Her Space

Guys and girls crave Tila Tequila on MTV’s hottest dating show.

Born to Be Bi
“I’ve always been bisexual. Even before I was 10 years old, I would play around with other girls. I’ve been attracted to women my whole life, so I wasn’t, like, figuring myself out. As soon as I hit high school, I came out with it and didn’t care.”

Does Your Mama Know?
When I explained to MTV that it hasn’t been easy finding somebody in my personal life and that I’m bisexual, they said, ‘Let’s capture that!’ I was hesitant only because I hadn’t told my parents I was bi, but then I figured this would be a good way to let them know.”

Down With Haters
“People would call the police on us while we were shooting and say, ‘There are two girls making out.’ I was like, ‘Maybe I should call the cops because I see straight people holding hands!’ Show or no show, there will be people who don’t want to open their minds.”

New Media Magnate
“I’m proud to be one of the pioneers of Internet media. I joined MySpace because I kept getting kicked off Friendster—I had too many friends! With my music, I turned down major label offers and released my songs on iTunes instead. I call my sound gangsta pop. It’s a mix of pop and hip-hop, with lyrics about all kinds of things…including sex, naturally.”

A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on MTV.
