Icelandic songstress Bjork first struck back at the overbearing press in 1996 after a long flight to Thailand with her then 10-year-old son, Sindri. When Julie Kaufman, a reporter for a cable TV news station, approached Bjork’s son and said, “Welcome to Bangkok!” Bjork pounced on the woman, slapped her repeatedly and knocked her to the ground. In early 2008, history repeated itself when another horde of reporters and photographers crowded around the singer as she landed at New Zealand’s Auckland International Airport. Glenn Jeffrey, a photographer for the New Zealand Herald, snapped a few frames of Bjork and then turned to walk away—but not before the chanteuse ripped the back of his shirt in half, knocking herself down in the process. Bjork later apologized for both attacks and, seemingly, the paparazzi have learned their lesson.
