Debates rage over pics of ‘Nina Simone’ actress Zoe Saldana wearing nappy afro wig

Over the weekend I received angry emails from readers concerned about photos of actress Zoe Saldana wearing a nappy afro wig and dark makeup in her role as the late jazz singer Nina Simone.

The 34-year-old ‘Colombiana’ star was chosen for the part from a list of dark skinned singers and actresses who were more qualified for the part.

Fans of Nina Simone have begun circulating a petition in hopes of garnering enough signatures to present to the filmmakers.

“Playing Nina Simone could be one of the more definitive roles as far as biopics go–it’s not that Saldana a talented actress, but it’s hard to imagine there isn’t another Black actress out there who couldn’t evoke a better Nina,” writes Hellobeautiful.com.

R&B diva Mary J Blige was one of the more qualified hopefuls who prepared for years for her chance at the part.

The film started shooting in Los Angeles last week. What do you think about a light skinned actress playing Nini Simone?

      I honestly think its a moot point. Hopefully in choosing Zoe they made their decision based on who could truly portray Nina overall, not just color or ability to sing.

      so Zoe’s considered light-skinned? :think:

      She’s more of a rich brown hue to me… :shrugs:

      Either way, if she can play the role what diff does it make?

      Larry Fishburn is lighter than Ike Turner and he played the SHYT out of that role… Denzel is darker than Malcolm X was too…

      Zoe is oh so fine, and white folks love her,… It’s about who is gonna fill seats!

      I think it’s horrible. For the character to be believable the actor needs to resemble them, such as how well Will Smith was able to protray Ali. Or if you can’t physically look like the, at least get their mannerisms down, like Jamine Foxx did with Ray Charles. Nina was proud of her dark skin at a time when the Brown Paper Bag test was still being administered at Howard and Hampton Universities.

      Either way, the movie will bomb. It’s not true. Nina was not in love with Clifton Henderson as he was homosexual. Her daughter said so.

      I don’t have a problem with her wearing an afro wig for the part because that is being true to the person she is portraying. I have a problem with that wig in particular because it looks like a curl wig instead of a natural fro wig. I would have to know who else tried out for the part and why they were not picked before I go judging her doing this role. There are specifics regarding contracts and all that jazz that could of gotten in the way of another actress getting the part.

      It really is not about tone..Mary was up for this role..Jill Scott expressed interest… they are doing that Hollywood thing again…its no longer a biopic about Nina Simone for those who are interested in her but a Hollywood numbers game..

      Michelle Williams played Marilyn Monroe and actually looked like her.

      ———————————————————
      The issue is that there are darker skinned women in Hollywood so why pull a LSLH woman and use darkening makeup on her? I think what people are upset about is that this is another Hollywood movie where the Black female role is not given to the darker skinned woman.
      Viola Davis could have pulled this off.

      I have to agree with commenters on other urban blogs that this reaks of Colorism.
      Nina Simone was Afrocentric during the time when you had to be a certain Black complexion to attend Hampton and Howard and during the time when Lena Horne was given more air time over Ella Fitzgerald because Ella was darker than her.
      She deserves an actress who looks like her and who can empthathize with what Nina went through.

      Hating on her? @Jenie come on..dont trivialize the issue with that…I get, I think, where you are going, but a big part of who Nina was, was how Black and African she looked…at a time when it wasnt kosher to look, or be PROUD to look that way.

      If she gets skin darkening like Forrest and others have done, sure, but these ppl arent just coming from a place of she aint right because she light..its a place of feeling like Nina’s whole everythang is being disrespected and underrepresented.

      If you gotta add pigment and a horrible kanekalon wig to attempt to look like Nina….you have failed at it. It shouldn’t take much.

      And Zoe is latina, not even African American like Nina was so that in itself must be a slap in the face to her family that’s living.

      She worked too hard to have herself played by someone who ain’t “her” if ya catch my drift.

Tina Turner was played by Angela Bassett and they look absolutely completely different. Zoe is still a black woman. I’m from North Jersey, i’m used to seeing black hispanics. Black women should show more outrage in their communities, not with this nonsense…..IT’S HOLLYWOOD…get over it….

      It’s funny you say that. I’ve read on other Afrocentric blogs that Zoe can’t empathize with Nina’s struggle because she is’nt “American Black” or African-American as Nina was…she’s Dominican.

      I however think Lauren Hill could have killed this.

      Because right now and histrically it is Black women who are being hurt the most by Colorsim in the Black community. Turn on TV and you see Beyonces and Rihannas who are considered the beautiful ones. Sadly LSLH is what is right now what is “hot”, hennce all these Black women walking around with Pocahontas weaves in their hair.
      I rememebr talking about this in class one day at Howard. Class that day was on FIYA! Darker skinned males in the Black community have always been considered more desirable than darker sinned women. “The Black the berry the sweeter the juice” never applied to Black females. You want to research further google “Colorism” and its sad effects on Black women today. It was perpatrated by Whites AND by Blacks during the times of slavery and beyond. It looks like Hollywood won’t let it go either.
      You know it’s a damn shame when Viola Davis takes a photo of herself in a magazine without a weave in her hair and people were shocked as if it were something new.

      Im only mildly “outraged” because from the beginning I knew it wouldnt be all good since they are basing it on a relationship with two ppl who arent here to say thats how it went, so they already off track in a fan’s mind. Its not on her career, but a personal relationship, then to top that off with a actress who is often deemed as one note, kinda like icing on a bitter cake. :shrug:

      My Indian coworker, uses the internet to “shop” for spouses for her kids. I Swear, she will not look at ANYBODY with dark skin of a wide nose then likes to brag that her son looks like a white boy. I swear he doesn’t look like he has a pinch of white in him. I have to constantly listen to her talk about how fair someone’s skin is or what their nose is shaped like or their hair type. I’m like all day long.

      The ONLY time they’ll allow their kids to marry a black dude with dark skin and African features is if he has $$$$. Other than that, he’s good for nothing.

      Same thing with East Asians as well :yes:

      The first step is to get out of denial…saying it doesnt exist and that ppl need to get over it is like not the way. Pretty much counterproductive to any healing.

      —————

      Agreed. The second step is to stop saying this is a “black thing.” EVERY race and culture has this issue and I just feel some type of way when black adults want to blame this race only.

      Well, I don’t know for sure that she doesn’t have any kids. But she was so fine there was no way her body had been ruined by spitting out some ninja’s niglet yet.

      Being light skin and long hair, I don’t like to assume what other black people should feel when it comes to race issues. I’ve had my share of discrimination from people of different races so, I can’t imagine how people who are darker than me may feel about the discrimination they may face in this day and age. It is definitely an issue that 1. can’t be ignored and 2. can’t be thought of as something everyone can respond to in the same way. I can only pray that people in general have the strength to acknowledge when they are being done wrong and to respond in a way that is healthy for them.

      I also agree that I don’t see the fuss in Zoe playing Nina. Zoe is still of African heritage, it just so happens that her slave ship stopped at a different port. If she were to stopped by cops in Mississippi tonight, she’d still be identified as a “ni–er.” She also is steadfast about the the fact that she is a BLACK Latina. I could see the fuss if they had chosen Jennifer Lopez or Sofia Vergara to play Nina dresed in blackface, but Zoe is very much a natural Black woman. And she’s not even light-skinned. I think its sad that so many Black women are against her playing this part with the reasoning that Zoe isn’t “Black enough” when she’s just as Black as everybody else.

      Ill be supporting Zoe because as a Black woman in Hollywood, she needs as much support as she can get.

      Choc…”build your daughter up and then they won’t be able to tear her down…”<— that is a part of the deep sigh. Not your comment but thinking that something as rich and storied as the African diaspora can be solved by teaching "self love"

      I know you are set in your ways but if you try to look at this from another view point…girls, black, white and in between are bombarded with images everyday about what is beautiful, what is not, etc.

      I dont care how much you try there will be those instances where your child just doesnt feel what you are saying, especially in their formative years where "friends/social culture" may have a little more influence then "parents".

      So while you, me and Beyonce will be sure to tell our peaches just how peachy they are, if they arent getting that message back, then our battle is that much harder. Not to mention the girls who never get told they are wonderful. :( Thats all.

      ALL RIGHT GIRLS HERE IT IS. SORRY IT IS THIS LATE BUT I HAD TO WORK IN BETWEEN SO…

      THE TITLE: NEVER ASKED HIS NAME..

      PART ONE:

      I noticed you as I walked into the mansion. It was filled with masqueraders dressed I their sexiest reds and blacks all with their eyes covered in elaborate masks. I wasn’t sure if the chick next to you was your woman or some random chick you were giving conversation to. When our eyes met a slight smile graced your masked face as you followed it with a quick sip from your cup. Your custom red and black William Fioravanti suit spoke well of the muscular build it enrobed. Your smoldering eyes cruised the length of my body which cause me to blush and change the direction of my stare as I passed you. “been thinkin’ bout you all day.. Look how you turn me on!” Usher began to sing as Touching You feat. Rick Ross began to play. Someone grabbed my hand and led me to the dance floor. As I began my dance with the masked man, my photographic memory replaced his face with yours. Imagining what it would be like to have your hands on me, I closed my eyes and began a sultry dance about the floor, rolling and rocking my hips, imagining my hands were yours as I moved to Ushers lyrics.. “Fukin You, Fukin You..” I opened my eyes to see you directly in front of me watching my every move. My desire stirred as you watched me dance for you. The heat of your stare was too much. I turned my back to you. Only a moment had passed when I felt the warmth of your body close. Your cologne softly caught my senses and I pressed back against you. A silent exchange between you and my former dance partner and I was all yours. “I’ve been day dreaming bout…” Usher continued as you gently pressed against me as we fell into sync and began a seductive rock. “Fukin you..fukin you..”

      NEVER KNEW HIS NAME: PART TWO:

      Your 6’3” stature towered me I reached up and caressed your neck as you wrapped your arms around my waist. I heard you inhale my perfume and release a low moan as you coveted my curves. I closed my eyes as I felt you blow my soft curls away from my neck and plant a firm kiss. I bit my bottom lip as my eyes rolled from the softness of your lips. Your name? My name? Who cares? All that mattered was us in the moment. I felt your warmth leave my as you grabbed my hands and led me off the dance floor. Through the crowd we eased, my face flush from desire and the shameful wetness between my legs. You quickly navigated me through the mansion to one of its dark empty master bedrooms. As I closed the door I felt one hand palm my pussy and another grab my breast as you pressed me against the wall. I felt your teeth nip my neck and your lips and tongue torture the same spot. I pressed my bottom against the hardness in your pants as you slid your hands down the front of my legging. “So wet.” Were the first words I ever heard you speak as you feathered my **** with your two middle fingers while you slid my leggings to my knees. I felt you lower to the ground and bite my bottom, kiss the top where the part begins and separate my cheeks with your tongue finding my wetness in the middle.

      NEVER KNEW HIS NAME PART THREE:

      My loud moan were thankfully hidden in the music as your lips created a seal around the my opening as you began sucking the sweetness into your mouth. My legs trembled in my stilettoes as your slipped your tongue inside me. I bent over to give you better access as you alternated tongue fuking me and sucking my clyt. My earth shook as I felt you repositioned sitting between my legs and began licking my clyt as you slid your fingers inside me. My orgasm was imminent as I heard you unbuckle your pants and guided me down onto your ****. I screamed as the thickness shattered my expectations. You were huge but you wouldn’t let me back out as you wrapped your arms around my waist and drove your monster repeatedly into to me. I screamed with each crash of our skin as the slapping created a rhythm with the beat of the loud music that surrounded up. I rode you with intensity as you grabbed my ass and pressed me down so hard I came apart screaming as I released my juices all over you. In one motion you rolled me onto my back and slammed into my pussy banging every inch of you inside. I clawed your expensive suit shirt trying in vein to hold on through this ride. You pressed your body against me and began grinding your monster inside me stirring my pussy like a pot with your ****. I scream my second orgasm as you pulled out and came on the carpet. Breathing heavy we slowly gained our composure. Standing up, you helped me up. As I made my way to the bathroom I heard him dressing. I looked back both of us still with our mask on. “It was nice meeting you.” I said. “Same here.” My masked lover said as he left the room.

      Choc…”build your daughter up and then they won’t be able to tear her down…”<— that is a part of the deep sigh. Not your comment but thinking that something as rich and storied as the African diaspora can be solved by teaching "self love"

      I know you are set in your ways but if you try to look at this from another view point…girls, black, white and in between are bombarded with images everyday about what is beautiful, what is not, etc.

      I dont care how much you try there will be those instances where your child just doesnt feel what you are saying, especially in their formative years where "friends/social culture" may have a little more influence then "parents".
      ________________________
      Maybe you dont fully understand how I grew up – but since you don't I think you've made plenty of assumptions about my comment! GOD said FIRST LOVE IS SELF LOVE and I will leave it at that but please don't be under any impression that I didn't know who I was didn't feel lost and didn't get hated on treated inappropriately or discriminated agaisnt…. I know my struggles and my journey and that's all I can do is share what I did in my life I can't pretend to have all the answers but what worked for me will have to work for my children until they find their own healthy coping mechanism
