With about three months to go until Election Day, the presidential campaigns seem to get more and more twisted up with celebrity culture. Today, we get to add the loveable crazy-fierce Tyra Banks to the mess.
The talk-show host/model mentor poses as Michelle Obama in this September’s Harper’s Bazaar and offers up advice on how to be a good first lady, like, “know how to take a fierce picture but at the same time be able to eat fried chicken.”
See, Tyra really does know everything from smiling with your eyes to representing the country.
And the crazy don't stop there...
The best part of the photo spread is that mannequin Tyra is not the only faux-bama in the shoot, there’s also a fake Barack and fake offspring all looking glamorous in a fake White House because, as far as Bazaar is concerned, Obama's already won. Or maybe they just want to show how pretty the Obamas would be as the first family.
Either way, it’s a weird concept that doesn’t quite work. Also, we'd like to know where's the spread featuring Heidi Montag as Cindy McCain? If we're (un)lucky, Speidi will probably provide that one for us all on their own next week.
In the end, the whole feature just reinforces the notion that you can never, ever have enough crazy Tyra quotes (the article is a goldmine), so here's one more on what her Secret Service acronym would be if she were the real Michelle Obama: “KMFA: Kiss My Fat Ass.”
Yes, Tyra for president. And don't forget to check out an all new cycle of America's Next Top Model this September.
