Have you ever noticed. The way Tyra Banks. Talks. In. Short. Staccato. Sentences.?
Especially when she's. Trying to. Make. A. Point.
I can't watch her talk show, because it's laaaaaame. And the way she speaks. Really. Bugs. Me.
But occasionally I watch America's Next Top Model. Perhaps because she's not in any given episode all that much. And, you know, it's, like, "OhmyGod! Who's going to BE America's. Next. Top. Model?"
So anyhow, this week they're airing Season 7 here and the five remaining girls are in Barcelona. Tyra sits them down to have. A. Talk. She's been in the bidness fo' years, so you know she's full of sage advice for these young hopefulls. She tells them that the modelling industry is hard, so hard! It's probably one of "the toughest industries."
"If you're not a great actor, you can go to an acting coach and improve. If someone tells you you're sometimes singing off key, you can get voice lessons. But if a client says 'I just don't like her look,' what are you going to do? You're still YOU!"
Oh Tyra! How true! How very very very true! It is tough to be a model.
Orrrrr,...wait a minute! You could go to a gym. And for a massage. And then a plastic surgeon's office. Lipo, Botox, Lift, Fat-lips, Boob-job. Heal up at a spa. And then head to a beauty salon and have your colours done and a gorgeous haircut. And hire someone to do your makeup. And get a fan to blow your hair around luxuriously while a professional photographer snaps your pictures. Then they'll touch it up and airbrush the shit out of it.
But, yah. At the end of the day, you're still just you.
Poor little model!
