15 years after hosting Europe's ugliest civil war since the Holocaust, VICE takes a road trip across the remnants of Old Yugoslavia.

Turbofolk is tacky, high-octane techno with melodies based loosely on traditional Balkan folk music. Which would make it the same as popular music in pretty much any country in Europe if it wasn't also paid for by the Serbian and Croatian mafias (sometimes the Montenegrin) and served as the soundtrack to some of the most heinous war crimes since the Holocaust. It's a bit of a trippy scene. The Madonna of Turbofolk, Ceca Ražnatović, is currently under house arrest for embezzlement and hiding a cache of assault rifles in her basement. So we caught up with her protege, Goga Sekulic, a heavily-bronzed tower of woman best known for her hits "Gaćice [Panties]" and "Seksi Businessman [Sexy Businessman]" and went out for some Tuesday-night turboclubbing in Belgrade.

OMG, You took Goga Sekulic as tour operator through Serbia ??? You just failed in reporting big time. That would be like using Kim Kardashian to explain cultural side of America. Goga Sekulic is trash of Serbian folk/pop music, and trash in any other way. She is famous golddigger, and that is all you need to know about her and scene she is presenting to you as mainstream.

Speaking as a Latin/Caribbean American who has spent time in Serbia, I can tell you that this "documentary" was a mishandled act of defamation. Belgrade is a great city and the people are incredibly warm. I made tons of friends there in a week and never once felt threatened or near danger. Vice has a habit of focusing solely on the negative in traditionally poorer countries (especially when they aren't all that well aligned with US policy) and they have a habit of sending this particular limp dick hipster into places he has no insight into, no understanding of, and a clear fear (and sometimes bias) of. I don't know if Vice sets out to do this purposefully because that's the angle they think will sell the story, or if it's simply because they send in the wrong personnel for the job.
