The trailer for the upcoming biopic Nina is finally here, but not everyone is loving Zoe Saldana's portrayal of cultural icon Nina Simone.

And after the trailer featured Saldana with dark makeup and a nose prosthetic — people were NOT happy!

Obviously, plenty of actors have changed up their appearances to play characters in films — but do YOU think they went too far with Saldana's makeup?

Weird Al Makes A Not-So-Weird Trip To The Grocery Store With His Daughter!

weird al and daughter nin go grocery shopping in hollywood

Nothing weird to see here!!

When he's not busy making hilarious song parodies for our ears, Weird Al is just your average, ordinary dad!

The big guy recently spent his day off with his daughter Nina, as they ran errands around town, and apparently their food is running low as they hit up a grocery store in Hollywood!

Aside from his silly floral print shirt, the trip was disappointingly not weird at all. There were no costumes, no accordion, nothing!

Seriously, for a guy named Weird Al, this is surprisingly normal!!
