I've been reading the comments below and I have to agree; I, too, thought she was considerably shorter. The contribution from Sabrina from Iceland, however, who has very interestingly met the star, bears out that she really is 5ft4 though.
A few years ago, I found out that Bjork was the lead in a Lars Von Trier film called 'Dancer in the Dark', about a woman who is sadly losing her sight. I'd recommend it to anyone who has an interest in Bjork! It was good to find that she has more strings to her bow other than singing, though she does sing in the film!
Finally, why do we all seem to mispronounce her name? I don't know how it should sound like to this day! This has given rise to the odd joke or two, but my favourite has to be the one from 'Emmerdale', wherein a piggy who is rescued from the slaughterhouse by a couple of comical and lovable male characters, is named Pjork (and another Kevin Bacon!). Very funny!

Serious? 5'4! Gosh, I would've guessed much lower. In hindsight, this actually makes sense - while she often looks petite on her own, people of average height don't dwarf her.

i'm 1 foot taller MMMUHAHAHAHA 6'4 :D
well it's true 5'4 is correct for this little beauty.

I'm from Iceland. I've met Björk many times. I can confirm that she's 5'4". She may seem so small, it's because of her very slender frame.

Okay Rob, I'm here in a hotel room in Atlanta waiting on some friends, on my trusty labtop on this site! I've even turned people onto this site. I should get paid for free advertisment! :-) Anyway, I saw Bjork in concert in '01 and was suprised at how 'tall' she was. I remember reading an article where the writer described her as being doll-like and diminutive yet in reality, she's average height for a female. (In the US that is) With heels on, she's around the same height as her current husband, Matthew Barney and when she was with Tricky, who is admittedly 5'8", she wasn't too much shorter. She comes across as being small and fairylike but she's really not.
