Tyra Banks is one of the hardest working women around. She has been a supermodel since she was a teenager but has also ventured into other avenues such as music, acting, and hosting America’s Next Top Model. While she is retired from the supermodel world she is still going full speed with her other adventures. In a recent interview she said that she does not plan on slowing down any time soon and does not want children any time in the near future.
Tyra is very private about her life and has always said that she can’t be bothered to answer rumors about herself. So many come up that it seems like a waste of time for her to trying and correct them. She says that she will talk about a lot of different topics, all the way up to menstrual cycles, but she doesn’t feel that talking about her day to day life is useful for anyone other than gossip mongers. She wants women to be comfortable talking about more uncomfortable subjects such as s*x and body issues.
Now Tyra has joined Special K in the hopes that she can raise awareness about self-image and try to show women that it is okay to think more positively about their bodies no matter how they look. In 2007 some very unflattering paparazzi shots were put onto the covers of magazines and Tyra suffered the backlash of people calling her fat and ugly. She said that people had called her that before and it was nothing new, but the part that was different this time was that they put her on the cover, on display for all to see whether they read the magazine or not. She felt as though anyone who was trashing her was trashing every woman that didn’t have a perfect body and so she felt that it was time to speak out against it.
