I Heart Bjork
I don't always like everything Bjork does but it's worth the effort of trying out her music. I read a recent article here where she said:

"There is this stereotype of Icelanders all believing in spirits, and I've played up to that a bit in interviews too. As a member of Sigurrós said, whenever a foreign record company comes over to sign an Icelandic band, the first thing they do is ask the band members whether they believe in elves, and if the do, they get signed. I hate to sound grumpy, but there are a lot of people out there who believe in a 2000 year old fairy tale. Both sides are waiting for their Messiah to arrive. And then people point their fingers at us and say we are superstitious."

and also:
"You know, its ironic that just at the point the lawyers and the businessmen had calculated how to control music, the internet comes along and fucks everything up.? Björk gives the finger again, this time waving it into the air. ?God bless the internet," she adds.

And what about you, then?
"I'll still be there, waving a pirate flag."

So she is anti-religion and pro-filesharing? Wow, a popular artist that actually has "unpopular" opinions and shares them.

Check out her new album, Medulla, coming out next week.
