Tatu Searches Popping Thanks To Lesbian Come-On
November 1, 2002 – t.A.T.u. are the ‘Ones to Watch’ on today’s edition of the Lycos 50. Aaron Schatz writes, “There is nothing wrong with a lesbian pop band, of course, but there’s a difference between a group with integrity (say, Indigo Girls) and a disposable pop act that uses lesbianism as a come-on to attract sex-starved male fans. But that distinction doesn’t stop the searches. Tatu queries popped up a bit this summer when they released their first single in Europe, but they really started rising in the past few weeks as the single hit America. Right now Tatu gets more searches than U2, Leann Rimes, or the Dave Matthews Band, and they are only going up.” The complete story at 50.lycos.com has since been removed.
t.A.T.u. Looking For Backup Musicians
October 27, 2002 – Tatu have decided to invite some guys in for backup, the daily Zhizn writes. Lena Katina and Yulya Volkova are looking for a guitarist, a drummer and a percussionist. Besides their professional talent, the two demand that candidates be between 18 and 30, hold a passport for foreign travel and lead a “healthy lifestyle” – no self-destructing or anti-social habits for them. The move will fundamentally change how Tatu performs on stage, allowing them to sing to live accompaniment. The same crew of musicians will work with the girls in the studio.
