Karen Dreijer Accepts Award, Puts Gaga in Her Place
Fever Ray and The Knife's Karen Dreijer shows just how you accept an award and freak people out
Karen Dreijer is one half of the Swedish sibling duo The Knife and the sole proprietor behind Fever Ray. She is a very talented musician who is not afraid to stretch the boundaries of what's weird and rather odd. Her acceptance speech last week at the P3 Guld Awards -- an award won by Fever Ray -- she gave a speech that is indiciative of just how left-of-center and different she really is. Revel in her amazing sensiblity -- including video evidence -- after the jump.
You see that, Lady Gaga and Ke$ha? That is how you freak people out while endearing yourself to them. The thing about Karen Dreijer is that she's actually talented and critically acclaimed -- much unlike those other two talentless clowns. Maybe Lady Gaga can dance a little, but her bullshit outfits overshadow any singing talent she might have -- and I think she likes it like that. Ke$ha is just a total hack and wouldn't have a career if it wasn't for Gaga.
Just take a listen of The Knife's "Heartbeats" and you be the judge. Trust me when I say Karen Dreijer is talented, and she doesn't have to sing about paparazzos or clocks to be so.
