Biography and Career:
Bill Kaulitz was born on September 1, 1989 in Leipzig, Germany ten minutes after his identical twin brother Tom. His parents, Simone and Ji¶rg Kaulitz, divorced when he was seven and eventually his mother began dating again. After being in a relationship with him for 12 years, Simone married Gordon Tri¼mper, a guitarist from the German rock band Fatun, on August 1, 2009.
Bill showed an early interest in singing, as did Tom in playing guitar. Tri¼mper noticed the twins' musical inclinations, and helped the twins to start their own band. According to Bill in several interviews, he and Tom started writing music at the age of seven.
At the age of ten the brothers began performing live in Magdeburg, near their hometown of Loitsche, under the pseudonym Black Question Mark. The year Bill and Tom turned twelve, everything changed. In the audience at one of their shows were Georg Listing (14) and Gustav Schi¤fer (13). Listing and Schi¤fer were friends and after the show, having liked what they heard and saw, made an offer to join. The band was promptly re-named "Devilish" due to an article published at the time that referred to the "devilishly great" sound.
In 2003 Devilish decided a name change was appropriate. They eventually settled on Tokio Hotel; "Tokio" being the German spelling of the city Tokyo, Japan - a city that the band dreamed of visiting - and "Hotel" as their constant touring led to frequent stays in hotels throughout Germany.
Why we like Bill Kaulitz?
Bill Kaulitz is a International singing sensation, sex symbol to legions of girls. He is very open-minded, friendly, egoistical, extremely talkative, ambitious, sensitive and romantic. He describes himself as an "insider", because he'd rather spend time slouching inside the house than go outside and get some fresh air. He's not a fan of exploring nature. He says he can be vain sometimes. He is the creative part of the band and writes most of the lyrics.
Why is Bill Kaulitz famous?
Bill Kaulitz is famous for his androgynous appearance. German site dw-world.com says that his look, young age and edgy hairstyle has helped him obtain icon status among many teenage girls. Kaulitz designs many of his own stage costumes, and despite poor drawing skills, the designs are constructed by his tailor. The singer apparently collects suspenders, and is also "totally crazy about jackets". Kaulitz reports he has hundreds of jackets in his closet - though he has said that none of his jackets are real leather as he is opposed to using animal pelts/feathers for clothing.
