Post subject: t.A.T.u. & Sting [Molotok No. 32/ 2005] + video Reply with quote
We all know that Sting plays the bass guitar on "Friend or Foe" on t.A.T.u.'s upcoming album - but according to a news item on the website of Molotok Magazine, he will even make a video clip for "Friend or Foe" with them, and reportedly he will do it for free!

I don't know how reliable this information is, and I don't have time to translate it right now, so if someone who speaks Russian can have a look at it, it would be greatly appreciated (4th news bit from the top):

If I'm reading this correctly, it says they are already preparing the shooting of the clip.

I could post an offering from a trusty translator, but I don’t want to anger you, xena225. Thanks for posting anyway.

I think it says he won’t appear with them if they wear shorts. I have to say I find that a major disappointment.

They're always on the cover of Molotok. I wonder what it keeps saying about them!

I think this would be excellent! I hope it's true!

Sting: girl, dress!
t.A.T.u. and Sting they are prepared for the surveys of joint clip to song Friends Or Foe. Usually stars with the world name work with our only for the normal fee - $shch00—"00 of thousands. Such sums madonna called to group "dances minus", and Eminem - To alsu. But to "tatushkam" poperlo - them, like Sting, prodyusiruyet company Universal. So that celebrity not only writes with the girls the party of bass-guitar, but also it will be removed in their clip completely gratis. True, Sting advanced one condition: in the roller of no obnazhenki, so that bustling and Katya they will be properly dressed: no shorts and mayechek.


See. It makes perfect sense.

Thanks for posting and translating, xena225 and RowerB. :thumbsup:

I wonder if this is a believable story, but if it is essentially correct: beware of the fine print when someone says he can do something for you for free. O_o

So, could Molotok maybe also tell if the preparations for the shooting still go ahead?

Sting: girls, put your clothes on!

t.A.T.u. and Sting are going to shoot joint video on the song “Friends or foe”. International stars usually work with ours (Russian) only for normal fee - $500 000 - $700 000. Madonna mentioned this round sum to “Tancy minus”, Eminen – Alsou. But tatugirls has a success – Unversal works with them and Sting. That’s why the celebrity records the part of bass-guitar with the girls, but will act in the video free of charge. But Sting lays down one condition: no nudity in the video, so Yulia and Lena will be dressed properly: no pants and t-shirts.

Bit odd coming from Gordon-mr-16-hour-tantric-sex-god-Sumner, wouldn't you think?

Still, that's publicity you can take to the bank.

HA! That slayed me, sting.

And boy howdy, Tatu sure is showing us love.

...*ahem* Sorry.

I'm definitely looking forward to further videos off of this album, which should shadow their freshmen release in both production value and quality of content. And hey, hopefully album sales.

Friend or Foe, the video. This is going to be good.

Tatu will shoot their third video in Los Angeles

Time of publication: 14.10.2005 (16:34)

October 13th, Tatu left for Los Angeles to shoot their new promotional video. The decision of Universal Music to release "Frend Or Foe" as group's second single was initially taken only for USA but during the promo-tour, Tatu's lable came to the conclusion that "Friend Or Foe" would be a better second single than "Dangerous And Moving" as it had been planned from the start. The "Friend Or Foe" shoot will be done in the Los Angeles suburbs under direction of James Cox.

The promo-visit to Israel is postponed. The dates are not set at the moment.

Officially confirmed:

Quote:
October, 14
On October 13, after a four-day visit to Japan, t.A.T.u. flew to Los Angeles, where on October,16 – October,18 a new video for the song “Friend or Foe” – the second single for the international album - will be shot. The third video will be directed by James Cox.

I've heard this story about him before. It's weird to explain, but a freaky girl that's dressed very pretty is a turn on for Sting. A friend of mine worked as a stripper in NY over ten years ago and she told me that Sting would come in regularly to her establishment to dance with any of the girls as long as they were dressed very pretty. My friend got to dance with him one night and wore a very pretty dress. He kept asking her if she found him attractive and if she thought he looked old.

He's going to feel really old with Lena and Julia around! LOL

Well thats cool of sting. What are they going to do? Show him playing the guitar every now and then? I don't think it really matters if he's in or not, as long as people start recognizing t.A.T.u. thats cool. Whatever, but they should
always, ALWAYS, be dressed like half naked, because that's how they do, and it fits them well.

It's no secret that besides not being modest at all with his bed antics, Mr. Gordon Sumner aka Sting is also a god amongst control freaks. I don't see how the decision comes to lie in his hands however, it should be up to the director, producer and costume designer to dress up Yulia and Lena accordingly to the video. Squint

I mean, if a girl dressed up in a pretty attire is a turn on for him, that's cool, but this is a video they're shooting, and Yulia and Lena are not there to amuse him, sheesh. Rolleyes

If dressing pretty will save then 500K then that is so much the better as well as having a well know name in the Video.

Normally, I'd agree, but Sting didn't even sing in the song (unless they're recording a second version ft. Sting? Pffft ). Tatu ft. "whomever" should not normally appear in a video unless that second personality SUNG a part in the song, or else we'd normally have Hip Hop song titles be "Person 1 ft. all the rest of the hip hop industry".

I dunno, add to it that I'm not a fan of Sting's antics when collaborating with other people, and you've got a general dislike for the guy. Normally the girls don't have a say in what they wear in a video either, so why should Sting be able to dictate what they're gonna wear? Half Frown

I'd rather wait for a confirmation that Sting actually said this, before I roll my eyes at this alleged request. And even if he made it - who says Yulia and Lena would actually care about that?

Quote:
From Thursday to Saturday Mandy Line, a stylist and a costume designer assistant in about twenty Hollywood movies, has been searching Los Angeles fashion shops for the clothes and accessories preparing for the major photo-session on Thursday, June 23. [...] The “fashion show” lasts for 1,5 hours. At the end t.A.T.u. come up with clothes for 7 photo sets! [...] … But even a professional stylist doesn’t hit the target all 100%, and Yulia and Lena decide to shop themselves for the photo-session at the 3rd Street, Santa Monica. This is the first thing they do Monday morning.

A collaboration between Tatu and Sting is a big deal. I wouldn't mind him being in the video. We'll see.

Point in consideration, yes. Not everything Molotok has said before has been known to be true. :)

Oh well, I'm defeated by the majority. Indifferent Even so, now more than ever I'm more curious about what his role in the video would be. Let's hope they don't shoot his thinkers out too! Surprised/Shocked

This will definitely get them a lot of attention. That YHIF with the Veronicas has been playing a lot on MTV and that's getting the word out on Tatu as well. I bet tongues will be wagging more than they are now when that old man is seen in a video with Russia's young but most notorious female pop stars.

Heh.. I bet Yulia and Lena would tell him to fuck off if he decides to dictate what the girls should wear. If ever, I hope he won't try to control the girls too much just because he would do a video with them for free. Rolleyes
