Tyra Banks Writing Young Adult Novel Where Models Can Do Magic, Or Something

Remember how Tyra Banks hinted that the reason she was ending her talk show was because she wanted to try out other forms of media and everyone assumed she meant movies? Well, she may have meant that, but she also is interested in writing. That’s right, TyTy is releasing her first book and the subject matter is something familiar to her — and us. Modelland is a young adult fantasy novel that is described as Harry Potter meets “America’s Next Top Model.” Tyra is a wizard for figuring out that such a ridonculous idea is even possible!Tyra explains in the press release about Modelland:

“My novel … takes you to a fantastical place you’ve never seen, or heard about, or read about before … Where dreams come true and life can change in the blink of a smoky eye. … Modelland has always been a part of my mind and my heart. I’m excited that you’ll be able to read about this magical world that’s been living in my dreams for so many years.”

Obviously, this doesn’t reveal even the slightest bit of what the book is about, but I’m guessing it’s about a magical place where models have magical powers, like mind control smeyesing. They’re forced to battle enemies like the Cellulite Monster and his evil band of carbohydrate trolls, while still looking fierce in photoshoots. Yeah, that sounds right. [People]
