Tyra Banks knows how to make a statement, and that's exactly what she plans on doing when she hosts the Daytime Emmys.
"I'm really excited because I like to shake things up," Banks tells PEOPLE of hosting the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in April. "I think being silly is so fun."
Though she says the show will still "give respect where it is due," the America's Next Top Model host is also looking forward to "pushing the envelope."
Banks told PEOPLE three things daytime fans can expect on the show.

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences released the 41st annual Daytime Emmy Award nominations Thursday, which included a few high-profile selections.
Ellen DeGeneres may not have a nomination in the outstanding talk-show host category – but The Ellen DeGeneres Show led the talk-show field in total nominations, with nine. The host, who won that category from 2003 (when her show premiered) until 2008, has not submitted herself for nominations since and so she is not eligible to be nominated.
This year's outstanding talk-show host nominees include Dr. Mehmet Oz, Katie Couric, Rachael Ray, the hosts of The Talk (Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood) and the hosts of The View (Whoopi Goldberg, Jenny McCarthy, Sherri Shepherd and a retiring Barbara Walters).
Notable hosts who were not included are Queen Latifah and Wendy Williams.
In addition to DeGeneres's show, nominees in the outstanding talk show/entertainment category include Live! with Kelly and Michael, Rachael Ray, The Talk and The View.

"It feels great," Massey, 22, tells PEOPLE. "It's a huge honor and I'd love to have another piece of hardware but we'll see what happens in June."

Regis Philbin, who is leaving Live! with Regis & Kelly in November, picked up a Daytime Emmy Award for best talk-show host Sunday, an honor he shared with co-host Kelly Ripa and Dr. Mehmet Oz of The Dr. Oz Show.
It was the fifth Daytime Emmy for Philbin, 79, following two wins in 2001 (best game-show host and talk-show host), one in 2006, and a lifetime achievement award in 2008.
Philbin has never won for best talk show, and he and Ripa came up short again this year, as The Ellen Degeneres Show won that award for the sixth time.
