    Florence Welch is by far one the greatest female artists to date, but I can’t help but wonder by this interview she gave, that perhaps she may or may not have Asperger Syndrome? Body language etc. ❤️

    I adore Florence; she’s just such a fascinating person. Also, props to the interviewer! She comes off genuinely interested in their discussion, and wisely stays quiet when receiving answers, allowing the interviewee to divulge more information we might not have heard otherwise.

    I LOVE HER! Since that day "Dog Days Over" was coming out. I'm so depressiv that she was in vienna and I didn't had the money as trainee and since then I hope she is coming again and I'm saving my money for her concert and I wanna buy EVERYTHING from her merchandise. I love all her songs but I'm singing my favorite song everytime I can in my boring life. "Breath of Life" was the song what hit me like an arrow from Armor. She inspired me to life my life and not be reserved only for working but to make and follow my own destiny. I owe her alot. 🤩😍☺️

    Florence is so classically beautiful, and not even in a hipster way. You wouldn't think she's an older Millennial born in 1986, she's an old soul and that's awesome. It's not that she looks older or anything, she just looks like a grown ass woman and not a teenager like RiRi still does

    I like that she discovered that you actually don’t require drink, drugs, hedonism etc. to come through creatively. She can do it without those elements and what an amazing demonstration of such talent - in the pure.
