Tyra Banks Blazes PAPER Pages With Fierce Comeback Shoot / Spills On ‘Top Model’ Return

Published: Tuesday 28th Nov 2017 by Sam

Tyra Banks is back and in more ways than one.

The trailblazing supermodel bowed out from that role when setting sail on her quest to become a media maven.

And having accomplished that goal, she recently took a step away from the key driver of her empire – ‘America’s Next Top Model.’ During which time she became a mother, went to Harvard, and dabbled in other ventures.

Still, it seems home is where the heart is. So, not only is Tyra back as host of ‘Top Model’ (a role she relinquished to Rita Ora), she’s also in front of the lens again to promote it.

Case in point her fierce new shoot for PAPER.

Beyond her collection of edgy shots, she explains in her inside feature why she decided to return to ANTM.

Pics and quote after the jump…

Tyra On Her ‘Top Model Comeback’:

“I stepped away, but social media was calling my name in my sleep, screaming they were pissed off at me that I deserted [the show].

I needed to bring my butt back, so I did.

One thing I know is from studying business, they say your brand is not what you say it is, it’s what they say it is. I thought Top Model would be fine without me hosting, but the social media sphere let me know that was not the case.”

Your thoughts?

    Tyra Banks nailed that shoot. The supermodel is back! I want her back at ANTM. Leave that social media component alone. That seemed so contrived.

    This Bish just knew she had this shoot tucked away ready to slay us all! ? I was a little nervous after seeing her in the promo last week… She was looking a bit scary.
