Frida Björk Ingvarsdottir

She’s a child of nature but not naïve, even if she pretends to be, said Frida Björk Ingvarsdottir, a newspaper columnist, who is not related.

She’s rebellious. She can be obnoxious. But that’s a common trait in Icelandics. You should see us drunk. She’s a strong woman, and I find that very positive.

She’s not globalized, like Britney Spears or the Spice Girls, only interested in what sells. She’s stubborn, and she stays who she is.
