There's no doubt about it; Tyra Banks changed the face of the modelling industry forever. From starting a massively successful TV show on the concept of model-hunting, to fashion lines to movies (Lifesize, anyone?), the woman is iconic.

Her star is set to rise even further, if that's even possible, because apparently she's set to open a 21,000 square foot AMUSEMENT PARK in Los Angeles about models. Seriously…Just picture the level of fierce.

We, for one, were literally obsessed with America's Next Top Model; the show spanned 24 cycles and we watched them all. The television series had a huge number of hooked fans, so her Model-Land theme park should be a success.

The woman is legit the Walt Disney of beauty.

She posted a stunning image to her Instagram, and captioned the snap; "My dream for you will soon be a reality. #ModelLand. A place where everyone can be a model. A place where all beauty is celebrated."

"I can’t wait for you to step into your light. Head over to Model-Land.com to sign up for more information." Oh, sign up we did. The veteran model recently opened ANTM for all genders, more inclusive body types, heights and rid the show's of an eligibility age limit.

According to Model-Land's press release, the amusement park is;

"A first-of-its-kind experiential attraction, Model-land will intersect a fantasy version of the modelling world with state-of-the-art interactive entertainment, creative collaborations, curated retail, dining and special events." 

"The breakthrough new attraction is set to open in late 2019 at Macerich’s Santa Monica Place, the iconic open-air shopping, dining and entertainment destination just blocks from the beach in Santa Monica."

“I created Top Model to expand the definition of beauty based on my own pain of being told ‘no’ that I couldn’t do something because I’m curvy or I’m black. My empathy for women in general increased through the experience," Banks told Booth Moore of WWD.

Tyra continued, expressing her hope for even more expansion;

"And now with Model-land, I’m taking it ten steps forward, giving people the opportunity to engage with the elusive world by opening it up to everyone. Men, women, families, all generations can come and enter this model world for a day, have a fun shopping experience, and an eventful meal. This will be the first of many.”

As a permanent destination, visitors will be able to "step into their light" so just about anyone can be a model. Banks spoke about her Disneyland inspiration, a place she went a lot as a child; 

"There is a storyline I have been working on for a year. Anybody can enter and feel like a model,” she said about the space.

Banks, as the godmother of breaking beauty barriers, is continuing her mission to bring modelling to the masses. She really does bring the industry into the mainstream, and we love her for it.

At one point or another everyone has dreamed of what it must be like to live like the rich and famous.

But while most people focus on how their newfound wealth could transform their lives, many forget that with celebrity status comes the freedom to get away with doing things the average Joe Soap cannot.

In this latest clip from The Ellen Show, Ellen DeGeneres and Britney Spears run amok in a mall because, well, they can.

Highlights include running up downward facing escalators, receiving 100 percent discounts on suits, letting everyone know how famous they are, taking handfuls of sprinkles for a walk and forcing a random person to take money from a fountain on their behalf.

Check it out below:

This is truly amazing.

Just when you thought adverts couldn’t get anymore cheesy, there’s this…

The Easthills shopping mall, presumably in America (sorry, but come on…) shows off all of the great things you can buy and do there, such as buy jeans and BACKPACKS!

And please, please, don’t forget the “haaaircut.”

Of course, this brought back those glorious memories of the very first time we ever saw How I Met Your Mother's Robyn singing and dancing her way through Let's go to the Mall.

Plus, it's another excuse to play it. Again, and again, and again.
