45 & Fierce:Tyra Banks On 2019 SI Cover




By G. Brown

If you ever stop and wonder sometimes, ‘whatever happened to Tyra Banks?’ then you obviously didn’t catch yesterday’s trending Twitter topics.

 Like a blast from yesterday, the “Former Top Model” show creator and host dusted off her runway and took a stroll down memory lane.  Banks came out of retirement for the not so minor job of landing on the cover of 2019’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. Not impressed? Hold my beer.


More than 20 years after making history as the first Black woman to grace the cover of SI back in 1997, Banks brought her smizing eyes and total fierceness back sporting an oh! so itty bitty yellow string bikini.

Banks says, “My first one was 23 years ago, how crazy is that?  Very crazy when you try to wrap your head around the fact that Tyra is 45 YEARS OLD!  

An excited Banks posted the spread on Twitter…

And fans were definitely here for it… 

This is actually the third time Tyra has slayed on an SI Swimsuit cover.  And given the buzz she’s creating with this fierceness, we can probably Bank on her coming out of retirement to do another one in the future.

    Hey! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile
    friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from
    my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that
    might be able to correct this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Many thanks!

    The conspiracy theorist in me is nervous. John Singleton is responsible for her success, but Tyra made no statements regarding his tragic death. Now we see the 45 year old black woman on the cover of one of the most popular magazines in the world? Something is weird about this situation, then again, people don’t call hollywood hollyweird for nothing.

    Who says you gotta be of a certain(younger) age to look or dress as good (as Tyra)?
    In my honest opinion, age is JUST a number!
