Fly Girl, LaLa Anthony covers the February Issue of YRB Magazine. In the latest issue of the Magazine LaLa showcases her fashion talents in a 10 page fashion feature like none she’s ever done.
Besides the high fashion, LaLa chat’s about following in Oprah‘s footsteps and being a role model.
On who’s career she’d like to Emulate
[Oprah]. She started in radio; I started in radio. She produced; I produced Tyson. She has done acting. She has done branding – she’s done everything.There was a time when people only wanted you doing one thing. If you are a host, you are only a host, only an actress, only a singer… And now, in this day and age, it’s about doing a lot of things and being good at all of them. I just want to prove that one person can be good at a lot of different things.
On her show and being a role model
I like that people think I’m so down to earth and real because that’s how I really am and I want to show that on the show, and also show that my life isn’t perfect,” she says. “I go through things like everybody else. When there is a bad moment and you want to turn the cameras off, that’s not reality. I don’t want to do that.
I don’t have to think about being a role model or doing things a certain way because all I do is really just be myself, and so far, that’s worked for me. The responsibilities might become overwhelming for another personality, but it’s all in a day’s work for La La. ”This is what comes with the territory of who I am. I would never complain about it. It’s a blessing to be in this position and do something that I love. I’m happy with my life, I’m happy with the position I’m in, and I’m happy to be in a position
to help others and be a role model to girls out there.
