Fresh Faces


Natalia Ilinichna Ionova, better known by her stage name Glukoza, is a Russian singer known for her new wave, alternative pop, ska and dance pop music. She also did some acting and was in the films "Triumph" and "War Of The Princesses," as well as a few episodes of "Yeralash"

Glukoza's music career began when she was discovered in 2002 by record producer Maxim Fadeev. Together they recorded her first album "Glukoza Nostra" and released her first music video "Nenavizhu" (I Hate), which was entirely computer animated. Her singles found little popularity until 2003 when she released "Nevesta" (Bride), accompanied once again by a computer animated video. That song shot Glukoza to the top of the Russian music charts.

Other popular singles released over the next two years were "Glukoza Nostra," "Sneg Idet" (It's Snowing), "Oi, Oi," "Malish" (Babe), "Karina," and the duet with Verka Serduchka "Zhenixa Xotela" (I wanted a Groom).

Her success in music has earned her many accolades such as the MTV-EMA award for "Best Russian Act," the Muz-TV award for "Breakthrough of the Year," and her animated character was named "Character of Year" by the Russian internet search engine Rambler.

Since 2003, Glukoza has given over 500 concerts within three years in the Far East, Siberia, the Urals, the Volga Region, the center section of Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Central Asia, the Caucasus, United Kingdom and the United States. The number of tickets sold for Glukoza's concerts totals to over 1.5 million.

Glukoza became the face of Avon Color Trend, the spokeswoman for Motivi clothing and 'My Scene' dolls, and lend her animated image and logo to Rekondor Ice Cream. She was also featured on the cover of such magazines as Elle Girl, Hello Magazine, Seventeen Magazine, and Shape Magazine.

Я благодарна судьбе за подарки в виде новых знакомств, встреч, предложений, опыта и приключений. Мне нравится открывать для себя новое, будь то новая кухня, новый сценический образ или неожиданная профессия. Я люблю эксперименты, а эксперименты любят меня!))) Поэтому я без раздумий согласилась на предложение журнала TopBeauty стать главным редактором их специального октябрьского номера. Сначала от редакции поступило предложение стать fashion-редактором. Мы встретились, чтобы проговорить детали моей новой должности, но в процессе так увлеклись глобальными вопросами, вроде обложки, темы номера, распределения звездного состава на другие рубрики, что редакторы зажглись и сразу повысили меня до главного редактора - так понравилось им мое видение этого специального номера. 😀💪🏼😊 Я рада, что могу попробовать себя в новой роли именно сейчас - в этом возрасте, с определенным накоплением жизненного багажа, мыслей, сознания... Впереди много планов по специальным проектам, съемкам и интервью, которые я решила брать самостоятельно... Я в волнительном предвкушении. Скоро познакомлю вас с составом нашей звездной редакции и постараюсь вести дневник наших скучных редакционных будней... 😅😀✌🏻️😊😜👻 Вижу часто комментарии "ну, вот - еще и редактором заделалась! Лучше б пела себе и пела!" А зачем отказывать себе в покорении новых горизонтов? Только лишь из-за того, что не умеешь, не знаешь, боишься пробовать или что не получится? Не бойтесь говорить жизни "да"! Иногда за закрытыми дверьми скрываются заветные и счастливые открытия... 😜✌🏻️ @topbeauty_magazine @katrinche @free_for_u #glukoza #topbeauty #глюкоза

In June 2005 Glukoza released her second album "Moskva" with hit singles "Schweine" (Pigs), "Yura," "Moskva" (Moscow), and "K Chertu" (To hell), bringing her total album sales to over 1 million. In December 2005, she recorded and released an English version of her popular song "Schweine" that never took off with the public. In late June 2006, Glukoza married Alexander Chistyakov, the manager of the power supply systems of Russia. Her engagement to Mr. Chistyakov inspired Glukoza's manager Maxim Fadeev to write her most recent hit single "Svadba" (Wedding).

Later in October 2006, Glukoza released a new single titled "Sashok," which is about her love for her husband. The next month, in November, Glukoza gave her rumored-to-be "final" concert in St. Petersburg. She continued to give small private concerts around Russia until January 2007, when she finally announced that she was taking her pregnancy leave.

After the pregnancy leave, she released another single called "Dengi" (Money). During the festival, "New Wave" she sang a duet with Maxim Fadeev "Sicily." In May 2010, she released new single "Vot Takaya Lubov."

Her song "Schweine" is featured prominently in the video game Grand Theft Auto IV in the game's Eastern European-radio station Vladivostok FM.
