Return of Nera

Unlike the other Story Supernova Music Talents finalists, Nera Stipičević (Nera Stipicevic) spent last few months far from public spotlight. Saša Lozar (Sasa Lozar), Tin Samardžić (Tin Samardzic) and Damir Kedžo (Damir Kedzo) had their 365 song as part of Scream 3 publicity campaign, Rafael Dropulić (Rafael Dropulic) entertained the critics with his autobiographic song Ja sam Rafo (although the video wasn't something to write home about), while Natalie Dizdar had few festival gigs.

After unsuccessful bid to get much-coveted role in Croatian stage version of Chicago, Nera spent months trying to relaunch her career, this time as genuine pop star. The results of such efforts – videoclip of the song Centar svita - can be seen at Nova TV.

I'm not impressed. In the clip Nera shows that can sing and dance, but the quality of music and lyrics is simply below her standards. What was supposed to be genuine article is going to be turned into clone of Severina Vučković (Severina Vuckovic). And it could be argued that this country is too small for two Severinas.

Sorry to comment inappropriately here- your email link is non-functional.

The woman I'm dating is Croatian, she's got an interesting history but she is very tight lipped about it. Here's what she's told me:

civil war
12 girls held by 6 men
2 survived
imagine the pictures
they thought we were all dead.

It must have been on or around 1991 I think- One of the girls who was killed was her twin sister.

She said she was "very famous" for a while after that. The family fled and came to NY.

This happened in Split, Croatia.

Since I am a stupid Ameican, I can't speak any other languages and can't read the Croatian news archives. Do you think you can help me research this? She told me I could find out if I looked hard enough- I know the info is out there.

Thanks, hope to hear from you.
