Personal Quotes (3)

There is a love of friends between us. Our slogan is to love and it's not important whom to love. We want to say that a boy can love a boy and a girl can love a girl. If all people would love each other, it would be easier to live in this world. If people are lead by hatred and evil, nothing good would happen from this.
"We don't regret anything. In general, it is never necessary to regret anything, whatever happens. Whatever you plan, things turn out differently anyway. It is simply not necessary to make illusions for yourself. There was no image. We always behave the way we want to." -on t.A.T.u.'s lesbian image.
Two girls together-- not the same thing as two men together. It seems to me that lesbians look aesthetically much nicer than two men holding hands or kissing.
