"Every gay man has that one best female friend," said Editor in Chief Parker Ray. "Tyra is Jay's, and when we approached Jay about appearing in Instinct for the new season of 'America's Next Top Model,' how could we not include Tyra in his story? It's a great cover feature not only about the show, but about the unique relationship gay men have with straight women."

The hit reality show, which begins its second season in January, follows would-be models through a rigorous selection process. Along the way, tensions flare and drama is served up in heaping portions.

10th Jan, 2004 - More Info On 'Shake Ya Booty'
Tyra Banks is planning to unveil her musical talents to the world next month, with her debut single, Shake Ya Booty. The American supermodel and actress has, until now, kept her singing ambition intensely private, in a bid to avoid the stigma associated with attempting to jump from the catwalk into a pop career. "I didn't want the press and public to know, because I feel that when you're moving from one field to another, you have to show what you can do, not just talk about it," she told contactmusic.com. "I've been sneaking in and out of studios in New York, Atlantic City and Los Angeles, recording demos and working with top-of-the-line producers to be ready for this."

10th Jan, 2004 - Ad Creates Controversy
Page 72 of a recent Us Weekly looks more like something out of Playgirl.

A story about the second season of Top Model, a reality show on UPN hosted by Tyra Banks, is illustrated with a photo of a redhead in body paint accompanied by a blond male model on one knee. His raised leg is supposed to conceal his nether regions, but something is dangling into view, according to the New York Post.

Us editors are said to be furious with UPN, which provided the photo. A network rep says, "It's been busy around here, and apparently someone took their eye off the . . . " (You can guess the rest.)

We know our audience wouldn't be tempted to sneak a peek. We're only telling so you won't accidentally see it.

She says, "I always really wanted children. I've never been attached to the whole marriage idea but then I realised I probably care about it a little bit more than the average person.

"I don't wanna go through labour without a husband. I need someone to hold my hand - somebody to cuss out and slap."
