Young hero – and legend.
No German before him looks back at such a career at the age of 27.
Bill Kaulitz, a pop nomad, roaming between Berlin and Los Angeles.
A conversation about his life and the search for meaning

Patience is the first word that comes to mind when I see Bill Kaulitz sitting in the studio. It is just being painted. Lace knees stuck out of the jeans with holes out. He is rolled up, you see naked fetters. At his feet is a brown and white piebald bulldog: “This is Pumba. He did not want to get up today.” Bill‘s voice is warm and open.

“Have you had him long?” I ask and sit down in front of the hair equipment. I know that Pumba is in the hit list of the sweetest celebrity pets. On Instagram there is a whole gallery with pictures of the two cuddling. And he also got his own video for his first birthday.

Three years. I got it at eight weeks. He is so sweet & kind, so full of love. Sometimes he sits there and looks deeply into my eyes, which is like a ‘Hug’. ”

Bill is talking about tattoos with the make-up artist. That they fade after a few years, especially the black. She also has one thing on hand. A chain with cross dangling above it. He shows her his hands and his forearm: Freedom stands there. With flourishes. A reference to his mother. When she was pregnant with the twins, the wall was still standing. Bill closes his eyes, leans back. The make-up artist dabs his face with a paste from Bobbi Brown. “Do you need anything more?” She asks.
Bill looks up, “No, everything else fits.” He gets up, bends closer to the mirror, is now tugging at his hair. Every single strand is wise.

Tokio Hotel: Dream Machine

Everything starts with a thought and suddenly you are dancing through your own wonderland full of fruits and sweets! Friendship, respect, an almost unshakable self-awareness in one’s self, the vision of being, the curiosity of life, an insatiable thirst for development, to create something together, to achieve and to experience …

If you look at Tokio Hotel, it is all these qualities that form the basis and the impetus of an incomparable career. The career of a German band, which simply does not fit into any drawer. And so also the one or the other tried hard, Bill and Tom Kaulitz, Georg Listing and Gustav Schäfer always remained the architects of their world. After more than a decade in the international music business, 70 platinum, 160 gold awards, more than 110 international and national prizes, and over 7 million sold phonograms, Tokio Hotel will release their new art project and fifth studio album “Dream Machine” on March 3, The proof that they are always able to reinvent themselves.

“Dream Machine” opens the door to the new sound world of Tokio Hotel. A world with high mountains, deep valleys, wild rivers, dense forests and endless expanses. A world that pulsates, glows in neon colors and club lights – light, playful, spherical and enthralling. Built on a sound foundation, a symbiosis of alternative indie pop, analogous Retro-synths, modern beats and strong Baselines, without rules. “This is the album that we always wanted to make – just us four, without anyone chatting us. We started with the last record. Since we have tried and fueled self-consciousness. At “Dream Machine” we knew right from the beginning that we were doing it alone. We did not need any producer in between or any songwriters. We did not feel like we needed this back-up. We felt able to have full control, creativity, the songs and what we wanted to make and say – in sound, in production, and also with our lyrics. That is why it is not only our dream album, because no one is talking to us anymore, but also because, as a band, we were finally able to realize ourselves honestly musically, “explains Bill.


From the teenage swarm to fashion boy: Bill Kaulitz was a guest at the Maybelline Show on Monday evening in Berlin

What does Bill Kaulitz actually do at Fashion Week Berlin?

As if he had guessed that the Red Carpet at the Maybelline show in Berlin would not be red but pink, Bill Kaulitz (27) appeared in a pink coat. And because Fashion Week it is, the “Tokio Hotel” singer laid still extra tons of pearls à la Coco Chanel († 87) around his dainty neck. Pretty fashionable – but also stylish? makes the check and explains why Bill Kaulitz is now one of the most important Fashion Week guests.

Time and again Radio silence was around the success band Tokio Hotel. Over twelve years ago, singer Bill Kaulitz and his boys with “Through the Monsum” conquered the hearts of countless teenagers around the world. But now there is a fulminant comeback – at least for the ex-frontman Bill. The girl swarm from Magdeburg was one of the prominent guests of the “Maybelline Xhibition” show at the Berlin Fashion Week.

Bill, the new fashion superstar?

Just a few seconds after his arrival, it was clear: Bill is THE superstar of the show. The flash of lightning lasted longer than with all the other star guests (including Cathy Hummels, Franziska Knuppe and Ann-Kathrin Brömmel) as well as the open mouths of the bloggers in the front row showed quite clearly: Here are the amorous teenagers from then and their skies Emo-boy again.

And his short Fashion Week game did not stop there: on the evening of the evening, Tokio-Bill was spotted at the Malaik Raiss show in Front Row. Later that evening Kaulitz took part in an exclusive Fashion Week dinner at the Nobelrestaurant Borchardt.

The wonderful transformation of Bill Kaulitz

How is it that Bill is now a frequent guest of Fashion Week Berlin? Certainly, it’s on the one hand his style transformation. Instead of an Emo-Boy with black Struwelpeterhaaren, the singer has been enthusiastic about fashionable looks since his move to Los Angeles in 2009: whether with “Maybelline” in Madonna imitation look with exhilarated hair, lots of pearl jewellery and a septum ring in the nose or in minimalism -Military-style as with Malaika Raiss – Bill always carries the latest trends from the catwalk. Even his size-zero figure is not a drawback, so he fits perfectly into the tight-cut fumble – even in those of Womenswear designers!

And one factor makes him so desirable for the Front Row: Bill is very close to “Lala Berlin” founder Leyla Piedayesh (46) – and Leyla is one of the most fashionable designers in the German fashion industry. Even with design legend Wolfgang Joop (72), Bill connects a close friendship. Certainly not so uncomfortable, which concerns a career in the fashion sector. So we would not be surprised if we see Bill even soon at the International Fashion Weeks …

And who wonders what Bill Kaulitz actually looked like twelve years ago: Here is a small summary of his wild fashion years:

So it all started. In 2005, Bill Kaulitz and Tokio Hotel were honored with “Comet 2005” by “Viva” as the “best newcomer”
