Florence And The Machine - Welch Finds Graveyards 'Peaceful'

FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE frontwoman FLORENCE WELCH finds peace in an unusual resting place when she needs to escape the limelight - the singer sneaks into graveyards.
The flame-haired star admits she's had an "odd" fascination with spirits, vampires and witches since she was a kid.
As a youngster she would draw crosses on her bed to ward off evil spirits and once even started her own coven.
And Welch hasn't grown out of her macabre obsessions - she still sneaks into graveyards to "commune with spirits".
She tells Rolling Stone magazine, "Places that are supposed to be scary I just find really peaceful."
