Yesterday Kristian likened Tyra Banks to Rihanna due to her business acumen and dedication to staying On Brand with every move she makes. And Tyra makes a lot of moves (or, as is also the case, “micro-movements” which is a modeling technique Tyra taught me on ANTM that I use to this day). And the comparisons don’t end there. Tyra (or BanX as she’s rechristened herself. I’ll get into that later, one Big Idea at a time) and Rihanna also both seem to possess and an uncanny ability to stay three stomps ahead of competition when it comes to The Next Big Thing. In Rihanna’s case, she’s got the cosmetics and fashion industries watching her for clues about what the latest trends will be. And Tyra, well she’s got Big Ice Cream positively shook! Tyra would add one more similarity to that list. She thinks she and Rihanna look like they were separated at birth!
Tyra Banks is truly a woman of many talents. She’s a bikini model, a mega-producer of everything you can think of, and she tried to resuscitate Lindsay Lohan‘s dead career. She’s doing it all. And next on her list of things to accomplish is an ice cream brand called Smize Cream.
There used to be a time when the word “model” actually meant something. Now whenever I hear someone claim they’re a model I think to myself “Sure you are. On Instagram“. Tyra Banks was amongst the last of real supermodels who’d cut bitches down with their smizing instead of putting them to sleep. Tyra is back to save the modeling industry from the Jenners and the Hadids by gracing one of the covers of SI: Swimsuit Edition.
Tyra Banks is moving on up, or something. Ever since the model/mogul/actress/living doll/smizer announced she was leaving America’s Got Talent as its host, we have been waiting with breath that is baited, wondering what this tall bag of crazy would deliver us next. Well we can stop guessing, because Women’s Wear Daily is reporting that Tyra’s next challenge is: Modelland, the theme park. Continue reading
It’s a tale as old as time. A humble television personality hits the big time and suddenly all of her previous work is below her and she needs to focus her time and energy into a big CAREER. Well, pour one out for all the fans of Tyra Banks’ wide-eyed antics on America’s Got Talent because homegirl just handed her bosses a letter reading: “I quit this bitch.”
Well, I for one, am thankful that somebody is out here letting Tyra Banks do her damn thing. Tyra’s an affable, good natured clown, and we could all use a little more of that in #thesetryingtimes. As you know, somebody gave Tyra upwards of $5,000 and an after-closing shopping spree at TopShop to make a sequel to Life-Size which co-starred Lindsay Lohan and originally aired on the Disney Channel back in 2000. As promised, for Life-Size 2: Smize Queen, Tyra’s recorded a new version of the song “Be A Star” and don’t you dare say it’s anything less than a masterpiece. Yes, this is the hill I’ve chosen to die on. #Justice4Tyra.
