Steve Morse of the Boston Globe spoke with Tom Calderone, an executive vice president with MTV, wondering what he know about whether the girls from t.A.T.u. were lesbian or not. “It’s hard to know what’s going on,” he said. “Every story you hear keeps changing on these two.” The issue wouldn’t effect the group’s airplay though, as the station has a longstanding policy to “treat heterosexuality and homosexuality the same way. Whether it’s two boys kissing or two girls kissing in a video, we treat it the same way,” says an assistant to Calderone.
