Fake lesbian duo tATu to perform at Sochi opener


SOCHI, Russia (AP) — The Russian pop duo tATu will perform at the opening ceremony of the Sochi Olympics, with a song about two schoolgirls in love.

It's a curious choice for Friday's event, designed to showcase Russia to the world just as many activists and world leaders are angry over a Russian law against gay rights "propaganda."

The event's producer said tATu's "Not Gonna Get Us" was chosen because it's one of the only Russian pop songs that international viewers might recognize.

Konstantin Ernst also argued that the choice was about motivating athletes with an upbeat dance song that challenges competitors by saying "you're not going to get us."

While the singers put on a lesbian act, they have not championed gay rights and it is largely seen as an attention-getting gimmick.
