Meshell Ndegeocello sat down with BET’s Clay Cane to discuss her critically acclaimed new Nina Simone biopic.
During the interview, Cane asked the singer and bassist what she thought about Zoe Saldana playing Simone.
“Give an artist a chance before you critique it,” said Â Ndegeocello in diplomatic fashion.
Ndegeocello also chimed in on her thoughts on Frank Ocean (she loves his music) and some of the black community’s negative reaction to President Obama’s support of gayÂ marriage.
