Vesna Vukelić (Serbian Cyrillic: Весна Вукелић; born 25 November 1971), known by her stage name Vendi, is a Serbian folk singer, media personality and sex symbol of the 90s.

Known for her provocative image and teasing magazines cover shots, Vendi is also infamously known for voicing her opinion on her colleagues which sometimes leads to media conflicts.[1] Vendi has appeared in various reality shows such as Farma and Veliki Brat.

Life and career[edit]

Career[edit]

In 1992 she debuted in the TV movie Dama koja ubija alongside Velimir Živojinović in the lead role. Vendi then devoted her time to music. Her debut album, Malo vruće, malo hladno was the year's second best selling album in Yugoslavia, after Dragana Mirković. After her maternity leave Vendi's popularity has been in a decline.[2] She has released five studio albums to date. Her best known songs include 'Uljez' (Intruder; 2007) and 'Praćnuo se šarančić' (Carp Splashed; 2004). Vendi also hosted her own talk show on TV Politik back in the 90s, wrote and starred in a theater play titled Vendi u Petkovim mukama, which gained popularity throughout Montenegro.[3] and is also working on a novel.[4]

Personal life[edit]

Vendi was allegedly romantically involved with Vojislav Šešelj. She has been married to former football player Branimir Banjac since 2001 with whom she has a daughter Nikoleta (2001).[5] She resides in Belgrade, Serbia. Vukelić is presenting herself as a very religious person with strong Othodox Christian beliefs.
