Yulia Volkova, one half of faux lesbian pop duo t.A.T.u (pictured left) has revealed that her support for gay men is not all about love and let love.
In an interview on Russian TV, which was translated by YouTube video description, she answered that she would condemn her own son if her was gay "because I believe that a real man must be a real man."
"God created man for procreation, it is the nature. The man for me is the support, the strength of... I won't accept a gay son."
"I think for men it's a bad freedom," she said. "In our time, there is a very large number of frivolous girls (and a man can be with a large number of these girls). This is freedom for men.
"And a man has no right to be a fag. Two girls together - not the same thing as the two men together. It seems to me that lesbians look aesthetically much nicer than two men holding their hands or kissing."
The singer didn't stop there with her views "But I want to say that I'm not against gays, I just want my son to be a real man, not a fag."
This is a far cry from a decade ago when the band burst onto the music scene, causing controversy by kissing in their videos and live shows.

The video is cropped and Youtube carries on with the translated text:
"I have many gay friends. I believe that being gay is all still better than murderers, thieves or drug addicts. If you choose out of all this, being gay is better than the rest." She finishes with "I do not blame anyone."
