Tyra Banks

Updated on October 13, 2009

The Woman...

“That's fierce.”

Those two words are enough for most to identify the woman who has become probably the most acessible supermodel of our time. Tyra. Tyra Banks. The woman who searches tirelessly each year for America's Next Top Model, handpicking girls with even more care than an illicit brothel owner. So sucessful has she been at wedding the really super ultra pretty from the merely super ultra pretty that 'they' gave her her own talks show, known simply as 'Tyra'.

The Talkshow...

Its been her talkshow that has really brought out the totally freakin mental in Tyra Banks, from hysterical breakdowns over bejewelled vaseline containers, to stripping her audience, she's made the term crazy sexy cool all her own. Is Tyra actually mental? Or is she orchestrating a carefully planned satire on the beauty and fashion industry? You be the judge.

The Breasts...

What about her breasts? Rumors have circulated wildly throughout the world over the years regarding these two lovely mammaries. Are they fake? Are they real? Has she had plastic surgery? What's the deal? I think the floppy boob part of the video below should convince us all that they are, in fact real, but just in case you don't believe moving pictures, here are some quotes from the mouth of the horse herself:

“By no means am I against plastic surgery, by no means am I saying that breast implants are a bad thing, but it's just not a choice that I made ... it's something that a lot of people think I have and that is so frustrating to me.”

“I am totally against plastic surgery. A lot of people think I have breast implants because I have the biggest boobs in the business. But I was a 34C when I was 17...They stay up when I wear a push-up bra. But if people could see me when I come home and take off my bra, how could they think these are fake?”

“Black women have always been these vixens, these animalistic erotic women. Why can't we just be the sexy American girl next door?”

Oops, okay, so the last one had nothing to do with breasts, I just snuck it in there because it had the phrase “animalistic erotic women” in there, and I think we can all learn a lot from that.

Finally, I'd like to end this piece with a quote from Tyra on the importance of interacting with the world at large. If this doesn't put the 'shallow model' stereotype to bed once and for all, then I just don't know what will.

“I haven't seen the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Louvre. I haven't seen anything. I don't really care.”
