Serena Williams dishes on what it was like to work with Beyoncé
Yahoo News - 3 months
2016 was the year of Serena Williams. The great athlete and amateur dancer stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to spill on the remarkable past 11 months she's experienced.  While there, she detailed what it was like to dance with Beyoncé on stage. "All I could think was, 'Serena don't miss your note,'" she exclaimed, retelling the experience to DeGeneres before launching into explaining a more somber subject of a new resource center in honor of her late sister, Yetunde Price, who was killed because of gun violence. DeGeneres also got the tennis star to choose between Chance the Rapper, Idris Elba and Justin Bieber as potential suitors—a feat that seemed almost as impossible as 22 Grand Slam singles titles, but then again this is Williams we're talking about.  Stephen Colbert gives the Apple Book the spoof it deserves Little boy loses his sh*t over a Transformers toy Jimmy Fallon is not over his bad date with Nicole Kidman Watch this Tesla escape a rear end collision thanks to its ridic ...

Tennis-Tennis-Serena worries for nephews after U.S. shootings
Yahoo News - 8 months
By Martyn Herman LONDON, July 9 (Reuters) - Wimbledon champion Serena Williams said on Saturday she was concerned about the safety of her nephews in the United States after two black men were shot dead by police and five law enforcement officers were killed in an assault in Dallas. The 34-year-old, whose elder half-sister Yetunde Price died in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles in 2003, was asked about the violence back home shortly after winning her seventh Wimbledon singles crown and 22nd grand slam singles title. The shooting of two men in Louisiana and Tennessee this week led to a protest march in Dallas where a lone gunman opened fire killing five police and injuring seven.

    Price came into the public eye when she was the victim of murder by shooting on September 14, 2003, in Compton, in Los Angeles County, California, known for its history of gang violence.
    More Details Hide Details She was shot in the head while riding in an SUV driven by her boyfriend (whom police reported was the intended victim) and died at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center. Compton rapper Game's song "Dreams" is dedicated to her memory, as it states at the end of the track. Southside Crips gang member Robert Edward Maxfield, 25, pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter on March 22, 2006, the day before his third trial for the killing was scheduled to start. The first two trials ended in a mistrial after jurors were unable to reach a verdict. Prosecutors alleged during trial that Maxfield, surrounded by fellow gang members at a crack house, seized a firearm and took aim at the SUV when it approached. On April 6, 2006, Judge Steven Suzukawa sentenced Maxfield to 15 years in prison.
