Bleona Refuses To Compromise With New Single “F*** You I’m Famous”

Bleona Qereti

When Bleona first began her long musical journey as a child in Albania, little did she know that her travels would eventually lead her to America, or that her songs would inspire people all over the world. When her next hit single, “FUIF (F*** You I’m Famous)” is released on iTunes September 15th, it will bring Bleona’s no compromise attitude and wicked sense of humor booming out of sound systems everywhere, letting her fans know that they should never take “no” for an answer.

Bleona’s message of unwavering independence has been a component of her music and her stage show since her earliest live performances. At the age of 15, Bleona surprised her audience by unveiling a pair of blue, patent leather pants under her full length shawl. Although this would not appear shocking by American standards, in Albania this slight bit of stagecraft was seen as outrageous and rebellious. Nevertheless, this stunt got Bleona noticed by the national press and she became a celebrity overnight. From here on out, everybody was wondering what this girl was going to do next.

Bleona Qereti knew she wanted to maintain a career in entertainment, but, as she tells it, there was no such thing for somebody living in Albania at the time. “At that time,” Bleona recounts, “Albania was a suppressed, politically volatile country, so performing, as a career, was not an option.” Bleona soldiered on though, forging her own trail in an industry that, basically, hadn’t been invented in Albania yet. Not only did she bring American style performance to the stages of her native country, she was also the first artist in Albania to produce a full-length pop music album, and a pop music video.

Essentially, Bleona was an entertainment industry pioneer in her native country of Albania, and when “F*** You I’m Famous” is released on iTunes September 15th, America too can experience the magic.

Bleona’s “F*** You I’m Famous” Encourages Her Fans To Follow Their Dreams

When Albanian superstar Bleona played New York City’s historic Webster Hall on her first tour of the United States, she knew immediately that she had to relocate from her native country and live here. Soon after, her dreams came to fruition, when Bleona was offered an opportunity to work on numerous television and music projects, including working with multi platinum and Grammy- award winning producer Timbaland, she now calls America home.

Bleona Qereti
As one can surely tell by now, Bleona’s whole career has been based on staying true to her own vision, not compromising, and following her dreams. On September 15th when Bleona’s latest single “FUIF (F*** You I’m Famous)” is released on iTunes, her message, that a person can do anything she sets her mind to, is destined to inspire a whole new generation of young women to crowd the dance floors with the attitude of a millionaire.

Bleona Qereti
“F*** You I’m Famous,” Bleona’s audacious collaboration with producer/songwriter Alex Cantrall (Kelly Clarkson, Pink) was written, Bleona confides,  as “an anthem for every 17-year-old girl who can’t get into the clubs  because she is underage, or any other person who can’t get into the clubs because they are not ‘famous’ enough.”

Bleona Qereti
Bleona has always encouraged young women to take control of their own destinies, and to not allow others to discourage them from pursuing their dreams. “I think every woman has the right to follow their dreams,” Bleona asserts, “and my songs have a real message of girl power.” As someone who has created a spectacularly successful pop music career from a country where such an industry didn’t even exist, Bleona is a credible example of girl power in action.

Bleona Qereti
When released on September 15th, “F*** You I’m Famous” will remind her fans that they, too, should stand up for what they believe.

Bleona Confounds Expectations Again With “FUIF (F*** You I’m Famous)”

Marlon Brando. James Dean. Al Pacino. Bleona. What could all these icons of cool possibly have in common? Well, they were all trained in theater’s famed “Stanislavski method,” better known simply as “Method acting.” Method acting is an approach to performance that rejects the old theatrical forms of overacting for a more “natural” emotional presentation. Considering the theatricality of Bleona’s musical performances, many of Bleona’s fans would probably not guess that she has this little theatrical trick up her sleeve.

Bleona Qereti

But, that is one of Bleona’s many strategies; always keep them guessing. Bleona has raised the stakes and pushed the envelope since she began her show business career at the age of 5. Whether she was scandalously exposing a pair of blue patent leather pants under a black shawl as a teenage performer, or being the first music star in her home country of Albania to produce a pop music video, Bleona has always looked forward to what she will do next. For example, now that Bleona has conquered half the world with her high-octane disco diva pop singles and stage show, she has her sights set on America as the next stop in her quest for total global domination.

Bleona Qereti

Bleona, who speaks English, Italian, and German, in addition to her native Albanian, has recently relocated to the United States, but she can just as frequently be found soaking up the sun in exotic island settings like St. Tropez, Ibiza, and Sardinia. Although her fans would undoubtedly expect her to spend her off-time in some of the world’s most beautiful locations, many may not know that she had studied finance before becoming the globetrotting superstar she is. For all the glamor and glitz that Bleona represents in her new video and upcoming single, the appropriately titled “FUIF (F*** You I’m Famous),” there will always be deeper layers to Bleona that the world may never know.

Bleona Faces Her Challenges And Follows Her Dreams

When Bleona wakes up in the morning, there is no telling where she will be; maybe St. Tropez, Paris, Milan, or Ibiza. Having toured the world professionally in support of her numerous top selling singles and albums since a teenager, Bleona incorporated the glamor discovered on her global adventures into her mind-blowing stage show, as well as to her personal life. She counts clothing designer Roberto Cavalli amongst her best friends, and was introduced to multi-million selling producer David Foster by multi-billionaire Donald Trump. Her career has also propelled her to perform for practically every billionaire and dignitary in Europe and Russia. So, why did Bleona finally move to America?

Bleona Qereti

Basically, capturing the American market is only one more step in Bleona’s goal of total world domination. Bleona sees life as a series of challenges, and she feels that you can do anything you set your mind to. “We are all our own competition,” Bleona asserts, “and the only person who you need to be better than is the person you were yesterday.” Perhaps that is why her songs of female empowerment have made such an impact on the dance floor, and have catapulted her to the top of the charts all over Europe.

Bleona Qereti

Bleona makes a conscious effort to promote a positive message with her music, explaining, “I believe that every woman has the power to follow her dreams.” At one time her goal was to become an icon in her home country of Albania and, having accomplished that, she wanted to rule the dance floors of Europe. Now, Bleona is in America, where her work with producer Timbaland (“Pass Out”) and mixmaster Reid Stefan (“Take it Like a Man”) did not go unnoticed in the clubs. On September 15th, Bleona’s “FUIF (F*** You I’m Famous),” a collaboration with songwriter/producer Alex Cantrall (Justin Timberlake, Fergie) will be released on iTunes, and once again her message of “no compromise” will have this nation dancing.

Bleona Qereti

Q: How did Bleona first come to life?

Bleona Qereti

A: I was a singer since I was 5-years-old. I joined The House of Pionieri, which is the Albanian equivalent to The Mickey Mouse Club, and I was also on my first magazine cover at the age of five. My father was a part of the Albanian secret service and I did my first impromptu solo concert at their Christmas party at the age of nine, the band was playing and I grabbed the microphone for two hours and took over the party! It was then that I knew what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. At that time, Albania was a suppressed, politically volatile country, so performing as a career wasn’t really seen as an option, but I wasn’t about to let anyone stop me.

Bleona Qereti

Q: How would you describe your personality?

Bleona Qereti

A: I am a diva, and I happily admit it! I’m strong and I don’t need anyone to pay my bills or take care of me. I think every woman has the right to follow her dreams, and I believe my songs have a real message of “girl power” within them. Sometimes people think I am difficult, or am too critical, and that I work things to the ground in details, but I don’t care as long as it is for the right reason. I don’t compromise.

Bleona Qereti

Q: Who or what inspires you?

Bleona Qereti

A: Challenges. I love challenges. I live to challenge myself. There is no better way of living.

Bleona Qereti

Q: Do you have any words of wisdom for aspiring performers?

Bleona Qereti

A: Don’t let anyone else kill your dreams and tell you that “you can’t make it.” The only thing standing between yourself and your goals is your own bullshit story that you keep telling yourself of why you can’t achieve something. I believe in mind over matter, and that you can do anything you set your mind to. I set a goal for myself when I was a little girl that I wanted to be an icon in my own country, and somehow I have achieved that. Now my goal is to go global.
The only person you need to be better than is the person you were yesterday. We are all our own competition.

Bleona Qereti

Q: What does Bleona like to do when she is not out conquering the world?

Bleona Qereti

A: Trying to generate ideas to conquer the world!!!

Bleona Qereti

Q: What are the most important things to you, and why?

Bleona Qereti

A: Honesty and determination. Honesty is important because you need to be honest with yourself first before you can be honest with anybody else about what REALLY makes you happy. Then, being determined to achieve your happiness and never giving up, no matter what, should be the biggest goal in life.

Bleona Qereti

Q: What career would you choose if you weren’t a famous entertainer?

Bleona Qereti

A: Famous entertainer. There is no Plan B, Plan A has to work! I believe the second place is the first loser.

Bleona Qereti

Q: Who are your favorite artists, and why?

Bleona Qereti

Bleona Qereti

Bleona Qereti Loud And Clear

Bleona Qereti

Although Bleona Qereti has been a star in her native Albania since the age of five, she is just beginning to make her splash here in America. Last year’s hit single “Take It Like A Man” got the nation dancing, while also making it to #7 on the UK dance charts, and this year’s “FUIF (F*** You I’m Famous)” encapsulates the rebellious and independent spirit which she has become known for. Early in her career when she was branded the “Madonna of Albania” because of her irresistible dance-pop, her elaborate stage shows, and her outspoken demeanor, Bleona was quick to correct the press by countering, “I am NOT the ‘next Madonna.’ I am the first Bleona.”

Bleona Qereti

Already a pop music veteran in her home country, Bleona has recently relocated to the United States to focus on multiple music and television projects that will no doubt propel her into international superstar status. She has already made a guest appearance on Steven Seagal’s television crime drama True Justice, has collaborated with rap mastermind and Justin Timberlake producer Timbaland on her 2012 hit single “Pass Out,” and has performed at a private party for Donald Trump at his Palm Beach, Florida resort Mar-A-Lago.

Bleona Qereti

Bleona has the ability to put anyone in a trance, which is evidenced by her powers to attract some of the most powerful influential figures in the world. She is no stranger to exclusive circles, performing for the world’s elite billionaire business executives, government dignitaries and rubbing elbows with top fashion designers. Bleona is lightning in a bottle and her energy is infectious, however she does actually take some time to rest and considers Paris and Milan her second homes where she can recharge her battery.

Bleona Qereti

Bleona Qereti is laser focused on empowering people, especially young women to know their worth and encourages them not rely on others to measure their significance in the world. Her hit single “F*** You I’m famous” is dedicated to all the people who can’t get into clubs because they are not “famous” enough and is a mixture of parody with hidden societal truths. Bleona asserts “FUIF” will be the anthem of every 17-year-old girl on the planet.

Bleona Qereti

As Bleona claims in her “FUIF” single, she aims to “Put the loco back in the locomotion,” and with her mixture of humor, determination, and attitude, there is no reason why she will not become as much a household name in America as she is in her home country.  With song titles such as “You Weren’t Man Enough for Me,” “I Run My Own Game,” and “You Deserved It,” Bleona’s clearly indomitable character should soon be speaking to the American public loud and clear.
