Tokio Hotel speak out against racism in Germany,
Bill’s solo project officially announced
Although TH have been mostly quiet working on album #5, they recently broke their silence to tweet about the German right-wing/nationalist party Alternative für Deutschland (Alternative for Germany). For those not familiar, here’s a quick look at AfD’s policies. If my understanding of German politics is correct, Germany just had state elections and AdF has been gaining seats by leaning on anti-immigrant hate speech. Their party leader actually suggested shooting immigrants at the border. TH tend to stay in their corner when it comes to politics but I’m glad they spoke out about this.
Meanwhile, God of pop Bill Kaulitz has launched billyofficial.net where you can pr=eorder the “first multimedia release” of his solo project: a photobook and a vinyl single for his “art piece” Love Don’t Break Me, which will include a short film. You can also get a glimpse of his solo alter ego, Billy, and enjoy such quotes as “If death is imminent, it is better to be killed by a lover.”
The song/video is still not out however, so if you want to get the full high-brow pop experience, you’ll have to wait a bit. Some more. The book comes out on April 29th so maybe we’ll actually hear the song by then.
Also…Gustav is having a kid:
