Tila to MySpace: Back Off, Don't Turn "Evil"

3/20/2007 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tila TequilaSaucy model Tila Tequila is lashing out at the cyberhand that feeds her, accusing MySpace.com of going too "corporate" for her liking.

In a statement on her MySpace page, which is connected with 1.7 million friends, Tila blasted the networking site after she was asked to remove a certain media player from her webstie. "I feel like they've become so corporate now and won't even allow me to do fun stuff on my page anymore such as post up cool new widgets from other websites," Tila wrote. "MySpace will now only allow you to use MYSPACE things and that means you can not find other ways to promote yourself. In other words ... you're just stuck here and only here."

She directed her ire directly at MySpace, saying, "Please I ask you guys....don't sell out on us now. You guys used to be so cool. Don't turn into a corporate evil monster." Perhaps it's too late.

The content in question is Indie911.com's Hoooka player -- a multimedia player that artists and users can put on their sites. It not only streams videos and songs, but users can purchase them straight from the player.



The player was posted on Tila's page to promote her first album, but was removed over the weekend. Other artists, however, still have Hoooka players on their MySpace pages. A rep for MySpace tells TMZ, "MySpace did not remove anything from Tila's profile. A MySpace representative contacted her and told her that she had violated our terms of service in regards to commercial activity. She removed the material herself, after realizing it was not appropriate for MySpace."

Calls to Tequila's reps were not returned.

Wow, what a waste of space on TMZ for this non-story! When you could be reporting on actual CELEBRITY happenings, you devote page space to someone who 99% of readers don't know about. Way to go!!
Hey, I hear there's a blog written by an eskimo on livejournal who talks about her seal skin collection, maybe you want to check that out?!?

Yeah MySpace is too corporate for her after she sells music on her site. Sounds to me like she's the one selling out. I always knew she was a "hoooka". Can porn be far off for this no-talent trollop? Save your voice for singing lessions Squealer Tequila.

it doesnt matter anyways if she is "trying" to promote her music or her crappy vids. no body likes her anyways... all she does is sell her body more than the music.. jefree starr is aay better than her. tila just needs to hang it up.. she even started a beef with jared leto.. how desperate can she get?

LOL. She is the chick with the most myspace friends. She is a Witch she deleted me just because i sent a bulletin about boycotting a company, that is against immigrants. Excuse me i guess she doesn't want anyone else after her coming over. Boo! She can't sing either so im glad they won't let her put her stupid player up.

This bitch is a mediocre looking, a TERRIBLE TERRIBLE singer. Why is she on TMZ.com and why does she think she was on Myspace "before it was cool". What a dumbass.

What's the matter TT? Are you a tad bit upset that only a small percentage of your "friends" on myspace are buying into your music (using the term loosely)? Yah, keep on bitchin chica, I've got news for you, MySpace was there a long time before you were and I'd bet that Tom and all the other MySpace people could really give a damn what you want... you are a JOKE

Yes she is a really bad singer, that single she has is awful. And if you don't like myspace than delete your account, nobody is making you keep it. Oh that's right they made you, made it possible to release that crappy album. And by the way, don't you have your own website? If you don't like myspace post whatever you want on your own website.
