These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Anvilicious: The band were anything but subtle about the anti-abortion message in White Robes.
Base Breaker: Dangerous And Moving/Lyudi Invalidy lost many fans since the musical style (and message) was very different and the girls were no longer supposedly lesbians. Many fans who could find one or two songs on that/those albums to appreciate were further displeased with Waste Management/Happy Smiles.
Fan Dumb: When Yulia and Lena admitted they were not lesbians, many fans got into heated debates about whether or not this was true. One side was constantly looking for lesbian subtext in their interactions and activities. Others insist that they are HAPPY that t.A.T.u. is openly straight because they should be who they are. Usually these fans have a certain bitterness that suggests blatant lies.
Les Yay: Even after Lena and Yulia publicly admitted to not being genuine lesbians, they continued to kiss, hold hands, and otherwise behave affectionately during interviews and on stage.
Nightmare Fuel: Yulia building a bomb in the 30 Minutes/Pol chasa video after getting jealous about Lena being with a man, and subsequently blows up a children's merry-go-round. With Lena and the man on it at the time.
The Beliy Plaschik/White Robe video where Lena calls on a firing squad to shoot a pregnant Yulia, who was being held in a Detention Centre at the time (and is hinted to actually be innocent.) At the very end, a phone starts ringing before it fades to black, implying it was a call to confirm Yulia's innocence, happening a moment too late. Some fans speculate this video to be a continuation of All About Us. The speculation is justified in an interview wherein Lena said that Waste Management shows the grim results of the problems brought up in Dangerous and Moving.
It's worth mentioning that as well as being the leader of a firing squad, Lena plays a prostitute and is probably sentencing someone to death when she is the one that's truly in the wrong.
In the "Nas Ne Dagonyat/Not Gonna Get Us" video, Yulia and Lena steal a large truck, which is slightly burning on the left side,) and run over a construction worker, played by their ex-producer Ivan Shapovalov. Foreshadowing anybody?
They also drive over themselves.
Of course in the uncensored version of the "All About Us" video, where Yulia shoots a man in the head after he throws her through a glass table and attempts to strangle her, on top of attempted rape.
He also happened to have bullets and a gun in his apartment. Make of that what you will.
In the "Snegopady/Snowfalls" video, Yulia and Lena drive on motorbikes through a town and various motorways at dangerous speeds. Attracting the attention of the police, they drive to escape from them. At the end of the video however they turn their bikes towards each other and drive straight into one another committing dual suicide.
In the Lyudi Invalidi/Dangerous and Moving video, Yulia and Lena lead a crowd of mindless people that are depicted to have no individuality and quite literally, follow the crowd, are led off of a great height of some sort, falling to their deaths.
In both the "Ne Ver' Ne Boisya", and the unreleased Clowns video, Yulia is briefly shown to be in handcuffs of some sort in a barbed-wire guarded imprisonment.
Also, a teddy bear is shown to be on fire. Who doesn't find that creepy?
