Washington: Chris Martin thinks that singers like Beyonce Knowles and Lady Gaga’s fame is ‘more real’ than Coldplay’s, because the female singers are attractive.
The ‘Coldplay’ frontman insists that even his band members are never recognised by their own fans, when they’re out and about in the street.
“Their fame is more a real thing. 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,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling the Live magazine.
“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 said.
“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,” he added.
