Drunk And Disorderly! Florence Welch Sets Fire To Hotel Room

31 January 2012

British singer Florence Welch, of Florence and The Machine as revealed that in a nightmare of a night she got so drunk she ripped her designer dress, chipped a tooth and set fire to her hotel room!

How rock and roll of the English rose!

Florence revealed that she was in New York to perform an acoustic gig and that afterwards she hit the bottle in her dressing room with rapper Kanye West and Swedish performer Lykke Li!

Welch consumed so much alcohol on the night that she ripped her dress, lost her phone and chipped a tooth, before setting her hotel room on fire after passing out and forgetting to put out a candle she had lit.

The singer revealed all the gory details when she told Britain's Q magazine, "I think I must have had about 17 Dirty Martinis. I lost my phone and ripped my dress very badly. I accidentally set fire to The Bowery Hotel because I'd left a cinnamon tea light burning."

She went on to add, "I came back to the hotel, passed out in my ripped dress - no phone, chipped tooth - came round and there was black stuff all over the wall, my book had melted on the bedside table and there was a bucket of water on the floor. Actually the last scene you want to wake up to with a hangover. Half the room was singed."

Florence also confirmed that aside from the damage to her pride, her bank balance also suffered saying, "My American publicist was like, 'Ah yes, there was a very big bill on my credit card.' But the fire damage was only a couple of hundred. The big bill was the bl**dy dressing room drinks bill. Kanye West, Lykke Li, me, the doormen, most of Lower Manhattan, whoever, drinking Dirty Martinis and what have you. (The amount is) undisclosed."
