Zoe Saldana recently spoke with HipHollywood, giving her response to the overwhelming backlash about her being casted as Nina Simone in an upcoming biopic.
Ok girl. Real poetic. But I still wonder does she really know what Nina Simone stood for? What Nina worked so hard for her legacy to mean to all the Brown skin girls. I do feel that her response lacks understanding of Nina’s legacy and her fight against the status quo Ango-saxon approach to beauty. It’s not an issue of race. It’s an issue of prosthetic noses and afro wigs on an actress who is not that great of an actor to justify any of this. Maybe we will all be surprised tho. I’ll be streaming it when it hits theaters with my $1 bag of popcorn so I can skim through it. What do you ladies think of her response?
