Florence Welch on theatrics: 'Living in this creation kept me safe'
Songstress Florence Welch has revealed to the Rolling Stone that while she wouldn't change anything about her past, she would like to reassure her younger self that everything would turn out alright.
Speaking to the magazine about the advice she would give herself if she could go back, she confessed that her style was a little unusual but really it helped her to get through the experience of fame:
"There are certain sartorial choices I would not make, in hindsight. I had black lipstick. I was wearing capes stapled to me. I got famous when I was about 21. It was totally thrilling and also completely terrifying."
"You're scared and want something to shield you, so you think you've got to have more hair, more makeup. To live in this creation, in this kind of magical alternate universe, kept me safe. But I wouldn't take any of that back. I would just say to that person, "It's going to be OK."
