Tila Tequila,modfxTila Tequila Early Life
Tila Tequila was born in Singapore, where her family emigrated from Vietnam after the Vietnam War. When Tila was a year old, she and her family lived in a neighborhood in Houston until they were admitted to a gated community run by a strict Buddhist temple. The family left the community when Nguyen was eight.

Tila Tequila, toplessWhile in middle school, Tila Tequila became a tomboy and was eventually sent to a boarding school for six months for her combative behavior before transferring to another school. While in high school, she used her sister's identification card to enter nightclubs, where she began recreational drug use and joined a gang. In an interview with Import Tuner, Nguyen said she had been searching for a sense of identity: "I was really confused then, [because] at first I thought I was black, then I thought I was Hispanic and joined a cholo gang". Later, friends outside the gang briefly helped turn her life around. However her past caught up with her, and she fled to Queens, New York at the age of 16.

Tila Tequila modfxLet's rewind back 3 to 4 years ago when you were modeling. Are you still doing that now?
I don't model as much anymore. I'm just trying to focus more into my music now. That was my main reason I moved to L.A. I used modeling as a vehicle to open doors to everything else and build a fan base. That's all I do now since being in the studio takes so much of your time, and I don't have much left for modeling anymore. But if all my fans want modeling pictures, I'll give it to them. (Ha Ha)

One of the biggest things you're known for is your MySpace page. Do you approve all your friends and messages yourself or do you have someone do it for you?
I do it myself. MySpace has really blown up these few years. Being the most popular girl on MySpace is a big deal. Years ago I would only have a fan base in the import industry, but now I would have fans in London and Japan. It's kind of a trip when someone sees you in a store and recognizes you from MySpace.

How did you come up with your name? : Tila Tequila
Tila Tequila came from the 8th grade. My friends and I would go out to drink for the first time. I ended up getting sick and puking everywhere. The next day in school everyone started making fun of me saying, "Hey! There's Tila Tequila"! And that's where I got it from.

Speaking of old friends, have you ever seen any of the ones from high school that used to bully you around?
Yeah, it's actually funny because a few of them would write to me on MySpace saying that they're glad I'm doing well. It's all good since I don't really dwell in the past. I wasn't the perfect little angel anyway so I don't hold that against anybody.

Looking back now on all your accomplishments, what would you say is your most favorite experience?
Well, my dream was having a record deal, and being in the position where you not only have just one but several labels chasing after me to sign with them is really exciting. At that moment you just think, "WOW"!

Tell us about the sound of your music?
When I first started, I was trying to figure out my sound. So I started with a band to get a fan base and get things going. After doing it for 6 years, you start to find out what you like and what your sound is. So my stuff is really club bangers and hits that make people wanna get on stage and become a stripper! Ha ha!
