Cardi T? Tyra Banks Shows Off Her Rapping Skills In 'Be A Star 2' Music Video, And Twitter Is Confused

"Eve" is coming for the Queen of Rap crown.

Published 2 weeks ago

Tyra Banks has, over the years, garnered a reputation for being the woman who can do it all — from fashion to acting to even music. (Who remembers the iconic "smash" that was "Shake Ya Body?")

Most recently, though, the jane-of-all-trades has tried her hand at rapping in promotion of her upcoming film, Life Size 2, and, unfortunately, it wasn't met with the overwhelmingly positive responses that her other works have received.

Banks, who plays doll "Eve" in the Life Size franchise, gave fans a taste of nostalgia by giving the character a bit of an edge. The usually buttoned up and conservative character was transformed into a rapper, decked out in 'fits that remain every Instagram model's fantasy.

Watch the lighthearted clip, below:

  1. Unfortunately, the attempt seemed to fall flat for some viewers, who were even fans of the first film. See how they reacted, below:

  2. Not all hope was lost, though, as some found the cheekiness of Banks' bars to be quite entertaining, making them even more excited for the forthcoming release.

  3. What do you think? Is Tyra — or rather, Eve — ready to snatch the rap crown?

    Life Size 2 premieres on Sunday, December 2 at 9 p.m. EST on Freeform.
