Social Networking Sites New Celebrity Training Ground


Oh, it's been what, a few days since we lobbed a piece of pointless editorial fluffery at you simply to put an image of a hot girl on the site? We don't want to break our track record so we'll give you this little piece about how nobodies rise from the muck of MySpace to celebrity status. Yes, MySpace member Tila (Nguyen) Tequila, who says she has the world's most popular MySpace page has graduated to the April cover of StuffMySpace Makes magazine. This at the same time Ad Age's Simon Dumenco says obsession with celebrity is dying and Gawker has asked readers to stop sending in C and D list celebs for its Gawker Stalker feature. As long as your hot and you have a camera on you, you are a celebrity.

"In the future everyone will have 15 minutes of privacy"

Me, just now.

I often wonder if celebrity will ever die as a fad? Mind you, if you're worth celebrating, you're worth celebrating I's to that lady's bottom, "cheers!"

TILA TEQUILA IS A FAKE. Credit goes to Thilo for figuring this out. Itís pretty clear once you read the overexaggerated ebonics and other nonsense on her myspace website.

See Thiloís site for more info

I donít know about you but Iím tired of sham musicians existing in the music industry and people who are gullible enough to think that they have actual talent. Letís end this one for all b/c theyíve gone too far. You can clearly even see that there may be more than one model that represents the idea of Tila. Judge for yourself.
