If Tyra Only Knew What Smize Really Means
Tyra Banks is known for her Tyra-isms. Throughout 15 cycles of American's Next Top Model she's brought many new words and wonky phrases into the pop culture lexicon. She's behind "fierce" (and all it's incarnations, including "fierceness"), which became so played out we called for a moratorium on the word. But the neologism Tyra is most known for, of course, is "smize." Even if you don't watch ANTM, you probably have heard of the "smize" and know that it means smiling with your eyes. But apparently "smize" means something else. Something we don't think Tyra would like.
