Serena Williams teaches us all how to twerk, lands cover of SELF Magazine’
The tennis queen shows off her latest moves and says she might have a baby in five years
When you’re Serena Williams, you just can’t miss. That’s why she slays as she serves up her new magazine cover venture and this step-by-step video dishing out instructions on how to properly and tastefully twerk.
Williams announced Tuesday via Instagram that she will grace SELF Magazine’s September issue.
The 35-year-old tennis superstar is shown on the cover dressed in a blue-and-white sports bra with bikini bottoms.
According to the cover story, Williams recognizes athletes who paved the way for her.
“I can’t say I am the pioneer because it was Althea Gibson, it was Zina Garrison, it was Arthur Ashe, it was so many people before me,” she said. “I appreciate being in a position where I was chosen to be a role model. Obviously, being black in tennis wasn’t easy, even in the ’90s.”
Williams said she has a five-year plan and it just may include a couple of kids.
“In five years, I’m on a boat or an island, sketching the latest collection,” she said. “Maybe there’s a baby, maybe a couple, we’ll see. I’m done traveling — I’m throwing away my passport. Yeah, I’m done with it.”
