Tequila Shots

So Tila Tequila is this self-made Internet celebrity. She is Asian and makes music and has her picture taken while wearing clothing that is not so much designed for warmth. People so much enjoy viewing images of her in said clothing that she has over a million MySpace friends. And she has parlayed that into a spot as a cover girl on Stuff magazine, appearances on MSNBC and The Showbiz Show with David Spade, and even a recording contract.

But don't take my word for it. See what Tila's bio has to say:

Tila Tequila has done it all on her own, and definitely on her own terms. She's an internationally known star who has built her network of fans literally, one friend at a time. What's more, she has the email addresses of all of her friends, who wouldn't want that sort of access to their fans and crew? It wasnt always so easy for Tila though, growing up in Houston, she actually lived in a Buddhist Temple with a gated community of few. By age 16, her tomboyish attitude got her kicked out of school and eventually landed in a boarding school. She had already been in a adult relationship for a few years, and was using her sister's ID to break into the club scene. Eventually tiring of Houston, she made her rounds to New York, where she experimented with drugs and a hardcore lifestyle. Tired of her all female mnage et trois relationship, she headed to Los Angeles where at 18, she was scouted by Playboy, and eventually became their first ever Asian Cyber Girl of the Month.

Never more than now has celebrity been celebrated so unbrokenly, no unabashedly, and so much without merit. Being famous now has become it's own reward. Consider American Idol, and ridiculous and addictive shows that somehow instantly translate stardom into celebrity. Tila Tequila has used simple, and some might agree Punk DIY ethics to create her stardom, one fan at a time. Not only is she the hottest property in MySpace, which means she's one of the hottest women in the world, but she's almost finished her debut album, and on the crest of an ever rising wave. She is featured on the new My Space compilation album alongside AFI, Fall Out Boy, Dashboard Confessional and Weezer amongst others. Surely this risings starlet is going to soon to take over the world.....one fan at a time.........


And hey look she's on The John Kerwin Show:

I'm guessing you used the Tequila Shots pun (is it a pun if she's named after it?) because you'd already used the more appropriate post title last week.

for some reason these kerwin youtube episodes are always unsynced and have buffering problems. Put 'em in another format, kenny.

Kenny said...

I haven't had that problem. They do always start out unsynced but for me they sync up in a few seconds... by the end of the opening it's pretty much in sync. Anyone else having trouble with it?

blafard said...

well, maybe if it weren't for the buffering problem I would still be watching by the time things resynched. I'm using a mac--could that be the reason that we have different experiences with this?

I have a Powermac and had slight probs, too, but on the whole the thing played alirght. But yeah. When it did happen it was *annoying.*

And by the by, I *heart* Tila! She's totally hot. I want to BE her ('cause she's totally hot, funny, and rocking it out on her own) - but then not 'cause I'm all that already without the peroxide and the boob job..but, a girl can dream! And guys too - dream on! HAHahahahaha! Or not. *Whatever.*
