Tyra Banks who was formerly a model and is now a talk show host as well as head of a reality show titled "America's Next Top Model," has been called fat by her critics. Tyra is finally standing up for herself and admits that she has gained 30 pounds and she still looks beautiful. Tyra now weighs approximately 161 pounds and that is still average for a woman of her height. It is good to see that Tyra doesn't take what the critics say to heart. So many young hollywood celebs would read that they're fat in a magazine and then lose tons and tons of pounds. Tyra was hurt by the remarks of her critics but did not let it go to her head, which is a lesson that many young girls should try and copy.

A lot of gossip magazines always have a section about dieting and losing weight. I agree that everyone should stay in shape by exercising and eating healthy. The way magazines portray these diets aren't necessarily about being healthy though. It seems they just focus on how you look on the outside. It just seems that magazines sometimes make average people feel like they need to lose more and more weight and be super skinny. Notice on the picture, the biggest words on the cover of the magazine are "HALF MY SIZE!" It also shows a before and after picture where they choose a bad picture for the "before" picture and a model picture for the "after" picture.

This video is a great video for young girls to watch. It starts with an average looking woman with no make up. It then shows her go through a transformation as tons of people apply make up to her face and fix her hair. After that is all said and done, a person fixes her photograph to look perfect. It is a good video to watch and it finally shows us that celebrities don't wake up looking as perfect as it may seem. It shows that they have a lot of people to help them look the way they do. This is actually the first instance I have found that the media is making a positive influence on woman. I think every girl should watch this.

Young children are very easy to influence. When they see adults acting a certain way or saying certain words, they assume it's okay for them to do also.
