It has been quite some time since our beloved Bjork has gone apeshit on a photographer. The inner storm of her hatred towards the paparazzi finally came to a boil once again this weekend as she attacked a newspaper photographer at New Zealand’s Auckland International Airport.
Reuters is reporting that the Icelandic musician had flown into the airport for her performance later in the week. Glenn Jeffrey, the photographer for the Herald who got his ass whupped by Bjork, was asked by an individual to not take any photographs. Jeffrey figured what the hell, somehow not remembering Bjork’s previous photographer pounding back in ’96, and took a few snaps. Well, her fists of fury were awakened. Bjork was pissed, unleashing her own “Army Of Me” on the journalist.
About the attack, Jeffrey said: “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. As she did this she fell over, she fell to the ground. At no stage did I touch her or speak with her.”
Fellow journalists, let this be a reminder: don’t fuck with Bjork.
