MUSIC STARS TEGAN AND SARA OPEN UP ABOUT BEING TWINS, THEIR RELATIONSHIP AND THEIR SEXUALITY

When one feels pain, the other does. They can read each other’s minds. They do everything together. These are just some of the misconceptions about identical twins that Tegan and Sara Quin want to change.

Tegan and Sara's latest album, “Hey, I’m Just Like You,” came from songs they wrote in high school. They decided to re-recorded them using an all-female crew. (W5)

When one feels pain, the other does. They can read each other’s minds. They do everything together. These are just some of the misconceptions about identical twins that Tegan and Sara Quin want to change.

“It was the opposite of that,” Tegan told W5’s Avery Haines.

“I remember the violence. I remember beating each other up,” Sara added.

Despite the animosity they had towards each other growing up in Calgary, Alta., they embarked on a music career together in 1998 at the age of 18. To date, they have sold over a million albums, have four gold records, won three Juno awards, been nominated for a Grammy and sung at the Oscars.

But the Canadian pop stars didn’t only sing on their latest North American tour; they also read stories from their new book, “High School.” Stories about how keeping the fact that they were gay from each other caused them to lash out in their teens.
