T.A.T.U. exploded onto the international pop world in 2002, featuring the female Russian teen duo making out on stage and professing lesbian love for one another at every opportunity. Despite the fact that a year later the pair admitted they were not in fact a gay couple, that stunt remains probably the greatest marketing ploy of all time. Performing live in their underwear and making a point to tongue-kiss each other onstage, T.A.T.U. also found time to release not one, but two albums, the first of which 200KM/H In the Wrong Lane, was an international bestseller on the strength of the hit "All The Things She Said."
