Matt Bellamy “believes” his songs

Muse frontman Matt Bellamy goes to great lengths to engage with a live audience. He even puts himself inside the songs when he performs them.

The singer, who is engaged to actress Kate Hudson, admits that he has problems relating to his lyrics from past records – scarcely recognizing them as his own – but when he’s on stage, he believes in them.

He said: "I love the music. A lot of people have picked up on some of it being tongue-in-cheek. But to me it's only tongue-in-cheek when I'm listening to it. When I'm playing it, I believe it man. I'm in there. I mean, 'Knights of Cydonia', I'm going with it into these strange emotions. So I can only assume people get that feeling too.

"But, I have to say, sometimes when I listen to our music or I hear it in the distance, I go, 'Is that actually the band I'm in?'"
