-Katy Perry you're so gay and you don't even like girls....Considder yourself arsewhipped!
But Björk shakes off that sexist pig,grabs him by the balls and:
I saw in the last issue of iceland's newspaper in english : “grapevine” , that valgeir sigurðsson was credited for having written all the instrumentals for my album vespertine . could i please offer a correction :
I have noticed last 7 years that mr. sigurðsson has often been credited for either writing or producing that album . i´d like to say that he didn´t write it or produce . he was a computer programmer for a third of it and a recording engineer for a third . The other two thirds were done by other engineers and programmers .
here is the creditlist to show you the correct crediting of vespertine .
i don´t understand where that misunderstanding has come fromcould be one of four options :
1 :the pop critics of this world have not totally yet worked out the difference between engineering , programming , writing and producing electronic music . visually this appears very similar . a man/woman sitting in front of a computer . not as different as for example a drummer , a brass arranger and an engineer . but these are 3 completely different jobs which journalists must start to see the difference
2: it could be that this is some degree of sexism . m.i.a. had to deal with this with the respected website pitchfork.com where they assumed that diplo had produced all of her kala album without reading any credit list or nothing , it just had to be , it couldn´t have been m.i.a. herself ! it feel like still today after all these years people cannot imagine that woman can write , arrange or produce electronic music . i have had this experience many many times that the work i do on the computer gets credited to whatever male was in 10 meter radius during the job . people seem to accept that women can sing and play whatever instrument they are seen playing .but they cannot program , arrange , produce , edit or write electronic music .
3 : i´ll admit that one thing could confuse things : people have to use their ears and actually read the creditlist to get this information . all the music i have made : like for example string arrangements , synthbasslines or programming of electronic patterns , i never play myself live because i want to give 100% of myself into the singing i either ask the computers to play it or i get other musicians to play it . this could confuse things .
4: one thing that could have kept this misunderstanding alive is that neither me nor valgeir sigurðsson have bothered to correct it
-but i am doing it now.
i hope this correction will be a positive input into more discussion about this
p.s. just read that pitchfork.com credited nico muhly for the choir arrangement of “hidden place” from vespertine . also that he has done string arrangements for me . this is not true . journalists : please read the creditlist before you write your articles
-When I first read this I was like mwaha.But,now I'm like arwh.+Nothing makes me happier,than when Pitchforkmeadia-guys are being trashed by celebrities...Booya!

First Kris-Then Justice-Now Jude..OMG WTF LOL..brrr_-_Those Dior Homme concept guys must be really isolated up there in their tower of doom to come up with so shitty ppl to represent their sinking ship of a brand for the metro/homo-sexual man(I know it was a long sentence.But, I had to let it all out at once).Seems like they could use some swedish indie therapy:

After Some time off the air Beverly Hills 90210 finally returned, or so I thought. It turns out they just made an updated version of the old show and called it 90210(with only a few from the original cast in comepletely new roles)---The trailer looks pretty bad..Where's the nerdbabe?where's the hot surferdude?Where's the yingyang bitches?Where's the love?Where's the hatred?Where's the heart?---Is it just me,or did the world just got a little bit suckier to live in?
Girls PLEASE!Let it go....-trying to drink fancy tea out of little fancy cups,impossible to hold in your littlefinger for more than 2 seconds-buying luxurious sweets and arranging them too decorately on your new vintage cake trays- humming "Hong Kong Garden" whenever your feet touches something remotely grassy-etc etc. Seriously, the movie was in 2006 but the trend is still remaining. Pick up the paste ladies and get a move on. You can't live the fantasy life of being naive and careless princesses forever. Even Paris Hilton has got a job!
John and I want you to forget it's monday bloody monday.We want to make you sweat,shake and bleed. I tried to keep it real and only have discotracks and cowbell sessions in the mix-But that crazy cool Johnny longpants was of an other oppinion and threw a little punkdirt in the machinery.We'd also like to inform you that it's extremely important to drink lots of liquids while shaking your bones to these hot-hot-summertracks.
Boycutting BUTT and buying GLU-Magazine instead has been one of the greatest desicions I've ever made.Butch upon butch penismodel gets a bit borring in the long run, so I thought it was time for a change.Everything in this magazine is way cuter,sexier and just ARGH more fantastic than BUTT could ever dream of becomming. Instead of selling crappy merchandise Tees, they sell crappy merchandise Bandanas!!!!!!+after just the 7th isssue they even made a CD!---brr to all you gay/bi(out of the closet/still hanging on to the knob)-curious ppl./WHOEVER,WHATEVER you are really...Please! save up 8 euro and go buy that magazine.

In the Fall of 2008 I'm going to lock the door and stay inside untill somebody'll drag me out of my prancing around in my pyjama sportswear trance. I'm gonna do flip flops and ballet moves till my head spins, my mouth pukes and my nose starts snorting out blood.
Going out ( Ann Demeulemeester/Damir Doma )
But, when I finally do come out of my fall-hypernating::I won't let style go before comfort(I'm gonna let them go hand in hand). Those big over-sized/religious hats will finally be worn by boys like me and not another hopeless swedish indiegirl lost in translation. I'll quilt my pants from golden leaves found on the ground and strutt out into the nigthlife in a suit that says:"It's 100% sexy to be a treehugger like me".
Perez Hilton-here I come!
Two of my biggest manias this summer are swimming(I can't do anything else than dogswimming on my front-and back swimming...I'm training to learn how to do the frontthing properly) and searching Veoh.tv every single day for the newest motion picture from Hiyao Miyazaki:Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea---I'm becomming seriously obsessed
