We thought we hadn't heard from her in a while!
Björk had vocal surgery! She confirmed just last week that she had a successful surgery that removed a polyp from her vocal chords — which, we're sure, was a very scary thing to do for someone who sings for a living.
She actually first discovered the polyp a few years ago and tried to take care of it by doing stretches and changing her diet, which didn't exactly work. She says that advances in technology are what convinced her to have the surgery.
Here's what she said:
Bjork is doing awesome stuff for the environment in awesome ways!
She recently launched a three-day karaoke marathon in Iceland to help raise awareness about Iceland’s environmental issues. There is currently a referendum in Iceland that would allow its natural resources to be publicly owned instead of being taken over by Canadian parties — which she supports.
"Anyone will be allowed to sing. And we intend to sing our resources back,” said Bjork about the marathon.
We love it!!
