pop star Severina (AKA: Severina Vuckovic) was born on April 21, 1972, in Split, Yugoslavia. She started her career off by singing folk music and performing in local theater groups. Her voice won her awards at many festivals, and with that bit of momentum, she catapulted her career into the recording industry. Severina seems like the girl next door with a bit of a wild streak that her fans know and love. This hottie entered the Dora festival in 2006 with her song Moja stikla
and came out victorious. She also finished 13th in the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest and represented her home country with pride; however, there was a bit of controversy surrounding her entry. Some critics and journalists believed that her song was slightly plagiarized, but musicologists did not agree. As with so many beautiful celebrities, there is always someone waiting to rain on the famous people parade. After a sex tape leak by a Croatian tabloid in 2004, Severina felt the embarrassment that Paris Hilton
and Mindy McCready
also suffered. As a practicing Roman Catholic, the fact that Severina had a sex tape
with a married man made her seem like a hypocrite. Severina sued the website that originally leaked the tape, as she believed that the amateur porno was her intellectual property, but the lawsuit was dismissed later in the year. The sexy Slavic has recorded a dozen albums and has been involved in an on-again, off-again relationship with Serbian businessman Milan Popovic. The famous couple have a son together and, while they may never reconcile, they try to get along for the good of their child.
