I’ve spent a lot of time with the boys so the next few Monday’s will be dedicated to female singers. The first is Marija Serifovic who won the 2007 Eurovision song contest. She has a rich voice which is full of passion and I love that she sings in her native language. I also love that she is not a magazine beauty. Marija won because she is talented not because she looks like a Barbie doll. One of the things I like about foreign media is I’m more likely to find people who look like regular people- not all of them and not every time- but when I do find talented people being celebrated no matter what their dress size, or definition on their six pack it makes me happy.
