No shade here!
The Guardians of the Galaxy star has been getting major heat for darkening her skin and donning a nose prosthetic while portraying the late singer in the upcoming biopic, even from the estate of Nina's verified Twitter account.
But not everyone is up in arms over Saldana's altered look — in fact, Queen Latifah and Paula Patton are coming to the actress' defense!
At the premiere of The Perfect Match on Monday, Latifah said she was "looking forward to" the film after being asked what she thought about the controversy, saying:

EXCLUSIVE! Naughty By Nature Announce Kickstarter Campaign To Fund Their 25th Anniversary Album! Get The Deets & Watch Their New Music Video!
They're still down with O.P.P. — after some crowd funding, of course!
Naughty By Nature are celebrating their 25th Anniversary with a brand new album — and they want fans to get in on the ground floor with a Kickstarter campaign!
Let the legendary Treach explain exactly why taking it directly to fans was an important move for the '90s hip-hop group:
"We're in the hip-hop genre where the majority of the veteran artists don't get support from record labels. So you don't hear music from many legends in the game. Our fans worldwide kept letting us know that they miss our era of music. We launched this Kickstarter so there would be a platform to grant them their wish of hearing new Naughty By Nature songs and seeing new Naughty By Nature videos."

Seriously, it was one of Ricky's better jokes of the night!
Funny moments aside, L.G. was super emotional as she accepted her Best Actress award for her celebrated work in American Horror Story: Hotel. According to the actress, it was the "best moment" of her life!
Considering the blonde revealed she always wanted to be an actress first, it's likely AHS won't be her last TV role.

Not only was it easy on the eyes, it also looked so soft and comfy! How often can you say that about a formal red carpet gown, right?
Honorable mention to the silver beading along her shoulders that perfectly complement the blue hue of the dress.
She's a queen, all right!
