Says Florence to the Sunday Times: "We were talking afterwards and he was telling me about this whole underwater theme for his show and said: 'Wouldn't it be amazing if you came down from the ceiling, floating, at my show?' Then we totally brainstormed the whole thing and, to be honest, I didn't really know what he was talking about ... The next day, we got a call from his people and that was it. He's one of those people who thinks things into being." Telekinesis would explain a lot.
