The Pretty People Are Angry...Scary

The very "talented" (hot) male model Tyson Beckford has this to say about celebrities stealing the magazine covers from their rightful owners, the vapid model.

NEW YORK (AP) -- He's crossed over from modeling to acting, but Tyson Beckford says he wishes celebrities wouldn't jump into the business that made him famous.
Beckford, host of Bravo's "Make Me a Supermodel," says that when celebs do product ads or grace the cover of fashion magazines, they take jobs away from models.
The 38-year-old says it takes "a lot of tweaking and airbrushing to get the same from a celebrity that you would get from a model."
He also says fashion is cyclical, and he believes celeb magazine covers will one day go out of style.

The reason I highlighted that portion of what he said is, well read it and you realize how stupid that sounds. Hollywood has always been made of "the beautiful people" and now even more so the majority of actors have to look like models in order to get any work. What about all the models that have become actors like Cameron Diaz and the very adorable Rodrigo Santoro? Besides, the cover usually comes with some sort of interview and the last thing you want to do is hear a model speak. I mean I find eating disorders, drug addiction and the overall exhaustion of just having to pose while looking pretty for the picture as fascinating as the next gal, but I would much rather hear about the exquisite Jessica Alba's (child model btw) daughter any day.
