Chris Martin: ‘Beyonce Needs Attention’

Monday, October 17, 2011

CHRIS Martin thinks Beyonce Knowles “needs” more attention than her male counterparts.

The Coldplay frontman — who is married to singer-and-actress Gwyneth Paltrow — thinks female stars such as the ‘Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it)’ hitmaker and Lady GaGa have a more “real” fame than his band do because they are attractive women.

“Their fame is more a real thing,” he said. “And with people like Beyonce and Lady GaGa … well it’s different for girls. If you’re very attractive you get more attention, you need more attention — like Beyonce. People would star at her if she was a bus driver.”

But the 34-year-old singer insists Coldplay — who are also made up of guitarist Jonny Buckland, bassist Guy Berryman and drummer Will Champion — never get recognised when they’re out and about in the street, not even by their own fans.

“I’m telling you, it isn’t like that for me – for us. People walk right past us. I’m not complaining. It may seem weird but I wouldn’t want it any other way,” he added.

“When we did our last gigs at the O2, I went there by Tube. I was with all the Coldplay fans and not one single person recognised me. It’s true. When I’m on my own it just doesn’t happen.”
