Obama loves Coldplay

London: British singer Chris Martin can`t believe that his band, Coldplay, is known to US President Barack Obama.

The winner of seven Grammy awards Chris said that "he was shocked when Barack Obama told him he was a big fan of his music", reports showbizspy.com.

"I met Barack Obama in the summer and one thing he said to me was, `Oh I have your songs on my iPod.` But I just thought, `Oh I bet he says that to every pop star he meets.

"I can`t get my head around the notion that the President of the USA would have any of my songs on his playlist, it is just too surreal," he said.
