Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine is oft celebrated for her flame-hued locks. However, she was pretty close to being known for something literally fiery! While in New York City recently, Flo nearly burned the Bowery Hotel to ground.

According to the songstress, she had consumed a bunch of dirty martinis during a star-studded booze fest with artists like Kanye West. In her drunken state, Welch not only lost her phone, chipped a tooth and ripped her dress, but she left a candle burning, the latter of which could have reduced the structure to a pile of cinder and burning ash. Rough night, Flo?

Welch told Q (via Spinner), “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.” Yikes. Sounds like Flo averted disaster!

Eh, not quite. The bill from her night of boozing was astronomical, thanks to the all those drinks she tossed back with other pop stars, like Yeezy. She said, “Kanye West, Lykke Li, me, the doormen, most of Lower Manhattan, whoever, drinking dirty martinis and what have you.”
