Coldplay's Chris Martin has laughed off a personal slur by one of the world's most sanctimonious singers - Bono. The U2 singer playfully called Martin a "w--ker," a "completely dysfunctional character" and a "cretin" on live UK radio last week, as well as a "great melodist."
"I always thought he felt that way," Martin joked. "I think it's great that we're arch enemies. That's a joke too." Martin has long used U2 as the benchmark for Coldplay, with U2 saying Martin's band also keep them on their toes. The mutual lovefest continues: Coldplay are now playing U2's new single Magnificent just before they come on stage as a mark of respect.
