In case your friends posting all over Instagram and Facebook this weekend about how Beyoncé changed their lives didn’t give you a hint, Queen B turned 36 yesterday. She managed to snatch the Labor Day focus off BBQ and summertime sadness, and onto herself for the highest holiday in the Beyhive’s calendar.
But Bey’s day wasn’t celebrated how us normal folks might do. We have happy hour margaritas and inevitable tears about accomplishing jack shit. Beyoncé has Michelle Obama dressing up in a Beyonce costume for an artistic photo shoot. Continue reading
Every tiny little baby with the tennis gene just got very nervous and started thinking of a new sport to get into, because the future tennis champion of the universe (we’ll be hitting balls on Mars by then, right?) has been born.
Former Wimbledon champ (and doping suspendee) Maria Sharapova’s memoirs come out in September. People (by way of Metro UK) got a hold of an excerpt in which Maria addresses her long-running professional feud with tennis superbeing Serena Williams. Maria says that beating Serena at Wimbledon in 2004 resulted in the tennis legend referring to her as a “little bitch.” Maria got off lucky. She could have shared the same fate as one of Serena’s racquets! Continue reading
Someone better go check and see if Gloria Steinem is still standing. Serena Williams is having a baby with fiancé/Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. Rather than wait and do one of those “Ask Me Anything” sessions on her piece’s website, she blabbed to an Irish magazine about how she doesn’t like watching birthing videos. She also said pregnancy takes her up a notch in the woman caste. Continue reading
GOAT Serena Williams has never been in it for the money. In an interview on the sports finance video series Kneading Dough, she said, “I’ve actually never played for money — I just thought you would go out there and hold a trophy.” If she’s only in it for the trophies, then check and check! She has held more trophies than I have held dicks in my mouth (this is admittedly a modest number so maybe not the best analogy). But what about those actual checks? In the same interview, Serena tells a cute story about the time she tried to deposit her first ever million dollar check.
Serena Williams is famous and knocked up, and she would totally lose her status as a celebrity if she didn’t wear a hand bra and proudly stick out her pregnancy belly button in a photo shoot. So Serena and Annie Leibovitz worked together to do a 2017 reboot of Demi Moore’s naked and knocked up Vanity Fair cover (which was also shot by Annie) from 1991. It’s like as soon as a famous chick finds out a fetus is growing in her body, her publicist hands her Annie Leibovitz’s business card and a tutorial on how to bust out the perfect hand bra pose. I’m still waiting for a famous chick’s man to do a naked photo shoot while clutching his sympathy weight bump.
Inside Vanity Fair, Serena talks to Buzz Bissinger about how she met and fell in love with that Reddit dude and how she couldn’t believe she was pregnant and still can’t really believe it.
