Coldplay’s Chris Martin has admitted he sometimes feels like the whole world hates his band. Poor Chris. He told Spin magazine: “Maybe it’s because I’m English, but in terms of how people perceive us I only pick up on the negative side of it. I always feel like the big bad outside world just fucking hates us”.

No Chris, it’s not that the whole world hates you. True, half the world find your music mind numbingly tedious, but scroll back up to that story about how many records you’ve just sold, the other half of the planet clearly loves your shit. Yin and Yang and all that. I mean look, we’re always dissing your music, but our key columnist just wrote about how you’re fucking ace.
