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 the ultra-successful MySpace.com website, with a record breaking 1.4 million friends.
Raised in a Buddhist temple, the Vietnamese teenager soon rebelled against her strict upbringing, developing into an out-spoken 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 recently listed on Maxim Magazine's 'Hot 100' list for 2006, and is featured in Rolling Stone's 2006 'Hot Issue'.
A musician at heart, Tila's much anticipated debut release will be out later this fall, after finishing in the studio with platinum and multi-platinum producers such as Lil Jon, Junior Sanchez and DJ Lethal.
A versatile artist, Tila has made numerous television and film appearances, including an upcoming cameo opposite Adam Sandler in the Universal Pictures feature "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry."
Her 'Tequila' nickname originates from a near fatal drinking experience. Ironically, Tila is allergic to alcohol.
