Coldplay reveal they still get booed, but admit they can't please everyone
'Princess Of China' superstars Coldplay have admitted that while they've reached the dizzying heights of international fame, they still get booed.
In a new interview with the Sydney Herald, the British rockers explained that it's impossible to please everyone so they try not to let negativity affect their career as a band or attitudes as individuals:
"You can very easily become infected by the minority negative opinion. I was talking to my dad about Manchester United - the most popular football team in the world - and when they show up at West Ham they get booed. I was thinking, 'Well, it's the same for us'."
"When everybody is singing Paradise at the moment it makes me feel so alive and happy. There comes a point where you just accept that whatever you do, someone will like or hate it, so it's extremely liberating."
Frontman Chris Martin added that he's incredibly proud of his 12-year run with the group and wouldn't change a thing:
"We are incredibly blessed that we are - 12 years in - allowed to make whatever we want to make. That's extraordinary. Even in the film world you can't do that. Only a few people can do that."
