It’s been oh, so quiet here at Vili Flik this week, so I thought we’d break the silence with one of my favorite singers, Bjørk Guðmundsdóttir (1965 – ) from Iceland.
She’s recorded nine albums: Bjørk (1977), Gling-Glo (1990), Debut (1993), Post (1995), Homogenic (1997), Vespertine (2001), Medulla (2004), Volta (2007) and Biophilia (2011). Good old wikipedia tells us that “She has embraced many genres throughout her career, creating a varied range of pieces, from big band music to sound art. Björk’s lyrical themes range from personal matters to scientific, natural, or social topics.”
In addition to being a musician, Bjørk has actually done some acting, and was awarded the best actress award at the Cannes Film Festival in 2000 for her role as Selma in Dancer in the Dark.
Bjørk is also known for her unique sense of style when it comes to fashion – she’s playful and often more than a little over the top, but somehow she tends to look awesome anyway. The famous swan dress of hers, designed by Marjan Pejoski, has been voted the ninth most iconic red carpet dress of all time. And, the lady managed to make time to contribute to an Alexander McQueen tribute last year. You get some Vili Flik Hottie points for that.
Now, I hope you’re all violently happy.
