“This is a woman who doesn’t like to be treated differently, who chooses the spotlight not for reasons of ego, but as a means of expression.”
- Vassi Chamberlain on Florence Welch (Bazaar’s Senior Contributing Editor)

Being heartbroken is really intoxicating… it’s like, you’ve been so hurt that you feel like nothing else can touch you. You feel almost invincable; it’s a kind of terrible freedom. You know that stage where where you don’t care about yourself anymore? I was just like, I’m going to go out and I don’t care what happens to me. You feel very broken. You can go out and not come home for three days and not have to call anyone because you feel like you don’t have anyone to answer to, because you’re not in the relationship anymore and there’s nothing to ground you. - Florence Welch
I spent my 16th birthday high as a kite, jumping out of a tree topless in my local park just because it felt amazing hitting the ground.
