Florence Welch Hotel Fire

 Florence Welch Hotel Fire, Florence Welch recently said that she once got so drunk that she set fire to her hotel room. The Florence + the Machine frontwoman told Q Magazine that she got wasted off of seventeen dirty martinis and left a tea light burning in the room, which started the fire that she slept through.

"I think I must have had about seventeen dirty martinis," she said. "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. 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."

She noted that the drinks probably cost more than the damage, 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 bloody 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."
