Trivia: Björk

  • Beam Me Up, Scotty!: Björk never said "I am a grateful grapefruit!". The real quote is above.
  • Black Sheep Hit - "It's Oh So Quiet" from Post, a jazz/big band song from an electronic/alternative artist.
  • Creator Backlash - 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.
  • Creator Breakdown - "So Broken" was written after an incident in which an insane stalker tried to send her a mail bomb, documenting the whole process on tape before recording his own suicide.
    • "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.
  • Creator Couple: With artist Matthew Barney, up until they broke up.
  • Dye Hard - Her natural hair color is dark brown, not black.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!
    • Medúlla features the big name beatboxers Rahzel, Shlomo and Dokaka (it was essentially his big break). Mike Patton appeared on a few songs, most recognizably singing the baritone backing vocals in "Where Is The Line".
    • The atmospheric haze in the background of "Náttúra" is Thom Yorke.
  • One of Us: Homogenic, Vespertine, Medúlla, and Biophilia are all named after scientific terms and phenomena.
  • What Could Have Been: She was originally approached to perform "Gollum's Song" for The Lord of the Rings, but declined, citing her pregnancy. Fellow Icelander Emilíana Torrini performed it instead.
