Speaking about who his favourite bands were when growing up, Martin said they were: “U2 and five handsome, strapping men from Stoke and Manchester. I’m not afraid to admit it, they made me ask the question ‘Am I gay?'”
U2 drummer Larry Mullen Jnr later joked that the singer had been right to question his sexuality, saying: “Chris Martin, I have the answer for you — you are gay.”
Coldplay released their new album ‘Mylo Xyloto’ yesterday (October 24). You can watch a video interview of the band talking about the record by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking. They tour the UK in December, playing three arena shows.
