After watching what could reasonably be considered a star-making performance at the 2010 MTV VMAs, everybody wants to know a little bit more about Florence + The Machine frontwoman Florence Welch. Lucky for everybody we have this exclusive Buzzworthy interview with the “Dog Days Are Over” singer, right here.

In this chat, Florence talks about her show-stopping performance of “Dog Days Are Over” at the VMAs. According to the Brit vocalist, her live turn at the award show was about “capturing the essence” of the “Dog Days Are Over” video. Florence jokingly laments not being able to have people explode onstage and calls the performance “Busby Berkeley on acid.”

Though she looked like a pro onstage, Florence was nervous when it came to interacting with her celebrity peers. She adorably recounts getting tongue tied around the likes of Drake and Nicki Minaj, and recounts how Lady Gaga asked her if she was nervous about performing. She also reveals one of the consequences of hugging Gaga at the VMAs: meat dress grease!
