Los Angeles: Supermodel Tyra Banks has said that she doesn`t like to use the label "plus-size” as it has a negative connotation to it.

The 40-year-old supermodel said that she instead uses the term fiercely real.

"I don`t like the label `plus-size`. I don`t want to use the term `plus-size`, because, to me, what the hell is that? It just doesn`t have a positive connotation to it. I tend to not use it," huffingtonpost.com quoted Banks as saying.

Banks is currently campaigning with Special K to ban `fat talk` and promote positive body image.
