Very few shows can claim to still be at the top of their game seven seasons in. Hell, even fewer shows even make it to Season 7! UNHhhh is now one of the lucky few to make it this far, and the show somehow still packs more unhinged gay chaos into each 13-minute episode than any other show on the planet. Even as hosts Katya and Trixie Mattel expand their separate and joint pop culture empires, UNHhhh remains the rock-solid foundation upon which these queens have placed their thrones. The new season of UNHhhh — new episodes on WOW Presents Plus...

'The Northman' director Robert Eggers reveals how he got Björk back into acting and convinced Ethan Hawke to bark like a dog for the Viking epic
The director also told Insider how Anya Taylor-Joy's character had to be changed due to shooting during the pandemic.
We never thought we would ever see Björk in a film ever again. While her performance in Lars von Trier's 2000 musical "Dancer in the Dark" is spellbinding, her experience on the film was anything but that. Von Trier has rarely received the greatest word of mouth in how he treats the people he works with, and back in a 2017 Facebook post, Björk accused him (not by name but by nationality) of sexually harassing her during the making of that movie. After winning the Best Actress prize at the Cannes Film Festival, she said the movie would be her "first and last" (though it was really her second film, after 1990's "The Juniper Tree"). After all, she is a musician first and foremost, and Lars Von Trier, nor any other film director for that matter, was not going to sully that.
There are few musicians working today with the same knack for telling stories through clothes as Björk. The legendary Icelandic singer, songwriter and producer has always worked with the best in high fashion to build her rich visual worlds, whether through her regular collaborations with Hussein Chalayan and Alexander McQueen at the beginning of her career – who can forget the kimono-inspired McQueen gown she wore on the cover of her 1997 album Homogenic? – or her more recent partnerships with the likes of Bernhard Willhelm and Iris van Herpen.

Robert Eggers’ Viking revenge epic The Northman hits theaters next Friday (April 22), and, today, Focus Features has released a new clip from the film centering on Björk’s character, the Seeress.

Ahead of its release later this month, Focus Features has just released several new character posters for their new film, The Northman. The new posters give us a look into the all-star cast of the new historical epic, which is based on the legend of Amleth, a Medieval Scandinavian story that is said to have inspired Hamlet, perhaps one of the most well-known dramas of all time.
"Thanks to South by Southwest, I have a job," Michelle Zauner said Saturday at the final keynote of the Austin conference's 2022 edition. Zauner, a Eugene, Oregon, native, credits the music festival for helping her get signed to a label and a booking agent back in 2016. The feeling is no doubt mutual, because she's the kind of creative figure that SXSW loves.
Next month on April 22, 2022 Focus Features will premiere the highly anticipated new Viking adventure The Northman starring Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman, Claes Bang, Anya Taylor-Joy, Ethan Hawke, Björk, and Willem Dafoe. The epic historical film has been directed by Robert Eggers, co-written by Eggers and Sjón.
Miami New Times
This week, FTX Arena hosts back-to-back-to-back shows by Dua Lipa, Tool, and Farruko, making the arena the place to be for music. Over at the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, Icelandic singer Björk makes her live Miami debut. And the Love Burn brings its Burning Man-style party to Virginia Key Beach Park.
It’s been more than two decades since Björk’s once-maligned, now-revered Marjan Pejoski “swan dress” became the talk of the 73rd Academy Awards red carpet, and since then her way-left-of-center proclivities have become more and more commonplace. Kanye West wearing a mask while performing the seismic Yeezus Tour? Lady Gaga’s meat outfit? Katy Perry’s singing, phallic mushrooms during her Vegas residency and latest “SNL” performance? All seem directly sprung from the Icelandic singer’s performance art universe. But how can Björk herself grow and innovate now that pop culture has caught up? The answer, made clear in her lush stage piece “Cornucopia,” is...
