Gawker Sez: Tila Tequila is World’s Worst Person

January 7, 2010

Gawker, now you jumpin’ on my hatin’ bandwagon! The media gossip site just printed a SCATHING critique of shameless media whore Tila Tequila (nee Tila Nguyen), who is now using the death of her “fiancee,” drug addled socialite Casey Johnson, to try to stay in the spotlight (read it here). It’s entitled “Tila Tequila: Disgusting Little Girl” and is basically EXACTLY what we would have written. In fact, we were thinking today “should we write about this disgusting Tila person? Nah, everyone’s gonna be all over it and it will be played to death.” But Gawker has paid your WorstPeople bloggers the GREATEST compliment of all. In fact, the thrust of the piece: “Tila Tequila is the world’s worst person.” Oh, snaps, now they steal our lines! Actually, it’s OK, Gawker, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and we all flattered and shit!

The analysis of why we should not care about or pay attention to Tequila is spot on and in-depth.  A great excerpt:

Casually tossing words like “worst” around is one of the unfortunate clichés of the current talky-head, bloggy media culture. But Tila Tequila, through her desperate attempts to latch onto and enable an heiress who was dealing with some serious addiction and psychological problems, has done enough for her to secure legitimate claim to the title in some category. Internet creation? Famewhore? Person in the World?

I don’t know if we need to spend much time further investigating this story. Though, one thing interesting to ponder: why is Tila like this? First, she saw the opportunity to make a “career” from doing nothing in our new reality/entertainment/famous for being famous media world. Also, her background says a lot. Child of immigrants who didn’t assimilate in to U.S. culture. From a poor background. Short of stature. Adolescence spent going off the rails on sex and substances. Lack of formal education. An Asian in a “modeling” world where 5-foot-tall FOBs are not exactly a hot commodity. What does this all say? LOW SELF-ESTEEM. Of course, someone with zero self-esteem like Tila is going to seek as much negative attention as possible. Classic psychology.

Anyway, being a basket case whack-job doesn’t absolve her. I think all the votes are in. Tila Tequila, the talentless trainwreck who helped to wreck the life of a tragic person, is officially the WORST PERSON in the WORLD.

Thanks for reading.
