By the end of auditioning, the partners narrowed their search down to ten girls, including the members that finally become t. Both Lena and Julia knew each other before the auditions. Thus, in late , year-old Julia Volkova was added to the group to complete the duo. She also started recording not long after Lena's "Yugoslavia" demo was finished. According to Katina, Shapovalov was inspired to create the duo after the release of the Swedish film Show Me Love which focused on the romance between two school girls.
Over the next year, Katina and Volkova recorded songs with their producers. Voitinskij left the project, and Shapovalov decided to sign Elena Kiper as co-producer and co-writer for their debut album. Trevor Horn went on to write t. While working with Shapovalov, the group was "controlled" by him and it was reported that he was "strict" while in the process of the album.
It was not physically and formally released until December The song describes the turmoil in a girl's soul because she is in love with another girl, but is afraid, as society frowns upon this. She asks her parents for forgiveness. Elena Kiper has been credited with the song, explaining that the idea came to her when she fell asleep at her dentist's office and had a dream in which she kissed another woman.
Their first album, Po Vstrechnoy was released on 21 May The studio album proved to be a huge success in Europe, selling over 2. The group went on tour in , where their routines were described as "precise" and featured routines where the girls had to strip. The album peaked inside the top twenty in the majority of European and Western countries, and to date has sold over 7 million copies worldwide. The music video caused controversy worldwide, due to the members, who were both 14 at the time of the video's production, kissing behind a fence.
Some believed the video promoted lesbianism and pedophilia. Many musical journalists, publications and music critics had branded the group's music as "paedophilic pop". However, both of their proposed concerts in the UK were cancelled due to poor ticket sales. Fuck the war! The "Fuck the War! They still wrote the term on Jimmy Kimmel's hand. Though not as popular as their debut single, it managed to have success in most record charts.
Also in May , Shapovalovo was arrested after arranging filming for the group's music video " Show Me Love " in Moscow's Red Square despite his application for filming being refused. The footage that was recorded was later used for a music video for the song "Show Me Love",  despite the song not being released in any country other than Poland.
The group then released their third single " 30 Minutes ". It was released as an official single in the UK. The fourth single off the album " How Soon Is Now? In May , t. The group's record label, Universal Music Russia, were originally against the group's participation saying that the Eurovision contest was for "young artists" and said "artists of Tatu's level will not get much out of the participation in it, We [Universal] would much rather prefer the group to work on their new album, and not to participate in contests for rising stars [ The same month, the group postponed their German promo tour due to a late invitation to the MTV Movie Awards , where they performed.
On 26 September , the group released a remix compilation, titled Remixes. In November , the CD was released in Russia, with two new tracks and videos. The DVD compilation Screaming for More was released on 24 November , featuring music videos and behind-the-scenes.
Anatomy of t. The documentary revealed that the girls were not lesbians,  and chronicled the group as they took part in Eurovision earlier in the year. In early , t.
In the months before the split, t. The show followed the group as they were recording their second album, to little success, with their producer Ivan Shapovalov. The documentary aired on Russian television from January to March There were many rumors around the split until the show aired, which depicted the group leaving due to a lack of interest and care from their producer.
They also claimed the quality of the music being produced was too low, and that Shapovalov was only interested in creating scandals. Volkova stated, "He [Ivan] spends his time thinking up scandals instead of planning our artistic work. I'm sure our fans would rather hear new songs and new albums than new scandals. We wanted people to understand them and not judge them. That they are as free as anyone else. However, she became pregnant soon thereafter, and recording was delayed.
Volkova soon joined Katina and previous producer Sergio Galoyan in the studio. The group was backed by their record label, Universal Music International , in finding adequate songs and production to release a new album. The group released their second English album on 5 October titled Dangerous and Moving.
The album did not match its previous English album in terms of success, but still managed to sell over 2. The second single was " Friend or Foe ". Soon after the video was released, the group's management replaced drummer Roman Ratej with Steve "Boomstick" Wilson, and appointed a new bassist, Domen Vajevec.
On 25 March , t. On 17 April , t. Expedition , which was broadcast on the Russian music channel Muz TV. It chronicled the release of their second album, and the recording of the video for their third single, " Gomenasai ", which was released during the airing of the show.
The video, as well as the actual song, is quite a departure from t. On 21 November , the region of the Komi Republic in Russia filed a lawsuit against t.
Leonid Vakuev, a human rights representative for the Komi Republic, interpreted the song as being directed towards disabled people and cited words written in the booklet for the album, which said: "[Lyudi Invalidy] do not know what it means to be a human being.
They are fakes inside the human form. Katina said, "Of course, we meant moral invalids, people who do not have [a] soul and human feelings. In , Russian politician Aleksey Mitrofanov proposed t. On 17 May , t. This is not true! It was the group's first release since leaving Universal. The EP was released on 8 May and featured multimedia content including music, video, ringtones and wallpapers.
The EP featured a poster which advertised that date, as well as a coupon redeemable for a discount on the album that expired on 30 June However, the release schedule abruptly stalled on 5 June , when t. The duo returned to work in late August, when it was reported that t.
The name change reflected sarcastic comments about the state of the Russian music business made by Volkova and Katina in an interview with Moscow's Time Out Magazine. The press release disappeared from the site shortly afterward, only to re-appear on 8 October with a change made to the cover art where there was once the face of a smiling astronaut on the original design, a black square now appeared.
On 15 October, t. The album also went on pre-sale at the official t. The songs were also made available internationally through the iTunes digital music store. Upon its release, it became apparent that the album essentially had two covers the astronaut cover was a slipcase, while the original design used for "Upravleniye Otbrosami" appeared inside.
The black square from the press release had been hiding a Mars scene. On 23 October, t. They were also the subjects of an ongoing mini- reality series on the website Russia. On 21 October "Vesyolye Ulybki" was released internationally on online music stores. In March , a statement was released on the duo's site and MySpace stating that the duo will no longer be a "full-time" project and that Katina and Volkova were working on solo projects.
The album's single " Snegopady " was eventually released, along with its music video. The girls performed a special concert at the Eurovision Song Contest on 10 May. They were also included as an interval act on the 12th at the first semi finals, performing Not Gonna Get Us with the Russian Army Choir.
On 13 July, the group released their single " Snowfalls ". The song was released digitally worldwide, along with its music video. The album did not sell very well, and was reported to have only sold over copies in the United States, as of December The third single off the album was "Sparks", which was the English version of "". It was released in Brazil and on t. The winning mixes would be included on an upcoming remix album. Julia made headlines in Russia with an interview where she expressed her opinion on Lena's solo career, "She [Lena] has the right to do it [sing t.
If you do a solo career, it means that you do your own work. Her stuff, that she makes, I think, is silly and very soon her career will wither away and disappear.
Of course I got upset. But I want to tell everybody that I have a completely opposite attitude towards the whole situation, Julia's project included. I believe she's a very talented person and I sincerely hope that she'll be successful in all the things she plans. In July, Lena made an appearance on a radio station where she was asked about the future of the duo. Lena responded by saying, "Life has changed a lot.
Julia and I are working on our projects now. I, for one, will be traveling to Los Angeles this Saturday, where I will keep working on my album. And I'm preparing a big show in San Francisco in September, so now we are not planning to reform t.
Now we really want to concentrate only on our own projects. At the end of March , t. Due to conflicts between the girls, and them both wanting to pursue solo careers, the duo was officially announced as disbanded.
They finalised the duo's discography with a double remix album for Waste Management. The management thanked fans for their loyalty over the past twelve years of the duo's history. After the split, the group decided to focus on their solo careers, both musically and in film. The "10th Year Anniversary Gold Edition" featured all new artwork, a never-before-released song from the sessions, " A Simple Motion ", a brand new remix of "All The Things She Said" from producer Fernando Garibay, in addition to newly mastered songs.
On 24 October , Cherrytree Records released the official track listing for the album; it was a note addressed to fans handwritten and signed by Julia and Lena themselves. The album was released on 12 November It was their first performance together in three years. The duo t. They also appeared in radio and on another television show before.

We have very different lives in different countries now. We are not in a fight though. Lena also stated that "The t.
Katina also stated that her solo career was the number one goal at that time and if t. On 27 September t. Shortly thereafter they wore their schoolgirls outfits from their first album again for a Snickers Japanese advertisement. The duo performed before the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony in Sochi ,   along with piano virtuoso Denis Matsuev and opera soprano Anna Netrebko , who also performed the Olympic anthem.
On 17 February , Katina posted a video message on her official YouTube channel stating that she would no longer be working with Yulia and that t. She also criticized Katina's "meaning" behind the video and confirmed that they would be shooting the video for the new single. She stated that despite "reasons of severe trepidation on the part of Lena about [Volkova] and [her] behavior," collaboration between the two was possible, referring to the release of their new single as well as their music video.
In the short film "Together Apart" the duo were portrayed as cupids.
Russian pop duo Tatu have combined catchy pop and teen lesbianism to scale the charts worldwide. But is their success a triumph of marketing, an indicator of growing tolerance or, perhaps, something far more sinister. Neil McCormick ttau. Everybody knows everybody. In America, they don't even know their neighbour.
If you want some salt or sugar, you go to the store. In Moscow, we go next door. It ses a tatu Monday morning as Lena delivers this eulogy in the petulant tones of someone defending the indefensible.
The last remains of crusty snow still cling to patches of frozen ground. Like teenage girls all over the world, Tatu have opted for glamour over practicality. In thin trousers, skimpy wex and too much make-up, they project a kind of military hooker look. It is easy to imagine their mothers screaming at them, "You're not going out dressed like that!
I have to say, this is the surliest, most uncooperative ses bad-tempered photo shoot I have ever witnessed. The girls won't sit here.
They won't stand there. Ask them to look one way, they look the other. They keep telling the photographer to sexx faster. You want more? No more! A couple of fans make the mistake of asking for autographs, only to be waved away by the girls, snapping "Nyet! Beatta, a scandalously unhelpful blonde from the management company, displays her fixed grin to best "what can I tell you? Russia is not noted for its contribution to popular music, yet these two bolshy teenagers are one of the biggest sex sensations on the planet.
Their debut international single All the Things She Said was a blast of pure pop adrenaline. With the original Russian recording dramatically souped up and sex with English lyrics by British producer Trevor Horn, it was a near-hysterical, rhythmically compulsive, irresistibly catchy paean to forbidden Sapphic love delivered with all the passion and hormonal confusion of adolescence.
The video, directed by Tatu's manager and mastermind, Ivan Shapovalov, deliberately courted controversy by portraying Tatu as nubile schoolgirls engaging in passionate embraces while being watched from tatu a wire fence by a disapproving crowd of stony-faced adults.
The revelation that the tstu were only 16 when it was filmed added to the aura of salaciousness. Propelled by tabloid and talk-show accusations that they are perverted or pandering to paedophiles, the single tat a top hit in 16 countries including the all-important US market and number one ratu Australia, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Holland and the UK. Sex far as the general public is concerned, there seems to be only one burning question about Tatu: are they really lesbians?
Of course we are, insist the girls. Of course they're not, insist the tabloids, which have spent a small fortune encouraging a sorry parade of pimply Russian boys to out them as tau. They are not our friends and if they were, they are not our friends any more.
They want to say, 'Oh, Lena was a virgin and we had sex', 'Julia goes attu all the boys'. Why would they want to tell stories like that? Why do people care? We don't care! It does not make us feel bad because we know the truth. When they've been interviewed on talkshows and asked, 'Are you really lesbians?
And the same thing tatu paedophilia. Here, they were just like any other teenybopper pop group with a good gimmick. While they may have been uncontroversial at home, Tatu's success abroad has led to native criticism.
The growth in sex tourism the beautiful prostitutes of Moscow are hard to tatk, hanging on the arms of foreign businessmen in hotel lobbies and the organised export of prostitutes to the West are becoming issues of sdx concern in Russia.
Vira Lekerava, MP, from the Committee of Youth and Women, tried unsuccessfully to have Shapovalov prosecuted, declaring, "We want to protect the souls of our children from the criminality of adults and their perversions". But I say Gagarin and Pushkin are long dead and look what is in Russia's shop window to the world right now: the shameful war and human rights violations in Chechnya; the Russian mafia; unstoppable, huge corruption.
Tatu is actually nothing compared with other terrifying aspects of Russian life. Troitsky has one major quibble with the Tatu controversy, however. The girls are per cent manipulated by Ivan. I've been srx a couple of talkshows with them sxe behind the stage they ssex to Ivan whenever they are asked non-elementary questions. He always tell them what to say, what to do, how sex behave and so on.
It's exactly taatu same as with all those international boy and girl bands. Most Western manufactured pop acts, however, go out of their way to avoid controversy and co-operate pliantly with the media. Tatu are neither bland nor particularly helpful. In a dull hotel suite, the tatk submit to more photographs. Continuing to ignore the photographer's esx, they proceed to do exactly what they want — or what someone has told them to do — clambering over one another in stiff approximations of pornography, exuding all the zex desire of a pair of blow-up dolls.
Their bored body language and blank faces suggest lesbianism is an act they have grown rather tired of, but off-camera their physical closeness is apparent. They frequently hold hands, lean into one another, whisper asides and have all the easy intimacy you might expect from, well, a couple of regular teenage girl friends. Although Julia is reportedly the duo's dominant character and chief mischief-maker, since Tatu have gone global, Lena's fluent English has pushed her to the fore.
She somewhat boldly asserts that Tatu represent "a new kind of teenager who is open to experience. It is not one type of sex, not one kind of experience, it is just to be who you are".
But then the question of who Tatu really are remains. Their surly behaviour inevitably begins to grate and one wonders how much of the real person it represents.
Is success turning them into spoilt little divas or are they simply sticking to the script prepared for them by their manager, Shapovalov? Because while they may share the same celebrity tatu as their Western pop counterparts fame and fortune at any costthey are certainly not the usual breathless products of wex school.
Lena and Julia are rather more studious than their image might imply. Julia, an only child sec middle-class parents with a musical background, is a classically trained taut who studied singing and piano at Moscow State Music School. Lena, the youngest of three, also hails from a musical family her father, Sergey Katin, is a successful songwriter and well-known musician. Lena is studying for a psychology degree in her spare time, following courses at a Moscow university.
It is hard tatu imagine any of the Spice Girls doing likewise. They are defensive about the man to whom most observers ascribe Tatu's prurient image. He cares about us and we care about him. Despite this endorsement, Shapovalov has been portrayed as a sinister figure in the West, a former child psychologist and advertising filmmaker who allegedly got the idea for Tatu while perusing internet porn sites. The name is an abbreviation of the Russian phrase "tadyevushka lubit tu" which translates as "this girl loves that one".
Shapovalov took a topsy-turvy approach to the music business. Bored with advertising, in he decided to move into making music videos. But he considered the standard of Russian pop music to be so poor that he turned down all work offered to ttatu and sex instead to assemble his own group. Starting with video concepts, he put together a team of ssex and producers tatu write the material, and finally began auditioning. Lena tatj Sex who had previously sung together in a children's group, Neposedy attended a casting with more than other hopefuls.
When they signed up to Shapovalov's sex "underage sex project", they were both just 14 years old. In person, the musical provocateur does not particularly conform to stereotypes of either pornographer or svengali. He is a boyishly handsome, softly spoken man of 36, who couches everything in philosophical terms, often with the impenetrability of Zen aphorisms.
It should be noted, however, that his English is not particularly good sex my Russian is non-existentso communication involves a quite tortuous struggle peppered with comical mispronunciations, false starts and repetition. The following are heavily edited highlights. We have not perfect taut in our life and we have to change the aims. Fear is the main reason of all problems of mankind.
You have to choose a line of conflict and for me this line is between love and fear. This is Tatu. Love and fear. Tatu have a tatu of bad for society but sometimes we see wex and think it is black. The first three Tatu singles ses with videos and a mini-album were recorded and released independently between September and Maycatapulting the duo to local stardom.
They were signed by Universal Music Russia in May, releasing their already recorded debut album the ssx month. It soldcopies, an astonishing number in a country where piracy is estimated to account for some 95 per sex of all sales there are estimated to be more than four million illegal copies of the Tatu album in circulation.
Its success quickly attracted the attention of Universal's international division, which commenced work on an English language version of the album in August According to Artemy Troitsky, it was only at this point that the girls began to receive a proportion of the profits. A 95 to five per cent split is not ssx he says.
Now because I don't need it. Russia's indigenous music scene is highly active, with artists emulating all the musical trends of yatu West. Although usually lacking something in terms of state-of-the-art production, home-grown tatu are generally preferred tattu their international counterparts. Txtu Tatu are the first to have attracted attention in the xex world, peddling teen pop back to the West by adding a new twist to the formula.
For some it remains a twist too far. Feeling criteria we can't describe in law, because it is only eye to eye.
