    that's just it though...

    Name ONE female asian singer/pop star that's been made more famous than Tila? The truth of the matter is there's no capacity for asian pop stars, it's a low ceiling for them.

    I'm not trying to start a fight here with anyone, I just think our culture is very subtly racist in a lot of ways.

    After a quick google search, it becomes apparent that juggalos a) can't spell to save their lives, and b) really like to see "titties."

    If that's a point you're trying to make, I think you've picked a poor example. Does she have any demonstrable talent?

    Probably true. If Beyonce were asian nobody would've heard of her.

    ETA: this was meant to be a joke, btw

    I've never even heard of these people before, but Tallulah just skooled me.

    I wouldn't point one out, because I don't believe this particular prejudice exists.

    This. Tila is probably one notch below Paris on the vapid media whore scale, and yet, if this happened to Paris or one of the Kardashian sisters, even, you'd see the same reaction. Though Paris or Kim probably wouldn't be desperate enough for cash that they'd take the ICP gig.

    I don't agree with what happened, though. She's stupid and vapid, but I'm sure it was terrifying to be hunted down by a pack of semiliterate Bozo-thug wannabes in the middle of Nowhere, Illinois. She shouldn't have taken the gig, especially if she didn't really understand the "culture." But there should have been some security or a police presence there to prevent stuff like this from happening. It seems like the kind of thing that is pretty likely to happen with a large gathering like this.

    there's plenty of female asian pop stars who have sold millions of records in asia. why should success in the west be seen as the pinnacle of achievement? like it doesn't count unless white, rich people like you?

    people are poking fun because she's a walking parody of what's sick with the entertainment industry.

    Strawberriez, when will you understand that no one can name any really high-end asian pop stars because they don't exist, not because asian pop culture is more popular in, Ya know, Asia.

    Anime fanboys don't drip in their pants at the opportunity to see asian pop sensations live in concert via Anime conventions or anything. They're too white to be bothered with such trivial things. /troll hating rant.

    Aaanyways. It is interesting that people focused right on Tila Tequila herself.. my first reaction was immediately "omg what shitty security detail".. I didn't even really think of her.
    Kantgirl: Just say "I'm feminine and I'll punch anyone who says otherwise!"
    Halla74: Think your way through the world. Feel your way through life.

    Cimarron: maybe Prpl will be your girl-bud
    prplchknz: i don't like it
