TATU star LENA KATINA will quit the controversial pop band this Spring (04) to go solo - but she hasn't told bandmate Yulia Volkova yet.

Katina, 20 - who admits the pair staged their infamous lesbian antics - is now bored of the ALL THE THINGS SHE SAID group, who have dipped out of the headlines recently after originally hitting the music scene in a blaze of publicity in 2002.

She explains, "We are very tired of each other and it's not fun playing lesbians anymore.

"I believe it will be a shock to my friends and family and to Yulia.

"I can't wait to get out of the schoolgirl outfit, jeans and T-shirt that were Tatu's trademark."
