Julia was out clubbing the night she “cancelled” her return to Japan. She was dancing to her own music.

What did “FRIDAY” report 10, 20, and 30 years ago? In “Playback Friday,” we take a look back at the topics that were popular at the time. This time, we will report on “t.A.T.u.’s Julia’s “secret night out” rampage” from the November 21, 2003 issue, which was published 20 years ago.

In 2002, “All the Things She Said” became a big hit in the U.S. and Europe, and their debut album “t.A.T.u.” debuted at No. 1 on the Oricon chart in Japan. However, their first visit to Japan was not enough. However, in June 2003, their first visit to Japan, they were heavily criticized for their selfish behavior, such as canceling “Music Station” (TV Asahi) and live events. And when she visited Japan to promote her December concert at the Tokyo Dome, her uninhibited behavior was no different.

Playback! Putting her arms around a man’s neck…. Julia continued to play until morning that day.

Julia had to cancel her return on October 29 because she “overslept in the morning. Her partner, Lena, returned to Japan as planned,

She (Julia) had something to do. I don’t miss her.

I don’t miss her. It was no wonder that she had been enjoying herself at clubs during the two days she had been completely free due to the postponement of her return to Japan. On the last night of her stay in Japan, a reporter of this magazine took Lena’s place (?). The reporter of this magazine closely followed Julia’s private life in place of Rena. What was that extreme night?

She was a normal girl, sipping wine in the VIP room and chatting with Russian women and staff members. When the reporter asked her to take a picture, she leaned in close and took a picture with him.

After about three hours, she must have gotten drunk, because she suddenly started dancing with a male staff member, her hips wriggling. They were in close contact with each other in the middle of the dance floor and put their arms around the other’s neck. Then they looked at each other and kissed each other over and over again. When the reporter blushed, Julia said, “I don’t know if [kissing] is how I feel or how I feel.

When the reporter blushed, Julia said, “[Kissing] is just an expression of my feelings and affection. I only kiss because I want to.

Julia continued to play until 9:00 a.m. that day, and then flew back to Japan from her hotel in the afternoon. She was in a good mood from start to finish, saying, ” I love Tokyo.

However, the negative image of “t.A.T.u.” created in the minds of the Japanese public by the “M-station cancellation incident” and other incidents was more deeply rooted than the girls had realized. At a concert at the Tokyo Dome in December of the same year, not even half of the seats were filled. The “t.A.T.u.” boom in Japan was completely over.

In later years, the duo confessed that the “M-station incident” had been ordered by the producer. The lesbian-suggesting music videos that became synonymous with “t.A.T.u.” and their controversial behavior, such as announcing their candidacy for the presidential election, were all part of the producers’ strategy. Perhaps, the expression on the face of an ordinary woman that we caught a glimpse of during our close interview may have been Julia’s true face.

t.A.T.u.” broke up in 2002. Julia and Lena, who are now in their 40s, seem to be continuing their music activities as solo artists.

For some reason, this reporter kissed Julia. She said, “It was softer than I thought it would be. She even gave him a pair of sunglasses as a souvenir.
