Washington: Florence Welch has revealed that she craved for a more simple life during her childhood.
The ‘Florence and the Machine’ singer’s parents divorced when she was young and she believed the trouble between them made her long for a simplistic lifestyle.
“I was longing for a puritanical lifestyle as a kid,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling Britain’s Vogue magazine.
“I must have sensed some kind of ruction between my parents, because I was really longing to live in a log cabin, read the bible and drink fresh milk.”
Florence believes that she is now trying to relive childhood because she was ‘scared’ of so many things while growing up.
“For a lot of performers, you’re looking to get to that sense of childhood freedom and imagination.”
“But I was really a scared kid. I think in a sense, I’m having a renaissance of childhood. I’m embracing the world, instead of being followed by nightmares all the time,” she added.
