Internet porn may have killed the porn star, but Mia Khalifa (also known as Mia Callista) can defiantly count herself a porn star in the age of the Internet. In 2015, the Lebanese-born stunner became a celebrity when she was declared the most-searched porn star on perhaps the most popular adult entertainment website, Pornhub. But it wasn’t her carnal skills that drove her web views. Rather it was criticism she received from Lebanese pundits and newspapers as well as death threats from Isis that piqued a digital curiosity about Khalifa. The latter’s reaction would also inspire Khalifa’s early retirement from the porn industry. "Looking back on it I don't know what I was thinking ...” she told former bike racing champion Lance Armstrong in a podcast interview. “I was 21 and dumb."Mia moved to Montgomery County, Maryland from Beirut at the age of 10. After graduating from the University of Texas at El Paso with a degree in art history Khalifa moved to Miami. While working as a bartender and model, Khalifa was asked if she was interested in doing porno films. She came to national attention after doing a sex scene for the film company BangBros while wearing a hijab. The outrage the scene caused, while miring Khalifa in controversy, also instantly turned her into the most searched adult performer on Pornhub. Although she announced her exit from the porn industry in 2016, Khalifa is still a media presence. She cohosted a Complex web series about sports called Out of Bounds. She’s done live-streamed videos for Twitch TV and performs as a webcam model. But the mark she made in adult entertainment still resonates. One clear example is when electro-pop duo Timeflies released a musical ode to the beauty called “Mia Khalifa." Many may read deeply into Khalifa’s former career choice. But for the amply bosomed star it was a simple reason. “I just wanted to let loose,” she told the Daily Star, “and rebel a little bit.’
