Tennis superstar Serena Williams graces the cover of the June/July 2010 issue of Uptown Magazine. In the issue, Serena discusses last year’s profanity laced temper tantrum for which she had to pay a record-breaking fine. She also discusses her relationship with rapper Common, religion, and her new gig as a nail technician.
Serena Williams won her fourth Wimbledon women’s singles title by beating Russian 21st seed Vera Zvonareva 6-3, 6-2 in Saturday’s final. By now everyone and their momma should know that her and Common broke up. Read Serena’s interview with Harper’s Bazaar here
In the article Serena says, “I was 23 when I realized that I wasn’t Venus. She’s totally different. I’m super curvy. I have big boobs and this massive butt. She’s tall and she’s like a model and she fits everything. I was growing up, wanting to be her, wanting to look like her, and I was always fitting in her clothes, but then one day I couldn’t. But it’s fine. Now I’m obviously good, but it’s a weird thing. . . . To this day, I don’t love my arms. People want more fit arms, but my arms are too fit. But I’m not complaining. They pay my bills.”
Serena also talks about the breakup with boyfriend Common. “His schedule is actually worse than mine,” she told the magazine. “He didn’t want the responsibility. It’s really tough.”
