Within a year, she earned her place as the most searched porn actress, soon after which she quit her career in the industry. This Mia Khalifa biography will lead you through all that you need to know about the number 1 ranking porn artist.
Who is Mia Khalifa?
Mia Khalifa (born February 10, 1993) is a Lebanese American social media personality and webcam model, who’s best known for her career as a porn actress.
Though Mia acted in the porn industry only from 2014 to 2015, she quickly gained huge success, becoming the most searched porn actress on the pornography website, PornHub.
Mia Khalifa was born in Beirut, Lebanon, and moved to the United States in 2000. She began her career as a pornography actress in 2014 and was soon ranked as the number 1 performer on PornHub.
Her career was met with controversy from the in the Middle East, especially for a porn video that she had featured in while wearing an Islamic hijab.
How Mia Entered The Porn Industry
Mia Khalifa moved to the United States in the year 2000 and was raised in a Catholic family, as a Catholic. However, she doesn’t practice the religion anymore. She lived in Maryland and played lacrosse in high school. Later, she graduated from the University of Texas at El Passo with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History. Shortly after turning 18, Mia got married.
Mia Khalifa worked at Whataburger, where she was approached by a customer who asked her if she had ever considered appearing in porn. And that was when she did.
She entered the porn industry in the October of 2014 and soon became the most-viewed pornstar on the pornography website: PornHub.
Sometime during December in the same year, PornHub revealed that Mia Khalifa had been ranked the number 1 performer on the website.
Her Quick Success As A Pornstar
Mia Khalifa began her work as a pornstar in 2014 and earned her rank as the number 1 performer within a year.
While any performer certainly needs to have the skills to make it to the top, there may be several apparent reasons that could’ve helped her with exposure.
Mia appeared in a porn movie wearing an Islamic hijab, which became a reason for the porn actor to meet controversy in the Middle East, leading her to receive death threats from people who were offended by the presence of hijab in the video.
Moreover, Mia has a part of the Lebanese national anthem, as well as the Lebanese Forces-cross tattooed on her arms. People of Lebanon found this offensive due to her choice of career, which resulted in controversies.
Apart from these incidents, Mia Khalifa’s creative approach to pornography helped her gain the popularity and success she has achieved.
Controversy And Death Threats
Mia’s featuring in a porn movie wearing an Islamic hijab stirred a lot of controversy in the Middle East, which involved her receiving death threats. According to the porn-actor herself, the messages had turned “pretty scary”.
She had begun receiving messages from people who asked her to kill herself and even photoshopped her face on the image of a person in an orange jumpsuit, similar to that of people who get executed by the Islamic State. Despite its small size, Lebanon has often been at the center of Middle Eastern conflicts.
Though many Lebanese people stood up for her, threats and internet hate-speech is something that finds it way around everything.
Mia Khalifa Drake Creep-Out
In an interview, Mia gave out extremely obvious hints that the famous rapper, Drake, attempted to creep her out through her Instagram DM inbox.
While she initially refused to reveal the who the creeping celebrity was, Mia later told the interviewer that the man’s name rhymes with “Rake”.
Nice work, Drake.
According to the porn-actress Mia Khalifa, the rapper sent her a half-naked picture on Instagram. She told the interviewer that the interaction between her and the rapper was flattering, but she clearly saw his cringe-worthy intentions.
Apparently, the Mia Khalifa Drake encounter wasn’t a good decision from the rapper’s side. We’re pretty sure that a lot of us are aware how creepy sending unsolicited nudes can be.
Mia Khalifa was born to a Lebanese Catholic family and moved to the United States in 2000. Her pornographic career began with one of her customers asking her if she had ever considered doing pornography.
After discovering that she had been doing porn, Mia’s family disowned her. They stopped talking to her and had publicly stated that they dissociate themselves from her actions. Her parents also added that her actions did not reflect her family’s beliefs, upbringing, or Lebanese roots.
They hoped for her to “come back to her senses”, for her image did not honor her family or homeland.
In another statement, her parents said that they were probably paying the price of living away from their homeland. According to them, their children had to adapt to a society that did not resemble their culture, traditions, and values.
Petition For Donald Trump
Around the period when Donald Trump became the president-elect of the United States in 2016, a petition appeared on Change.org, which asked Trump to appoint Mia Khalifa as the US ambassador to Saudi Arabia.
This was obviously satire, mainly because the Saudi government would probably execute the pornstar as soon as they can get their hands on her. The Change.org petition reads:
“Mia Khalifa has a proven track record of bringing people together regardless of cultural background for the betterment of our country and international community. She will be a great leader representing us in the middle east as well as a symbol of the melting pot that is America.”
We’re pretty sure this was just satire. Mia has always been surrounded by fans and haters in large numbers.
