t.A.T.u in Sochi !

The Olympics is a very exciting time for the whole world, but this one is particularly special to me. The Olympic games are in Russia! While on my tumblr feed this morning, I saw this video and felt like I was a preteen again. This song was ridiculously popular when I used to spend more time at home, and it instantly brought back all of the fun memories I had there.

The band is now known to be a faux lesbian duo, but back when they released their song they were trying to really convince their fans that their romance was real. They started pushing the bar for LGBT communities in Russia so long ago but the fight continues. 

Growing up a fan of their music I was never really affected by the image they were trying to portray. Although I do vividly remember all the parents being very offended by the band. For us kids it was just another awesome song, as children we never saw the full story the band was telling.

t.A.T.u is awesome! Enjoy.
