Marija Serifovic available on iTunes! I didn't know if any of you had noticed this, but there is actually an album available for her on iTunes Plus which includes many of her more popular songs as well as a few I'd never heard. I was just excited to see it, so I thought I'd mention it here because out of all places I figured you guys would appreciate it the most. :)
Marija to Stockholm Pride in august! It is now official that Marija will perform at Stockholm Pride the 2nd of august! Actually it's been official for some time but me and fickleboon have enjoyed some quality time away from the computers. Here is what it says on the official stockholm pride page: Serbiens vinnare Marija Serifovic klar för Pride
– Jag är otroligt stolt över att kunna presentera årets Eurovisionvinnare, Marija Serifovic, säger Edward af Sillén.
Stockholm Pride presenterar Marija Serifovic som en av artisterna under torsdagens schaglerkväll. Som förra året är kvällens regissör Edward af Sillén:
-Jag är otroligt stolt över att kunna presentera årets Eurovisionvinnare, Marija Serifovic. Hennes framförande i Helsingfors var magiskt och det känns underbart att hon kommer till vår schlagershow med Molitva.
Translation: Serbias winner Marija Serifovic ready for Pride Stockholm Pride presents Marija as one of the artists staring in the Eurovision Night on thursday. Edward af Sillén is the director of the show like last year. - I am incredibly proud to present this years Eurovision winner, Marija Serifovic, says Edward af Sillen. Her performance in Helsinki was magical and it feels wonderful that she is coming to our show with Molitva.
Marija Serifovic has been forced to cancel her trip to Norway where she was supposed to be performing tomorrow night at the Eurovision Memory Lane concert in Oslo in front of an estimated 5,000 crowd tomorrow night. Marija is currently hospitalized after straining her vocal chords and will not be able to travel to Oslo.
The producer of the memory lane event told Gaysir website "this is very sad, especially for a young talent such as Marija. She has promised to come to Norway this autumn but until then, she has to rest her voice". He went on to wish Marija a speedy recovery to the problem which is most likely down to her grueling schedule since winning the Eurovision Song Contest in Helsinki. Marija played at the Budva festival on Sunday before seeking medical help after pain in her throat.
Although the contest winner will not be traveling to Norway, this year's home entrant, Guri Schanke has stepped in to fill the breach and will be performing tomorrow night. We are also promised some surprise appearances in what is expected to be the largest Eurovision Memory Lane event so far.
The video clip for this year's Eurovision Song Contest winner song Molitva has been shot in Belgrade, the clip for the English version of the song Destiny will be shot as well. Marija Serifovic and Beoton have opened a competition for debuting composers and lyricists. The winners will see their song included in Marija's forthcoming album
The video clip for Molitva was shot in a warehouse in Belgrade. The clip was produced by Moonfish, on a script by Manetu Šijanu.
Beoton and Marija Serifovic have opened a competition for new composers and lyricists. Marija, her executive producers and creative team will choose one of the songs submitted for Marija's forthcoming new album. Songs, lyrics together with the creator's contact details and CV should be sent to :

Hey guys. I just turned on the telly, and there was this awards show on, Bobster Awards, just as I turned it on they were handing out the "best Bobster live" award and guess who won!? Marija with Molitva, of course! :D She wasn't there to recieve the price in person, but she sent her best regards and told them how proud she was.
You can watch a short clip of her performance here, if you scroll down to the video with two blonde kids with the text "Bästa bobsterlive: Marija med Molitva" underneath it.
homepage Did any notice that you now can choose between Serbian and English on the homepage of Marija? Too bad that the articles/info on it don't actually change in English but this added option might indicate that they are looking into it. How cool is that?!
As promised. Simple ones to start with, made with the promo pics on Marija Serifovic's homepage. If anyone can point me to a website on how to make animated ones I might give that a try one of these days. :-) If someone want text on any of these, let me know. I'll obey all your wishes as I am your humble servant. :D
another article For those who speak Dutch: here's a link to another article about Marija. On the whole it says pretty much the same like the other Dutch article which was posted and translated already (thanks, weetniet!). But here you can also download an mp3 of the interview with Marija - see "Beluister het interview met Marija Šerifović" at the end of the article. I think she sounds really tired... And there is also a bunch of nice photos of her on this site. :)
Marija forum Hi all, since someone asked about lyrics and their translations, I thought I'd post this link here: http://www.marijaserifovic.tk/ is a fan forum and one of the Serbian girls there was so nice to translate all the lyrics (see "Lyrics" section). And there is also a section for discussions in English (and German, French, Spanish and Slovene).
