Serebro - Song Nr. 1 Lyrics

Five, four, three, two
Listen to me
All my girls get ready (Uh huh)
We'll make it easy (Uh uh)

When I catch you picking me
You better get a chill
Boy, you wanna take on me
'Cause I'm your killing pill

Can't you see the way I move
My dress, my flashy skin
Listen up, you know I got
The place you've never been

Slow down
Boy, you don't wanna let me down
You better stop, you know what
Oh, don't call me funny bunny
I'll blow your money, money
I'll get you to my bad ass spinning for you
Oh, I'll make it easy, honey
I'll take your money, yummy
I've got my bitches standing up next to me

So come and check it (Uh)
So come and check it (Uh)
So come and check it
My bad ass spinning for you (Ow)

So come and check it (Uh)
So come and check it (Uh)
So come and check it
My bad ass spinning for you (Ow)

Keep on taking over you
It's kinda getting free
Baby boy you know I still
Got sexy freak in me

Gotta tease you nasty guy
So take it, don't be shy
Put your cherry on my cake
And taste my cherry pie

Slow down
Boy, you don't wanna let me down
You better stop, you know what
Oh, don't call me funny bunny
I'll blow your money, money
I'll get you to my bad ass spinning for you
Oh, I'll make it easy, honey
I'll take your money, yummy
I've got my bitches standing up next to me

Maybe I'll take you with me tonight
Maybe you'll show me another way
And find a reason for me to stay
But something I must tell you

I enjoy the group but the song title? "Song #1" It sounds like they ripped it in windows media player and didn't change the title afterwards.

well as shakespeare said, what's in a name? who really cares what it's called, titles are overrated anyway... and what were they gonna call it? "honey bunny?" "come on and check it?" ... those would all be retarted... haha.

someone posted the full cd with the 14 versions somewhere, it's amazing they could somehow make 14 versions of it... don't know if it's necessary, how about something new max? where's your usual brand of magic!?

A title is very important to an artist. They could have given it a simple title like "Check It" or something that isn't as ignorantly named as "Song #1"

"honey bunny?"
The line is "Funny Bunny"

Promo CD (13 tracks) (http://rapidshare.com/files/31478353/Song_1.zip.html)
Cover [front] (http://www.elenatemnikova.com/site/images/CDpromoTitul.jpg)
Cover (http://www.elenatemnikova.com/site/images/CDpromo_small.jpg)
[B]this is a promo-CD they gave out in Helsinki, or Song #1 Single, if you like. The names of the files are wrong in this package. Check the cover to get the right order

Version they performed at Eurovision is a Red one (so is ESC promo-video)
Extended version of the song and video is Red2 one, I believe.

Black version is the one they performed on MTV show 'Polniy Kontakt'.
Blue version is a mix with Glukoza's beats. Natasha just gave birth to a child recently and you can hear them congratulating her and doing this version specially for her.
Orange one is acapella with vocals alone.
Rest are in various styles. I personally like Pink one even if I find it hard to understnad why this dark sexy version is called this way :bum:

Title thing explanation. It's a part of the simplistic concept they came up with. The idea is to provide content in a very simple pack. When you look at the Single cover, you can get the idea. All versions have various colors applied to them, so you can say 'balck version' or 'white version' without all that 'super-duper extended club badaboom remix by xxx'. The second song on the album will be called 'Song #2', so you already know the titles of all songs on the future album :D The album itself will be probably called 'Album #1'. I bet they'd call themselves 'Unknown Artist' if they didn't like the name Serebro this much. You can like it or not but that's the game they play.

Official site of the band is: www.serebro.su
It opened recently and you won't find too much information there tho.

Greg, they have material for the album already. The problem is that they planned to release it in 2008 but this ESC thing makes them change those plans. Max just played a game of making different songs from original one showing all the possibilities. Some of those aren't exactly remixes. The vocal line was sang in a different way and couple of versions actually include male vocals. It was done for the promo-CD and it doesn't mean they don't have new stuff planned.

Oh and some cute pics from Helsinki:

oh don't worry, i was being extremely facetious to see what response i'd get from the kid, and it was funny that he did almost exactly as i predicted (especially the corrected lyric, haha... oh how predictable, sorry... i just had to try (and i was drunk when i posted it)). "Titles are very important for an artist" bahh... tell that to Sigur Ros or almost any Printmaker...

I enjoy this whole nomenclature with their titles, it stripping things down to the basics, where are song is just a song... it's like that whole "Aristocrat" joke... where things have an extravagant title but don't really deserve it. Though i think they are doing that with their group name, i think "Untitled Group" would have been great too...

the thing about the remixes and versions i noticed was that some of them either seem to be pastiches of parodies or popular songs, not in their intrumentals but in the vocals, i remember thinking one was like nelly furtado's promiscous for example. I dunno if that was his intention but it really seems like he attempted something there.

Hey, but what about Marina and Olya? I heard that Marina was lead singer of "Formula". I dunno if Olya can sing. I hope all three of them will sing. I don't want them to be something like Pussycat Dolls. :bum:

Greg, I think we should not forget that we aren't talking about commercial single here. This CD was made for giving to interested professionals in Helsinki. I guess Max just took couple of styles he considers fashionable and showed they can do it. Like in 'you want Surgababes? here you are. rock for MTV kids? we can do this too' and so on. Plus he added couple of versions in styles he used for his previous projects (if I'm not mistaken, Blue version actually uses one of Glukoza's tracks, just vocals are different). And he also added a couple of versions that can be played in clubs. Looks like progmatic material made by one professional for other professionals. He didn't even count on big success I think. He made it quite clear that this project was meant for Asian market where there's much more space still.

crazy malchik
Both Marina and Olga have musical education and experience. Olga is professional dancer and she did back vocals for a while. Marina sang in Formula and recordered a couple of songs for soap opera here. I think the main reason it's Lena mostly in this song is that ESC is stressful and 2 other girls don't have much experience being on public. Being a producer I bet you'd put most of the work on someone you are confident with in this case. I heard them saying they do have other songs with girls sining more in earlier interviews and few days before the contest there was a report on them in Helsinki where Lena said 'I sing most of the song and I barely have enough breath for that, so I can't afford catching a cold'. She stressed 'this song' in that one, meaning it's not the case with all songs.

OMG, la aurora, stop, you're making me the happiest man alive! :o :rose: :love: (I love Serebro :D)Ok, don't stop, I wanna ask you one more thing: Olya looks so creepy. She has that cold look, not always but she's so creepy sometimes, and I get the feeling that she's so... like... coldhearted... Is she, is she? lol :bum:

Also, ppl, could someone upload songs one by one? I've downloaded them, they're great (I love the Silver version and Pink is awesome :D) and so, I put the link on my blog, but I got comments from people who have slow connections, and they couldn't download it, so I erased the whole promo CD link! Will anybody be so good and help me and my inocent blog? lol :(

crazy malchik,
it's hard to get an idea on personalities of 2 other girls. It's easier with Lena as I remember her from 4 years ago and can see where this or that comes from while these 2 are looking bit pale at the moment due to being put next to much more emotionally open and bright Lena who has also got much more experience when it comes to public attention. I guess they'll learn to be stars, they just need some time ;)

But from what I see now, no, I don't get impression on her being cold-hearted. I think some of it comes from her dancing career. She's been in it for 13 years and has some title actually meaning she was serious about that. You know what ballroom dancers are like... they have to keep that straight back all the time and look classy. Probably this is what gives you that impression. But at the moments she puts it down, she appears to be rather shy and soft. I'd say she's the least bitchy of 3 even.

And I'll see what I can do about the album. Will post links bit later probably

You don't have to help me with songs also, you helped me already a lot... But if you insist... lol

I'm trying to translate something... I think that the girls said that Marija is lesbian. Dunno. Wait. lol I'm dumb.

Ну, к тебе и Сербия подкатывала.

СЕР. - Но Сербия - это женщина. И я - не лесбиянка.

I think this means: Oh, but Serbia also flirted with you.

Ser. - But Serbia - she's a dyke. And I - am not lesbian.

УШ. – Она именно подкатывала?

СЕР. - Да, да. Катилась ко мне, катилась … но я попросила, чтобы эта дама прокатилась мимо меня. Я не хочу ни в коем случае оскорбить Сербию, потому что у меня очень много друзей из Сербии… И замечательная песня, и я рада за 1-ое место. Но вот конкретно к этой девушке из шкафа хотелось бы сказать, что мне было неприятно её внимание. И я не поняла этого формата общения.

She flirted good?

Ser. - Yes, yes. She tried with me, tried, but I asked, why does that lady try with me. I don't want to (I know the Serbian word, not English lol) Serbia in any case, because I have many friends form Serbia. And interesting song, and I'm glad it's 1st. But what I want to say about that girls concretly, is that her attention wasn't pleasant for me. And I didn't understand that format at all. lol

УШ. – Она не пыталась тебя поцеловать?

СЕР. - Может быть это и было попыткой поцелуя, когда она проходя мимо сделал мне в ухо «ВУУУУУУУУУУУ!», очень близко, практически прикасаясь. А что я могла сказать? Несколько не самых приличных слов, которые я сейчас не хочу говорить.

Did she try to kiss you?

Ser. - Maybe it happened, but not real kiss, when she sat next to me, and told me into my ear "Vuuuuuuuu", really close, practicly (something) What could I say? There were not acceptable words, which I don't want to say now.

УШ. – Но ты же видела, что она, какие только жесты не показывала, когда она выиграла.

СЕР. - Вы понимаете, вот в чем проблема, я не могу себе позволить сказать плохо про Сербию . у меня там друзья. Мне близка это страна. И поэтому мне очень тяжело от того, что мы не сошлись характерами непосредственно с солисткой.

But you also saw, that her, didn't show so much passion, when she danced?

You understand what's the problem, I can't allow myself to speak bad things about Serbia, I have friends there. That country is close to me. And I'm sorry because of that, our caracters didn't get along with the solo girl.

Ok, I'm stupid, but I'm trying, and trying! lol

crazy malchik
just saw they got tracks on the Temnikova's site. Check it out (http://www.elenatemnikova.com/site/serebro.htm).

Translation of bits you quoted:
Ну, к тебе и Сербия подкатывала.
СЕР. - Но Сербия - это женщина. И я - не лесбиянка.
Well, Serbian representative seemed to hit on you as well. (they talked about Turkish guy having a go on her before)
Lena: Yes, but Serbian representative was a woman and I'm not a lesbian.

УШ. – Она именно подкатывала?
СЕР. - Да, да. Катилась ко мне, катилась … но я попросила, чтобы эта дама прокатилась мимо меня. Я не хочу ни в коем случае оскорбить Сербию, потому что у меня очень много друзей из Сербии… И замечательная песня, и я рада за 1-ое место. Но вот конкретно к этой девушке из шкафа хотелось бы сказать, что мне было неприятно её внимание. И я не поняла этого формата общения.
Was she hitting on you really?
Lena: Yeah, yeah.. hitting on me, hitting.. but I asked this lady to hit something else. I really don't want to sound offensive to Serbia because I have many friends from there... And the song is wonderful and I'm happy for them winning. But if we talk about this concrete girl in the closet, I have to say I wasn't pleased with attention I got from her. I just didn't understand this format of interaction.

УШ. – Она не пыталась тебя поцеловать?
СЕР. - Может быть это и было попыткой поцелуя, когда она проходя мимо сделал мне в ухо «ВУУУУУУУУУУУ!», очень близко, практически прикасаясь. А что я могла сказать? Несколько не самых приличных слов, которые я сейчас не хочу говорить.
Dindn't she try to kiss you?
Lena: May be it was a kiss atempt, when she was passing me by she got really close, almost touching me and made a 'Wooooooo' into my ear. What could I say? A couple of not so polite words that I don't want to repeat now.

УШ. – Но ты же видела, что она, какие только жесты не показывала, когда она выиграла.
СЕР. - Вы понимаете, вот в чем проблема, я не могу себе позволить сказать плохо про Сербию . у меня там друзья. Мне близка это страна. И поэтому мне очень тяжело от того, что мы не сошлись характерами непосредственно с солисткой.
But you saw her reaction when she won and all those guestures she made.
Lena: You see, the problem is that I really can't allow myself to say anything bad about Serbia. I have friends there. I feel attracted to this country. And that's why it's really upsetting for me that we didn't really get along with their singer.

That's pretty much it. Zhenschina is 'a woman' not 'a dyke' really ;)

You know you're right. Getting online and making a post for the sole purpose of getting a heated response from someone to irritate them makes me the "kid". Whats childish is me saying something like this in response...

- You make a number of posts that are virtually the same i.e. correcting people for various things and debating.

oh wait, thats true though

I don't understand the facination of getting online to "predict" how people react to your posts. Even if they are made facetiously.

Please don't use a cover up that I am childish when I correct your wrong lyrics or give an opinion that contrasts your own. It's not that big of a deal.

Thats the purpose of the forum, to discuss and inform people. If my dicussion of the group bothers you, perhaps you need a new hobbie other than photoshop, touring Europe, and "predicting" childish posts.


I enjoy this whole nomenclature with their titles, it stripping things down to the basics, where are song is just a song... it's like that whole "Aristocrat" joke... where things have an extravagant title but don't really deserve it. Though i think they are doing that with their group name, i think "Untitled Group" would have been great too...

Really? I think it seems lazy. It's actually just something lazy IMO - that they hope people will over analyze and interpret as something artistic. Which is what has happened here.

- I also think it's rude that she's saying this Serbian woman was nothing other than a horny dyke basically.

Talyubittu,
it's really urs and Greg's business of course but the smart one is not the one that has the last word in an argument, the smart one is the first to stop it. Not giving advices or something, it's just random thoughts I've always been known having from time to time.

Serebro wasn't created yesterday. Fadeev really never tried to hide that he had some serious hopes on Lena and they've been trying to come up with project for her for long 3 years. The band itself is about 1 year old. I really think that even laziest person would find this time enough to come up with 10-15 titles. This project is obviously a dear one to Fadeev and if he goes for this concept, it means he wants to try different approach. Most of his project have a bit of experiemnting feeling about them and I don't see why it wouldn't be the case with this one.

Lena never said Serbian singer was a horny dyke. She said there was an accident and explained what happened exactly. I'm far from being homophobic.. very far actually but I must admit I wouldn't feel easy if someone did this to me. Marija is a nice singer and most likely a nice person but she does have that agressive butchiness in her and for girly girl it may seem being 'too much'. Political correctness was never Lena's strongest side, she grew up far from this big proper city and got used to openly expressing her feelings. But I've never really heard/seen her being rude for the sake of being rude, cool or scandalous.

I love Serebro, but I highly doubt it all happened the way she suggests it did. She comes from one of the most anti-gay countries in the entire world as far as their government is concered. I have nothing wrong with her expressing her feelings, but for that reporter to go on and on and for her to reply makes it look like Eurovision was nothing but a meat market for the Serbian woman.

I come from this wierd anti-gay country as well ;) Things are never as simple as they seem when you talk about 140 mln people together. We are a complicated mixture of cultures, religions, mentalities. We have our specific relationship with authorities, half of them we vote for the sake of fun without really trusting them to make our lives better. Our show-business if pretty interesting too. There's no gay taboo. I mean c'mon, our biggest stars of the begining of 21st century are Tatu and Zemfira (who's a lesbian icon in many ways). Nochniye Snaipery, Gosti iz Buduschego had impressive gay starts, 'Golubaya Luna' by Moiseev&Tribach was a major hit here that everyone still remembers, Kirkorov recordered a duet love-song with Sakis Rouvas. Audience loves that.

We don't really treat gays in the way civilized world does though. We are not too educated as society when it comes to this. For majority gays are fictional characters just like Mitrofanov for example (he's not a politician, he's has same value that some gay artists do, he's here to entertain). We don't really hate them, we just don't believe in them. And we don't see them in ourselves while often being more physically open than people on the West. I mean our commie leaders used to greet each other with kisses on the lips ;) Or look at Lena herself. You've seen that Green Room picture already, I guess and it's not the first time she's seen in situations with girls outsider would consider 'interesting', she just doesn't know it's a 'gay thing', for many of us it's pretty 'normal'.

This was a morning show on popular music radio. There were three hosts in their far from serious morning mood. It was all about gossip. In the same interview hosts were asking about a visit to american shaman and suggested that white sticky liquid they found in the dressing room was just demonstration of love from some fans. Lena is attractive young lady and the host asking about this situation was a straight male. I mean, being one, you don't often skip the opportunity to get juicy details on strories like this :p Marija being in show-business and being gay is nothing worth serious concern for us, it's part of entertainment.

P.S. I hope no one takes written above as offense. I was talking about things I see around me. It's a popular attitude here that I personally don't fully share.

News:
22 May 14.00 Moscow time Serebro girls will be having about 1 hour long online interview on one of the main mail & search sites (http://vision.rambler.ru/users/r-divan/1/112/) here. They will be answering questions people send.
To submit a question you need an account there. You can either register on your own or use the public one I made for ones getting lost with such things:
login: questiontoserebro
pass: tatysite

Serebro on 'Let them talk' show (russian) (http://www.serebro.su/files/video/2007.05.17.pust_govoryat/pust_govoryat_01_XviD_768x576.avi)
Lots of people talking bullshit as usual but girls look great :D I keep getting amazed how Mitrofanov always finds his ways to cheer for someone young and female. He's like the main Tatu fan of the country and now he's the the loudest supporter of Serebro girls. No wonder he doesn't have enough time to be a proper politician that actually try to solve problems of the country :p

Hightlights of the show:
- Fadeev watched the performance from toilet as it was the closest screen he could find
- By now they recieved over 7000 mails, some of those had serious offers from recording lables of UK, Greece, France and Italy. Fadeev is surprised as he didn't count on that but now he thinks they probably will give it a try and may be it works out fine for them there.

That's pretty much all actually. Rest was the usuall blah blah blah about the contest and how much we rock and that 3rd place for such a new band is a victory and that girls are hot.

Oh and in case someone wonders what happened at that 'horny hehehe from the audience' moment, it was the host asking girls how the first time in front of such big audience felt and would they compare it with a parachutte jump or first diving experience and Lena saying she does have some comparision but she feels shy about sharing it.

I'm bad at Russian, but I think the girls said that they don't want to appear on ESC anymore. Wait... I'll quote it, maybe I'm not right! ;)

Edit:

УШ. Ну, если было бы 1-ое место, вернулись бы. Но это еще впереди. Или 2 раза не выпускают на Евровидение?

СЕР. - Нет, ну это как-то глупо. Вот Дима Билан в этом году очень хотел поехать. Хотел, хотел и перехотел.

УШ. - А почему не поехал?

СЕР. - Ну, это глупо мне кажется.

What about are they talking about? I think they're talking about... Hm, this guy is asking them would they appear on ESC 2 times, and they say no, because it's stupid. And also they say that Dima Bilan also wanted to go this year, I believe. He wanted, wanted and over wanted... And the guys asks them why didn't he go, and one of the girls, I believe it's Lena answers "It's stupid for me to say".

Were I right? :gigi: Lolz! :laugh:

thanks for the info, saved me a whole ... what? 3mb, haha... it's a good song though i think the vocals in the chorus can be a bit... i dunno, pitchy? haha. But the synth is rocking... it makes me wonder what the furthur sound of Serebro will be.

19-05-2007, 22:14
lol Greg, I remember seeing Lena training this chorus with one of the 'teachers', was quite a hysterical moment actually as she convinced herself she couldn't hit 'iiiiii' together with 'beg'. Looked like 'a shrink and his patient' scene with some even higher pitch desperation sounds lol The sound in this one is quite typical for Fadeev but I have really no idea what he goes for when it comes to this project.

crazy malchik,
last line is 'Well it's stupid, I think' ;)
Mmm.. *tries to remember what they said about it before* I guess their idea is that doing it 2 years in a row is stupid :D But if things go well for them they may consider going again somewhere later in the future to have some fun and win the thing.
Doubt this will happen, really.

If I compare the various projects of Fadeev, I have difficulties to find the typical Fadeev-sound. It looks as if he understands to find the sound, which suits best for his artist.

In the case of Serebro I would say,Temnikova is the 'character' of the project. I have never understood, why he needs that blondie (thanks for the links to her songs as proof for her very average talent) and this failed governess, who quite unsuccessfully try to catch up with Lena. If she is not good enough on her own, these two additions don't look as a big gain.

Well, I am curious too, which sound he got for her (and the appendices :rolleyes: ).

quite average, but i quite like "na polchasa"... val, do you know who wrote it? (to me, the lyrics are very cute... hahaha, i understand most of it... which is sweet)

And yes, it's hard to find a similarity between Linda and Glukoza, or Savicheva and Monokini or Total... he's an amazing producer and song writer (a... по моему..haha) so i'm really looking forward to this new project

20-05-2007, 03:21
here's the proper list with links to all songsIt's a great idea to make so many versions, they should do that for all their songs, lol. I didn't like the ESC version but i do like the Yellow version, sounds like Cascada, it would surely work well in North/Central/Western Europe, i also like the White one and the Vinous one. The Grey Timbaland-like one is probably not the right direction for them, haha, i don't think that Russian girls can convincingly play hip-hop bitches.

They have good potential, with a good album, the right choice of "color version", hot videos and proper promotion, they could be the Russian girlband that replaces Tatu in European charts.

Funny. I also think that Yulia from Tatu has average talent. She's nothing special. Of course, she is for us, but I mean... she has that rough voice, it's not so rough but... You know. But cuz we love Tatu, we don't pay attention. I acctually love Yulia's voice, but live. Marina is like you've said average singer, but in my opinion, Yulia's not better than her.

Actually I'm not talking about singing skills. The best music I've ever heard, was sung by people, who are not really good singers. It's the way they are present, they express themselves, how they make you feel the song, and if I hear Marina, it's simply flat. Yulya has a weak singing technique, but she gives every song 'character', even those, which she doesn't like. That's the difference between artistical talent and 'plain cooking'.

la aurora
21-05-2007, 00:02
Argos,
mmm let me try to define what 'Fadeev-style' is.
I'd say he's not really much of composer, first of all. You don't really see him writing complicated rememberable melodies with key-change. He usually goes for something quite simple and does his magic with arrangement and presentation. Even his pop catchy songs are based mostly on juicy beats and repetition rather than on melody. This was the case with his famous Jagga-jagga and it actually true for Song 1 too.
His style is pretty moody, mysterious and somewhat cold. He delivers quality material that puts you into some mood and his songs are easier to understand with your brain than with your heart. Hard to explain really but I hope you get what I mean.
His songs almost always have some beat going on, often quite dark and melancholic. He also doesn't mind mixing in a bit of oriental influence in music and image of the artist. That was the case with his Linda, Total or his own stuff. Something like Sky-Blue version of Song 1.
He doesn't really go for good vocalists in classic sense. Most of his songs have quite a calm almost melody-free versus and simple melody in the chorus, often quite screamed rather than sang (not tatu-like, softer usually).
Of course it's not the same for all his artists. He's a smart producer after all, almost mathematically smart. He knows all about music formats and how to deliever what audience will buy. He doesn't like cheap scandals our stars love so much. His weapon is 'hooks'. He's a master of those.
Well, probably it will be easier to get with proper example. I mean, who can be more 'Fadeev-ish' that Fadeev writing for himself :D
YouTube: Maxim Fadeev - Leti za mnoy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vn4UQjiopCI) or mp3 (http://www.sendspace.com/file/j74gvu)
love the song btw ^.^

When it comes to 'appendices', I really wouldn't be so harsh ;)
First of all those 3 songs I posted were all I could find on Marina but they were never meant to be original. It was a soundtrack to a soap opera about young girl from province that comes to conquire the world of show-business. Those songs were written specially for the show, not for the band Formula Marina was in and she couldn't be really special even if she wanted. There was a number of singers doing tracks for tha main character and they had to sound similar enough, meaning 'average'.
Fadeev doesn't really look for artists. He makes them of people matching him on personal level, being close enough to his personal waves, so he can work with them.
Temnikova was pretty bright from the beginning but not in the right way. She was jumping from reserved self-hating state to super hyper and loud one. Fadeev always saw great potential in her and sympathized her on personal level but she was getting heavy bashing on every commision they had. He did a lot of work trying to turn an absolutely childish and uncontrolable village girl into a classy urban young lady. Result really shows even if she loses it still from time to time lol I bet these 2 girls are coming through something like that as well now. Temnikova had an early start when it comes to this and she has enough experience to be in the center of attention while other 2 don't. It's still pretty much 'work in the progress' as they had to go on air almost a year earlier than planned.
Yes of course Lena could go solo but who needs just another solo female singer, we have loads of such here. Max wants a product that sells. It seems the idea was 3 anime-looking girls in modest cover but with a lot of sex inside working on professional level that's rare here. Max still experiemnts a lot with them and I'm curious what comes out in the end. Temnikova looks, behaves and sings differently now. I bet other 2 girls will too with time and their role will become more important. I believe Lena will remain the leader tho as it's just hard to over-shine her and the project was made for her in the first place but I believe it'll get less obvious.

Greg,
I really doubt names will be any familar for you. Soundtrack for this show was composed by Skripkin (http://skripkiny.ru). There's a list of authors for all songs on the site but it seems down at the moment :( Anyway, I don't remember seeing any name I knew there.

Thank you, la aurora for your explanation, helped me much to understand the phenomenon Fadeev.

On topic Serebro. I've watched the clips of their appearances during the time of the contest and the difference between Lena and the others became even more clear to me. She acts, takes the initiative, pays attention to the cameras and makes a little show, whenever there is an opportunity, without looking pestering. The others more or less behave like decoration.

Quite interesting too, their body language, how Olga and Marina often try to hide behind her shoulders, regularly 20 cm behind her. I didn't find a single scene, where they tried to show their personality. It may be shyness of beginners, but I believe, it's more - they are not addicted to limelight. I hope this group will not be a second 'Pussycat Dolls' with one artist and the rest, well for people who need to look at various gorgeous girls for ...

la aurora
21-05-2007, 23:08
Argos,
not really arguing, just giving some more ideas to analyze ))

Lena was getting attention since early age. Performing at every school party, being on various contests. At the age of 17 when she got into FZ project, she wasn't someone totally new and you'd think that having prettyful face, charming smile, tons of energy, nice young little voice and all that experience, she'd easily become one of the leaders. Did it happen? No, absolutely. She got lost, not any better than these 2 girls now, worse actually )) She was getting to perform from time to time and do it in a cute way, but not really showing any initiative. She was shy, kind, childish, lazy.. and in critical moments - overhyper and funny like in 'if I'm not serious, they can't seriously judge me'. Producers saw talent in her and tried to help her to discover it in herself, audience was saving her with voting as she was 'nice' personality and looks wise and would do something terribly cute or touching from time to time. Like a puppy that sleeps most of the day and minds his business and then someone brings it into the room and everyone goes 'aww' for a moment and then forgets again. Believe it or not but she was one of the most forgettable kids in there, many of ones that left project earlier were brighter and if not this ESC thing, they'd be much more remembered than Lena.

Savicheva was in that one as well and she was.. mmm.. well.. disasterous lol Her first performance will probably be remembered as the most rediculous number on FZ ever. And overall she was clumsy, unconfident, pale and almost personality-free. But she got a couple of really good songs & performances by the end. Max was kind to her as she worked with him before doing back-vocals for Linda. When in 2004 she was out of blue chosen by Channel 1 for ESC, she was so pale and not ready that Max didnt even bother to show up for the show. He let Ch1 guys do whatever they thought was right and then got to work and turn Yulia in what she is now.

Later Temnikova took part in another show called Last Hero. It was 24/7 camera thing about intrigues on far from civilization island. And once again she was very kind and cute but absolutely no fighter. I don't even know why she went there. She refused to make any plots against people, she'd sit there hugging her friend Mona (Monokini-girl) and would get all teary and sad everytime someone was leaving. Other participants didn't even bother to vote her out early because she was absolutely no threat and they knew it.

Temnikova we see now is totally different. I keep wondering if having those 2 other girls around is actually what changed her (besides getting 4 years older and more experienced of course). Probably she feels that she has to work for all 3 now, she has this responsibility now and no one to hide behind. It's not just her own life that depends on her, she has to work for Max who trusts in her and for 2 other girls that are even in worse position than she was in the beining of FZ, as they had less attention before and suddenly found themselves in front of millions. She's being very protective. It shows actually. Have you noticed the nudge Olya recieved in the begining of their ESC performance (like'wake up, all is fine' one)? Or she demanded Malakhov to take hands off Marina in one of the recent interviews (lol ok, that was rather rude, but he sooo deserved the himuliation she put him through). She tries to cheer them up all the time and they seem pretty close. Probably she saw something in Olya when suggested her to Fadeev, and Fadeev himself had to see something too.

I do see progress already btw. They stayed behind Lena during ESC preparations time, they hid behind her in Helsinki. But in recent shows they seem to open up a bit. The stress of ESC is gone and they actually try to talk (journalists concentrate their attention on Lena mostly tho). And on that MTV 'Fashion guide (http://www.elenatemnikova.com/Video/GidMTV.wmv)' program when they had to deal with someone who doesn't speak russian the difference wasn't really that noticeble. All 3 looked excited and tried those shoes on. 2 'appendices' actually got more into converstation as they seem to have better english skills than Lena. I won't be surprised to see 'tatu situation' with time (the one when Yulia is so active during interviews in russian that Lena gets very few attention but then in english ones Lena does most of it). Or may be they go in their own way.

Time will show. Bit too early to make judgements here.

Argos
22-05-2007, 22:57
Thanks again for your information, la aurora.

In FZ-2 Lena was certainly too young and immature, but that's the proof for Fadeev's instinct that he picked her, had patience with her and maybe he has found the right girl. Your judgement, that being the big sister for her co-performers triggered her quite fast personal development, is certainly true. She has a duty and responsibility now, something worth for fighting.

There are reports that Serebro is about to sign a contract with Sony, so there is not much time to accustom to the fact that they are stars now. This also means, that Olga and Marina will have to hurry to catch up with Lena. Hopefully they have a good start of their international career!

About Savicheva. I've seen her dancing not worse than today in Linda's 'Sdelaj tak'-video and singing enchantingly in 'Nikogda' and you expect that she would be a great artist a few years later, but there is not really much development since then. Great songs, weak performances, not much personality. What a pity.

la aurora
22-05-2007, 23:39
Argos,
there are quite a lot of rumors about contracts at the moment but I guess we should take them as just that - rumors. I'll post some translation of bits of interview they had today a bit later but they confirmed getting a lot of pretty interesting offers. Information on this issue is secret tho, so whatever information circulates in Internet at the moment, it comes from neither Fadeev or girls.

Seems 2-4 hours of sleep a day, ESC and post-ESC stress are having their effect. Heat in Moscow doesn't help either. Olga is sick at home at the moment, Lena looks pale, exhausted and very tired. Marina seems to be doing the best of three. Seems she almost got used to this attention and during the appearences they had this last week, she looks relaxed, smiles and helps Lena with interviews quite a lot.

so, i have to admit i havent read this whole thread, but just couple of bits here and there and i wanna know - why Elena said she isnt a lesbian, but was photographed making out with one of the other two at eurovision? just out of curiosity - is that like 'im not a lesbian i love women.. i love to make out with them?' or what?

lol Yeah, Cools. That nick has your copyrights on it, I believe.

Now when it comes to you question, I guess it's the case of 'I don't know what lesbian is but I'm sure I'm not that' which is pretty typical for russian girls I must say lol You see, that time in ESC wasn't really a publicity stunt or smth as it wasn't first time. Whenever I saw her on screen in other 2 shows she took part in, she'd be sitting with hands around some girl and never got to flirt with boys around much. Probably she just trusts girls more in general, feels more comfortable around them and finds all that physical contact and playful behavior pretty natural. She's probably not aware that some people can consider such things gay and for her doing stuff and saying she's straight at the same time doesn't look strange lol

whatever you are on up there in moscow... i want some... and give me some to give to my biggest crush - a straight girl! :lol: ... or is it in the air


funny you say that though - i was reading something about eurovision, dont remember what and where but it was about how #1 serbia is pretty surely gay, #2 ukraine was GAY, #3 Russia.. someone mentioned that Elena is rumoured to be gay.. or that she is very very GIRL friendsly in that way... :gigi: Gayovision

I still dont buy into that - i make out with girls and fondle them but i am straight, i mean girls in bulgaria do that as well... but not all the time and when there is a boy they want they are doing the same and more to him.... so, i need to see pics of Lena with boys, now... or else i am coming to Russia to find her :gigi:

p.s. can you post pics of her making out/hugging girls? or even better VIDEO! LoL
oh and i wanted to add that the blonde one is kinda sexy as well.. not quite as much as lena, but there is something sassy about her - whats her name again?

la aurora
24-05-2007, 06:42
Well u see, the main problem now is that they are like 22-24, hyper 24/7 and at the same time have absolutely no time for boys. And all 3 live together. You never know what happens in critical situations like this lol probably they just need some physical contact and that's why if someone was to have investigation on their sexual orientation he'd be a happy person, as really there's hardly any evidenses their are straight now.

Pics with boys:
1. Isn't he georgeous (http://www.eg.ru/LoadedImages/IMG_2006-03-14-temnikova4.jpg)? lol Tabloids published some sexy story with him telling about how great it was and that he really wants to do it again
2. This guy (http://www.eg.ru/LoadedImages/IMG_2006-03-14-temnikova3.jpg) was her husband for whole few weeks
And that's all :bum: All other pics are with girls and there are no even ex-boyfriend stories as her teachers and parents say she was too busy with singing to have them in Kurgan (and that was up to like 17 years old?)

I'll look for girls material you requested lol Too bad it's really hard when it comes to FZ footage. All available from her less hot days is pretty much is bad quality (smth like this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qz5yvJTnt_M))

The blond's name is Marina and it's wierd that it was Olga Lena was caught with because they seem being much more closer with blond one usually.

thanks for the info... waiting for more links with girls :lalala: and man, she was such a VILLAGE girl! LoL .. so its ok, how long has she bin in moscow? give her a little more time in the big bad city and the lesbian in her will totally come out.. i mean, if i was a gay girl deep in the russian village (Kurgan, i have to admit i had to look up where that was.... and Yekaterinburg i know, thats the closest i know) i would be straight as well .... she has definitelly gotten way better looking lately... she wasnt when she was in the fabrika zvezd....

Probably they don't teach good english in Kurgan lol Especially to ones that don't even attend classes much. Olga is an interpreter by education and I guess she sucks in english with background like this.

And yeah, Lena was something at FZ :D Fadeev was going crazy over her village habbits. 5 years in Moscow had effect tho, it seems. And nah, she was really cute in FZ project, it's pitty there's no better footage. But she definitely wasn't sexy, she was a kid. She herself can't see those vids now without feeling ashamed lol

'Last Hero' show. Eating shit, no cosmetics and close to unbearable sun amount don't make people glamouros but still that island looked like a nice place to spend vacation on :D

It's frustrating what an idiot she was there tho. I mean majority of girls flashed every bit of their bodies in bikinis and played those 'oh, I don't see camera is watching, where's my sexy soap' games and this one managed to stay clothed, refused to make intrigues and actually worked in the camp. I mean why do you even go to such show if you aren't going to run around naked and being an ass :rolleyes:

And now the main object of investigation - relationships :p

Husband [1 (http://forum.1tv.ru/index.php?act=Attach&type=post&id=2490001)] [2 (http://www.kp.ru/upimg/photo/71206.jpg)] [3 (http://www.kp.ru/upimg/photo/32770.jpg)]
Wierd story, really. 10 years difference, nothing passionate going on in the house, 'just close friends with with strong emotional and intellectual bond' before marriage and 'couple seeing each other 3-4 times a year' right after it. Tabloids give a lot of versions on what happened but however you look at it, it's wierd.

FZ 'gilfriends'

Polina Gagarina [1 (http://lena-poli2003.narod.ru/index.files/friend08.jpg)] [2 (http://lena-poli2003.narod.ru/index.files/friend04.jpg)] [3 (http://lena-poli2003.narod.ru/index.files/friend06.jpg)] They were pretty close friends, as you may see and it was the longest story as they both made it to the final of the show (3rd was Terleeva) and Polina won it in the end. But no, it's not really anything if we believe this small video (http://www.temnikova.com.ru/Video/Gaga_o_Temny.wmv) shot a while after the project ended. Polina has cameras at her place, shows them photographs she has on the table and one of those is a pink frame with a pic of being kissed by Temnikova inside and sweet 'love u' signature. As Polina says, they love each other a lot.. just hihihi don't think it's in that way.

Evgeniya Rasskazova [1 (http://www.rasskazova.ru/foto/picture-123.jpg)] [2 (http://www.rasskazova.ru/foto/GR_102.jpg)] Just another very close friend from FZ house. So close, that they actually got to live together after the show renting an appartment for two. Could very well be that hot brunette Temnikova showed up on MTV with and jokingly introduced as her 'girlfriend and lover she couldn't cheat' to the admin of her Ch1 forum. But then.. it could be another brunette as well, she got quite a lot of those around.

Elena Terleeva [1 (http://forum.1tv.ru/index.php?act=Attach&type=post&id=2387951)] [2 (http://forum.1tv.ru/index.php?act=Attach&type=post&id=2387962)] Ok, not really. There was some girly hugs action going on but nothing too special, I just like the pics :D

Post-FZ girlfriends

Mona [1 (http://www.elenatemnikova.ru/site/photo/NY2005-4.jpg)]. That's the Monokini girl - another project of Fadeev. They seem to be partying together a lot and they were around each other all the time they could at 'Last Hero' show.

Nastya [1 (http://img.feels.ru/uploads/foto/1125/04.jpg)] [2 (http://www.elenatemnikova.ru/site/photo/IkaDR130905g2.jpg)] Now this is the girl Lena's been attending every party and show with lately.

Serebro
Now that they live together since January and got really close friends, they seem really comfortable with each other. You've seen that Green Room pic, here's another one called 'Olya+Lena+Thee Dress (http://news.mail.ru/pic/35/70/35214_source.jpg)'. There's ass grabbing (http://www.sendspace.com/file/vfyrch) going, getting too busy staring at each other (http://www.sendspace.com/file/ppys8j) to remember it's an interview and you have to listen to questions, grabing each other's legs (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ad2pWHFbJmI) saying 'it's the first time I feel like doing it' and looking all 'it's sooo not', having some relaxed working atmoshpere (http://www.sendspace.com/file/0s2jrl) in the studio...

But really, all above doesn't mean much. Staright girls do such things all the time.

Some other things deserve more attention tho. Sexual orientation is obviously an exiting topic. She keeps playing 'lovers' or even calling them that jokingly, never misses a chance to catch the host on meaning something he/she never meant, repeating she's not that and at the same time sounding excited talking about Marija for example and then getting to look completely bored when hosts asks about attention they got from some guy there. But then.. it's all something straight girl could do.

The wierdest thing tho is all that 'I love men so much' game. She says playful compliments to near every male host but the moment the guy gets too close, she either looks all uncomfortable or gets rude like it was in High Ligue when she openly demanded not to touch her and Marina. It's all cool but if you have this immense love for men that you express whenever you get a chance, wouldn't it make sense to have at least 1-2 next to you? 'I don't have time for them' is quite a lame excuse.

So I can believe:
1) She's gay and she knows it but doesn't show
2) She's gay and doesn't admit it even to herself
3) She's straight but not even close to as active as she tries to seem and all girls are around just because she feels safe with them

The only thing I fail to believe is her being what she obviously tries to look like :D

Ok, I must admit putting this all together was too gay even for me :rolleyes:

Agreed! Thugh i tend to think it is 1 or 2 ... either way, thank god shes movoed from the village ... hopefully she is around in some time to show us if she is 1 or 2


Ok, I must admit putting this all together was too gay even for me :rolleyes:

i just saw the vids, i dont know - i havent seen that much of her to be sure, sometimes it looks like weird PR (sort of like tatu) ... I will look up more (of course, feel free to share all serebro you want :D )
I mean, i forgot if i said it that its similar in BG and girls act similarly all the time and they are usually straight girls doing it, so its hard to say, but usually as you said there are boys around..

I dont know who their producer is, i am not following Russian pop scene (share with us? ) ... is he the new Shapavalov? LoL could that explain the PR - thought that's been said and done, i doubt they will try the same trick.. seems ODD.. wait just finished the last video where Maxim is talking about how it is a band for the world not russia, maybe he thinks that would sell AGAIN... LoL... at least they arent 14

No, Cools lol Unfortunately. But I'm working on that ;) Just waiting for her to get divorced with her wierd husband for goddamn sake. They never 'rememebered, knew how to find each other and had time' for it. But I bet management is busy with it now :D

And nah, I really don't think it's 1 :( I believe it's 2 in the best case, probably 3 with a bit of 2 in the mix. If she was and she knew she was, she'd pay more attention I guess and be more careful expressing herself. Looks like she believes she's straight and that it's so obvious that nothing she does can ruin that straight image. I mean probably she's even right. She's been enjoying her time in the Green Room with Olga and in people's eyes managed to stay that straight girl harrased by gay Marija lol

And nah, I don't think the way girls interact is any kind of PR. I mean Temnikova did it since forever. Probably it's just a habbit, result of being over-emotional and need to feel comforted, something a child who doesn't think much about what's cool and what's not and just goes and gets kind of attention he wants does. We'll see what time and stardome changes in them but till now, Temnikova at her 22 was much more childish than Yulia and Lena at their 15-16, they have different backgrounds. Btw, I'm pretty sure quite a lot of things Tatu girls did were also not PR ;) It was what was coming out of their mouths that was obvious PR, some choreography and kisses for the camera, rest of the 'magic' was a natural interaction of 2 girls that live and work with each other for so long, trust each other and look for support in each other.

Their producer is Max Fadeev and no, he's not Shapovalov for sure :p I mean unlike Ivan, Max's success doesn't rely on luck this much. He's around since mid 90ies (Mama-ma-marihuana.. we soo were singing this in school, was a breath of fresh air in this post-soviet show-business) and he actually managed to 'save' some hopeless material more than once. Plus he's actually a musician, he writes songs for his artists and some other too and he sings a bit better than Ivan :D He also does have lack of politeness at times and he's open for experiements but in addition to that he's a pro, he's a brand and he's in demand. I wrote more about him here (http://forum.tatysite.net/showpost.php?p=353693&postcount=39).

He's too smart to seriously count on the world buying another pseudo-lesbians from Russia. His idea was much more pragmatic: Russian artists sell in Asia pretty well (some of those we don't buy here lol), that market have enough space for new names. Tatu sold more albums than The Beatles, Via Gra girls did pretty well too. Lesbian issue doesn't have there the kind of effect it has on the West. It's not that much of a scandal, it's not always '100% yes' or '100% no' there, if you saw some anime you get what I mean. Small fragile girls with big eyes, pale skin, emo-hairstyle and proper make-up & clothing - that's the image they admire in the cartoons they create and this image is so much easier to re-create working with eauropean face-type material. Add some attitude, make sure they ooze sex, think of proper branding and compensate lack of scandal with teaching the girls to move and sing.. equipe them with eye-candy videos and up-to-date catchy sound and here you have you small perfectly planned project for specific region of the world :rolleyes: Then it gets much easier to get a contract with some big lable like Universal and all this is already some ground for promotion in 'mother' Russia, where 3 russian girls are nothing new and singing in english doesn't help selling stuff either. Absolutely pragamtic plan, I'd say.

This ESC thing made them change plans a bit. It wasn't really a risk as 3 sexy russian girls that can move and hit at least every 2nd note, with modern charts material song.. with all our neighbours.. really, top10 was garanteed, top5 was very likely and that' already 'success' and big media attention in Russia. And that's the goal. Rest is just a nice addition. They saw they are up to standards enough, they got lots of nice suggestions and they'll most likely try them out, but any moment they can go back to original plan and still be commercially successful. It's a win-win situation, no wonder professionals call him 'genious Fadeev' here lol

I mean why do you even go to such show if you aren't going to run around naked and being an ass :rolleyes:
Is it possible that it wasn't her decision but Max'? The participation at this psycho-camp could be good for her personal development, getting harder, bringing out the fighter in her, which is definitely desirable for a person in show-business.
1) She's gay and she knows it but doesn't show
2) She's gay and doesn't admit it even to herself
3) She's straight but not even close to as active as she tries to seem and all girls are around just because she feels safe with them
Maybe
4) She's straight, but has a big problem with the male gender and/or sexuality.
I know another Lena, who is not much different in that matter. Her 'affection' to girls could be her tactics to keep boys away. She refused to show her sexuality in FZ and PG, not really promising success in showbiz for a woman. Now she has learned to be very sexy but also to keep men at distance.

Lena being childish - I don't buy that. She has proved herself very professional and responsible. I have already admired her perfect appearances at ESC, so no repetition here. Normally you see this with people who are at least a decade in the business and so far I didn't find this behaviour with Max' other proteges. I would say she has a natural gift in that respect combined with a very mature view on things around her.

The childishness could be her strategy to become 'impregnable', for advances from men and - much more important, for criticism. Young artists make many mistakes, but you forgive her "Look, she is still such a child, and sooo sweet!" She produces a strong emotional connection between herself and the people who have to judge her and makes them biased. The teachers in school, the viewers in FZ, the competitors in PG and now the media, and of course Max. I have the suspicion, she is an ingenious manipulator.

Well it could be of course and may be there wasn't much reasoning behind that. That episode of the show was called 'Stars vs Heros' and it was young generation of stars playing against people who took part in the show before. It happened so that Heros had experienced 'stars' in their team as they took part in it before and whole 'Stars' team was basicly made up from Star Factory kids. Lena was not the only Fadeev's project in there. He FZ-mate Irakli was in there too, her friend Mona too. Lena had tough 3 years after FZ show, they were pretty full of nothingness. She was Fadeev Producing Center's artists with salary, but it was something like 'lets pretend we are working' thing. Max could send her there just to get busy or she could go voluntary out of boredome to have some vacation with her friends. She was adventuros enough to do it for the sake of fun.

Maybe

Isn't that something like my N3 or N3 + a bit of N2 mixed in? :bum:
You see, some people are shy... and Lena did have her excuse not to deal with some issues when she was young. She's still using that 'I don't have time for them' excuse actually, nothing really changed here. And with years it gets only harder to change things. When you are 10, you don't care much and you are allowed to do stupid things. When you are 20 and you realize you really don't know how to deal with things that seem natural to other girls, it really can give this sick feeling. People expect you to behave in some particular way, to know things, to have some experience and you don't really know how to. And this doesn't really stop you from feeling lonely a lot and needing some contact. She doesn't have her mother here or her funny dog and it's much easier to open up to girls who you don't consider sexual objects because you were raised up thinking they can't be that. And learning to 'show' sexuality is just kind of self-defense, it doesn't really help with solving the issue. I don't really believe in gayness, for me it's always a combination of things, it's more complicated than just hormones or beliefs. But it really does seem to me that at this moment of her life she does find physical contact with girls more comfortable than with males.

Lena being childish - I don't buy that. She has proved herself very professional and responsible. I have already admired her perfect appearances at ESC, so no repetition here.

Why do you equal childishness and unprofessionalism? :p Sometimes they can go together very well. You see, music is her main desire in this life. She's been in various contests since a very young age. Some things you just go and do because you kow how to do them and you love doing them. There in Star Factory she broke all rules possible in the house. She'd make fun of orders she was getting, do exactly the opposite, then get all depressed asking why don't they nominate her if she's as bad as they seem to think. But then she'd go on stage and become a totally different person.
I find it hard to draw a line between childishness and maturity at times. Same people often have a bit of both in them. I myself was very mature by the age of 10 when it comes to some things. I was fully aware of some of my destructive talants like seeing people's weak points very fast and back then I already knew how wrong it would be to use this advantage. I also had a very adult view on love and friendship for example, something I don't feel ashamed of even now. And at the same time now when I'm 24 I still completely fail to be more mature than 6yo when it comes to some other things :D
She is mature when it comes to her profession, ideas on what's good and what's bad but she doesn't seem to have same maturity when it comes to some other things. She often shows more emotions that mature person would, often says things that mature person would think twice about, often does things mature person would feel ashamed doing. Manipulator? Probably. She does know the effect she has on people. But I've yet to see bigger manipulator than 6yo kid. Where's the line, really?

Not quite, more a N3 with some androphoby, but no homosexuality.

Why do you equal childishness and unprofessionalism? :p
That's a thing of definition. To be childish is a sign of a regression to an earlier behaviour and often contradicts with responsibility (and therefore to professionality, too). Being childlike means conserving the child in us, and that's essentional for an artist, not to give up the view and feeling of a child, and this is absolutely professional, even if it means that sometimes you make yourself ridiculous. There is a fine line though and some artists definitely didn't get it ( Michael Jackson).

So far I haven't seen much of her, only a few appearances at FZ and the ESC coverage, not enough to have a firm opinion, but what I saw is, that she can use her emotions quite consciously and sometimes even observes the effectiveness on the audience. Hard to decide whether everything is real emotion or just pretending.

I just read that a singer called Nikolaj Noskov told media that Serebro didn't sing themselves on ESC, but the back-vocalists probably sang their parts. I didn't expect that the 'biting in the others's calf' would begin so early. Ok, now we know what for the background singers were. :D

I guess there's no real ground for an argument here. We seem to see similar things, we just call them differently. For me androphoby or whatever you call it can actually be one of many things that form one's homosexuality. I just don't believe in last term per se.
Same goes for childishness. For me this means just having and using lack of boundaries adults often force on themselves.

Rambler uploaded an interview (http://vision.rambler.ru/users/r-divan/1/112/) for those who missed live stream. It's a streaming video about 1h long and 166MB. It was a week ago actually but thought I'd post when I have some bits translated.

So here's the summary and translation of some bits (transcripting and translating all would be too crazy even for me :p )

Must say in advance that the host was soo sickly sweet at times that Lena was loosing it, making all kinds of faces and mcoking her from time to time lol I also wonder how much of it is bullshit but well, it does have some informational value anyway.

Eurovision Song Contest
They really didn't seem too informed on the issue. Lena said she never watched it, Marina watched and remembered 2006 year contest and she still listens to Romanian song.
They were told it was a contest of freaks. They were told it's political and you don't win it without someone above giving you a permission to.
When asked about what they thought about fairness of voting and would they change it, they said they aren't really in position to decide here. They have no reasons to complain as they came 3rd and are very happy with result and that there are people, professionals responsible for the rules and they know better.
They also believe Russian form of pre-selection is a right one as professional jury always knows better and in 2005 we saw a perfect example of it when jury's favourite Bilan came second and Podolskaya went to represent our country. They do think Natalia is a talented girl but if jury said it should be Bilan, they guy should go. He did a year later and difference between 2nd place and 15th is pretty obvious.
They did hear some names of their rivals in pre-selection process, they found out after the contest but they didn't hear songs and they feel bit uneasy talking about it as they weren't really trying too hard to win that one, it was more of 'you have to go' - 'ok' thing and they feel bad about it.
They aren't 100% satisfied with their performance and they think it would be really bad if they were. They believe in half a year they'll be much better already. They also said were they sent 1 year later, it would probably be easier for them and more fair to russian audience as they'd have at least some idea on who represents them at the contest but still they are very happy with getting such a start and they are thankful for people who gave them this chance. But at the same time they understand people who didn't believe in them because audience really didn't know who they were and there were all reasons to expect them to get nervous and bomb.
They don't want to discuss the time our representative was announced as they'd have to blame someone for giving them just 1 month for everything and they don't really want to. They were given a chance and it was up to them to use it properly.
They wouldn't go there again as they believe it would be stupid. They also don't think it's a good idea to send well-established stars. There are many young, stage and experience-hungry new names in this country and they do need a chance much more.

Helsinki experience
Lena said she wouldn't go there again but that it had nothing to do with people who were quite nice. She just felt the city didn't really 'accept' her. Cold and wet climate had a bad effect on her and she almost lost her voice fully by the time of the final performance. It was pretty cold, so they had to buy warm clothes there and they constantly had red noses.
Another thing they had issues with was food. They found some 'selyodka' (herring?) a pretty much wierd choice for breakfast.
Their main concern in arena was sound. They didn't seem to understand each other with sound directors too well and as there were 2 people responsible for that, sometimes fixing things was taking really long and they had different sound on every reherasal they had. This technical issue was their biggest fear on the night as they were afraid to once again get the sound in earplugs too quite but they felt relieved when heard it in the begining of performance. It was once again different but it was ok.

Serebro past and future
They really did visit some shaman in South America not long before going to Helsinki. He and Fadeev know each other for a while. And he has this theory of every person having the animal he can relate with. It's quite rare but all 3 happened to be some 'cats'. Lena is a Panther, Marina - Jaguar and Olga - Puma. They think those animals really are like them, they have their amulets and that's where band's logo comes from.
They indeed got a lot of nice offers there in Helsinki but they can't talk about it at the moment.
They don't know exact dates yet but they believe the album will be released somewhere in the end of 2007 - beginning of 2008 and their next song will come out pretty soon.

Bits of the interview (not in proper order probably):

Host: Is there any ritual you have before going on stage together?
Lena: You know, we don't have one yet. It was our first serious stage appearance. It was funny actually. We really didn't know what to do and what to say to each other. We just took each other's hands and said: 'Girls... let's not think about having 120 millions of people watching us... about our friends and parents that are all nervous for us at the moment... about having such huge country as Russia behind our backs.. we represent Russia.. yeah.. and people are worried... really, let's not think about all this and just go on stage and sing, ok?' Then we laughed at how hard it really was not to think about those things when they call you and ask if you fully realize responsibility you took when agreed to represent this country at Eurovision. It really felt a bit wierd at that moment. It was our first time and we didn't have any habbits or rituals. But we are sure we'll get some with time and we'll tell you about that.



Lena: Realization of the fact we came third came not earlier than 24 hours after the contest. Because there was this all this stress. We weren't too nervous but we were worried that we may get bad sound in our ear-monitors. That kept us stressed a bit but when we went there and heard the sound, we were relieved. It all felt a bit wierd.. the atmosphere was quite heavy.. well you heard about accident with our dressing room.. shoes.. we really didn't think about places at the scoreboard at that moment. 3rd place really felt nice because, well try to understand us, it was our very first time and it's wonderful to be 3rd.
Host: Girls, so was you dressing room vandalized right before your final performance?
Lena: mmm no..
Host: It's just that I read about it but didn't really get when it happened exactly
Marina: Well it happened when we already made it to arena and were getting ready for the final...
Lena: No.. *to Marina* she's not about that. She's about vandalizing thing that took place after results were announced
Marina: Ah that...
Lena: We finished 3rd.. ok.. I'll tell you the whole story from the begining.. Some time before the final Marina's shoes were stollen. We've told this story millions of times already. Those shoes were specially made for dancing and we had only that one pair but ok, we found a way out of that and kept going. Then 30 minutes before our performance we realize that our stage suits are dirty because whole dressing room and chairs are in something. Organizators of the contest failed to provide us another dressing room or even some clean chairs, so we wait for our performance standing there but well.. Russians know worse conditions and the performance was pretty ok. And then after results were announced we got back to the dressing room and see posters and flags on the floor with footsteps over them
Marina: yeah and spit everywhere..
Lena: well.. not really everywhere, it was on the door
Host: Terrible. Any ideas who did this? I understand that you probably won't tell but still may be you got some suspicions
Marina: Well we aren't really that interested in who did it actually, we didn't try hard to find out because this person.. well it's not hard to guess who it was.. it was just someone who couldn't control himself and probably wasn't happy with our result..
Host: Was it one of your rivals in the contest?
Lena: We don't know
Host: So you don't want to tell, it's ok
Lena: It's not that really, try to understand, we weren't really going deep into this.. it would be low to create fuss over it being guests in foreign country. Really, believe it or not, it doesn't matter for us who did it
Host: Well let God to be his judge
Marina: I think that if this person wanted us to know who he was, he'd let us know somehow
Host: Not nessesary. Some people never have courage to confront people openly and prefere doing things behind one's back
Marina: Well then he's worth bothering with even less..



Host: And what's your attitude towards critics about the song and in general?
Lena: Well you see, it's pretty hard to make this kind of music in the format of our show-business. Every type of music has its own audience. There are many categories and we don't fit them all and not everyone likes us.. really, we aren't that 100$ banknote to be liked by everyone. There are many different opinions and we like it.
Host: Aham, by the way, is this style, this song and image really the way this project is going into or was it just an ESC-thing?
Lena: We can reply: 'stay tuned and you'll see' *smiles*
Host: Smart
Lena: Or we can say: 'We have a producer and he's.. producing us'
Host: You fully trust him, don't you?
Lena *nods*
Host: Absolutely?
Lena: Yes
Host: Is it just some luck and you have exactly same ideas on what's good and what's not or is it just trust in his professionalism when sometimes you don't fully understand it but you know he knows better?
Marina: He knows. Because when I just met him and didn't know him well enough, there were those situations where I thought I'd do some things differently but time showed he was 100% right in everything. I have mega-trust for this person now.
Host: Lena?
Lena: You know, I somehow never really thought about reasons I trust him, if it's because of his professionalism or something else... it's just so. I just love and trust him a lot and that's all, I don't have any doubts here. I know for sure that we are on the same wave. I love his music. I believe he is the best producer.
Host: Ok, then another question: How long has it been since that Star Factory show?
Lena: I don't know.. don't remember. Just thought about it yesterday and really couldn't say for sure. About 4 years ago.
Host: Correct me if I'm wrong, but hadn't you became the artist of Fadeev's Producing Center right away?
Lena: That's right
Host: So all these years.. all this time as we can't really remember how long it was exactly, what were you doing?
Lena: *pause* Yesterday, well this night, I was meeting an old friend of mine and she said this thing that after Star Factory.. after.. You don't mind a bit of personal stuff, do you?
Host: I'm happy with it
Lena: *understanding smile* Well After Star Factory, after the concert tour.. all that fuss.. after that stardome syndrome I had.. I was just working. Well on papers I was working for Maxim, getting salary.. I did feel that they'll be some work, some project but they never really promissed me anything. We were recording some tracks from time to time but it wasn't serious, more of making impression there's some work going on. All was really slow. And at the same time I was getting those offers to work for other producing centers, try myself in movies, work abroad. There was quite a list of possibilities and my friends kept pushing me, saying 'give it up already, leave while you can'. So this friend told me yesterday 'And you stayed..' I guess I really felt it, really knew there'll be this work for me, work I really wanted. And I always wanted to work only with Fadeev and sing only his songs.
Host: I guess if Maxim heard this now, he'd feel pleased. I mean such words must be nice to hear.
Lena: I think Maxims knows what we think of him



Host: Ok, I can bet this questions annoys you a lot already but I can't help it. People keep asking. Lena, what exactly happened with that Serbian singer? Some sources claim she sexually harrased you, some that she invited you to her room, some that she was flirting with you a bit, in latest interview you said she just shouted 'Woo Woo' into your ear. So what did she do to you exactly?
Lena: *laugh* Gosh... I so didn't want to get into all this from the start but those journalists that were with us in Helsinki found their way to provoke me. Ok, I'll tell it again. The interesting thing is that I always say truth on this situation and then you read all those versions. People seem to interprete things in their own ways *thinking pause* Umm.. it was simple actually. I was on my way to the stage. When I start getting sick, the first thing to suffer are my ears. They really begin to hurt and I try to isolate myself and hear as few sounds as possible. We met in quite a small space with... girl from Serbia
Host: Her name is Marija
Marina: She-ri-fo-vich
Lena: Yes thanks. Somehow find it hard to remember and always ask girls. Well.. we met and she somehow 'surrounded' me strangely fast and began shouting something into my ear.. something like Woo Wow Woo. That was so *painful look* close, I felt deaf for a moment and my first thought was...
Host: And you were all alone there?
Lena: Yeah.. Olya was a bit behind and she caught up with me soon but all was fine really. I took it she was slightly playful with me but the problem was that I was about to go on stage and that loud sound that stayed in my ear, it went directly to my brain for next half an hour at least. That's dangerous because I couldn't really relax and sing. I was feeling pain in my ears. So really.. I don't know what to think of it.. could be 2 reasons actually..
Host: That's what I wanted to ask...
Lena: But the thing is I don't really care about this either because it's all over now and... Marija won and I.. I'm happy for her because I have quite a lot of friends there in Serbia and if I get offensive towards her.. and probably she can find it offensive that I talk about this on public.. By offending her, I can accidentaly offend her country and that's something I really don't want to do because I really believe that Serbia are like our brothers.
Host: *jokingly* I can imagine Marija sitting now, rubbing hands and thinking 'it wasn't a bad idea to 'surround' her after all'
Marina: Or probably it's the opposite and she regrets not trying harder *smiles*
Host: Probably. But really, honestly speaking I don't think it had any effect on your performance, did it?
Lena: Thank you. We also think it didn't
Host: We, viewers are somehow sure that nothing ruined it for us and stopped us from feeling proud with you this year
Marina: Yeah, it didn't have any effect on our performance for sure, if had some effect, it could be only on Marija's performance. I mean winning the contest for the first time in Serbia's history being under impression of Lena Temnikova...
Lena: *shakes had laughing* Aww, dear. Don't you really love me. We love each other a lot.



Lena: *plays with Marina's hair*
Marina: Awwch.. what are you doing there..
Lena: I'm making it look beautiful
Host: You seem to have such a .. touching relationship. Seems like you really became good friends by now
Lena: More than that. We are already.. like a part of each other and that's not an exaggeration. It's been.. We live together since January. So even before we knew about going to Eurovision we already lived together as we were working as Serebro band... getting ready for shooting the video, having rehearsals, training dancing routine. And now it really got to the point we are just parts of one whole



Host: Silver-girls, name 2 best and worst habbits of each other, if you know each other well enough. It's some kind of test I guess.
Lena: Oukey... Marina.. she's a great driver. That's a plus. But when she's driving, you better don't get to her with questions, suggestions, advices.. That's her big minus because she realy gets all graaawrh.. wild cat, absolute jaguar.
Host: How long is your driving experience?
Lena: Really long
Marina: Well, really, let's not go into details here
Host: Ok, next one
Lena: I have to say one more about Marina, right?
Host: Yes it seems. You were asked for 2.
Lena: Mmm.. well this person loves to sleep. It's very good because it does have effect on the looks and she gets even more beautiful. But we don't really have much time for that, so she ends up sleeping all the time.. all free time. And it's a bad thing I guess.
Marina: *confused* That's quite an original way to put it.. All the free time we get 3 hours a day of
Lena: *laughs* Yeah. Oh And I also just remembered that if I ask Marina to do something around the house like washing some grapes for me for example, she'll do without any arguments.
Marina: Well it's because it's not really hard for me and I feel pleased to see another person..
Lena: Pleased..
Marina: Yes I'm pleased to have you pleased
Lena: And I'm happy you are happy *laughs* And our Olya is a really wonderful girl. She always washes dishes...
Host: Hard-working one
Lena: Yes hard-working and always knows how to find compromises. She's our small sun.
Marina: She always finds proper words to calm everyone down in case some conflict happens
Lena: She's a great dancer, she's going through dancing routine with us when we are at home because we forget all those moves pretty soon, she's really great... mmm.. what else.. oh well she has minuses as well
Host: And they are?
Lena: Well.. she's.. mmm.. very calm
Host: But Lena, is it really a bad thing?
Lena: She's too soft.. for us
Marina: She's V-E-R-Y calm
Lena: You see, we are sooo whimsical... soo...
Marina: Quick-tempered...
Lena: Yes .. yes..
Marina: Soo.. soo..
Lena: *waves hands at loss of words*
Marina: We are like fire and she's like... well I really don't know

aurora dearest, younarevsuch a sunshine. I'm on my phone right now, but keep that file up, ill download it tonight when I get to comp. :rose:

ok, i made it upstairs to a computer.... ive watched the first few mins - i havent watched anything in Russian is sooooooooooooooooo long i forgot how often they say "vot'" and "voobsheeeeeee" :lol:

dearest aurora, i will comment as i watch (im sure some people would enjoy them - it will give them some fuel LoL) ... so my fav moment so far is when the rambler poor intern finally brought water and Lena gave her 'looks' .. also, Lena, she is such a princess already - look at her roll eyes around when she is bored! LoL

I must admit though, i am liking Marina more and more - Lena doesnt sounds the smartest either LoL... though she talks way more, Marina has the sassiest look ALWAYS, and i am a sucker for girls that 'squeeze' their mouths (whatever you call it) and squint their eyes at the same time - sasssssssssssssy LoL

..more to come in a few - sprits to make first :coctail:

vodka-selodka :lol: i do not believe that they didnt want to drink vodka - what kind of russians are they!?

also, Lena, darling, STOP talking, let poor girl Marina say a word! LOL

aurora, do you REALLY say 'vecherinka"? To me it sounds SO old fashioned and funny - i guess it is one of those russian implanted words in bulgrian that we had when i was little and are now GONE!

add: is this a Russian saying or did she come up with it? I like it, im gonna start using it "we arent a 100 dollar bill to be liked by everyone" ... funny, the dollar isnt doing so well, she should use Euros ;) but it works here for me

add2: woo woo woo, pleeeeeeeeeeeeease! "i didnt want to talk about Marija.." please! Look at the smile on her face! and her story of how her years hurt and it went to her brian for 30 min is just.... ok princes! LoL

add3: wait, i switch again, the blondie is sassy and timid at the same time - how bizarre... Lana is getting more charming now... or is it my sprits LoL

LOL Cools, your comments are always fun to read :lol:

Well when it comes to Lena being a princess, you can break it in 3 parts here, I guess
1) At the begining she's all like bolied veggy after that traffic jam in 30C Moscow and it's like omg I'm dying and 'My brain is not adequate' and so on. But she gets over it by second half and becomes a bit more like her usual self.
2) The host was impossible. Well she was so good that it was actually bad. She was acting like some fan, trying to be nice, coming up with excuses for them and being all like 'we love you blah blah u can do this and that because it's YOU and yeah we'll bring you water in addition' lol Lena is just not polite enough to pretend she didn't notice it, so half of those rolled eyes were like 'omg I can't believe you are real' or 'won't u stop being such an idiot' or 'no, you haven't just said that'. That 'band orientation' line and 'aren't you enjoying your stardome yourself?' she teased the host with, was just pure mocking. Lena just knew lady will start panicing and desperately trying to come up with excuses lol Even Marina rolled her eyes a couple of times. This lady was treating them like spoiled kids and well they acted accordingly
3) She IS a princess :D It's actually funny how she says she had this stardome before and she's like trying not to have it again but she often fails and that's so obvious at times. She can be so full ofherself, it's almost cute lol

Marina is different. She has this advantage of talking only when she feels like doing. She's not obliged to. And she knows she can get Lena's attention any time and that she doesn't have to talk much to have males glued to the screen. She knows they love her just sitting here and making those faces. I'd say she's more mature, polite and condifent in some femenine way.

voooot...

Vodka-selyodka.. really, I think the shedule was just too tough and they were forbidden to do some stuff they'd usually do. They definetely aren't those proper home girls. After all the first indication of Lena having to do with that Serebro project Max was working on came when Lena and her friend Nastya attended Star Factory 6 concert. People that were there say they were drunk, cheering so loud that program's host Yana actually stopped at some point and said to Lena 'Girl, really. You should show all that support when voting was still ON'. After that they went outside, there was lots of cursing and this secret inforamtion 'leaked' somehow. Lena is also a definite smoker, probably one of other girls or may be both are too.

Yes, we REALLY say 'vecherinka' :rolleyes: It has nothing to do with 'vecher' (evening) anymore. Just means 'party' here.

That 100$ line.. I think it was 'heard it before and liked' case. I think I heard it before too. And nah, here dollar is much more than just strong international money. For last 10-15 years it's what we measure prices with. Then we come to province, hear prices in russian money and look all stupid trying to count how much it is in dollars to decide if it's cheap or expensive :rolleyes:

Well, I don't know what's with that smoking issue. They never get caught with ordinary cigs. I think once Lena was smoking cigars on tv but that's it :bum: At the same time people more then once reportered about cig breaks Lena had during the FZ tour and about 'silver girls' 'puffing' there in Helsinki. May be it's their secret method to make voices sexier :D Marina and Lena were pretty high-pitched before.

Kurgan is not a village, really. It's a city but one far in province. Fadeev is from there as well. Marina is from Moscow as far as I remember and it shows, she does have this 'class' only one of 2 our capitals gives you and she's not gay enough to come from Peter.. so Moscow it is! :lol:

Marina is different... I'd say she's more mature, polite and condifent in some femenine way.
What a feat, she is almost two years older than Lena! :p
where is Marina from?
She's American, the older sister of the Olson - twins! :laugh:
Post-FZ girlfriends
...
Nastya [1] [2] Now this is the girl Lena's been attending every party and show with lately.
Sometimes I am really slow lately. So this Nastya Sinel'schikova is Lena's best friend, the sister of Igor' Sinel'schikov, the supposed boyfriend of Temnikova, both of them children of Larisa Sinel'schikova, who happens to be the wife of Konstantin Ernst, the director general of 'Pervij Kanal', the channel, which decided, who was going to the ESC. Mmmmh, yeah...I bet we have a happy family, who is very pleased with Lena's success.

I can read your thoughts! NO, daddy Konstantin had nothing to do with the channel's decision to send Tem 'n' Co, sorry Serebro, to the ESC, NOTHING! :D

By the way, huge thanks for your translations, la aurora!

la aurora
28-05-2007, 17:00
Argos, LoL :lol:

Well I actually planned to add that Nastya's background to the summary above but somehow forgot, it was a long one lol

So, first of all, I've also read that tabloid story on Lena + Igor but found no evidence for that as tabloids failed to find them themselves. I mean they couldn't even find a pic of them being around each other and posted Igor+Mila and Lena+Nastya ones instead. Mila is a blond from later Star Factory he dated and helped to get into the project but there's no material on him and Lena. I can bet they met, ie know each other through Nastya but nothing more, so we'll make it 'rumored'.

Let's put it all together:
So Lena is a close friend of Nastya Sinel'schikova who whas a brother tabloids rumored to be Lena's bf, Nastya who's the daughter of Larisa Sinel'schikova who's the General Director of a major Russian TV company VID and at the same time wife of Konstantin Ernst who's the General Director of Channel 1 - biggest channel of the country that that owns Star Factory show, selects our representatives for ESC and broascasts the contest. Nastya also appeared in this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4xjpnLNozI) video of Irakli who's the artist of Channel 1 and Producing Center of Maxim Fadeev, who was one of the closest Lena's friends at Star Factory and Last Hero shows, who Lena was on the same concert tour with and who's ex-back-vocalist, ex-dancer and as some sources say - ex-girlfriend is Olya Seryabkina aka one of the 'bitches' stading up next to Lena in Serebro that is a project of Max Fadeev who's the man responsible for Star Factory 2 edition, comes from Kurgan just like Lena and is on very good terms with Channel 1 guys. I love the way our show-business is :D You can find conections for everyone if you feel like doing.

But really, I believe Igor is the least important link in this chain. Having Nastya around probably doesn't harm but being someone from Star Factory and having Fadeev as producer is already an open door for ESC. He's on good terms with Channel 1. They can ask him to give a song and he can count on their support too ;)

28-05-2007, 17:27
Oh btw 'Serebro' originally was planned as a solo project for some other Lena who was writing her songs herself and who Max found online where her song was put up as material for competition of arrangement-makers.

Information on 'Serebro' project by Fadeev appeared online quite a while ago but no one knew anything. The only info was that it's his project and he consideres it the 2nd most important project in his career.

First rumored 'Serebro' was a bit unusual project for Fadeev. Pretty Fadeev-ish in mood but Max wasn't writing songs and it was another studio where tracks were being recordered. Max was producing that one, helping with arrangements and the material for the album was almost ready...

And at the same time some curious fans of Temnikova had this 'secret' information about Serebro being a girlsband.. with 2 girls certain and 1 they kept looking for and with Lena in it. It was pretty unclear and seemed to be tough for everyone involved (Max can be quite a complicated person at times) but in the end Serebro suddenly appeared in the list of ESC candidates our media published. Few days after we saw few pics and fakes began circulating in RU.net. First one was song 'Telefony-Provoda (http://www.realmusic.ru/play/file/hifi/0/70174/provoda_70174.mp3)' - demo by that other Lena Fadeev was working with. Second fake (http://www.sendspace.com/file/ph23rh) appeared a bit later and sounded much closer to what we got in the end (btw, if anyone has an idea on who really sings this, I'd be curious to know as I failed to find matching lyrics back then.. information from native english-speakers on if there's some heavy accent in there would be also appearciated). By the time real Song1 appeared people stopped believing everything already :p

It's unclear what happened with that other project. Some rumors say the singer and her team just lost patience as Max wasn't hurrying with release and that they gave up 'Serebro' as the name without any problems as it was something Max came up with and had rights for. Probably the album will be released with another name and by someone else. Here's (http://www.realmusic.ru/play/file/hifi/0/290504/suki_290504.mp3) another song from that girl. I must say combination of soft piano music and depressive, angry lyrics with swearing in them is pretty 'interesting' lol

LoL Cools, I mean I graduated from school in goddamn 2000!!! And we had those ribbons on our heads and stuff lol It's wierd how we somehow need to look what we looked at the first day we went to school.. soviet style u know lol Lena was lucky not to have uniform on at least, we did :lol: Can you imagine a crowd of cool party-loving 17 yo girls looking that pathetic? Haha.. And no, it wasn't a real choir actually. It's just we had to look like one just for 1 day.. for tha party. And as many of us (especially guys) never could sing, most skipped 1-2 rehearsals we had, many were drunk and never really knew words.. well that was something I wouldn't want to see and hear again :lol: Lena's 'Last Bell' party looked almost normal. It's funny seeing all those good kids and KNOWING that right after it was over, they went somewhere and got totally wasted lol I mean I don't even remember much from that night.

And yeah. The wedding DOES look boring. That's actually what makes it so priceless. I mean marrying couple looks sooo bored and gusts go doing those wierd drunk dancing.. and it was probably some cheap cafe they rented... LoL

Well as the girls (http://v.foto.radikal.ru/0705/b9/9a4fbb4a2641.jpg) are obviously very busy (http://v.foto.radikal.ru/0705/64/851fa63d8fd4.jpg) being on the 'tour (http://v.foto.radikal.ru/0705/99/84972a6adddc.jpg)' (read performing their only song once at some concert) in sunny Tuapse (http://v.foto.radikal.ru/0705/4a/63ed698aa21c.jpg), I thought I'd post something equally useless.

So here we got a report from Helsinki (http://www.elenatemnikova.com/Evro2007/mtv1005.avi) by MTV Russia. It's cool because it has:
1) This MTV Vj I Taia-Katyusha who's humor I never really got in my life
2) Girls singing russian version of Song # 1 (I really want some of the shit their lyricist is on)
3) Girls (read Lena) singing our all-time patriotic song Katyusha at press-conference and being all happy about it for no reason
4) Theee Dress footage

Here's (http://www.alexjdanov.ru/evr_jdanov_serebro.rar) impressive 61MB photopack from Alexander Jdanov who had nothing better to do in May than following the band around and taking pics of them making fools of themselves.

And finally result (http://img403.imageshack.us/img403/8844/sexyfreakbylaaurora1280ex9.jpg) of ME having nothing better to do and feeling traumatized after finding out that the model for that nice vector drawing I had as my wallpaper was actually Elijah Wood. I can't believe I had a hobbit on my screen for so long without even realizing it :bum:

30-05-2007, 22:02
Thanks la aurora.

I love Alex, so cute with the girls. :)

Serebro should have chosen Katyusha for ESC. Everybody loves it. They would have won in a superior manner! :yes:

And finally result (http://img403.imageshack.us/img403/8844/sexyfreakbylaaurora1280ex9.jpg) of ME having nothing better to do...
Elenamaniac! :D - though... I'm a bit disappointed. No pic with the nice cleft between her teeth! :(

So here we got a report from Helsinki by MTV Russia. It's cool because it has:
hahaha, they sing Katyusha! i had to learn that song for Russian 300... haha... and song #1 sounds better in russian to me... but maybe that's cause i don't inherently understand it (it took 2 listens to understand, haha...)

la aurora
31-05-2007, 10:21
Argos,
yeah, it's a shame about that cleft. Didn't have enough material back then but I'll make sure it gets attention it deserves next time :D

Too bad you can't go for Katyusha or something of that kind in ESC, but I got that wierd idea recently that I'd love to see Marija and Lena switch places on the stage for a moment and see how they do with songs of each other. Must have been quite a sight :p

Greg, I'm impressed with you understanding what they are on about in russian version. I mean I heard it more than twice and still don't get :bum:

i looked on youtube, but only find things like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8zl9hT2k4I&mode=related&search= - only a german can do this! lol

la aurora
31-05-2007, 18:36
LoL yeah, cools. Saw both before.

That MTV show when Lena was on half-way from village-girl and no one really knew her much. And this idiot of a host wouldn't let her speak and would have his hands all around her making her feel uneasy lol But the worst part is the song :bum: I mean that blond guy is the shame of our show-business. He's that awards-winning stylist and he also had that TV show where he'd just walk around over-gaying himself and sounding like *beep* *beep* the Star is in shock! *beep* And then he decides he can sing... and Lena actually sings along.. that alone deserves a slap.

It's wierd that you can't download the report because it works for me :confused: But here's a copy (http://www.sendspace.com/file/fn9sdq) just in case.

Tadam. Today girls were tortured by internet audience again. This time organized by AiF paper and their mods seem to be bit less sweet than Rambler girl. Here's (http://gazeta.aif.ru/conf/conf/140) russian version of the chat (they'll upload video and pics later most likely). And here's translation of the whole thing:

Host, 15:28
Good afternoon! Our guests are girls from SEREBRO.
SEREBRO, 15:29
Hello! Sorry, we are late. The traffic jam is really bad in Moscow today but we tried our best to get here.

Serena , St.-Petersburg
Hello! Girls, you rock!!! I was supporting you a lot!! So when is your album out??? And don't you plan to have some rest? It's just that I saw your interview and you looked so tired there...
SEREBRO, 15:31
Lena. Well we really are tired, they promised us some rest around January and we hope our album goes out in the bebinning of next year.
Olya. We are in the proccess of recording at the moment.
Lena. We can say that our songs are going to be really cute and feminine. That's a big secret we are giving out to you now : )

Alina , Jubileyniy
Hello.. Dear Lena, Olya and Marina..is it true that you are going to perform with Sting.. and conquire not only russian audience but also try to break-through on international level?
SEREBRO, 15:32
Lena. Right now we have a lot of offers to consider and our producer studies them all. We won't let this secret out for now.

Roman
It was obvious at the final that Lena was feeling 'like a fish in the water'*! ))) What did Olya and Marina feel?
<Aurora: russian saying meaning 'comfortable, natural'>
SEREBRO, 15:35
Marina. I felt calm and there was this feeling of happiness because of being there.
Olya. I felt confident enough. I wasn't stoned and I didn't really think about how many performances I had before : )
Lena. Many think that Eurovision is scary because of 120 mln people watching. But it's not really that important how many people you perform for, it makes things even more excitig.
Olya. The three of us charge each other with energy on stage and we feel confident together.

Yulia, Gomel (Belarus)
Please tell us more about how exactly did Marija Sherifovich harrass you. What media wrote about it sounds not so believable. And if it's just a PR-trick, can't you just admit coming up with this story on your own. Or didn't you?
SEREBRO, 15:37
Lena. We didn't come up with this story on our own and we didn't even want to share it with everyone. If not those journalists in Helsinki, you wouldn't hear about it. We don't really want to comment on it anymore because, thanks God, it's all OVER now. All media wrote on this is true.

Alenka
How old were you when you "private" life began???
SEREBRO, 15:38
Lena. 18 : )
Marina. Serious relationships — at 18.
Olya. First love - at 17.
<Aurora: aren't they 'early birds' or what? : )>

Olga, St.-Petersburg
Hello, doesn't E.Temnikova think she tries to imitate M.Jovovich with the way she speaks and moves?
SEREBRO, 15:40
Lena. Jovovich???!!! Wow!!! It's the first time I hear this, really... : ) Unfortunately, last time I saw Mila was in that 5th Element movie and it was quite a while ago.Now I see her only on pictures. But I don't really mind this comparision as she's really cute : )

Alyosha
I'd like to know: what kind of men do you, girls, like? (especially Lena).Because my girlfriend is a lot like Lena (she's very protective of someone she 'owns', very jelous and she always needs something new in relationship.. ) How one can surprise you, Lena, and are you really like this?
SEREBRO, 15:43
Lena. Alyosha, weren't you describing me here? Because I'm also protective of people I 'own'. I also love ordering people around. I need a man with a head and normal job, someone who can take care of our home, so I can go on tour knowing everything will be fine there : ) So far it's always the opposite. I'd love to meet a man who'd be able to win over my attitude and it's really pity I haven't met anyone like this yet : )

Anya , Tallinn
Hello, girls. What's your height?
SEREBRO, 15:43
Olya. I'm the smallest — 1m 58 cm.
Lena. I'm — 1m 64 cm and Marina — 165 cm.
<Aurora: what's with us selling midgets to the world?>

Dmitry , Moscow
Hello girls. The question many of your fans have I guess: how hard it is to become your friend?
SEREBRO, 15:45
Lena. It takes time to test friendship, I have friends. But we need to meet each other first.
Marina. I believe there's nothing impossible in this world.
Olya. When it comes to me, being friends with me is easy. I think so. Building real friendship really takes time, being just fellows isn't any hard : )

Faramir , Odintsovo
Hello girls! You are great! We really were supporting you and believed in you! We love you!
Tell please, what do you think about the fact opinions on you are so polar now and that many believe this project won't last long and it doesn't have much potential? Are you ready to surprise your audience? I'm personally one of those who believes in you and impatiently waits for new songs and videos.
With great respect, your loving fans!
SEREBRO, 15:47
Lena. Thank you, Faramir : ) It's really very nice to hear kind words. But we understand that you can't be loved by everyone and that's why we won't promise anything, we'll let our actions speak.
Olya. Will it last or not - only time will show.
Marina. I agree here : )

Alenka
How close are you, girls???
SEREBRO, 15:49
Lena. Right now I'm sitting here and feeding Olya some nuts from my hand... Marina, would you like some water? We are very close. Believe it or not, Alenka, but we live together since January and haven't yet had a single argument. We love each other very much : )

LunatIK , Moscow
Who's this? And what is this? Eurovision is politics first of all and doesn't really mean anything. What happened to Fadeev after Linda? I thought he quitted russian 'material' (i can't even call it show-business). Who needs another group of high-pitched bambies? Max, it's better to leave this than making just another project like this (it's not even music, it's project)... Damn.
SEREBRO, 15:50
Lena. Right now Maxim is outside of the country. I think he'd gladly answer your question if he was here : )

Elena Vorobyova , Ivanovo
Didn't you feel ashamed performing a song that when translated to russian has so many words that you hardly can meet in classic literature, and that has one and pretty obvious meaning? : ) Did you like Molitva?
SEREBRO, 15:53
Lena. We liked Molitva a lot!
Olya. And we don't feel ashamed! : )
Lena. We are actually proud of who we are and where we come from. When some person has 3 uni diplomas, when he really achieved something in this life, he shouldn't feel ashamed of anything. And we have best people of Russia working on our project.

Dasha
What's your opinion on Dmitry Koldun?
SEREBRO, 15:53
Lena. It's a very-very-very positive one, he's great and really talented.

Marina , (Germany) Halle
How do you think, wasn't Eurovision unfair? I think it wasn't.
SEREBRO, 15:56
Lena. I think it worked out fine for us and it makes no sense to keep getting back to this. And once again about professionals... This contest is really old, has good reputation and you can't cheat the audience. We are happy with our 3rd place. If anyone deserved better result than got, it was Israel.
Marina. And I think Sweden deserved more.

Artur , Ulyanovsk
Who do you think is a good candidate to represent Russia in Eurovision 2008?
SEREBRO, 15:57
Olya. We hope it will be someone new, young and talented.

Marija , Novosibirsk
«SEREBRO», I see you on TV daily now and I feel happy about it! And what do YOU feel seeing yourself from outside in such amounts? : )
SEREBRO, 15:58
Lena. Oi, Mashenka... We'd love to answer... But with our current shedule we didn't get a chance to see any shows and articles. We don't even know if opinions on us are positive or negative.

Lera
Girls, congratulations with 3rd place. What did you feel standing there in front of european audience??
SEREBRO, 16:01
Lena. First of all, I've never seen so many Russian flags even on parade. When we got on stage in all this loudness we heard: 'Serebro! Lena, straighten your dress' : )
Olya. It's a pity we had no time for hello's, the song began right away, we had no time for thanks either.
Lena. 3 minutes on stage is just not enough for us! : )

Dryana, St.-Petersburg
Tell us pelease about your plans for the future
SEREBRO, 16:02
Marina. Just like all other artists, we have plans for album, shooting of video.. and some other work too : )
Lena. And also we love our president a lot*!
Olya. He's very handsome : )
<Aurora: now before you look wierd at me, I have no idea what they were on either. But to avoid any kind of missunderstandings, I must make it clear that Mr.Putin for Russians is quite often just that fictional Macho character.. like Shrek.. Medved.. or Che-Burashka. People make stories on those, photo-collages etc. I remember seeing that wonderful portrait of Putin in black shades on the wall of MK office that got girls' attention. Probably they saw something like this in AiF office too (journalists love those things) or may be there was some remark on this that got them started>

Ch
Girls, is you 'ROOF*' on it's place? ) And what was that cool countryside house we saw on the pictures in '7Days' mag today? Keeping fingers crossed for you, hope everything goes fine, don't stop!!! I wish you to be successful and adequate!
<Aurora: Bleh.. another remark needed. 'Roof' actaully means roof. But in Russia 2 other meanings are pretty popular. When you say someone's 'roof isn't on it's place', it means the person is nuts and not exactly friends with his mind. Another meaning for 'roof' is a person or group of people (often criminal or someone from authorities or police) who makes sure the person's interests are pushed and he's protected well enough>
SEREBRO, 16:04
Lena. We were just visiting some very good people. They are our friends. Just having some rest, ordinary weekend : )
Olya. The roof is ok, no holes so far : )

Luba , Cherepovets
Lena, why don't you visit your official site?
SEREBRO, 16:05
Lena. Why? I do... just don't have much time lately..

Dinara
Hello! Where can we buy merchandise with band's symbolics on it? You are the BEST!!!!!!!!!
SEREBRO, 16:06
Lena. We only give it out! We don't sell it. When you meet us, just ask and you'll have everything : )

@nton , Taganrog
When will we hear the russian version of the song#1?
SEREBRO, 16:06
Olya. Very soon.

Marija, Novosibirsk
Girls, what's you ideal of a man?
SEREBRO, 16:07
Marina. Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. He rocks in all ways possible.
Lena. (in english) The best!

Nastya, Krasnodar
Question for Lena Temnikova: I want to congratulate you with this triumph!!! Lena, how long it's been since you divorced Semyonov? And do you answer messages from your fans sent to your e-mail? And is it you singing that 'Telefoni-Provoda' song? Thanks in advance.
SEREBRO, 16:09
Lena. It's not me singing that song, it's another band under this name although brand SEREBRO belongs to us. I do answer e-mails but only 3% of them. I just don't have enough time and strength for all. We didn't have an official marriage with Semyonov and this question just isn't worth attention. I'm free.

Anastasia Ryzhova
Tell please, when does your album get released and when can we see a concert of yours? I also want to say that you are the best. I adore you.
SEREBRO, 16:11
Lena. Thank you, Nastya. It feels really nice to hear. We'll be on concerts starting from June and album comes out in the begining of next year.

Petia, Kondopoga-geroi
'Singing panties', don't you have shame?
SEREBRO, 16:12
Lena. Wow... I alsways said how much I love bands that demonstrate their bodies. We are very modest, like monks really : ) You got us confused with some other band : ) Although... if I had an ideal body.... : )

Lera, Yaroslavl
Girls, will there be a tour around Russia??
SEREBRO, 16:13
Lena. Sure we will have one like all normal artists... but bit later.. in autumn

Dmitriy, Moscow
Do you have time for reading books and if yes, what kind of books you prefere at the moment?
SEREBRO, 16:15
Lena. Very interesting question. I love reading very much. I'm quite a physcho lately and that's because I just don't have time for reading now.
Olya. I also love it, especially English literature. Right now I'm into Japanese one. Reading Ryu Murakami's 'Lines' at the moment.
Lena. Books are our real passion...

Yuriy Yaglov, Syktyvkar
Girls, what do you yourselves think perspectives of Serebro project are?
SEREBRO, 16:16
Lena. We are not fortune-telling agency, we don't know. We just do what we love doing.

Pavel Yeryomin
Girls, do you feel happy? Be honest please.
SEREBRO, 16:16
Yes, we are very happy

Artur, Ulyanovsk
Why is Maxim fadeev this negative when it comes to Serdyuchka with her.. how to call it not to be rude.. strange 'song'?
SEREBRO, 16:16
Lena. We don't comment on Verka Serdyuchka.

yummy, Moscow
Summer. Wonderful city of Moscow. Heat. One really wants to get drawn and preferrably in some sea. Don't you have those thoughts that you weren't that lucky with the time for all this popularity? You have to move from one place to another and the street feels like oven? And btw, how was your Tuapse trip?
SEREBRO, 16:17
Olya. And in winter it's too cold : )
Lena. We like evrything

Elena, Russia
Question to Marina Lizorkina: «When is your birthday?»
SEREBRO, 16:18
Marina. That's kind of question one wants to give long and detailed answer for : ) June, 9th : )

Masha, Novosibirsk
Girls, do you spend that rare free time together or you feel like having some rest from each other? : )
SEREBRO, 16:19
Lena. Sometimes we'd love to get rest.. But then we begin missing each other in no time. We got really attached to each other, like kids.

Darya, Moscow
Question for Lena: Do you think you are strong and is there a man who'd be able to break down this personality of yours?
SEREBRO, 16:20
Lena. I hope that some man will break it one day because it became realy tough, like titanium stick...

Lenok, Moscow
Will you take part in Muz-TV awards ceremony tomorrow?
SEREBRO, 16:20
Yes
Lena. We'll be those special 'full of pathos' guests : )

Laysan, Kasan
Question for Marina and Olya: why don't you have personal sites? : )
SEREBRO, 16:21
Lena. I have un-official site made by fans. And SEREBRO band has official site - serebro.su

Lenok, Moscow
Where in Moscow do you live?
SEREBRO, 16:22
Lena. Tulskaya metro station

Dryana, St.-Petersburg
Girls, you ar ethe bestest. I adore you. Have you ever been to St.-Petersburg nad is yes, what do you think of our city?
SEREBRO, 16:24
Marina. I adore Piter. It's a beautiful, wonderful city. It gets fantastic there in summer. I've been there many times and hope to visit it more than once in the future.
Olya. And I love gloomy Piter, it gets this specific charm...
<Aurora: 'Piter' is nickname for St.-Petersburg>

Adam
Greetings from Lithunia : )
SEREBRO, 16:24
Lena. Thank you, Adam : )

Artur, Ulyanovsk
If not you, who do you think deserved to win Eurovision?
SEREBRO, 16:25
Marina. Marija Sherifovich of course! : )

aleksey , St.-Petersburg
1 Do you have musicl education?
2 Why was it you to represent Russia in ESC this year?
SEREBRO, 16:26
Lena. Because we were chosen by jury. They said 'YOU GO' and we went : ) We weren't really raising hand too high in this case : )

Marija, Novosibirsk
Do you have bitchy ones in your band and if yes, who?
SEREBRO, 16:26
Lena. Olya's cat. Real b*tch, she makes our lives impossible : ) There's a fish too. Also very bitchy. Thick-lipped thing... : )

Sasha, Moscow
Lena, question for you: I saw a picture of you crying when you got back to the hotel. What was the reason?
SEREBRO, 16:27
Lena. I hit my leeeeeeg with something really bad.. and I felt such a pity for myself. But tears were photoshopped of course : )

McLean
Girls, you are the best Russian representatives at Eurovision ever. I believe the fact you came 3rd isn't just an accident because Maxim Fadeev is never wrong with such things. Keep doing great job! I'd love to ask you: 1. What's your dream? 2. What qualities in people you like the most? 3. Best memory from childhood? Good Luck!
SEREBRO, 16:30
Lena. I don't have a dream, I have wishes and goals. Wishes come true, goals I work on achieving. I'd love to have very much money. I'd be helping homeless dogs, old people and children. Everytime I see them, I feel like crying.
Marina. Yes we have this dream to see less cruelty for weak and innocent.

Roman, Russia
to Lena: Those 3 long years after Star Factory that it took Fadeev to start serious work with you. Didn't you feel desperate? Did you have someone to support you or it was your personal strength and boundless trust to Fadeev that allowed you to keep faith in yourself and your talent and didn't let you to quit music absolutely?
SEREBRO, 16:31
Lena. I have very strong intuition, I knew that one day I'll have it all. I needed time to understand what I want.

Ilonka
Hello Serebro! Your ESC performance was great! Question to Olya and Marina: Girls, don't you feel offended when all attention switches to Lena? Relax a bit!! You are very cute girls! We love you!
SEREBRO, 16:32
Olya. Thank you very much. I don't suffer from lack of attention, so nothing to feel offended for : )
Marina. I feel the same, we all don't suffer from lack of attention : )
Lena. We are different and we have different fans : )

Daryana, St.-Petersburg
I bet people began to recognize you on streets now and you have to run a lot from them
SEREBRO, 16:34
Lena. We don't walk the streets. We move around in that shiny incassator* car
<Aurora: no idea what english word is, but that's the type of cars with special protection they use to transfer big amounts of money or other valueble things>

Host, 16:34
The conference is over. Thanks everyone.
SEREBRO, 16:34
Lena. Thank you for interesting questions, it was really our pleasure to chat with you : )
Olya. What Lena said.
Marina. Thanks everyone. Respect to Odintsovo especially : )

I know such things make you happy but I actually had a note about this part of the interview :p
<Aurora: now before you look wierd at me, I have no idea what they were on either. But to avoid any kind of missunderstandings, I must make it clear that Mr.Putin for Russians is quite often just that fictional Macho character.. like Shrek.. Medved.. or Che-Burashka.

Probably they saw something like this in AiF office too (journalists love those things) or may be there was some remark on this that got them started>

May be it takes to be russian to understand this stuff, but such things are very far from ass-kissing. Just like having some huge and often photoshopped portrait of Putin is popular in offices. It's a mockery for the time people were serious about having portraits on soviet leaders on the wall. Making 'macho' of Putin is something of this kind too.

dearest Val, I finally saw the video - had to run out before.... (oh btw, whats wrong with aurora and why did you complained a while back that i mess up your name... you better stop calling me Kris and switch to Chris - i had 3 other people call me Kris after they saw you calling me that! LoL )

now about Serebro - c'mon, that wasnt their russian version, that was them singing couple of words for the Russian MTV fans... if not, whats with the cats.. and do not tell me this comes from the future teller that said they are cats, because i will laugh really hard :lol:
and Katyusha - now that almost brought tears to my eyes! S dnem popedy, uraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! you know that during communism that was like our song as well.... i still remember the lyrics :none: lena did a good job singing it, except of course the usual high pitched scream at the end, whats up with those! and did they turn on the mic for the other two... i mean... c'mon, you couldnt hear them at all.. or were they too embarrase to get close to the mic..their faces were different than lena's, who i finally start to see as a real clown :lol: now that i have seen a few vids - she's def getting more and more charming

and no need to explain about putin to me - we do the same with our Boyko Borisov (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boyko_Borisov) - hes a superstar!

OMG, i just saw this comment and i laughed out loud! GOOD one :lol:

oh and also: http://chel.kp.ru/UserFiles/Temnikova.jpg ooops, and she thought that wearing that dress to the rehersals could help for the gold! :gigi:
http://chel.kp.ru/UserFiles/Temnikova-(1).jpg - and she was such a nice, modest girl in the 10th grade lol

also, what i dont get is that when you image google temnikova in lating letters you get: random russian girls, spiderman, caricature of condoleeza rice, bilan, the ark, pink, swimmers, the owsen twins :lol: , russian priest, madonna, a cat, that bilan again.. .and like 2 pics of her :lol:

this has nothing to do with Serebro, but since that Katyusha song, i looked up the Russian Classics i know and for those like Greg, who die for Russian propaganda :gigi: i thought id post links:
Smuglyanka Moldovanka (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cW8jXxnBsDc&mode=related&search=) - the hot gypsaaa from moldova that picks grapes
Ochi Chornye (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQEjwKs_hpg&mode=related&search=) - speaking of classics, oh im going to shed a tear again! lol
Kalinka (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_A7Hu0uKNw&mode=related&search=) - this is probably the most well known one in the west... but maybe i am wrong
What the Fuck (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBdceKOW5G4&mode=related&search=) - this came up for Kalinka, and i guess that is the bulgarian re-make of how todays generation is still raised on .. well.. some sort of kalinka :lol: the gypsa that sings with her nose voice and whistles is just ...
who else to better perform those than the Red Army Choir! Perfect Propaganda, yo! LoL

LOL cools, you never fail to crack me up with your comments :lol:

Now let's get names straight. Aurora is fine. You just typed aurUra there and people get it wrong all the time especially when they include 'la' part :D But I must admit I myself have difficulties at times, so Val.. sunnich.. whatever u want is ok. And sorry, I refuse to go for Chris :p It's just wrong. I can do Kris.. Hris.. full variant of both ^.^ cools, coolies.. whatever.. but Chris is too much for my lame russian mind

And uff, sorry but I guess it WAS russian version (some guys tell about hearing the version with 's' instead of 'm' in la-muka part but that's already *beep* material). I mean we are talking about Fadeev... the guy who came up with such huge hits as 'Mussy-Pussy' and 'Mwah Mwah Jagga-Jagga Uhh Ohh'. If you find something too absurd to believe, when it comes to Fadeev, you better believe that it's not only real but will also sell like hot cakes :lol:

Cats symbolics IS real too lol Here (http://serebro.su/phpbb2/templates/subSilver/images/logo_2.jpg) and here (http://serebro.su/phpbb2/templates/subSilver/images/logo_1.jpg) - that's their official branding, you can also see them wearing caps with it in that Helsinki report. I also find it easy to believe that Fadeev made them travel to Latin America to meet that his shaman friend. He's been known to be into this stuff. I fail to believe this branding wasn't something they came up much long before that visit tho ;)

oh and also: http://chel.kp.ru/UserFiles/Temnikova.jpg ooops, and she thought that wearing that dress to the rehersals could help for the gold!

This is 'Thee dress' that did attract some attention to them in Helsinki and for a moment made Lena's boobs more famous than herself in this country. She promissed to kill some journalists after that but really, she should start with her stylist lol There was this 'Thee Dress n2' too that made latvian ESC representatives happy (http://news.mail.ru/pic/c1/87/35212_source.jpg) :lol:
That screaming part in the end is Lena's folk past talking in her lol And I doubt mics for other girls were turned off. They just weren't ready to jump from being no ones to all this fuss and I guess there was this strategy for Lena to entertain for all 3 and other 2 just had to try not to faint lol

And yeah. All those songs you've listed are indeed classics :p
Ochi Chyorniye and Kalinka are not WWII related while Katyusha and Moldovanka are. 2 more war classics:
Siniy Platochek (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBoG4OtDYS0) - sang by Lazarev & Savitcheva and really, if not those costumes, I'd have trouble understanding which one is leaving for war there lol The difference in masculinity isn't that obvious :lol:
Ogonyok (Na pozitsiyu devushka provozhala boytsa) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hI676rNi-PU&NR) - sang by Fabrika. Now it's always funny to see bands like this singing patriotic songs. I mean if there are ethalons of 'singing panties' in this country, Fabrika is definitely one of them

c'mon, dont be ridiculous! I know that their branding is CATS, but c'mon.... that shaman story is like believing Tatu when they said that "all the songs are about our lives"... its simple PR. what do you say over there in Moscow: voobshheeeeee, eto prosto PiaR... da, vot'! :laugh: vot' vot'

lol I somehow think the 'Hosts I find annoying' list I sent them reached their office :lol: Or may be it's just those cigars had something funny in them. Anyway, for that host alone, I can forgive them almost everything.
Muz-TV interview (http://www.sendspace.com/file/5yjxot)
Male host: You know, me and Aurora get this wierd feeling for some reason, like we are sort of giants compared to these cute but strangely small girls
Lena: Bleh small is not short, tall is not long. It's not the same
Male host: Well despite her young age and size she seems to understand how sizes work pretty well
Lena: What I don't understand is the way your humor works
Male host: Oukey *getting busy listening to the voice in his headphone*
Female host says 'I didnt hear what you just talked about' and tries to pour some honey over those bunnies calling them national heroes etc but they obviously pay more attention to the song playing on background. Marina's look to male host is also something.
<To explain my love to this host, couple of other 'achievements' of the guy at this ceremony: he managed to call Tokio Hotel's bodyguards 'fascists' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nNASu9AoqOg) in front of the whole country, all he could say to Pussy Cat Dolls was 'go go go' and he didn't even dare to come close to Aguilera commenting at her from the distance with his fellow like 'isn't she goddamn hot? aww but she's too short (wtf is with him and height?) and she holds her dress down.. she shouldn't, we've seen it all already'. They soo should punch him in the face>

Muz-TV performance (http://www.sendspace.com/file/oatwkk)
Well they got pyrotechnics! They did Red2 version with extended dancing break and they seemed to be one of the few to make a difference to the crowd cheering 'Tokio Hotel' all the way from the start of the show. It's also funny how they managed to get on same stage with PussyCat Dolls so early in their career and how our idiots on MUZ-tv accidentaly made Serebro look better lol It's not that hard to be better than PCD with half of their mics off :lol:

huh? maybe i am too tired from hollering heavy objects up and down stairs, but this isnt making any sense lol... except that the host was annoying - good for Lena for putting him in place about the height! this is coming from someone who is probably shorter than them - how tall are they again?

you russians! :lol: ... but how funny is it that the pussy cat dolls were there - ive always called Serebro the russian pussy cat dolls when i saw they are running for eurovision lol

i dont know, i dont know ... i saw the aguilera performance http://youtube.com/watch?v=5LBz9jQ3j00 and they need to learn lots more on how to use the stage. look at christina working the stage back and forth - moving is a key, serebro stand pretty much in one spot and their dancers were just cludding the stage for most of the performance.. standing in one place as well! speaking of the stage - that is one of the UGLIEST stages i have seen in my life! at the very end when temnikova took off her jacket and made a few steps there was a progress, but they need a lot more of that...

oh and finally - what the hell did they say at the end? "Get your fucking dresses down? " :lol: or glasses?

oh and i cannot believe that the american aguilera was the sluttiest dressed one at the event! whats up russians?! lol

p.s. i forgot to mention my fav moment of lena, during the interview when she was dancing along to the background music and ignoring the host... very gay moment for her :lol: .. or at least she gave off little gay vibes right then...

lol cools, you can't seriously compare them and Aguilera. I mean one may like or dislike her but she's goddamn professional with years of touring experience and shitloads of shows/albums sold. It's just another ligue and she really stole that show. Everyone was like 'wow', crowd reacted damn good and people kept talking after the show. This girl KNOWS her job really well.

Serebro are 100% amateurs compared to her lol Just like the rest of our show-business. I mean that was like their 2nd performance overall :lol: Couple of months ago they themselves had no idea they were going to perform any soon. And then they got 1 month to prepare for ESC and couple of weeks full with daily interviews and photoshoots to prepare for Muz-TV awards lol All foreign guests for the show were known in a long advance, Serebro are one of those 'last moment' decisions just like Koldun guy. I compared them to Pussy Cat Dolls only due to the fact they were called 'copy' of this band by many people and it's just funny how they met so soon and how Serebro didn't really look that pale compared to that 'Ya Praskovya' girls :lol:

Here (http://www.sendspace.com/file/vmysi8)'s a better quality video of their performance. Well, it's better because it's in stereo unlike the previous one and it's more obvious it was live which is damn impressive when it comes to our show-business. They started on level majority of our 'stars' can't get to after years of career. I hope audience doesn't reject them for that. Being a pro isn't that popular here :lol:

- they are 165, 164 and 158 cm tall which does make them look like midgets compared to relatively tall people
- I guess it was 'Get your fucking asses down' (has no idea what they really meant)
- no, Aguilera wasn't the sluttiest there ;) we had our domestic Paris Hilton in there and some other stars that never have money for dresses that can cover anything lol But the sluttiest of all girls was SirGay Lazarev for sure. He made a great host that evening but his performance was pure p0rn and not only looks-wise but vocally too lol
- I understand Lena when it comes to that interview, I mean that song by Tokio is really sexy unlike bullshit Razygraev was talking :D

04-06-2007, 01:35
oh I fogot to explain that 'Hosts I find annoying' thingie.

You see, there are always those people on tv that you'd slap if you could. And Serebro somehow managed to 'run over' a couple of my 'favs' lately. I hate it how those guys believe they are all cool and that 'being offensive' = 'being funny'. And they keep getting away with it all the time because most of their guests are too polite to shut them up. They smile at those lame jokes and try staying cool even if you can clearly see them feeling uncomfortable. And Lena seems to be too much of a village girl to play those games :p She's not doing that tatu's 'let's just be rude to the guy' thing. She makes it worse by shutting them up at the moment they deserve it the most, so audience knows he asked for that. And she does it in calm way with straight face, so you know she's serious and it's more of self-respect thingie than 'I'm a star and have right to be an ass' thing. And these guys find themselves in really shitty position when they were basicly told to fuck off and at the same time they can't turn it into joke coz they know they deserved it and audience knows and they know audience knows and another lame joke would only make bigger fools of them :D It's so effective, almost genious.

First they got Andrey Malakhov (and I'm sure 99% of this country is very happy they did). Lena obviously has something going on with him as he was the first one ever to interview them and back then already Lena wasn't happy with him making moves on Marina. And then he's the first to interview them after ESC and he's there all happy with himself trying to provoke shit about Marija Sherifovich and making nasty comments (smth like 'that nasty lesbian didn't get our girls, our girls prefere real men') and at the same time having his hands all around girls obviously believing HE IS one of those real men. Lena refuses to get into that Marija talk but agrees they like real men.. and even gives a list of her 7 husbands and not only forgets to include Malakhov for the sake of being playful and friendly but also openly tells him that sorry, he doesn't fit in there and then when the guy still doesn't get the hint and keeps getting too close, she tells him to please not touch her and Marina too. And that is :D The guy was basicly told he's old and dirty, he's not real man and he's not deserving anything someone he called disgusting lesbian doesn't deserve, that's he's not better and may be even worse :lol: and he can't do nothing as he knows he's very close to loosing this interview totally, so he's all 'uh oh' and tries to change topic. And girls sit there smiling and friendly like nothing happened. They weren't really rude, it was like if someone stepped on your leg and didn't notice and you just asked to please let your leg go and keep friendly chat. Priceless.

And now this Razygraev guy who first made comment on them being short that was pretty cold.. not one of those 'aww so small and cute' things. He could get away with it totally by saying something neutral in reply to Lena's not too angry joke but he didn't get the hint and over-did himself making that comment on how Lena is so young and knows everything about sizes (it was obvious by his guastures that it were male sizes he meant, so it was like calling her young whore). He looked pretty happy with himself but when he got cold 'I don't get your humor' (that wasn't 'hahaha you bad boy, lets pretend I didnt get what you mean hihi' or 'I'm really sorry, didn't get what you mean' but was 'I did get it and you are lame'), he didn't really know what to reply. He said 'good' and let female host save the situation.

That Rambler lady annoyed me with her sick sweetness and being all 'oh oh I'm so good, if something goes wrong, I'm gonna be the one to blame blah blah' thing before and I can't say I was totally unhappy with her getting teased for that :rolleyes:

Couple of more to go and I'll be able to watch TV in peace knowing everyone who deserved a slap got it :p As far as those Serebro girls are hot and are making me happy person by treating people I feel annoyed with this way, I'm their fan :D They don't even need to sing. This is what I meant.

And now tabloids moment : )
I must say those guys in yellow media get better and better lately. What they write now does sound like Semyonov already. This divorce story long ago became more interesting than marriage itself lol

So the guy tells a sad story of how madly in love he was, how they understood each other so well and he wanted nothing but to be with her blah blah blah. And he's an adult who's tired of many things. He wanted family, kids and all those cute things married people do (that's EXACTLY what you can count on marrying crazy career hungry 18 yo) but after marriage they realized they have completely different ideas on what family is and that they should get divorced before all this ESC fuss began as even though he's experienced and thick-skinned by now, he still feels very frustrated and hurt reading things she says about their relationship. Thier friends and Lena herself know how seriously in love he is with her and he forgives all this shit just for the sake of that wedding day he was the happiest man alive at.

And guess what? )) The guy signed a contract with some publishing agency here for his book about love. He always was into writing (well ok, that seems to be true). As an answer for the question who he was inspired by for his book, the guy quoted his devotion note:
'If not my obsessive love to this beautiful scum who destroyed me and our relationship by that locked toilet door, I'd never write this book. I hate you, bitch... and I devote this to you'
Cuteh isn't it :lol: That's what I call entertainment. Who'd think just few years ago that this marriage would turn into such a fat juicy PR for both. I bet the guy keeps fingers crossed for Serebro project and wishes them to do really well. I mean book is coming out in autumn lol

thanks darling... im downloading, the mono was killing me.. and i was wondering if it was live... i thought i asked, but i guess i forgot.. i couldnt tell with the mono.

oh please, i am 158 :lol:

- I guess it was 'Get your fucking asses down' (has no idea what they really meant)
me neither, ask whoever writes their songs, they are on some crack i swear....

But the sluttiest of all girls was SirGay Lazarev for sure.
:lol: you crack kme up.. i off to youtube to see him!

and about all the gray stuff you wrote, i agree, i like when lena shuts them up.. i can see it is not like tatu - rude to be rude - when the guy called them short and little, her reaction and head shake was priceless.....

And yeah, I've seen that interview on TV. It also cracked me up how Olya sees dirt on her hand and sits there all confused and Marina gives her this 'oh u idiot' look and tells to leave the camera view :lol: And yeah they are obviously aware of this 'princess Lena' thing. She always appears in some goofy way and almost always late and other 2 girls are like 'oh here SHE is' or they tell about spending whole night trying to pack Lena's suitcase or how Marina's is her driver, Olya - her interpreter and how she always asks them to do things around the house for her. It's like 'oh I know I'm lame princess type but you know you love me' and 'yeah we know she's that lame princess type but it's pretty cute' thing. They seem to get along well.

I've seen that 'High Ligue' program on tv and although the vid does exist somewhere (it was removed from most sources due to size I guess), it doesn't have that precious don't touch me' moment as the girl who ripped it ran out of space on her comp :( But I can bet it's not over yet :p Lena and Malakhov are just damned to meet again and again as he hosts 2 major shows on Channel 1 and even in their first appearance as Serebro (http://youtube.com/watch?v=9waEu1oH0ww) attentive eye will notice the war going on. Probably it began when Lena was on this show earlier as solo singer. It's not really hard to get to hate this guy. Plus he's close to obsessed with Marina and Lena just won't let him to get as close as he tries :lol: He had Lena Terleeva (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=je0kwm8RzXo) on his show not so long ago and tried to get her to talk shit about Serebro and their stardome counting on rival feelings one would expect in situation Temnikova & Terleeva are in. He just can't get over this and the show will go on.

And btw, that 'Prascovia' thing. The funniest part is that she really has it in her name :lol: I mean it's sooo russian that even we, russians, find it too russian to call our children that

* E.. [sounds like 'ye']. I'm not sure author himself fully knows what he meant by saying some tender love is like E. It doesn't even matter if it's 'E' like letter or 'yeah', anyway the first idea 99 out of 100 young (and dirty) minds will get will be the word <ebat' - fuck> and it still makes no sense this way but who cares, right?

** Yammi-yammi girls. For most russians it will be as meaningful as 'jagga-jagga' but I bet originally it comes from the word 'yummy'

*** Russian word 'kray' can mean many things actually... edge of something.. border.. geographical region.. and I somehow get the impression it could mean curves of one's body in this song.. and 'sledit' can mean watch.. watch out.. spy.. look at.. be careful of.. well you get the idea that there's hardly any idea in there

**** La-muka.. it's probably a mix of something french and lalalala. Muka with the stress over 'u' means torture.. pain... and with stress over 'a' it means flour and I'm not really sure which of those makes less sense.. but I get this impression it's something painful but sweet and playful.. probably it's this 'la' that does it to me

***** Someone from behind decided/thought we are ... ahah... cats. Now that's quite a typical way to make a joke here. You take a line that should rythm and there's some nasty word in the end and you make a pause and replace it with something else.. that doesn't rythm, that doesn't even make much of sense.. so everyone knows what you meant but at the same time you didn't really say it. There aren't that many words that would fit in there actually if I think about it.. the obvious one would be 'blyadi' which translates as 'whores' or 'sluts' if you like. I get this image of them walking the streets and some guys follow them at the distance and suddenly it hits them that those girls they see are.. cats. Yeah, that's it. Isn't it quite common thinking of random people like that. Like you see someone and think: oh he's a bear.. and that guy on the other side of the street is goddamn giraffe. Happens every day to me.

****** So we got something spinning again and now it's not only her but him too! I must tell you a secret: I actually got what that 'my bad ass spinning for you' line meant. Probably it takes to be russian to understand the way russian mind can work. But with this russian version author went even further, now even I am confused. But let's try. So that tender love that is like E.. did something to them and got things spinning. Word by word it's something like 'got spinning this something of you, got spinning mine'. Now it's not that hard to guess which part of her is spinning.. it's ass.. well not really, it's her head. Grammatically it just gives this idea the girl from this song got what gracefull Olivia Lewis calls 'vertigo'. But when it comes to the guy, it gets really tough.. grammatically it just gives this impression it's some part of his body that is spinning and it's not head.. and probably not ass either as it would be really wierd if it was.. now when I think more of it I realize I don't really want to think about it. Let me leave it like this. Things are just spinning...

wow val... that's one hell of an explanation ... thanks, i was wondering what "yammi yammi" was supposed to mean... haha, but i think that's the least of the problems, haha

yeah, Greg. The problem with this song is that they couldn't make it too sweet after that english version and at the same time russian variants of those 'interesting' words are way too offensive to include them openly. So they had to use tricks.. and our lyricists love making it messy even without needing to deal with such specific lyrics. I know you know a lot about it ;)

Yammi-yammi was the easiest. They had this 'I'll take your money, yummy' line in english version and they liked how it sounds. Russians won't know what it means.. they'll take it as something random and I won't be surprised seeing 'devchonki yammi-yammi' becoming some kind of lable for young, agressive, attractive and self-confident girls. Just like our generation if often called 'Generation P' or 'Generation Pepsi' after that book by Victor Pelevin. Media loves such things.

'I'll take your money, yummy'

Well official lyrics had 'yummy' in there ;) And 'yammi' sounded pretty clear to me

and I'm 164 )) and people keep looking down at me and calling me midget lol Now we just need to find some fake 160-fewsomething blond (Katina is about that high too afair) and we are packed for successful career :lol: Audience loves midgets with attitude it seems.
i dont know of a single person in BG that is shorter than me, however here in the usa, there are PLETNY! lol

And yeah, I've seen that interview on TV. It also cracked me up how Olya sees dirt on her hand and sits there all confused and Marina gives her this 'oh u idiot' look and tells to leave the camera view :lol: And yeah they are obviously aware of this 'princess Lena' thing. She always appears in some goofy way and almost always late and other 2 girls are like 'oh here SHE is' or they tell about spending whole night trying to pack Lena's suitcase or how Marina's is her driver, Olya - her interpreter and how she always asks them to do things around the house for her. It's like 'oh I know I'm lame princess type but you know you love me' and 'yeah we know she's that lame princess type but it's pretty cute' thing. They seem to get along well.
god, i need coupld of girls to take care of me - Val, wanna be #1? :gigi:

Lena and Malakhov are just damned to meet again and again as he hosts 2 major shows on Channel 1 and even in their first appearance as Serebro (http://youtube.com/watch?v=9waEu1oH0ww) attentive eye will notice the war going on. Probably it began when Lena was on this show earlier as solo singer. It's not really hard to get to hate this guy. Plus he's close to obsessed with Marina and Lena just won't let him to get as close as he tries He had Lena Terleeva (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=je0kwm8RzXo) on his show not so long ago and tried to get her to talk shit about Serebro and their stardome counting on rival feelings one would expect in situation Temnikova & Terleeva are in. He just can't get over this and the show will go on.
thats the guy? HA! Ive seen that video and thought it was funnt... but i gotta admit, all of them, esp Lena and Marina look smoking there!!!!! I think it is also the attitude they are giving - i die for girls with attitude! :chupa:... and the guy is a pure idiot! stop talking about how the guys are drooling over them - the girls are as well lol. and how the hell is lena korikova? i liked Marinas reaction to his saying that she looks like her LOL ... and her dog is called chika :lol:
but Val, what did Lena try to say when the guy commented that MArina is blonde and draws his eyes towards her... Lena try to bitch but he totally shut her up and took the mic away! :lol: could you hear? then he put his hand on lena's knee and then shamelesly asked what signs they are... to which lena had to inhale as to not to punch him and passed on the question - so now i dont know what sign she is lol
while we are at it, when he told them that they are probably gonna bring home silver eh? @ 1:54 lena's look at him was priceless.... if her eyes were knives, that guy was right then cut into many pieces!

And btw, that 'Prascovia' thing. The funniest part is that she really has it in her name :lol: I mean it's sooo russian that even we, russians, find it too russian to call our children that
wait, in bulgaria Praskova means Peach and that girl cracked me up. ... but isnt peach apel'sin in russian... or was that Orange? i always get those confused

omg, it was no joke, THAT was the actual russion version - how SAD! achaaaaaaaa, what a bunchaaaaaaaaaaaa piecaaaaaaaaaaaaa shitaaaaaaaaaaaaa! :lol: yummy mummy, it isnt even funny, imma gonna go vomit ahhhh and then change my Palomitaaaa (http://palomita.com/product/index.php?c=46&p=135&nav=6.46.0).....bah buy-chaaaaa

god, i need coupld of girls to take care of me - Val, wanna be #1?
LOL well I must say being your #1 sounds VERY tempting but I can bet we have different ideas on our future together :rolleyes: When my friends come to my place, they know they better get some food with them or be ready to cook for themselves and me too :lol: You have to make me feel really guilty or scared to get me playing this hospitable host for a short while :p

thats the guy? HA! Ive seen that video and thought it was funnt... but i gotta admit, all of them, esp Lena and Marina look smoking there!!!!! I think it is also the attitude they are giving - i die for girls with attitude! :chupa:... and the guy is a pure idiot! stop talking about how the guys are drooling over them - the girls are as well lol. and how the hell is lena korikova? i liked Marinas reaction to his saying that she looks like her LOL ... and her dog is called chika :lol:

Lena Korikova (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRKSF6GIkhc) is an actress here that this idiot dated and got dumped by :lol: He just can't get over it it seems.
He doesn't really shut Lena up in that moment. Her remark was complete, it just was adressed to him more than the audience. She said 'oh, Andrey, still trying to sell the book...' (This idiot is obsessed with blonds and couple of years ago he published a book called 'My favourite blondes'). In that show after ESC, she took it bit further. He was all over Marina again and Lena was in much more emotional and agressive mood, so she was like 'Andrey! It's been goddamn 2 years. Haven't you sold enough? Does it sell THIS bad?' lol Well I can't remember exact words but it was smth like this. There was this episode when he began playing on that marriage story everyone knows Lena is annoyed with by now, he began asking about it again and again like 'Lena.. tell us.. what's up with your husband? Are you really free?' and stuff. She said she in fact had 7 husbands and asked girls to help her to remember their names (they came up with some random Hollywood actors) and then she looked at Malakhov who once again got too close and was like 'sorry, Andrey.. we love macho men of course but you aren't material we'd consider' lol Then at that 'don't touch me.. and Marina too' moment she told him he was too old for them. And there was this moment his mouth once again got ahead of his brain and he said smth like 'ok ok we won't throw that bouquette to the audience' and Lena looked at him all serious and said 'of course you won't, it's not yours, it's mine' lol She never misses a chance to quietly put him down to the earth. Most of the time it's direct remarks to him. I remember only once she really looked to the camera and said 'you see, there are some things I know better than Andrey' (meaning 'this guy is trying to look so cool and macho but he's a big looser in fact'). I guess it started at that talk show some time ago.. it was about early sex, marriages and pregnancy. And this idiot asked for her opinion on this because 'she was province and knew better how things are there' :lol: Or may be smth happened at some party. In last few years they both were partying a lot.

Praskovya is just some old russian name. It doesn't mean anything. It's just soo old-fasioned and orthodox. Peach = persik, orange = apelsin : )

H: Hello. It's "Stars Online" show on KM-Tv and its host Anna Dobrovolskaya. "SEREBRO" are our guests today. Hello all three: Lena, Olya, Marina, very nice to see you

*girls wave hello*

Before we get started, I'd like to give you this present *hands over some DVD*. It's 'Big Encyclopedia by Kirill and Mephody', here you are.

Marina: Wow
Lena: Wow, thank you really much
Olya: Big thank you
Lena: Thanks, it's really cool

H: I'd like to remind our viewers that could have missed this spectacular Eurovision show, that SEREBRO band gave a great performance there and finsihed 3rd which is a great result, especially considering the fact it was their first big performance in front of the audience, wasn't it?

Lena: Yes, that's absolutely true and we believe it's somewhat symbolic. Good start.

H: Yes, good start. By the way, judging by amount of questions we got from our audience, you can say it was really a great performance and some very good start.

Marina: Thank you

H: And that's why today.. well, usually it's me to ask most of the questions and we throw in a couple of questions from the audience but today I decided to make an exception. Today girls will be answering YOUR questions, our dear friends.

H: First question is by 'ilonka' who asks: 'Tell us please, is it hard to be famous, do you think of yourselves as real stars?' and I'll add something from myself: 'Do you think you are ready for all this fame that you suddenly got?'

Lena: I think.. Can I answer this for all three?

H: Yes sure

Lena: I think we don't fully realize what's going on at the moment. And thanks god that we don't. A lot is happening in last half a year or so. Sometimes we get the feeling it's been half a life already.. because there are lots of shows, conversations, interviews.. many people say kind words to us and we do react on them. Our life is crazy. Days get so long, they seem endless. What we really feel now is tiredness. For some it may seem that we are starting to get this stardome syndrome but really, it's just tiredness that we'll get rid of pretty soon.

H: So you have vacation planned for nearest future?

Lena: Yes, vacation for a week or so

H: And where are you going if it's not a secret?

Lena: We don't know yet. Unfortunaly it's our director, producer to decide such things but..

Olya: I guess it will be some quiet place and we'd love to have sea there because it's summer

Lena: It will be great there, I know

H: Are you going there together?

Serebro: Yes, of course

H: Um but aren't you tired of each other by now?

Lena: Not yet. It's been just half a year, we aren't tired yet

H: Ok, while we are at stardome question, here's another one for you. I can't find it in this mess but I remember it was there: 'Aren't you afraid of getting this stardome syndrome?'

Lena: Well ok... I had it once already. I think it will help me to avoid it in future but then 'never say never'. There was this moment after Star Factory show when I behaved.. hehe.. not really cool even with close friends and family. I really lost the plot for some time. I believed it was me all the way. That I was super-talented girl who knew it all. Really, it looked laughable from outside. And I really hope I won't have it coming back because it's really not nice.

H: But you got cured from that, how?

Lena: Time. Time went by and popularity I had faded away and thanks god it did. I was just sitting at home, reading, going out, chatting with friends and working with Max Fadeev. We were doing those recordings.. it just happened. I somehow grew up.. people around me explained me some things.. and I remembered something myself. Now all is cool. We have this band for a year already and we.. you know, we came on stage to sing, to create, to give audience everything we have inside and we really have a lot there. We aren't there to be a part of this partying crowd, to learn what's cool and what's not for them, to behave accordingly. We don't want all that. If we don't forget what we are here for, we aren't really in much risk of getting this stardome.

H: And you, Lena, did you share this your experience with your band-mates to help them to avoid problems of this kind?

Lena: Nah. My girls are mature enough. Olya had experience of working with Irakli for example

Olya: I've seen many of those things from outside and I think.. I hope that this stardome problem won't affect me. It's very important to stay an adequate person, to understand what's going on. I agree with most of what Lena said already.

H: Marina, and you?

Marina: I believe that the most important thing is not to loose yourself, not to change to the worst. I think I'll manage it somehow.

H: Let's hope you will. We got a question by Faramir from Odintsovo: 'Tell us please how do you deal with emotions before coming on stage?' There was one more person asking near the same.. doubt I'll find that one.. but he also added that different people have their own ways: some try to isolate themselves from everyone, some, on the opposite, need a good company.. they sing.. dance.. and whatever else. What about you? Do you have your recipe against all those nerves and excitement? And did you have all this at all?

Lena: Excitement is a wonderful feeling and you can't do without it. Excitement.. but not fear of going to the stage. It's something every artist has to feel if he's a real artist. It doesn't matter how big the audience is, how many people come to see us: 5 or millions.. oyh me.. I got my eyes shining even thinking of that. No, really. We weren't that nervous before going on stage but we did have a bit of that nice feeling of course.

Olya: It was more of impatience to go there and see it all
Lena: We weren't talking much about this but all this time there in Helsinki, we really wanted the day to come faster because..
Marina: We were really impatient to get there, honestly speaking..
Lena: Like a bull, you know, that stomps the ground..
Olya: I remember when we were in the car going to Arena for the final performance, we were soo eager. We'd love to push Fwd button and find ourselves on the stage at that moment.

H: We have a question from the user called Nastyuha that seems to know about some interesting moments of Eurovision. She asks: 'A question to Marina: Marina, why were you performing without shoes in your stockings alone? Was it because they were stolen? But I thought you had an extra pair of those'. I couldn't really skip this question.

Marina: Honestly speaking I never performed without shoes. I had them on. It's just that someone stole my shoes before the performance.. 1 day before it and we had to replace them with another pair that was different from what girls had.

H: Uh who stole them? Who'd need a pair of your shoes?

Marina: Someone probably tried to ruin our performance...

Lena: Or probably someone just needed them more *laughs*

Marina: There were few people like that in there as it weren't only shoes.. well nothing but shoes got stolen but there were other destructive things happening

H: Like what? What would they do not to let you to go on stage you were so impatient to get on?

Lena: We told a lot about this already, Unfortunately, this situation with dressing-room was pretty tough. It happened so that half an hour prior to our performance we found ourselves dirty with some wierd liquid looking like glue. It looked very bright white on black clothes. But as our dressing-room was all wtite, just like this room, it was hard to notice..

H: And chairs were white too..

Lena: And chairs too, yeah. And everything dirty. Our mood got a bit.. well it was quite hard to stay calm in that situation but we were lucky enough to have some extra dresses and guys went to get those, so we could change. The worst part was that organisators refused to give us either new dressing-room or even a couple of spare chairs to sit on. Because, well.. standing there all this time we waited for performance was a bit uncomfortable. Although.. I always said and never mind repeating this again and again: Russia is a strong country and people living here are strong. If they are afraid of us, if they find us important enough to do all that, we take it as compliment.

H: Uhuh.. well it's good that you managed to overcome all that

file 2

H: We have a question from Dimka who asks: 'Girls, what kind of flowers do you prefer? I'm dreaming of giving you a great bouquet'.

Lena: Wow.. thanks a lot

Marina: My favourite flowers are.. it's interesting how me and Lena have the same list because my favourites are white lilies and Lena's too. Second favourite flowers of mine are white tulips and it's same for Lena, can you believe..

Lena: Uhuh and I also love daisies.. small ones from the field

H: So Dimka knows now what to give you

Olya: Whait a second, can I tell Dimka what I want? *laughs*

H: Yes, yes and yes

Lena: We can easily have an argument over flowers

Olya: I love cornflowers and roses. It's boring of course but it's true. I love red roses very much

H: Dimka, you better remember this. There's a question from Alyonka: 'Girls, would you like to do a photoshoot for MAXIM or PlayBoy may be?'

Lena: No, we would not. I don't think we really need it. You know.. if you remember what I said about stardome.. I said that when you get into show-business, it's very important to remember what you are there for. If we start doing things everyone does now, I mean posing for such magazines, we will.. we'll get lost in the crowd

Olya: It doesn't mean we believe it's bad

Lena: Yes, we don't say it's a bad thing to do. Probably.. one day.. we have this PR team that can say 'you need this' but.. I really wouldn't want this to happen.

Marina: I'd like to add also that sexuality can be shown through other things than absense of clothes..

Lena: Demonstration of the body..

H: Like what?

Marina: Like one can deliever it through the look in his eyes..

Lena: Scent Of A Woman.. the movie

H: Yeah I know that one, so do our viewers I guess

Lena: Yes.. woman afterall is.. I think that even leaving some buttons done *shows on Olya*, it's already sexier than when you have hell knows what here *shows on herself*.. well when it's too obvious you have here I mean.

Olya: By the way, if you remember our ESC performance, many people say that our costumes being as 'open' as they were, still were one of the sexiest this year

H: Yes, I agree with this. We have a question by Tima: 'Do you like looks of each other? What do you like the most?'

Lena: *looks at Olya* Lips!

Marina: I like Lena's nose very much. It's a really great one, I believe. And Olya's lips are really something!

Lena: We are all fine actually. All very beautiful. Naming anything in particular is.. eh.. you know mothers. Every mother loves her child and believes he's the most beautiful. And we love each other a lot and think of each other as most beautiful and best in all ways possible. Because we love sincerely. Looking at some things separately.. why really.. oh Marina has the longest eye-lashes I've seen in my life.. And if we start to..

Olya: And I like Marina's dimples..

Lena: And modesty.. well really.. we are strongly attached to each other

H: A question from the user who's nick I find very hard to read: 'Is it true that Lena had some conflict with Yulia Savicheva? I can see it's over now if it ever existed of course'

Lena: *sighs* Oh Yulia.. Yulia.. Hello! Every day when we meet each other it's like the hot topic of the day for us. 'So what's up today? And what have you heard? And I heard this interesting news' etc. This story was made up by journalists.. and well-wishers that probably wanted to help us with some extra PR. Even black PR is still PR, you know. But in reality everything is cool between us. It's just happened that once Yulia said that thing about us getting shaking knees at ESC. That's because she knows what it's like and how tough it can be. But I understand that Yulka was a real kid when she went there and it was probably harder for her than it was for us. And I just said we won't get this syndrome.. and that's all. Everyone has his moments but we definitely have no conflict. She's like younger sister.

H: Question from Adam: 'What's your real hair color?' He somehow believes what you have now is different

Marina: Well this seems pretty real to me *laughs*

Lena: She wakes up with this one like every morning. And doesn't do anything with it. Me and Olya have natural hair color. Real *points at Marina* and natural *points at Olya and herself*

H: He also asks: 'Do you smoke?'

Lena and Marina: No

H: Uhuh by the way..

Lena: We did play with that. I have to be honest yes.. but no. Because we are girls afterall.. First of all it's not attractive. Second - I'm very happy that at this moment many countries are strcitly against smoking.. it means children will be born healthy. Honestly speaking, I, as non-smoking person, feel bad when I go along the corridor and smell cigarretes. It's not nice at all. We got too many smoking people in Russia and something has to be done with it.

Marina: Yeah.. like in Europe.. healthy lifestyle

Olya: We were very positevely surprised with the fact they have this impressive anti-smoking campain in Helsinki.. whole country and Europe and we'd love to see same in Russia..

Lena: You can smoke.. I mean you can't even smoke on the street. Only in some rare places specially for that

Marina: Here we had it easy always. Like you could see 2 tables next to each other and one would belong to the smoking zone and another to non-smoking one. It didn't really help. I heard we have this law out that..

H: Makes things more strict

Lena: Thanks to ones who did that

H: But.. another user told us he saw you with cigars at MUZ-tv awards ceremony

Lena: Ah.. well cigars... cigars are my passion. Oyh you know, cigarettes are something small and disgusting. And cigars are like religion. It's a cult.. real pleasure

Olya: Some process.. like ritual. It's very nice

Lena: Plus our song is about girls like.. us. We had those suits and hats.. that image. And cigars.. look my fingers reacted *laughs* cigars really helped us with that.

H: So you often smoke cigars?

Lena: No. Very rarely, because cigars are still harmful.. it's still nicotine and.. No.

H: We got a question from someone called Sench. Question to Marina: 'How free is your heart? Do you have a boyfriend?'

Marina: My heart is almost 100% free. Exeption is.. well I got these 2 girls living in there and some other important people but I don't have a boyfriend.

H: I guess Sench will be happy enough with this answer. There's also this question from Alyusha who asks Lena: 'I'd love to know if you had man that won over your attitude in your life and if yes, why aren't you together?'

Lena: Nope, Alyosha, Unfortuately I haven't met such a man.. not a single one. I'd love to and I don't know.. I guess this question isn't random because I've like let this loud cry out: A man.. if you can break my horns, attitude.. whatever.. come and knock my door'. Because really.. somehow we don't have that many real men anymore. Real men are like sexual minority already. And among those few.. that we already better carry on our hands.. there's me with my complicated personality. You know how tough being me is

H: What makes your personality complicated?

Lena: Well, I'm too.. they used to call me 'commander' when I was a kid. I love ordering people around. Absolute leader and it's not easy to deal with me. Girls feel good around me because each of us has her own territory, her own moment where she's the leader, so each gets her turn. But for some reason with men I.. I guess I just need a man that would be stronger than me.

H: Are you sure this is what you need?

Lena: Yes, absolutely. Just not now. I don't have time now. Too much work.. eh.. but I'd very like it in some few years..

Marina: Something -teen or -ty years

Lena: Hey no no.. I'll be too old already by that time. Few years

H: Nastya got a question: 'Lena.. we all got by now that you love men REALLY much...'

Lena: Once and forever. Right here in this live broadcast, right? I have to share it with everyone.. Ok, Nastya. You see, this is quite a complicated situation I'm in. Eh.. Nastya *tries to find the right cam to look at*

H: Yes, here she is

Lena: So the situation is.. I really really love men.. love them as just men. I belive men are flowers of this life, decoration of this life.. Like children. And I love flirt a lot. Love when they give me flowers and when.. well it's all flirt actually. But to let him really close like close enough for some 'physical action', if this is what we talk about here.. very very few can get that. Considering the fact I.. I'm 22...

*pause*

*all 4 start laughing*

Lena: I'm just thinking.. It's a live broadcast and I'm thinking if I should or should not say things.. Well whatever, Nastya.. by the way, how old is she? Didn't she write that?

H: Not unfortunately

Lena: So, Nastya. At 18 I was still a virgin. And now I'm 22 and I don't really have that much experience and I.. well I have to say this for the future: Man, if you consider me in 'that' way, then we take each other by the hand.. go see a doctor.. show each other medical papers like this.. and contraception of course. And still it will be very-very-very-very far from everyone. And besides that my love to men is just flirt and yeah.

H: Nastya also writes: 'They say that you date Igor Sinelschikov' I must admit having no idea who he is

Lena: I have an idea who he is. He's the brother of my best friend. Yeah.. funny story. We read this article together with him and had a great laugh. You know it's always so with public people (and he's also public enough). People keep saying nasty things.. you undertsand I guess. And here we got best friend.. brother.. and.. it's really just rumors. I love Igor very much and he's really someone I care about but it's just friendship

H: But where they got this idea from? Why?

Lena: I don't know why. Someone just.. who wrote that by the way? Ah yeah.. some paper, I remebered. Yeah.. they write a lot of stuff about me.. like I've been married million times by now..

H: Yes I read that too

Lena: I was even married with Stallone..

H: Really?

Lena: Yes. Well I feel honored of course.. so does he. Yeah but all this is rumors. My heart is free. Alyosha!! My heart is free!

Marina: I guess people come up with all that due to lack of information on us..

Lena: They have to earn money those media.. papers..

H: Well what can you do with that..

Marina: We don't give them enough juicy stuff, so they have to use imagination

H: Olya, question for you. Everyone told us about this already.. this heart is free and this one isn't busy either. What about yours? Is it busy?

Olya: Mine is free too *laughs* No, really, it is

H: And what about your personality?

Lena: Appeasable

Olya: Well it's a tough question. Yes I really often find it not too hard to compromise, to let someone win.. But at the same time I'm Aries by zodiac and it makes such things very complicated for me. I have somewhat contradicting personality. People that I love, they have it nice.. people that I don't like..

H: Are much less lucky..

Olya: Well yeah..

H: Another question from Alyonka: 'When did you have your first real kiss? I mean not in the cheek'

Lena: Oh, Alyon.. I don't remember. The best story is..

H: You don't remember?

Lena: I honestly don't. Hm.. I'm just thinking now, may be I didn't have it at all? *laughs* There's this great story by Marina. I always laugh when hear it and would love hearing it again

Marina: Yeah.. I remember my first kiss because it's just hard to forget. I was 14 and it was some summer camp. And that boy.. well you know, first serious kiss.. french one and stuff.. and at the most important moment this boy suddenly sneezes right into my mouth.. really.. that wasn't nice at all..

H: Oh my god..

Marina: My cheeks got full like this.. yeah..

H: And then it was over

Marina: Yeah, it was for obvious reason

H: Olya, may be you remember yours?

Olya: Yes. I remember mine. But it wasn't really interesting. It happened when I was in the 9th grade (Aurora: around 15). I wasn't letting boys close for quite long when it comes to relationships. And this boy was after me for so long...

Lena: Best one in school

Olya: Yeah, he was. So one day he was walking me home and then near the door he kissed me. So it was somewhat romantic of course but..

H: But did you like him at least?

Olya: Yes I did like this boy

H: Lena, I still find it hard to believe you do't remember your first kiss

Lena: You have my word, I don't remember

H: Sad. I guess the guy won't feel nice. He kissed you and you don't even remember

Lena: You see.. I always took all kisses too serious to remember that serious one Alenka is talking about, right? Kisses in the cheek meant a lot to me. That's why I don't remember that exact one..

H: Uhuh.. I thought of this question regarding your professional activity. You have this song now and it really became a hit. It's not hard to guess that your fans and probably your haters will be waiting for the next one. So what and when? Will be hard with all those expectations

Lena: This summer. A very good song.. it's different from Song#1. It's very soft and touching

Olya: And sensual..

H: And your first song. Which version do you like more: english or russian?

Lena: English of course

H: Why?

Lena: Because it was originally written in this language. Originals are always better. We've recordered russian version because 'Russkoye Radio' asked for one. So we recordered it specially for this radio

H: Who's the author of lyrics? I remember seeing this question

Lena: Which one? Russian?

H: Yes

Lena: Russian.. um.. Maxim Fadeev.. I think. Right in front of our eyes. He just sat and wrote it and we recordered it from the 1st try, really

H: Well, you've sang it so many times that it probably wasn't..

Lena: A challenge, yeah

H: And one more question. You said yourself that you have many interviews now and you constantly go to various shows etc. What's the question journalists ask the most?

Lena: Well there were different periods.. first one was 'Why Serebro?' I learned the answer by heart already even with pauses and stuff.

Olya: And also 'What place do you plan to take?'

Lena: And 'What is your song about?'

H: Oh these ones, I see. What about 'How have you met?', don't they ask this?

Lena: Yes

Marina: But it's not most popular

Lena: It's popular enough but nothing can beat 'Why Serebro?', it's like a hit

H: Ok girls. Thank you for interesting chat...

Serebro: Uh? Is that all? Noooo.. We want more

H: Erm ok. Tell us more

Lena: We liked you and it feels really nice here

H: Ok, let's do one more

Lena: Five! Girls get 2 each and 3 for me

H: Ok.. let me find an interesting one..

file 4

H: They ask about men again. Question to Lena: 'What kind of man would you like to live what life with?'

Lena: Me? Oooh such an 'easy' question

H: Yeah, this was one I found

Lena: Oyh.. I notice men from the distance. Look in the eyes. The core. The bearing.

Olya: The way he walks

Lena: Yes, graceful walk and arms. My favourite part of a man is this part of his hand *shows the part from the elbow to fingers* I think it's very sexy. And eyes of course. He should be intellegent, educated enough.. experienced.. A bit older than me, I think because I love them having a brain. Yeah.. and it happened so that most of my childhood friends and men I fell in love with, they were older than me. Not granddads of course. I just had to say that before people get ideas again. The sexiest part of a man is his brain. And eyes.

H: And what if you meet such a man, you fall in love, loose your head.. could you leave your music career for love?

Lena: Honestly speaking.. I feel shy saying this but we have this personal talk today. I fall in love every day. And sometimes more than once. I'm very amorous. Probably it's this artistic nature talking. In traffic jam, on the street, in some caffe.. It doesn't lead to anything. I just fall in love. The person just came and left and me.. I fell in love today.. and the person was just passing by.. And real love.. I haven't met one yet. But I think if I do one day then yes of course.. it's like that stardome when you just get blind and stop understanding what you do. Just the eyes are burning and you go and push everyone aside just to be with this someone. I guess yes.. But then... It was such a long way to this. I mean the stage. I have so much to say still.. and I so enjoy those tours and people around me. I really don't know how madly in love I have to be to give up on all this. It's close to impossible.

H: And we have this another question from Alyonka again. I can see she sent quite a lot of those

Lena: Thank you, Alyonka

H: 'Love or career? Career or love?' Let's start with you, Marina

Marina: Well.. career.. is something that's very important for me at this stage of my life.

H: Is that because your heart is free or because it's really that important?

Marina: You see, in a perfect world it would be great to have both not so free heart and.. both of them. But if I really have to have this or that.. right now I choose carrer without much doubt. Because I'm not really a family type of person.

H: may be because you don't really have a family yet?

Marina: Nope.. It's just that phycology I have. Even if we talk about having children.. I beieve it's important to build up proper enviroment for that. And it's something that will take me a while to achieve

Lena: I don't think that I can give my child more by standing near kitchen sink. I have very few experience in my head. I'm not even talking about some financial situation. I have too few in my head. I'm quite a child myself still. When I get this experience then yes of course. I love children very much. Children.. a man next to me.. I'm a faithfull type despite my amorousness for 5 minutes. But all this is for a bit later. Right now I'm growing up myself.

H: Olya?

Olya: Girls said it all. It's very important for the woman to have a family, to have children. But.. really, not now. We have enough time ahead, I believe.

Lena: We are very thankful for you inviting us here..

H: Thank YOU..

Lena: Thanks to everyone who sent questions

Olya: Very big thank you

H: You can wish something to the audience..

Lena: Yes, of course. Can I wish? I want to say thank you wholeheartedly for so many questions. It felt really nice because it means you find us interesting.. and it's you we do things for.. and..

Marina: By the way, not a single negative question..

Lena: Well, they probably just didn't read those to us but..

H: Nope, we really recieved none

Lena: But thank you anyway. Thanks for supporting us, I'm almost sure you did. Thanks for following us, it feels really nice and gives us stimules.. that we don't do it for nothing. I wish you some bright sun, so no one has those depressions.. so you are happy.. healthy.. and everything is fine with people you love.. and lots-lots-lots of hapiness. Many-many minutes.. seconds... moments.. so it never ends.. so you live and say to yourself: 'oh god, how comes it's even possible to have all this happiness for one person, do I even deserve it?' So everyone can say that. So everyone is happy.

H: Thank you a lot

Olya: We just sign under those wishes

H: Can we ask you to write something in our book?

Serebro: Yes sure

Lena: Oh and thank you for this *shows DVD* it's something.. I have no idea how we are going to share that. Oh I got the idea, I'll have it all for myself!

Olya: Ehhhhhhh???!!

Lena: *smiling* We don't have a leader in this band, sorry

H: Uhuuuh.. And I remind our viewers that our guests today were Serebro. See you on KM-Tv

Serebro: Bye-bye

AiF has put some pics of from the conference online (http://gazeta.aif.ru/conf/conf/140). Poor Marina, must have felt so left out :rolleyes:


oh yeah, and just so that its not only you doing the work... here :gigi: video from THAT event http://www.aif.ru/press/detail_prmid_dta52613.html

they brought their own bottles :lol: .. and dont tell me lena is drinking Kefir? ...with peanuts ...ewwwww... lol... they are stuffing their faces like they havent seen food for days.... which might be true. Their producer keeps them on a strict diet and he wasnt present lol

ok cools, now you made me feel really embarressed for a moment. I watched this interview, I typed it down in russian, I translated it to english... and I didn't notice anything wierd in Lena's math untill you pointed it out :bum:

Thanks for the link to AiF videos. Too bad they didn't have a proper video version like they had for some others :(

What Lena drinks does indeed look like Kefir.. Ryazhenka.. yougurt.. or one of those milk+juice mixes... and it's 30C on the street. I mean who carries milk around and drinks it in situation like this? Well, I do actually. But only when I manage to kill my throat with those 'small and disgusting' ciggies as that milky stuff has this soothing effect :rolleyes:

When it comes to diets, I doubt their producer controls them that much. He's not that type plus I doubt there's any need for this as neither of girls has serious weight issues and the stress they are under at the moment is pretty tough. Someone is just a pro when it comes to stuffing one's face. This someone found out what food was at Star Factory show and never stopped since then. They warned her they'd kick her from FZ for being a lazy ass and eating all the time. Her 'Imidzh - nichto. Zhratva - vsyo. Temnikova, ne day sebe pohudyet'. Yo!' [Image is nothing. Food is everything. Temnikova, don't let yourself to get fit. Yo!] and 'Temnikova, hvatit zhrat'. Hvatit zhrat', Temnikova!' [Temnikova, stop eating like a pig. Stop eating like a pig, Temnikova!] lines are bigger hits of her than any song she sang on the show. There in 'High Ligue' show she told Malakhov food they had on the table was most likely fake, just a decoration like in all other shows and she looked like she knew what she was talking about. She's a pro! :lol: Whenever there's food Lena just won't resist. It was so in AiF, it was so in KP (http://www.kp.ru/daily/23904/67416/) and I bet it was no different in a lot of other interviews.

And while we are at this, here's an older 'interview' of the princess (http://www.sendspace.com/file/omycjr). It's a cooking show and she cooks this wierd salad she called 'Nastya and her men'. In this one she talks about her food issues at FZ, how she gained weight she still kept (by the time of the interview) and she still remembers she was actually married (even if she has difficulties choosing a proper word for that and uses the one you use when you marry a girl by mistake). Funny one because the host is all sweet and stupid but makes mocking remarks all the time and Lena is like 'Uhuh', 'Ahah' and keeps blahblahblahing non-stop often forgetting what she's on about but never stopping.

And here we go. It took only few days after that 'I'm no dating material for few years ahead' interview and Lena is already paparazzed clubbing (http://keep4u.ru/imgs/b/070609/b3e40b35e8c449673c.jpg) with one of Zapashny circus brothers. When does she find time for this, gosh. On 9th they were in Minsk, 10 St-Petersburg... and this Sunday the guy already devotes his victory in 'King of the Ring' boxing show to the 'girl with beautiful blue eyes, who recently represented Russia in some international contest, guess who yourself' :rolleyes: I mean when? She was commenting the show in May and the guy had a match in there and she wholeheartedly cheered and moaned for his opponent and now this... Ok, he's double your height (http://keep4u.ru/imgs/b/070609/918a54c7a8bc17af5b.jpg) and he can lift a lion (http://www.interfax.by/pic/27_10_05/020.jpg), wow! But he's such a bitch and not exactly a hot one.. First Semyonov, now this one. Lena, find someone hot for a change, eh?

Some girls are just born to be lezz because being straight with taste in men like this is just criminal :lol:

Well I think I've seen better pics of Yulia but still this one kinda shows this conflict between Lena & Yulia (neither of whom are from t.A.T.u) has ended or never existed in the first place. They look pretty relaxed.

So news is Marina girl showed up at their official forum today to thank fans for bday wishes they left. She did have some chat with guys there in a mixture of english and russian but said nothing important as she was busy laughing her ass off at Marina Lizorkina thread. Well.. who can blame her. At least she knows now that she's that lost 3rd Olsen sister and probably some other stuff she had no idea about before :rolleyes:

But all written above is more of excuse to post this vid (http://www.sendspace.com/file/fc5922). Ok, it's nothing new and it's fan-made (thanks Thinker) but it has some nice selection of pics & videos and it zooms in the right places quite a lot :D

Hm.. she definitely got skinnier lately. A bit more and going out with umbrella in windy day will produce funny results. (http://keep4u.ru/full/070614/c2b9412a4e59cd61ca/jpg)

And then they went to St-Petersburg to hang out on the ship (http://v.foto.radikal.ru/0706/e9/4196d4d148f1.jpg) full with big rich boys (participants of The 11th Economic Forum), dressed in their schoolgirl/monks outfits (http://v.foto.radikal.ru/0706/c1/525e45dd3d1c.jpg) and promissed to 'blow their momey, yummy!'. Having in mind that there was 13 billion 500 million dollars worth of agreements signed at this one, you can say there were lots of money to blow. Good timing, girls. Right place, right time and right song... but then.. you didn't really have much choice with the last one, eh?

Talking about having a choice, seems they have absolutely no plans to promote russian version of Song#1. I guess it really was made just for 'Russkoye Radio' that is one of the biggest here and plays material exclusively in russian. We can expect a completely new song and most likely really soon (end of June - beginning of July probably).

Here's what admin of Lena's site says. The guy is baised of course but he does have his connections and knows shit.

The song is slow and FREAKINGLY beautiful
It gets you from the first sounds and doesn't let you go till the end )
Max is a genious.
It's completely different from the first one
and we'll see new sides of the girls' talent
and will clearly hear the voice of EACH of them! )

He claims he heard the reheasal variant of it and he can't wait hearing the studio version. He also promisses tops in charts and wave of new fans. I can't say I'm convinced (having in mind his obsession with Temnikova) but I must admit being intrigued.

Well... Their "performed" songs certainly have a different sound than their actual released singles. Is this what most of their songs are going to sound like or something?

I'm starting to get into Serebro, and I'm pretty interested in their upcoming album. :p I love Dishi, and Song # 1 is such a guilty pleasure of mine. "Put a cherry on my cake and taste my cherry pie" rarely ever gets out of my head. Seriously. D:

I'm with crazy malchik, I like all the songs, but I don't have the English version of Song #1, I prefer the Russian one. But this new song is horrible in my opinion, but oh well. I guess all bands have that. The only band whose songs I truly liked without exceptions was Tatu... until I heard some of the material from the second album :p

Greg, I'll say it again - mind-reader! :D

This performance at "Novaya volna", I could stone the stylist to death. The music - not meat not fish, but at least not boring. I hoped Maks has enough from his "dirty wildcats" variations and I would hear something more interesting (and no more copying western tastelessness which is a millenium back in time).

Just listened to VIA Gra's new song "My emancipation", and if Maks continues with this ...hmhm...(whatever), he will drive me in Meladze's arms! (Oh mein Gott!)

The biggest problem I have with this song is the title...Seriously, why on EARTH would a Russian group use the word "DIRTY" in a song. Every time they sing the chorus it sounds like "Mmm Mmm Mmm My Daddy's Kiss" to someone who speaks English natively.

Друзья!
Менеджмент группы SEREBRO сообщает, что дата релиза и презентации дебютного альбома группы переносится. Произошло это по-причине изменения трек-листа.

Friends!

The management of the group Serebro informs that the release date and presentation of the debut album of the group is postponed. It occurred because of a change of the track list.

Sure hope that's a demo....

Anyway, according to their official website, their newest song "Skazhi, ne molchi" will premier on Monday.
(Skazhi, ne molchi - means "Speak, Don't be Silent")

mp3: http://rapidshare.com/files/162532836/Skazhi_Ne_molchi.mp3.html

lyrics:
Это глубоко мне не разглядеть
Я к тебе тянусь, но боюсь задеть
Ты опять стоишь в круге пустоты
Сложно добежать - сломаны мосты
Раскаленный день не остудит дождь
Отпущу тебя - навсегда уйдешь,
Но..но пока ты ждешь...ждешь.
Я хочу бежать, но куда? зачем?
И помочь тебе не могу ничем
Воздух по глоткам - мне куда идти?
Мы с тобой стоим на краю пути
Холод по спине только не сейчас
Просто посмотри в бесконечность глаз
Так...ты спасаешь нас...нас

Скажи, не молчи
Что любишь меня
Скажи, не молчи
Что любишь меня
Глаза закрываю и будто бы легче
Опять вспоминаю последние встречи
Скажи не молчи
Что ты любишь меня


Тихо прошепчу главное тебе
Капли на словах позовут ко мне
И за все прости, если не смогла
Знал, всегда что я для тебя жила
Несколько минут, просто подожди
Что-то навсегда здесь освободи
Вновь...ты меня найди...и

Скажи, не молчи
Что любишь меня
Скажи, не молчи
Что любишь меня
Глаза закрываю и будто бы легче
Опять вспоминаю последние встречи
Скажи не молчи
Что ты любишь меня


thanks to the nice people at the official Serebro forum.

I've been listening to it a lot and i like it but i'm so irked by the male voices that come in before they sing "glaza zakryvayu..." ... was that really necessary? Not the best ballad from Serebro, but lets face it they created a song before that's gonna be really tough to top.

I've listened to it 2 times. That's a good rate for me because I don't listen to anything on repeat. So, about the song - a rather attractive verse which builds a sort of powerful expectation towards the refrain. When the refrain comes, the song just dies right here. That's a pity. Very little overall variation in melody and arrangement. It's an average bum-bum-pop-pop song. Would do fairly good in the Russian charts especially if supported by a decent girly video.

I don't want to disturb your nose wrinkling, but...is there ANY song currently in Russian charts that can at least halfway compete with this? I like it, it's beautiful, very pleasant to listen. I've heard some cruelties from Serebro already and that is a song far on the positive side.

If it will do well in the charts is just a question, how much Fadeev is ready to stuff into the greedy mouths of the chiefs of the broadcasting stations. Vivat to the New Age of Russian music business, which is currently on the best way to ruin itself!

I don't follow Russian charts that closely. Cheesy pop goes quite well down there if to speak generally.

If it will do well in the charts is just a question, how much Fadeev is ready to stuff into the greedy mouths of the chiefs of the broadcasting stations. Vivat to the New Age of Russian music business, which is currently on the best way to ruin itself!
He knows what to do in order to get the song into the charts so I'm not worried at all.

@ Greg! Yes, Alsu had quite a long wintersleep of over a year, but now she's back with something like 'Sandugachym gyzalem' or whatever...:dknow:

Serebro's new entry does really well and has already the most song downloads for almost two months on tophit(and this after three days of rotation!!!)

And of course I had a few more listens of "Skazh. ne molchi" and I like it even more than yesterday, and I really really wouldn't appreciate, if they had some power belting in the chorus. It's just right how it is, and - the lyrics have a really great sound to the music, it's simply perfect ( Maks' whimpering included, hehe) . :love:

Song#1 "PINK"
music: Maksim Fadeev, lyrics: Daniil Babichev

I see you teasing me
You wanna play you trick on me
Cuz you know you can make me freeze up
When you come to me
You got your style
Got that cheeky step provoking
Let me taste your flavor
Like I taste when I smoke it

If you make a move
They stop and stare
Cuz you know what you really dare
Cuz you got sumthin you can bare
And baby twist me if you can
Take a ride play with it
Wanna pull my trigger and shake with it
I'll show you who's up on this game
Come n check you know my name

Its like a sound sleep
Don't wanna wake up

Like a sound sleep
Don't wanna wake up

Its like a sound sleep
Don't wanna wake up

Like a sound sleep
Like a sound sleep

Do you feel my craving for
Your body's to defy
Your look is so slyly darling
Now I can't deny
So come to know me
Come a bit closer now
Flow together right here

Feel tingles down my spine
Feel tingles down my spine
Feel tingles down my spine
Tingles down my spine
My spine...

Its like a sound sleep
Don't wanna wake up

Don't wanna wake up

Finally Serebro kept their promise. The album is out!

The album OPIUMROZ (http://www.sendspace.com/file/8p01dm). Thanks, tatutik!
For people who need the filenames in latin alphabet - here (http://www.sendspace.com/file/w34481).

Not many new tracks, most of them are already known for a long time. The arrangements of the final versions are excellent (though I still can't hear this 'Whats your problem' without the fingers in my ears). Interesting that the soulful songs are in Russian language, and the harder 'dirty' ones are in English.

I miss some songs on the album like the 'Intro', the 'Love Song' , 'Red Light' or 'Prosti', which exist, partly were even announced to get on the album.

'Under Pressure' is a great track, would like to see a live performance of this song. The final version of 'Dirty Kiss' has a very well done arrangement. 'Sound Sleep' is of course THE masterpiece on this album. Funny that basically a spin-off of another song (Song No.1) will finally become the top track of the album! 'Pyl' angelov' is a nice ballad with an unnecessary hard beat. I guess Maks feared that it would be a bit boring for some people, but that's not a problem, I think. 'Never Be Good' is more or less a musical copy of 'Song No.1', well done, but nothing special. It would have been better to release a different track. 'Whats your problem' has a good arrangement too, but the vocals can't really satisfy me. Bad melody and harmony, and the screaming of "what's your problem" is awful. The final track 'My vzletaem' is a nice track too, with pleasant harmonies and a beautiful melody. Everything great ... until ... Maksi begins to cry about his testicular problems, after the song has already ended - completely unnecessary coda, and ruins the great impression of the album!

I sort of have opposite opinions about these songs. I think Pyl' angelov is an awesome track, i don't even notice this 'unecessary hard beat' --- however the string parts in "Under Pressure"'s chorus are so annoying to me, i think the song would be wholey better without it.

My favourite parts - maybe it's because I love to torture my neighbours myself with my fat distorted guitar solos, hehe. If I could pass something concerning "Under Pressure" then it's the epilogue.

ugh, the strings are just too abrasive and don't seem to really add any texture or depth. They seem like an attempt to do so, but instead distract me from any else in the song. to much high-end... not enough on the low spectrum.

By the way, thanks very very much Argos and tatutik for the post :D

I really enjoyed the whole album especially Sound Sleep, Dyshi, My vzletaem, and Pyl' Angelov, but why does Fadeev have to show up on nearly all the track and was that end of the album jibberish necessary?! Sound quality of the album is ace! I prefer the Russian songs, but the beat for Under Pressure is so sick :cool:.

'Love Song' exists since 2007. The lyrics author is Ol'ga Seryabkina herself. Quite a low quality record (especially the vocals) - here (http://www.sendspace.com/file/vptfga).
'Redlight' performed on Jan 31, 2009 in Minsk - here (http://www.sendspace.com/file/97387t), not really much better in quality, but at least you can hear clearly the voices.

...but why does Fadeev have to show up on nearly all the track and was that end of the album jibberish necessary?!
That's a male-dog-and-marking-trees-thing! :gigi:

For some reason "Love Song" didn't work but no biggie, thank you very much for the files anyway. "Red Light" sounds very similar to "Never Be Good", but kinda bleh at midtempo so maybe we're not missing out on much.

I wonder if they are saving the other songs for an english/international album, if that happens...I'm hoping it does, especially if they add "Intro"...I so want a clean version of that!

Yes yes :lol:, ego-maniac...had he been a gorgeous Russian female instead of...well as we all know and how to put it lightly, humpty-dumpty like?, he'd make himself absolute leader of the group...if he could stand the idea of attention veering away from him some of the time :rolleyes:

I do have to give him due praises for his musical genius though, all the great artist/music he's produced especially with the quality and contemporary sound of Serebro, major cool points in my book.

Thanks again, Argos...cheers!

I'm not a fan of the extremely overly drawn out LONG intro's to each song. I get bored before I get to the vocals.
The English songs are not good at all, the Russian tracks however, are beautiful. ''Пыль ангелов'' especially. Not a fan of how Song #1 and "Never Be Good" are nearly identical either.

Белая, белая пыль ангелов/ bielaya, bielaya pyl' angielov
бежали в небо вместе с тобой/biezhali v nebo vmeste s toboi
но твоя нежность мне прямо в кровь/no tvoya niezhnost' mnie pryamo v krov'
Белая, белая пыль ангелов/bielaya, bielaya pyl' angielov
упали в небо вместе с тобой/upali v niebo vmieste s toboi
я знаю это и есть любовь/ya znayo eto i yest' lyubov'
-White, white dust of an angel.
-We flew to the heavens together
-And your tenderness flows through my veins
-White, white dust of an angel
-We fell into the heavens together
-I know this and it's love

hastily done, i dunno if the lyrics are 100% correct just from what i was listening to. I did the whole song but i'm at work and doing a full translate now would be foolish. (plus i'm way off practise with translation!)

That's the part known as music :laugh: ...until disenchantment comes, when the singer begins his song destroying job! At least usually.

Quite a while ago I read some statistics about hit songs, and there was written that the average hit has an intro of 30 +/- 10 seconds. The songs here are mostly well within those limits, some even less, but you have a point here, the intros here are quite monotonous, a typical heritage from Fadeev's homeland in the wide south russian steppe. Some like it, some don't. Well, me likes. :love:

myself as well, the comment about long intro's has long been a pet peeve of mine. "ugh, when does this song start?" ... oh, you know when the music starts (my famous example is "In the Meantime" by Spacehog)

Hey thegurgi, I found the lyrics somewhere online (I lost track of the site) and then ran it through a translator...don't know if it's correct but it might help.

Есть тонкая линия счастья
мне кажется я в её власти
и долгая линия жизни
стучит на запястье всё выше
тонула в безумном белом
без крыльев до солнца летела
по венам с небес стекала
но душу мою поймала
солнечная пыль...

Белая, белая пыль ангелов
бежали в небо вместе с тобой
но твоя нежность мне прямо в кровь
Белая, белая пыль ангелов
упали в небо вместе с тобой
я знаю это и есть любовь...

Есть тонкая линия света
и ангелы знают об этом
но белая линия рая
доводит до точки, до края
разбитые, мокрые звёзды
в карманах случайные слёзы
пусть тихие снежные хлопья
пронзают дыханье, как копья
и на крыльях пыль...


There is a thin line of Happiness
I think I am in her power
and a long line of life
knocking on the wrist all the above
Flood in the insane white
without wings flew up to the sun
on veins drain from the sky
but my soul caught
solar dust ...

White, white dust of angels
fled to the sky with you
but your tenderness to me directly in the blood
White, white dust of angels
fell into the sky with you
I know this is love ...

There is a thin line of light
and the angels know about it
but the white line paradise
bring to a point, to the edge
broken, wet stars
in random pockets of tears
Let the silent snow-flakes
pierce breath like spears
and on the wings of dust ...

some news... Marina has left the group and was replaced by Anastasiya - Nastya - Karpova. They've shot a new video for a song written by Olga called "Like Mary Warner" that wasn't included on the album, obviously.

this line up change begs the question, is serebro Fadeev's version of Via Gra?

Sometimes news can't really surprise. A member of a girlgroup can earn money only when performing on stage, and exactly that happened very rarely with Serebro. They were the top chart performers of the last two years but they can't manage a big concert tour nor at least some big concert in Moscow or Piter. The girls are waiting and waiting, first for the album release which was delayed for more than a year, now they are waiting to harvest the fruits of their hard work on tour, but the management is unable to get anything right which is beyond the artistical work (and even that is far from flawless).

Marina as the most frustrated member is logically the first one to leave. She is the number three in the line-up, just because she doesn't come from the producer's home-town like Lena, who is the undisputed leader just for this one reason, and she is not so good in English as Ol'ya, who has the luck that she is the only one fluent in English (including the whole management and the other employees of Fadeev's center) in a group which has ambitions for the international market and can therefore help writing the English lyrics.

Another Fadeev-project going down because of bad management, wrong concept and lack of orientation. But...he has already another new project to ruin - Kit-I ... :rolleyes:

By the way a pic of Nastya Karpova (http://www.serebro.su/sections/news/data/216/nastya.jpg).

In case anyone was looking for these, I noticed they aren't up yet :)

Try this one?

I'm feeling broken inside,
I want to ease the pain,
I promise 'never again', and again, and again.

I feel I'm losing my ground,
And now, I've got to move on,
I know, I've got to be strong, to be strong, to be strong.

It gets white without you...
So, it's either love or hate you.

I'll never be good,
I, I'll never be slow,
Never misunderstood,
You bet, I'll never be good.

I'll never be good,

I'm not a feeling,

I'm getting stronger,
You bet, I'll never be good.

You better take it...

I want to leave you behind,
I want to ease the pain,
I promise 'never again', and again, and again.

Well, you've been dragging me down,
And now this debt is around,
I know, I've got to be strong, to be strong, to be strong.

It gets white without you...
So, it's either love or hate you.

I'll never be good,
I, I'll never be slow,
Never misunderstood,

On 24 June 2009 Serebro announced they had finished work on their new music video for their forth single "Like Mary Warner" which will be released in English and Russian ("Сладко" ; Russian: Sweet). This single is not featured on the band's debut album and will be the first song to feature the work of new Serebro member Anastasia Karpova.

What is meaning Like Mary Warner? lol

Marina was my favourite! I think. I never payed that much attention to Serebro. She stood out to me (so she's the only blond in the group, but still) and I liked her voice; or at least the few seconds we'd hear of it anyway. But I'm not that shocked. Most groups with more than 2 members always seem to change line ups. @_@

I totally dreamed of an Engrish version of Dyshi, too. Guess that won't happen. *tear tear*

On this page you can listen to three versions of a new track "Sladko/Sweet" or "Like Mary Warner" ... i'm not sure what i think of it first but i'm not disappointed. Trying to track down the full tracks at work is difficult.

Apart from that I've not accustomed myself to the voice of this new hoe, eh singer, the song doesn't impress me much, somewhere between "ok, it's not unbearable" to "do you have a new prog which writes the songs for you?". I don't know, but somehow it reminds me Madonna's rubbish of her late years, nothing that gives you the slightest hint of originality.

thegurgi
24-08-2009, 18:36
The song definitely has a commercial appeal to it. I think it has potential to be a hit but it's definitely not to the caliber of Dyshi or even Opium. Of course, i prefer the russian version and will probably saturate my ears with the song most of today

The saxophone irks me... it's sort of like "here's some time we need to fill near the middle eight and bridge... oh, i know! how about some random saxophone that has no relationship what so ever to the rest of the song." is this a BIS song?

I agree though, fanoff, i'm sure a Danil Babichev remix of this song will be as good as his others.

here's a stab at the lyrics


Like Mary Warner,

Hey Boy I see that you're feeling down,
you've kind of taking your time
You're smiling back at me
I am on fire

And i ain't gonna wait long
I feel so hot let's just turn it on
I got you watching me on the floor
What are you running from?

Like Mary Warner
Boy my love is so right
I'll make you wanna
Try this love tonight, ah ah

I like the feeling that gets me fast
what kind of love gonna make me mad
you've got to know how to do that
give it to me yes, oh oh

and i ain't gonna wait long
i'll let you see how i freak on
your body tells me you want more
so what are you running from

In Russia singles don't promote an album, but the artist. You can't make money with an album that costs just 5 dollars. They are out of the charts for a month now (by the way they almost reached the magical 500.000 airplays mark with Skazhi!!!), they need some random new single, and this one has to be a hit with the hot video (black latex catsuits, bondage etc. - you know, the ingredients of great art work :laugh: ), which we all are eager to watch! :heh:
