Creating Myself: How I Learned That Beauty Comes in All Shapes, Sizes, and Packages, Including Me by Mia TylerWow. I cant believe I wasted so much time on this one book. I didnt seek it out, but I found it on the shelves next to the books about fashion (which I DID seek out) and picked it up because it looked mildly interesting. Then I made the bad choice of taking it as my sole source of entertainment on a weekend trip and became so invested that I had to finish it, just to see if it got better by the end. (It didnt.)
This is by Mia Tyler, the daughter of Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler and one of his groupies (who he married briefly) from the seventies. There are several main points of this book:
1. The author hated her mother. I dont blame her; she sucked. She was a drug addicted, neglectful, horrible woman. However, she seems to adore her father, always begging him to let her live with him and talking about what a great dad he was, never seeming to register that this AMAZING dad left her for 18 years with a drug addicted, neglectful, horrible woman to care for her. If you love you kid, then why would you choose drugs, groupies and rock n roll tours over her? Yep, he deserves Dad of the Year. I mean, he had a successful rock n roll career, so that makes up for being a complete loser in every other aspect of his life, right?
2. This girl has done a LOT of drugs. Her dad put her in re-hab around 18 or 19ish (when she pointed out how grateful she was to have a dad like Steven Tyler who knew all about re-hab and could afford a really good one, neglecting the fact that she wouldnt NEED re-hab if her parents hadnt passed their drug habits on to her), and she seems to think she was a success because she wasnt as hard core a drug user afterwards. Yet about every page after her rehab stint she talks about smoking some pot or getting wasted on alcohol. So, what....? How is that recovered? She was even devastated when she miscarried a pregnancy about three weeks in, realizing with guilt shed used coke for a few days with her husband the week or two prior, and this was six months after going off birth control. I dont think shes nearly as improved as she thinks she is. She has a loooooooong way to go before she is a healthy person.
3. She lost her virginity young (her promiscuous behavior and drug use I blame on her awful parents to a large extent, by the way), and sleeps with SO MANY guys in the book. Maybe Im just an old married lady, but when she would say things like, I am not a slut and then talk about her fling from the night before that was preoccupying her thoughts, I say, your stupid actions speak louder than your words. I know, I know. You wont just sleep with ANYONE, Mia. He has to be hot and in front of you, and...not dead. And being involved in a band is a plus. And any time a guy wants to lose his virginity that night, you clearly cant say no to that, right?
4. She reports that her mom finally found a good guy right before she died of brain cancer. But this perfect guy that Mia had always dreamed of for her mom (who she hated) was a big scary looking dude who had done time in prison. So... when the perfect guy (in your mind) is an ex-criminal, I think youve set your standards really low. I hope this good guy doesnt read me writing this about him and come beat me up.
5. Not surprisingly, she had a bad marriage to an abusive man. She was engaged again to a new guy right before she wrote this book. Are they still together? I have no idea. All I know is that I hope Mia doesnt have kids. Not unless she can unscrew up her life 90,000%. Her mom has screwy parents, too. It just keeps going from on generation to another. The end of the book wraps up with her explaining some of her current relationship problems with this guy, but that theyre working it out and now she has finally learned all of her lessons and is a responsible, cured human being. It sounds to me like the first chapter of the next disaster in her life to me. (Also, I loved the first time she met him, when a typo said she met a guy named Brain. His name is actually Brian, of course. Even the editors couldnt stand to pay close attention by the end, when I saw several typos pretty close together.)
By the way, I am not all the impressed with models, plus sized or not. If you can do the job totally plastered, can it REALLY be that hard?
I thought the whole family was so dysfunctional, and I cant believe that Mia Tyler is supposed to be this great role model for young women. Because if youre a fat teenage girl, the only person you can look up to and model your life after is a fat super model, right? It doesnt matter if she is a drug addicted, irresponsible, promiscuous, crass, emotionally unstable, suicidal, law breaking psychopath. But shes fat and still thinks shes hot, so...put her on a pedestal. Mia Tyler is a role model. No wonder this world is so screwy! She should not be a role model. Surely I am not the only one noticed this, right? Or am I the only sane person willing to read her book?
Liv Tyler Sister Plus Size Model
Liv Tyler : How could I forget? I knew you were rock royalty but I felt like I was just a rock kid. I felt like people were judging us all the time. It was one of the only times I ever related to how our parents must have felt in the 60s and 70s, being different from everyone else. The amazing thing was when we woke up we were on the cover of WWD, just the two of us, hand in hand in our Rock Royalty Filth Mart T-shirts and I felt quite proud, like maybe just maybe we were rock royalty in some way. It was one of my favourite nights because it was so pure and so spontaneous.

By Ross Mcdonagh For Dailymail. - Mia Abagale Tallarico born December 22, ,  better known as Mia Tyler , is an American actress, model , author, visual artist, media personality, socialite, fashion designer, talent manager and music promoter. Mia's parents divorced in , and by she and her mother relocated from New Hampshire to New York City.
Bebe, a famous model and rock and roll groupie, and her life-partner Todd Rundgren raised her. Shortly after her birth, though, her mother broke up with Todd and moved herself and Liv to Portland, Maine. At the age of 9 Liv began to suspect that Steven Tyler might be her biological father when she attended an Aerosmith concert. When she approached her mother about this she admitted it and they discussed it. Three years later Liv changed her last name to Tyler. Liv was convinced to start modeling at 14 by family friend Paulina Porizkova, who was also a famous model.
It is possible to be a model without any prior experience or modeling classes. In order to be a teen model, first you need to make sure you meet a few basic requirements. This is the minimum age that most modeling agencies will want you to be in order to be signed with them. Next, are you the right height to be a model? Designers prefer tall models simply because the clothes look better on the runways on tall models. If you are shorter than the modeling industry standards, there is still a small market for petite models, but the work will be very limited. Most models are anywhere from a size 0 to a size 4.
