Tila tequila who is she dating
, a dating show where men and women competed for Tila’s attention and affection.
The way Time describes her accurately captures how she embodied the flavor of the Internet at the moment, though it is also kind of depressing to read knowing how far she’s fallen: “Nguyen clearly grasps the logic of Web 2.0 in a way that would make many CEOs weep. She has a cameo in next summer’s Adam Sandler movie.And while the first reaction we should have to that is how sad that is, the other is that what the Internet makes, it can also break and sweep under the rug. She didn’t have a talent in the traditional sense, but then again, neither did Paris Hilton, who was becoming very famous for very little at the same time Tila joined My Space, in 2003.Social media has changed what it means to be a celebrity, and while that does help people court fame through grassroots networking, it also makes it hard for fragile celebrities to keep a healthy private life – and since Internet celebrity is a more fickle type of fame than traditional stardom, the mix of no filter and no safety net can make for a disastrous combination. Of course, Paris Hilton is an heiress who looked like a Barbie and grew up around flashbulbs and celebrities. Tila had to work a little harder and look for alternate routes to fame.Either way, it didn’t exactly help lift her above her increasingly sordid reputation.She basically became the anti-Kim Kardashian; instead of lifting herself above the salaciousness of an early start in T&A, she became more engrossed in the sleazy side of show business.
