flyscots Posted February 6, 2003 Share Posted February 6, 2003 Now would this happen in America? Two girls, performing under the name "TATU" have gone straight to the top of the singles charts with the song "All The Things She Says" First of all, I am saying nothing against lesbians nor am I promoting them, just thought it would be interesting to see what your thoughts are. These girls are causing quite a stir here in the UK. The song, quite a good song I might add, more dynamic than most pop songs, is about the struggles the girls come accross in their relationship - including falling out with each other and telling their parents. However, seeing as the general public dont actually [i]listen[/i] to the song the controversy sprung up when they saw the video. In the video, the girls, who are aged 16 and 17, are dressed in school uniforms with mini skirts. They are behind some sort of cage with lots of people staring at them like they are freaks - which fits nicely with the song. It is pouring down with rain and the girls are getting soaked. The proceed to touch each other all over and kiss a fair few times. One celebrity couple accused the managers of Tatu of "promoting paedophilia" Others in the press worry that this will encourage pre-teen girls to go around kissing each other. Once again I think the media has over-reacted but I half suspect this video would struggle to get shown in the States and the song would struggle to succeed because of the subject matter - am I right? Ahhh, the crazy world of music! John Scotsman Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
