In an attempt to inform the minds of people whose brains aren’t fully developed on who she is, Tyra Banks uses some of the characters from Sesame Street to reach an audience of those who can only say Mama, Dada, Hi, and Gaga. It really is important that everyone who is able to breathe can fully know and understand all that is Tyra.
Now I haven’t seen this episode of the Tyra Banks Show, but I’m pretty certain it went a little something like this:
Elmo: “Elmo loves hair! Can Elmo see your hai….
Tyra: “Showing my real hair is the most important thing that I can do. When I was shooting the cover of Sports Illustrated as the first African American cover model, my hair was real and natural. Is your hair real, Elmo? Because mine is and I want all little muppet girls out there to know that real hair is beautiful and you are beautiful and I am beautiful. I’m the most beautiful though.” You totally know that even Tickle Me Elmo is rolling over in his grave!
Cookie Monster: “Mmmm Cookie Monster likes cookies. Cookie Monster want to eat all the cookies. Cookie Monster want to give Tyra a cook…
Tyra: “I created America’s Next Top Model in my mind when I was walking the runway during the Victoria Secret fashion show and when I was backstage doing my own makeup I was told I could not eat any cookies because I had to be a size zero. And you know what I did? I ate the cookies and then I had a big old glass of milk. Then I walked the runway with my head held high and halfway down the longest runway that anyone has ever walked and will ever walk, I already had the first season of America’s Next Top Model mapped out in my head and by the time I got to the end of the runway I had the first 5 seasons of my talk show mapped out in my head. And on my way back 3 people handed me Emmy Awards for the shows I created in my mind. I’m telling you this because this comes from a place of “Momma” and I will sacrifice myself for you and your cookies. Ok thanks for coming on the show.”
