http://tatumedia.com/post/97686117877/julia-volkova-lie-detector - Interview and article.

What do you think about this? I was shocked when she would be willing to condemn her hypothetical gay son Samir, but be willing to accept her daughter Victoria if she came out as a lesbian. Her reasoning was strange, lesbians more aesthetically pleasing then gay men and men don't have the right to be faggots because it is stupid freedom? The double standard here, willingness to condemn her son and forgetting what t.A.T.u represented before etc, may have killed off her solo career and any chance (However small it would have been) of a future t.A.T.u reunion.

It's so sad it ended like this, I will continue to follow her but I can't help but see her much differently....For the wrong reasons.

Lena posted this on her facebook page, to which is no doubt linked to Julia's comments - Hey, all! I am seeing some comments lately regarding my position about LGBT and my religion. I can say one thing: God is teaching us to live in love, to be tolerant and not to judge other people! And I do so! Love is love and it is a wonderful feeling! I think everybody should be free to love who they love and be with who they want to spend their life with! Xoxo.

What do you guys think?

Lena has always been true to her feelings, even if some didn't like it. Yulia has used it to her own ends and as such the dissolution of tatu began. Lena was always more committed to tatu, as seen near the end when she would show up for a tatu.tv meeting and Yulia would not. Lena cared most and thus her song 'Never Forget'.

I was shocked too. I mean, sure Yulia has always had her own way of living and doing things but I certainly didn't expect this!
I mean what can I say? It's impossible for me to come up with any excuses for what she says and does: Now I just think she's a horrible person. Can't help it. Frown

This is how I feel and I hope I don't make Yulia fans upset. This video has spun out of control. Media outlets and newspapers are covering it like it's candy. A lot of Yulia fans are defending her saying it's a mistranslation or the video was edited. I do not think that's the case. If that is, where is the original source video - the unedited version? Also, Russian news websites are covering this as well and there is no talk of a "unedited" version.

Finally, if that was the case that the video was edited, I'm 100% sure her management would make it a more priority case and have Yulia apologize. She has not and the sad thing is, despite her views and letting down a lot of fans, she has no remorse for what she said. She stands by what she said. Not only is this hurtful to fans and even LGBT non-fans, Lena had to write on social networks stating that her views or not like Yulia's and the t.A.Tu management had to post that they are disappointed in what Yulia said. Those two reasonings alone are proof enough that the video was NOT edited to sound make what Yulia said sound worse. It is what she originally said.

I see no hatred from Yulia’s side. The same cannot be said for some of the people flooding facebook with their propaganda: https://www.facebook.com/juliavolkoveofficial

The thing that amazes me is that she says she has many gay friends. Confused I wonder how her friends are taking it...

Anyway, I have a friend too (via work) who's okay with lesbians but has a hateful reaction to homosexuals (men). She says it's because of what her mother has thought her. She says she does accept homosexuals but then again, she has this hateful side. So people can be complicated. Rolleyes

not saying Yulia is being hateful to gays but somehow they seem to go against her way of seeing how things should be. Especially when it comes to her own son. She says a man has to be real man (like being gay makes you somehow less of a man?). She has kind of an stereotypical values, I think. Although, she said in the article that two girls are looked better on than two men. In many other articles this is interpreted as that two girls look better together than too men but I began to think that maybe Yulia would not like her son to be gay because they're not so easily accepted by the society and thus don't want her son to have to go through with that.

^ This is from a translation of what Yulia said on the Lie Detector show, posted here:

Julia said she would not continue her career lip synching t.A.T.u.’s old hits if she lost her voice forever.

So it depends on her voice.

Ah, cheers. Hope her voice recovers fast then. While I doubt Tatu will reunite, I wish nothing but success for both.

Apparently the video of Julia in the lie detector was edited or something, bit confused here.
