Chris Martin chatted with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe last week, and now even more of his interview has hit the web. Martin talks about his band's new album, but who cares about Coldplay when he's dishing the dirt on Gwynnie?!
"I wouldn't use the word breakdown," he said of their sudden split. "This was more a realization about trying to grow up basically… 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."
Wait ... doesn't that sound like he's taking the blame here?!
Martin continued, "What changed for me was, I don't want to go through life being scared of it, being scared of love, being scared of rejection, being scared of failure… 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 Coldplay frontman concluded, "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."
Wonder what prompted him to say this? Is this an attempt to get his estranged wife back or is he just trying to shift the focus from her to him?
