Why is She famous

People still tend to think of Tyra Banks as “just a model,” but with her own hit TV show, America’s Next Top Model, and a daytime talk show, The Tyra Banks Show, she’s shown the world that she’s more than just a smokin’ face and hot walk.

“Black women don’t have the same body image problems as white women. They are proud of their bodies. Black men love big butts.” – also say Tyra.

There’s no denying it: Tyra has pure animal magnetism written all over her. She’s voluptuous and curvy in all the right spots, and do we love that. Her confidence on and off the runway lends her an I-could-destroy-you aura that could translate nicely to the bedroom.  We have to keep dreaming, right?

Tyra Banks acts as an impressive example for aspiring models and actresses everywhere, and she wears her supermodel title with pride. Spreading her model know-how in her reality TV show America’s Next Top Model and heading her own company as CEO of TYInc., producing films and acting… Tyra is a woman of many talents. Her face is one that is instantly recognizable across the globe, even when she’s not sporting those luscious Victoria’s Secret angel wings.

Tyra Banks Biography

Tyra was born in Los Angeles on December 4th, 1973, into a loving and supportive family. Despite the divorce of her parents when she was only 6 years old, and the torments of her older brother Devin, Tyra’s youth was happy and trouble-free.Though it might be hard to believe, Tyra was tall, skinny and awkward as an adolescent. She was constantly teased by her brother and her classmates, and often ran home crying to her mother for comfort. But late into her high school years everything changed. Tyra filled out her skinny frame, began to work out and finally decided to become a model. She pursued that goal with the determination that now marks all of her activities.

After being turned down by four modeling agencies because they didn’t think she was photogenic, Tyra finally signed with Elite Model Management at age 17. She had her foot in the door and she was ready to push right on through. Instead of beginning her freshman year at Loyola Marymount College, Tyra moved to Paris for a year and modeled for many of the big names in fashion, including Ralph Lauren and Chanel. She then moved back to the States and continued modeling, rocketing her way up through the ranks.

Tyra made People Magazine’s “100 Most Beautiful” list not once, but twice, and even wrote a revealing book about her life, Tyra’s Beauty Inside & Out. She also had a few high-profile relationships, first with John Singleton and then with pop singer Seal. Tyra is rumored to have gone out with Kobe Bryant, Rick Fox, Michael JordanTiger Woods and… Mark Messier? Strangely enough, yes.

In interviews, Tyra often says that she has a preference for normal guys, albeit tall ones — she measures 5’11”. Tyra has also expressed her desire to find Mr. Right, get married and have kids one day.

Unlike most other models, Tyra claims that doesn’t watch what she eats; she has gone on record stating that she eats barbecued ribs, fried chicken wings, ice cream, and even fast-food.

So how does Tyra stay in shape? She plays lots of sports, particularly basketball and tennis, and makes sure she always has fun while exercising.
