Good girl gone cynical

I want everyone to reblog this. I know no one will, because this isn’t a picture of a skinny girl or a deep meaningful quote. This is deeper than everything, how can someone ignore what’s happening in Gaza at the moment. This is one example of many innocent lives being threatened for no reason. This breaks my heart.

My heart hurts.
Nina Simone's Daughter: 'My Mother Could Be A Monster'

he forthcoming biopic of the late singer’s life starring Zoe Saldana has been put on pause due to its own drama. Writer and director Cynthia Mort has been locked out by a legal dispute with the producers. This makes Lisa smile. She said:

"They did not ask me or the Nina Simone estate to participate in the film at all. It is based on a lie because it is based on the life of my mother’s assistant, Clifton Henderson. Clifton was gay so he could not have had an affair with my mother, which is what the film implies. And my mother was raised at a time when she was told her nose was too wide, her skin was too dark…She was rejected by the U.S. She loved classical music and wanted to become the first black classical pianist but her dreams turned to dust because of the colour of her skin. Zoe Saldana portraying her is a bad joke because there are more gifted actresses who are more in keeping with my mother’s appearance.

I know how my mother would feel about Zoe, so they are making a mockery of her experiences to construct their own truth. The goal seems to be to bleed me dry of everything my mother stood for, of everything she sacrificed. She had many experiences in her life that left her feeling sad and angry. They approached the estate for permission to use some of the songs but as administrator I refused. I had the biggest laugh when I heard that Cynthia Mort had been pushed out of the film. You could call it karma. There is most certainly a divine order at work.”

If Nina Simone’s own daughter has objects then you know the film is a piece of trash

My heart breaks for both Mother and Daughter.

Bruuuuuuuuh

See, this is why I don’t need any little girls honestly. I refuse to comb through this.

Just saying how I don’t want girls because dealing with my hair is hard enough….
Loved this part
