Hell to the no! This is Tila Tequila we’re talking about, and if she wants to be photographed “shopping” on Robertson Boulevard then she will be photographed on Robertson Blvd, facial cuts be damned! Our brave little attention whore embraced the paparazzi yesterday, sporting some bandages on her face after getting accosted by the audience at the Gathering of the Jugaloos.
We give Tila a lot of crap, but by all accounts the girl was pretty brutally attacked at the music festival (if you can even call it that) and handled it like a pro, performing through the entire onslaught of Faygo bottles and feces. (For some NSFW pics and a great account of what happened, read this photograph’s blog post.) Milk away, you tiny crazy lady. This is the one time you actually deserve some sympathy, and we expect you to squeeze another 15 minutes out of it.

Tila Tequila is probably used to extreme reactions. Her love of writhing on red carpets, her will she-won’t she Celebrity Rehab yo-yoing … exhibition streaking much? But nothing she’s ever done could have prepared her (or us), for what she was in for this weekend.
Tila was on stage at a the Gathering of the Juggalos concert in Illinois (you know, the “f*cking magnets, how do they work?” dudes) when the crowd apparently got dangerously out of hand, leaving her completely bruised and battered. She told TMZ about the incident stating, “ DUDES were throwing HUGE STONE ROCKS in my face, beer bottles that slit my eye open, almost burnt my hair on fire cuz they threw fire crackers on stage, and they even took the sh*t out of the port-0-potty and threw sh*t and piss at me when I was onstage.”
Is this true? Because it sounds totally unreal. No one deserves that sort of treatment, not even the most loathsome trainwreck in the world.
Tila aso said that even though she booked it to her trailer with her bodyguard and security team, it did nothing to deter the madness. The hecklers surrounded the trailer and tried to break in to get at her. Says Tila “… They almost got me so they finally reach the trailor, blood all over myself, cant stop bleeding, then all of a sudden, all 2 thousand people surround the trailor and busts the windows!!! Even the guys INSIDE with me were shaking! Their hands were shaking cuz they were so scared! So 3 guys inside the trailor had to grab a table and push it over the broken windows and grabbed all the chairs they could find so hold the people from outside back…”
Colt Cabana a wrestler who was part of the crowd says that Tila took off her top in a desperate attempt to deter the crowd. It didn’t work because they carried on throwing things at her. Tila actually had to use security members as a shield against the assault. As a result she has some gruesome cuts and bruises, but waited till she got back to L.A to get treated as she wanted to get the hell out of there. It doesn’t hurt that her return home also made for a killer photo op (see above). The police are currently trawling the internet for videos so they can ID culprits. Do you empathize with Tila? Let us know.
