MySpace “star” Tila Tequila (aka Tila Nguyen) shares some words of inspiration to her loving fans via a video blog entitled:
TILA TEQUILA-WORDS OF INSPIRATION-KEEPIN IT REAL.
She speaks out on HATERS–most notably, that there are ‘lotta haters out there, and fuck ‘em!
It was, as she describes, hard for a girl like her growing up–she was an ostracized Asian midget in Houston, Texas. The pint-sized (4’11″) pop dwarf was just trying to make it in modeling and music in a town that totally rejected her:
“…I was the first Asian girl, and you know, being in America and everything, you know, the Asian community has not, was not very popular, and I had a lot of obstacles to overcome.”
They said she looked like an Alien. They told her she was meant for porn (I mean…). They said she was too short to model (But she is, right? Not for Gymboree I suppose, but definitely for Prada). They hated on her, dude! But duuuuude, I’m SO NOT HATIN’ RIGHT NOW.
Apparently the only way for a smart, sassified Asian woman with a message to make it out of Houston is to keep it real (dye your hair blonde), bust your ass (and adorn it with many varieties of thong underwear) and work hard (at being photographed from behind). Jen, can you speak to this with any kind of authority?
The words of inspiration go on. Did the hatin’ stop her? Hell naw. She kept on keepin’ on, followin’ her dreams, doin’ her thing.
I actually once had the incredible
misfortune of unexpectedly and unwittingly witnessing Ms. Tequila’s “thing” live at the House of Blues–an electric mess of hot pants, shrill “punk” hollers, audience interaction, and flat pseudo-rapping.
I’M NOT HATIN’!
In fact, from this point on, there will be nothing but love. I shall only point out the positive. NO HATIN’ WHATSOEVER. Do you hear that, Tila?
Take her video for Electric Bon Bon, for instance! First off, there are lots of colors. It’s very “Crayola Chic.” Her gyrating is so good that it almost makes me forget to mention how cool it is that the song doesn’t really need a melody. Also, SHE’S IN A FREAKING MUSIC VIDEO! How many people can say that? Livin’ the dream!
Did Tila, perchance, remember to Windex that pole before rubbing her Tila Titticacas all over them? Hey, that’s just me being hygienically inquisitive. More importantly: Really happy smile. Really happy.
Is this strange little garden area in that guy BoBo’s back yard in the valley? That isn’t really positivity or haterating or whatever. Something about it just totally made “818″ pop into my head. I have no idea why. Anyway…
