In a recent interview with ES Magazine model Tyson Beckford really had a lot to say about himself and his girlfriend fellow model Shanina Shaik….
When I found her (Shanina Shaik) she was a regular girl. I helped place her with the right people, get her teeth cleaned, her body toned up. Everything changed and now everyone wants a piece of her. I hear people say, ‘You can do better than Tyson.’ I’m like, ‘Really? Really?! I created her!’
As a supermodel I go with the other supers round the world: Dubai one day, Paris the next. There’s partying. I’ll wake up in a hotel room and there are people all over the floor and I’m like, “Is this really happening?” One time in Miami I woke up in the bathtub. I play second fiddle to [female supermodels], but that’s fine. Linda’s great, and Elle, Naomi — though I’ve seen her dark side. They all like to have fun.
I’d always wanted to act, and that gave me a chance to show the world I wasn’t just a pretty model but that I could portray a character without speaking (referring to when he appeared in Toni Braxton’s ‘Unbreak My Heart’ video). Inside, I was always acting. An actor playing the role of a male supermodel.’ And his cameo in Zoolander? ‘I was playing myself, which is one of the hardest things you can do.’
This man deserves one bitch lick across his dumb face. If Shanina has any sense she will leave his backside.
Some of you might read this and think that the man had his tongue firmly in his cheek during this interview. That he was joking. But this fool was being deadly serious.
From what I have read and heard in the past Mr Beckford isn’t a very nice man and his rudeness has left many fans (including a friend of mine) stunned and feeling humiliated.
I never understood what all the fuss was when it came to Tyson. I have never found him that appealing.
