"Icelandic television made a KUKL special in 1986, it was re-broadcast on 15.4.94. This program supposedly created some uproar in Iceland over Björk's naked, very pregnant belly. A short snip was shown on a Björk special on Norwegian TV show "U" (KUKL doing 'Söngull') 8.12.93."

"This appearance famously depicted a very pregnant Björk flailing about the stage with armpits unshaven and bare belly exposed. Björk's performance sparked a minor controversy. An elderly woman who happened to be watching reportedly suffered a heart attack as a result; a few other wrote angry letters to the local newspaper, complaining that there was something inherently distasteful about an uncovered pregnant stomach. To the rest of the nation, it was a non-event. That live television appearance, bulging belly and all, was to be KUKL's swansong."

"Björk discovered she was pregnant with Þór's child.
She, being a mere teenager herself, considered not keeping it, even though she was ecstatic by the doctor's message - but she let her female intuition rule and decided to keep it after all.

That was no hinder for KUKL though. Björk carried on as usual, and being 7 months pregnant, playing live on the television with her big and healthy stomach sticking out was enough to give an old lady a heart-attack! She survived and sued Björk, basing her case on that it was ugly to be pregnant!

Björk claims that if you think such a natural and beautiful thing is ugly, you have only yourself to blame for getting a heart-attack."

Quote from Björk: "I shaved my eyebrows, I was very pregnant and I exposed my belly on a TV show, performing in my band KUKL, a jazz punk thing. One woman had a heart attack while she was watching and sued me. Fortunately, she lost!"
