Maxim magazine transcript & translation


Five years have passed since the first t.A.T.u.’s shoot for Maxim magazine. We met Yulia and Lena to check what else has changed in their life besides their age. Um, well… It was a weak attempt to pretend that a pregnant girl on Maxim’s cover is a usual thing. And now a real lead. SPLIT ME! IT’S t.A.T.u.! AND ONE OF THEM IS EIGHT MONTHS PREGNANT!!!

t.A.T.u. finished dubbing for “Finding t.A.T.u.”


Lena Katina and Yulia Volkova finished the dubbing (also called automated dialog replacement or ADR) of the movie with a working title “Finding t.A.T.u.”. The dubbing took place at Mosfilm studio. Supervising sound editor Barney Cabral, a professional with more than 30 years of experience, together with movie’s producer Sergey Konov managed the process. Their aim was to record the synchronous sound that would match the video in emotions. In spite of the fact that the last time Yulia did dubbing was back at “Eralash” times, and Lena did it for the first time in her life, the girls recorded their lines in less than an hour.

New Lena blog


Gu-u-uys! At the beginning of January I bestowed my lovely girlfriend in marriage! The wedding was great! So much fun! It’s just newly-married were forced to kiss way too much! Pictures are coming, but later. And after the wedding I had a feeling that the childhood’s totally over… By the way, I acted as witness for the first time. And now we’re leaving for Cuba to relax with Nastya for two weeks! We’ve had this dream to spend holidays in couples – and it came true! I’ll share my impressions after vacation and until then – bye!
