Icelandic singer Bjork credits the Iraq war with inspiring her to become a
spokesperson for people who lack interest in politics.
The IT'S OH SO QUIET star's new-found interest in politics was prompted by
America's invasion of Iraq in 2003, when she discovered how many people were
willing to discuss world affairs with her.
She says, "I don't follow the news that much, but suddenly I was looking
online every day, just to see what was going on in Iraq.
"I don't know about you, but whatever I was doing, having dinner with
music people to plumbers, everyone was talking about the war and how they
disagreed with it, or agreed with it, but everyone has a position.
"So although it has been destructive and disastrous, the good thing is
that people actually want to have a say.
"I'm not going to talk like I know about politics, because I'm a total
amateur, but maybe I can be a spokesperson for people who aren't normally
interested in politics."
