t.A.T.u's Fake Lesbian Against Real Gays
In a very screwed up tale of the pot calling the kettle a goddamn hypocrite, Yulia Volkova, one of the fake lesbian singers of t.A.T.u., told Russian television that she would condemn her son if he were gay. Yeah, really. The reason? “I believe that a real man must be a real man. God created man for procreation, it is the nature. The man for me is the support, the strength of … I won’t accept a gay son,” however, “Two girls together — not the same thing as the two men together. It seems to me that lesbians look aesthetically much nicer than two men holding their hands or kissing.”
Lovely. Volkova’s band gained world recognition with songs like “All The Things She Said” and “Not Gonna Get Us” which referenced (and showed, if you remember their music videos) their struggle as a lesbian pair. Turns out it was a bunch of calculated bullshit to become famous, they’re both straight and apparently were both married (to men, not each other). Oh but don’t worry! She doesn’t hate gays, she “just want[s] [her] son to be a real man, not a fag,” adding, she “has many gay friends. I believe that being gay is all still better than murderers, thieves or drug addicts. If you choose out of all this, being gay a little better than the rest.” Phew! For a second we thought she was going to say something appalling. Wait a minute…
Consider t.A.T.u. completely erased from any and all of our throwback Thursday playlists (not that they were in them anyway). Sashay away Volkova. Like, now.
