Coldplay's Chris Martin pimps out bassist Guy Berryman for £1 million
The frontman wants to sell a night with the bassist for charity
This week the 'Paradise' group auctioned off three original pieces of the artwork, created by British artist Paris, which featured on their latest album 'Mylo Xyloto' in aid of Kid Company – a charity who help vulnerable inner-city children.
However, Chris Martin has said the band have more chance of making a million pounds for the charity by auctioning off a romantic evening with Coldplay bassist Guy Berryman. "A date with our bass player would be worth a million or more, specifically a night with our bass player," Martin told The Sun.
You know the film Indecent Proposal? For next year's fundraiser we're thinking of something like that.
This isn't the first time Martin has be so out-spoken about Berryman's good looks. "My entire life is spent trying to push him forward at photoshoots," he said. "He's our packaging, he's a handsome bastard. None of us pretend that if he wasn't in the band we'd be as popular. He's responsible for all our calendar sales."
Meanwhile, Coldplay have begun work on their next album, dismissing reports that they would take a minimum of three years away from the music scene. Chris Martin had previously suggested the band would be going on a break, telling an audience in Australia recently that the group would be away for three years.
