Newsweek had an interview with Coldplay where Chris Martin admits he winced when Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, one of his heroes, labeled Coldplay “lifestyle music” — a dig at the band’s universality in films, stores, airports and Mom’s iPod.
Chris Martin: “We’re like an eager dog just yapping around their heels, and they’re trying to kick us away,” he jokes. “It’s like unrequited love. I’m in love with a lot of things. Some of those things love me back. And some of them don’t — and one of them is Radiohead.”
