Bill & Tom Kaulitz @ Deutschland Sucht Den Superstar 2013 – Info Update #10
Hallo Leute, here are a few German press reports + a new tv report from RTL PUNKT 6 of this morning:
Voice-over: [They’re] no longer boys, but men. Tom and Bill Kaulitz are back in their home country. Thanks to DSDS. Tom: Sometime it’s actually also super to come to Germany again and to be doing something here. Erm, and… erm… Well yes, therefore… Bill: And above all we’ve also always wanted to, well, look at young talents and watch new artists and so on. Actually [we] have always fancied doing this. Voice-over: After all, it’s about time that the two of them show their faces again because things have been rather quiet around the Tokio Hotel brothers for the past two years. The band suddenly withdrew at the peak of their success in 2010. No more music, no more interviews. The four guys from Magdeburg have had enough. Tom: After all, we somehow were on tour and on the road non-stop for five years and erm… Some day we reached the point when we said “Right, now we just have to […] something… we just want to have a break, [and] do something different.” And above all to have some kind of an at-home feeling for once. To have a house where you get home to and say “Here is where we’re living now.” Voice-over: „Here“: to the identical twins Bill and Tom that was and is the US metropolis Los Angeles. For a good reason. Tom: Mainly LA because we, erm, just wanted to produce and because I think, we were most likely to find some peace quicker there. Meaning, that was a bit difficult in Europe. Bill: Yes. Many people are always like this and then think “Ah, they’re only 23. How can they somehow, erm, withdraw themselves for two years?” Erm… Tom: However, we’ve started out aged 15 after all. Bill: However, we’ve started out aged 15 after all. Voice-over: However, the break came at a cost. Time and again it’s reported that Tokio Hotel broke up a long time ago. Even now the rumours don’t want to die down but “All of that is rubbish.” the brothers say. Tom: Nope, nope, it’s only the two of us on the judging panel but we’ve got… Nope, nope, Georg and Gustav are also around. They, they continued living in Germany but they’re around again. They come over to LA, [and] we’re in Germany from time to time. Voice-over: So, creative break. As if. Work on the next Tokio Hotel album has already started. Bill: Lately we’ve also just spent loads of time in the studio and have also been working. It’s not as if we’d only been relaxing all day long somehow but of course [we’ve] also [done] that. Meaning, we’ve also deliberately been taking a bit of a break and relaxed. Voice-over: However, the relaxation time is over now. Tom and Bill really want being members of the DSDS judging panel give it their all. Currently the castings are happening. A real challenge for the twins. Bill: It‘s definitely rather exhausting. Meaning, we really also see loads of people. However, of course it’s also totally fun. Voice-over: By the way, the two of them also have fun with the rest of the judging panel. So it really looks like Bill and Tom will actually be staying at home in Germany for now.
promiflash.de: “At 15, got the first tattoo. Bill Kaulitz designed even his tattoos!”
Bill Kaulitz (23) surprised us with exceptional looks at the very beginning of his career as lead singer of the band Tokio Hotel. But he wasn’t fan only of eccentric clothes or cool hairstyles, he was also a fan for permanent body art, and he was interested in that as teenager.
The star, who got his first Jury-job with his twin brother Tom in Germany, the superstar said when he started tattooing in an interview with the Bild, and even when he got pierced. At the age of 13 he got his first piercing. A few years later came the first tattoo. Meanwhile Bill even designed his motives himself, and he admits: “I had my first piercing at 13, my first tattoo at 15. I’ve always loved tattoos, in recent years, I could let me stand out, there was no time. Now I design it with a tattoo artist in L.A. “
During photo shoot for DSDS, his new tattoo especially stood out: Bills chest adorns a motif that has similarities with the “Eye of Providence”. And who knows, maybe he’ll surprise us this time and shows us even further with new body art in DSDS
promiflash.de: “Tom Kaulitz: The DSDS candidates annoy him”
In January 2013 DSDS returns on German TV, the castings shows are already taking place now. Also, the Tokio Hotel twins had their first day as jurors. But they came all the way from Los Angeles back to their old home.
DSDS fans are already excited about how the assessment strategy of Bill and Tom (both 23) probably looks. After their first day as jurors, Twins gave the first insight into their evaluation structure. “Those who just want to be famous, really annoy me. Being famous is just a side effect, if someone is really good at something. If you can’t do anything, you should not even be famous.” said Tom clearly for BILD.
Even Tom probably always seems to go a bit stronger with candidate then his brother Bill. Claimed to have seen a few talents that day, but Tom was also like, “But without killer. At least not today.”

Voice-over: They’ve been gone for two years. [They] virtually vanished into thin air. Only little was heard about Bill and Tom from their voluntary exile in LA. Bill: For the past two years we‘ve actually withdrawn ourselves for a bit. Deliberately. After all we consistently didn’t give any interviews and no, erm… didn’t do anything. We somehow retreated privately but also musically to do new stuff. Voice-over: Bill and Tom changed quite a bit. After all they used to look like this. The teens became young men. Today Bill wears his hair styled up, [and] for the next interview [he wears] big glasses and a cap. Bill: I just never wear, like, a certain styling and I also don’t create it. Meaning, it actually happens entirely automatically and naturally with me. Voice-over: For a long time one wondered “What became of the brothers?” The band suddenly withdrew at the peak of their success in 2010. The four guys from Magdeburg had enough of the celebrity hype. Bill: Many people are always like this and then think “Ah, they’re only 23. How can they somehow, erm, withdraw themselves for two years?” Erm… Tom: However, after all we’ve started out aged 15. Bill: However, after all we’ve started out aged 15 and two years are actually… That just goes by so quickly. Voice-over: During their break rumours about anorexia in Bill kept appearing. Even accusations of drugs and alcohol [use]. Time and again it’s reported that Tokio Hotel broke up a long time ago but “All of that is rubbish.” the brothers say. Tom: Nope, there’s not just only the two of us left! Nope, Nope. No. Nope, nope, nope, nope. Nope, nope, it’s only the two of us on the judging panel but we’ve got… Nope, nope, Georg and Gustav are also around. They, they continued living in Germany but they’re around again. They come over to LA, [and] we’re in Germany from time to time. Yes, and we’re [working on] producing the next record. Voice-over: Allegedly the twins retreated to this villa in LA. Rather posh but not what it’s about first and foremost. Tom: We just wanted to have a break, [and] do something different.” And above all to have some kind of an at-home feeling for once. To have a house where you get home to and say “Here is where we’re living now.” because one just never had that before. We’ve always been on the road. Voice-over: They came back to their home country for DSDS. It’s a fresh start of sorts for Bill and Tom. Tom: Bottom line is that for me the urge to also just nurture young people musically became so strong that I said I’d do it for free. Bill got sh*tloads of money and erm, that’s the truth.*Bill laughing* Voice-over: [He] wasn’t all that serious but they’re happy now to be a part of the DSDS family. They gladly ended their hiatus for that.
