Los Angeles, Dec 22 (PTI) Singer-songwriter Bjork has slammed media for propogating gender stereotypes following the criticism ofher DJ sets at Houston's Day for Night festival.
Bjork said women can sing about their boyfriends but the moment they pick up a nerdy subject, they get criticised "as you know the majority of my career i havent moaned
about sexism and just got on w it. but im feeling there is an enormous positive current in the sky , a flow w possible changes so i wanted to mention one thing (sic)," she wrote on Facebook.
The 51-year-old artist had two DJ sets at Houston's Day for Night music festival and she took exception with unnamed journalists critiquing her choice to work the decks instead of play an instrument, something that did not extend to male DJs.
"i think this is sexism. which at the end of this tumultuous year is something im not going to let slide : because we all deserve maximum changes in this revolutionary
energy we are currently in the midst of (sic)," she wrote.
"women in music are allowed to be singer songwriters singing about their boyfriends. if they change the subject matter to atoms, galaxies, activism, nerdy math beat editing or anything else than being performers singing about their loved ones they get criticized : journalists feel there is just something missing... as if our only lingo is emo," she wrote.
