    05/19/03 Tatu's Eurovision performance

    I’ve just noticed that there’s wrong information in Elizabeth’s post (from Australia) about TATU’s performance in Riga.

    It will indeed take place on the 24th of May, but voting on the site to which link is provided has no sense. The only way to help TATU is to tune to your major TV-channel in Europe (BBC in UK, France 3 in France, Ned 2 in the Netherlands, ARD in Germany, TVE in Spain, STV 1 in Sweden, etc) on the 24th (Saturday) at 21.00 CET (20.00 in UK) and watch the show.

    TATU will have a start position 11. The whole show will not take more than 1.5 hours, after which the phone lines will be open for 5 minutes only. Each country’s TV will announce special phone numbers for each participant. To help TATU we should make a call (or send SMS in some countries) for song number 11 (TATU).

    We all can help TATU to win this year if we tune to Eurovision contest on the 24th of May at 21.00 CET to watch for TATU’s performance, then wait about 1 hour more till the televoting starts and vote for TATU. Seeing TATU win is worth this time at your television!

    And remember: voting on internet is useless, only phone calls on the 24th count!!!

    05/15/03 t.A.T.u. vote for Tatu to win

    As you all know, Tatu are representing Russia in the Eurovision Song Contest this year, but in order to win, each country must be voted for. So vote for Tatu to win, just go to here, click on Number 11, Russia and click "Evaluate performer" (next to the pic of Tatu) then give them a 10. They are in the lead at the moment but it is very close so they need more votes. You can only vote once a day I think, so there's no real point trying to vote a million times as it won't work. Remember the Eurovision Song Contest is on May 24th so vote before then and tune in to see them perform. Thanks guys

    03/08/03 Report by AddictedToTatu about "T.A.T.U.'s 5th Americanski Television Appearance on MAD-TV"

    We have completed the imaging of T.A.T.U.'s 5th Americanski television appearance on MAD-TV (Air Date: March 8, 2003 at 11:53 PM ET). The girls performed "All The Things She Said" and were forbidden to kiss! This was probably the first time that their lips were no even allowed to touch. We were very surprised, since MAD-TV is always extremely liberal in their subject matter, perhaps this is why the girls refused to come out for a second time. There are approximately 50 photos in this set, really great one's of Yulia and Elena towards the middle of the set. However, we are disappointed in the fact that there where blue-white strobe lights behind the girls and this gives the photos a "cool" appearance which does not correctly match proper skin tones. We always prefer "warm" backgrounds for proper color and skin tone. However, we think that everyone will find something to enjoy in this set.

    03/01/03 Tatu's 3rd Americanski Television Appearance on the Craig Kilborn Show

    Here are the 48 full-size TatuCam photos from this morning's Craig Kilborn Show! The girls performed "All The Things That She Said" at 1:30 AM Eastern time in their 3rd Americanski television appearance. There were 3 separate shots of the girls kissing and the cutaways took long enough for you to see them even though the shots were brief. Yulia and Elena performed in new costumes, red plaid skirts - it's a far better look for them. :-) In this case our photographs were not taken "live", but rather from videotape. It seems from the times that these select appearances are being chosen that the girls are marketing themselves more as an adult pop group rather than a teen pop group.

    MTV's TRL appearance will be on Monday, March 3rd between 4 and 5 PM Eastern.

    03/01/03 tatu news from New Zealand

    Tatu have made it to No. 1 in New Zealand in the Coca Cola AWIA charts last night with "All The Things She Said". On the TV program they screen the video clips for the songs and so far they have been screening the one containing the kissing scenes. I have a couple of friends who work in the record industry and they said that the censors were considering cutting the clip altogether when it got to No.1. They didn't do this and still played the clip, however, they have cut out all the scenes in which the girls get close or kiss, replacing it with repeated material from the rest of the clip. This has resulted in some of the singing being out of sinc from the soundtrack.

    03/01/03 INTERNATIONAL LESBIAN KISS DAY! Saturday 3rd May

    Citizens of the world:

    Please protest against the persistent censorship, now in the US as well as the UK, of the kiss between Lena and Yulia of the Russian pop duo, t.A.T.u. during their television performances of their hit single, All The Things She Said.

    This matters especially to gay youth all over the world who are struggling for social acceptance and against discrimination and bigotry.

    Here is what you can do:

    1. Sign the petition at here

    2. Participate in a public lesbian kissing event on the day! If you are not a lesbian, you can attend and give the kissers moral support. If you are, you could enter a kissathon competition, with a prize for the longest kiss on the lips; or you could get sponsored to kiss in the most outrageous public place you can think of, and earn some 'smackers' for your fave cause at the same time! C'mon, I'm allowed one feeble pun.

    3. Spread the word! If you belong to a gay organisation, please ask them to send press releases everywhere. Please do the same if you can, and quote the petition URL. Copy and paste this email to your local and national press and everybody you can think of.

    03/01/03 open letter by T. Nguyen to NBC

    Hello, my name is T. Nguyen.

    I'm writing to complain about the censorship during the kissing portion of T.A.T.U.'s performance on the Late Show with Jay Leno on Tuesday, February 25th.

    I'm sure you're well aware of the incident that I'm speaking of. During T.A.T.U.'s song, as typical of their routine they started kissing. The camera was pulled away and focused on the guitarist for the entire duration of the kiss in an obvious attempt to censor it.

    It is insulting to me and the entire homosexual community that NBC embraces this obvious double standard. The fact that the Late Show is on public television is no excuse when programs like Joe Millionaire, which depicts far more graphic heterosexual activities, are broadcasted in primetime. It is a slap in the face that you refuse to show a simple kiss for the fact that it is homosexual.

    Additionally this censorship is fundamentally insulting to me as a muscian. The kiss is as much a part of their song as the lyrics are, being that the song concerns the very homosexual image that Lena and Yulia promote. Censoring their kiss is the same as cutting out non explicit lines in their song.

    In protest of this, I from this point forward refuse to watch NBC until an apology is issued to both T.A.T.U. and to the gay community as a whole. I am encouraging as many people as I can to follow this example. While I'm not naive enough to think that a lone boycott would have even the slightest effect upon your network, I suspect that I am not alone in my anger towards this disrespect of both homosexuality and T.A.T.U.

    Thank You for your time.

    Author: T. Nguyen.

    02/27/03 Jimmy Kimmel Show - 2nd Americanski Television Appearance

    t.A.T.u. appeared this morning on the Jimmy Kimmel Show. Everyone poked fun at NBC and the girls were told that "anything goes" ... "we'll broadcast any crap" on ABC! Yulia didn't understand, but she laughed gleefully when Elena explained it to her. The interview and quips came first, followed by the concert. We took 17 photos, but we could post many more. I did not take a lot of concert photos since the choreography was the same as last night and the girls were bathed in blue-with spotlights which usually don't produce a good effect. However, I found that the blue-white lighting here worked very well, so I may go back to the videotape and get some more.

    02/26/03 the Comment on last night's show featuring t.A.T.u. as the performing act.

    I would like to make a comment on last night's show featuring t.A.T.u. as the performing act. As fan's of the group and of the show we were very much looking forward to seeing them perform. I can't tell you how disappointed we were that the Tonight Show would edit out the 'kiss'. Although it was okay by you to show Arsenio Hall running up and planting one on Jay? I have since discovered that a representative of the show had talked to the girls before their performance and asked them not to kiss. This is part of their performance, it is part of that particular song. My question to you would be this... If the group members were a male and female performer singing a similar song about wanting to be free to be together..etc... and then kissing during the instrumental section of the song would you have edited that part out too? I think your answer to that question would have to be no. By answering no do you realize that this is a blatant act of discrimination? Do you realize that this is encouraging those who think you should be judged by who you love, encouraging those who commit crimes of hate against those who live their lives differently from themselves. Something I thought I would never see on the Tonight Show! NBC , the producers at the Tonight Show and Jay Leno, you should all be ashamed of yourselves.

    02/26/03 Kiss cut out of Jay Leno

    Creating yet another scandal, t.A.T.u.'s kiss was cut out of Jay Leno's Tonight Show on NBC. Yulia and Lena said, on JoJo's 9 @ 9 on KIIS FM, that only minutes before their performance, they were asked not to kiss by a representative of The Tonight Show, yet they replied saying that they would see how they felt when the time came. And, they felt like kissing. Lena expressed her feelings on the situation by saying "It is F*ck!"(referring to their censored kiss.)

    02/18/03 Madeley CAN sue and prosecute to get tATu banned

    Steve Bevis is just plain wrong. Under what will be the Sexual Offences Act 2003, any individual can bring a civil action or a private prosecution to ban any work of art, music or photography, by claiming that it incites underage sex, or involves the 'commercial sexual exploitation of a child' - and this law defines a child as a person aged under 16. Whether the judge agrees that it's incitement or exploitation is another matter, but that is what Madeley's lawyers will argue.
    I personally saw and heard Richard Madeley say on live television that he is campaigning to get the ATTSS video removed from the shelves in the shops - and the video is on the CD with both the album and the single. That's how I found about tATu in the first place! That is not the expression of one person's point of view. That is an attempt by one person to force his point of view on to everybody else.
    And if the BBC also censors kissing between males, that makes them even more homophobic than I thought they were!

    02/17/03 t.A.T.u. In The UK - Clearing Up A Few Things

    - Richard Madeley is an individual and therefore could not set out to try and take t.A.T.u. to court to ban t.A.T.u. CDs - he was merely expressing an opinion, which is what t.A.T.u. are about - freedom of speech and expression to be who you are and say what you think. The UK tabloids have made up a lot of rubbish about it, which people are wrongly believing.
    - The BBC never banned t.A.T.u.'s video. They performed "ATTSS" in Italy for "Top Of The Pops" Italy. If a live performance is available, Top Of The Pops never show the video. However, they did edit the lesbian kiss, replacing it with two people in the audience - a heterosexual couple - kissing. They have never shown any gay kiss, between either two men or two women.
    - ITV were told off for showing Christina Aguilera in her "Dirrty" outfits, and so made sure that they never showed anything parents might not want children to see. This is: any sexual content of any nature (kissing, even between heterosexual couples) and any provocative dancing (like Christina Aguilera, etc.). They showed t.A.T.u. performing at MTV Europe and edited out the kiss, but showed them hugging.
    - Neither MTV or The Box or other UK TV stations have edited the kissing scenes in the "ATTSS" video.

    Hope this helps clear some things up! :)

    02/16/03 tATu fans of the world unite!


    First off, I want to clear up the confusion over what's been banned and what hasn't - and more to the point, what WILL be banned if we don't resist..... Richard Madeley has threatened to use (what might become) new censorship laws to get the works of tATu permanently removed from the shelves in UK shops, by a court order. But they are not laws yet - Parliament has yet to pass them, and if the petition gets enough sigs, it might persuade the law-makers to think again. Petition is here

    UK fans: We also need our own real-life fan club to organise the resistance in other ways, too. Please go to here.

    Clarification: nobody ever said tATu themselves had been banned - yet. It's the ATTSS video that has been banned by Top of the Pops and CD:UK - and they are too spineless to show the girls kissing in their stage performance. They show gay males and hetero singers / dancers kissing and fondling, so that's blatant anti-lesbian discrimination by the BBC.

    Finally, I want to say a big thank you to all the fantastic ppl who have worked damn hard on the petition, and thanks to the managers of this site for helping me and for their daily dedication to the best and boldest band in the world.

    Hey TATU Fans ! After TATU had been Baned in UK they need your help.
    You can read and sign petition here

    Spread the word! Spread the word!

    The petition will eventually be submitted to Richard and Judy, the British TV presenters who started the campaign to ban Tatu, but rest assured, the BBC and every other organisation that bans Tatu's works will be informed every time the number of signatures is worth telling them about (e.g. 10,000, 50,000, 100,000, and so on).

    Let's go for a cool million; it can be achieved on the Internet!

    You are more than welcome to print the petition and collect offline signatures, but PLEASE, this is very totally absolutely awesomely important:

    Tell people who sign the offline petition NOT to sign the online one, and vice-versa.

    Don't use spam software to enter multiple fake signatures - it won't work anyway.

    Don't change the wording; if you do, your signatories will be signing a different petition and their signatures will not count as part of this one.

    Thanks for your support!

    Do you know the song "Yugoslavia"? It's a song that Lena and Yulia sang when they were very young. On internet it's very rare to find, but on Crazywave's t.A.T.u. Site you can find it. The url for downloads page , here you can find a demo version of Yugoslavia. The quality isn't really good, but there is only this version on internet. Hope you'll enjoy it! :-) I've another news that could be interesting! After more than two months, t.A.T.u.'s video of "Not Gonna Get Us" is still on the first third places of Mtv Italy's TRL!! Sometimes it's first, other times it's second or third... Yesterday it was second! Also t.A.T.u. debut on position #4 in single charts in Italy with their brand new single "Not Gonna Get Us"!!!

    01/28/03 t.A.T.u. Will Stay In Moscow

    The Tatu girls are preparing to record their second Russian album, and give interviews. In the process of getting ready for a vocal session, Lena and Julia consulted a doctor. The specialists discovered that Julia had laryngitis, which, in their opinion, could affect Julia's vocal quality, and advised her to go through therapy. The doctors suggested that Julia might need an operation, and a brief recovery period, after which the girls would immediately resume the work on their second album. All the material is ready. The rumors about the operation really unnerved the journalists and the fans, now they don't have to worry. There will be no surgery, but Julia will undergo a conservative therapy, after which she'll be able to scream as before. Due to the medical observations, Tatu cancelled two promo visits to the UK and Germany. But Julia, like a professional vocalist, has decided to listen to the doctors' instructions and advice. Now she feels much better, and is ready to record

    01/21/03 Next Single in Italy "Show Me Love" ?

    Yesterday I e-mailed a man from Universal Music (Italy), and I asked him why the single "Not Gonna Get Us" had come out in stores two months after radio and television airplay. He told me that in doing so, the album sales would have already grown. In fact, it has sealed more than 100,000 copies. But the most important news is that when I asked him when the next single, 30 Minutes, would be out, he told me that the next single will PROBABLY be Show Me Love, but that there is no date yet. That's all. Sorry for my little english.

    01/11/03 News from New Jersey, USA

    I'm a tatu fan from New Jersey. I'm emailing you to inform you that tatu's single is blowing up on the radio over here in the US. Last week, I was listening to z100 and "All the Things She Said" came on and me and my cousin (she's a tatu fan as well) started to freak out. We've been fans for over a year and we're so surprised to finally hear tatu on the radio. And if you didn't already know, z100 is the most listened to radio station, not only in the tri-state area (New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut) but through out the entire world. I was even more surprised when I tuned in a few days later and they were on z100's Interactive 9 @ 9, z100's daily countdown of most requested songs, and they were #4! The next night they climbed a spot to #3! Ever since I've been hearing everyone singing the chorus...probably because that's the only part they know hehe :)

My english is not so good, but I'd like to tell you something about the two russian girls in Croatia. I'm a journalist and at the end of september I wrote the first article (report) in Croatia about Tatu (the review Regina), a presentation and a comment about their performance in Verona (Italy) at the Festivalbar. In Croatia their CD was in stores in the second part of october, but just now, in december, All The Things She Said has became a hit. Now it's transmetted in all the most important radio stations in Croatia and enterd the Top 10 songs. I'm affraid, but I don't see the video yet in the tv.

    TATU's lesbian kiss at the Festivalbar ends in the viewfinder of the associations for protection of the rights of minors. After a series of controversies, Italia Uno (the festivalbar's channel) has shown the kiss between the two members of the group during the final evening of the program in Verona. Festivalbar has shown the kiss on TV but not at the protected hours (after 11 PM). The scene has provoked "disdain, incredulity and disagreement" from Moige's president Maria Rita Munizzi, who said, "Once again a song manifestation for a hidden proselyte and propaganda of the world gay on our sons".

    8/16/2002 TATU return from Bulgaria.

    After the cancellation of Tatu's concert in the Bulgarian City Plovdive two months ago, Tatu's popularity in Bulgaria grew even more. Two months ago the Pope destroyed the plans for thousands of Bulgarian fans - the concert was forbidden only 2 hours before it was to begin! But nothing could stop them now in Varne on August 10. It is necessary to add that in Bulgaria, Tatu are real heroes. Yulia and Lena cannot go out in public without protection, because everybody knows and loves them. As soon as the girls went outside of their hotel, they were immediately surrounded with a crowd of fans who were armed with posters and CD's. TATU would love to give out autographs for another week, but they decided to return to Moscow

They're truly amazing and I really hope they make it big in the US - I will certainly be buying their CD when it becomes available! That said, I would like to personally apologize for some of my fellow farkers. Unfortunately, when a website is as big as is, you get a lot of people that can be "REAL JERKS," but you also get a lot of people that are just the opposite - and I assure you that for every jerk from that came here there were 3 decent and good people that appreciated Tatu and their music.

    8/03/2002 Romanian stars adore T.A.T.U.

    T.A.T.U. obtains more and more fans in Romania. Even some of the most important Romanian stars think that T.A.T.U. is a great pop group. One of them, Andrei Gheorghe, person with great musical knowledge, expressed directly his opinion about the Russian band. In a national magazine, he declared: "I liked them very much since I have listened to them for the first time. I think that, in maximum five years, the Russian music will explode. The Russians have a great capacity to produce songs and they have fresh ideas. I think Ivan Shapovalov is a great manager. It is absolutely incredible what this guy does. He has the mind of a genius."
    Andrei Gheorghe confirmed his simpathy for the Russian pop group when, at his show, called "13-14", he announced that the subject of the day was "Tatu" and he put many of the girls' songs, in the English version.

    After conquering most of Europe, T.A.T.U.'s musical magic entered Romania. The song "Nas ne Dagonyat" could be heard at radio and it's video watched at T.V. since the beginning of month July,2002. A short time after that, the T.A.T.U. mania began to spread , "Nas ne Dagonyat" becoming the most requested song at all T.V. and radio channells. That's not all of it, T.A.T.U.'s album "200 km/h in the Wrong Lane" becoming the best selling album of the month and probably of the whole year. At most music channells, "Nas ne Dagonyat" and other T.A.T.U. songs can be heard about two or three times per hour. This seems to be only the beginning of the succes the Russian girls have in Romania, everybody awaiting news from them.

    8/01/2002 Get a Tatu tattoo at new salon

    Pop singer Dina and Tatu's Lena Katina and Yulya Volkova are set to open a tattoo salon near the Rechnoi Vokzal metro station. The idea occurred to them when the three girls met in the Millennium recording studio as Tatu was recording its new album and Dina her debut.

    "Our creative union does not imply that I'm a lesbian," Dina said. "And for them [Tatu], that's mostly a PR gimmick."

    Dina mastered the art of tattooing before she made her appearance on Moscow's pop stage, when she was living in her hometown of Nizhny Novgorod. The profession was her bread and butter back then.

    As for Tatu, they liked the idea just because the name of their band means "tattoo."

    As a start, the new salon will serve only Tatu fans and, later, if it proves to be a success, it will be open for everybody.

    "It's no trouble for me at all to tattoo a profile of Lena or Yulya on somebody's skin," Dina said. "If it works out, such tattoos will become our salon's specialty."

    07/16/2002 TATU are shooting the MOVIE!

    On July 15, the shooting of the documentary film had begun about the group TATU. This Film will have everything about what Tatu had not told anybody the last two years: The True Story about Lena Katina and Yulia Volkova, which was discussed only between them (Lena and Yulia). From the beginning of existence of the group, TATU wasn-t giving any interviews, they were not answering the frank questions and they were not telling about themselves. The fans were forced to make up (imagine/invent/fantasy) their own story about love between girls, and the journalists were forced to create rumors and hunt for the information. During the same time, TATU was shooting almost each day of their own lives on video in order to show it later for everybody how it was in reality. "The first frank interview of TATU and the exclusive archive materials will soon be joined into one film, which everybody will be able to see."

    07/15/2002 T.A.T.U in Poland. They are having the first places in local Music Charts.

    The popularity of girls has finally reached Poland too. They have gotten first places in local Music Charts, plus an invitation from the Glossy Magazines, and everything is as usual. For the group TATU, it was very pleasant news, and therefore Lena and Yulia have decided to make a "friendly visit" to Poland on July 10th. That means that in three days they will have conversations with 15 magazines and newspapers, will give interviews for 10 radio stations, will appear "ON AIR" of the same number of TV channels, will also not avoid all main internet portals, and will take part in two photo-sessions. After all this takes place, the Polish teenagers will start to learn the Russian language and use it to make confessions of love to girls. Exactly in such a manner the wave of interest in the Russian language and music have begun in Czech about half a year ago.

    07.10.2002 t.A.T.u. featured on MTV & MTV2 "You Hear It First" by Jon Wiederhorn

    Parents who were unsettled by Britney's sexual schoolgirl pout, queasy after seeing 3LW's new revealing outfits and red-faced upon hearing the naughty lyrics of Khia's "My Neck, My Back (Lick It)" might have a cerebral hemorrhage when they see the video for Tatu's "All the Things She Said."

    The clip depicts Julie Volkova and Lena Katina, the sensual 17- and 18-year-old members of Moscow's hot new girl-pop group, holding hands and kissing while a wall of throbbing electronic beats, spectral keyboards and buzzing guitar whirl around the groping gals.

    The song, like many from their upcoming U.S. debut album, is about the excitement, emotionality and self-consciousness of young lesbian love: "When they stop and stare don't worrying me/ 'Cause I'm feeling for her what she's feeling for me/ I can try to pretend, I can try to forget/ But it's driving me mad/ Going out of my head."

    "We are singing about our love. Love between girl and girl," said Katina, working with her limited command of English.

    For Tatu, talk is cheap. The visuals _ suggestive photos, performances in panties and tiny tank tops _ are what has helped the group sell over a million copies of their 2001 Russian album, 200 Po Vstrechnoy, which translates to 200 Kilometers an Hour in the Wrong Lane. Their racy image has been carefully crafted by the group's producer and manager, Ivan Shapovalov, who makes Lou Pearlman look downright virtuous. A former psychologist and advertising executive, Shapovalov glanced out at a sea of suggestive teen pop and experienced an epiphany. So he put together Tatu and tried injecting a stagnant genre with new forbidden fruits, pushing buttons and ruffling feathers, but stopping just short of being outright lewd.

    "Our producer is a very good psychologist, and that's why he can feel all the feelings that we have," Katina said.

    Katina, whose dad is a successful Russian musician and songwriter, grew up in Moscow, as did Volkova, an only child raised by a middle-class family. The two met in the children's pop group Neposedi. She and Katina were then contacted by Shapovalov, and led to the world of softcore lesbian pop.

    Of course, selling sex is nothing new. But there's some question whether Tatu actually ascribe to the sapphic lifestyle they project: While management has eagerly released titillating details to the press _ such as how the girls insist on a double bed in their hotel rooms _ none of the group's representatives will affirm that Volkova and Katina are the genuine article. And while the girls might love to kiss, they're not about to tell.

    07.03.2002 "200 km/h in the Wrong Lane"

    Feisty brunette Julia and soulful redhead Lena, two teenage girls from Moscow known as T.A.T.U., are the Russian equivalent of pop-meets-Prodigy.

    "People love us or hate us but nobody thinks nothing about us," says Lena Katina, the older of the striking singers. Tearing down walls of all sorts throughout the brave new world, T.A.T.U. became the most explosive and controversial act in Eastern Europe last year with the scandalous single "Ya Soshla S Uma" ("All The Things She Said"), the story of a love affair between two young girls, whose evocative video was named MTV Russia's Video of the Year. 200 km/h in the Wrong Lane, T.A.T.U.'s 2001 debut album Now T.A.T.U.'s tempestuous teens are readying to conquer America. Just don't expect very close friends and flirtatious Julia and Lena to tone down their bold, fearless sense of freedom.

    "Our songs are not silly," says Lena. "T.A.T.U. is more sincere, more honest about ourselves and others. We don't shape ourselves for the audience. In Russia, life is not polite. If we don't like something, we say we don't like it. If we don't agree, we say 'fuck you.'"

    Even T.A.T.U.'s pop electronica has an edge. That's what enticed esteemed producer Trevor Horn to work with T.A.T.U. on English-language versions of 200 km/h in the Wrong Lane to be released via Interscope Records worldwide this Fall. Horn, whose credits include membership in The Buggles ("Video Killed The Radio Star"), prog-rock's Yes and the acclaimed The Art Of Noise as well as producer for The Pet Shop Boys, Grace Jones, Seal, Simple Minds and Frankie Goes To Hollywood, compares T.A.T.U.'s sound not only to Prodigy but also a group he worked with in the '80s, Propaganda.

    In the end, however, T.A.T.U. is unlike any other in the East or the West. "Russians are not dark but we are not light either," says Julia Volkova. "We have a different view, maybe deeper, because life is more difficult in Russia."

    Julia and Lena had already known each other for several years while in another music group when they came together for T.A.T.U. two years ago. But that's where their commonality ends.

    Julia is an only child of middle-class parents; Lena, the youngest of three, is the daughter of a well-known musician/pop-songwriter father. "We love each other very much but Lena is totally different from me," says Julia, who has also acted in small films. "She doesn't like to party; I like to party. She's more quiet, reads a lot. I don't like reading." Yet the contrasts between sweet, dramatic Lena and energetic, in-your-face Julia complement each other in T.A.T.U.

    The video for "Not Gonna Get Us" (T.A.T.U.'s second Russian hit "Nas Ne Dagoniat") has Julia and Lena commandeering a huge fuel tanker, speeding across a snowy Siberian road past anyone who would stop them, triumphant. "T.A.T.U. is about saying what you feel, not what others expect," says Lena. "Be in love. Be yourself. We are."

    07.02.2002 Taty have "lost their mind" again but now in English.

    Taty shot the music video for the English version of the song "All The Things She Said" on July 1, 2002. Producer Ivan Shapovalov decided to keep the main parts of the Russian version of the video, but to reshoot the scenes where Yulia and Lena sing in English. In order to obtain the same background as the previous two-year-old video, the plastic brick wall, similar to old one, was built on the shooting scene of Moscow Mosfilm studio. Wet Yulia and Lena were placed behind the wall to sing the new English version of "All The Things She Said". It was easy for the technicians to make rain on the set, but it was very difficult for stylists, because the girls- looks had changed over the two-year period. But all problems were resolved, and as a result, Lena Katina and Yulia Volkova were able to make a trip back to the year 2000.

    06.21.2002 "Simple Motions" in English language.

    Recently the band "Taty" (pronounced tah-too) returned from the USA, where they have recorded a new song, "Simple Motions" in English. Lena and Yulia also gave an interview for the high rating TV program of American MTV: "TRL". The girls then left for a photo-session to one of the best known woman photographer, who has made thousands of photographs of different music stars for the covers of compact discs. It is necessary to note the makeup technicians on the shooting scene are also pretty famous. They repeatedly make up Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. Fortunately for "Taty-sheik" they did not put on the same amount of cosmetics usually seen on the faces of American stars. However, "Taty" got five hair-dos and the same number of makeovers in one day. Of course the girls did not forget about shopping. "Taty" had managed all this in just two days. Their new album "Taty" will be released in the States very soon, which was actual reason this entire trip was organized.

    Let us recall that very recently in Moscow, the presentation of the new clip to the song "Simple Motions" took place. The video came out shocking. During the entire video clip the girls are preoccupied with self-pleasuring, and the authors of the clip claim that this was completely not a game, but a properly fulfilled job. It is interesting, but at the same time strange that the parents of the girls were present at the presentation of the clip, who probably tolerate the absolute absence of complexes in their children. The visitors and deputies of the Gosduma, which in spite of constant threats to ban similar liberties, very tolerantly responded to "Simple Motions" playing on the screen. Some governor's even showed their admiration.

    It is necessary to note that "Taty-mania" is already a well-known phenomenon in Russia, whose consequences are not predicted. For example, during one of the "Taty" concerts, the public got so excited and hot from the view of young lesbians (or maybe just well pretending young actresses) that they began to throw down their own clothes and were almost ready for group pleasures. It seems, the management of the band knows on what to press: Teenage lust. It is clear that it creates popularity to the duet "Taty".

    05.22.2002. Concert of two lesbians did not make the Pope happy.

    The reason of the cancellation of the concert of group "Taty" in Bulgarian Plovdive on 22 May was the visit of Pope. As reported by press-attache of "Taty" Beta Ardeeva, the Pope happened to be in Plovdive exactly the same day, when "Taty" was scheduled to perform. Local authorities, after remembering the angry tirades of Pope in the address of Britney Spears and Madonna, decided not to risk. The minister of internal affairs of Bulgaria arrived at the conclusion that the concert of two underage lesbians does not gladden the Head of Catholic Church, and He forbade concert with the formulation the "safety measures nonobservance". "Taty" expressed regret that Pope did not get a chance to see their performance.
