The girls meet in Moscow, go to a concert together and soon get sucked into the whirlpool of incredible events. Together they plunge into the attractive yet dangerous world of nightlife, experience adventures on the verge of fairy-tale and nightmare, and undergo trials of their own friendship. Despite all the conflicts, betrayal and disappointment, the girls shall renounce false values and discover new feelings and talents within themselves. 
Sincerity, creativity and love shall cross their paths with Tatu and then lead them even further, to the fulfilment of their dreams of a different and better life. The story's happy end is marked by an immense concert in front of a huge crowd. Plot twists, memorable characters and, of course, lots of music will be there to please the viewer. In addition, Tatu have written several new songs for the project and will actually appear in the movie as themselves.

18.05.2007 - Tatu supports Gay Pride Parade in Moscow
Dear friends!
We are addressing gay community in Russia and in the rest of the world in relation to Gay Parade being organized in Moscow on May, 26-27. We're now in Los Angeles recording the new album. As always, our music will be about people and standing for people, about love and standing for love. We think that every person should express his or her love to another person in the way these two people wish, and no third parties may interfere with their dogmas. We are supporting people disregarding their sexual orientation or any other differences.
When Tatu's second album came out, many of our fans of alternative sexual orientation thought that we lied and betrayed them. This is not true! We've never done that and we’ve always advocated love without boundaries.
We will really try to take a time-out in recording and come to Moscow to support you.
Yours, Yulia and Lena of Tatu", - says press-release from the group.
The parade of sexual-minority in Moscow has once again been prohibited by the Major of Moscow. The organisers say that the march will take place despite of this decision.
As one of the participants of the parade Nikolai Alexeev thinks, the city authorities have no rights to prohibit demonstrations of the alternative sex orientation minority because its representatives are citizens of the country, as the rest of Russia's population. He said as well that such a prohibition won't affect the parade, which will take place in any case. The parade is planned to pass by Alexandrovsky Park around Kremlin and Myasnitskaya Street. The corresponding applications have been sent to the Major of Moscow Yury Luzhkov and the Pesident of Russia Vladimir Putin but the organisers report they didn't receive any answers from them.
According to the organisers, several hundreds are believed to take part in the Parade on May, 27th.

28.06.2007 - Tatu third album remains questionable
Despite Tatu having spent a few months in Los Angeles, actual recording of the album remains questionable.
"I really don't know much about the new album. We haven't recorded anything on the new album just yet which has been disappointing. So I am really hoping we do. 
I think its crazy if we don't get to record on the new album because us guys have become such a huge part of Tatu. We know the sound and have such great ideas. But who knows what will happen. There is always lots of politics in these situations and you just have to roll with what happens. I really hope we just deliver a great album for the fans" - said one of the Tatu musicians Troy McCubbin.
Serguey Galoyan, who was previously mentioned as one of the authors working with the third album commented the situation.
"Yes, I showed songs for Tatu's third album and they chose 4 of them. I can speak surely of my participation on the album only after the contract is signed, which hasn't even been discussed yet" - said Serguey to our site.
At the same time, Lena Katina said in her diary that the album was almost ready.


03.07.2007 - Tatu's new video Beliy Plashik (White Robe)
As we previously mentioned, Tatu are intended to treat their fans with a new video soon.

Yulia is going to be at her last period of pregnancy by this time. An excerpt of the new song Bely Plashik is available at our forum. English translation of the Russian lyrics is as follows:

I draw in black
A stupid word on the wall
It's not important for me
It's not new for you

It does nothing for me
But for you, it is important
I draw in black
I draw crookedly, crookedly
