Some suggestions for you :

Screw being a singer! I wanna be the voice of my generation with my talk show.

I created 'America's Next Top Model' one-hundred percent. I was in my kitchen making tea one morning, and I looked out the window, and the idea popped into my head. I wanted it to be 'American Idol' meets 'Ford Supermodel of the Year' meets 'The Real World.'

A while ago I said that, 'You know, I like a guy - he doesn't have to be all rich and famous - he can be normal.' And I remember I was walking in the mall, and this guy was like, 'Tyra, I'm normal. I live with my mama. I ain't got a car and I ain't got a job! I'm real normal.' And I'm like, 'That's not normal - that's a loser!'

When modeling agencies were saying that I was too big and gaining weight, my mom said, 'OK, we're going to discuss what they're saying over pizza, and we're going to plan the future of your career which doesn't involve you having to be skinny.'

I think of dystopian as 'Mad Max,' as 'Book of Eli,' as the world is ending.

Flaws are awesome - so, 'flawsome!' I love making up a word.

It's kind of embarrassing, but in my early 20s, I used to want to be a princess. But I didn't want to have to marry somebody in order to do it!

The president of Victoria's Secret promised me a lifetime supply of Victoria's Secret products, even after I decided to leave the company. But once I left, he only let me have it for a year. So I have a bone to pick.

I actually studied with The Groundlings.

I know some women are intimidated by makeup.

I don't think I'll always be on television.

I just think, as a model, it's taught me to be a master of deception and illusion.

I love Roald Dahl.

Sometimes you gotta leave when you're on top.
