Last week during a concert in Shanghai, Bjork ended her performance of “Declare Independence” with a call of “Tibet, Tibet”; the Chinese ministry of culture was not pleased with Bjork’s outburst, saying that the song was “unapproved” and putting a statement on its Web site that says “Any attempt to separate Tibet from China will definitely be opposed by the Chinese people and all righteous men across the world.” The government has said that it will now look closer at artists who are planning on playing China so as to “prevent similar cases from happening in the future.” [Variety / Photo: AP]
