Mini Bio (2)
Singapore-born, Houston-raised Tila "Tequila" Nguyen has become a pop culture sensation. She is one of the most popular personalities in cyberspace, breaking records on MySpace, with a record breaking 1.4 million friends, as well as Facebook.
Raised in a Buddhist temple, the Vietnamese teenager soon rebelled against her strict upbringing, developing into an outspoken tomboy before being discovered by international magazine editors. Since then, this Texan beauty has graced the covers of numerous magazines including Maxim UK and Stuff, was listed on Maxim Magazine's "Hot 100" list, and has been featured in Rolling Stone's "Hot Issue".
A musician at heart, Tila's has recorded with numerous platinum and multi-platinum producers such as Lil Jon, Junior Sanchez and Leor Dimant (aka DJ Lethal). A versatile artist, Tila has made numerous television and film appearances, including a cameo opposite Adam Sandler in the Universal Pictures feature I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry (2007). Her "Tequila" nickname originates from a near fatal drinking experience. Ironically, Tila is allergic to alcohol.

Tila Nguyen was born in Singapore, but moved to Houston, Texas when she was just a year old. Born to French-Vietnamese parents, Nguyen lived in a strict Buddhist community until she was eight. She had a turbulent childhood: at eleven she tried heroin, at thirteen she began to drink, at fourteen she was sent to a boarding school for several months, at fifteen she got her first tattoo and began to smoke, and she ran away to New York City at sixteen.
By chance, Tila was discovered at a mall by a Playboy scout right after graduating from high school. She was skeptical at first, but then accepted the offer and moved out to West Hollywood.
She is now a singer, actress, and the most friended person on MySpace.
