Chris Martin: I Don’t Care That Coldplay Isn’t Cool

Chris MartinChris Martin doesn't care that people think Coldplay isn't "cool."

The "Magic" singer admits the group - also made up of Johnny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion - have never been seen as fashionable but after scoring the fastest-selling album of 2014 with Ghost Stories, they have proved they have longevity.

"We have never been the coolest thing or the most fashionable thing. Well, maybe for a period. It just feels like we're able to keep rolling and no-one really notices. I feel like every day we're given is a real blessing. I could not have asked for a more dreamy job," Chris, 37, said.

Although the band have had repeated success and toured the world, they realize that Coldplay may not last forever, according to the Daily Star newspaper. "If we're in that place in 10 years, that's amazing. But if we're not, that's okay," Chris said.

The singer has always promised he would not split the band up to launch a solo career and admits he's even had nightmares about sacking their drummer Will. "I woke up in a cold sweat and I called Will. From that day forward, we've always shared all the money and all the credit," he recalled.

The frontman, who split from wife Gwyneth Paltrow, 41, recently, has revealed the band are not planning to tour this year to give them a break from gigging. When talking about their new album, he also told BBC Radio 1, "What Ghost Stories means to me is you've got to open yourself up to love. And if you really do, of course it will be painful, but then it will be great."
