Ceca (is she the future of music?)

Political revolutions and popstars. First turbofolk, next the world. Ceca's been a side obsession for me for a while now.

From YouTube you can see she's safe as milk:

From Wiki you can see that she's probably the most revolutionary pop star in the world:

Controversies and criticism

In 1995 Ceca married Željko Ražnatović Arkan, leader of the paramilitary forces Arkan's Tigers and one of the most influential criminals in Belgrade in the 90's. His marriage to Ceca was broadcasted on TV, made headlines in newspapers, and was seen in estrada-circles as a "Serbian fairytale." Arkan was assassinated on January 15, 2000 in Belgrade, and Ceca was left alone with their two children. Despite having been shot in the head, he remained alive for a little, but died in her arms in the back of the car that was taking them to the ER. After 18 months of mourning, she made her first public appearance in a TV interview. " One part of me died that day...I will always love him, and only him, I'm sure of that...," she said. Ceca never allows anyone to talk badly about Arkan in her presence. To this day, she is officially single and has stated that she has been abstinent for the last seven years.

Ceca was arrested in March 2003, and detained for four months accused of helping the Zemun clan to assassinate Serbia's prime minister Zoran Đinđić and for illegal weapon possession. She was later cleared of all charges.
At the moment, she is being prosecuted for illegal financial transactions in her football club FK Obilic.
She was accused by Dejan Milenković Bagzi on trial for assassination of Zoran Đinđić that she was implicated in a plan to kidnap Željko Mitrović (owner of RTV Pink) . As a result Ceca was banned from TV Pink [2]. It has been recently confirmed that Ceca will not be banned from RTV Pink anymore.[3]

Britney Spears is going to have to engage in some kind of politically motivated assassination attempt if she wants to keep up with this girl.
