The public and especially daughter of a memorable entertainer is criticizing Zoe Saldana saying that she isn’t the actress who should be playing the role of Singer Nina Simone. Nina Simone is the epitome of a soulful and beautiful African American Singer. Obviously, she was so Afro that the make-up crews set of the Bio movie had to load Saldana’s face with Black make-up so that she could appear as dark as the REAL Nina Simone.
This is what Zoe says about her starring role in the Nina Simone movie:
”What kept me from getting stressed and being hurt by the negative comments is that I’m doing it for my sisters and my brothers and I don’t care who tells me I’m not this or I’m not that. I know who I am and I know what Nina Simone means to me.”
“I did it all for love. Out of love for Nina, my people and who I am and my pride of being a Black woman and a Latina woman and an American woman. That’s my truth.”
