Tyra Banks stopped by Good Morning America this morning to chat with Robin Roberts about her new book entitled Modelland, her life at Harvard Business School, and her hopes to leave a legacy of cultural domination. The segment was entertaining to say the least with her almost terrifying amount of energy, the Harry Potter-meets-America’s Next Top Model plot of her book and her gold wing-shaped eyewear that she explains as a “smize”.
"What's up with my eye? OK, so at Modelland, this fantasy world that I've created for my novel, if you find one of these, which I call a 'smize,' it increases your chances of getting into the most exclusive school in the entire world, the school that creates the most amazing supermodels called Intoxibellas. It increases your chances by 91 percent. [...] The models have magic in this school most definitely, so it's a totally fantasy adventure novel."
According to Tyra, a supermodel-turned-TV host-turned-author, she wants to create something similar to the works of Walt Disney but for empowering women. In order to accomplish all her goals, she has enrolled in Harvard Business School, doing the whole dorms and studying thing along with the rest of her classmates. The book debuts on September 13, but if you just can’t wait, you can pre-order it on Amazon.com
