In a recent interview with The Guardian, Icelandic goddess Björk came out as a huge fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
“My assistant James Merry, who’s become my collaborator now, introduced me to it back in 2009 when we were in Costa Rica,” she explained. “I would watch it occasionally with him.”
“Then recently I was looking for something to watch with my daughter, and over the last few months we we watched all eight series,” she said. “It’s uplifting how [RuPaul] builds up the queens, he gives them tough love and they blossom throughout the series.”
She added: “It’s really life-affirming—but on top of everything else it’s obviously hilarious. I know all the queens now by name—we quote it left, right and center.”
Bjork also revealed that she loved Katya’s “Snatch Game” impression of her on a Reddit AMA today.
“YESSSSSSSS i absolutely loved it,” she replied, “especially when she started humming to herself, ha ha ha. Selfishly I was hoping for a more current version like a Vulnicura one lol. But she nailed the feminist activist tribal volta… [Imitation is the] sincerest form of flattery.”
