11 Things You Didn’t Know About Bjork


"There's no map to human behaviour."

It has been made very clear over the past few decades: There is nobody on this planet quite like Björk. The 47-year-old Icelandic singer (full name: Björk Guðmundsdóttir) takes creativity to new heights, and over the past few decades she's pulled off a level of both critical and commercial success that few artists in the history of music have matched. The most impressive thing about this is that she's done it all without ever conforming to any rules other than the ones she's set for herself. She's an artist's artist, and whether or not you're a fan, you've most likely been entertained, amused, impressed, or mindfucked by Björk at some point in your life.

To celebrate her birthday today, we've dug up some things that you may not know about the eclectic artist that we've all come to love.
