* BeamMeUpScotty: Björk never said "I am '''a''' grateful grapefruit!" at the 1998 Brit Awards. She merely said "I am grateful grapefruit".
* BlackSheepHit: "It's Oh So Quiet" from ''Music/{{Post}}'', a jazz/big band song from an electronic/alternative artist.
* CreatorBacklash: Her most popular and most successful song is the aforementioned "It's Oh So Quiet". Björk got angry that her most popular song is a cover, and now she rarely performs it.
** After the TroubledProduction of ''Film/DancerInTheDark'', she stated that she ''hated'' working with Creator/LarsVonTrier so much that she vowed to never act again, despite winning Best Actress award at Cannes for that film. However in 2005--where she got cast as the lead in her then-husband's [[LeFilmArtistique arthouse film]] ''Drawing Restraint 9''--she stated that she would act again, but ''not'' for Lars von Trier.
* CreatorBacklash: In an interview with Pitchfork, she claims that she has these feelings towards "Black Lake", which was effectively her giving her ex-lover Matthew Barney a lengthy ReasonYouSuckSpeech (which led to some summarizing the song as her version of a diss track).
-->"I was really embarrassed about that song. I can still hardly listen to it."
* CreatorBreakdown: Slightly before recording began on ''Homogenic'', a LoonyFan of hers named Ricardo López who made a video diary detailing his obsession over her as well as a letterbomb that he sent to her home (it was intercepted before it could do any harm) before killing himself. After the incident, she stated that it distressed and disturbed her, instilling a deep sensation of paranoia that [[ParanoiaFuel someone could get so involved in her personal life so as to potentially hurt her]] [[AdultFear or her child]]. This led to the song "So Broken".
** "Vulnicura" is a word made up from "Vulnus", Latin for "Wound", and "Cura", Latin for "Care". This "complete heartbreak album", to quote Björk, is the way she coped after her breakup with Matthew Barney.
* CreatorCouple: With artist Matthew Barney, up until they broke up.
* DyeHard: Her natural hair color is dark brown, not black.
* HitlessHitAlbum: In the USA, ''Debut'' and ''Post'' both went Platinum, but ''Debut'' only had one low-charting single[[note]]("Big Time Sensuality" peaked at #88)[[/note]], while ''Post'' didn't produce any charting singles.
* OneOfUs: ''Music/{{Homogenic}}'', ''Music/{{Vespertine}}'', ''Music/{{Medulla}}'', and ''Biophilia'' are all named after scientific terms and phenomena.
* TroubledProduction: The famous video for "All is Full of Love", [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QReuUcQ_c9U as recounted here]], was this for director Chris Cunningham. Because of all the complicated effects required in post-production, the initial footage was essentially still shots of the set and props, and Björk in a blue costume and white facepaint, with Cunningham having a full-blown panic attack over how cheap and ramshackle it looked. Björk trusted him enough that she first saw the video when it was finished, an act of faith that ultimately paid off as it's widely regarded as one of her best.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** She was originally approached to perform "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkXbzffVl44 Gollum's Song]]" for Film/TheLordOfTheRings, but declined, citing her pregnancy. Fellow Icelander Emilíana Torrini performed it instead.
** Music/WuTangClan were originally supposed to produce for ''Music/{{Homogenic}}'', but had to drop out due to their album's delayed production schedule.
** "It's in Our Hands" was originally recorded for ''Music/{{Vespertine}}'' but ultimately didn't appear in the track list. It eventually appeared in her ''Greatest Hits'' album as a previously unreleased song.
** She originally envisioned ''Vespertine'' as an album called ''Domestika'', which would feature intimate-sounding music, sounds of household objects, and lyrics that "celebrated the banalities of daily life" such as searching one's house for a lost set of keys. The overall feel of the music and the idea of using household objects remained, but the lyrics started revolving around love and sex. "Domestica", a BSide to the "Pagan Poetry" single, is a glimpse at the original idea for the album, as it's the aforementioned song about missing keys.
