Is Coldplay's New Music Video, "Magic," About Chris Martin's Split With Gwyneth Paltrow?

Apr 8, 2014 12:02 PM

Is art imitating life in Coldplay's new video?!

In the band's new music video, "Magic," recently separated Chris Martin plays a lovestruck magician’s assistant who sings about a "broken" relationship. Could the lanky Brit be talking about his failed relationship with Gwyneth Paltrow? We think so!

In the black and white video, directed by Jonas Akerlund, a magician's assistant (played by Martin) in a traveling circus becomes enamored with his beautiful mentor, played by Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon star Zhang Ziyi, but who is being abused by her husband (also played by Martin). The magician's assistant must use his magical powers to win her over and stop her cruel husband.

The lyrics, “Call it magic/Call it true/Call it magic/When I’m with you/And I just got broken/Broken into two,” reference a man getting out of a failed relationship, leading fans to wonder if the crooner is lamenting publicly over the high-profile breakup.

The song is the first single from Coldplay's upcoming album, Ghost Stories, which is to be released next month.

Chris Martin Blasts Report He Had An Affair With SNL Employee

Apr 7, 2014 09:50 AM


The gossip is beginning!

Chris Martin is shooting down rumors that he had an affair with an SNL assistant after meeting her during a performance on the late night show in 2011, when he was still with wife Gwyneth Paltrow.

"He had an affair with a woman who was backstage and was part of an entourage. Everyone was talking about it because he was openly flirting with her at one of the show after parties," a source tells Page Six.

The Coldplay frontman maintains there's no shred of truth to the report!

"This is completely untrue, we totally deny it," a rep for Martin said in a statement.

The A-list couple allegedly had an "open" marriage and the Oscar winner "didn't care" if her husband had dalliances with other woman, according to People, so even if this whole story is true, it doesn't exactly make him a cheater!

Chris Martin's Father Breaks Silence On His Son's Split With Gywneth Paltrow: "It Is Sad And Upsetting"

Mar 28, 2014 09:02 AM


Chris Martin's father has just opened up his son's high profile split with wife Gwyneth Paltrow.

Anthony Martin says that he feels great sadness over the "conscious uncoupling" of the no-longer couple, especially in regards to his grand kids Apple and Moses.

"It is sad and upsetting but they are still great mates," said the former magistrate about the couple, who announced their break up via GOOP on Tuesday.

"If you are married you know you have good days and bad days. But it is all very amicable between them."

The 73-year-old refused to comment on infidelity claims alleged on both parties. However the grandfather said, "It is sad because there are our grandchildren."

When the publication asked about Gywneth's much buzzed-about-term, "conscious uncoupling," the 73-year-old laughed and then brushed it off, saying, "It's all in the statement."

And quite a statement it was!

'It seems to have a positivity that's engaging, so I'm really honored to be here," he gushes about the singing competition in the clip.

The British singer seems to have some valuable advice for the hopefuls, too!

"You need to bring out your Mick Jagger. That's why he's the best frontman in the world. The more that you feel you're being sung to, the more that will work," he tells Shelton's contestants Audra McLaughlin and Megan Ruger.

We're thrilled to see him stepping out of the Goop queen's shadow!

Jay Z, Chris Martin, Timbaland Take London’s Tube To His O2 Arena Concert

Oct 13, 2013 12:30 PM



Jay Z evidently loves using public transport.

Jay, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, producer Timbaland, manager Ty Ty and Atlanta Records executive Michael Kyser were spotted travelling on London’s Tube on Saturday en route to the O2 arena for Jay Z's concert -- part of his sold-out Magna Carta Holy Grail Tour.

The music legends arrived at the Waterloo train station to travel underground to the show, where Chris and Timbaland joined Hova on stage to perform "Ain't No Love (Heart of the City)."

Shawn Carter did the exact same thing last year when he boarded the R train in New York City to his concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. It's refreshing to see a down-to-Earth multi-millionaire.

He's got a license to drive!

Coldplay singer Chris Martin took a driving test in his Jeep Sahara AND on his infamous white Vespa at the Santa Monica Department of Motor Vehicles Wednesday morning. And it looks like he aced both tests!

Just yesterday, wife Gwyneth Paltrow went to the DMV to renew her driver's license and also take her motorcycle license test -- and the Oscar winner passed, too!

Since relocating to LA, Gwyneth and Chris, have been taking their children Apple and Moses to their new Bel Air school on Vespas. While most kids at ritzy Los Angeles private schools are driven in blinged-out SUVs and chauffeur-driven Range Rovers, these tykes have been rolling to school in style, on the funky retro scooters.

Vespas with kids on Sunset Blvd? Hey, at least they aren't riding around on Harleys!

Chris Martin And Gwyneth Paltrow Continues To Drive Dangerously With Kids On Vespas

Sep 10, 2013 12:17 PM

Do Gwyneth and Chris have a death wish or something?! Just one day after Gwyneth Paltrow was filmed cutting off a school bus while on her Vespa in Los Angeles, hubby Chris Martin was photographed scooting in front of a public bus on Tuesday -- and shockingly, both times the parents had their Apple and Moses in tow!

While Gwyneth made Monday's risky move with 9-year-old Apple riding on her Vespa, Chris rode solo on Tuesday as the kids and Gwyneth followed along while en route to their new Los Angeles school. What are you doing?! Can't you two just take your kids to school in a chauffeured limo like normal celebrities?!

Call us crazy (and by crazy we mean cautious and thinking about the well being and safety of children), but we don't think the kids should be riding on the back of Vespas in the first place -- let alone when their parents are making such daredevil moves. And to add insult to (what we hope is not injury), the Paltrow/Martins scooter-tastic trip to Apple and Moses' new school is a long and dangerous one from the couple's Brentwood home. The route that the Coldplay singer and his Oscar-winning wife take runs along Sunset Blvd, (one of the busiest streets in Los Angeles) over the 405 freeway (the busiest freeway in the world) and through the woods. Okay fine, the metaphorical woods but you get our drift -- it's not a quick jaunt.

Look you two skinny blonde famous people, we get Sons of Anarchy is a rad show -- but we really think that y'all should cool your jets. Maybe just watch the show on DVD or something …
