Bjork, ‘Drag Race’ Stan, Reacts to Katya’s Impression of Her
When celebrities stan for their stans: Bjork edition.
On Monday, September 5, the Icelandic music legend participated in a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" (AMA), where fans were encouraged to post their burning questions in the hope that the "Army of Me" singer would answer personally. And boy, did she ever!
From answering questions about fan culture across the world to sharing stories about touring, Bjork really opened up—but it was one question about RuPaul's Drag Race, of all things, that truly left its mark on the Internet.
Bjork, who outed herself as a Drag Race fan in an interview with The Guardian on September 2, was asked if she had seen the recent "Snatch Game" episode of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars where Katya Zamolodchikova performs an impression of the musician. Bjork gushed about the over-the-top impersonation in response.
"YESSSSSSSS i absolutely loved it," she responded. "especially when [Katya] started humming to herself, ha ha ha."
While she artist admitted that "selfishly [she] was hoping for a more current version, like a Vulnicura" impression, the All Stars contestant won her over with her wacky antics.
"...she nailed the feminist activist tribal volta… [Imitation is the] sincerest form of flattery," Bjork concluded.
Meanwhile, Katya is beside herself after getting noticed by the pop star, tweeting, "Mother, musical legends are enjoying my impersonation of them again..."
The Drag Race diva first paid homage to Bjork in a 2015 Season 7 episode where, during a challenge, she recreated the singer's infamous red carpet swan dress using only paper.
As for Bjork, the singer told The Guardian that she was introduced to RuPaul's Drag Race while visiting Costa Rica back in 2009, and now she watches it religiously with her daughter.
"It’s uplifting how [RuPaul] builds up the queens; he gives them tough love and they blossom throughout the series. It’s really life-affirming," she explained to the site. "But on top of everything else it’s obviously hilarious. I know all the queens now by name; we quote it left, right and center."
