Ever since Sigg3 dot net’s Female of the Year 2003 competition, where t.A.T.u participated, it has been rather quiet around the Russian pseudo-lesbian duo. This is what ananova.com reported in May this year:
Tatu are to dump their name and their manager who they say is interested only in orchestrating scandals and not in developing their artistic talent. Lena Katina and Julia Volkova’s decision to ditch Ivan Shapovalov was reported in Russian paper Dni.
Volkova said: "He spends his time thinking up scandals instead of planning our artistic work. I’m sure our fans would rather hear new songs and new albums than new scandals."
Shapovalov is credited with dreaming up the idea of portraying the girls as lesbian lovers and was last year arrested after arranging for hundreds of schoolgirls to turn up in Moscow’s Red Square to star in a video.
They were told to kiss each other in front of Lenin’s tomb and St Basil’s Cathedral for the video.
But Tatu will also have to dump their name as Shapovalov holds the copyright.
What is going on? Where are they?
A further investigation will be executed asap. A nice, big picture!
