Icelandic pop star Bjork has mastered the art of staying in hotels around the world, and she can even cook porridge on the floor.

The eccentric singer claims to have spent half her life since she was 18 in hotel rooms, and she's found a way to make a home out of anywhere she's staying.

She says, "You know how to rinse your clothes before you go to bed, and they're clean when you wake up.

"I learned how to cook porridge every morning on the hotel room floor with a small stove."

And now Bjork takes all her favourite belongings from home with her when she heads out on tour.

She adds, "(I take) five suitcases - all my favourite books and vases."
