Florence Welch free on stage
Florence Welch experiences ''freedom'' when she's on stage, as no one can tell her what to do.

Florence Welch experiences ''freedom'' when she's on stage.

The Florence + the Machine singer enjoys performing at her shows because she is on her own and fells no pressure from anyone telling her what to do.

She said: ''When I'm on stage, no one can ask me to do anything. Even on the way to the stage, there's still someone who wants an interview, or people taking my picture. Sometimes it's like, 'Get me onto the stage.' It's like freedom.''

The 'Never Let Me Go' hitmaker admits she sometimes struggles to cope with the pressures of fame and often finds herself lonely.

Speaking about the by-products of her success, she said: ''It's not that I'm not enjoying them, it's just the scale of them. It's a strange process. When you're talking about yourself, the whole idea is quite isolating. There's no escape from yourself. Being so introspective, it's not actually one of my happiest places. I really love talking about work and my experiences but I don't like being too inside my head.''
