Righteous flames in Germany

Twenty-two year-old pop phenomenon Florence has been left in a pickle in Germany after her instruments were destroyed in a trailer fire. The Sun says that Florence was nonplussed by the fire, and in fact seeks to use the event in her ever-groundbreaking musical art. "You could hear the harp's strings ping in the fire. Strange sound. We recorded it and I want to use it in a song," she said. Reports that Rammstein are being investigated as the source of the blaze are as yet unconfirmed.
