comes failure — and according to Issa she failed at making Rihanna her bestie.
On The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Rae explained she ran into Riri at the Met Gala. Although the two have already met, it didn’t stop Rae from getting a bit flustered.
“I just saw her sitting at the table and I had had a few drinks,” explained Rae around the 1:50 mark above. “So I was like ‘Rihanna’s over there, let me go say hi, she knows me, we homegirls.’ And I went up to her and I was like, you know, tapped her. And she was so friendly and nice, I wasn’t expecting that, and she was like ‘Hey girl, good to see you!’ And I was like ‘Uh…oh…we’re, uh…’ and just excused myself and walked away. So any chance that we had to be best friends, I ruined it with my drunken nervousness, starstruck-ness.”
