Bjork Unleashes Massive Attack

Photos: WENN

Reminiscent of her attack on a female reporter over ten years ago at the airport in Bangkok (see video after the jump), the Icelandic pop star has unleashed her fury on another reporter. This time, it was a photographer in New Zealand, who didn’t heed Bjork’s request that he not take any pictures. When the photog continued to shoot pictures, Bjork attacked the man, ripping his shirt in half at the Auckland International Airport.

The photographer described the encounter: “I took a couple of pictures and I got about three or four frames of her … and as I turned and walked away she came up behind me, grabbed the back of my black skivvy (sweatshirt) and tore it down the back.” Reportedly, Bjork was accompanied by a male companion, who begged her to stop and was also the one to request that no pictures be taken. Maybe she’s skittish about flying or something and freaks out if being photographed en route to somewhere. People need to give her space, cause Bjork doesn’t play. Just ask her eyeliner.

    I don’t know what anyone sees in this woman (or hears for that matter.) Maybe her and Yoko Ono should make an album together, they must have the same fanbase!!!!

    What do I see/hear in her?

    I hear some incredible music in most of her studio releases. I do like John Lennon’s music… but Yoko Ono is more of a performance artist than a musician. Bjork is a great songwriter and singer.

    Bjork rocks, or at the very least: once did. Her voice is incredible, especially when she reins it in. Just don’t f*ck with her, apparently.

    there is actually some question as to if this really happened. If you look at the picture of the “ripped shirt” she would have to be Edward Scissorhands to make a cut that straight and perfect. The police have said that there has been no complaint filed against her and as of now, there are no witnesses to the “event”. It sounds like the photographer is the one looking for attention.

    I love this woman. She doesn’t take any shit. She is a huge talent. Anyone who wants to talk trash about her craft or talent doesn’t know jack about music. She is way ahead of her time. Sorta like Prince was when he opened for the Stones and all those hippy loser throwbacks tried to boo him off stage.

    i don’t know about you, but imagine being harassed day in and day out by papparazi jerks. They don’t care for her music, they don’t give a f**k about any one, just their story.
    Then imagine being a genius, a sensitive creative insecure constantly scrutinized and criticized phenomena who is way ahead of her time and immitates no one! such as Bjork…
    Then throw in a bad day, some jet lag, some stress, a fight with a boyfriend, then some dick paparazi who just wants to see her break down for a good story.
    Does it really need an explanation?
