Post subject: STERN (Germany): Interview [January 31] Reply with quote
Here's an interview from the German magazine STERN (issue 6/2006). Thank you to Liyah (Tatugirls.de forum) for pointing this interview out. Here's my translation:

Quote:
What's going on with... t.A.T.u.?



With cheeky statements, French kisses and vibrators as stage props the two Russians played with provocation very successfully.

Julia, 15 months ago you gave birth to your daughter Viktoria. Now you live as a single mom in Moscow.

Julia: Yes, Viktoria's father and I broke up after the birth. My daughter has two nannies who live with her in my apartment. I alternately stay with her or with my parents.

It doesn't sound like you really feel like a mother with 20. When did you last see your daughter?
Julia: Yesterday, we watched a DVD together. "Shadowboxing" was the title of the film. But I fell asleep again. Of course I feel like a mother. It's a normal mental development for women.

It's been said that you even hired a bodyguard for Viktoria.
Julia: True. But I'm not going to say why. Too personal. She only needs the bodyguard when talking a walk. The apartment has an alarm system.

Elena, you have a new boyfriend. The papers wrote: 23 years old and a lawyer.
Elena: We met at a sushi restaurant and just moved in together.

Two years ago, all the world thought the pop duo t.A.T.u. was lesbian.
Elena: We never said we were lesbians. We both had a boyfriend the whole time. But no one ever asked us about that.

So all the wild kissing and hugging was for the image only?
Elena: That happened spontaneously and emotionally. The first time for a video. That had nothing to do with an image campaign.

How did your parents react?
Elena: They are very laid-back and laughed.

Today your former manager, the child psycholgist Ivan Shapovalov, is the producer of a singer who he presents as a mummed Muslim suicide bomber. Isn't that a bit macabre?
Julia: Why? I don't see the harm in this.

They say that you broke up with Shapovalov at odds with him, because he earned millions with Tatu and only a small percentage was left for you?
Elena: We are still friends with Shapovalov today. And money really is the last thing we are interested in. The contracts with him were negotiated by our lawyers.

How did the break-up come about then?
Julia: I was pregnant and at home with my parents. However, my relationship with Shapovalov was always better than Lena's [relationship with him]. So he visited us, and I told him that I didn't want to anymore. We didn't quarrel about it, but it was quite unexpected for him.

Supposedly, you were pregnant before and had an abortion.
Julia: Maybe.

That was in 2003, the year when you participated in the Eurovision Song Contest.
Julia: I did not look at the calendar.

Elena, you once said you had committed so many sins that you went to see a priest frequently.
Elena: Today these aren't sins for me anymore. But I am a religious person, I go to church regularly.

How will it all go on?
Elena: First a promo tour, then concerts. And I definitely want to be a mother too. I've always wanted that. It just didn't come to pass.
Julia: I want more children as well. Best would be four.

A little bit too much interest in their private lives in my opinion, but at least this time the interviewer is well read and know what questions he's asking.

Thumb Four is good. Three or four.

I'm glad Lena seems to have a good relationship going with the guy she just moved in with. =)

Thank you very much for the translation xena225!

Ahh..interesting interview, thanks xena225

Oh and I agree with Maraja, little too much interest in their personal lives indeed..

that is not waht nATo is about XD nATo is not a suicide bomber she is a woman who sings about the pain that her people are going through she is dressed like that because thats what she has always wore. Rolleyes people are gonna get the wrong idea of her and that sucks for her. Anyway i think yulia would be a good mother to 4 kids ^^ and lenas children or child could have play dates with yulias ^^

Das war 2003, dem Jahr, als Sie am Grand Prix teilnahmen.
Julia: Ich habe nicht im Kalender nachgesehen.

LOL


Nice interview. I wonder why she needs a bodyguard for Vika.

Hey this interview was done on my birthday or published.

Julia seems pissed here, this interviewer is very annoying!! They ask such stupid questions! They don't really ask anything about Dangerous and Moving. Just personal none-of-your-business stuff.


Quote:
Elena, you have a new boyfriend. The papers wrote: 23 years old and a lawyer.
Elena: We met at a sushi restaurant and just moved in together.


Damn! *Thinks of a plan to kill her boyfriend and convince Lena to come back to America and marry me*


Quote:

Julia: True. But I'm not going to say why. Too personal. She only needs the bodyguard when talking a walk. The apartment has an alarm system.


...Interesting

Thanks again xena225
