Icelandic pop star Bjork has ruled out moving into politics.

The singer has been an active campaigner for numerous causes over the years, from backing independence for regions such as Kosovo and Tibet to being the driving force behind a number of environmental initiatives in her home country.

However, the It's Oh So Quiet star is adamant she has no plans to give up her music career to run for office.

She tells Britain's The Observer Magazine, "At the moment I get to write songs as much as I want. Sometimes I go to (political) meetings, and that's important, but they do drive me kind of nuts. I would not want to increase meetings or decrease the music making."
