Here are some photos of Chris Martin a few days ago in London. He’s still traveling the world, promoting Coldplay’s new album (which many critics say is not all that great). I don’t know what’s happening with Chris’s love life at this point. I suspect that he and Gwyneth Paltrow are in the process of consciously re-coupling, although he doesn’t seem to be in a rush to make anything official. I think he really wanted Alexa Chung to be his new girlfriend, and maybe she balked? They were seen together a few times, and they were mysteriously in the same cities at the same time again and again… but whatever it was, maybe it petered out? Or maybe they’re just really good at going undercover? Or maybe Chris wants his cake and to eat it too? And by cake, I mean bacon. Chris gave a radio interview this week where he discussed how he eats meat these days and he’s no longer a vegetarian. Huh.
He was once named one of the world’s sexiest vegetarians. However it is an accolade that is no longer true for Coldplay’s Chris Martin. He revealed yesterday that having ‘consciously uncoupled’ from his marriage to Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow he has also relinquished the vegetarian lifestyle that came with it and is now once again a carnivore.
The 37 year-old British star let slip about his change in diet during an interview with Steve Wright on Radio 2 yesterday.
‘I am not really vegetarian. I eat meat. I was vegetarian for a long time but for various reasons I changed. My daughter [Apple, 10] has been a vegetarian since she was born. I keep getting tempted to go back but I don’t eat too much meat.’
Warming to his theme he then bizarrely said: ‘The honest answer why I changed is because I thought you can only eat something that you should be able to kill. I don’t why I am talking about this. I have got to stop as there will be some sort of headline. I mean ‘Could you kill a fish?’ I would not like it but I probably could eat the fish…or a giraffe… I have been called the world’s sexiest vegetarian. I don’t think I am the world’s sexiest singer. I think I came about 17th.’
Miss Paltrow’s enthusiasm for following a vegetarian diet is well-documented and she has written a cookbook and blogged about the health benefits of following a diet rich in plants and seeds.
I don’t even know if Gwyneth considers herself a vegetarian anymore. I think that was just a phase, because didn’t her first cookbook include some meaty recipes? I seem to remember something about sausages? No, Gwyneth’s thing isn’t “vegetarian/vegan/microbiotic” anymore – she’s just obsessed with limiting her food overall. I still don’t know what Chris is talking about though. He stopped being a vegetarian because he wanted giraffe meat?! Something like that. And why is Apple a vegetarian… but Moses is not? Does Moses get undercover bacon from his dad?
