Serena Williams admits she didn’t understand ‘Netflix and chill’ & doles out dating advice in Harper’s Bazaar
Back in Serena Williams’ day, “Netflix and chill” meant something a little more innocent. The 34-year-old tennis pro admitted in a Harper’s Bazaar advice column that she’d originally interpreted the silly millennial meme — a euphemism for hitting the sheets — in its literal sense.
“I’ve always thought that ‘Netflix and chill’ really meant watching Netflix and chilling. Am I naive?” asked a reader dubbed “Age of Innocence.”
“I have to tell you, I thought the same exact thing . . . I guess you and I are just old-fashioned — if you can call Netflix old-fashioned!”
Williams urged “Doubtful Debbie” to identify the roots of her self-doubt and “be confident of your inner strength and beauty, and that will be reflected on the outside.”
And February 14, she said, is just like any other day. “I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day, but I think you should try to make every day special,” Williams told “Confused Cupid.”
She also instructed “Shopping for a Cause,” a reader frustrated with his or her boyfriend’s poor sartorial sense, to show him fashion inspiration from Pinterest and magazines — but also encourage him to express himself. “I like a man who has a unique style,” she said. “I’d hate for him to fit into a mold or to blend in with the other guys.”
