t.A.T.u. Reunite
2014-02-18 by Alex Newton | 34 Comments

In case you missed it, hugely successful but controversial Russian duo t.A.T.u. is officially back together. Yulia Volkova and Lena Katina performed their first major show in three years at the opening ceremonies for the Sochi Winter Olympics, singing their 2003 international hit 'Not Gonna Get Us', as well as a new song, 'Любовь в каждом мгновении (Love in Every Moment)'.

The duo caused waves during their initial run from 2002-20011 with the girls' faux-lesbian lyrics and antics, highlighted by multi-platinum single 'All The Things She Said', and its racy video. They subsequently revealed that the lesbian shtick was a ploy thought up by manager Ivan Shapovalov.

Speculation persists that ceremony director Konstantin Ernst's choice of t.A.T.u. was in response to outrage over Russia's anti-LGBT laws as well as the group being the country's most recognizable band.

Waste Management was actually pretty enjoyable, not that anyone else with a dick cares.

so wait, his response to outrage over the anti-LGBT laws was to use a faux-lesbian band?

Good one pal

One of those awkward bands I heard when I used to watch Animated Music Videos back when Youtube didn't suck so badly.

"Here in Russia no one gives a shit about their
reunion."

Can't say I'm terribly surprised. If they were
as big in Russia as they were everywhere else
they wouldn't need to make English versions of
every album.

A music video would be a good start. Rumor has it there'll be one in April.

Yep, Lena's pulling the plug on it. She posted a video on her YouTube with a translation going something like this:

"Hello Guys,For the reason of incorrect behavior from Yulia’s side concerning me, I must announce that our future collaboration has become absolutely impossible. Aside from many crude and hurtful statements made about me, Yulia gave me an ultimatum: she declined to participate with me in t.A.T.u. if I do not comply with her and her team in all aspects regarding the creative direction of t.A.T.u.. Otherwise she will find a different red-headed, curly-haired girl to replace me. Besides that, I was threatened with the fact that Yulia, using her close ties to the heads of Channel 1 Russia, will shut down my solo project in Russia. In this instance I consider our future collaboration to be impossible as well as communication between us. I am sad that our fans’ hopes of a t.A.T.u. reunion will not come true. I hope you understand and I want to say thank you for loving and supporting me always. Thank you."

I'd like to hear both sides of this.
