Quotes:

I've Been reading about reincarnation, and the buddhists say we come back as animals and they refer to them as lesser beings, theyre just like us. So i say f*ck the buddhists!

This may sound like a contradition, but I like that in some ways things will always be the same. We'll always put a raincoat on when it rains and in a bathing suit when we go to the beach. And there will always be pop music. At the end of the day, people want to sit down and write about what's happened and what they're hoping for. It's so natural.
- Seventeen magazine- September 1997

I've always been happy, silly, sad, boring, furious, ecstatic, in love, the whole scale, all at the same time, it doesnt make me unhappy, if you see what I mean.
- The Times-July 2001

'I f*cking wake up in the morning with a far too big heart, I don't know what to do with it really. I love so many people so deeply that I can happily die now. It's scary. It's so scary it's outrageous. If it wasnt for my kid I would...emotionally-wise, I think I've achieved as much I think I can achieve.

For anyone to communicate, you have to make an effort. Whether you're born in Idaho with American TV or in Guatemala, you'll always have to fight certain barriers to communicate. For the first few years I sang, I used no words. Then very slowly I started throwing one or two Icelandic words in there. When I was eighteen I did my first tour abroad and I would translate one or two words into English, sing the rest in Icelandic and do noises as well. Communication is about energy. That's how we are and the language sometimes doesn't matter all that much.

That was some time ago. I'd shaved my eyebrows, I was very pregnant and I exposed my belly on a TV show, performing in my band KUKL, a jazz punk thing. Apparently the combination was too much for some viewers. One woman had a heart attack while she was watching and sued me. Fortunately, she lost!

Story about this misheard lyric by: Jeffrey

If you've never heard Bjork's mangled English, it may sound like s stretch to mangle the lyric this way. If you have, you'll know that MOST of her lyrics are incomprehensible without subtitles or sheet music.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Wearing a "swan dress" at the Oscars"
After receiving acclaim (but not an Oscar nomination) for her role in "Dancer In The Dark, Bjork showed up at the 2001 Academy Awards in a dress made to look like a swan, with its head and neck used as a strap to hold the dress up. Many fashion experts both praised and derided her for her fashion sense and audacity.

"Beating Up A Reporter While On Camera"
When the female reporter asked about Bjork's baby, she repeatedly punched the reporter while cameras were rolling. Bjork later apologized, and the reporter never pressed charges (as far as I know).
