Chris Martin: I have issues

Apr 28 2014, 1:22am CDT | by

Chris Martin has suggested his own "issues" were responsible for the breakdown of his marriage.

The Coldplay frontman - who announced last month he and wife Gwyneth Paltrow were separating after 10 years of marriage - admits he has been a "mess" for some time because of his struggle to accept the good things in his life.

Asked if his marriage problems have inspired Coldplay's new album 'Ghost Stories', he said: "I wouldn't use the word breakdown, this was more a realization about trying to grow up basically. Like I said, if you can't open yourself up, you can't appreciate the wonder inside. So you can be with someone very wonderful, but because of your own issues you cannot let that be celebrated in the right way....

"About two years ago I was a mess really because I can't enjoy the thing that we are good at and I can't enjoy the great things around me because I'm burdened by this - I've got to not blame anyone else and make some changes."

The 'Magic' hitmaker - who has children Apple, nine, and Moses, eight, with Gwyneth - also admitted he had found it difficult to "let love in".

Speaking to DJ Zayn Lowe, he said: "Up to a certain point in my life I wasn't completely vulnerable and it caused some problems. If you don't let love really in then you can't really give it back. So what 'Ghost Stories' means to me is like you've got to open yourself up to love and if you really do, of course it will be painful at times, but then it will be great at some point."

But the 'Fix You' singer thinks it is important to face "challenges" in life head on and wasn't afraid to be honest about his personal woes in his new album.

He added: "I think in life everyone needs to be broken in some way... I think everyone in their life goes through challenges, whether it's love or money, kids, or illness... You have to really not run away from that stuff. Life throws these colorful challenges at you ... what we decided to do on 'Ghost Stories' was to really be honest about it and say, this is what's been happening."

The full hour-long interview with Chris will be broadcast tonight (04.28.14) at 8pm on Zayn's BBC Radio 1 show.

Coldplay Take on Body Acceptance, Ballet in ‘True Love’ Video: Watch

Aug 22 2014 2:21pm CDT | Source: Mix 96-5

By Courtney E. Smith In all things Coldplay, there is sincerity. That truism holds for the band’s latest video, “True Love.” The clip, directed by Jonas Åkerlund and starring the band’s singer Chris Martin alongside actress Jessica Lucas, follows two people falling into what we assume is true love — or even if it’s love of commonality, they are certainly presented as peas in a pod. You see, both are wearing balloon body ...

Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Martin love to eat: They ‘pig out & work it off’

Aug 22 2014 9:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I’ve resigned myself to the thought of Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin in a relationship. I’m not thrilled about it. It seems like a temporary thing. Jennifer is probably enamored at the thought of dating a global phenom who’s as famous as she is. People fawn all over her all the time, and now she’s fawning over someone else. I get the impression that Nick Hoult was always fading into the background of their relationshi ...

Splash News It’s no secret that celebs decide on unique and, well, quite interesting names for their newborn babies. And let’s be real—it’s not often that a celeb baby is named Bella or John. These cute kiddies are usually given monikers that you’ve never even heard of. Take North West for example.
