Dmitry Mozheitov of Lifestyle.ru spoke with Yulya Volkova and Lena Katina of Tatu, who asked that their answers not be identified by their respective names, since they think of themselves as an entity rather than two separate individuals. Asked if they were worried their album would flop in puritanical America, one responded, “We’re not afraid of anything. Our Western partners have faith in us and we believe in our success. Having signed a contract with Universal Music Russia, we got the chance to work with the super-professionals of world show business, and we believe that with their help everything will work out.” Meanwhile, the two seem to have drawn the interest of Enrique Iglesias, as they admit, “When we were recording in London, he invited us to dinner.”
There’s Something ‘Not Fakey’ About Tatu
August 16, 2002 – Vanilla-Wall.net recently spoke with producer Trevor Horn who worked on t.A.T.u.’s new album ‘200 km/h in the Wrong Lane’, and in the past worked on ‘Video Killed the Radio Star’ (The Buggles), ‘Owner of a Lonely Heart’ (Yes), ‘Relax’ (Frankie Goes to Hollywood), and ‘Kiss from a Rose’ (Seal). Asked if the teen lesbian duo’s ‘All The Things She Said’ accomplish something similar, he said, “Well, I mean, I’ve got absolutely no idea. But, I’m quite fond of ‘All The Things She Said’. I think it’s a nice record especially if you listen to it all the way through. It sort of grows. And, it’s good. It’s a nice record. What’s around these days is kind of a bit ‘fakey.’ There’s something ‘not fakey’ about t.A.T.u. and about what the song’s about.”
