Wink t.A.T.u. Goes Straight

June 11, 2004 -- Russian pop tarts t.A.T.u. are relaunching themselves with a new name and single. Since parting company with manager Ivan Shapovalov, who owns the t.A.T.u. name, teenagers Julia Volkova and Elena Katina have reportedly opted to rename themselves t.E.m.A.

The Russian press claims that the girls now wish to be taken seriously as musicians, and will be dropping their lesbian act and admitting to having been heterosexual all along.

New producer Boris Renskiy says the lesbian gimmick was Shapovalov's idea, and would be impossible to maintain now Volkova is noticeably pregnant.

The dark-haired Volkova, who will give birth to her married lover's child in September, said: "I don't know if I am going to have a girl or a boy… Obviously we will not be celebrating a wedding."

It was previously reported that the duo would put their pop career on hiatus until after the birth, but the re-branded t.E.m.A. will now release "Who, If Not Me" at the end of June.

I liked them as lesbians better, probably won't even take notice of them for being straight. In fact they lost some of my respect for "faking" gay.

I'm BACK & SINGLE. So lock up all the hotties!

Really too bad- Lena Katina is lovely- but not very surprising. Let's face it, they never showed any signs of any romantic involvement off stage. I didn't know if they were really gay or not, but it was pretty obvious they weren't involved with each other.

Yulia! That was not the smartest thing in the history of show business. Somehow, I don't think t.E.m.A or whatever they're calling themselves now will do half as well. They had a great album, but All The Things She Said was a masterful attention-getter that may be hard to repeat without the hook.

Admittedly, I'm disappointed, though this is really pretty funny. Well, I don't much care what Yulia does, and she's made a bit of a joke of herself- lying about orientation, married, older lover, getting pregnant (is she even 19 yet?). But Lena... I'm just hoping there's something we haven't heard yet... Yes, Mariangelina liked having famous teenage "lesbians" around because she is a closeted nincompoop, and now Mariangelina is pissed off. Mariangelina will shut up now.

I sound like an idiot sometimes, n'est-ce pas?

Well, I walk into the room
Passing out hundred dollar bills
And it kills and it thrills like the horns on my Silverado grill
And I buy the bar a double round of crown
And everybody's getting down
And this town ain't never gonna be the same.
Cause I saddle up my horse and I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls, they are so pretty...

All
ez Amélie!

the relevant point being...washing up what?



And then she was back, that goddess-like creature, back to torment the souls of the good and distribute free samples of bacon to the bad.
