Florence Welch has a ''girl crush'' on rapper MIA.

The Florence + The Machine singer has been dating events organiser James Nesbitt after splitting with her long-term boyfriend.

But she is attracted to the woman who flipped her middle finger and swore into the camera during her Super Bowl half-time performance in February.

She told the Radio Times: ''I have a massive girl crush on MIA - her video for 'Bad Girls' is the best music video I've ever seen.''

The 25-year-old musician also said she like American male rapper A$AP Rocky.

She continued: ''He's got this mouth full of gold teeth and he's really beautiful. He's so cool.''

Florence also admitted that she found touring difficult, and that ''night times are really hard''.

She added: ''You miss actual intimacy and home and connection. My house is like a graveyard of suitcases. I'm sick of it. They haunt me.''

The red-head also made reference to her beauty, claiming that she thinks she looks naturally aggressive when she is not trying to smile.

She said of her distinctive looks: ''My normal face, if I'm not being animated or talking, if I'm just sitting, I look really angry.''
