Tyra Banks is confusing the heck out of fans after a video of her interviewing Megan Thee Stallion has gone viral. The retired model sat down with one of the three diverse models featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit this month. She was interviewing the rapper for a video to accompany the magazine cover. The two dished about everything from career to personal life moments. However, it wasn’t the intimate conversation that caught the attention of the fans it was the fact that Banks was wearing a full-on dress in the pool.
It Was Cute Though
The retired model stunned as usual in a glittery, colourful dress but it was odd that Megan was dressed for the occasion in a cute two-tone color block swimsuit and Banks was in a dress. Fans could not get enough of the way that Banks sleeves slapped the water when she talked with excitement about some of the “firsts” that the women have accomplished. Banks was the first black women to be on the cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and now, Megan is the first rapper to do the same. The other women who graced the cover have had a few firsts of their own as well. Noami Osaka is making strides speaking about mental health and specifically bowing out of career-making games like The French Open and Wimbledon. Leyna Bloom is the first transgendered model to have her own cover as well.
The Video Got A Few Laughs
The video couldn’t help but make fans holler in laughter and compare some of the ridiculous aspects of it to their own favorite moments. “It’s giving me very Amanda Jacuzzi,” wrote one follower referencing The Amanda Show that starred Amanda Bynes on Nickelodeon. “Tyra in a hot tub with her clothes on. Meg in a bathing suit with wet hair but no wet face. I have a lot of questions,” commented another fan. The jokes didn’t stop there many, an overwhelming amount of fans wanted to know how comfortable or “uncomfortable” Banks was wearing whatever that is she has on in the hot tub. Some likened it to a “cashmere sweater”, a “frock”, and even suggested she must be “possessed by something” to be wearing a “whole fit” in the water.
It Also Hit Some Serious Issues
On a more serious note, the women connected on a higher level being two firsts in a world designed to hold them down. Banks touched on her struggles in the industry and Megan opened up about her late mother and how inspiring she is. “My mom was a rapper. She didn’t know I wanted to be a rapper, but I would literally watch her in the studio all day,” the rapper shared with Banks. “I’m like, ‘This lady is everything.’ I didn’t want to tell her that I could rap until I was eighteen. I wanted to be perfect to her,” she added.
Tyra’s Being Tyra
While the women poured their hearts out, fans appreciated the vulnerability that they displayed and took the opportunity to turn the dress in a pool hate debacle around. “The fact that it’s Tyra in this pool wearing a dress while conducting an interview with Megan just makes sense”. Clearly, the fan is chalking it up to Banks just staying true to who she is. another fan simply reminded the haters it is “hot girls in a hot tub during a hot girl summer.” Period.
