Stopping by for a media appearance, Tyra Banks visited "Good Morning America" in New York City today (July 21).
The 37-year-old supermodel took to the early show to promote her debut novel "Modelland," which is the first of a three-part series.
The book, which unravels in a fantasy land, centers around a super-exclusive school that turns out supermodels called "Intoxibellas" - specifically focusing most of the text on four girls who made their way into the prestigious establishment despite their unconventional looks.
Tyra also dished about the forthcoming 17th season of "America's Next Top Model," detailing all the drama that it has in store for viewers, "I have girls from cycle one until now - the fan favorites. I am editing the show right now and it is crazy. They are all these Type A personalities because you are getting the best of the best and they are effervescent and they pop," she told host Robin Roberts.
Banks then hinted to the new challenges this crop of potential runway women will have to endure, telling, "I have them singing songs, doing music videos, creating perfumes... You can't just be a model anymore."
