"It’s really like a boys’ club."

Bjork has called out the music press, claiming that it is a "boy's club".

The Icelandic singer made the comments while talking at the opening event of the Bjork Digital exhibition in Australia.

Bjork Digital is designed as an extension of Vulnicura, and is set to feature some fully immersive, 360 degree visuals.

Speaking at the event, Bjork commented: "The fact I’m a woman and I can do what I do, it’s kind of unique, really. I’ve been really lucky... But I have been hitting walls. What’s really macho, for example, is music journalism. It’s really like a boys’ club. They like music that is… well, a lot of it is for boys."

Bjork then extended her remarks, using her experiences acting in Lars Vaon Trier’s 2000 musical Dancer In The Dark to hone in on the female experience within the broader creative industries.

The singer commented: "I couldn’t believe what it’s like for actresses. It’s just a nightmare how they’re treated. They have so little say in their career or roles they play as they get older. Guys can get older, but not women."
