Interview: Iceland’s Eurovision Icon Hera Björk On ‘Scared of Heights’, Tackling Fears & Love from the LGBTQ+ Community

The Queen is back! Hera Björk had that special something in Oslo with her anthem Je Ne Sais Quoi in 2010 and now after storming to victory in Iceland’s Söngvakeppnin, Hera returns to the Eurovision Song Contest this year. Hera brings Scared of Heights, a euphoric pop delight packed with incredible vocals and addictive europop production, to Malmö. The Icelandic pop diva caught up with editor Andrew to discuss a packed array of topics.

Hera delved into the poignant meaning behind Scared of Heights, how she hopes Eurovision will broaden the conversation around current global events, and how she hopes the contest can encourage kindness and diversity.

The Je Ne Sais Quoi hitmaker shared her mutually reciprocated love for the LGBTQ+ community, the pop divas that have shaped her life, and the childhood experience that saw her magnetically drawn to the world of Eurovision.
