Zoe Saldana has gotten a lot of negative attention for her portryal of legendary singer, Nina Simone for her ethnicity, but the Latina is shooting down her haters. “I’m black the way I know how to be. You have no idea who I am. I am black. I’m raising black men. Don’t you ever think you can look at me and address me with such disdain. I never saw her as unattractive. Nina looks like half my family!”

“But if you think the [prosthetic] nose I wore was unattractive, then maybe you need to ask yourself, What do you consider beautiful? Do you consider a thinner nose beautiful, so the wider you get, the more insulted you become?”

A rep from Nina’s estate took to Twitter to address the Allure mag quote.
