It sounds like experimental music icon Bjork had a great time DJing at Houston's Day for Night festival earlier this week. She had the chance to perform alongside some of her favorite acts, including Aphex Twin, Arca and Oneohtrix Point Never. DJing is a new hobby of the singer, songwriter and producer, and it gives her great joy -- but what she doesn't like about it is the media's take.
“Some media could not get their head around that I was not 'performing' and 'hiding' behind desks, and my male counterparts not,” the Icelandic artist states in a post to Facebook. “I think this is sexism, which at the end of this tumultuous year is something I'm not going to let slide.”
She speaks on the gender-driven double standard that seems to say women should focus their subject matter on love and matters of the heart, while men are free to explore subjects of science, politics and humor to greater critical acclaim.
