According to the former singer of the group The Sugarcubes, the women in the music industry only allowed to as a singer-songwriter to sing about relationships. “If it is about something else than your beloved, then we get criticism. Journalists have the idea that “something” is missing. It is as if they think that the only where we can sing our emotion is,” continues Björk.

“It could be that people just have to get used to. Fortunately, I get the support of my fans, that my musical journey and support and let me be who I am,” says the Icelandic singer.


To her indignation to endorse retrieves the singer and some of her albums. “I was aware the album Volta (2007) Biophilia (2011) to the fact that these topics were where women normally do not write about it. I had the feeling that I had earned it.”

The valuation of the media, according to her, however, until the album Vulnicura (2015), which she about “her broken heart” sang. “Men are allowed to from topic to topic, to be funny and to experiment with music, but women are not. If we do not sing about the men and children in our reading betrayed we our audience.”

The Icelandic singer hopes that this next year is going to change. “The right to vary as a girl. I have a feeling that that’s going to happen,” she concludes.
