New Yulia Diary Entry


Hello-hello! Guys, thank you so much for your messages on the forum, thank you to those, who came to my home to say Happy birthday! So awesome! Thank you that you remember and love me! As always it was a celebration with a family, close friends and our team – and of course paparazzi. Some dude showed up at the restaurant and sat near our company – “to eat” – the guy had cameras and recorders all over him. But we quickly figured him out. Somebody was shooting us from the outside... But this is unimportant. So many people congratulated me on that day! And so many presents! Serezha Lazarev gave me a bag, actually so many bags were among the gifts! Lena's present was a special jewelry box shaped as a house and Parvis presented me 501 roses and a Mercedes!
Such a great day…
I am 23!!!

New Lena Diary Entry


Hi, everybody! That’s me again! : ))
Well, Cuba is a fairy tale! I’m full of excitement!
The ocean is powder-blue, absolutely pure water and white sand! Palm trees, sun, heat… It was disappointing to come back to cold snowy Moscow, but still there’s something good – I was home-sick…
It was the first time we traveled in couples. I wrote that my best friend got married – so this was a kind of honeymoon trip for her and her husband! Such cuties :)) I just love them so much!!!
The first impression – everything is super, but when you get out of resort area – you get shocked! There are houses on my photos where ordinary people live – it's a nightmare! Children come out to you, wave hands to the passing cars, clothes hanging down from ropes, the poverty is horrible… And you surely see that there’s socialism in the country. Average wages are $10-15 a month and some goods are still being sold for coupons. You can see Che Guevara everywhere – he is a national hero.

Habana is very beautiful. We’ve been to the Floriditta Bar where Hemingway liked to drink daiquiri, to Parisian Cabaret – it is now considered better than Tropicana. We traveled to Caribbean coast – beauty! And I held a crocodile! Well, I screamed a while before taking it with my hands! Then we traveled to a cave with underground lake in it, we yachted a river – I even dived from the second deck! What an adrenaline! We rode horses, drank tasty sugarcane juice, mojito, pino-colada, coconut milk, coffee… Walked around a 200-year-old baobab… All in all, we had a very good holidays! I think everyone should visit these places at least once. The only bad thing is service. It’s literally the land of sleep there! If you ask for an ashtray they may not bring it at all or bring after 20-30 minutes, and you'll need to remind them five times.
Well, that’s almost an essay I’ve just written!

: )) Kisses!

P.S. Photos will be later, guys!

Translation of Yulia’s Interview with Bravo


A translation of Yulia’s interview with Bravo magazine from February 20th is now available.

Last thing – about the new t.A.T.u. album? What it will be like?
Yulia: It’s hard to tell, two precedent albums were very different as a matter of fact, and this album also will be a very special one. Lots of electronic sound is in the music now… The album will be a smashing one, that’s for sure!

Radio Mayak interview translation


A small part of t.A.T.u.’s interview with Radio Mayak from today (see here) was translated by KaiDarkBlue ( forum). The girls discuss their newest video “Beliy Plaschik” and its reactions in the translation. A full translation will be posted if and when available.

Interviewer: But what were their argument, why, what don’t they like about the video?
Yulia: Because they shoot me and I am pregnant and this is very brutal. Our first idea was “against abortions.”
Lena: Our second… or generally speaking, our idea was “against violence.”
Yulia: Yes, against cruelty.

Troy’s Debut Single “Never Walk Away”


The debut single and video “Never Walk Away” from Troy Maccubbin was released on January 29th, 2008. Unfortunately because of events within AML and following the possible t.A.T.u. appearance at UCSB, we neglected to report it then. You can watch the video for “Never Walk Away” below. The single is a clash between pop/rock and features some light electro elements that t.A.T.u. fans are sure to enjoy. If you’d like to purchase Troy’s new single, a digital download is available on iTunes’ store for just $0.99. In addition, Troy’s site and MySpace have been updated with new pictures and information. Troy’s debut album is set to be released “very soon” according to his official site.

Possibility of a t.A.T.u. performance at UCSB, California

Source: /

According to Russian Club Treasurer Corinne Seals, “We’re really excited to bring t.A.T.u. here because they are such a big name and they would further promote contemporary Russian culture,” Seals said. “Their performance will go along with our clubs overall theme.” The concert will take place on March 6 in the Hub and admission will be free for students at the UCSB. It is uncertain whether or not additional tickets may be purchased for additional non-student viewers since the Hub’s capacity is only 800 people. In addition, board member Paige Blatt said that “because of the size of the trip, it would be difficult to accommodate any more participants.”

Corinne Seals exclusively reveals to us, “I’m not really able to confirm anything at this point (sorry to dash any hopes). As the Nexus reported, a possible concert is in the works, and we would absolutely love to welcome t.A.T.u. Being a major fan of t.A.T.u myself, I understand how exciting this possibility is. However, we’re still discussing this on multiple levels with the parties, so I’d like to respect this process and t.A.T.u.’s camp by not really going into detail on this at this time. Once everything is confirmed, I will definitely be able to talk to you more.”

More information coming soon as it progresses.

Yes! Stars Interview


December, 10

This time I visited a doctor. On the way back we checked one shop and – what a miracle! – I found a fur coat. And right my size. I’m tiny and my sizes are quickly sold out in shops. But this time I was lucky. Tomorrow we will definitely go and buy it. It’s great I’ve got time to do some personal things. The hard time is ahead: We’re releasing an “uncensored” version of the video “Beliy Plaschik.” There won’t be any hardcore violence, of course, but there’ll be something more impressive...

Atmosfera magazine interview


View scans of the magazine here.

So t.A.T.u. also has its taboo after all: To give birth and broadcast it live is not for you. Any plans after the important event? As I expect you’re not going to stay home?
Yulia: I’m not. The new album “Waste Management” is out in spring. By “waste” we mean not only waste that disturbs normal people, but also negative emotions. Everyone should fight his inner negativity… We plan to shoot one more video, then concerts, promo-tour. A load of work.
