Florence + The Machine: 'Partying with Kanye West costs more than burning down a hotel' - Q308 preview
Florence + The Machine's Florence Welch has told Q that keeping up with music's great and good is actually more expensive than if you burn down a hotel room.
Speaking in an exclusive Q cover story interview in our new issue - Q308 - which is out now, the singer revealed all about a party she inadvertently threw in a New York hotel.
"We had this room at the top of the building [The Standard Hotel] and it was supposed to be just us but all these other people were there. Kanye West was there. Lykke Li... I was in the bath tub fully clothed. By the end of the night I had lost my phone, obviously... this is the craziest thing that happened throughout a year of touring," Welch tells Q in the interview.
And remarkably a few drinks with Kanye West is more expensive then accidentally setting fire to a plush hotel room:
"I accidentally set fire to The Bowery Hotel because I'd left a cinnamon tea light burning... but that impromptu party cost me a lot more than the cost of setting fire to my hotel room."
