Zoe Saldana Stars as Nina Simone In ‘Nina’ (Trailer)

zoe saldana nina simone
Nina Simone’s life story was brought to Netflix in the widely acclaimed documentary What Happened, Miss Simone? last year, and in 2016, her legacy is coming to the big screen in the upcoming biopic, Nina. With Zoe Saldana playing the iconic jazz artist and civil rights activist, the movie revolves around Nina’s later years living in exile in France and her relationship with her former nurse-turned-manager Clifton Henderson.
However, the project hasn’t been as well received as Netflix’s What Happened, Miss Simone? in these early stages; the casting of Saldana has been hotly contested due to her light complexion (Mary J. Blige was previously cast in the lead role before dropping out), while Simone’s daughter took exception to the script, which seems to give Henderson much of the credit for her mother’s later career.
Directed by Liz Garbus and also starring David Oyelowo, Mike Epps and Ella Thomas, Ninahits theaters on April 22. Check out the first trailer below.

New Music: Lupe Fiasco “Bone”

lupe fiasco bone
If all goes to plan, Lupe Fiasco will be sailing off into the sunset by the end of 2016 after releasing his final three albumsDrogasSkulls and Roy. Today we’re hearing what may or may not be the first piece of his retirement plan with “Bone,” a remix of SZA’s “Babylon.” The bouncy, woozy instrumental already sounds like it belongs in Lupe’s catalog (somewhere between Food & Liquor II and Tetsuo & Youth) and the Chicago MC uses it as a platform to wax poetic about “the new generation of young sluts.”

The Oscars put together a brilliant skit.
Just when we thought that Chris Rock’s opening monologueat the 2016 Academy Awards was going to be the best part of the night, the host re-shot Oscar nominated films using black actors. “If you’re a black actor, just getting an opportunity to be in a movie can be a struggle,” Rock said before showing the clip which included references to JoyThe Martian and even The Revenant.
