Tila Nguyen, known from 2005 to 2011 as Tila Tequila, is a Vietnamese-American softcore model, musician, porn star and reality TV personality. Started out as a glamour/softcore model for magazines like Playboy. Due to her enormous popularity on Myspace (having had the most-friended page at the time when Myspace first broke into the mainstream), she rose to fame through her MTV reality show, A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila and A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila 2. Afterwards she launched a music career independently, distributing her music through the likes of iTunes; however she is better known for her rather outrageous antics (such as uStream rants where she pulls out her tampon), rumors she spreads about herself (numerous false pregnancies), and generally being an Attention Whore. She's somewhat of a Guilty Pleasure to watch; many follow her due to Bile Fascination. After a severe mental breakdown in 2012, she now has declared all-out war against the reptilian Illuminati living in their bunkers on the moon!
This musician shows examples of:
- Asian Airhead
- Attention Whore: Her more recent opinions can be seen as trying to stay relevant now that Myspace isn't the social media powerhouse it once was.
- Anything That Moves: She seems to be attracted to quite a lot of people...
- Cloud Cuckoolander: Taken Up to Eleven in 2012, after Tila Tequila overdosed on pills and suffered a brain aneurysm and started flooding her website and Facebook page with rants◊ about a Government Conspiracy to cover up the aliens and the New World Order.
- Conspiracy Theorist: Her New World Order rants and claims that the Earth is flat and the fact is somehow being covered up by NASA place her squarely in this category.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Appeared on Ted Nugent's short-lived reality show as well as The Playboy Channel's "Sexy Girls Next Door" series and was completely forgettable compared to now.
- Everybody Wants the Hermaphrodite: Tila Tequila was rumored to be a hermaphrodite for awhile. This actually bolstered her fame as more people wanted to have sex with "her".
- Freudian Excuse: Based on The Other Wiki, she has/had identity issues which lead to... everything else.
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: Tila is tiny at 4'11" especially compared to 6"4" Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins.
- Intercourse with You: Quite a lot of her songs are about sex.
- Lipstick Lesbian: She's currently claiming she's been strictly lesbian all along, and her producers forced her to do the Shot At Love shows.
- Ms. Fanservice: Try to find a pic of hers where she isn't half naked. (If that.) That's also not taking into account her foray into porn.
- My Girl Is Not a Slut: She blogged about it, but being that it's her, no one listened.
- My Girl Is a Slut: She's released at least one song about how she kicks guys out of bed when she's done with them because she "doesn't want love, just a good fuck".
- Self-Deprecation: She guest-starred in a Robot Chicken sketch, appearing as a robotic "pre-pubescent alien whore", whose emotions are "appropriate almost 50% of the time!"Tila: I am very bisexial!
- Slut-Shaming: Has constantly been a victim of it.
- Torches and Pitchforks: Tila's counter-booked appearance at the 2010 Gathering of the Juggalos lead to attendees pelting the stage with bottles and litter.
