Chris Martin Tests New Music On His Kids

August 7, 2012 By:

Chris Martin has accrued so much money and prestige as the lead singer of Coldplay that he can afford to do whatever he wants when it comes to new music.

Get it produced by lizards? Sure. Have his 8 and 6-year-old spot check it during breakfast? Why not!

"Kids are very honest -- if they start singing a song it's because they like it. It's a great gauge," he told The Sun.

Kids are also the reason that Yanni and the Teletubbies are still plaguing humanity. Martin also discusses how his kids, Apple and Moses, keep him grounded (his wife, Gwyneth Paltorw, ain’t gonna do that):

“When we played Wembley Stadium I was like ‘Wow, now we are big rock stars’, but the next morning the kids were saying ‘get me some pancakes’.”

Oh, Chris. Do you really expect us to believe that you don’t have a Pancake Team on hand in the morning, lest you accidentally burn your holy hands on a frying pan?

No word on how the other members of Coldplay feel about Martin’s breakfast table brain trust, but I’m pretty sure they won’t be happy when Chris comes in to the studio demanding they start singing about more dinosaurs.
