Jelena Karleuša Tošić (Serbian Cyrillic: Јелена Карлеуша Тошић; born 17 August 1978) is a Serbian singer. Referred to as the "Madonna of the Balkans" and "Lady Gaga of Serbia" by Focus and W magazine, respectively, she is noted for her often controversial public persona and provocative appearance.

Rose to prominence in the mid-nineties, Karleuša established herself as one of the leading regional performers during the following decades with a series of successful albums, including Samo za tvoje oči (2002), Magija (2005), JK Revolution (2008) and Diva (2012), and two headline Belgrade concerts: All About Diva (2010) and Viva la Diva Show (2013). Subsequently, she managed to gain in social media following and influence through her fashion style, becoming the first Serbian personality after Novak Djokovic to reach one million followers on Instagram. Karleuša also became a judge on the popular televised singing competition Zvezde Granda in 2015.
