Icelandic singer Bjork has been accused of attacking a photographer at an airport in New Zealand, 12 years after the pop star was filmed wildly lashing out at a journalist at an airport in Thailand. The latest incident apparently happened shortly after the Play Dead singer arrived at Auckland International Airport ahead of a performance at the Big Day Out concert on Friday. She allegedly tore New Zealand Herald photographer Glenn Jeffrey’s shirt in half after he took a photo of her.Glenn Jeffrey and his torn shirt. Photo (R) Dean Purcell/NZ Herald Jeffrey, a news photographer for 25 years, said Bjork was accompanied by a man who asked him not take photos. He told the New Zealand Press Association: “I took a couple of pictures. And as I turned and walked away she came up behind me, grabbed the back of my black skivvy and tore it. As she did this she fell over, she fell to the ground. At no stage did I touch her or speak with her.” The photographer said that Bjork said nothing during the incident, but her male companion was saying: “B, don’t do this, B, don’t do this.” Jeffrey says he spoke with Auckland police about the incident. A spokeswoman for Auckland International Airport said staff would review video footage of the arrival area where the incident occurred if police requested it. Our main performer of the Athen’s Olympic Games’ Opening Ceremony was involved in a highly publicised altercation with a TV reporter at an airport in Thailand after a long-haul flight in 1996.

Bjork has been distinguished thanks to her exceptional style, her experimental music and her off-the-wall style and appearance, and it’s normal that you can easily be annoyed by photographers following every move you make. But still a little self control is demanded sometimes. Personally there only a few Bjork songs that I am fond off, I have more respect for her video clips and the directors she chooses. but still the best time I had with bjork was a French and Saunders video. Here is the original one…
