Racism? Serena Williams Wonders About Wimbledon Court Placing

Filed under: ZportzSerena WilliamsVenus WilliamsFitnessTennis

Venus Serena Court 2

Both Serena and Venus Williams are consistently placed on Court 2 during Wimbledon, despite between the two of them having won 9 of the last 11 singles championships.

So why wouldn't the ladies be featured on the more prominent court? Especially with how widely known they are?

"They like to put us on Court 2 — me and Venus — for whatever reason. I haven't figured it out yet. Maybe one day we'll figure it out…I don't really think about it. I don't make it a big issue. I think at some point, maybe I should."

Everyone else wondering why has been coming up with some interesting reasons — including both racism and sexism.

But the tournament's spokesperson denies those allegations:

Tournament spokesperson Johnny Perkins said the sisters' placement was "not deliberate," noting broadcast considerations and ticket sales as considerable factors for scheduling.

You'd think that 9 out of 11 would bring ticket sales, yeah?

Honestly, we're beginning to wonder why too. We're not going to be so hasty as to jump to the darkest of conclusions yet, but, it's becoming so frequent that it can't be a coincidence!

Until we find out, or until they're moved to Court 1, maybe they should just see it as a good luck charm having won so many times where they are! At least have a positive spin on it for now!

Katy Perry To Tie With Michael Jackson's Billboard Record!

katy-perry-to-tie-with-michael-jackson.jpg

Whoa!!

Katy Perry is about to do something that no other female singer has done before.

Michael Jackson is the only artist who has ever had five No.1 Billboard Hot 100 hits from one single album.

That could all change soon if Katy Perry's latest single Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) hits the number one spot (and, come on, you know it will). She will then have five number one hits from her Teenage Dream album - a first for any female in the chart's 52-year history.

That's a HUGE accomplishment! We're rooting for you, Katy! We know Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) will hit number one. You are unstoppable!

We don't know how we initially missed these, but hey! Better late than never!

In case you haven't already, check out these music videos that Ke$ha released a while back for two tracks from her debut album, Animal, the silly little ode to stalkers, Stephen, and the title track (above), which seem to have popped up on her YouTube page a few weeks ago!

Katy Perry Is Unstoppable! E.T. Is #1 On Bilboard Charts!

Filed under: Music MinuteKaty Perry

katy-pery-breaks-records-with-new-single.jpg

This is really something for her to celebrate!!!

This morning, the Billboard Hot 100 list was released and at the top spot sits Katy Perry's latest jam, E.T. This ranks as her fourth consecutive single to reach the #1 spot on the chart and has simultaneously broken two huge records.

Katy has now become the first artist in seven years to yield four #1 singles off of a single album and the first female in 20 YEARS to accomplish the same feat! (Usher had four singles go tops in 2004 off of Confessions and Mariah Carey was the last lady to make such a mark on the music world with her debut in 1991.)

This is just…OUTSTANDING! We're just so insanely proud! Such an amazing accomplishment!

Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!

Congrats!!!
