Coldplay’s Chris Martin: ‘Take That made me think I was gay’

Martin jokes about his teenage confusion while presenting Gary Barlow with an award

Coldplay‘s Chris Martin joked yesterday (October 24) that Take That made him question his sexuality.

The singer, who was presenting Take That mainman Gary Barlow with an award at the Q Awards, opened up about his love of U2 and Take That as a teenager, reports The Sun.

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.
