Ksenija Pajčin (Serbian Cyrillic: Ксенија Пајчин) (13 December 1977 – 16 March 2010) was a Serbian singer, dancer and model popular in Serbia and the other former Yugoslav republics. Sometimes referred to as Xenia or Xenija, she was known for her sometimes sexually appealing image on stage.
Pajčin was born in Belgrade and her family originates from Gubin, Bosnia and Herzegovina. She started her professional dancing career at discothèques.
Ksenija started her career as a go-go dancer. She appeared as backup dancer in the music video for Dragana Mirkovic’s song Opojni su zumbuli in 1994. She was offered the opportunity to join a pop duet, The Duck, as a female vocal. Marija Mihajlović actually sang for their debut album, while Pajčin only lip synced.
As a dancer, she became famous in Greece, where she performed in numerous night clubs. Pajčin later went on to have a solo music career, and while her vocals were not impressive, she garnered attention for her dancing and outfits. She owned a dance studio in Belgrade and worked as a model. She frequently appeared in tabloids and was known for her outrageous statements. She openly discussed her sex life and plastic surgery.
Ksenija and her boyfriend Filip were heavily injured and nearly died in a car accident on 28 January 2010, just 47 days before they died in a murder-suicide.
