Lena shares her thoughts about the new song "Ne Zhaley"


Well, my dears! First, I’m so glad that most of you liked our new song. Of course it will sound a little bit different after rehearsals and on the album. I was on edge when I sang it in Luzhniki. Performing a song for the first time! And second, it’s probably my favorite song already. When I played it for my Mom, she cried. It’s so moving… I think many of you will feel it “through” and understand it. By the way, there is an English version of “Ne Zhaley”. It will be included in the album, but won’t be a single.

Ne Zhaley lyrics posted at


About an hour ago everybody, who was at Luzhniki open-air, heard new t.A.T.u. song translated as Don't Regret. So far the song is only in Russian. Still, here are the lyrics.

Ne Zhaley

Ti ne zhaley
Vse ne naprasno
Litsa ludey
Tayut i gasnut

Mi s toboy molchim
Ti i ya vdvoyom
Dalshe ne hotim
Bolshe ne poyom

Veter v volosah
Nash prostivshiy sled
Slezi na glazah
Nas tam bolshe net

Mi s toboy molchim
Ti i ya vdvoyom
Dalshe ne hotim
Bolshe ne poyom

Bolshe ne poyom
Broshenniy kuplet
Ti i ya vdvoyom
Nas tam bolshe net

Ne vozvratit’
Nashih biletov
Ne poluchit’
Chestnih otvetov

Do not regret (Translation by Ev)

Don't Regret
Nothing is vain
The people's faces
Melt away and fade off

You and me, we're silent
You and me, the both of us
We don't want to go on
We don't sing anymore

The wind in hair
Is our vanishing trace
Tears in the eyes
There's no longer us

You and me, we're silent
You and me, the both of us
We don't want to go on
We don't sing anymore

We don't sing anymore
The forsaken verse
You and me, the both of us,
We're no longer there

It's impossible to return
out tickets
It's impossible to recieve

t.A.T.u.'s Third Album Title Released!

We at AML have always offered you news without the big bulk of Russian text that you can't understand, and don't even want to try to read. So here is the summarized version of what all the Russian fans are taking forever to read, without the excessive (and unneeded) text. We hope you will enjoy our bulleted list of recent t.A.T.u. facts...

- The name of t.A.T.u.'s third studio album will be "Upravlenie Otbrosam" or "Waste Management".
- We are not sure whether this will also be the title of the English Album.
- t.A.T.u. plan to sing one new track named "Ne Zhaley" or "No Regrets" at the ZD festival in Moscow.
- Sergio Goloyan IS working with t.A.T.u. on "Waste Management"
- Valery Polienko IS working with t.A.T.u. on "Waste Management"
- "Waste Management" promises to be a continuation of the Lyudi Invalidy storyline.
- "Waste Management" will be less more of a Dance/Electronica album rather than Pop/Rock like D&M.
- Yulia plans to work and perform until October on both the album "Waste Management" and the movie "Finding t.A.T.u."

So as you can see, we've been given quite a bit of information in a relatively short period of time. The only step left until the release of the album, is of course - the period of waiting from the fans. So hang in tight, and remember to check AML frequently for all your t.A.T.u. updates regarding "Waste Management". "Finding t.A.T.u." and whatever else we decide to update on!

Special Thanks: forre [] for translating the main article.

Lena answers questions in diary


My question:

Will you return to American TV?

We’ll try to.


Hi everybody! Here are answers to some of your questions, guys!

About the new album: Will there be an English AND Russian Version of the album – as it was before?

Yes, there’ll be both Russian and English versions. The songs will be a bit different. By the way, some translations of song lyrics will differ a little from originals in their meaning. But this is the way it’s getting together.

When you share a bed how do you choose parts and who wakes up earlier?

It depends… Generally, I sleep on the left, and Yulia - on the right. And who wakes up earlier – it’s different every time. But Yulia wakes earlier more often because she spends much time doing her hair. And meanwhile I have time to lie in!

There’s a lot of gay people among your fans. You helped many people in the world to realize who they are. What would you advise intimidated homosexual teenagers, whose parents hate and offend gays?

Just not to be afraid and to live how they think they should. Because it is their life and nobody, even parents, has a right to interfere in love relationship. It’s not always correct what mothers and fathers tell us. They judge from their point of view, and it is necessary to have your own experience and to make - or not to make - your own mistakes in life. Maybe then it’s possible to understand something: What is right or wrong, what is necessary and not necessary.

What single word would you choose to describe your fans?


Will you play or write music in the new album?

So far we played or wrote nothing – we like the material that our songwriters offer.

When will you finally stop making fun of us and make a new video and release a new single?

First, nobody makes fun of you, and second, there’ll be a new video soon. Have some patience!

Lena, if you had a daughter, what name would you choose for her?

I haven’t thought of it. I’ll have a look at a religious calendar and choose among names close to baby’s birth date.

What do you think of the song "Simple motions "? Why did you decide not to release English version of this song?

Good song. It’s such a cool Volkova’s scream: "Ya prodolzhayu!!!!" But this song was ready kind of “between albums” and was promoted as single in Russian – and there was no place for the English version at that moment. Although it exists.

Does Fan Art interest you? Do you look through the pictures devoted to you, watch video and read fan-fic?

Certainly! Many things are forwarded to us. And sometimes I see things here, at our site - when Tolik is at home, as he knows what people do with computers

Lena, I read that for t.A.T.u. casting you sang a song in Spanish. What song was it? And if it is not true, would you like to sing in Spanish and do you like this language?

No, it’s not true. I sang in English, it was Roxette’s "It must have been love ". But I really like Spanish language and actually plan to learn Spanish and French in the future.

Popularity is not only about taking pictures and looking pretty on stage, but also a way to get a message to people and make them think. Weґve all seen big artists using their popularity for a good cause. Bon Jovi helped building houses for the Katrina victims. Shakira helped poor children in her country etc. Are you planning to use your popularity to help a good cause?

I do some things not as a popular artist, but as Lena Katina, unknown to many. I don’t want my little charity things I do to be covered by media because in Russia most people consider it artist’s PR in a bad sense of this word – everybody, look, how good I am… It’s a little bit differently accepted abroad. Besides, in the West if an artist takes part in charity projects, he or she can be sure that money will be got to the right destination. In Russia it’s very difficult to track this...

Therefore I prefer not to send money, but to get some toys and go to orphanage or hospital… And I don’t believe when they say, "We need money!" I believe when they say, "We need shoes of this size, this many pampers, or crawlers, irons, medicine…"

Do you know the approximate date of new album’s release?

We don’t know yet. All information will be on the official site.

Will you return to American TV?

We’ll try to.

What happened with "Truth” DVD? It was never released.

It’s actually ready, but because of legal issues with our former record-label, which we hadn’t expect, we couldn’t release it. But…. (drumming)… soon “Truth” will be exclusively available at More information will be posted here, at the official site.

What is your new record label?

We’re in the process of negotiations. To sign a new contract with a record label, it’s first necessary to record an album. And the album is almost ready.

Girls, honestly, don’t we bother you too much?

No, not too much Oh, and it will be just great if nobody calls at 4 AM pretending to be several different people!

What do you think of an environment protection?

I think it’s a very good thing. We have only one planet! I personally try at least not to throw trash right out of the window - like some people do.

Lena, what do you think of the news that Yulia’s waiting for a baby?

Well, what can I think?! What would you think of happiness of your dear, close person that you really love? I am so glad for Yulka! Children are a holy thing. So – be happy together with us!

Kiss you,

New Lena diary entry


Well... Margo found home. It's so sad to give these puppies away... But nothing can be done... We have two more - flat-coated and fluffy. On Saturday, while we washed them and took to vet for injections, I was pissed all over! Cool! Little ones are so small and defenceless... I brought them back to dacha - to their mom. They missed her very much. Bye guys! I'm still waiting for you letters! Lena

P.S. Me and Julia answered some of your questions. The answers are in the next entry!!!!!


The first puppy was taken by Diana. She left the name given to a puppy by Lena - Margo. Margo is doing ok.

Article about Julia's pregnancy

Source: forum | Thanks Argos!!

Yulya Volkova: I am pregnant!

The soloist of "Tatu" is expecting a baby from somebody else's husband

Yulya Volkova and her beloved young guy Parviz have confirmed that their relationship is totally serious and has nothing in common with a flirt, like many are inclined to believe.

The soloist of the scandalous duet is in interesting circumstances and the future child occupates all the thoughts of the young people. At the same time Parviz has a legal wife, the ex-singer of the group "Tutsi" Masha Veber and a one year old son.

We may remind, that we were first to tell about the changes in the private life of Yulya. At that time the singer told in the interview, that she is happy with Parviz like never before and that she dreams to give birth to a son for him. The young guy too experiences not less strong feelings to the famous singer, this time he decides to leave the wife and the little child. And just now Yulya prepares herself to become a mother.

The Situation

The time is still early, she is in her third month, but Parviz shows already telling restlessness and excitement. At the party after the MuzTV award in a trendy night club the young guy permanently held the belly of the loved one and protected her from the crowd. Yulya herself behaved quite deliberate. If she lead an active life at the time of the first pregnancy until the last one, now everything goes completely different. The singer didn't even think of dancing to the dynamical music, most of the time she spent sitting at the table, periodically removing the shoes from the swollen legs.

As "Zhizn" has cleared up, the pregnancy of Yulya proceeds normal. She passes the examination in an elitary centre. Just yesterday Parviz drove her to the clinic, where the new born will catch sight of the world.

"Yes, I am pregnant and very happy" committed the future mom to "Zhizn". "I don't want to think of anything, but I dream about a son. Parviz is happy too that we will have a second child. The only thing that worries me, - how will Masha Veber react to this news?"
