Model-turned-reality star Miss Tila recently chopped it up with SOHH and revealed the death of an artist formerly known as Tila Tequila.
While the name “Tila Tequila” made headlines throughout the mid-to-late 2000’s, she is officially off her past alias.
“Tila Tequila was just an accidental screen name that I signed up with for Myspace,” Tila told SOHH. “So what would have happened if my name was SexyGirl87? Would that be my name [now]? ‘A Shot At Love W/ SexyGirl87′ It’s like, come on, that was just a screen name and that’s not my name. I would really appreciate it people, like, you don’t have to call me ‘Miss’ if you don’t want to, just call me Tila. But just don’t call me Tequila. I hate that name. It’s ‘not’ my name. It’s had its use for the TV show and everything but that show’s gone and done.” (SOHH)
Moving forward with her music career, the Singaporean bombshell said she only goes by Tila these days.
“Everything I’ve done with Tila Tequila is done,” Tila added. “I don’t like her. So just call me Tila. Tila Tequila is totally dead. I hate that girl. [laughs] But Miss Tila has arrived, darling.” (SOHH)
Last spring, The Clipse’s Malice revealed plans to change his rap alias.
“I’m not a malicious person, and I don’t really like answering to that. I know that people that follow The Clipse or follow my music, they know Malice, so I understand that, I get that,” Malice said in an interview. “But you don’t want to be under any moniker that’s of evil intent, that’s not you. I come to more believe that there’s so much power in the tongue. The power of the tongue is life and death, so I believe if you are what you fall under whether it’s in your subconscious or not. It’s just me trying to clean up a little bit. But I haven’t thought of that name yet. So Malicious is what it is right now.” (Ruby Hornet TV)
Known for changing his moniker from Puff Daddy to P. Diddy, Diddy recently announced plans to go under the name ‘Swag’ for a short time period.
“Check it out, so I decided I’m going to change my name for a week in honor of my comeback,” Diddy revealed in a video. “Y’all know I’ve been known as Puff, Puffy, Puff Daddy, Diddy, P. Diddy, King Combs, earlier it was Sean Combs, and for a week, this week only, call me by my new name, ‘Swag.’ Check it out. My new name is Swag.” (P Twitty TV)
