Florence Welch reveals battle to be known for music, not personality
Florence Welch has revealed the battle she endured to be know for her music, not her personality.
The Florence + The Machine star broke into the mainstream after winning the Critics' Choice award at the 2009 BRIT Awards.
However, speaking to Stylist magazine, Welch admitted that she "fought hard" to ensure that she was known more for her music than things like her "character, background and hair". She said:
"When I first started, especially because I got the Critics' Choice before I'd released an album, there was a lot scrutiny on what my character was, what my background was, what colour my hair was. I fought quite hard for the music to overtake the personality aspect."
She added: "I didn't want to become a personality, I wanted to be a musician, but because I didn't have an album to stand by yet it was hard for people to see that. But now, two albums in, I'm happy with things."
