    Q. Dear Oracle, Last week I saw a Coldplay interview in this TV programme called "Boombox All Access" in Boomerang channel, so I was wondering: were Coldplay interviewed in the Beehive or in The Bakery?

    The Oracle replies:

    The interview took place last week in The Bakery.

    Q. Dear Oracle, as you didn't answer any of my questions (probably because they were not importantly enough) I just wanted to try again and make you a question of great importance for me and thousands of Coldplay fans in Argentina. Do you know in which hotel are the guys staying in Buenos Aires? It would be great if you could answer this. Thank you!

    The Oracle replies:

    I am so sorry but can you imagine if we gave hotel details out? There could be potential pandemonium at the hotels which would then cause mayhem for the staff and other guests - not cool. Anyway, it's not standard policy to give out any travel details so I promise it's not me (or anyone) being an ass.

    Q. Hello Oracle. I hope all is well. So I have been dating my boyfriend for one month now and I told him we needed a song. Because Coldplay is my favorite band I told him it should be by Coldplay or a Coldplay song. But the bad thing is, is that he doesn't like Coldplay as much as me. I want to make it a Coldplay song, but I don't want to seem to controlling. Should I make it a Coldplay song? If so, what song should it be? It would be really helpful. Thank you Oracle. Have a nice day.

    The Oracle replies:

    I hate to urinate on your parade or picnic but why pick a song by YOUR favourite band that means nothing to him and IF you split up that song will then make you sad rather than happy? Doesn't sound like a great idea to me, sorry! Pick something that means something to both of you; that's the whole point of "our song" surely? Maybe something you both like or seems to play a lot when you're together or when you met. Given that was only a month ago yes it does seem a little controlling for you to pick! You don't have to have one straight away anyway, so why not wait and see what develops - with the relationship as well as a song materializing.

    Q. Hello Oracle :) I have a question...obviously. I read that when Coldplay was just starting out Sylvester Stallone asked them if he could use Trouble in one of his movies, but they turned him down. Other Coldplay songs have appeared in movies though..like Don't Panic in The Garden State. What was the difference between the movies? Why did they turn HIM down and not the others? I was just wondering...thanks! :)

    The Oracle replies:

    Sometimes refusal is because the film may not be appropriate or suitable for using their songs but it was nothing personal against Sylvester in the above case. Many producers etc. asked around the time that Parachutes was still a relatively new release in the United States. Record labels sometimes prefer to "exploit" an album through their own promotion and marketing means rather than agreeing to its use in a film early on. It was felt too soon at the time for any music to be used in a film. Consequently other offers were also turned down (FYI: Shallow Hal). Garden State was much later when the album has been out for a longer period of time.

    Q. Oracle, I've got a problem. My ex-boyfriend had some very inappropriate conversations with me while dating his current girlfriend. She recently found out this information and is blaming me entirely. My ex confronted me about it, and I had no idea that someone had told her. However, he is now claiming to her that nothing happened, and he is flat out lying to her. She is having trouble trusting him, and I told him she really shouldn't trust him, and he got offended by this and is now blaming everything that happened on me, when he was the one who instigated the conversations in the first place. What should I do if I can't detach myself from the situation and I'm not the actual problem? How do I allow the truth to be exposed without all fingers pointing at me for being the cause of the problem?

    The Oracle replies:

    Well Veronica, I have to say that you need to let them get on with it and leave them both alone. It's quite clear to me that you still have feelings for your ex otherwise you'd have told him where to get off when he started sending you inappropriate messages. He may have instigated them but you didn't discourage him. I'm afraid you do have a part to play so can't claim innocence. Telling his current girlfriend that he cannot be trusted or that he is lying is not your business. You may want to detach as you're taking the brunt of the force but he's not the only one who can't be trusted is he? Maybe accept your part of the responsibility and walk away having nothing more to do with either of them. It's time to move on with your life.
